Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies Mascara Review

Hi loves,
Today, I’m bringing you a review on Maybelline The Falsies Black Drama Mascara. I can honestly say, this is my favorite mascara ever. It’s truly amazing for me. I will tell you and show you why…

Maybelline Volum' Express The Falsies Mascara Review
The packaging is kind of cute. Just like all the Volume Express mascaras, same shape, same bottle, different color combo.
The Black Drama version of this mascara has black lettering, and not blue lettering like the original.

The wand is what they like to call a spoon brush.

It has smaller bristles on the top and bottom and longer bristles on the side.
First off, my eyelashes are light, thin, average length, and not very defined at all. As you can see below.

Here’s another picture to show you the length of my lashes a little better.
Here are my lashes curled, right before I apply mascara

As you can see they look a little bit better, but they could use a little bit more volume and darkness, maybe even a little  more length.
Here are my lashes with one coat of The Falsies Black Drama… I apply my mascara using the spoon part or curved part, not the sides. I just feel it applies better in my opinion and I believe that is the whole point of this brush type, but you can experiment and see what works best for you.

The mascara has added some volume, darkness, and it’s still curled. It’s normal for the curl to fall a little since you are
applying product to them.

I’m not a “one coat of mascara” type of girl, I’m more of a “two coats of mascara” type of girl, so here are my lashes after TWO coats…

And finally, I like to re-curl my lashes when they are dry, I just feel like it defines them more, and the curl stays even longer…

Now, I will say that by the third coat, it might clump, but you might still be able to get away with it. 
 
Also, this mascara seems to have some fibers in it, I thought it was just my first tube, but as I’ve continued to purchase it, I’ve noticed that they all had them, if I remember correctly, the original Falsies doesn’t have these little fiber-hair like things…

I opened the mascara, so they can’t possibly be my lashes.There’s quite a few but nothing excessive.

You can also kind of see one at tip.
My thoughts on this mascara: 
 
Pros:
It lengthens
-It volumizes
-It defines
-It darkens
-It contains little fibers to help lengthen
-It doesn’t clump
-It doesn’t flake after hours of wearing it
-On me, it didn’t smudge
-The wand is easy to work with
-It’s affordable ($5-8)
-It DOES NOT smell like some of the other Volume Express mascaras
-It’s more of a wet mascara (this could be a pro or con, depends on the person)
-Doesn’t make my lashes hard
-And it’s simply amazing!!! =>
 
Cons:
If not used correctly or applied to quickly it can clump.
-The mascara dries out after about a month or a month and a half, but it’s so affordable, so I don’t mind. (Maybe I just use it too much)
-Once it starts drying out, the application isn’t as smooth, it will clump, it will flake, and it will be a pain in the butt.
Hope you all enjoyed this review. If you liked how it turned out on me, go out and try it (By the way, I’m planning on adding a tube of this to my future giveaway so look out for that in the next few weeks). Trust me, I know this mascara probably won’t work the same for everybody. Some people will love it and others will hate it (Isn’t that how everything pretty much works in this world lol), you can be the judge. 
 
Haha, by the way, Congrats to everyone because we’re still alive. The world didn’t end today after all lol. I didn’t think it would. What are your thoughts on the world ending? Oh and what are your thoughts on this mascara too lol? 🙂
