i really loved the colour and the effect of the product, but it honestly is, as many others have commented, impossible to remove. My makeup remover has never failed me in the past, but this particular product seems to stick to my lashes like superglue. if you want it to last long (meaning days), then i recommend it, but for a party, or for everyday use, i suggest finding an easier to remove mascara
I have read other reviews about difficulty in removing, may I suggest that they are using the wrong remover. I use Clinique (colour purple) and have no trouble, I agree that the brush is too large, but I carefully apply to outer and inner lashes . I have used this mascara for years
Being a contact lens wearer you naturally have sensitive eyes.
This products reluctance to be removed with either an oil based solution or wipes doesn't help - especially the next morning so for this reason alone I am disappointed.
This product is a life saver - however, I only ever use it on top of another mascara. On its own, I find the product gets sticky and can clump so instead I add a quick coat on top of another non-waterproof brown mascara. I can swim in the sea, jump in pools, cry and it STILL lasts all day! It definitely lives up to its name for me, but WHERE IS BROWN/BLACK IN WATERPROOF? The reason for the poor colour review is that it used to be sold but now I can't find it anywhere :( I'm still using my old tube, but once it runs out I'll need to find a new brownish waterproof mascara as black is too dark for me.
I LOVE what this mascara does for my lashes, normally they're all very straight and need curling vigorously before applying any mascara, but with this stuff I apply a coat to the ends of my lashes (they curl very slightly) and then curl he midsection of my lashes and apply a coat of the mascara. Apply a second coat a minute later and my lashes have literally gotten the length needed that I can literally look up, blink and can feel them brushing against my eyebrows.
I see a lot of people complaining about having trouble removing the mascara, and I can definitely relate to that with this product, but honestly, I can just sleep with it on, wake up and it's a little more crumbly, and wash it off with a bit of effort. For all that I have said I think that for me, with how stubborn my ruler straight lashes are, and how well this mascara holds the curl, it's worth it.
Texture excellent and is absolutely waterproof, however huge wand makes this impossible to apply on short lashes creating a right mess - have had to abandon using this product. Change the wand Max Factor and I would give this 5 stars!
Goes on lightly at first so you need to build up in layers for a decent thickness. Once on it's great, especially if like me your eyes water all the time. However I cannot find any makeup remover product to take it off. I literally have to scrape it off between my thumb and finger nails after washing. If I leave it on overnight I wake up with flakes of it stuck to my eyeballs. Not good if you wear lenses. Reluctant to recommend under the circumstances.
Used this product and the effect was very good, got the effect I wanted very pleased, until I tried to remove it, sticks to the eyelashes like glue, took over half an hour to remove it with various eye make up remover, two days later and still got bits sticking to my lashes, also some of my lashes have fell out,
This product should come with a warning, not happy
Waterproof mascara that is extremely difficult to remove
APPROVED04, January 2016
Does it last?
Value for money
Ease of Use
I was looking forward to using this mascara but found I had to apply and apply to get it looking anything like falsh lashes, even then it was too subtle. When applying makeup, when going to work, it needs to be quick and easy. This isn't!
Then when using my normal eye makeup removal products, which incidentally say they are adequate for waterproof mascara and always have been previously, I find it near on impossible to get the stuff off! I've tried for two days and it's still on and feels awful! I'm going to have to spend money on another removal product now, which is annoying. I would like MF to reply and tell me what I can use, to be honest.
Needless to say that this mascara will not be used again or recommended. Pity, I have used plenty of Max Factor products previously with no trouble.
It makes your eyelashes extend with a gracious coat of mascara giving a natural look that's not radically daft i actual got this in a free box when i spent so much in boots and i can say its been the best mascara i have had for a long time
