As you all know I typically use false lashes to enhance my eyes. But fake lashes are, no matter what... fake.

So sometimes when I see girls with super pretty thick and long natural eyelashes, perhaps enhanced with only mascara, I feel so jealous!!

Kim Kardashian is particularly fond of flaunting hers -_- Show off!!

She has said many times that those are her real lashes!!

I also want!! I want to be one of these girls with *ahem* naturally luscious lashes framing my peepers!!

Therefore, sometimes when I'm in the mood I also forgo the stick-on lashes and go for mascara instead!! When that time comes, I'm always hunting for the best mascara to use.

I know a lot of girls don't bother to put too much eye makeup and fake lashes are too much for them. Mascara is also good for occasions like going to the pool or beach because fake lashes won't stay... and let's face it, swimming with fake lashes is just ridiculous.

When it comes to the best mascara, the brand that many people swear by is Maybelline!

After all, Maybelline *IS* the number 1 brand for mascara in Singapore!!

I remember all through my youth I've used Maybelline's mascaras... Anyone remember the one that is neon pink and green? I loved that! :D

Now new to the Maybelline mascara family... Introducing...

The Volum' Express Falsies Mascara!!

People have different needs when it comes to the perfect mascara, some want volume, some want length... for others it is more important that the mascara is smudge-proof because they tear more.

Well, after trying the Falsies mascara, I must say that this new concortion is the all-in-one bombdiggity!!!


It is dream lashes in a bottle!!

Comes with a fanned out brush to catch even your finest little hairs... And look at those lengthening fibres!

Are you ready to see the before and after on me?

100% not photoshopped:



Suddenly my eyes look much more alert than the sleepy and dull specimen on the left...

I only put 2 coats of mascara on and the difference is already so obvious.


I may not have Kim K's Armenian hairy genes but I still look ok with my sparse Chinese lashes thanks to Falsies mascara!! :D

Wish I could transplant my arm hairs on my lash line. LOL

I love how when you close your eyes people can see that there are no fake lashes on... :)

But how mascara looks after you put it on is just the first hurdle...

As the day goes on can it last??

What I love about Falsies mascara is that even in Singapore's ultra humid weather the lashes remain curled instead of drooping after long wear!

Plus it is one of the few mascaras I've used that are truly flake-proof... I super hate it when mascara flakes on my face making it look like I have black spots all over... -_-

Eye itchy and you went to rub it?

Not to worry....

Watching a sad movie and it made you cry??

AND smudge-proof so you never end up looking like a panda!!!!!! I don't know how they did it but Falsies mascara kinda has an almost rubbery feel... Once it is on your lashes and solidified it just won't "melt" again!

Well if you don't believe me watch this video I did with Golden Tan (that's Michelle Chong in one of her funny personas), putting the Maybelline Volum' Express Falsies Mascara through a variety of torture tests!

Had a lot of fun filming this... Thank you Michelle Chong and team for taking care of me, Larry Yeo for my makeup and the Maybelline team for all the niceness that day!! Just FYI if you are wondering, I was about 3 months pregnant when this was filmed. I was still skinny-ish... :X

Can't believe I actually went swimming and inside a sauna with Falsies mascara and it survived!!

Ok one last photo before I go!!

Serious fierce look

If you want to give the Falsies Mascara a try, they are available at Watsons and most places that sell makeup... At an affordable $20.90!

Additionally if you want an even darker and more intense look for Xmas/NYE, you can now try out the limited edition Falsies Everlasting mascara! Available only during this Xmas season so remember to grab, fast!

Of course, remember to Like Maybelline's fb page below to get updates for more good deals!

