Last week I mentioned a few of the upcoming goodies you’ll be seeing from Maybelline this Summer and Fall one of which is the new Maybelline Falsies Volum’ Express Mascara.
Anyone try it yet? I heard a few of you saying you LOVED it.
My best friend Jai tucked one into my purse last night as I was leaving his apartment so this morning I tore into this with my teeth and proceeded to use it.
What’s it like?
Jump ahead for it!
Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express Mascara is a kera-fiber mascara that instantly builds lashes up to 8x’s the volume to give a false lash look.
This has quite a nice inky black pigmentation which will pair up great with smoky eyes. Color pay off is very dramatic and it makes my lashes look incredibly dark and mysterious! Likey!
The brush itself is slim sans bushy bristles with a spoon style curve downward. The curve of the brush makes it very easy to fit across your lash line and lift lashes upwards and out allowing the mascara to provide nice curl, decent volume, and a fair bit of length.
The formula dries down a touch to quickly which makes building lashes up a problem for me. Applying wet mascara on dried mascara equals a juicy mess. Solution? Work quickly to get as many coats as possible on because the quick drying formula will create havoc and you’ll end up with a clumpy mess. Speaking of clumpy this does apply rather clumpy and spidery so you have to brush very easily.
(Oops see? Clumpy action going on because I applied to quickly!)
I dunno if I’d call the end result a false lash look to be honest. It creates nice length but lashes aren’t nearly as full as I’d like them to be nor is the end result dramatic enough for my tastes.
- Anyone on the look out for cheaper mascara that creates longer lashes!
- Anyone who doesn’t mind taking a little time to apply (don’t rush this because you’ll end up with clumps!)
- Anyone who expects a false lash look.
- Anyone who wants fat, juicy lashes.
This is a nice mascara no doubt about it but I’m just an awful critical when it comes to drugstore mascaras. I wasn’t terribly impressed and I’m unsure whether you need to run to the nearest drugstore to purchase it. I guess I’ll be the negative Nancy here because I’m positive you’ll hear a ton of OMG ravings across makeup forums and blogs…as for this Muse it was ok but far from special.
Have you tried Maybelline The Falsies Mascara?
