Hey there! :) Today I am going to write a review on the Falsies `Volum` Express` mascara by Maybelline. I always see people using or hear them talking about Maybelline mascaras and I wanted to see what the hype is about. I got mine in the shade/color Black Drama a little over a month ago and so far I`ve been really liking it! If you`d like to see all of my opinions on it and a few pictures on how it works, then please keep on reading :)
So let`s see... I paid somewhere around £8-9 for this.. which is more than what I usually pay for my mascaras but I really wanted to try out a Maybelline one. And after all, I make that money in less than two hours of hard boring work so I might as well treat myself with a little makeup every now and then - I earned it!:)
I am not sure if they promise anything that you should be getting from this mascara (apart from volume), they only wrote on the back that it has a `concentrated black fibre formula`. Now I don`t know much about fibre mascaras, but in my opinion this is a pretty normal formula (mostly on the wet side), without any annoying fibres that will irritate my eyes throughout the day.
The wand is a pretty curved and I find it perfect for getting these stubborn inner corner lashes or the ones on the bottom lash line - coats each one of them quickly and perfectly.
I`ll do this post`s layout like the previous mascara reviews I`ve done... so
Let`s see what I would like to know when reading about a mascara:
Does it give volume? I usually say that my lashes are quite voluminous by themselves so most of the times I am not impressed with volumising formulas. However I do feel like this one gives me quite a bit more volume than what I already have :).
Is it lengthening? Yes, I believe it does a pretty awesome job at lengthening, especially my bottom lashes. It doesn`t lengthen as much as other mascaras I`ve tried that make my lashes almost touch my browbone, but it`s good enough. In its defense, after all it promises volume not length :D.
I know that in the picture you can`t really see how much it lengthens or how much volume it gives, because of my bold winged liner, but I hope you can get an idea, especially from the pics where I was looking to the side. :)
Does it separate lashes or clump them? It`s separating all the way. I don`t get any clumping unless I use like 3 massive coats - but nothing extreme or that I`d mind... I usually stick to 2 coats of mascara though, and it separates like a dream.
Does it curl/hold the curl? Curl, a little bit maybe yeah. My eyelashes are slightly curled naturally but I do feel like it helps a little bit. If I decide to curl my lashes, they do hold throughout the day - however that is a step I usually avoid because I feel like using an eyelash curler takes away some of the length - it`s just my personal belief and preference.
Waterproof/Long lasting? I am pretty sure they had a waterproof formula for this mascara when I got it. However this stays on my lashes without smudging even when it`s pouring rain so that`s a good thing. It doesn`t transfer on my lid and it doesn`t give me raccoon eyes (aka doesn`t run under my eyes, despite the fact that my eyes get quite watery sometimes). And it lasts for the stupid amount of hours I need it for too - I usually need my makeup for about 15 hours/day and when I get back home it looks just as good as when I left. =)
Would I recommend this? Yes. I think it`s totally worth a try - I have yet to find any negative aspect about it, and I am happy I decided to pay a little bit more than what I usually go for.. couldn`t be more thrilled with the results :D
Would I repurchase? I would say yes... but! As I said in the beginning of this post, I always see people using or hear them talking about Maybelline mascaras, so next time I might try another one and see how I like it. However I`ll always know that this one hasn`t failed me and know where to find it :).
Thank you for stopping by! I hope this review helped you out a little bit!
