Product: Maybelline Falsies Mascara (Black Drama): Blackest Black
Price: RRP £8.19
What does it claim?
Maybelline describe this mascara as 'dramatic effect'. A voluminous look in 'matte black'. A new formula with extra long fibres and carbon black pigments, creating lashes that look longer and thicker. The mascara includes a patented 'spoon brush' which supposedly fans out lashes and ensures generous product deposit. The unique flexible stem is designed to help build volume without clumping.
This is what the 'spoon brush' looks like, the brush is pretty big and as soon as you open this perfectly packaged mascara, it's clear to see that the brush is loaded with long fibers. I found the wand fairly easy to use and for a wand so big (I usually dislike big wands as my lashes are tiny) I found it relatively easy to use. Application was pretty basic, I used the good old zig-zig method to ensure a even and generous coat.
Before Mascara: Lashes curled with Shu Uemura Lash Curlers
After one coat: I was pretty impressed, one fine coat instantly gave my lashes a dramatic effect, they looked longer, thicker and pretty defined.
Unlike many mascara's which give me volume, these held onto the curl pretty well. No drooping lashes.
After my 3rd coat: Lashes are beginning to clump so I stop here. Curl has held really well, lashes look thick, longer and definitely very dramatic indeed. The pigment is very intense, my lashes stood out so much paired with my non make-up face!
I am definitely VERY impressed with this mascara, It performed better than expected! This is my 1st drugstore mascara in probably about a year, I had been devoted to my Majolica Majorca Lash Expander but I thought it was time I ventured back into the mascara market. I would buy this again, not only does it give a great and pleasing effect, the price is also very purse friendly. I have always been a Maybelline mascara fan, they have some of the best drugstore mascara's (along with Loreal). Mascara's need to be replaced every 3 months or so, maybe even sooner depending on the formula and how often you use it. The thought of spending £££ on a mascara is not an option for me, I have tried many which I regret and end up thinking 'I should of just bought a drugstore one'.
So, Have any of you tried this mascara? and how do you feel about high end/drugstore mascara?
