      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great value for money and does exactly what it states! Great buy!

      So, when it comes to makeup I have a bit of an obsession! I buy all types of makeup and have duplicates of every type in my makeup bag! So, when I was starting to run low on my current mascara, I decided it was time for a mix up! So on my local food shopping trip in Sainsbury's I decided to pick myself up the new Max Factor False Lash Effect Fusion mascara (and a Max Factor powder which I will talk about in a separate review) which were on a buy 2 and receive 20% off offer. I brought my mascara home and the next day was very excited to use this product. I opened all the packaging and was just about to open the mascara itself when I noticed that I had purchased the Brown Black instead of just Black. Unfortunately, because I had slightly peeled the security tag down, although you clearly could see this had not been used they would not let me swap it over! So word of advice, never buy makeup from a supermarket! First and last time for me. Any how, I popped to my local Boots the next day and managed to pick myself up a black one this top.

      The product itself comes in a very cute and girly purple colour with silver writing. The tube is a nice size and the end of the tube so that you can hold the brush is very comfortable.

      My first thoughts when I opened this brush was oh no! On looking at the brush it was very round and looked as though the mascara was going to clump on my eyelashes! This is the one thing I try and avoid in all mascaras that I buy! Anyway, after all the trouble I had with buying this mascara it was too late to go back now so I began to apply the mascara. And to my astonishment, I was amazed!

      On applying the mascara it came out quite consistently. I must admit that my worries about the mascara clumping were slightly right. I like my eyelashes to look long but natural and dark. Every now and then, if you do not wipe the excess onto the rim of the tube it does clump quite a bit and may be over applied onto the eyelashes. I find that this is due to the inner part of the tube not have enough there to wipe the excess away.

      However, on applying my mascara I found that it made my eyelashes look astonishingly long! I have purchased many mascaras but for the price of this little gem, it is one of the very best on the market I believe!

      I find that this mascara does last quite a few hours however, if I was popping out after work I would definitely want to add another coat or two!

      The product states that it will lengthen and thicken my eyelashes and there were no false promised on this at all!

      Overall, this product is great value for money at £11.99 from boots but there are always offers on in many shops that would enable you to get this cheaper or with a freebie chucked in. It does exactly what it says on the tin and for anyone that would like nice long lashes and thickness without the hassle of false eyelashes (which I also love using) then this is the mascara for you! I will definitely not be changing my mascara product for a while!!!

      4.5 out of 5 stars for me! Only reason I am marking this down slightly is due to the slight clumping and excess!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Love it! its a must buy!

      I have been using Maxfactor False eyelash effect mascara for 3 months now and i still love it! I cant use anything else as the results it gives no other reasonable priced mascara does! It basically does what it says on the tin. Ever since ive used the mascara people come up to me asking if my eye lashes are real which is a huge compliment because without mascara my lashes are not long or thick

      The brush is big and is easy to apply with no thick clumps as i find thats a huge problem with other brands. The bristles seperate your lashes very well as i find many other brand make your eyelashes stick together which is a major no-no! You can also apply it over again and it doesnt give you that spider leg look. The overall expericence of appling this mascara is enjoyable and easy, especially for people who are not pro's at applying make-up, im not believe me!
      I loved the packaging as you can buy it in different colours e.g purple, gold and black my favorite was the gold as it looks great in my makeup bag!

      I always buy this product in boots for £12.00 but have seen it cheaper elewhere such as amazon and ebay as cheap as £6.00 but i am too impatient to wait for postage.

      Only disadvantage i have is that it does get abit flaky after a long day at work but no as bad as many others

      All in all i give this product a 10/10 as for the price you definatly cant go wrong

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great mascara which makes the lashes look longer and thicker

      I like to wear lots of make up, particularly eye make as I think they are my best feature. I very rarely leave the house without wearing mascara and I am always looking for one that makes my lashes longer and thicker. I have tried and liked the False Lash Effect Mascara by Max Factor so I thought I'd give the False Lash Effect Fusion mascara a go.

      What does the product do?
      It works on the same basis as the original false lash mascara which is to give you the appearance of wearing false lashes. This one attempts to pass its predecessor by both thickening and lengthening the lashes at the same time. It combine the special wand with a formula which contains the nylon fibres that are found in false lashes. It promises to double the length and volume of your usual eyelashes to give you a false lash effect. The product can be bought in either a black or brown shade.

