This is the third time this mascara has been mentioned on here - yes, it really is that good! You can read our first impressions of it here. I think it's safe to say that we both still love this mascara. It holds up well on the waterproof front and really lengthens lashes well. I do think that it could give a bit more volume to the outer lashes but other than that it does everything it promises.
Once again we've already mentioned this mascara here. I think we both still think the same about it as we did a few weeks ago and I can definitely say that for me it has shot up the list of my favourite mascaras (although it still comes second to Rimmel Extra Super Lash). We do have a little trick to give your lashes even more volume so come back in the next few weeks to find that out.
Now Max Factor is not a go to brand for me and I don't tend to look over their range. But I couldn't let go a 3 for 2 offer in Boots, and after looking for a very long time I decided to sneak a peak in the Max Factor section. I was looking for a waterproof formula, which limited my choice as it was and I'm some-what of a bargain hunter, so I had to look in the same-ish price range to make the 3 for 2 worth while. Now being my only product from Max Factor, I have to say I'm impressed and may have to have a closer look at their stand next time I'm in Boots (I have their Excess Shimmer Eye-shadows on my wishlist). This mascara is brilliant when you just want something to go with every look, and not only volumising but lengthening and curl-holding too! And the waterproof powers managed to withstand a torrential downpour too!
I didn't actually realise that this was waterproof for quite a while after buying it and it was a very pleasant surprise when I found out. It is described as being able to resist "just about anything, water, heat, sweat, flaking, smudging, for 24 hours" and I think this may be true. It dries very quickly and does not budge during the day but despite this it does not need anything more than make-up remover to get off - pretty impressive! As for its waterproof-ness it certainly delivers. I have never had an incident with this running down my face in a downpour and it even stayed on in the shower once when I forgot to take my make up off. Definitely a good eyeliner if you're looking for black, bold and waterproof. Oh and it's also great for cat flick precision!
I spoke about this before in our favourites post, a nostalgic product which I have fallen back in love with. Like the Rimmel eyeliner, I didn't actually realise that this was waterproof until very recently but I did wonder why it left me with very fetching panda eyes - even if I do say so myself - after washing me face in the shower. Well that explains it then. Since then, I have pulled this out on the days when the British weather takes a turn for the worse (more often than not at this time of year). Just a brilliant eyeliner!
Stay beautiful x
