Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara Review and Swatches

I’m loving Maybelline Volum’ Express Big Eyes Mascara. I’ve given it a whirl so I could review it for you so the packaging looks a little wonky. Sorry about that.  I didn’t take a picture of it before I tore it open.


It comes in a super convenient double ended tube for those of us who like using different sized wands on the top and bottom lashes.

The left side of the pic is for the top lashes and the right side is for the lower lashes. I love using a small brush for my lower lashes!  Lets take a closer look at each side.

And here is the smaller wand for your lower lashes:

Both of these are washable. You can get the formula in a waterproof format. I personally like to use waterproof mascara on my bottom lashes, because of my allergies, and washable mascara on my top lashes, but you do not get that option. Its one or the other. I think it would be great if they offered the option though. Hint Hint if anyone at Maybelline is reading this.

On to the results. As awesome as the packaging is its not worth anything if it doesn’t work.  This does indeed work!  The proof is in the pudding, or on my lashes, as it were. Here are the before and after pics. Take a look!

And here are my lashes after two coats of the Maybelline Volum’ Express Big Eyes Mascara

I really do like this mascara. It made my eyes open up and look bigger. Be careful if you add more than two coats because it might start to clump on you, just a little.
All in all I like this product and I would repurchase, only next time I’m going for the waterproof version because it did run a bit when my allergies kicked into high gear and my eyes teared up, but I would expect that with any washable mascara.

So, what do you think? Have you tried Maybelline Volum’ Express Big Eyes Mascara?
