I’m too much of a mascara person. I have super tiny eyes, which looks sluggish and fatigued most of the time. My go-to mascara has to be Maybelline Colossal Mascara. I have been using it for five years and must have repurchased it a plethora of times. But there’s no harm in trying new products, right? Especially when a product is raved so much globally. So, I decided to try my hands on the Maybelline Volum’ Express Falsies Mascara. Read on to know how it fared!
What The Company Says About The Product:
This pro-keratin and kera-fiber enriched mascara will fan out the lashes 8 times, giving a bold, false lashes look. The flexible want will help give you voluminous lashes without clumping.
The mascara comes in an attractive cardboard packaging, which has a plastic mold that contains the product. The mascara bottle is vibrant purple in color with writings in blue. Lovely color combination, isn’t it?
As you can see in the picture, the wand is slightly curved, with U-shaped on one side. The technical term for such wands is spoon style brush. The shape will help coat your lashes evenly, especially in the corner and lower lashes. It adds length and gives a nice curl to the lashes as well. The brush is neither too dense nor too huge for the hands, which is another plus point. It picks up the right amount of product to prevent clumping.
The consistency of this mascara is neither thick nor runny, just perfect.
Good things first. The pigmentation of this mascara is excellent. It will give a stunning result if you want a smoky and mysterious look. Two coats are enough to get a wide-eyed look. But you must wait for a few seconds before applying the second coat. Yes, it will clump a bit if you keep layering it, but I believe that happens with almost every mascara.
Secondly, it doesn’t feel heavy on the lashes, which is rare with drugstore mascaras. Most of the drugstore mascaras I’ve tried feel heavy on the lashes to me.

Thirdly, and most importantly, it does give a false lash effect, though 8x is an exaggeration.
Now let’s come to the bad things. One thing that irks me the most about this mascara is the long time it takes in drying. So you have to apply the second coat fast to avoid clumping
Removing it can be a pain, even the washable one. I wonder how people who use waterproof mascara remove it.
Pros Of Maybelline Volum’ Express Falsies Mascara:
- Excellent color pay off
- Curls and lengthens the lashes
- Attractive packaging
- Does not feel heavy
Cons Of Maybelline Volum’ Express Falsies Mascara:
- Clumps a bit
- The result isn’t as dramatic as the brand claims.
- Mine isn’t waterproof, which is not really a con as waterproof mascaras are a pain to remove. You can purchase the waterproof one if you want.
Live It Beautiful Rating: 4/5
Maybelline Volum’ Express Falsies Mascara is one of the bestsellers from the brand and deservedly so. After using this mascara, I cannot decide which one I like more. This or my good ol’ Colossal Mascara. I’d recommend you people try it as well, if your current mascara is approaching expiry date or is nearly finished. I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
