I have a new header and blog button now thanks to my awesome friend Masako, who is a wonderful artist. To thank her, I went skipping round DM buying lots of German cosmetics for her… I love buying stuff like this for other people. On the way round, I spotted this mascara which was being promoted – Max Factor Eye Brightening Mascara. I decided to treat myself!
The peeps down at Max Factor say:
The formula contains light reflective particles to add a subtle brightening effect, and gem-toned colour beads which customise the reflected light to enrich eye colour. The eye-enhancing formula has a black mascara base that wraps around each lash, working with the legendary Masterpiece ifX brush to give even, clump-free volume and definition.
Yeah, it sounds like a load of nonsense to me, too.
I know a lot of people on the net who are really against plastic mascara brushes but I don’t mind them so much. I realised that plastic brushes (well at least the Rimmel Sexy Curves mascara) works really well on Asian eyes – I did the makeup of my flatmate and it worked really well on her.
I’m not sure if my eyes looked extra bright with this… but I LOVE this mascara! It makes my eyes look like doll’s eyes! It is easily to layer, and I don’t even need that much eye liner on under it as it looks sufficiently pretty without it. It’s not clumpy at all… almost looks like I’m wearing fake lashes. And because it’s not exactly black, it looks a lot more natural, too.
See? It’s pretty awesome isn’t it!
I think I’m in mascara love!
