Rediscovering an old love: Maxfactor False Lash Effect Mascara

Monday, February 20, 2012

Hey Lovelies,

With being a beauty blogger I can be quite fickle when it comes to beauty products, one minute I'm saying I love a product but when it's used up, I find myself looking for a better alternative. I always think there's something better out there just waiting for me to try it. One product that I like to chop and change with is mascara's, there's so many on the market that all claim to do different things it would be a shame to not try out every one. I rarely re-purchase mascara's and the other week I re-purchased Maxfactor's popular False Lash Effect mascara after a two year break and even then it was only bought because Boots were offering a advantage card points deal with every purchase. Though once I got this home and started using it again I did wonder why I'd gone looking for better alternates and was reminded this was one of the better mascaras that I've used. Retailing at £10.99 this is a pretty pricey drugstore mascara but in my opinion it's worth the couple of pounds extra when compared to it's opponents on the high street. It has a big plastic wand which usually I don't like but because the wand is quite big I think it works quite well, it also has little bristles which separate the lashes to give you a false lash effect. Curling your lashes before is a must and I've really been enjoying using this mascara again, it's also great for the bottom lashes as it grabs each one thanks to the bristles.

I know this isn't a very technical review but I don't really know what else to say, this mascara works and I got the gold version which are limited edition to mark the Olympics this year, I'm not even that bothered by the Olympics but I thought the gold was prettier than the usual black version. I also wanted to get this post up so I could alert you all about a special Lash Hour which Maxfactor are holding tomorrow morning (Tuesday 21st February) Taking part at 11am (bit of a funny time which unfortunately I'll be in uni for) Maxfactor are celebrating the Lash effect mascara success with having a hour full of chat about all things lashes. The hash tag to join in with the chat is: #MFLovesLashes and there's going to be tips from make up artists and Maxfactor will be giving out 100 mascaras during the hour for the best tweets. It's definitely worth checking out if you're free at that time and tweeting any lash related questions you may have and be in the chance with winning a free mascara, definitely worth a cheeky look!!

So what's your favourite mascara? Have you ever tried False Lash Effect?

I hope you all have had a great Monday, I should of spent mine doing uni work but instead it's been full of making you tube videos. Oh well! Hope you all have a great Monday evening :)
