Frugal Friday - Maybelline Falsies Mascara - Review

Welcome to Frugal Friday!  Today I'm discussing the Maybelline Volum' Express The Falsies Mascara.  This mascara is super affordable at $6.99 depending on the store.


This mascara contains a natural bristle wand that is slightly curved to help lift and separate lashes.  Maybelline says that the brush and formula combined will "build 8x more volume without clumping to complete the false lash look".


I've been using this mascara for the past month in the shade Blackest Black.  I couldn't find a waterproof version at any of my stores or I would have purchased that instead.  For a daytime look, I apply 1 or 2 coats depending on how the first coat went on.

Two coats of this mascara is enough for me for daytime.  My lashes are plenty dark and voluminous without getting clumpy.



If I were to wear this mascara for an evening out, three coats is definitely necessary.  It does get slightly clumpy and spidery but it's also dark and dramatic so I guess it's a tradeoff.

Maybelline Falsies Mascara 3 coats

Maybelline Volum Express The Falsies is a very good mascara.  It lengthens and barely clumps, even with 3 coats.  That said, this is another drugstore mascara that I will be using for daytime looks.  I have much better, more dramatic mascaras to wear for evening looks.  So far I have not found a drugstore mascara that is good enough for a night look.  I hope to come across one soon in my Frugal Friday research!

Have you tried this mascara?  What do you think?

  1. I see you changed the name of your blog? It confused me a little, lol! This mascara looks great but I would need it also in waterproof- the swim season almost begins in Florida haha! I can handle clumpy and spidery- as long as it is dramatic, thanks for sharing! XOXO, Sissi

    1. Yup, I changed my name sorry for the confusion! I wonder if it comes in waterproof, I've been looking and haven't found it yet. Thanks for visiting!

  2. I picked this up when it first came out, & I was obsessed with it! After I had it for a while, it didn't work as well for me, but I'm pretty sure that's only because it was old & I needed a new one. Haven't purchased it again since then, but I think next time I run out of mascara I'll pick up this one. Thanks for sharing, love the Frugal Friday series!

    1. Hm, I've had it open for about 2 months now and haven't notice it drying out yet. But I also only actually used it for 2 weeks of that time so that's probably why. Def. try it again, I really like it!

  5. This has just never the best luck with this mascara. I've tried it off and on; finally, I gave up on it. There are much better mascaras out there for me. Great thorough review my dear.

    1. That stinks this didn't work out for you. But yeah it really seems like drugstore mascaras are super hit or miss for most of us. So weird!

  6. This looks like a great mascara, I love how it doesn't clump even after 3 coats! I haven't used a drugstore mascara in quite a while. The last drugstore one that I used was the CoverGirl Clump Crusher which I tossed because it just wasn't working out for me. So glad you found this one to use! Hope you can find a waterproof one soon! xx

    1. Yeah this was a decent mascara for me. I do have Clump Crusher but haven't tried it yet, that's a bummer it didn't work out for you though. Thanks for visiting!
