Today we’re going behind the scenes on my fruit-shoot to show off the closest thing I’ve ever come to a gloss mascara, Max Factor Excess Volume Extreme Impact mascara. Please meet the star of the show, Tangerina, who I have plucked from obscurity. Also, you’ll notice the gorgeous Peaches lashes in 02.
So, here’s how the lashes look close up, without mascara. They’re long and sweeping but not too full.
And now, here’s Tangerina looking every inch the fruitermodel. Excess Volume is a double ended mascara, so I put on a layer of Extreme Volume and followed it up with the Dark Lacquer end. You can see there is definitely some sheen to the lashes after the lacquer stage.

I think actual patent looking lashes aren’t ever going to be possible – I’m not sure what chemicals you’d have to put in to get literally a lacquer shine, but this is definitely the closest mascara technology has come. Mind you, someone would have to be looking pretty hard at your lashes to notice it, but because it’s so volumising, they might well do that! Max Factor Excess Volume has launched today for £12.99, HERE, and if you want to join in the fun, you can post your own #Selfeye (see what they did there) to Twitter with the hashtag so MF can have a good look at your lush lashes.
