A few years ago the only mascara I used to use was Max Factor False Lash Effect in Black. It was (and still is) quite perfect for me - adds lots of volume, lengthens, curls and doesn't flake off. But then when I started blogging I also started trying lots of different mascaras and just forgot about this. Also truth be told, at $25AUD this is at the higher end of the "drugstore" mascaras so whenever I needed a new one I went for Maybelline or CoverGirl which were around $10 cheaper. But a few weeks ago when Priceline had their 40% off all cosmetics sale I thought I'd revisit my old favourite.
And it's still great! The thick wand and plastic bristles still give lots of volume, still adds lovely length and doesn't make my lashes crunchy. The the only thing I don't like about it is that it needs to be "aged". What do I mean by that? This mascara is slightly too watery when you first use it, so normally when I buy it I open the tube, use it a couple of times then leave it for a week or so. During that "ageing" time it gets thicker and coats my lashes much better than when new.

So will I repurchase? Yes of course, but only when on sale. Because I can't guarantee that next time I need a mascara ones in the $10-15 price point won't grab me first.
Have you tried this mascara? Thoughts?
