Maybelline's Volum'Express The Falsies mascara

One I've learned in my short time playing with makeup, is that you can find good quality products in drugstores.
With drugstore makeup it's kind of hit and miss. You can purchase a product and if you don't like it then you're stuck with it, can't return it after it's been used. So I'm usually wary of buying anything unless I've done my homework.

As usual, watching beauty videos on YouTube, I saw a lot of girls finishing their looks with false lashes. What a pain! Having to cut them to size to fit you, putting the glue, then trying to make them stick to your eyes and look natural? That is a bit too much for me, maybe I'll try that in the distant future.

Then I heard about the the falsies mascara. If you didn't know, that is what false eyelashes are called: falsies. Maybelline came up with a mascara that is supposed to give you the nice full look of false eyelashes.
False eyelashes are supposed to give you that dramatic look, perfect for a smokey eye. Nice long thick lashes, wow! This mascara doesn't quite go there, but it's a great product nonetheless.

I've never used Maybelline's products, and for a first try I think this mascara is wonderful.
My lashes are nice and long to begin with but when I applied this it added more length, wow!
The formulation is nice and thin so clumping is minimum, and you can totally build up the intensity if you would like to. I like to keep it at one coat though, that's my personal preference.

The mascara wears nicely, my lashes get that extra oomph that we all love and need and it does not smudge as I thought it would. It keeps intact pretty nicely which is great for long term wear throughout the day.
When you remove it though you will find some resistance but just give your makeup remover a chance to break up the product and then wipe away.

So what do I really think of this mascara?

I don't have pictures at the moment, I was so excited to post this review that I totally forgot to take pictures when I used it. I'll post some as soon as I can, I promise.

I have a picture now, one eye with and the other without the mascara on:

As you can see my lashes are a bit long and full on their own, but I feel like the side that does have mascara is a bit longer, it just give me the oomph I like.

You can purchase this mascara at most drugstores, mine was a little over $7.00
