Review & Swatches: Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes


Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes
Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara is a dual-ended mascara with two wands - one built for the top lashes and the other for the bottom - and one formula. While I haven't used the original Falsies mascara, I assume that this one has the same formula.

The brush meant for the top lashes has multidimensional natural bristles (rather than rubber) and a tapered tip. Paired with the formula, I found it provided a fair amount of curl and some good length, but wasn't completely clump-free. The bottom lash wand is long and narrow with evenly distributed spiraling bristles that are perfect for delicately laying product on the lashes so as not to clump them. It also works well to help apply a "priming" layer of mascara to top lashes that I found kept them from clumping less (similar to the it Cosmetics Tightline Mascara) I have larger eyes and didn't have a problem with it, but those with smaller or more narrow eyes might find this wand to be a tad long.

The formula is smack dab in between wet and dry, which allowed for some building that I felt worked really well on my lashes. Once set, it didn't move for anything - no smudging or flaking - yet washed off easily. Supposedly a waterproof formula debuts in July, but I don't see a need for it given how well this performed.

Overall, the formula claims to give you "bigger wide open eyes." Given the before and after below, I think it did its job - although I wouldn't say it looks like I'm wearing falsies. Still, the formula is great and it passed the wear-test with flying colors. For $9.49, I think this mascara is well worth it!
