MASCARA MARCH – Velvet Volume False Lash Effect Mascara by Max Factor

This mascara guys.  This is my ride or die. I want to give a shout out to Vogue Australia for providing this as a freebie on their magazine one month.  Since the day I purchased that magazine I have been hooked on Max Factor’s Velvet Volume mascara; it is true love. Read on to find out why…

Volume: It gives a soft and natural volume that my long spindly lashes crave.  Adding a thickness to the base of your lashes that makes you look like your lashes are always that gorgeously dense. Max Factor claims it leaves your lashes with a “touchably soft feel”, and I totally agree.

Length: Does it really look like you have falsies on like the name suggests? Imma be honest, it doesn’t.  It’s not length to the extremes of say They’re Real by Benefit, but it still gives you some serious extension on your regular lashes.  Again, it’s a natural finish.  Something I personally prefer, especially for every day.

Colour: Usually I’m after a black-as-my-soul kinda colour to my mascaras.  This doesn’t deliver that level of pigment, it’s a softer black.  This has reminded me why I went through a stage of wearing brown mascaras for everyday.  This muted black makes this mascara perfect for everyday looks as well as those ‘no-makeup-makeup’ days; just added a subtle pop to your eyes.

Recommend? ’til the day I die.  People need to get around this mascara, make it huge, it’s amazing!! I honestly can’t say enough great things about it. LOVE! 10/10. 100%. Would recommend to a friend. A+. High Distinction.  etc.

Keep tuned for more Mascara March reviews!

Stay Happy,
