Repurchased Products: Maybelline the Falsies


If there is one product my face feels naked without, its mascara! Even on no-make-up, make-up days when you don't want too many products on your face I will always have mascara, my eyes just don't seem as open without it. It really does a lot to help you look more awake -even if your not, and really brightens up your face, especially your eyes.

Maybelline the Falsies has been a favourite of mine since it was released maybe 2/3 years ago now, since first trying it out I have continued to buy tube after tube and still love it as much now as it did at the beginning. I stick to quite natural make-up most of the time but when it comes to my eyelashes I want big bold and always black, and that is what you get with the Falsies.


The wand itself is a brush instead of a plastic mascara applicator, I tend to favour these types of brushes over the hard plastic ones as I feel they can most of the time give you a better finish, less clumpy. I have quite large eyes so for me, the wand is a good size but my mum has smaller more narrow eyes and she cannot stand it. She can't apply it without getting it on the skin all around her eyes. It is a curved brush, a "spoon brush" as it says on the packaging, this really helps fan out your lashes from corner to corner and helps add curls at the same time. The consistency is a little more watery that I would like on first use, I always find the runnier mascaras harder to apply neatly, but this does thicken up a little after the first couple of uses.

I try to pick up waterproof versions of any mascara I buy for a couple of reasons 1. I live in Scotland and even if it is sunny, it can rain! 2. I find that they last longer on me throughout the day and hold a better curl. 3. Also when a water proof mascara is coming to the end of it's life, I find that they flake less. Saying that, the ones I have here are not waterproof, I have still never been able to find the "Black Drama" version in a water proof formula...I'm starting to wonder whether one actually exists. Even without being waterproof this mascara does last well and I don't get any smudging or chipping during the course of the day.

The finish it gives you is big black almost false looking lashes, I have relatively long lashes, nothing I can complain about but this does add considerable length to them due to the tiny fibres in the formula. I absolutely love this mascara and will probably continue to buy it for a long time. You can pick this up at any drugstore/highstreet shop, even quite a few supermarkets. Have you tried the Falsies? What are your favourite mascaras?
