Just when you think a mascara brush cannot get any more complicated, along comes Max Factor False Lash Epic Mascara to prove that, yes, they can! I’ve seen this style of ‘well’ brush before where the body of the brush has a central core plus exterior extensions but not with a ball one the end to get to those fine lines on the inner corners.
Brands like Max Factor do their research (I was highly sceptical about this, but it is true) where they invite women in to come and play with mascara. They watch how they apply, what they do, how many layers they go and what techniques they employ, and from that research, see what’s needed in the ultimate brush. The Max Factor False Lash Epic Mascara is incredibly unwieldy (I got mascara on the side of my nose!) BUT once you get the hang of it, it does work for a complete lash fringe coating.
The formula itself is looser than many mascaras and that’s what allows you to make precision moves with this brush before your mascara dries. You use the arch shape to apply first, the flat edge to coat and the ball to cover any fine, missed lashes at the edges. I think you need to decide how complicated you want your mascara to be because to get a full volume you’ll need to do the triple roll at least twice but if you love a precision lash and enjoy the minutae of perfecting your lashes, Max Factor False Lash Epic Mascara does actually do the job. It’s £11.99 HERE.
