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?
