The festive season is just round the corner, and I am reviewing a new mascara in town. I have to get myself ready for the festivities; and so do all of you. I have already reviewed the Lakme Face Stylist Concealer in shade Honey, which should be good, along with your foundation in order to create a flawless skin. For the eyes, you may apply some kohl kajal (Lakme Absolute Kohl Kajal) or any other dark kajal you prefer. You may also apply some metallic eyeliners (like the Clinique Quickliner Intense) to your eyes. To finish the eye makeup, I am reviewing this mascara; which is a new one (at least in India); and absolutely fresh for the celebrations. I will next be reviewing some bold lipstick shades for the festive season. Let’s all get ready to welcome the new year; in a very fresh and natural look.
Revolutionary dual-ended mascara for 360 degree All Around Lash Glam. Two brushes specifically designed for top and bottom lashes. Special quick dry formula holds lashes in place. Why you’ll love it: Now amplify lashes 360! The Upper brush pushes lashes over the top while the lower micro-brush grabs every tiny bottom lash for a full circle effect. For best results: Apply the Upper Brush against the top lashes and sweep from root to tip until a clean, voluminous look is achieved, followed by the lower lash line using the Micro Brush. Do not let dry between coats. Removes with soap water or with Maybelline Clean Express Eye Makeup Remover.
Rs. 599/- for 8.7 ml product.
My Experience with Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Waterproof Mascara:
I have had a good experience with Maybelline “The Falsies” mascara. However, since I am on a new eye makeup routine, I decided to purchase a new one. Anyway, I discard my mascaras every 3-4 months; for hygiene sake 🙂
Packaging: The mascara tube comes packed in a cardboard, with plastic wrap. on which all information is mentioned. The macara tube itself had two colors – fuchsia pink and black. There are two ends in this tube, and each end can be opened separately. The middle part holds two types of spoolies, a bigger one for the upper lashes and a smaller one for the lower lashes. I really liked this concept, since I always struggle with my lower lashes. So, in fact, you are getting two mascara at the price of one!
Formula: The formula is not runny at all. In fact, it has a gel like consistency, which does not run out of the bottle. The formula applies slightly wet on the lashes, but dries up pretty quickly, so it does not smudge on the surrounding eye area. This is a waterproof mascara; very good for daytime or party wear, as it does not smudge at all. It can be removed using an oil-based cleanser or an eye makeup remover.
Pigmentation: The shade is named “Very Black,” and it is indeed quite a black shade, it is the blackest of black, but it is quite decent for a fresh daytime look, or a party look as well.
Lasting Time: It lasts quite well, around the entire day time of 7-8 hours. In fact, it comes off when I take it off.
Application: I would have really liked the two ends, which come off, to hold the spoolies, rather than the middle part, but that is my preference. Apart from that, I quite like the spoolies provided. The upper lashes spoolie provides adequate and even coating of the lashes. It provides some volume and curl to the lashes. If you have curled your eyelashes, this will hold the curl quite well. However, this is not a curling or volumising mascara by itself. It separates the lashes quite decently, however, if you apply more than two coats, there are some issues of clumping, for which you will need a separate clean spoolie. The lower lash mascara applicator is really very good, it decently separates the lashes, does not smudge into the surrounding area, and one can really get into the nooks and corners with these applicators. Both applicators are quite decent, providing a more than average look for daytime, or small parties.
