UNDER REVIEW Max Factor Eye Brightening Mascara for Blue Eyes

I bought this on a whim. Normally, I steer clear of black mascara, I’ve always used brown – apart from bright blue and green mascara in the 80s of course! I feel brown is less harsh and more flattering for older eyes, especially if your natural skin tone is on the pale side.

But I do love the way black mascara ‘pops’ on blondes, so I thought this might be an interesting compromise. There are also mascaras for green and brown eyes.

Max Factor Eye Brightening Tonal Black Mascara, offers three individually designed mascaras for each eye colour. Each mascara makes their glamour statement by brightening your natural eye colour whether you have brown, blue or green eyes.
The formula contains light reflective particles to add a subtle brightening effect, and gem-toned colour beads which customise the reflected light to enrich eye colour. At the same time the mascara gives your lashes up to 300% more volume making sure your eyes have beautiful stand out.


A lovely mascara, makes your lashes look lovely – this colour is very subtle, and not so intense as a pure black, and for a mature woman is more flattering, but that’s just my opinion.

While I do not feel this mascara has the eye brightening properties it claims to, or at least I cant see it, it is a beautiful mascara. It lengthening and voluminous effect on the lashes that make the lashes look more defined in just one coat for a natural finish or can be build up (without clumping) to create a more dramatic effect that I like almost as much as my They’re Real by Benefit. It is a good mascara.

Bought this product in the hope it would make my light blue/grey eyes look bluer, really couldn’t see any benefit to wearing it, not sure what all the fuss is about. Will stick to my normal Max Factor mascara.

I love this mascara. It really brightens eyes. It’s black with some blue. Not only that – it doesn’t clamp lashes, lengthens and volumises and lasts for long time. Definitely worth buying.

I wasn’t sure about this at first, and really only bought it because it had money off, but I will definitely be buying it full price! I normally have to use 2 different mascaras to achieve the look I want (I have very sparse, thin eyelashes) but using only this one my lashes looked lovely, thick and long – it looked blue on the brush so I was thinking I’d need a top coat of something else but once it’s on it just looks black.

It really made my eyes “pop”, and it certainly gives my lashes a lot of volume! Also I would normally have to re-curl my lashes later in the day but with this mascara they stayed perfect for over 14+ hours.

This is a great mascara, the brush isn’t too big and the product glides over the lashes really well with no clumps, although I didn’t notice any ‘brightening’ effect. The only problem is that it made my eyes water after a few hours. That was a real shame as other than that it was a great product!

This looks quite blue rather than navy on the brush but dries to a darker colour & really does look good. I like 2 applications & this really coats the lashes well & makes them longer. It doesn’t flake and lasts all day & into the evening if required.
