Ellis Faas Mascara Review

I wanted to write a review about Ellis Faas’ Mascara for a long time already, so here is is finally.

It comes in a signature “bullet” design which all my designer friends rated very highly.  I love the brand’s products a lot and always expect exceptional quality. And this mascara does deliver, in my opinion.

Here is, by the way, the image to support the mascara created by Ellis.  Those are clearly false eye lashes and, unlike a lot of other brands, EF doesn’t claim that you will get a ridiculously long and thick lashes, that is just a creative and fun image.

But back to the mascara. I would say that it is a lengthening mascara and actually, I have just checked, it is described as a lengthening one. Not that is doesn’t give any volume but it is great at giving length and separation.  And it is probably my favourite thing!

This mascara is not clumpy at all, even if I apply several coats, the lashes are defined but they don’t stick to each other, so I son;t need to comb through.

The other thing that I love is that Mascara is pretty long-lasting, it doesn’t smudge or

Illamasqua Masquara in Raven Review and Photos

While a lot of people say that if you want to save some money on makeup products – you should just get a cheaper mascara. Doesn’t work for me, unfortunately.

With my pretty short, thin and light lashes I need a miracle worker, and I haven’t yet found a low-priced mascara that would satisfy my needs for 100%!

Today I want to tell you about mascara that I have been using for the last several weeks and it’s Illamasqua’s Masquara in Raven.

First of all, I want to give some extra points to the brand for the coolest name ever, “Masquara” is  a great choice. I also like the price - £15, which is cheaper than most mascaras that do deliver. And, yes, Mascquara does!

As for the product itself, there are certain things that I love and certain things that I don’t like that much.

It gives a very intense black colour which doesn’t fade during the day.  The volumizing effect is pretty mind blowing, very impressive, the lengthening effect is also stunning.   I don’t like natural looking lashes, I want drama, that is still day appropriate, and this is exactly what I get.

Just make sure that

Most Requested Makeup Product. Can You Guess?

End of September – end of November are very busy months for me in terms of Birthdays of very special people!

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I like to find out what the person wants to get. Sometimes I’d find out with the help of other people but sometimes I would just ask.

I’ve noticed that very often my girlfriends ask for a mascara makeup-wise.  In fact, I had two mascaras requests last week.

I though that may be useful information as the holidays are approaching. And since almost every woman wears mascara, you can’t really go wrong.

Here is just a photo of some random mascaras that I’ve found in my personal makeup stash.

Ellis Faas mascara, Hourglass Film Noir mascara, DiorShow Ultimate mascara, Daniel Sandler Jumbo Jet mascara, Benefit BADGal mascara, Smashbox Bionic mascara, Lancome Hypnose mascara, Daniel Sandler Baby Jet mascara, BECCA The Ultimate mascara.

If you want a budget friendly variant, I’d recommend Max Factor 2000 Calories or Max Factor False Lash Effect, both are amazing!

Hello, ladies! I hope you are having a great weekend so far! Today I would like to review a False Lash Effect mascara by Max Factor. I find Max Factor mascaras absolutely amazing, and I’ve tried several of them and already reviewed 2 of them for you:

Lash Extension Effect mascara – review

Max Factor 2000 Calorie mascara -  review

But back to False Lash Effect mascara:

“Why fake it when you can get a false lash impact with your own lashes? New False Lash Effect Mascara doubles your lash size* with the impact of false lashes without the fuss. It’s this season’s make up artist must have. The secret is in the lash boosting combination of Max Factor’s biggest brush ever combined with patented Liquid LashTM technology. Now with every volumising coat the big brush sweeps right to the tips giving your lashes fullness and head turning attitude. The result is 100% impact. 100% you.”

*thickness volume, appearance vs bare lashes

So this is how the mascara looks like:

I know that so many Make-up Artists and other women love this products so I was very excited to try it myself. I’ve been using it for several months already so it’s time for a review.

When I just opened this mascara I was a bit shocked because of the brush wich was so huge with short bristles around it. I’ve never had any similar brush to this before so it was a bit uncomfortable to use it. But I always say that you have to give each mascara two weeks to make any conclusions. After some time of practice I’ve used to the brush and the results I got really impressed me.

Probably the best

“New Max Factor Lash Extension Effect (14 EUR) transforms your lashes into a dramatic fan of length. If you loved False Lash Effect for dramatic volume, you will love Lash Extension Effect for dramatic length.”

I’ve been using this mascara for a long time already and now I can share my opinion with you.

What I loved about this mascara a lot -  is the design. Really, it’s the best design of mascara that I’ve seen in a long time. By the way, this is not only my opinion.

At first  I did not like the brush which is very long (especially it was hard to  to use it after my favourite DiorShow Unlimited). But you should give each mascara at least 2 weeks to make your opinion about it, I personally don’t remember any that I’ve liked from the very beginning.

So how is this mascara in action?
