Review: Maxfactor 2000 calorie mascara

 Holy moly! Another beauty review!
And I swear I'm not hating it!

So. I don't have a thing with mascara.
I have pretty much sensitive eyes and
it gets itchy, teary and red, and I just
can't resist it but to rub my eyes. And
you see people thinking that this girl got
ditched, these panda-eyes as results for
rubbing are not flattering at all. So I
tend to leave my eyes blank.

Cheap make-up somehow does not
like my eyes either. I definitely need
good products with minimum chemical
ingredients.

Today I'll be reviewing the Maxfactor 2000
Calorie "DRAMATIC VOLUME" mascara that I got it
 from Sue's giveaway!

CLAIMS: to be 300% volume-adding and smudgeproof. Maybe I can rub my eyes with ease now?


Volume: ♥♥♥♥• 4/5 I think the 300% is abit overrated. Other than that, I think it really volumized my lashes!
Smudgeproof: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5/5 after letting it dry for 3-5 minutes, rubbed my eyes and no smudges were noticed! 

Top: price, volume, 2 colors (black/brown), quite easy to remove with water and soap
Con: eyes got irritated at end of the day, smells chemically, dries pretty quick so need to apply fast

  1. i didn't like this one very much, because it was somehow too thick and tend to get very clumpy, especially after u have used it for a while (maybe bc it dries very fast?) ...in general, i find most mascaras that promise extensive volume tend to create those clumpy lashes =/

    i've been using the max factor masterpiece waterproof for many many years now, and i love how it gives volume and also defined lashes :)

  4. Same problem here haha ja wat is mascara een irritant iets voor aziatische ogen haha.
    Ik kies zelf liever voor de eyeliner dan de mascara, maar het kan wel op z'n tijd.
    Leuke review!

  8. I like the curl it gives! I'm deathly afraid of eyelash curlers so I'm always on the lookout for a mascara that curls :') I tend to not put mascara on the bottom lashes since they always seem to smudge there > <

  15. Hooray for beauty posts! I am starting to hoard mascaras (eeeek), so maybe I'll buy this. It looks great on your lashes! Won't hurt to try some more natural beauty products, but there aren't so many out there it seems.

  16. the mascara looks amazing! *^* But I stopped applying make up for some time now because either I'm too lazy or I just want my face bare so I could sleep without worrying (I sleep in class most of the time LOL) XD anyway, hihi great review dear! <3

  24. Oh sweetie this mascara has a big volume to your lashes. It´s a cool product I don´t feel lucky with the las mascaras because they´re don don´t have a big volume to my eyeslashes. Many thanks for share with us this review.

  25. nyaaaa I totally know what you mean with the eye rubbing thing :D I love to rub my eyes too and it's definitely a downside of mascara that you can't do it.. You look pretty in that jumper Mei~ The cherries are so cute! Love the packaging of the mascara. it looks much better that the fat one I have.. lol

  27. This mascara defines your lashes very well. Too bad it irritates your eyes >-< I don't understand why beauty brands always exaggerate the claims of mascaras -.-"

  37. i thinks this is a good one, you can tell the difference between with and without. and yes probably 300% a little overrated, but marketing sells right?
