Max Factor: Waterproof Masterpiece Mascara Review

Hello my lovlies! 
Today I have a review of the Masterpiece Mascara in Waterproof for you.
I bought this mascara at the airport (you can find my haul post here) so I've had it just under a month, and have used it practically everyday, so I have a pretty good understanding of it! 

First off, apologies for the eyebrows! After my holiday they're have a bit of a growth spurt so I'm trying to grow them a little bit.

It's got quite a think but loose consistency. You have to be pretty gentle with you lashes, as it's pretty easy to get it on your lid, unfortunately! 
It has good staying power and doesn't flake off during the day. I like wearing waterproof because of my hayfever, and this doesn't budge. It gives my lashes a bit of length and quite a bit of volume. It can be quite clumpy though after the first coat, I tend to apply a different mascara which helps to comb off the excess.
Time for photos! 

Here are my lashes without mascara on, they're just been curled and I tightlined my waterline a little bit.

Here is one coat of mascara, with a very light coat on my bottom lashes too. As you can see, there's a nice bit of length volume. Very natural looking.

Here is a picture with a second coat added to the top lashes. As you can see it's added more length but looks pretty clumpy/stuck together. Now, some people like their eyelashes looking like this, which is perfectly fine! I just like mine to be all seperated, however I'd still wear them like this, if I didn't have time to sort it out :P 
Using a third coat is a bit of a mess and I wouldn't suggest it. They get pretty awful where the formula is pretty wet.

Overall, this is a good mascara, providing you looking for a natural amount of length and volume, and aren't looking to layer it up too much. Saying that, it might be a bit better when the product starts drying a bit. I'll update this post in a month or so.
I don't know if I would repurchase this again, as I find myself using another mascara with it, I paid £9.99 for this mascara which is a lot for me! 
*UPDATE* I have now ran out of this mascara, and it did improve after a couple of months when the formula became less wet. It was a pretty darn good mascara! I would repurchase it again, however, I would repurchase it a couple of months before I needed it, to help it solidify a bit. :)
You can find it here on the Boots website or here on the Superdrug website.

Until next time!
