[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I’m taking you back to 2013 when Max Factor brought out a 3 day mascara – at one end, a tint, at the other an oil based remover. Revolutionary at the time but in our cleansing obsessed mood of now, unthinkable to keep your mascara on over at least two nights. I liked it. While that particular product no longer exists, the brand has 23 different types of mascara to choose from.

Max Factor Masterpiece Max Review

Masterpiece Max isn’t a new launch but came in Caroline’s beauty box so I’ve had a few tries of it already – for me, it’s a foolproof mascara for lashes that look deeply black but within a controllable formula that you can build, or not. The controllability comes from a little widget (thing) that sits inside the tube and scrapes away product from the brush as you pull it out giving you, hopefully, the ideal amount to go onto your lashes. I have appreciated that widget in this mascara because it applied pretty much the perfect dose first time. It’s a good thing that there’s nothing much to say about this mascara – it does the job, does it nicely, lasted the day, gave full looking, well separated lashes – all in all a very good day to day mascara.

Max Factor Masterpiece Max Review

Left eye is one coat, right eye is two coats so it can look quite natural and understated or a bit more impactful. You can take it to four coats. The brush is a spiky wand rather than a brush style, meaning that the mascara liquid can get to each lash rather than just sweeping over them in one fell swoop. This mascara comes in black, brown and blue and is £12.99 in Boots or Superdrug.
