It is always a good day when Max Factor bring out a new mascara. Although I wasn’t actually aware a new one was coming out, it was certainly a nice yet dangerous surprise when I was shopping just before payday. Max Factor never seem to disappoint me and this time is no exception. Max factors new Excess Volume is a double ended mascara, which normally I’m not too fond of as normally they’re just for show and aren’t very good, but instead of the stereotypical white and black ends, this one is both just a black mascara with different shaped brushes. The first end, extreme volume, is to lengthen and separate the lashes, and the second is to darken and thicken them.
After wearing this the last couple days out and about, I’ve noticed that black has started to transfer underneath my eyes, which is incredibly annoying. Although it’s a really good mascara, I don’t think the formula is quite there yet and for that reason I’ve changed my mind completely. It didn’t seem to transfer when I was just in the house, but under air conditioning at work it has been a complete nightmare. I truly love Max Factor so negatively updating this is breaking my little heart, but we don’t always get everything right, finger’s crossed for next time!
