Max Factor Masterpiece Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara- Review

I am  always on lookout for a good mascara at affordable price -  Giorgio Armani was becoming a bit uneconomical, so I was excited when the new Max Factor Masterpiece Transform Mascara was released.  (Actually, I always get excited when I see a new mascara that promises volume for my lashes, and I  hardly ever buy any curling or lengthening  or what-else- they- can -do -these- days mascaras. I am lucky enough with my lushes, I suppose but sure you never can't have your lashes to thick or full. )

Not sure if you have heard, but this mascara made its first appearance at the Victoria Beckham Show for the SS14 and was used  by the makeup artist extradainnaire Pat McGrath as she was creating a natural look on the models and should couldn't stop raving about it!

Well if my favourite loves it, I must love it then too - I do have to admit that I haven't purchased any mascara from Max Factor since the Calorie 2000, which was my goto mascara for years, and I still think that its the best dupe for the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill.

Anyways back to this newbie!

“Our revolutionary new mascara instantly creates darker, bigger, more dramatic lashes thanks to the new instant impact wand – the small brush that captures and volumises every lash. Prepare for totally transformed lashes.
The instant impact wand holds product on the outside of the bristles, immediately transferring it to the base of the lashes in just one stroke.
Rows of rotating bristles ensure that as the lashes are brushed through, every eyelash is captured and coated.
The result? Lashes that instantly appear thicker and fuller.”

Here is the result with two coats

Oh yes, darker, bigger, more dramatic lashes.... I want it all!

Here are my observations.

The packing is quite sleek and luxurious looking, and the slim shape brush is narrowed tapered  with rotating  mini bristles - which are designed to coat every lash from the base to the tip.

After  I applied the first coat, I didn't see any drama or va boom lashes, but after the second coat it did made my look lashes bigger and bolder adding bit of length to them.  So yay!
- very black colour
- lasts all day without smudging ( even after my gym work-out)
- it comes off easy enough with an eye makeup remover
- gives a decent volume 
- lengthens the lashes

- it gives me bit of spidery lashes
- it doesn't separate the lashes enough for my liking

I love the overall finish this mascara gives, but still, four stars though, not five as I feel the mascara could be bit better given the price.

The mascara is priced at € 13.99 and is available at Boots.

Have you tried the Max Factor Masterpiece Transform High Impact Volumising Mascara yet? What do you think of it?

  1. I've been meaning to try this for a while but I'm not sure now 'cause I hate spidery lashes! I used to love their False Lash Effect mascara.
