Maybelline Volum' Express The Falsies Big Eyes Waterproof Mascara Review

I Bought This

When I go without mascara, I feel like I look like a male construction worker. Or that my eyes are really, really small. And ever since my Dolly Wink Long mascara ran out, I have been using a couple of mascaras I had lying around, but none of them were really making me feel (at least) like a female construction worker. So one day, when I was perusing the aisles of Walgreens (that darn money sinkhole), I happened to notice that all the Maybelline makeup was BOGO 1/2 off. I don't know about you, but for me Maybelline has been pretty solid in the mascara department and I decided to get not one, but two new mascaras. How could I not, they were BOGO 1/2 off after all (darn marketing tricks).

This is one of them, an intriguing little number from Maybelline, called Volum' Express The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara in Very Black.

Dual Brush Big Eyes Mascara

Big Eyes Maybelline Mascara Lashes

From Maybelline.com:

Revolutionary dual-ended Mascara for 360° all around Lash Glam
Two brushes specifically designed for top and bottom lashes
Special quick-dry formula holds lashes in place



Now get bigger, wide-open eyes with 360 degrees of lash glam volume! The Upper Brush pushes lashes over the top while the lower Micro-Brush grabs every tiny bottom lash for a full circle effect.


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 and water or with Maybelline® Clean Express!® Classic Eye Makeup Remover.

^^Removes with soap and water.....??? Is anyone out there actually washing their eyes with soap??? Please tell me no. I would use an oil based cleanser/makeup remover with a cotton pad to remove waterproof mascara.

The Falsies Big Eyes Dual Brush Lashes

The dual brush is cool, but not really for those times when you're in a hurry and just want to put on a few swipes of mascara quickly. The lower lash brush is perfect for catching the small lashes and the ones at your inner corners. I really like the way this mascara makes my lashes look for about the first hour or so, then it starts drooping a bit, but they still look full and separated. One thing I hate is removing it and then the next day still getting panda eyes when I wake up... that's the problem with most waterproof mascaras though, they don't remove easily.  I think I may keep this and use the lower lash brush for those little tiny lashes. I like it for now but I think I just need to buy a new tube of the Dolly Wink Long mascara, or maybe try Fiberwig mascara, since they are pretty much everything I want as well as being water resistant and come off beautifully with warm water. Currently I haven't found a Western brand mascara that has all the attributes of an Asian mascara, please let me know if you have!


  1. lol at the construction worker. guuurrrrrl you couldn't be more wrong about that! ;)
    I have a love/hate relationship with this mascara too. I love the bottom brush. The top brush is ok, but the mascara itself got clumpy really quickly. And it is a bear to remove!

  2. Yep, I definitely think the bottom brush is the best thing about this mascara! And I just need a hard hat to complete my no mascara construction worker look :p

  3. Yowzah, Ishah! Your eyes look fabulous with this mascara. And I ditto Amber...laughing at the construction worker meme, and thinking of how much I adore your eyes. :) Gorgeous, dahlink!
