Falsies Mascara, does it give you that false eyelash look?

Maybelline Falsies Mascara
Advantages: Easy to get off.
Disadvantages: Doesn't create the same look as false eyelashes do and also clumps eyelashes together.
The most important make up to me in my make up bag is certainly Mascara! So the amount of different mascaras i have tried out is a bit crazy. I was shopping in boots and i needed some new mascara and there was a 3 for 2 offer on all make up across the store. I could not resist! This was a perfect deal for me. Also it appealed to me as i love to wear false eyelashes on a night out and this mascara claims to give the false eyelash look so i thought i would give it a go.
Usually the mascara retails at £8.19 in Boots, however it also is sold in shops such as Superdrug, Asda and Tesco and prices may vary. I personally think that £8.19 is a good price for a mascara if it is a good one. The mascara comes in colours Black noir and Black Drama, i chose to buy Black drama as i love to have really dark intense eyes.
The mascara comes in a dark purple container, it is quite average sized and is perfect to fit into your handbag! The bottle has a classy pattern around the the lid and black bold writing saying the name of the mascara 'the falsies volum' express' The bottle is pretty and girly and i would certainly not be embarassed to get this out of my handbag. Also on the back of the mascara it has an image of the brush showing you which way too use it 'use spoon brush with this side against lashes' I suppose this could be very helpful to someone who may not know this. The mascara is a size of 8,2ml. The brush is a curved shape a bit like a spoon. I always go for mascaras with this type of brush as i believe they work the best and help curl my eyelashes up.
Thank you for reading my review and i hope it has helped you out!
How is the mascara?
When i first started to use this mascara i found thatit was very wet and often left my eyelashes wet and thin which made me look like i had been crying. So i was very disapointed with it at first. However as i used the mascara more and more it seemed to get better. The mascara become thicker and it made my eyelashes look thicker and they seemed to have a lot more volume than they did when i first used it and it was thin and wet. Also i noticed my eyelashes curled up a lot better as the mascara got a bit thicker. Sometimes this caused my eyelashes to clump together which is a huge disadvantage. I had no problems with the mascara flaking off on to my face which was a great advantage of this mascara as in the past i have had a few mascaras that have done that.
Does the mascara give me the 'fake eyelash look' like on the advert?
No not at all. I often wear fake eyelashes to make my eyes really intense. I also use them because my eyelashes are quite short, which i hate. But this mascara certainly doesnt add length or make my eyelashes look perfect so i still have to use false eyelashes for a night out. As this mascara would certainly not give the same effects. But I personally believe no mascara will ever be able to have the 'falsies' look.
Getting the mascara off..
I pile mascara on, but i have found that this mascara is really easy to get off with facial wipes. I have had no problems with getting it off easily and quickly.
I personally believe this mascara is quite a good. However i believe that Maybelline have been silly in saying that it will create the 'falsies' look as it certainly doesn't and that is impossible. However this mascara is good for day to day use. Personally when i decide to get a new mascara i think i will probably try out a new one insted of purchasing this mascara again!
Summary: Had better mascaras but i have also had worse
