I don’t really look to drugstore / high street brands for mascara, maybe because I know they don’t tend to work for my lashes.
But it’s nice to try them out sometimes! Here I have Maybelline The Falsies Mascara:
The Falsies Mascara delivers a false lash look; giving you a full set of voluminous, bold, fanned out lashes and the appearance of no gaps from any angle.
The Pro-Keratin and Fibre enriched formula is designed to deliver immediate results, distributing volume and visible intensity to your lashes. The patented ‘Spoon’ shaped brush helps fan lashes out.
I do wish companies would stop using ridiculous lash inserts for their adverts though. It’s kind of embarassing…anyway the Falsies! Here is the brush:It’s curved and quite a big brush – from the side:
From the front it’s extremely wide – I think this would work well with long lashes but it’s tricky for people with shorter lashes like me, because it tends to get on the eyelid.
Two light coats. I think this adds length but not so much volume:
I don’t think it does a terrible job with curl but it doesn’t enhance it. Also, I think it’s a bit bitty, on me anyway.
See how it’s all weird at the ends? I get this a lot with lengthening mascaras, usually the ones that have fibers, but I’m not even sure if this one has that?! Hmmm.
This isn’t a bad product but it’s not great either – I wouldn’t recommended it in particular for lashes like mine, I think their Volume Express regular mascara is better than this.