      Packaging and Price
      The product comes contained with a purple tube which is thicker in the middle and which gets narrower at each end. There is a silver banding around the mascara tube and there name of the product is written vertically. When you unscrew the lid to see the wand inside, you will see that it has plastic bristles that are shorter at the tip and longer towards the end. The product will cost you around £11 although you may be able to find it on offer if you shop around. You can buy the product from stores like Boots or Superdrug, larger supermarkets and also from a range of online websites.

      My experience
      The product is easy to apply to the eyes. Although the body of the mascara is quite chunky, it is still easy to hold and to grip. The bristles ensure that the lashes are separated and it is comfortable to move the wand from the root of the lashes to the tip. As the bristles are slightly shorter at the tip, it makes it easier to apply to the shorter inner lashes. The product didn't cause my lashes to clump which is a pet hate and it made them look separated and individual. The colour is deep and dark so it makes my lashes frame my eyes nicely and it makes them stand out more.

      The product does make my eye lashes look a lot longer and it also makes them look thicker too. With two coats, my lashes are much better but not to the extent that they would be if I was wearing falsies! The product is gentle on my eyes and hasn't caused them any irritations, even when I'm wearing my contact lenses. The product stays put for hours although by the end of the day, there can sometimes be a tiny bit of flaking. When it is time to remove the product, it is easily removed using my usual eye make up remover.

      Conclusion
      All in all, this is a good mascara which lengthens the lashes and also makes them look thicker. It gives good colour to the lashes and separates them well to make the lashes look fuller. It doesn't clump the lashes but I do experience a little bit of flaking occasionally after a long day at work. I still like the mascara despite this and although it isn't as good as false lashes, it makes a massive improvement to my eye lashes.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Don't be afraid to keep applying the coats!

      When I needed a new mascara a couple of months ago I was looking in Boots to see what was on offer. do have a couple favorites from different brands that I occasionally go back and buy again but I am always keen to try new ones too. I noticed Max Factor had an offer on where if I spent £15 on products then I would receive a free gift which contained lots of mini make-up products. I checked out the free gift and saw that I would like every thing in it and so it was worth spending the £15 for the free gift.

      There was several mascaras to choose from by Max Factor but as I had recently been using 'false lash effect' mascaras from Maybelline, I was drawn to the same kind of mascara again but by Max Factor. They had their false lash effect mascara, but then also another 'false lash effect fusion' mascara. I wasn't sure what the difference would be except one had the word 'fusion' added to it. After a quick bit of research I found out the fusion one was the latest addition to their mascara range and so opted for that one.

      It is priced at £11.99 which is a little more than I would usually pay for a mascara but as it counted towards the free gift which contained things that I would actually use I didn't mind so much.

      Max Factor state that their "False Lash Effect Fusion combines Max Factor's biggest ever volumising brush with its latest lengthening formula to create thicker and longer lashes. For those girls who want an extreme lash look, they've come to the right place."

      When I first applied this I noticed how big the brush actually was and I wasn't used to applying mascara with such a big applicator brush. I wasn't too sure on the results at first and it didn't really leave me with a 'false lash effect'. However, I have since gotten used to using a thick brush and have been able to apply more on my eyelashes as a result and so this mascara has really grown on me! I think at first I was just a bit scared to apply it in case I did too much and ended up with clumped looking eyelashes. However, the more of this I apply the thicker my eyelashes look which is great for a night out. Even when I apply a lot of this it doesn't clump together.
      I also wear this for during the day and just one or two strokes for each eye is enough for a more subtle look. I always used to own at least two different mascaras, one for day wear and one for a night out. However, this can be used for both just by adjusting how much you apply on the eyelashes. I don't think this can be done with a lot of other mascaras I have owned in the past as I found the more I applied the more clumped and messy they would look.

      Overall I love this mascara and it creates a lot of volume as well as lengthening my eyelashes slightly. I would buy this if you want volume over length. When I have applied this on a morning my eyelashes still look just as good towards the evening and so there is no need to keep re applying!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Everyone should have this in their lives!

      Ok, so I have a drawer full of make up and have been trying to use up some of the many products that I have accumulated over the years. Amongst these were many mascaras; I have mainly lately been using up some Maybelline ones. I can't say that I have ever really found a great mascara to be honest. I have fairly short eyelashes and long for thick, long lashes but don't fancy wearing falsies!

