Mascara Soulmate: Maybelline Volum Express The Falsies

I've tried on a lot of mascara brands before and I've had my favorites, but I've never been loyal to one. I don't think I have ever repurchased the same tube of mascara! But I'm pretty sure Maybelline's The Falsies will break my mascara-hopping habit. I was actually selling these and several other Volum Express mascaras(The Colossal, The One by One, etc) on my online store a couple of months ago, and I'm glad I was able to save one for myself. Personally, this is the best mascara I've tried (also better than the overhyped Maybelline Great Lash, which I found quite disappointing).

It has a curved spoon brush instead of the usual straight brush
Left: Curled only, no mascara. Right: Curled with mascara

Finished look for work

What I Like:

  • Lengthens and volumizes
  • So easy to apply, doesn't clump
  • I don't need to comb my lashes after application (which I used to do when I used Estee Lauder because it made my lashes clump)
  • No spidery lash effect
  • You're good to go with 2 coats
  • Definitely gives you dramatic lashes
  • Cute packaging, I love the purple tube and metallic blue lettering

What I don't Like:
None! Or maybe just the fact that it's so overpriced at the mall (Php 449 or Php 449 I'm not sure), I used to sell it for only Php 375. I'm currently all sold out already :(

Would I repurchase?
Yes yes yes! Really lives up to its name "The Falsies". I guess I can say I've finally found my mascara soulmate after years of searching :)
