Maybelline The Falsies

 It's Tanya Burrs favourite mascara...
I don't need to say more.

After reading so many good things, this week I picked up The Falsies mascara by Maybelline and finally gave it a whirl. And what a better time to do it than when it's £2 off at Boots, making it only £5.99.

Ps. does anyone else want to curl up and cry when this happens to their nails?
Mine is in "Black Drama" which is a darker matte black to the original, and it's shown by the lace detail!
I love that aspect of it, it's very black so perfect for definition.

The brush to me looked pretty scary at first. I don't tend to use plastic brushes so I'm used to the classic mascara brush wand. This seems to have spiky brush hairs at all angles - a little crazy. 
The stem of the wand is flexible as you can see by the indent which I do feel helps.
Maybelline call it a "spooned" brush which they've actually patented, to me that just means curved. Nothing new but it does work well with the shape of natural lashes and catches every lash. I feel this also adds curl to the lashes but not lots.
To me that's okay, I look for definition in a mascara but if you're after curl I'd recommend the No7 Exquisite Curl mascara. 

I feel it lengthens lashes pretty well and does add volume.
 It claims no clumps which I'd say is almost true. What is really good about it is that it does layer up very well if you want more from it! However it's important when using any mascara to not let the mascara on the lashes dry in-between doing this.

Creepy and up close before and afters!

As you can see it clearly makes a good difference. 
For £5.99 I definitely think it's worth a buy and I would recommend!

What do you think of The Falsies?

  1. I've tried it and I wasn't a fan. I have nearly white eyelashes so I'm uber picky with mascara! I find maybelline great lash works best.

  2. I feel like I'm the only one who doesn't like this mascara :D It clumped my lashes like crazy and sticked them together. I don't know why, because I generally like the Maybelline mascaras :)

    1. I think for the price it's pretty damn good! I still absolutely LOVE my Clinique High Impact one but I think that's about £14 so this is fab!
