I’m obsessed with lashes. No, really. I think there’s nothing better than a set of thick, long eyelashes. So I finally picked up Maybelline’s Volum’ Express Falsies. At only $7.79, it fit right in my budget. The product is said to “instantly build 8x more volume without clumping” and “provide the look of 300% more lashes.” With such lofty claims, I had to test this out and see if it helped my sparse lashes.

{the handle was pretty thick and the flexible wand may make application a bit tricky if you don’t have a steady hand}

{see the difference?}

The mascara achieved exactly what I was looking for: full, thick, dark lashes without any clumping. Volum’ Express Falsies is a few bucks more than my trusty Kiss New York Protein Lash Treatment Curler, but it’s more than worth it.
