As requested, today on this beautiful afternoon I'm going to sit outside and enjoy a cup of lemon water and talk about the somewhat new Maybelline Big Eyes Mascara which falls under the "falsies" category. Now, when I saw this mascara on blogs and youtube I was so excited because first, I love every Maybelline mascara I own, and one of my all time favorite mascaras is the original Falsies. There's always a point in life where you get disappointed, whether it's with people, school, work, and in my case, mascara.
I don't really like this mascara.
If you noticed in the above statement, I didn't use the word "hate". I don't hate this mascara. I said I don't really like this mascara. If I were to rate it I'd give it a C. Being generous, I didn't add a minus sign to this letter grade.
So you're probably wondering why I didn't rate this mascara an A or a B. But before I let you know, I just wanted to make a disclaimer and say that this is just my opinion. You're entitled to you're own opinion, but this is what happened to me when I used this mascara.

If you read the claims, you could probably understand why I was so excited to make this purchase! However, it didn't turn out as well as I was expecting which is probably why I ended up disappointed. The mascara went on somewhat dry and I had to apply multiple layers on my top lashes to achieve the "falsies" look that I would've gotten in 2 strokes with my original falsies. However, keep in mind that my ethnicity is Asian, and I have short, sparse lashes. For the bottom lashes, the small brush didn't collect product at all. I loved the idea of a separate brush for my lower lashes with a smaller brush, but it seemed as though no product at all was being transfered onto my lashes so no color or length was added.

In conclusion, I was mostly upset with this product just because it did not meet my expectations.
Until Next Time,
