I'm going to start this post off by saying that I have seen so many good reviews for this mascara. I'm only going to say this once, because it's really pains me to say it, but I don't like this mascara at all. (It's like waxing, or ripping a Biore nose strip off). I really, really, really want to love this mascara, but I can't. It saddens me really.
Right at the root of the lashes, you can see a sort of greyish/blondish line of eyelash that just isn't covered which is even more noticeable when paired with black eye liner - it just highlights the pale line in the middle! I really don't like this and knowing it's there just annoys me!
The thing that really bugs me with Maybelline: The Falsies is that my eyelashes look beautiful with this mascara on, but as soon as I blink, you can see blatantly on the top of my lashes where I haven't put any mascara whatsoever. You might be thinking "Ellie, just put some mascara on top, It isn't rocket science." But my beauts, it is! With as little or as much product I have on the wand, too much goes on and it completely ruins the once beautiful eyelashes. The mascara goes all clumpy, It looks as though I only have about 4 eyelashes on each eye and it looks disgusting.
Some of you may be thinking that these look really nice, others of you might not. But to me they look very spider leg like and fake. I guess it's in the name really but I didn't think it would make them look this fake. What makes it worse is when there is this much product on my eyelashes it's quite painful to take of and literally feels like I'm ripping my eyelashes off. I actually feel my eyelids pulling away from my eyeballs. *shudder*
If you don't like the way they look, you know not to try it, If you do however, go for it! Everyone loves different looks! For now though, I'm going to finish up what I've got left with plain tops of my eye lashes and go on a search for a new mascara, any recommendations?
Be happy, Be beautiful and Be YOU!
