Max Factor Wild Mega Volume Mascara - Review

The latest mascara from Max Factor is this rather curious looking Wild Mega Volume Mascara. 

Max Factor say 

If you've got attitude that can't be tamed, Wild Mega Volume Mascara gives fierce lashes to match.

  • Up to 3x volume*
  • The brush amplifies the inner and outer corner lashes
  • Loads and sweeps lashes up and out to give a wide-eyed look
*vs. bare lashes

My thoughts

This mascara had a hard act to follow as I absolutely love the Clump Defy Volumising Mascara and the results that it gives. The brush is an interesting shape, not one that I have encountered before. On the Max Factor website it gives instructions on how to use the brush - 

1. Use a lash curler for more lash lift
2. Apply around 20 strokes of mascara, moving the brush across the full lash length for corner-to-corner volume.
3. Wait at least 5 seconds before blinking, then reload the brush and apply a second coat.
4. Before the second coat has dried, apply mascara just to the tips of your lashes for even more volume.

This mascara had a nice consistency to it, I am rarely finding mascaras which are too wet or too dry these days which can only be a good thing. It didn't clump and true to its word it does give *wild* lashes. If you compare the results to the Clump Defy Mascara you can clearly see that the Wild Mega lashes are less even wilder and wispier, being less defined but definitely plentiful. The brush managed to pick up the tiniest of lashes on the inner corner and took out the outer lashes to a great length. I think it really opens up the eyes.

Personally, I prefer the brush of the Clump Defy mascara and the more controlled and even appearance of my lashes when using it but Wild Mega Volume does exactly what it says it will do, there is no taking away from that.

I was trying out the black/brown shade which was a great match against my natural lash colour but deep enough to accentuate them nicely.
