You may have noticed in my recent make up posts that my current favourite mascara is Benefit’s Bad Gal Lash (though I do cringe at the name everytime I have to write/type it!) And it is a fabulous mascara, it gives volume, length and a generally gorgeous lash when you’ve finished applying it! However, the downside is the price. At £18 a pop it does not come cheap!
So I thought I’d try out a cheaper high street mascara. Having heard many bloggers and vloggers rave about the Maybelline Falsies range I thought I’d give it a go too. Here is my verdict: IT’S AWESOME
I totally understand the hype.
I have very fair eyelashes and I feel awful without mascara as my eyes look sunk into my head (well I think they do anyway, it is perhaps my biggest failing.) So everyday I use black mascara to define my eyes. And the Falsies is just brilliant. Great colour pay off (I have the colour Black Drama) I usually just use one coat of mascara and I think that is the nicest look (above centre picture). Also, when I applied the second coat it became a little clumpy towards the end – so one coat looks better (on me anyway).
The rubber wand is scoop shaped so it really fits around your eyelashes well, defining them perfectly, giving great length. The formula is brilliant too – it doesn’t imprint at all (unlike the new Volume de Chanel mascara which ended up all over my face!) It last all day too – I wore it for a good 13/14 hours yesterday and it looks as if I’d just put it on when I came to take it off.
And for £7.99 I think the Falsies mascara is a bargain – such a good quality product for a snip of the price of high end mascaras. I can’t recommend this enough!
What is your favourite mascara? Have you tried the Falsies – what do you think to it?