      Once I'd used up my drawer full, I decided that I'd treat myself and headed down to Boots. If you don't really know what you are looking for, it can be a bit of a minefield as so many mascaras make such dramatic claims. I finally stumbled across Max Factor and decided that I would give one of theirs a go as I hadn't used them before. There were SO many to choose from, but I ended up settling upon the False Lash Effect Fusion as it claims to add both volume and length. I chose the product in black and it set me back a hefty £11.99. The packaging made it sound fab though, these were the claims that were made:

      False Lash Effect Fusion is the sister product to Max Factor's award-winning False Lash Effect. It fuses the brand's most celebrated and award winning IFX brush with an innovative fibre lengthening formula, which contains the nylon fibres found in real lash extensions along with lash plumping particles.
      The breakthrough result is up to 2x* the volume and length for 100% lash glamour. It's never been easier to create on-trend bold and glamorous eye looks.

      So it all sounded almost too good to be true. I got home and couldn't wait to try it out. The product comes in an attractive purple tubem with the Max Factor branding on a silver band and the product information writing also in silver. For the £11.99 pricetag, you get 13.1ml of product, which is fairly standard for a mascara. As I mentioned before, I don't have particularly long lashes so I always use eyelash curlers to try and give the impression of length. So I stuck to my routine and used the curlers before applying the Max Factor product. The lid screws off easily to reveal what looks like a pretty normal brush (mascara wands seem to come in all shapes and sizes these days!).

      The mascara goes on really easily and I honestly couldn't believe the results! I had long, beautiful lashes! It went on quite thinly so I wanted to add another layer before I was happy with the look, but I actually couldn't believe how well it had worked. My eyelashes looked stunning - long and lovely, but still natural.

      I use this mascara all the time as I am so thrilled with it. I can wear one coat for work during the day, and layer it up for a more dramatic effect in the evening. The mascara is long lasting and will survive a whole day at work and evening as well; but it still comes off easily at night as well.

      Overall, I would say that this mascara has been a real breakthrough to me and it's something that I can see myself buying again and again. Yes, it's not the cheapest mascara on the market, but it's the most effective one I have tried so far. Boots regularly do 3 for 2 offers on all make up, so this is something that I would try and purchase then to make it better value for money.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Would fully recommend this mascara to any lash type.

        I've been recommended Max Factor mascaras so many times, but the price point has really put me off. This mascara is ten to twelve pounds which seemed fairly expensive for a "drugstore" mascara.

        The packaging is a lovely blue purple colour with an extended bullet shape - stands out easily in your make up bag whether you can see it or not, which is a useful feature despite not being very compact.

        The wand itself reminds me of a comb - plastic with short spikes enabling an even spread of the product throughout the lashes. It claims to add volume and length, but I think it is more lengthening. The beauty of this mascara is that no matter how many coats I apply, it is near impossible to create clumps.
        I do apply 2-3 coats to get the most out of this however.

        It's not the blackest formula isn't my only qualm. But this mascara will take you from day to night.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I would recommend this product as I still buy it on a regular occasion.

        Mascara is one of my musts that I cannot leave the house without. I find that Max Factor do have an impressive range of mascaras and this one is one of their best. The brush has hundreds of little bristles to tackle every individual eyelash and really helps to separate them and hence create volume. I've bought this product in both black, and black/brown. I think the black version is great for nights when you want a dramatic effect on the lashes, however the black/brown is fabulous for during the day when you use more neutral tones. One of the disadvantages of this product that I have found is that after a period of time it loses its oomph and therefore its ability to create the 'wow' factor and a new mascara is needed, I think this is due to the liquid becoming thick and gloopy. I find that the product doesn't run easily when hit with water, however it is not waterproof so do expect a slight mark.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        My favourite mascara!

        **Max Factor False Lash Effect Fusion Mascara**
        This mascara is actually the sister product of Max Factor's false lash effect mascara, which is hugely popular and even won awards. I was a huge fan of the original version of this, however after trying this version (the 'fusion' one) I am in love! It is seriously my new favourite ever mascara, I love it, and you will soon see why. Colour wise, there are two shades to choose from - the usual black and brown. As far as I am aware there is not a waterproof version of this mascara available.

        **Product Claims**
        Max Factor says that this mascara has Max Factor's biggest ever volumising brush with a brand new lengthening formula - a match made in heaven! The formula of this mascara is described by Max Factor as being 'innovative' it contains plumping particles and nylon fibres, which are found in real eyelash extensions. Max Factor say that this mascara helps to create volumised, thick lashes, while making them noticeably longer too - to be specific, they state that the mascara makes lashes appear two times thicker and longer than they actually are.

