Price: Around P350.00++
Bought From: Maybelline PCX, Powerplant Mall
Other Locations: Available in all leading supermarkets, drugstores, and malls
I got pretty excited when I received news that finally, Maybelline's The Falsies has hit our malls. It is one of my favorite mascaras from the brand so naturally, I immediately rushed to a nearby mall to
check it out buy a tube.
When I got to a Maybelline counter, I was quite shocked to see that it's definitely NOT the Falsies Mascara I used to know. Hmmm..Was it revamped? Or is this an Asian version of the original Falsies?
The last statement is true for this product-it is indeed the Asian counterpart of Falsies. Well, I bought it anyway just to see if it's as good as the original version.
Is it yay or nay? Click READ MORE and find out!
MAYBELLINE THE FALSIES MASCARA IN DETAIL
Here's the wand: It's traditional, but has a modern curved shape-it just catches all my lashes in one go, and is almost similar to the wand of the original Falsies. But here's the striking part-this version has hair fibers, and the original one doesn't. Its texture is also more wet, runny, and glossy, but it dries up rather quickly than the latter.
MAYBELLINE THE FALSIES IN ACTION
Formula is waterproof, and it doesn't flake during wear. The hair fibers may seem a little chunky, but they go on invisibly on the lashes. I've also noticed that apart from its lengthening prowess, the hair fibers can make lashes look a little thicker too! It can also hold curls all day, unlike the original version.
Oh! Silly me, I keep on comparing it with the original version, but I just realized I haven't shown you a photo of it. So here it is:
In terms of cuteness, I like the original packaging better. :D By the way, if you're interested, here's the REVIEW too.
Left: The Falsies Asian Version
Right: The Falsies Original Version
Comparing the Asian and Original versions: Bottomline, both versions are good at lengthening and volumizing, but there are a few differences between the two: The Asian version yields a soft, full, and more natural- looking effect, while the original version truly mimics the look of false eyelashes. So what should you get? It depends on what you want: If you want normal and natural- looking volume, go for the Asian version. If you want something that gives your lashes a cleaner, more defined shape and dramatic volume, go for the original version.
I prefer the original one better because first love never dies (lol!) and personally, I'm not so much into hairy mascaras (lol again!)-- I don't hate them and I don't love them either-let's just say I'm okay with them. :)
Bias aside, I think the Asian version of Falsies is quite good because it's the cheapest fiber- infused mascara I've encountered, and its overall quality is very good so it's a YAY after all. :)
