Max Factor – Velvet Volume False Lash Effect Mascara
This post may contain affiliate links.
Max Factor is one of my go-to brands for mascara, for years I wore their 2000 Calorie Mascara before discovering False Lash Effect Mascara which then became my favourite. Max Factor mascaras are so simple and un-fancy, they do what they’re supposed to with a minimum of fuss, and this new Velvet Volume False Lash Effect Mascara* is no different.
Velvet Volume is different because it’s an anti-brittle mousse formula containing natural beeswax so it doesn’t leave lashes feeling brittle and stiff. The wand has very short plastic bristles that are quite widely spaced and has been designed to catch every lash, no matter how short or fine.
I’ve been using new Velvet Volume Mascara for a couple of weeks now and I really like it. It’s very black and I find it easy to coat all of my lashes using the plastic bristles. I do find however that I need to add a couple of coats in order to get the dense dramatic coverage that I like, otherwise my lashes look quite natural. As you can see from the image below I find it really easy to coat each lash right from the root using the Velvet Volume wand.
The best thing about Velvet Volume Mascara, and in fact all of the Max Factor mascaras that I have tried, is that they don’t smudge. I often get under-eye smudges from other mascaras, but I always find that Max Factor mascaras stay put on my lashes where it’s supposed to be preventing those dreaded panda eyes!
I really like this new Velvet Volume Mascara, although I think I prefer the wand on the regular False Lash Effect Mascara as it find that it delivers more of the product to the lashes in each sweep.
New Max Factor Velvet Volume False Lash Effect Mascara is priced at £11.99, and is available from Boots in 2 shades – Black or Black/Brown.
Did you know… that Mr Max Factor created the first ever mascara wand in 1958?!
