Review: Maybelline Volum' Express The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara

Maybelline's newest mascara is a part of The Falsies line, and it is called The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara. Before I say anymore I just want to let you know that I have been using this for 5 days, and I already know that this is now my new favorite mascara! The mascara I have here is in the shade blackest black, and the mascara is double sided. It has one normal wand for your top eyelashes, and it has a tiny wand for your bottom eyelashes.



The original Maybelline The Falsies mascara was already my favorite mascara. For me it was everything I wanted in a mascara. But now this one has bottom lash wand?!?! I am not really a fan of having a separate mascara with a tiny wand for my lower eyelashes, so this is everything I desire in a mascara, plus more!


The larger wand for the upper lashes is somewhat large and flat, but it has a small spiral. This is different from The original Falsies and the Falsies Flared, because it does not have the spoon shaped wand.


The smaller wand for the lower lashes is very tiny, and it has a very slight cone shape. I think it is the perfect size for grabbing my lower eyelashes without looking clumpy.

Now here's a picture of my eye without any mascara on:


I'm not sure why my pupils look square... but anyways here is a picture of my eye with 2 coats of the mascara on:



As you can see this mascara does a lot for my eyelashes. It gives me a good amount of length and volume! Some may say that this gives me a kind of spidery lash effect, but the way my eyelashes look in these pictures is how how really desire them to look! To me it lifts my lashes and makes it look like I have more eyelashes than I actually do. Also after two coats it starts to clump a little bit, so I stop after 2 coats.

I think this is a great mascara overall. The packaging is nice and functional. It is convenient to have both an upper and lower lash wand all in one mascara. The price is great (I got this for around $7). And this isn't water proof (though it also comes in waterproof), but it last great on me all day without smudging or anything. It is also easy for me to remove. I really can't think of anything bad to say about it excepts that it can get clumpy if you aren't careful.

This is my new favorite mascara, but if you prefer more volume, more separation, or a more natural mascara you may not like this. Plus everyone has different experiences with different mascara, so it's hard to say. I think if you liked the original Falsies or Falsies Flared you probably would really enjoy this. I recommend trying this out, especially if you are already a fan of the Falsies line.

Would you try out this mascara? Have you tried any of the Falsies mascaras?

  2. I'm personally still on the fence of if I really want to try this mascara or not. I might, I might not. I do like what they do for your lashes! They look good. I've been running into smudging problems with maybelline mascaras so I'm hesitant

    1. Thank you! And I haven't had smudging issues with this one, so it may be fine. They also have a waterproof version! Maybe that would work out better for you

  4. I actually had this in my hand the other day from Walgreens, but put it back because the price they had for it was $10.99 :O That's just my local Walgreens though, no all of them. I REALLY want to give this one a go though.

  5. Thanks for the review. I like Maybelline mascaras, I have found a few good ones from that line. I have tried the falsies but I have not tried this one yet.
    My favorite is actually the lash lengthening mascara by Black Radiance, that one does wonders for my lashes.

    1. I haven't tried anything from Black Radiance yet! I always see it, but I've never actually bought anything. I may have to try out that mascara. I have also heard that their oil control primer is awesome!

  9. Great review! I'm a big fan of The Falsies Flared, that's the first on only Falsies mascara I've tried. However I'm running low on that one and it's almost time to buy a new mascara, this one may be it! :)
