Maybelline the Falsies FLARED Mascara: Swatches + Review!!

Long time no blog, people!!
But now that my week of finals (aka week of h*** and sadomasochism [us college students are paying for this torture, after all]) is FINALly (heh) over I've got blog posts planned for this weekend and videos I'm hoping to make in the near future so I'll be around more often :)

So, to start things off I've got a review on the recently famous and hyped Maybelline the Falsies FLARED mascara. How did I feel about it?
Take the jump below, as usual, to find out!!

(that is my guttural noise for love that I try never to vocalize)

After the letdown that was Model Co.'s FIBRE LASHXTEND Mascara (you can check out my full review here) I was really motivated to find one that actually worked. And, with all of the hype this Maybelline mascara has been receiving lately (mainly by the beauty community on YouTube), I figured I'd give it a shot.
What can I say, the beating that finals takes on me/my ego tends to make me want to shatter other people's happiness (no worries though, I never act on these emotions as they are situational and irrational haha).


I'm not sure if it's the curved shape of the wand, the formula of the mascara itself, or a combination of the two but this mascara lives up to the hype it receives and then some. 
Just check out the photos below for proof!

How fantastic is this mascara!? 
It gives the perfect combination of volume and length without looking TOO scandalous for wear during the day and applies like a dream; no clumping or flaking to speak of.

So there you have it people; if you're in the market for a new mascara that won't break the bank (I got mine for $6.99 at Target) and gives you beautiful length and volume then this is the mascara for you. I couldn't be happier with my Maybelline the Falsies FLARED mascara and hope that it continues to perform in the future (I can't tell you how many times I've fallen in love with a mascara and then purchased another tube only to find that the company has changed the formulation *sob*).

Have you tried Maybelline's the Falsies FLARED mascara?
Love it? Hate it?
What's your favorite drugstore mascara that provides both length and volume?
Do share!!

  2. Ooh this looks great on you! I tried this before and I loved it... definitely one of the best drugstore mascaras out there. Cute blog, by the way!

  3. I reviewed this mascara too! :D It has grown on me a little more since I've reviewed definitely lengthens, but I find that the mascara gets clumpy really quickly in the tube :(

  4. I love the mascara's effect on your lashes! I stopped using Maybelline's waterproof mascara though, they tug and break my lashes when I use them. :-( But I'm so glad that you enjoy this product! <3
