I will admit I was a little dubious as to what I'd think of it, I never really liked the look of the wand and I didn't know if it would make my lashes look how I like them, which is full, long and stand-out.
After using it a few times, I'm really not sure how I feel about it. I picked mine up in the waterproof version so I don't know how that fares compared to the standard Falsies but I found this to be a fairly dry formula. It gives me a natural, fluttery look after one coat but if I try and apply a second coat, it tends to look a little clumpy.
I'm not a huge fan of the brush, it's a bit difficult to work with and I find that it picks up quite a lot of excess product when it first comes out of the tube and distributes it around my eye area as I apply it, not a huge issue as I'm fairly clumsy with application at the best of times but it still seems to give me more trouble than usual. Also, despite having picked this up in the waterproof formula, I've found that it transfers to my lower and upper eye area after a couple of hours wear, crumbles quite readily and is quite tricky to remove at night.
One thing I will say it does well is that it definitely holds a curl. I can curl my lashes and apply this at 9am and they stay looking perky all day until I take it off at 11pm, which is definitely something a lot of mascaras tend to fail at but it's still not enough to make me love this mascara.
I'll probably get round to using the tube up but I don't think I'll be repurchasing it again, offer or not! Max Factor still reign the mascara kingdom as far as I'm concerned but I'll still be keeping up my quest to find the perfect mascara, if such a thing exists.
How did you find Maybelline's The Falsies?