I've been wanting to try that Maybelline mascara! I think I'll go buy some today.
My eyelashes suck. They're short and light colored. But that's okay. Kim may have long dark eyelashes, but she probably also grows long, dark back hair. haha. I'm glad my body hair is light colored!
Unknown said…
This is my favorite mascara!!! I have oily lids and in the humd summer, mascara only for a few hours. This one is truly waterproof and smudgeproof! love it!!

hmmm, you might want to be careful about going for saunas while you are pregnant though.. it may cause overheating which is dangerous for the fetus. Just thought to let u know that. Take care :)
Kianna said…
I've been using this mascara for months now and it's the best mascara I've ever used so far!
So many people give me compliments on my eyelashes and say how long they are when actually my eyelashes are super short and straight!
BW said…
Of course, it depends on eyelashes but the red one (One by One Volume Express, with rubber / silicone? brush) is even better, the lashes don't stick together like in case of this Falsies, great and cheap, not gonna change it for any other. It's even better combined with Loreal's Double Extension au Sérum RE-ACTIVANT (the white base), with this combo false lashes can go hide (and my natural lashes aren't naturally thick, just saying).
Rebeca Brown said…
You look SOOO PRETTY!!!!

Of course, just the roots, lol.

But your face is gorgeoussssssssssssss!!! Forget those people that talk crap about plastic surgery. You are proof that you can do alot of plastic surgery and significantly improve looks without getting addicted to it or not being able to show normal expression :)

PLease upload your home tour! And can you keep a baby diary? Like month to month like you did before?

Please don't abandon the readers lol. We want to know about your life! THat's why we got hooked on your blog in the first place!

Hi, you look gorgeous preggers. Do consider not going for more sauna sessions ...elevated heat may affect fetal development. You can try googling that. Am sure there's no harm done with one session though.
megan said…
Its so expensive in Singapore! Next time you go to the states you should stock up.
Lauren said…
I have that mascara and mine is not rub-proof, but an amazing mascara anyway. :)

Xiaxue so pretty! Though I miss her blonde hair but I love her pink hair :)

In that picture, did you wear fake lashes ? Or natural lashes ?

Wow, the effect is simply :thumbsup:
▲dear elaine said…
I used to use Maybelline mascaras all the time, but I get so lazy and falsies are so much easier to remove. I haven't tried this one yet but it looks nice!

Kim Kardashian is a fake whore with a fat ass who should keep her mouth shut.

Xiaxue, you're way hotter and everyone loves you more =)! Plus your wedding doesn't cheapen the definition of marriage! <3<3<3
Anna said…
I think you should tweet that you weren't offended by Michelle during the filming of the video or something. I mean, unless you really were. Because there are tons of people bashing Michelle for 'being rude' to you. Like, that obviously wasn't even Michelle being herself; it was 'Golden Tan'. I'm not saying you're a bad person if you don't acknowledge it, but just thought I'd bring it up because you looked pretty amused in the video yourself but everyone is getting their panties in a bunch about it.

Okie, my first thought was: you look better not photoshopped ;p

Not that I don't like your edited pics, I just think you look really pretty in the video ^^

Krizko said…
I've tried this and love it too. BUT!! Not until I've tried the " CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume Blasting Waterproof Mascara" It's currently my new favorite. I live in humid Hawaii and even wore this swimming at the beach- it still stays on! It's amazing. Nice review!
Sarah said…

Lauren said…
The falsies is so iconic these days but I wish they could give some advice on its removal as it is obviously designed not to budge even when you want it to!
Misao said…
Wow, I love your video and pictures Wendy. :) I have This mascara in flared edition. I'm not sure if it comes in flared edition in Singapore, but WOW! It cost like $20.00 in Singapore when the average price in america is only $6.00! I bought mine for $5.98 and I live in America. Anyways, stay Gorgeous.

Misao said…
I really like your video and pictures Wendy.I have the Falsies mascara in Flared edition, I don't know if they have flared edition in Singapore though. I can't believe Falsies mascara is like, $20.00 in Singapore! I bought mine for $5.98 at a drugstore, and the average price for all of the Maybelline Mascaras in the US is around $6.00.
Anyways, stay gorgeous,

Hazel said…
I find that Maybelline Volume Express Plush is actually better then Falsies.
