Max Factor Vivid Impact Highlighting Mascara Expert Review ...

By Lesley

Max Factor introduce their innovative new approach to mascara, adding a splash of colour! Is it just a colourful story or is the answer in black and white? Let’s take a look…
Type of Mascara: Highlighting
Colours Available: Blazing Black, Moonlit Black, Karat Brown, Blazing Bordeaux & Blushing Blue
Price Range: Cheap
Product Claims:
Define your eyes with a base coat of legendary Lash Perfection mascara, then light them up with a flash of color in one of five subtle shades. Collect all couture color combos.
My Experience:
I normally stick to black or brown mascara as other colours remind me of the eighties too much and as much fun as I had, it was a hideous time for fashion! I was stunned by these colour combinations, instantly attracted to the Bordeaux shade as it’s my all time favourite red! However, I tested the brown as it would suit my fair complexion best.

The brown mascara went on smoothly without clumping and covered each of my lashes evenly and thickly. My next step was to apply the gold colour, I didn’t want to overdo it so I used it sparingly. I was impressed with the result, it looked quite subtle and I liked the way it caught the sunlight. I’m not sure I would use this every day but if you want to liven up your complexion this may be perfect for you!

Overall Rating: Good

Price: $6.99 at
