I am addicted to mascara. My eyelashes are so pale and straight that I feel quite strange leaving the house without it. Also, I just love the look of big, black "foofy" eye lashes, and I don't have the patience yet for falsies. So, I am always looking for the next great mascara that gives me the results I want without draining my wallet or exposing me to tons of toxins.
The Falsies boasts a plump traditional fiber brush with an interesting shape. It is slightly curved, with a flatter side and a wider side.
See what I mean? I like to use the flatter side to deposit more product at the roots of my lashes, and the longer bristles to sweep upwards and create a nice taper to the lash. This is a fiber mascara, so the volumizing is very good, with some lengthening to boot. The fibers don't fall out into my eye, which is always a plus. Unfortunately, at the end of the day I do find a little bit of smudging on my lower lash line if I'm not careful to put some face powder down there to keep it nice.
Here are my bare lashes after being curled.

Fluffy!I give this mascara a 4.9 out of 5 for efficiency, cost effectiveness, toxicity and staying power. This mascara is listed on the Skin Deep database as a 3, which is very good for a drugstore mascara.
That's all for now-have a wonder-filled day!
