Big, Fake…Lashes – Maybelline Falsies

August 31, 2010

By Melissa Stephans

Am I the only person in Los Angeles without fake breasts?  Possibly.

At times–usually during a night on the town–I notice the hoards of artificially enhanced women around me and begin to feel like a 12-year-old girl waiting to grow.  I  try to compensate in other ways–by having better style, makeup, and conversation than your average Angeleno.  Though I’ve fought the good fight, I’m officially worn out and have decided to get Falsies…

Maybelline Falsies Mascara

As in, Maybelline Falsies.  Every woman should know her assets and one of mine is my eyes.  Playing up the eyes is a great way to feel feminine, so I spent the last few days experimenting with mascaras.  I tried various brands, but the one mascara that rose above all others was Maybelline’s Falsies.

Here’s why:  The formula provides volume without being goopy or fiberous.  The brush separates lashes evenly, while helping extend the length of each lash.  The mascara dries on lashes with a slight stiffness, but is not noticeable unless you touch your eyes–and most of us don’t walk around stroking our lashes.  My favorite quality about this product is that it’s able to stay on lashes and not run or smear…and it’s not even waterproof!

Since using Falsies, six people have commented on my lashes and how pretty and “fake” they look.  I guess that means I’m now just another impossibly beautiful Barbie-like creature roaming the city.  Okay, maybe not–but I have some damn good lashes to carry me through the day.

Maybelline The Falsies Volum’Express Mascara is available at amazon.com for $5 (or $8 at drugstores).
