How to wear mascara day to night

November 16, 2016

On my days off, I’m not much of a make up girl, but catch me on a work day or on the way to an event and you’ll see someone who looks quite made up. Ok, to be fair, my make up skills are questionable at best as they are always put to practice between frantically feeding the cat, getting the child to school or navigating the car in traffic. Just don’t come too close and everything looks flawless. Come a little closer and you may see some patchy eyeshadow or unblended blush, however, the one thing you won’t see is clumpy or flaky mascara. Why? Because I am weirdly OCD about it, to the point that I spend half of my 5 minute routine expressly on applying it and making sure it’s perfect. Don’t ask me why this is a thing, it just is ; I cannot stand mascara that doesn’t perform well.

For this story, I reviewed the new Voluptuous False Lash Effect Mascara from Max Factor, in my eyes one of the best mascara companies on the market.

The False Lash Effect Mascara features the redesigned Lash Lifting brush with a spiral shape and long bristles designed to provide a beautiful lift and separation. The bottom of the rounded spiky tip is best used on the outer and bottom lashes to add that extra va-voom. The biggest selling point of this mascara is not relying on curling lashes but allowing the lashes to maintain their natural shape by lifting them and thus opening the eye.

I loved how natural this mascara looked when incorporated in my usual day look with just one application. I like my day make up to be very subtle, and my eyelashes to only be slightly enhanced;  I don’t like to appear too overdone and only apply mascara to my upper lashes for day. I loved how the Wonder brush coated, coated and combed each lash for an instant pepped up look that we all love, without seeming done up

For night, when going out, I really love piling on mascara on top and bottom lashes and emulating Brigitte Bardot’s bombshell eye make up. I used four coats of the new Voluptuous False Lash Mascara and even then I did not see any clumping or flaking. I danced the night away and my lashes came home perfectly done up, which is better than I can say for my lipstick!
