Review: Maybelline Falsies Big Eyes Volum' Express Mascara

Hello loves!  For someone with such small eyes and such short lashes that grow straight down, mascaras are my best friend followed by fake lashes but I don't wear them in public just during very special event. And believe me, finding the right mascara that could provide me the highest satisfaction is rather difficult considering the budget that I have put aside for mascaras; not more than RM50! could only get me so far. But for years now, I have always have my faith in Maybelline's mascaras. I have tried most of them and one of them has become my favourite!

Newest mascara by Maybelline; The Falsies Big Eyes Volum' Express! just hit our stores. What's cool about it is that it's the first mascara here by Maybelline that's dual ended. No need to bring 2 mascaras specifically for your lower and upper lashes anywhere you go like I always do LOL. 

I'm going to compare the mascara with its older sister, The Falsies Volum' Express. The original one. And yes, you guessed it! This is my favourite one. Used to love the Cat Eyes one but it doesn't seem impressive now after I have tried The Falsies. Now let the showdown begins!

Starting with the wands, The Falsies Big Eyes has two wands. The upper wand is medium-sized and doesn't have any significant shape compared to The Falsies which has a big and curvy wand but it's difficult to coat the lower lashes because of the wand and I often accidentally smudges my lower eyes because of the big wand. Lucky for us with such short lashes, The Falsies Big Eyes lower wand is a perfect fit for us! 

Guess which eye has The Falsies Big Eyes
The correct answer would be RIGHT! Why? If you look closely, you can see that the right eye has more volume and length and it makes them thicker as if you have many lashes. But The Falsies (left) does separates the lashes better and curls up the lashes compared to The Falsies Big Eyes. My lower lashes are much longer and blacker and with the lower wand, I can coat the outer lashes at ease without smudging it underneath unlike The Falsies, I accidentally smudged it a bit underneath there. Totally tak sengaja but it happens a lot :o  

The Falsies Big Eyes gives more volume and length. Plus, the lower wand gives me the illusion of having looong lower lashes - something I have always wanted. The formulation of The Falsies Big Eyes is a bit dry takut kering cepat but in a way, it does help in reducing the "accidental" smudge underneath the eyes. It gives the blackest tint to your lashes and it makes them look fat. Two-three coats is enough otherwise it will look clumpy. Doesn't separate the lashes well enough and doesn't curl it up (curler is a must!) unlike The Falsies

Overall: I really love The Falsies that's like my ultimate favourite but I got to give it to The Falsies Big Eyes for its lower wand! For the upper lash I would seriously combine them both together for maximum curl, length, volume and blackest tint. But it's still a great mascara on its own just don't forget to curl them first and avoid coating too much. But I really love how my lower lashes look when wearing them and I would recommend those who struggles in finding the right mascara for the lower lashes to try this. 
Disclaimer: Item was sent for reviewing purpose but all opinions were my own and 100% honest. I mean, I seriously loveeeeee the lower wand!
