Product Review: The Falsies Volum Express mascara

I recently bought Maybelline New York's The Falsies Volum Express waterproof mascara in Black Drama. I needed a new waterproof mascara, and I usually go for something volumizing, which I prefer over lengthening mascaras. Also, I had previously heard a lot of good things about The Falsies, and decided I would try it out.

At first glance at the brush, I have to admit that I was scared. The texture and shape of the bristles looked to me like they would cause a big, clumpy mess of my eyelashes. But when I actually applied it, I was pleasantly surprised! It did a really good job of separating my lashes and it wasn't clumpy at all.

 The above pictures show one coat, which as you can see, is not overwhelmingly voluminous. Which is really nice if you're not going for something super dramatic, like a daytime look. But the great thing is that it's definitely buildable. The more coats you apply, the bigger and more dramatic your eyelashes will look.

All in all, I am super impressed with this mascara. I love how you can use it in the daytime and add a little bit more for a more dramatic night-time look. I also love the way it applies - super easy application! The formula is also great - slightly on the wet side but not overly. It doesn't get all over my lower lid if I accidentally blink too soon after applying it, which is a huge pet peeve I have with wet mascaras. If you haven't tried this mascara yet, I think you should! It's really inexpensive too. I got mine on sale for $6 but the normal price is only around $8 - $10, depending on where you buy it.