        **Price, Value For Money & Availability**
        This mascara is very widely available, i've seen it in Superdrug, Boots supermarkets and it can also be purchased from several websites. Prices vary from £8-£12 depending on where you buy it from which is quite expensive considering this is a drug store brand of mascara rather than an up market brand. I bought my mascara from Boots as they had an (ongoing) 3 for 2 offer on and I paid £11.99, which I think is very expensive for a mascara but considering the quality it is well worth it and it lasts well too - I have had mine since last summer and there's plenty left and the formula is good as new - it's not dried up or flaking at all.

        **Packaging/Physical Appearence**
        The mascara comes in quite an eye catching, vibrant purple tube which is noticeably chunky - it's not a thin, long tube, which I like as it stands out from the crowd and I also find it easier to hold as it's not fiddly. The mascara has the product name written on it in elegant silver writing and the lid simply screws off. The mascara wand and brush are attatched to the lid and the wand is very thick. The brush is much bigger than any of my other mascaras however it's not off-puttingly big. It is not curved and it's quite simple in design with lots of short rubber bristles. Each tube contains 13ml of mascara.

        **My Opinion**
        Max Factor say that this mascara is ideal for girls who want extreme lashes, which is why it appealed to me - I am a huge fan of false lashes, but lets face it - applying false lashes is too time consuming to do everyday! This mascara seemed ideal to help me achieve big, volumised lashes with little effort, and after reading a few different reviews on various websites I decided to buy it. Max Factor definetly 'big up' the mascara and I was a little concerned that they were all mouth no action, however after trying it for myself, I can say hand on heart that Max Factor are not over exaggurating about how great this mascara is. I love the chunkiness of the design and the big brush is a nice feature. The bristles are precise which avoids clumping and they grip my lashes well, spreading the smooth, clump free formula onto my lashes from root to tip evenly and generously without overdoing it.

        After one layer I can see a difference - my lashes look noticeably longer yet still natural, the thickness isn't hugely different but there's a subtle amount of volume added. I usually use one to two layers during the day time and if i'm going out I pile it on! I usually use around 8 to 10 layers if i'm going somewhere special and this is enough to make my lashes look amazing! It adds so much more thickness and length yet some how it still looks reasonably natural rather than over the top. No matter how many layers I apply it doesn't clump or weigh down my eyelids and it looks nice on my lower lashes too - I often have trouble applying mascara onto my lower lashes as it seems to make them curl or clump together, but this mascara's brill.

        I love how lightweight and smooth this formula is and it's not got that unpleasant overlly wet feel to it. It doesn't take long to dry and the lasting power is very impressive - I haven't experienced any flaking or smudging on a day to day basis in the few months that I have been using it and it lasts all day while still looking fresh. I also love how versatile it is as it can look natural with one or two coats or big and bold with a few more coats. It does create lovely big lashes, however if you want huge lashes that look obviously fake then this isn't for you - it makes my lashes look big but not fake or over done. It works well with false lashes though and it doesn't dry them out, although i've only worn this with falsies a couple of times and that was only because I wanted a very over the top look.

        I have this mascara in black, and it's a very dark, rich shade of black which emphasizes my eyes, which is always a plus side to any mascara! As I mentioned briefly before in my review, there is not a waterproof version of this mascara which is a down side - it means I can't wear it if i'll be outside when it's drizzly or raining and I can't wear it when I go swimming, however this isn't a huge problem as I usually wear this when i'm going somewhere in doors such as shopping, going out for a meal or to a friends house as I think it's the kind of mascara that makes lashes look noticeably bigger and better so it's not worth putting on if i'm just nipping to the corner shop if that makes sense! The couple of times that i've been caught in the rain while wearing this wasn't too much of a disaster and it smudged a little, it didn't run down my cheeks or anything like that! Removing the mascara is simple and it takes 1 or 2 makeup removing wipes to remove it completely.

        **Advantages**
        - Makes a noticeable difference to my lashes after just one coat
        - Adds volume, thickness and length
        - Eye catching tube, unusually large wand and brush which work well
        - Good quality, buildable formula
        - Long lasting
        - Doesn't irritate my eyes

        **Disadvantages**
        - Price - a little expensive for a drug store brand
        - The brush head may be a bit too big for people with stubby lashes
        - No waterproof version available

        **Overall**
        This is definetly a good quality mascara, and it's currently my favourite, which is a big thing considering how many mascaras I own! It's precise and gives a reasonably natural finish despite the length and volume it gives my lashes. It doesn't flake or smudge and stays on throughout the day - even after wearing it all day it looks fresh and it's also quick and easy to remove - 2 makeup removing wipes and it's gone! It doesn't irritate my sensetive eyes and I overall reccomend it.

          mascara

          Max factor false lash effects mascara fusion



          This is advertised as being the ultimate in lash glam and is apparently the first super-volumising and lengthening mascara in one.



