Product Review: Maybelline Falsies Volum' Express Waterproof Mascara

My sample of Clinique mascara finally ran out. It lasted for ever seeing as how it was only a sample!

So went out to look for a new mascara. I've liked the idea of flash lash effect mascara, so I thought I'd give Maybelline's Falsies mascara a whirl! I choose the waterproof one as it was really hot out today (that was a shock in itself), and I don't want my mascara to melt off in the heat!

As you can see, it does create good lash volume, and lengths them too - especially on the bottom lashes. 

Pros:
-The colour is a rich black shade, you don't need two coats for it too be a pure black.
-It lengths the bottom lashes really well.
-The hot pink packaging is lovely.

Cons:
-The brush is quite big, so when applying to your bottom lashes the product tends to smudge underneath them. 
-It does clump the lashes together slightly.

Overall, it's a good product, not a great product. It does the job. I still miss my Clinique mascara though! If you've got the cash I would definitely invest in one. 

The brush is small enough to get your bottom lashes beautifully defined, but not smudge underneath. And it individualises lashes so you don't get those unsightly clumps. It's a very natural style of mascara. 

Do you have a favourite mascara?

This looks like a good drugstore mascara, but I definitely am going to stick with my Benefit!

I think the packaging of this would draw me towards it but my favorite mascara is Opulash from Mac :)

It's a lovely mascara, but deffo not as good as a higher end brand such as MAC/Clinique or Benefit! A good stop gap until i (hopefully) have a summer job :)
