I posted my review on Maybelline New York The Falsies Volum' Express Mascara at and wanted to share my thoughts and pictures with you. If you found my review helpful  give me a vote there. Cheers!

Thank you for sending me a tube of Maybelline New York The Falsies Volum' Express Mascara to review and coupons to share with friends, family, co-workers.

The highly pigmented, and rich pro-keratin fibre formula significantly lengthened my lashes and provide noticeable volume. In my opinion, this mascara adds more length than volume. I have yet to find any other mascara that lengthens as well as The Falsies, but I have had achieved better volume with Maybelline’s XXL Pro Volume Mascara.

My next amazement was the technology behind the brush. The curved brush was able to grab every single eyelash (yes, including the baby lashes) and fan out my lashes. Finally, I’m very happy that the product is long-wearing; I did not experience any flaking, smudging or clumping. In other words, this mascara has lasted through intensive physical activity (i.e. running), heat, and humidity.

Despite applying several coats of the product on I wasn't able to achieve the 'false lashes look' or anything close with this mascara. However, the product was not a total disappointment for me. I intend on purchasing this mascara in the future and I have already recommended this product to several friends. This is my favorite mascara on the market that I have stumbled upon.

The mascara has a self-life of six months.

One of the best mascaras I have used too! :) It's very dark and "wet". It's not a dry flaky formula. Although this product is more hyped up than it needs to be. Marketing people have gotten into our heads! AHHHHH!

I really like this mascara too. Although it is a bit hyped up. I definity didn't get the false lashes look. Also the mascara is scentless.

I saw their stand at RCSS, and couldn't resist; I picked up one! I can't wait to try it. ^^ Also Lash Blast mascara was on sale for $4.99. I bought four tubes today. -_-;;;

Damn, I bought this for $10.99 at shoppers. Ahhhh. I like how it extends my lashes but doesn't live up to its promise of false lashes look. If it did this product would be legendary...and revolutionary.
