Maybelline Falsies Flared Mascara

Hey there wonderful humans!


If you guys haven’t noticed my blog may look a weeeee different. Well that’s because I moved this baby over to word press! I figured it was going to be necessary at some point and that I may as well get it out of the way. I’m not the most tech savvy but it was less drama for me then when I got my domain (That was a whole other pain in the ass). It’s getting close to uni break for me and I cannot wait to be blogging full force again.

It’s time for another review and I thoroughly believe mascara is the back bone of the makeup world so today’s review is going to be on a mascara. If that wasn’t already made pretty obvious by the tittle of the post.
Here we go!


Formula: The formula is on the thicker side but still wet. Once it’s opened it does begin to dry but it takes a long time before it becomes unusable. If anything it gets better and better once its opened.
Uni lash?: It’s not a separating and defining mascara but it doesn’t clump the lashes in a gross way.
Price: $19.95 AUD
What does it do?: The whole idea behind this mascara is that it makes your lashes look crazy dramatic as though you are wearing false lashes without the actual dilemma of putting on actual false lashes.
Does it do what it claims to do?: I haven’t actually ever worn false lashes and I have naturally long lashes but this mascara does give crazy volume and makes your lashes look very dramatic.
Availability: Priceline, Woolworths, Target, Coles, Big W, Kmart
Panda eyes?: I don’t have oily skin and so waterproof mascara is unnecessary for me. This mascara does come in a waterproof version so if you need it, it’s there.
Does it hold a curl?: I do find that it holds a curl though the formula of the mascara is slightly  heavier so it can sometimes weigh down your lashes.
Difficult to remove?: Though I use a cleansing oil to remove all of my makeup which makes it super easy and pretty much gets off everything. I do notice that this mascara is slightly more difficult to remove and sometimes I have to go in with eye makeup remover or micellar water to remove the rest.
Who’d like it?: If you like volumizing dramatic lashes, this mascara is for you. It’s also a reasonable price (not if you’re aussies).
Who wouldn’t like it?: Those who like natural and defining mascaras or who usually go for high end mascaras won’t like this mascara.
Rating: 8/10
Overall thoughts: It’s an awesome mascara. It makes your lashes pop, gives good volume and is affordable. Maybelline have a couple of great mascaras, this is definitely a mascara to check out though it’s one that has greatly circulated in the blogging community so I’m sure you guys have heard enough about it.
Would I repurchase it?: I’m up to my second tube. This is one of the mascaras I will keep going back to.


That wraps up todays post! Have you guys tried this mascara? Tell me your thoughts! What other mascaras have you been loving. Be sure to drop a comment and say Hi. Have a wonderful day and I’ll see you guys in the next post.

    This sounds like a great mascara. I have been using and testing many lately but they are either volumizing or lenghtening, I haven’t found one that gives both volume and length!

    That one has been sitting on my wishlist for ages, as I love dramatic, volumized lashes. But there are so many mascaras I already purchased, I need to go through them first.
    Oh, and I love the new, sleek design. I moved to WordPress a year ago and never regretted it.

    Any mascara that doesn’t clump the lashes would be right for me,that is why i also use Maybelline as well. Great review.

      I can tolderate a little bit of clumping but yes the whole uni lash look isn’t cute.

    Congrats on the WordPress move!! I’m really into defining and subtle lashes at the moment so probably wouldn’t go for this at the moment, but sounds great for amping up the volume!

      Thank you very much! Yes I wouldn’t call this mascara crazy dramatic but it’s also not on the subtle side. Cover girl is the brand to go for when you’re thinking of subtle mascaras, their lash blast and lash fusion are very subtle.

    This sounds great. I am addicted to Benefit mascaras, so this would make for a great option x

      This is definitely a throw back mascara for me, one of the first Maybelline one’s I tried! They are pretty good when it comes to their mascaras and concealers.

    Congratulations on your move to WordPress. Many are making the move. I haven’t tried this mascara, but if it gives volume I’m all for it.

      Thank you! I was nervous because I am not technology savvy and getting my own domain name was a long and traumatic experience hahaha but I am glad I did it, since it was going t be inevitable for me.

    I’m always shocked when I hear the price of makeup in Australia. Now I feel bad for complaining when a drugstore mascara costs over $10 lol. This mascara sounds like it worked really well for you!

    I haven’t tried this. The only high street brand for mascara I go to was L’Oréal but I was looking to change it up. I have eyelash extensions at the moment but once I’m over them I’ll give this a go.

      Maybelline is a well rounded brand when it comes to mascaras, I do want to try L’Oréal Paris mascaras.

    Congratulations on the WordPress move 🙂 I was really nervous when I was getting my own Domain name earlier this year too, fortunately it ended up all going smoothly as I found someone who was able to help me with the transition.

    I’m always looking for new mascara recommendations so this is great – especially as it doesn’t break the bank! I’m using Lancome’s Hypnose at the moment which I love but it’s so expensive :'( I really like your blog – do you want to follow each other on Bloglovin’ so we can keep up with eachothers’ posts?

    […] This was my favorite Maybelline mascara till I discovered others I loved more! This mascara does give lots of volume but I feel like it doesn’t give my lashes much length. It’s an overall nice mascara but since Maybelline makes others that are far better it doesn’t seem as good anymore. I’ll link you my review so you can hear my thoughts back when I was obsessed with it. |Review| […]
