Maybelline The Falsies Volum' Express mascara

Hey guys. Seriously it is so hard to find any spare time to blog nowadays! No worries though, this too shall pass once I've settled all my papers and other relevant stuff. It finally came to my realization that I am really flying off soon! I know it's not somewhere super exotic like Thailand or Korea but I still think it will be just as fun (I hope)! Meanwhile, I've also started reading again after a couple months of not touching any books. I'm currently reading The Devil in Winter by Lisa Kleypas for the second time and it is seriously one of the most entertaining book I've read apart from Sophie Kinsella's. I don't know why 50 Shades of Grey is so popular when this book literally blew it right out the window!

Enough about me. I finally bought the Maybelline Falsies mascara! This has been out in stores for months now and I've only recently got it because before this it used to cost more than B$25. Personally I wouldn't spend more than B$21 on any mascaras so I held back from purchasing it. Then I saw it on sale for B$16.20 the other day at Soon Lee! It was part of their Chinese New Year offer so kudos to you CNY. 

Maybelline The Falsies Volum' Express mascara

The Falsies mascara is one of the many hyped-up products in the beauty blogger community and I can safely say most beauty gurus on youtube own this, if not all. I really like the purple on the tube, it gives the product a whole more youthful look compared to say, the Maybelline Stiletto mascara.

The wand, like most mascara wands, is very flexible and the bristles are slightly curved downwards. It's fairly big too but it applies really easily. The instructions on the tube said to 'use fanned-out brush with the inner curve against the lashes'. I'm not a big fan of the smell but since I'm putting it on my lashes my nose hardly picked up any scent so that's that. lol

Right: After one coat Maybelline Falsies mascara

I have the typical asian lashes, short and barely-there and after a coat of the Falsies I have to say I'm pretty satisfied with the result! It's not clumpy at all and if you notice you'd see that the bristles of the wand helped a lot in separating my lashes and lengthening them. 

After two coats

Two coats of the mascara further lengthen my lashes and still, there are no clumps of mascara! I'm really impressed with the Falsies. It's no wonder it became many beauty gurus' favorite. Of course, I wouldn't say it gave me the appearance of using false lashes because no mascara in this world will be able to do that with my sparse eyelashes but this, this is good enough! In terms of volume it does give a bit of volume but not as much as the length it gives to your natural lashes.

The Falsies Volum' Express is a waterproof mascara (at least the ones sold here in Brunei) so you won't have to worry about it smudging or running down your face when it rains. It's fairly difficult to remove too but it's nothing that a makeup remover couldn't handle. Overall I really like this mascara and I recommend you all to go out and get this asap! lol I'll definitely repurchase this once I ran out of it.


  1. 50 shades of grey is too sexual lol..
