The Fabulous Falsies

When it comes to mascara, I don’t fool around. Maybelline’s Great Lash mascara (you’ll remember it as the one that’s been around forever, with the same pink bottle and lime green cap) is my tried-and-true staple. I’ve come to the point where I don’t even bother with the flashy new collagen-infused ditties. However, I have to admit that a new one caught my eye (no pun intended) and since it was on sale, I decided to go for it. It’s Maybelline’s new The Falsies mascara, and while nothing beats my old stand-by I do have to admit that I’m enjoying it. The details go a little something like this:

The Falsies Mascara delivers a false lash look; giving you a full set of voluminous, bold, fanned out lashes and the appearance of no gaps from any angle.

The Pro-Keratin and Fibre enriched formula is designed to deliver immediate results, distributing volume and visible intensity to your lashes. The patented ‘Spoon’ shaped brush helps fan lashes out.

The Falsies Mascara is designed to give the appearance of no gaps and spaces. In a wink lashes you didn’t even know you had look visibly thickened!

I didn’t really believe it would work, but I’m rather impressed. Here’s an idea of what it looks like on:

Traditionally, I use around seven or eight coats of Great Lash, but it only took two coats of The Falsies to get this look. I don’t usually like spoon-shaped (or any “unique”-shaped) brushes with my mascara – I’m of the opinion that a standard wand can become a magic wand when the right technique is applied – and while I’m still not completely in love with the brush itself, I do see how it helps give the lashes a fanned look. All-in-all, I consider myself a fan of The Falsies and I absolutely recommend giving it a try if you want the look of false lashes without hassle. It’s definitely an impressive creation from the brilliant beauty suppliers who brought us America’s #1 mascara.
