I love wearing false eyelashes. I actually prefer wearing false eyelashes than applying mascara. There was even a year when I always had eyelash extensions. I just find long lashes really really sexy.
Of course, I also tried mascaras that claim to make my lashes longer than usual and the volume that I desire. So, when I saw Maybelline's The Falsies mascara, I just knew I had to try it. One of my friends also uses the same mascara and she likes it. So, it must be good, yeh?

I'm a bit disappointed with mascara - or maybe with Maybelline's mascaras in general. I know a lot of ladies swear by Maybelline's mascara (even my mom) but it just doesn't work for me. Sure, it's affordable and does lengthen and give volume on my lashes. But it's not close to the length and volume that they promise. Actually, those two cons would have been okay to deal with because it is after all a mascara only. You really can't expect it to give you that falsies effect. It's just a faux advertisement to sell. What turned me off the most is that it smears/smudges when your eyes get watery (due to yawning, crying or whathaveyou). It's one thing about the volume & length. But it's another thing when the mascara smears. For me, it's the most important component in a mascara.
Now, this review might not be applicable to everyone. I'm very acidic. I have too much pH going on thru my body and this might be the reason why I get different results. But still. I have been using Majolica Majorca since 2009 or 2010 but it never smeared on me. Just stating an example.
So, will I re-purchase? Probably not. But I'll finish this tube of mascara cos this still cost me USD8. I got mine at Duty Free, btw.
Maybelline The Falsies mascara is available at all leading department stores nationwide for PhP449.
