I like to curve my eyelashes, but some mascaras make the effort absolutely pointless, as they make my eyelashes straight again for some reason. Applying mascara on the lower lashes first and on the upper lashes after helps to some extent, but not always. I guess my lashes are strong willed, haha. But yeah, because of this I have had to test quite many mascaras, to find the right kind that keeps my lashes curled, and also doesn't smudge or fall off. So far the 2000 Calorie line from Max Factor has been a pleasant find. There are three different kind of mascaras in this particular line: Curved Brush Volume & Curl for curly lashes (the one with red marks here), Dramatic Volume to add volume (with golden marks) and Waterproof Volume for waterproof lash makeup (with blue marks). All of the mascaras are supposed to create voluminous results.
How to use
When you pull the brush out of the tube, scrape the excess mascara off the brush. Having too much mascara on the brush will make your lashes look clumpy. Apply mascara to the lashes by placing the brush at the base of your lashes and wiggling it from side to side as you bring it up.
My tool of choice
The original brushes of the mascaras
I do think these mascaras make my eyelashes look thicker. The color is nice, black is rich black. They have the ability to keep my lashes curled, even if I'm not using the Curved Brush Volume & Curl mascara. They stay on their place and don't smear. I can only speak for the curly and waterproof mascara as I don't own the plain volume mascara, but I find the size and texture of the brushes very nice, they are not too big or too small, so they don't make a mess and it doesn't take long to apply mascara.
Hmm, I'm not sure if I can think of any proper ones?
