Maybelline New York: the Falsies Flared Volum' Express Review

I have a crazy stash of Maybelline Mascaras in my collection due to coupons and BOGO sales, so over the next while there will be the occasional review.

First up is The Falsies.



I picked this up at my local london drugs for about $9. First off I think that drugstore make up is getting a little cost-crazy here in Canada. Maybe I'm just getting old...
Back in my day, drugstore makeup was CHEAP

*cough* anyway back to the mascara.

Maybelline says:
300% MORE VISIBLE LASHES. Up, out, and over the top - instantly! 

They also show this photo:
The model IS wearing false lashes... all mascara ads are lies

 What I like:
  • This mascara is very black
  • It gives a fuller lash look
  • There is very little scent to it
  • It has a curved wand

 What I don't like:
  • It made my eyes itchy
  • It flaked after about 10 hours, when I got home from work I was finding flakes on my cheeks
  • It clumped quickly (after a few uses I found myself using my lash comb regularly)

Keeping in mind my lashes are pretty thin and very blonde. I wore this mascara in a recent FOTD


Will I buy this again? Probably not. I would pick it up if it was on sale for a really good price, simply for the deal of it. I would never use it in my kit on other people.
