Wild Mega Volume was a mascara I picked up entirely by accident, whilst on the prowl for the similarly packaged Rimmel Scandaleyes Lycra Flex mascara. As I was only going off “I can’t remember which brand but I want the mascara with the lime green packaging” philosophy I picked up the Maxfactor mascara and went on my way.
Wild Mega Volume claims to give 3x more volume thanks to its ‘amplifier’ brush and claims to be water resistant.
I’m definitely impressed with the volumising effect of this mascara but that’s as far as it goes I’m afraid. After being used to Bad Gal Lash mascara, which is a relatively dry formulation, the wetness of Wild Mega Volume was quite a shock to the system. It’s not water resistant as far as I’m aware, it’s easy enough to take off, and I still get panda eyes if I don’t take my makeup off before showering.
I find the brush clumsy as well, it’s great for doing your outer lashes, but absolutely rubbish at doing the inner lashes, I either get mascara on my nose or get clumpy lashes as I’ve had to poke at them using the end of the wand. The combination of the wet formulation and awkward brush also makes it impossible to use on lower lashes without smudging.
Overall it’s a fairly decent mascara for the price and worth a go, but if you’re quite clumsy with your application, then it might not be the best mascara for you.
I’ve still not tried the Rimmel mascara, I might when this runs out. Maxfactor Wild Mega Volume Mascara can be purchased from Boots for £4.99
