Review: Maybelline Volum' Express The Falsies

I kept seeing Maybelline's Falsies Mascara being advertised and I finally got to try it out today. Let me just say I now have a new favourite mascara! Read more for the price, where to buy and my review including a before and after picture of my lashes!

Price: $5.76 CAD
Where to buy: Walmart, Shoppers Drug Mart, local drugstore

I swear by Maybelline's Great Lash and I'm sure lots of other girls (and guys) do too but it's time for a change right? Having seen the ads for this mascara everywhere, I was skeptical because I've tried tons of mascaras and none of them really made my lashes thicker. Being Asian, I was born with short and thin lashes and while false lashes are the answer to that, falsies can be quite uncomfortable sometimes. I'm so glad I've found my solution to this! Maybelline's Falsies Mascara doesn't give you an actual falsies look but it thickens, lengthens and volumizes your lashes.

I do have to say though, the ads in magazines show a model actually wearing real (and very photoshopped) false lashes and I'm like

- put at least 2-3 coats on, you'll notice a huge difference
- swipe upwards once, and then wriggle the brush upwards again
- don't forget to coat your bottom lashes as well even if you think you have none. It thickens and makes your bottom lashes more visible

In the before picture, I have absolutely nothing on and in the after the picture, the only thing I have on is the mascara. It made a huge difference!

Eyes closed so you can see that those are all my natural lashes. Amazing eh?

I strongly recommend this mascara. I've tried so many in the past and none has worked as well as this one and for only $5, this is a super affordable but effective makeup product. Let me know what you think!

  1. Again, another one I have wanted to try but I swear by Cover Girl Lash Blast i think...yeah..that sounds about right haha.

    I am a Cover Girl lover always..buuut now I think I want to try this one too haha

    again, thanks for the review!

  2. @Gwen I'm definitely going to have to try out some Covergirl products in the near future. You're welcome!

  3. oh, i looove cover girl... too bad they they don't sell it here.

    i'm using colossal volum' express from maybelline right now. i think i like it more than falsies (based on this review). and i got it on sale *happy dance*

  4. @anna Awesome! Sales make every girl happy. I've tried the Colossal mascara and it didn't give me the kind of thick lashes like this one did. I guess it's different for everyone.

  5. CoverGirl Lash Exact is my favorite. I tried Lash Blast due to all the hype it got, but I found that Lash Exact made my lashes look much longer.

  6. @L Hey girl! I'm definitely going to try out some Covergirl products soon.

  7. @Carina the Blogarina I haven't personally tried Dior Show although I have heard good things about it. I'm aiming to try affordable drugstore products that everyone can buy.
