Falsies Mascara by Maybelline - Junky Stuff

Maybelline Falsies Mascara has made the Junky List!!

 I had a $1.00 off coupon for this mascara making the total cost around $5.00. I thought I had heard good things about this mascara so I was quite excited to try it out. Here is what the Maybelline website claims.
300% MORE VISIBLE LASHES corner-to-corner, no gaps

 The wand was nice, the formula looked very thick and goopy though. Come to find out after buying this, most of my friends who have tried it, HATED IT. I think I imagined hearing good things about it!!

Naked Eye

Falsies Mascara applied.

I did have some clumps and issues with eyelashes sticking together but those were not the big problem with this mascara. The problem is, it takes a damn sandblaster to remove it. I normally use mascara that washes off easily with Neutrogena Face Wash/ Makeup Remover all in one. I never use a separate remover to take my makeup off. I washed my eye area two times with the Neutrogena wash and I still had very sticky lashes and raccoon eyes. I had to go back in with a very oily makeup remover and saturate my lashes and really wipe hard to get it all off and even now, after sleeping and washing my face again this morning I can feel a sticky residue

So Falsies Mascara by Maybelline most DEFINITELY is on the Junky Stuff list!
Have you tried it? If so, what did you think??

Thanks for reading,



  1. awww thats sad u didnt like it.. I love it!!except the new flared one.. I live by the falsies.. but everyones different ..

  2. Good to know...tho, I wouldn't have bought it anyways. I absolutely HATE mascara commercials. Do they really think we are so stupid as to believe the eye models aren't wearing true falsies? Lame! On a side note...i like basic maybelline great lash mascara the most! Now, I DID try a sample of Chanel's mascara that curls the eyelashes and OMG it's FAB! However, it's way too pricey for me!

  3. It's my go-to!! That and benefit BADgirl lash make the most amazing lashes for me! I do have to let my makeup remover sit on my eye a little bit to remove.

    And I think it makes your lashes look great, imo. :)

  4. I can honestly say that I didn't like this product either. I have really short lashes so this did almost nothing to lengthen them. Now I didn't find it hard to remove but I do use either Neutrogena's make-up remover wipes or the Yes! To cucumbers. I'll definitely be sticking to Smashbox's Full Exposure. <3

  5. Yeah, I thought it was garbage too. Oh well, I got it half off at Walgreens a while back, so I wasn't too upset about it. I had tons of trouble with clumping and nastiness. It didn't help with length or volume in any way! So, thanks for getting the word out for everyone!

  6. I have this one and I think it sucks. It clumps my lashes together horribly.

  7. Suuuure... the one with the great review, I didn't get, but the one that's crap...yup I bought this. I didn't try it yet and maybe I should take it back and trade it for the Colossal!
