Advantages: decent for day to day wear
Disadvantages: doesn't make lashes stand out as much as others of a similar price
I was out shopping with my sister one day and we were browsing the make up in boots. I didn't really need anything to be honest but there was an offer on where by if you bought the boots 17 brand falsifeye mascara you would get a little pot of gel eyeliner free and so I thought I would give it a go despite not really using the 17 brand for anything more than powder to set my foundation.
The mascara did catch my attention on the shelf as it was contained in an all pink tube which along side all the black tubes did stand out. It said on the packaging that the product was new and that it would give a false lash effect for your own lashes. The product name is written in bold black writing along the body of the tube which again really stands out as it works well with the pink.
When you screw off the lid of the mascara you can see a large brush which to be honest just reminds me of the brushes of many years ago, way before all these fancy ones came out with little balls on the end! In all honesty I couldn't care less what the brush looks like as long as it gives me a good finish to my eye make up though. The brush is designed to be big so that it can cover all the lashes from corner to corner to apparently give a false lash effect.
Using the mascara is easy really although the brush does get quite a lot of mascara on it so I do like to wipe off any excess using the top of the tube just to avoid wasting too much and also ended up with matted eye lashes from using too much product. The mascara coats the lashes well and does give them a little extra length and definition but in terms of creating a false eye lash look, well I am sorry but there is no way using this would make me look like I had false lashes on! The mascara does create a nice look which is pretty natural I find and it does tend to last for most of the day. When I work I do not feel the need to top up my mascara anyway and I do tend to use this product for work rather than nights out as I like my lashes to stand out more on a night out than when I am at work. The mascara does work better with two coats I find and will curl the lashes quite nicely for during the day.
Removing the mascara isn't too difficult and I tend to use baby wipes to do this at the end of the day so I am sure if you used a proper make up remover it would be even easier to do.
The mascara comes in two colours which is highlighted by a sticker on the bottom of the tube. I actually picked up brown my mistake not realising that there were two colours but the nice girl at the check out checked did I want brown or black and actually went and swapped it for me. You can pick the product up from boots where it will cost you £6.49 and to be honest I won't be buying it again once mine runs out as I just think there are better ones on the market.
Thank you for reading my review!
