Mascara is something that I am super picky about. Because I am so picky, I have been using the same tube of Cover Girl LashBlast Fusion for way too long. Now my Cover Girl LashBlast was purchased when I lived in the states, over here it is the same as the Max Factor Fusion mascara. So I could repurchase, but for some reason I don’t like the idea of shelling out £12.99 on a mascara (gasp, I know, what can I say? I’m kind of cheap). So while lamenting about my plight to a friend, she suggested Rimmel Max Volume Flash as a more frugal alternative (about £6.69).
The packaging is cute and bright, no complaints there. The brush is a bit different from the Covergirl brush and I think I prefer the plastic Covergirl brush to this bristle brush. It’s not as easy to get to the smaller corner lashes without smudging the wand around your eye.
I found this mascara to be rather wet, but that may just be because I am used to using a 3-year-old mascara (ewww). It did make my lashes look longer, but didn’t define as well as the Lashblast Fusion, they were starting to verge on clumpy and I hate clumpy looking lashes with a passion. Overall though, I have to say this is a decent mascara for the price and I will continue using it.
What’s your Holy Grail mascara?
