Mascara is the kind of beauty product I should definitely have in my make-up bag. I think the same goes for any modern girl! Recently, I found myself with all my mascaras dried, and, as I was waiting for my favorite one by Tony Moly to arrive, I decided to buy the legendary Max Factor 2000 Calorie Volume & Curl in the color 01 Black
There was also a brown color, but I wanted the black one.
I opted for 2000 Calorie with a curled brush. I like such brushes, as I find them very convenient to work with. What’s more, the brush seemed to be of the right size: not too big or small.
It’s not made of silicone, but separates my lashes well, giving them the curl because of its curled and shaped brush.
The consistency of the mascara is great, just from the very moment I opened it. It is neither dry nor thick. The color is very intense and looks bright on my eyelashes:)

I need a lot from the mascara: separation, volume, lengthening, intense color, long lasting effect...

I like the result, my eyelashes are quite long, curled and volumized. I don't need to comb my eyelashes after the application, as the brush does its job quite well. I also like the intense black color. And this is only one layer applied!
I also quite like the fact that this mascara is easy to remove with regular micellar water, or any other make-up remover. This mascara didn’t irritate when it occasionally got in my eyes, so I presume it’s really suitable for sensitive eyes.
The mascara doesn’t smudge when it’s drizzling or when my eyes are watery (sometimes they are, when it’s windy). It doesn’t crumble or fall out. My lashes look the same over 12 hours! Is it better than my favorite mascara? No, but this one is still great.
I assess it with 5 stars and really recommend it.
Thanks for reading my review!
