About Me

My photo
This make-up artist and esthetician has a (bordering on unhealthy) addiction to all things beauty! No amount of eyeshadows or cream liners will ever be enough! I go giddy for all things girly. Lipgloss might not be able to heal the world, but it can lift a gal's spirits!

Maybelline Falsies Mascara

Oh Girls, I really try to be nice when it comes to beauty products- I do! Very rarely will I talk poorly about make-up, since I feel that in someway all my make-up products are my children. However I've seen some positive reviews of this product & yours truly has a different take on it- so of course I needed to share. First off I have long lashes(thanks Latisse!), but oily skin so it's a struggle for me to find a mascara that doesn't end up with me looking like a football player. I tend to loathe waterproof versions however- you can't build the product & end up rubbing your poor lashes out to get it off. I don't know what I was expecting with Maybelline's Falsies Mascara, but let's just say the name gave me "false" hope. The brush was interesting, rather flat & the wand flexes a bit when applying. It went on well, that wasn't the issue, though it still smeared slightly like most do on me. What I had the problem with was getting it off! I tried everything- standard remover, milky cleansers, even resorting to Lancome's BiFacil dual phased eye make-up remover, but to no avail. It didn't create tubes the way Blinc mascara does- but I just couldn't get it off! It drove me crazy for 3 days straight. Have any of my beauties tried it & if so - what's your take on it?

Peace. Love. Lipgloss. M

I haven't tried it, but I have the same problem finding a non-waterproof mascara that doesn't leave me looking like the football player. Do you have one you recommend or at least like?

I also was not impressed with this mascara--I especially hate the brush. And, I, like you, have succumbed to the lure of Latisse so my lashes are already, as my husband says, freakishly long. I use cetaphil and it came off fine with that, but I still wasn't impressed and the brush hurt my eyelids.

I saw so many good reviews so I tried it and I wasn't really impressed either. I much prefer LashBlast over it but I didn't have trouble taking it off (I use cold cream).

I tried this to and didn't like it. I thought I must just not get it based on all of the reviews, I was the only one who didn't love the mascara. I didn't have a hard time getting it off, it just didn't help my sad little lashes.

aha! This makes me feel better that others didn't love Falsies either. after reading all the glowing reviews, I thought maybe I bought an imposter! I'll have to try lashblast- lately I sandwich 3 mascaras - always with mally's Volumizing mascara in the center!