          The mascara is the sister product to Max Factor's award-winning False Lash Effect and has extra lash lengthening formula, which contains the nylon fibres found in real lash extensions along with lash plumping particles.



          PRODUCT AND PACKAGING...



          The mascara is packaged in a purple tube with a slightly slanted screw on/off lid. Its nice and chunky so easy to hold and to use.



          When I unscrew the lid and take out the mascara wand the brush part itself is also chunky with the bristles of the wand being thick and close together. When applied to the lashes, I find that the bristles of the wand are nicely loaded with black mascara but not so much so that the mascara becomes difficult to apply.



          HOW TO USE THE MASCARA...



          To apply, dip the bristles into the mascara into the formula allowing them to be evenly coated and then apply the mascara to lashes. The formula is buildable so you can plump up your lashes or have them more natural looking depending on the occasion



          The mascara is not waterproof and so is easy to remove using normal eye make up remover





          PRICE AND AVAILABILITY...




          The mascara is widely available online and instores and whilst the RRP seems to be £11.99, it is available from cheap smells for £2.99, so its worth having a look around for the best price for the product.



          VERDICT...



          The mascara is decent enough but I don't think it does anything dramatic to my lashes and I certainly didn't look as though I was wearing false eye lashes. It is easy to apply and lashes are evenly coated with very black mascara. I think it makes lashes look slightly thicker rather than longer.



          The mascara hasn't lasted very long and with daily use I found that it had almost dried out after 6 weeks or so, so don't expect it to last for a long time.



          Decent enough mascara but nothing special and not one which I would rush to buy at full price.



          Thanks for reading



          Daniela xx

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Would recommend, but it does have some negatives

            Last year, or maybe it was just earlier in this year, I can't really remember, I bought the Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara from Boots. It cost me about a tenner which is what you should expect to pay for the average mascara on sale at Boots. I have tried loads of products from Max Factor before and its a brand I've become familiar with and grown to love. I'm a bigger fan of their foundations than their mascaras, although I do like some of their mascaras. Their "false lash effect" mascara was a bit of a disappointment though. I thought that the brush was just too chunky and I found it awkward to use, and the end result from using the mascara always seemed to be a smudgy mess which didn't look very attractive.
            I bought the fusion mascara simply because it was on eBay for a very low price of just £6. I love trying out new beauty products and I hadn't tried this one yet. Even though I suspected it would be very similar to the false lash effect I couldn't resist buying it to find out for myself. Besides, I argued to myself, at such a small price, it was worth a try.
            Despite this looking almost identical to the false lash effect mascara, I hoped there would be better. It promises longer lashes as well as bigger volume.

            The first thing I noticed when I pulled out the wand of this mascara is that the brush is very similar to the brush you get with the false lash effect mascara. I used it and found that it wasn't too bad to use. However after having this for a couple of months now I can say that the longevity of this mascara isn't very good at all, because after just a few uses the mascara started to get very sticky and felt like it was old and needed replacing already. But up until this point the effects had been very nice.
            It is true what it says on this mascara, that it gives you longer looking lashes as well as volumising your lashes. Because my eyelashes looked longer and full of volume after I had used this. I would say it is definitely better for acheiving volume than it is for acheiving length. My eyelashes do look much better when I'm wearing this mascara than they do when I'm not wearing this mascara. But the only thing is, I can get similar results from loads of other mascaras out there, so this lacks something special to put it above the rest, it is just average, one of many, and nothing partciularly amazing. However it will do for a good mascara.

            This does have some negative points, for example it smudges very easily. It is definitely not waterproof and you could never get away with wearing this swimming. It is bad enough trying to wipe it from under your eyes after standing in light rain outside or even just in humid areas! And as I already mentioned, it also got sticky very quickly.

            Overall for the price I got this for I would recommend this.

            A great beauty buy

            Like all women I have bits which I hate about my body and bits which I find more acceptable. In my opinion I would say my eyes are my best feature and therefore I take great pride in 'dressing them up' as well as possible.

