It's not often that you find me blogging about make-up as it's just not my "jam". That is until a product comes along that my enthusiasm oozes for- so much so I can't not talk about it and today that is the Max Factor 2000 Calorie mascara.
I've actually been using it for a couple of years now but I've never seen anyone rave about it and I can't help but wonder why? So this has led me to want to champion it and be like oi! This stuff is good!! So why is no one else raving about it? Perhaps it's because its not new and fandangled, the packaging isn't fancy and it's not claiming to give you brand new eyeballs? either way it's not a mascara to take for granted...
When wearing this mascara in the past I've been asked the following:
Are you wearing individual false lashes?
Are your eye lashes real?
How do you have the patience with false lashes every morning!?
If these questions don't tell you that this mascara is good then I don't know what does but I shit you not, those are genuine questions I've been asked!
*TOP TIP: With an angled liner brush, line the base of your lashes with black eye shadow to make them appear fuller and thicker at the root.
I think in essence it's a combination of the formula and the brush that make this mascara the tits. The wand has a bristle brush that coast the lashes with the perfect amount of product to give you full, voluminous lashes without them clumping or looking like spiders legs. The consistency is also amazing from the word go, unlike other mascaras which can take a while to warm to the formula or you're waiting for it to go off a bit first. Nope- none of that rubbish with the 2000 calorie!
So, there is one draw back to this mascara in that it's not a waterproof consistency but honestly I've never really been that fussed anyway and rest assure once it's applied, it stays put. There's none of this flaking off in the day nonsense and if you have a tendency to tear up over a rom com or an advert like I do- don't worry! It stays put and doesn't stream like the rivers of Babylon unless of course you rub your eyes...
Another HUGE plus to this mascara is the price point! Coming in at just £7.99 the cost is flipping amazing and for me that's just a bonus. I'd have been happy to pay £12 easily so that's just another brucey bonus to this mascara.
I think overall I have to reiterate that this mascara is SO UNDERRATED! I think nowadays everyone is looking for the next best thing that is bigger and better than but actually the mascara you're looking for is right under your nose and at a fab price point. If it's not broke, why fix it ye know? Plus it's been on the market for years and it's still here so that just proves its an oldie but goodie!
