#7 MAX FACTOR Masterpiece Max Mascara
Boasting a truly unusual brush design, this mascara wand utilises micro-channels in the brush fibres to disperse more product to coat each lash. The result? High-drama lashes that look voluminous and defined. The real kicker, though, is the smudge-proof and touch-proof formula that makes all day wear a no-brainer.
