Review: Maybelline Volum Express The Falsies, Fan Out Lashes Just Like Any Glamorous Falsies?

False lash glam, instantly!  
• Patented Spoon Brush fans out lashes from corner-to-corner, while our Pro-Keratin formula instantly builds volume without clumping
• Unique flexible wand helps to lift and separate lashes to provide the look of 300% more visible, fuller lashes, no gaps from any angle
• Contact lens safe and ophthalmologist-tested
• Waterproof, also available in Washable formula’ – Maybelline

When I first heard about Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies, it was the rave of many makeup junkies in the US. I believe that Maybelline Malaysia will definitely bring this mascara in. Why do I say so? Intuition, it’s just a matter of how long it takes for it to arrive here and it did. I was so happy!

The spoon brush of the wand helps to fan out the lashes making the mascara application effortless. It scoops and lift the lashes whilst coating each lash with its formula. The formula is not extremely wet but there is still a need to be careful with the application especially at the tip of the brush where most of the formula could get on. The shade that I have gotten here is Waterproof Black.

I usually curl my lashes before applying mascara, very basic and crucial step unless if you have naturally curled lashes.

  • Single coat – my lashes are much thicken, more defined and lifted
  • Double coat – a little length, more volume created and great lifting effect, my lower lashes look far more visible

When I double coat it, I was worried that it would clump and harden the lashes since it’s waterproof formula but I was wrong. It makes my lashes feeling ‘rubbery’ that when I layer the second coat, it doesn’t clump and the brush actually helps to separate my lashes.

I have it for 9.5 hours and it did not smudge on me. It holds the curl so well, also no panda eye effect at all.

I have used Lancome Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover and it comes off effortlessly too. The cotton looks disgusting but that’s the result of removing the mascara on both eyes. It literally melts the mascara off my lashes.

Now, I get the hype of this mascara or at least, it worked great on me! It doesn’t make my lashes look like falsies but the outcome of using this mascara is definitely promising. It lasted so well, no smudge and easy removal. I would recommend this if you’re looking for more volume on your lashes. The price is a little hefty for a drugstore makeup, its better to looking out for sales!
