Review: Maybelline The Falsies Mascara
Maybelline recently came out with this new mascara called "The Falsies". It comes in a very cute purple tube, looks very much like the Colossal. I am a big fan of the Volum' Express mascaras from Maybelline, I have several, if not all of them and they are my favourite drugstore mascara. I like the semi big brush, it covers my lashes well,volumizes and separates well.
The Falsies promises to give up to 3x more visible lashes corner to corner. Well if your lashes are sparse and thin, you won't really see this, no matter how much mascara you put on. Maybelline claims to give no gaps from any angle if you use this mascara. Their new brush, "the exclusive spoon brush finds every lash... while Pro Keratin Fiber formula fills in every gap, false lash lab, instantly". Sounds pretty good. I am a fan of the spoon brush (it's a curve, but not too dramatic), I like curved brushes on mascaras, I think they work a lot better than the traditional straight across ones. Your lashes, if you curl them, are shaped like that, like a moon, 180 degree shape, so having a brush that mimics that is good. I personally love the brush on the Colossal, and the Falsies one is thinner and smaller (pictured above).
Does this give you the false lash look? Not really, it's not dramatic enough. It's a good mascara though, I would put it up there in my top 5. So keep putting on those false ladies ladies! I think if you have pretty thick and long lashes to begin with, this mascara would be perfect for you. But don't expect miracles if you don't, I am not sure how maybelline can claim to fill in lashes that aren't there... cause only false lashes can do that.
