Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara : Review & Swatches

I love voluminous/volumizing mascaras and I always buy those because of 2 reasons: 1 I have long lashes so lengthening mascaras are not my requirement and 2 I like dramatic lashes :D. So I am always inclined towards volume mascaras. I never used to use mascara on daily basis until recently. But these days I’m mostly in mascara and lipstick only mood :P. Today I am going to review Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara or Maybelline The Falsies Mascara as most of the people call it.

My Experience with Maybelline The Falsies Mascara:

Maybelline The Falsies Mascara comes in both washable and waterproof variant, please check it on packaging carefully before buying it. I am reviewing waterproof version here.


Maybelline The Falsies Mascara comes in a fat bright purple packaging with metallic blue font over it. The packaging is quite chic and light-weight. The wand of Maybelline The Falsies Mascara is said to be patented and it is a flexible spoon type which are perfect for volumizing mascaras. The wand picks up product pretty well and while applying mascara the wand separates and coats the lashes pretty well. Wand bristles are not sharp of pokey.

Texture & Pigmentation:

Texture of Maybelline falsies mascara is liquid like and thus it does not feel heavy or clumpy while applying many coats. The pigmentation is quite good, mascara is jet black and coats lashes perfectly even in single coat.


For everyday kinda look I apply 1-2 coats and to get full-blown falsies kinda look, I need 2-3 coats. Even on applying 3 coats it does not clump on me. Each coat dries up fast so it becomes easier to layer it up. With 3 coats I get full-blown falsies look on my lashes :). It will give a slight lift to your lashes but not proper curl, so If you have straight lashes then I suggest you curl them before. It holds the curl good on me given I have slightly curled and long lashes.

Coming to staying power, it stays all day, does not shed or freckles throughout the day. And it is waterproof, I mean really waterproof. You laugh, cry, rub your eyes or even apply cream on your face, it wont budge and you are gonna need oil or a oil based makeup remover/balm to clean it up completely. It is a pain to clean many time. And it does not irritate my sensitive eyes.

Maybelline The Falsies Waterproof Mascara Swatches:


Final Verdict: 4.9/5

Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara holds all the claims true. I love most of Maybelline mascaras. Many even compare this to L’Oreal Million Lashes however I have not tried the L’Oreal one yet. Maybelline The Falsies Waterproof Mascara does add volume and length to lashes and give falsies kinda look in 3 coats. It stays all day and is waterproof. If you like washable mascara, they have washable version as well. Overall This is a fantastic mascara under 500 and I love it…
