Max Factor’s #Selfeye


Max Factor makes some of the best budget mascaras on the market so I am always quite excited when they release a new one. And their new “Excess Volume Extreme Impact” mascara, launched this year, promised to be, despite its long complicated name, a really interesting product.

So what is this about? Max Factor’s Excess Volume is a 2-step mascara: Step 1 builds volume and Step 2 adds a gloss or lacquer top coat effect to your lashes.

For Step 1, Max Factor re-used the famous brush they created for their best selling False Lash Effect mascara a couple of months ago – an amazing brush to max out each and every lashes  – and a volume-bosting formula containing wax, dark pigments and volumising spheres to thicken lashes and help create this dramatic volume.

Step 2 is a glossy top coat to add on to your lashes once they are dry. This will create a subtle “wet” or “lacquer” effect for shining, brilliant eyes.

I also tried a combination of eyeliners from their new “Summer Look” : a fine black line to accentuate the eyes, a touch of shimmering gold in the inner corner and a long thicker turquoise line on top.
