I really like the original False Lash Effect, so I tried this one out too.
As far as I can tell the brush is the same as the original, which I love.
It's impossible to take off of my lashes. I use baby oil then makeup remover and it still takes a lot of time.
The formula is a bit watery, but the biggest problem is that the wand picks up way too much of it. I think that is why a lot of people dislike this mascara. But once I take the excess off the wand (a lot, about 80%...), then it works great!
In terms of formula and quality, this is an okay mascara. I have no complain and nothing to rave about. I just don't like the packaging, it's big and unpractical.
I hated this mascara! Normally a huge fan of MaxFactor Mascaras, this one didn't thicken up my lashes (though I only used it twice, that was enough for me to dislike it & stop use) & it was impossible to get off without removing my lashes with it even with an oil based cleanser. Day 2 I still had residue of it on my lashes & all under my delicate eye area - I looked like I had a bruise or tired bags! I'd prefer just to buy water proof in this instance.
It looked amazing on, but made my lashes hard, brittle and crunchy. Was absolutely impossible to remove, even with Estee Lauder's Gentle Eye Makeup Remover, made me lose some of my eyelashes as well. I would not repurchase.
I was looking for a mascara that would HOLD A FREACKIN CURL! All the other that i've tried either is too wer, clumpy, not volumizing etc. And guess what! This mascara does the job perfectly! It holds the curl for 24 hours!! I love that, but sadly it has too many bad sides.. Pros: hold the curl perfectly, and lengthens ur lashes Cons: smells horrible! Like paint!!, needs time to dry when applied or it will smudge everywhere, and the number one reason i wont buy again : worst enemy when it comes to removing it, 24 hours means foreal 24 hours.. Its my second day of using and i have lost at least 10 eyelashes, and my eye has become very sensitive... So do i buy a new makeupremover or a new mascara? Ofc a new mascara! Its too much pain in the ass to remove
This mascara really does lenghten your lashes+make you look as if you are wearing fake ones. However, due to this product claiming to last for '24 hours' it is an absolute NIGHTMARE to remove!!
I was looking to replace my lash blast volume mascara and since these should be similar I got this one from the drugstore. My mistake because I should have got the regular version, this works fine but the downside for me is that it's hard to remove! Even with oils this is hard to take off and my eczema sensitive skin cannot take that much rubbing. If you are looking for a long lasting mascara you should get this, because it's more long lasting then waterproof, this is hardcore! But otherwise you will be better off with the regular version and not this 24h one.
Love this mascara! It really is 24 hours, but I take it off with baby oil in the shower and it comes of right away.
ok. so this masara claims to give a false lash effect and i find it really does live up to that! i love it, it makes my lashed really big and dramatic which is the look i like,the packaging is the same as the other false lash effect mascaras from max factor. the difference with this version is the "24 hour" wear claim, well let me tell you it really does last 24hours. now this may be good for people that have a problem with mascara smudging as this doesnt budge, but it is also a curse because it is bomb proof! it is soooo hard to remove. the only thing i have found takes it off is mac cleanse off oil, and even then there is always some left on the lashes, this is the reason i wouldnt re purhase. to sum it up-fantastic results but imposible to remove
I had a really good experience with the first false lash effect mascara, but this one was pretty disappointing at first. I have really straight, short and thin lashes. Because the formula is so wet, it always manages to clump. It gives a bit volume, but not much length. BUT it does curve my straight lashes amazingly and that's why I'll definitely buy it again! With all the other mascaras my lashes were all straight again after few minutes, but this one keeps them curved all day. I can't say it's my favorite, because I have to use an other mascara on top of it to get more length and volume, but it is one of my favorites. I use it every day under my other mascaras, I would say it's a great base for my lashes.
