I am taking part in THE GREAT MASCARA HUNT that was started over on Blogdorf Goodman (click on above title). My first review is for Lash Perfection Mascara, part of the revamped Max Factor line. It does not claim to be volumizing or thickening, just rather a straightforward claim of "perfection", and I have to say it comes pretty close. Part of its genius comes from the brush, which uses nubby plastic bristles instead of the brush-like bristles most mascaras have. It somehow keeps the mascara from clumping and seperates the lashes very nicely. I also thought it volumized very well, and kept my eyelashes volumized all day. I did not use a primer with this, but I think you will find you do not need it. It did not flake, but late in the evening, hours after I applied, I rubbed my eye, and quite a few flakes came off. Apparently this mascara will last for about 12 hours. Rating: 8/10.
