Ok I've done something bad...I cheated on my L'oreal Voluminous mascara with this new Falsies mascara by Maybelline, oops! While I love to stick to what works for me (and Voluminous does a wonderful job) sometimes I just can't help but wonder about what else is out there, can you blame me? Launch of Falsies coincided with me finishing up my current tube of Voluminous so I went ahead and purchased this. After coming home I did what I should have done prior to my purchase and googled Falsies mascara. I read numerous mix of good, bad and so-so reviews. I kept it anyway.
I like the packaging because purple is one of my favorite colors and the metallic blue writing on it is just as cool! Maybelline definitely knows how to attract potential buyers with bright colored containers!
The curved brush has medium length bristles that we see on most of the mascaras.
Wand itself is very flexible and actually bends, Maybelline calls it the 'spoon brush' for that reason. I personally don't think that adds anything to the mascara's capabilities.
You can see my natural eyelashes in the above picture...
Hello spider legs!
Speaking on behalf of my lashes, it really fans them out and that's pretty much it. It does a so-so job separating lashes. I did witness clumping which I am not a fan of, who is anyway? I personally don't really like spider lashes. I also don't feel like it added so much length. Any mascara will add some length whether it's a good or bad mascara. This mascara does not deliver a false lash look like Maybelline claims it does, at all. I haven't seen any added intensity or volume either. Unfortunately as if all these negative thoughts weren't enough I have also felt that staying power of this mascara throughout the day is pretty lame. About 6-7 hours after application, my lashes looked naked. Where has all the mascara gone? I have no clue, it vanished into thin air! Sorry Maybelline, I like and enjoy using many of your other products but this mascara just doesn't do much for me! Needless to say I will not be repurchasing Falsies, in fact I'll run to the drugstore now and beg my Voluminous to take me back! :)
If you purchased and used this mascara, what are your thoughts on it?
