Max Factor Clump Defy Mascara Review

If you follow my blog religiously, (which is very unlikely) you'll already know my love for Max Factor's False Lash Effect mascara. I'll try out any mascara that they bring out just to see if it matches up in terms of length and voluminsing  properties.
I picked the new Clump Defy mascara from Boots for £10.99, I'm quite surprised that it wasn't on offer/sale, they normally have great introductory offers, but I bit the bullet and purchased it anyway.

As you can see the wand is slightly curved and has hundreds of tiny little 'spikes' all over. The False Lash Effect one has the same bristles but no gimmicky curve. To be honest I don't feel curved brushes do much different from the normal straight ones.

I've tried this out over a few days just to see if it flaked, smudged or was difficult to remove, and Clump Defy does not disappoint in these ways. I found it stays on all day and is so easy to remove at night, I usually use face wipes.

Sadly this review is not all positive. I found that after one coat, yes my lashes weren't clumped together but they had next to no product on them. This meant no volume or length to the lashes, just a coloured coating to my short stumpy lashes. I spend ages building up layers to even achieve the tiniest bit of length.

I think this mascara would be perfect for someone who likes the minimal look when it comes to make-up or when you are running out of the house to the local shops and you don't want your eyes to look 'dead'.

Overall I give Max Factor's Clump Defy a 6 out of 10!

Have you tried this mascara yet, what are your thoughts?

  1. I really love that brush, but it always sucks when it takes so much effort to make the product work.


  2. This looks really good. It is weird, I am a beauty blogger but never tried MaxFactor? So bizarre! I might have to give this a whirl as it looks pretty awesome!
