When the lovely Natalie sent me the new Max Factor Excess Volume Mascara Extreme Impact to review, I was really excited to see the new #selfeye trend popping on my Twitter news feed. I am so fussy with my mascaras, not by choice - my lashes choose to be short and stumpy so I usually find it hard to find a mascara that really gives them definition. Max Factors Excess Volume Extreme Impact mascara has two ends - step one and step two. The first brush is very thick but covered in tiny bristles - this gives your lashes definition by catching even your tiniest of lashes. The Step 2 brush adds volume - the large brush is incredible at adding thickness and body. The main worry I had before using the mascara was would I get the dreaded "spider lashes" look?
The 2 step mascaras that I have used in the past have usually left my lashes looking very cakey and flakey. Luckily, the Step one brush smooths out the lash hair and creates an even base before you use step 2. This equals non clumpy and even. My only issue is the length of the mascara wands are quite short so it does take some fiddling to get used to it, I am incredibly clumsy with mascaras but I did get used to the shorter wand length in the end. I think this is a lovely little mascara, the packaging is super cute and it's quite refreshing to see two different mascara wands work together to create length.
