Max Factor Masterpiece Max Mascara

I am always on the look out for a way to make my lashes bigger. If I wasn't so lazy I would wear false lashes everyday, but since I am neither rich or a WAG, I think I'll leave it for the mean time. I have fairly voluminous lashes but I'm always on the hunt for a way to make them longer. I've been using an eyelash curler for the past few weeks and really enjoying it. I picked up a new lash curler for £5 from Tesco and it does a great job. I am a pretty devout Maybelline mascara wearer. I usually pick up whatever one is on offer or new out. I also have recently been enjoying the They're Real mascara by Benefit but I really hate paying almost £20 for a mascara! 

In one of my recent posts, I mentioned how Nigella Lawson was one of my beauty icons. She has beautiful lashes and brows so I went on a little mission to find out what mascara she uses. A 2007 Vanity Fair interview informs me that she wears (or used to wear) Max Factor Masterpiece Max mascara. Coming in at £9.99, it's very middle of the road and only a few pounds more than I would pay for the Maybelline one. I honestly have to say, I'm in love with this mascara. I have a real habit of putting too much mascara on which results in clumpy lashes but no matter how much of this I put on, I don't get clumps. It's also great for my bottom lashes which are usually ignored. The brush is quite petite and the formula is excellent. The only downside is that it has a very odd smell to the formula but in a way, it someway reminds me of all the products I used to steal from my mum as a kid.

A brilliant buy. No wonder Nigella likes it!
