Max Factor Excess Volume Extra Impact Mascara Tried and Tested

Make your lashes reach the sky wiht Max Factor Excess Volume Extra Impact mascara

It’s been on my to grab list since I first read an exclusive review back in December 2013. So what is it? Only the hottest mascara product of 2014 – Max Factor Excess Volume Extra Impact mascara.

The mascara uses a unique formula that helps to really boost and volumise lashes. With one end designed to volumise lashes and the other end to add a shiny lash holding lacquer, the product is designed to last.

Max Factor Excess Volume Extra Impact mascara review

On applying the volume section I was surprised at how thick and lengthened my lashes were almost as soon as I started to apply the product. I applied several layers to both top and bottom lashes, and it’s recommended to apply whilst the mascara is still wet. I did find the first mascara made my lashes really sticky and they seemed to stick together and clump a bit. After the volume mascara I added the unique lacquer to add a intense black colour and seal the volume in. Despite applying several layers I don’t feel it really made any difference to my lashes and they looked the same as when I applied the first mascara.

The one big downside to this product is its difficulty to remove. The ingredients used really make the mascara ‘stick’ and you have to rub a lot to get this product off at night. At £12.99 this is one of Max Factor’s more expensive products and with its difficulty to remove it does let the product down.

I give it 3/5.
