A while ago, I was in Superdrug and I got sucked in by a 3 for 2 deal on Maybelline. Deciding to give in to the hype, I picked up The Falsies mascara. I wasn't going to cos I hated the advert - I'm sorry but how silly did the model look? I only ended up getting it because it was the only other Maybelline item I would see myself using. I know everybody and his (or her) dog has reviewed this, but I thought I'd add my perspective into the mix.

So did I end up looking like this? Of course I damn well didn't. A) I can't physically photoshop my own eyes in reality and B) Eyeliner like this is reserved for the goth undercurrent in society. In my opinion anyway.
Maybelline say: Instant false glam in a tube. The Falsies Mascara delivers a false lash look; giving you a full set of voluminous, bold, fanned out lashes and the appearance of no gaps from any angle. The Pro-Keratin and Fibre enriched formula is designed to deliver immediate results, distributing volume and visible intensity to your lashes. The patented 'Spoon' shaped brush helps fan lashes out. The Falsies Mascara is designed to give the appearance of no gaps and spaces, In a wink lashes you didn't even know you had look visibly thickened!
I say: For a mascara that aims to make you look like you have false lashes on, I'd have to say this is a bit of a fail. It added a bit of volume but nothing that overly wowed me or that I couldn't get from any other mascara. The 'Spoon' shaped brush didn't help fan lashes out. And as for giving the appearance of no gaps and spaces, that was only helped by the black eyeliner that I had on my top lash line. A bit of a fail there Maybelline.
I say: I followed the directions. It's not as easy as it sounds. Especially on your lower lashes! I have to say I was not impressed with this mascara at all. Give me my £5.99 17 Wild Curls any day :D
