MASCARA MARCH – Volum’ Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara

I’m not really sure why volume is spelled without an ‘e’ in the name of this mascara and I can’t stop thinking about it.  I think they’re trying to be French, but it’s Maybelline New York so who knows. Are they saying it so fast (express, if you will) that the ‘e’ fell off? Are they saying it like a pirate that moonlights as a MUA? Is it not even meant to be volume and it’s a whole other word that I don’t know?…Imma google it. Nope, only in French. I dunno, I don’t get it. Anyway, on with the review.

To avoid me going on and on about the disappearance of the e, I’ll hereafter refer to this mascara only as “The Flasies”.

I was nervous about this mascara.  The ads are so obviously not real lashes that I expected the results to be the exact opposite. I understand that it is called The Falsies, and it is meant to make your real lashes look like false lashes but they are straight up false lashes.

I bought this because I have a shopping problem and I convinced myself that I needed to buy it, use it once or twice and do a review. And, well, here we are! So maybe I don’t have a shopping problem after all! Woo!  On I shop.

Ain’t nobody got lashes like that IRL.

I was very pleasantly surprised that this is a mascara I can happily wear regularly! It can easily work with a lashy day look or a sexy night-time look, a trick that not all mascaras can pull off.

Volume (with an e): Maybelline tells me that this mascara has Kera-Fibres that bring all the volume, and they’re doing a pretty good job.  I have mascaras that give me more volume but for the price it volumises beautifully.

Length: This is where this mascara really shines.  Lashes for daysssss.  I have generally found it hard to get delivery on both volume and length from one mascara; I tend to use two to get the look I’m after.  But this mascara does both! Well done Maybelline! The best part? No clumping.


Colour: It’s black. What more can you ask for? It’s neither the most pigmented nor the dullest mascara I own.  And I’m okay with mediocre when it’s delivering so well in the other areas.

Recommend? Yes! When I started using this mascara again for this review I kept saying to myself “Why on earth don’t I wear this more often!”. If you want one mascara that looks natural for everyday but can give you the va-va-voom you’re after for nights out, then get this into your life.