            I'm very lucky to have very long eyelashes. In fact people regularly ask what brand of false eyelashes I wear because they are so long and full looking. I have to admit it does boost my confidence a little considering I have a very low opinion of the rest of my face and body! However, having long lashes can sometimes be a pain and only those people who have long lashes would understand. I struggle with buying good mascara for several reasons. I need soemthing that is strong and will hold my lashes up and keep them up. Now I'm a mummy I don't have time to constantly re-apply layers to hold my lashes up so one application needs to get me through the day. I also need them to hold my eyelashes up because otherwise I can see my eyelashes if I look up or if I wear glasses they touch the lenses which is really irratating-see, I said you would only know what I meant if you had long lashes!

            Because of this I've tried many mascaras over my time and to be honest I don't have loyalty to any particular one any more. For years Max Factor did the best mascara I've ever used but it was discontinued last year so I went back to buying a different one every time mine ran out. My latest is Max Factors False Lash Effect Fusion mascara.

            The genious behind this mascara is in two parts. The first is it's huge round volumising brush. I have found in recent years that manufacturers are really experimenting with brush sizes and shapes in mascara. This one is thinner that the ends and very thick and round in the middle and has rubber like long bristles to coat your lashes. It's curvature is that of your eye and matches the same curve you would ideally want your lashes to show. The second part of it's genious is it's ultimate length formula. Somehow it lifts the lashes enough to look like it's added length-thus creating that beautiful falsh lash effect that it's named after.

            The mascara itself is quite thick which I think always helps to provide a falsh lash effect. It wouldn't need much application to look like you are wearing mascara. Howeve rif you like a more natural look and don't like heavy lashes this isn't for you because it really weighs on your lashes and if you aren't used to that then I can guarantee it's a change you wouldn't appreciate. The colour is bold though, very thick pure black and it doesn't waver during the day. It's colour remains the same and doesn't add to it's need for re-application.

            During the day I only really apply make-up once a day now I'm a stay at home mum. When I worked I would re touch up during the day when I felt I wanted or needed to. But now I don't see the point as my son loves me regardless of how much mascara I wear! However luckily enough though my mascara will last the duration of the day without making me feel it desperately needs touching up. By the end of the day the lashes will have lost a lot of the strength but still are adequate and this works for me. However ona night out I constantly re-apply and this makes my lashes look amazing! It makes me look like I've got beautiful falsh lashes on and really frames my eyes very well! I can't fault it for daytime or nightime wear!

            Removing the mascara is simple, most make-up removers take it off with ease and I use baby wipes to remove my make up and these take it off just as easily. Because of it's thickness you do need to really rub and change tactic half way through to clean the whole lash. this takes time but otherwise you wake up with panda eyes which is never nice!

            My experience with this mascara is one I would rate five stars! The mascara comes in various shades and can be bought in waterproof variety if needed. I bought mine for £9.99 and it's usually available in good make-up retailors for that price or roundabouts. This mascara does everything I need it to do and it works really well for me. I can't fault it and it's one I would buy again! However like I said if thick mascara and heavy eye make-up isn't your style then I wouldn't recommend this mascara as it wont suit your likings.

            Recommended by me though! Enjoy your falsh lash effect with this with ease and without having to actually buy falsh lashes!

            Good value mascara

            Just like most other women; mascara is an essential in my make-up bag! I am forever changing my mascara to try and find the right one. I went into Boots to try and find a mascara that would make my eyelashes look a little bit longer as well as making them look a little more volumized.
            This Maxfactor mascara caught my eye staright away as I was browsing. It's bright purple colour stood out amongst the rest of the mascaras so I picked it up to see what it had to offer.

            This Maxfactor mascara comes in a 13.1ml tube which just simply has the name of the product on the front: 'FALSE LASH EFFECT FUSION Volume and Length'. As you probably would have guessed I bought it straight away as it was exactly what I was looking for (volume and length). The mascara was priced at around £8 which I thought was quite reasonable if it worked.

            After rushing home and trying this new product, I would definitely recommend it! The applicator itself is not a soft brush, it has short plastic brissles; this is good for seperating your lashes. When I applied the first stroke of mascara on it left no clumps and still made my lashes look long and a little thicker than they originally were. Although I would recommend to put a second coat on your lashes if u want them to look very volumized.
            I wouldn't say that this mascara makes you look like you have the perfect 'false lash' effect but it certainly makes your eye lashes look a lot more noticeable and it is better than buying false lashes all the time as you will save a load of money! This mascara lasted me a whole month and I use it everyday.

            Overall....good value for money!
