Maybelline the Falsies Waterproof Mascara // Review


Maybelline are, in my opinion, probably most well known for their mascaras and rightly so. From what I can see on the Maybelline website they have 13 mascaras available for you to try and then you can get 6 of those mascaras in a waterproof version. I honestly had no idea, until I looked, how many mascaras Maybelline actually did and I am blown away by how many different mascaras they make! I'm sure most of you have tried at least one Maybelline mascara, if not I would really recommend trying one out! Picking one from 13 is going to be a tough task though so hopefully today's review can help you decide! I've reviewed Maybelline's Mega Plush Mascara as well if you missed that a couple of months ago!

Today though I'm reviewing the Falsies Waterproof Mascara. From what I can see there are 4 versions of the Falsies Mascara available: Falsies Flared, Falsies Waterproof, Falsies Black Drama and the original Falsies. They all claim to do different things and the Waterproof version is pretty self explanatory I think! 



The brush/wand on this mascara is flat on one side and then if you turn it around you can see it has a slight curve and the brush is skinnier. I really like it when mascara wands/brushes have a small curve as it fits the shape of your eye better meaning you can catch the little lashes in the inner and outer corners of your eyes.

This mascara claims to have a Pro-Keratin formula but the only thing I really noticed about the formula is that the mascara is very wet. A good thing in the long run I would think as it won't dry out quickly but at the moment it is slightly annoying. However, if you are after lots of volume I really would recommend this mascara because the wet formula combined with the wand/brush gives your lashes a lot of volume and that false lash effect. 



The pictures are from the first time I used this mascara, I used a very light hand as I found the formula to be quite wet so I guess this is only a snippet of what this mascara can achieve. I find it gives my lashes a lot of length and volume. It does clump a little but a quick comb through with a lash comb sorts that problem out. I only used one coat here but using 2 coats does bump up the volume a lot. I think with a light hand you can achieve a really nice day time look but also this mascara is perfect for the night time if you apply a bit more product.

On the waterproof side of things this mascara gets a big thumbs up from me. I've always had problems with smudging and flaking mascara and this is only the second mascara I've found to actually be waterproof. I didn't go swimming with this on or anything but even on some of the hottest days in summer my mascara stayed firmly on my lashes!

 I've completely fallen for the Falsies hype and really would recommend this mascara!

You can buy the Maybelline the Falsies Waterproof Mascara for £7.99 from Boots, Superdrug and some Supermarkets.

  2. I have never tried a Maybelline mascara and I'm not sure why - perhaps the amount of choice puts me off? I don't know, but this one looks good! My favourite is a discontinued Rimmel mascara that was released about five years ago called Lash Maxxx - it was in a pink and black tube and the wand was a comb which I wasn't sure about at first but it gave my eyelashes the best length and didn't clump, oh my days it was amazing I wish they hadn't discontinued it! xo
