Maybelline The Falsies Mascara Review

Guest Post by Sktribal

When it comes to mascara i love my Maybelline  Collosal Mascara, it is the only mascara i have found effective from all the ones iv tried ! But on a recent visit to the Maybelline counter i picked up the Maybelline Falsies mascara and this is what i thought about it :

My view about Maybelline Falsies Mascara:

ü  Builds volume and length in just one coat.

ü  The curved brush helps curl the lashes a bit.

ü  Good for days when you don’t have time to apply many coats.

ü  Good for extremely dark and smoky eye makeup where even clumped lashes may look okay.

ü  Good for thin, sparse lashes.

L  Clumps lashes in just one coat.

L  If you apply more than one or two full coats, you’ll only have five really thick lashes. Doesn’t separate lashes at all.

L  The brush picks up way too much product and you have to scrape off the excess before each use.

L  Lashes look really bad unless you apply an extremely controlled, thin coat. Even then you won’t get a separated lash effect.

L  More expensive than the Colossal


My view about Maybelline Collosal Mascara:

ü  Doesn’t clump unless you apply a million coats

ü  Separates the lashes while adding length and volume.

ü  You can build up the volume and thickness depending on the look you’re going for.

ü  The brush picks up just enough product.

ü  Cheaper than the Falsies mascara

ü  Good for all kinds of lashes- thick, thin, long, short.

L  Can get a little flaky when it has been used for a long time.

Overall, I still prefer my Colossal to Falsies. You can achieve a reasonably fanned out look with the Falsies but it requires a lot of time and effort which is just not worth the price you pay. The Colossal is really good in all aspects, especially when the formula thickens up a bit.


Rating: B

Price: Rs 425

Overall Recommendation:I didnt really love the Falsies mascara. It clumps your lashes and makes you look like you only have 5 lashes. The brush picks up too much product and it’s a pain to keep scraping off the excess. For the price we pay, I expected much better.  So for me its Maybelline Colossal anyday!

Manu November 14, 2012 at 6:35 pm

Haha! Yes, the Colossal is much better imo :)

Thanks for the nice review, thought of buying but now I wont…

You’re welcome :)

exactly, saved some bucks!


Manu November 14, 2012 at 6:49 pm

I’ve tried using Falsies with Colossal and that gives good results but ya, on its own the Falsies isn’t too great :(


GK November 14, 2012 at 5:28 pm

o thanks so much.. i was considering buying this one..


Manu November 14, 2012 at 5:56 pm

You’re welcome, GK :)

I have bee using bourjois mascara right now, but i think i may go back to Colassal.
Nice review.


Manu November 14, 2012 at 6:53 pm

Yup, Colossal is the best I’ve tried :)


coralcrue November 14, 2012 at 6:44 pm

will stick to colossal :)


Manu November 14, 2012 at 6:50 pm

Ya, Colossal is definitely better than the Falsies :)


Vish November 14, 2012 at 7:40 pm

clr picture of the mascara

seems nt wrth it at al


Manu November 14, 2012 at 8:46 pm

It’s a pretty okay mascara not horribly bad but if you’ve used the Colossal, you’ll see a dramatic difference. The Colossal is way better :)


Preetha November 14, 2012 at 7:51 pm

thats a fab review..i lov colossal too


Manu November 14, 2012 at 8:45 pm

Thanks, Preetha :)


Shikha November 14, 2012 at 7:55 pm

Falsies Mascara: I assumed it means that it make your lashes look heavy, not that they will clump and make eye heavy literally


Manu November 14, 2012 at 8:44 pm

The Falsies does clump lashes together. If you have lots of lashes it will look okay but doesn’t give a beautiful fanned out look like the Colossal :)


Aya November 14, 2012 at 8:33 pm

I haven’t tried Colossal yet but I am using The Falsies now. It clumps my lashes after just 1 full coat. But I do like the length and thickness it gives my lashes (minus the clumpiness). My lashes are the shortest and thinnest ever. Nice comparison! :)


Sukanya November 14, 2012 at 9:11 pm

i don’t think i wanna spend much on mascara..they all dry up anyway ! I would prefer collosal/ hypercurl anyday !


Manu November 14, 2012 at 9:17 pm

Exactly, it’s a little too expensive for an okay mascara!


Niesha November 15, 2012 at 12:02 am

I am happy with my colossal and hypercurl one.:)
BTW very nice comparative post. <3


Manu November 15, 2012 at 9:20 am

Thanks, Niesha :)


CSP Ballal November 15, 2012 at 12:03 am

Manu November 15, 2012 at 11:46 am

Ya, the Colossal is the best I’ve tried :)


Kassia November 15, 2012 at 1:04 pm

Perfect, thanks so much for this review! I’d been thinking about getting the Falsies but already had Colossal and wasn’t sure if I should get it or not. I think I’ll save my money for the meantime. ;)


Manu November 15, 2012 at 3:04 pm

Ya, Colossal is much better in my opinion :)


Embellished November 15, 2012 at 3:49 pm

Haha. I was totally going to get this next. I don’t think I should now. :P


Manu November 15, 2012 at 6:13 pm

Get the Colossal..I find it way better :)


Richa Saxena November 15, 2012 at 8:01 pm

Great review…You really helped me saving 400 bux…I will probably be spending that on a OPI now..:)


Manu November 15, 2012 at 9:03 pm

OPI is awesome :)


Sweet&Bitter November 15, 2012 at 9:00 pm

5 lashes!!! LOL


Tara A November 16, 2012 at 6:45 pm

I have tried Colossal and it worked really well for me!


Jasmine November 19, 2012 at 12:10 am

Hey have u guys tried maybelline “one-by-one” mascara? It’s the best ever! Get your hands on this one and trust me you will never look for another Mascara ever again! It separates, coats and curls at the same time… You get an amazing length and volume with this… But for a lashes obsessive person like me… I curl them using a curler to get that Kim karsashian look…. Hope u find it useful…. Enjoy!


Manu November 19, 2012 at 1:00 pm

The one by one isn’t available in India yet,Jasmine :(


Tara A November 19, 2012 at 9:37 am

haven’ hrd of the product yet jasmine. will definitely give it a try.


Tara A November 19, 2012 at 9:40 am

does it give more volume than colossal mascara?


Manu November 19, 2012 at 12:59 pm

Yes, but it also clumps a lot :(
