Mascara Time: Maybelline Volum' Express Falsies Flared

Maybelline Volum' Express Falsies Flared is the newest mascara from Maybelline to hit the shelves here in New Zealand.
I was lucky enough to be sent one for review, so have been using it religiously for about 2 weeks now.

The patented spoon curler brush is designed to fan out the lashes from corner-to-corner and the Pro-Keratin formula is supposed to provide instant volume without clumping.
But does it work?

After using the Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara for so long, I found the formula on this to be extremely dry. I also found that it didn't really hold a curl that well either, and my eyelashes tended to droop a little by the end of the day.

The brush itself was quite good at getting all the individual eyelashes, and seperated them quite nicely without too much clumping - but again I didn't find it to be very helpful at actually curling the lashes. Curling is essential for me, so this was a bit disappointing.

Overall, I didn't think this was a bad mascara, but probably wouldn't repurchase it.
Thanks for viewing!
