At work the other day I noticed the eyelashes of a girl I work with (what? you don't notice eyelashes?). The more I looked, the more I was convinced they were fake - so I asked! She said they weren't but she was trying a new mascara she bought from the drugstore. Always one to run out and try the latest (affordable!) beauty product, I had to try it for myself.
This is what she used.
the Falsies Volum' Express Flared by Maybelline.
I'm fortunate in the respect that I have always had pretty long eyelashes and was fairly satisfied with my current mascara that I've been using for years (L'Oreal Voluminous Original) but, like I told my co-worker, I want lashes so long that people can feel the breeze when I bat them!
It took a week or so of using (me getting use to the applicator and/or proper applicator coating needed to occur as tends to be the case with a brand new mascara) but I noticed yesterday I was having a really good eyelash day (mind you, I apply my makeup on a moving train)!
It takes a little time to perfect application and proper coatage (is that a word?!) of the lashes but I'm liking this new stuff! I continued to apply more coats after this pic (just for fun!) and wound up looking like a Vegas showgirl so you have to experiment to get the look you want. The only "dislikes" I found were that it does have a strong odor for a minute or two until it dries and it takes a little longer to remove than my previous mascara - nothing major.
All in all though, I'm pretty happy with this product! If you decide to try (or already have) let me know what you thought!
