Mascaras aren't really something I tend to hmm n ahh over. I have short stumpy lil lashes so I've yet to come across something that makes them amazing. Til then I just use mascara for the sake of using it haha
I got this mascara in a beauty subscription box, I think it was Birch box but I can't be sure.
Anyway, let's say I'm not overwhelmed. It works just the same as any other mascara I've tried. Not amazing but not horrendous either, it does the job.
The only thing I don't like it about it, which puts me off buying it, is the smell. It's a scented mascara and I find its too much for me.

Ok so this mascara is a little pricey but I loveeeeee it really gives those long natural lashes doesn’t provide much volume but if your someone who loves long separated lashes this is for you with no crusty fall out under the eye and a great applicator really lets you get into the inner corner roots and edges worth every penny and will be buying again after I finish this one!

This mascara is slightly more pricey than some other high street mascaras but it is worth the extra money.
The wand and formula together create length and volume while avoiding clumping, making it suitable for everyday natural looks and - after a few coats - more dramatic night time looks.
I have very straight lashes which struggle to hold curls in place, but this mascara seems to do the job better than any other non-waterproof formula I have tried.
Overall very happy with this product and have repurchased it several times.

One of the best mascaras I've come across. It doesn't flake off, dry out or stays wet for a long time. It applys evenly, gives length and best of all a lot of volume! Will be buying this until they stop making it. Can always rely on max factor mascara

Bought this once before and loved it, purchased again and it was average so don't know if I've picked up a dodgy one or if they've changed the formula. Was very disappointed. Made no difference to my lashes except make them black.

I think this mascara is very good! It doesn't cause clumping and gets nearly every lash. The formula at first is quite watery but the more you use it the less watery it becomes. I would and do recommend this to others.

I LOOOVE this mascara purely because it does. Not. Clump. It honestly doesn't no matter how many layers I decide to wear. Next, it volumised my eyelashes without fail whilst also lengthening each lash. I would recommend this to everyone and considering it's from Max Factor, £8 isn't too bad.

Gives great length to you lashes, and volume!! Not expensive and worth the buy. I dont find it clumps together like some mascaras do, it doesn't ball either. It's buildable and isn't hard to apply. Comes in a few different colours i personally use the black.

This mascara was reccomended on an online article by Lou Teasdale so I thought I'd try it out. This is an amazing mascara that makes your lashes comes out thick and dark and it doesn't take too much to make them like that. However, sometimes they can go slightly clumpy, but this is just on the odd occasion. I'd definitely reccomend to people though and it is a great price too!

I really like this mascara, as it leaves my lashes looking longer, fuller and generally more 'defined' it is a mascara that can be built up to achieve the perfect volume in your lashes, but if applied in the wrong manner it can look 'spidery' or 'clumpy' i suggest applying 2 layers letting the first layer semi-dry befoee the second layer to prevent clumping (: x
