Maybelling The Falsies Volum' Express

Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express
Waterproof, Very Black
$7.49 us .25 fl. Oz / 7.5 ml
Made in the USA
This mascara comes in a vibrant violet tube container with light blue metallic writing. Makes me think of an awesome eyeshadow color combo coming! The tube is a little on the lighter side but doesn’t feel cheap. The tube can be stored standing up or lying down. There is nothing really special about the packaging it does what it is meant to do… Dispense mascara, ha ha ha… The applicator wand is kind of unique. The bristles are in a half dome shape with 1/3 of the wand flat. The wand curves the length of the bristles to help add curl to your lashes. The wand it self has a flex point joint about an inch from the bristles allowing it to flex while applying the product. I usually don’t like the wand to bend so I can wiggle in between the eyelashes to get a good coat over every lash. I think the flex point joint is put there so that the proper pressure is applied to the lashes as to deposit the right amount of product. The opening in the tube I find is a little wider then I would like. The wand slips out with a considerable amount of product on it, which can make the application a little thicker then some might want.
Falsies formula goes on kind of thick, and can clump if you are not careful when applying the coats. The formula isn’t too think so that it feels like you have drapes hanging from your lashes. I have found that it is still a little sticky after it dries, so you may not be able to smudgeit while crying but the lashes can clump together. They do not dry too stiff but will stay curled all day! If you are used to wearing mascara this will not feel heavy. For people who do not wear mascara normally may feel it is a bit heavy on the lashes. (lighter then real false lashes!) Falsies have great color pigmentation, goes on smoothly, and with practice, evenly!
With a little practice and an eyelash separator Falsies is a great substitute for false lashes for the every day-girl who would like longer thicker lashes. Mabybelline I feel has made a great product that does what it claims for an affordable price. Colors include Blackest Black, Very Black, and Brownish Black.
My overall rating for Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express is
