[Haul] [Review] Max Factor ㊣

All these things only cost me $33 =D! 
promotion -> $5 off each item
voucher -> $10 off
Free Gifts - samples and makeup pouch

(Left) '3 samples + nail polish + makeup pouch' are the free gifts of purchase

(middle) Masterpiece colour precision eyeshadow in Pearl Beige - I saw Bubzbeauty used it in one of her tutorials and I am a big fan of liquid/cream eyeshadow, so I give it a try and it's actually quite nice =)

(Right) False Lash effect mascara + Lip gloss + Dip-in Eyeshadow - they are from this year Christmas Set. I got them @priceline for $25. but I know now it only costs $20 =D!


I was in a dilemma between false lash effect and 2000 calories. eventually I got both =P
but  it does not work as good as I expected.

Max Factor and Covergirl are under the same company, so Last Blast and False Lash Effect are like sisters. No matter the packaging or the brush, everything is so similar besides I got covergirl lastblash (waterproof) 

Somebody are gifted with beautiful long and curly lashes, like MakeupbytiffanyD on youtube. But I am not one of them. My lashes are short and straight pointing down. I needa put a lot effort to curl them up!

False Lash Effect gives a nice volumizing effect but it does not lengthen my lashes. So personally I am not a fan of this mascara. If you have naturally long beautiful lashes and you are looking for a good mascara with excellent volumizing power, you may like this mascara.


I actually dont really like powder form eyeshadow because it is easy to get messy.

The finish is really dazzling and ye-catching but it has very poor longevity. I used Mac paintpot as a base but this eye shadow still wore off after an hour. Totally disappeared.

What cosmetics I've been wearing today


  1. nice lashes~~ it's so hard to find a mascara that we can absolutely love.. ha.. I still have not found it yet

    @ Read the story here. Please Help, Thank you.

  2. Nice haul! Too bad the Max Factor mascara didn't work out for you.

  3. Great look! Love the haul. I've tried the Max Factor mascara. I love how volumising it is without being too clumpy!

  4. Great haul and look! I don't think I've seen Max Factor anywhere where I live O_O

  5. i used to like maxfactor..but the problem, I hav with the brand is that once I like a color or something and get hooked on the color the color suddenly gets discontinued. it's just not a consistent brand that I try to avoid it. =(

  6. nice haul~ :D I remember that brand was my first mascara ^_^

    and also, those pics are from summer in Korea, that's why they're all in short sleevs ^_^ I'm just posting these really late :P
