My Review of Maybelline The Falsies Surreal Extensions Mascara
This is a really nice mascara to use and it is easy to layer and build to get the look you want.
It gives the lashes a nice fluffy volumised and extended look, and I think just one coats looks really pretty for day time. It also looks great with three coats built up, which to be fair, not all mascaras can take.
Three coats gives lots of length and volume without any real clumping or heaviness and it feels comfortable on the lashes.
The day I did a long test on it, the formula lasted really well, however, there was a tiny bit of transfer under my eyes as I was testing a new tinted moisturiser that was quite emollient and I didn’t set it.
I think this is a lovely mascara and definitely up to Maybelline’s high standards when it comes to lashes. I don’t think it beats my Sky High, which is up there in my all time favourites, but it comes pretty close.
