Review: Maybelline Volum' Express The Falsies Mascara

Hello beautifuls!

So, I was requested to do a review on my favorite drugstore mascara, and I was actually super excited to do this post because my favorite drugstore mascara is one of my holy grail beauty products. If you want a post on my favorite high-end mascara, then I'll be sure to do a post on it as well! My favorite drugstore mascara is none other than the Maybelline Volum' Express The Falsies Mascara (Maybelline Falsies for short).

Maybelline The Falsies Mascara $5.00-$8.00, prices vary by location
The Claims:
More visible lashesNew
  • Fills in the gaps
  • Instant volume
  • Spoon brush
  • False lash effect
  • with Pro-Kera + Fibers
  • Ophthalmologist Tested
  • Contact Lens Safe
Unique flexible wand helps to lift and separate lashes to provide the look of more lashes.
Patented Spoon brush and Kera-fiber formula instantly build 5x more volume without clumping to complete the false lash look.
Made in U.S.A.

I think it's important if you all knew the type of lashes I have. I have short and sparse lashes..."asian" eyelashes, if you will. When it comes to mascara I look for 3 important factors; length, volume, and wear. This mascara has both positive and negative reviews. As you can see, I have 2 more tubes behind my newly purchased one. This just shows how much I'm obsessed with this mascara. Now, if you're someone who piles mascara on like you want to use one tube per lash, then of course this mascara will clump. I apply just 2-3 coats of this mascara and WOW-E does this mascara not only provide great volume, length and since I purchased the waterproof formula it lasts all day even underwater, but if you purchase it in Very Black, then you are settled with a gorgeous dark black color that really makes your eyes pop!



Until Next Time,

BB Cream for hair? Review: Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 BB Creme

Hey beautifuls!

So, I went online recently to one of my favorite websites teenvogue.com and I stumbled upon a post talking about a BB cream for hair. I just wanted to share my opinion, if that's alright!

So, I knew about BB creams way before I knew much about makeup because my cousin used it and she's from Asia. BB creams have now reached the US and no offense to some of my favorite companies, but some just claim their product is a BB cream and hopped on the bandwagon without actually creating a BB cream but a tinted moisturizer. It's kind of upsetting.

Anyways, about the Pantene BB cream, it's $5.99 on drugstore.com and it's supposed to be a 10-in-1 miracle hair product.

I feel like the word "BB cream" is getting too misused in the states, but that's just my opinion. I would feel more intrigued with this product if they didn't put "BB" on the label. It seems more as a multi-purpose styling product, which is basically what is is. 

I haven't purchased it, but I will do a full review if I do!

Until Next Time,
