Review; Maybelline The Falsies Volum' Express Mascara

Hello everyone! 

Another mascara review today! This was another item I had for my birthday in the makeup goodie bag from my parents.  

What Maybelline says; " False lash glam, instantly! • Patented Spoon Brush fans out lashes from corner-to-corner, while our Pro-Keratin formula instantly builds volume without clumping • Unique flexible wand helps to lift and separate lashes to provide the look of 300% more visible, fuller lashes, no gaps from any angle."

As I have said in previous posts, my lashes are nothing special. They are pretty normal, but with this mascara they do kinda look false! They are definitely fuller and look more visible, and I could see how Maybelline claims it makes lashes look false. 

I love the shape of the brush and it really seems easy to sweep your lashes and build up some length and volume, right to the corners. It can sometimes clump if you apply too much, so I tend to just brush on one coat if I am wearing it alone. I find it lasts well,  and only smudge when the formula is still wet. 

The only downside to this is the very liquid formula which makes getting the mascara all over your face very easy. It also makes your lashes extremely wet when you first put it on, which I don't really like. 

As I said the mascara can clump, very easily in fact, so I recommend putting 2/3 coats max on, as I found that is the cut off point for the 'clumpyness' factor!

With one coat my lashes looks thicker and darker, and it also adds length as well.

 Overall, I really like this mascara and I believe most people would too!
