Happy New Year!  Hope everyone had a wonderful time ringing in 2011!

I don't know wear mascara on a regular basis, but one thing I love about mascara is how much it can open up your eyes and intensify your look almost instantly.  I tried false eyelashes for New Year's (upcoming post), but because it took me a little while to get the hang of it (a couple re-dos :)).  It was fun to wear, and I do plan on perfecting the process.  In the meantime, while shopping at Ulta for the false lashes, I thought it would be wise to have a backup plan.  That's where Maybelline Volum Express Falsies comes in.  Luckily, on New Year's Eve, the false lashes application worked out, so I didn't use it then.

I've been the Falsies for almost a week now on a daily basis, since I don't have the time in the morning to spend putting on the false lashes.  For an everyday intensity of false lashes, I love Falsies!  I really does add volume to my very thin lashes.  Also, it doesn't clump!  It's spoon brush and flexible wand allows you to start the application closer to the root without poking your eye out.  And it's the keratin fiber formula that adds the volume/more lashes to your own lashes.  There you go, instant false lashes.  I've always loved Maybelline's great lash line, but their falsies line is becoming another favorite.  You can't beat the price either!

I think one or two coats is great for an everyday look.  An extra coat or two you'll get a more intensified look.

Don't forget to use a good eyelash curler!

I'll post some before and after pics later :)
