I haven't purchased this in awhile as I usually buy Dior. However, after spending so much on Dior, I realized it isn't worth it because I can buy this mascara for more than half the price and it does just as good of a job. I wore this for 7 years and I loved it! I should have continued to use it! What was I thinking? My next purchase will be this mascara!
This mascara is amazing for thick, falsh looking eyelashes. The formula is quick thick but this makes is great for building up lashes and making them look thick and lush! I have tried countless other mascaras, like benefits, model one, bourjois etc..and i always come back to this one. Its around £10 from uk stores, however you can find it discounted from time to time. It really gives that falsh lash effect, and have had comments in the past asking if i am wear falsies (this is a big compliment!) will keep purchasing this product as its far cheaper than other mascaras and works beautifully! Stays put all day - the only problem is removing at night as its stays so well that it takes a good eye make remover to get it off - i use cliniques 'take the day off' eye make up remover.
I always come back to this mascara when I don't know what else to purchase. I have used it since I was 16. I love caking this stuff on as I love the dramatic effect and this does it well without the clumping together of the lashes and I particularly love the brush on this mascara. My only major major downside which I've noticed more as I have got older (which maybe because my skin is more oily now) is flaking, it drives me insane! I coat this on without it drying between coats and it still flakes even after it's only been on an hour so it loses a star for this, apart from that it's a goodie for me!
i kinda like this mascara, but is not the best i ever tried!
it gives me volume, but not length, make my eyes looks small and dull. Not really my favorite.
I really think that colossal maybelline is about the same or even better.
Compared to my two favorites ever "magnascopic" and "volume collagen loreal" i pick loreal by far, creates longer and more lashes, but formula is flaky at the end of the day...
Bottom line, not the best, not my favorite, wont buy again.
This used to be my HG mascara before M.F. disappeared from store shelves here in the US. On my last drugstore.com order, I bought a tube of this lovely mascara. I haven't opened it yet as I am waiting to use up all my other mascaras--they are only good for six months ladies--and then I will enjoy the luxury of 2000 Calorie mascara. I rate this higher than any Estee Lauder or Lancome formula out there. Max Factor is a great line. Those who complain they can't buy it in the states--just go on line! It's better than wasting gas driving to the store and I always spend less then I order things on line--too many temptations at the store.
This is definitely my all-time favorite mascara. I'm so depressed they no longer sell Max Factor in the states! This mascara somehow makes your lashes very black and full-looking without weighing them down. In fact, I've noticed that they make my lashes pop and stick straight up and no other mascara has done that for me. I generally don't use an eyelash curler, though, because my eyelashes naturally curl upward, but I do sometimes notice a slight weighing down effect with other volumising mascaras while this mascara doesn't weight it down at all.
I use MF 2000 calorie in black/brown and at the moment I'm addicted to the effect it gives my lashes. Natural, but not too natural if you know what I mean. It doesn't really clump, which is a huge plus for me.
very sad to learn this is no longer available for purchase in the united states. this has been my ultimate favorite mascara for over a decade. both the brown and the auburn shades are simply amazing. nothing has ever made my lashes look more beautiful. washes off easily (the non waterproof product, that is) and does not leave a residue after. no flaking, very easy to build up, just a fantastic product all the way around. when you stick by a mascara for over 10 years, you know they're doing something right. gutted it's discontinued stateside.
This is my favorite mascara. I use it nearly every day. I can layer it more or less for a subtle look or a more dramatic look. I get compliments on my makeup all the time and people always ask me what mascara I use. I love it.
Too bad this is not sold in the U.S. anymore....this was a staple in my bag for years!! Great volume without clumps, and very good staying power with no smears or flaking. Sad to see it go :(
Check out Cover Girl Super Thick Lash as a replacement, ladies.....both CG and Max Factor are owned by the same company, and those two mascaras are almost identical!
