Maybelline The Falsies Mascara Review

Maybelline The Falsies Mascara

I've been using this mascara by Maybelline for quite a while now, and I must say it's my favourite mascara so far. I don't really see the point in shelling out so much money on high end mascaras, when its something you have to replace regularly (to avoid bacteria build up and consequent eye irritations/infections - maybe?) and with results that drugstore mascaras can also deliver. Among the drugstore brands, Maybelline and L'oreal mascaras have impressed me so far. My last favourite lash look consisted of a combination of L'oreal Double Extension with Serum Inside mascara primer (only) with Maybelline Collosal Volume mascara on top. That really gave me length and volume, without the clumps. I love big lashes, but I can't be bothered to use actual false ones.

When Maybelline The Falsies Mascara was released, I wanted to try it. I was skeptical about the false lash effect claim, but at the same time I was curious. It was on offer so I took it to the till and bought it.

Maybelline The Falsies Mascara has a pretty-flat but curved wand, which is a lot thinner than Maybelline Volume Express as you can see on the photo. I always thought bigger bristles delivered the best biggest and thickest lashes, but I guess I was mistaken.

To apply, I use the convex or bulging out bit of the curve on my lashes. I guess its curved shape might also help curl your actual lashes? Although I haven't tried this yet since I always use my Shu Uemura eyelash curler - the best one I've ever tried, works wonders for my Asian lashes :)

When I finally put it on, I was so impressed. It did both steps of my previous favourite lash combo in one sweep! It gave me volume and some length, without clumping. It dries pretty quick after you apply, which is convenient, unlike some mascaras that can take forever! It holds a curl well throughout the day, and I haven't noticed any smudging or flaking at all.

Because of the long bristles of Maybelline Volume Express, I had a tendency to apply a bit of mascara on my actual lid while applying to the bases of my lashes. But because of the way The Falsies is shaped, I encounter that problem less often.

I love this mascara. As I mentioned earlier, its my favourite one to date. If you love thick lashes, I highly recommend you check this out! :)

What do you think? ♥

What's your favourite mascara?

  1. Your lashes are luscious already, I'm jealous :)
    The mascara really works well on you. I don't know if they will ever launch The Falsies here, but if they do, I'd so try it!

  3. Princesa, you are simply awesome for doing this post! I haven't seen this in my drugstores or Target, I'll keep an eye out for this one.

    After a while Colossal started flaking and smudging under my eye...how does it get from the top of my eye to under my eye is a mystery to me!

  8. Great review! I loved the Colossal too, and this one looks great! Can't wait to get my hands on it. Oh and I agree, there's no need to spend lots of money on mascaras! I'm loving Rimmel London's Sexy Curves ATM, I didn't at first but now I mastered the wand and my lashes are like OMG!
    Anyway, have a nice day! XO
