Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara will be trickling into drugstores this June but I was lucky enough to try it out early. Don’t worry, it isn’t like June isn’t right around the corner. Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara had me hopeful because I didn’t really love the original Falsies formula and was hoping for more everything with Big Eyes.
Did it turn out into everything I hoped?
Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara ($9.49) is a dual ended mascara which not only addresses top lashes but bottom ones as well. I have to admit I think that’s all kinds of cool. Every mascara I own should be dual ended and have two formulas that address top and bottom lashes. I can’t tell you how many times I wish for a lighter formula and a smaller applicator to do my bottom lashes with. Let’s face it some of the bigger wands that these mascara have and the thicker formula just aren’t meant for those shorter, delicate lashes that surround the bottom of your eyes.
The idea of having a mascara that addresses both top and bottom lashes is actually really a great idea.
This isn’t a waterproof formula and it will be available in three shades in June. However, in July it will relaunch in a waterproof version in two shades.
I personally didn’t have issues with smudging or flaking on my drier eyes and liked how easily it washed away when it was time to remove. So if you have drier eyes you shouldn’t have any problems. I can’t speak for those with a more oily area as I couldn’t test it on such an area.
This has a twisted multidimensional brush which helps to push lashes up and out. I find I have to do a slow sweep with this as it does go a little clumpy for me if I am not careful. It doesn’t necessarily add curl or intense length but it does however, create excellent volume. My before and after photos don’t do it justice but I really like the way it fans lashes out yet fills them to a point that my lash line appears fuller. I do regret it doesn’t give me a ton of length but I am very happy with the volume it provides.
The bottom lash applicator is quite a good deal smaller than the top. The formula of the mascara also feels lighter so it won’t weight those smaller lashes down. I wouldn’t call the results dramatic but it does do a fairly good job adding some length to my shorter bottom lash line.
Overall, I do believe Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara sounds more promising than it really is. I mean throw around words like falsies in a mascara product and I expect really outstanding results. Although it gives my lashes a fuller appearance I think it lacked the length I craved…I was hoping for that false lash look but it didn’t quite hit the target. If you loved the original formula I have a funny feeling you’ll adore the Big Eyes one.
It launches this June in drugstores and follows with a waterproof version in July.
Will you indulge?
