Maybelline The Mega Plush vs.The Falsies

Sunday, September 30, 2012

A few weeks ago I went to CVS and they had a BOGO 50% off on Maybelline products... After reading my friend Jessica's review on her blog Love for Lacquer about the Falsies I was intrigued and wanted to give it a try. With the BOGO I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try both of these products out.

Here's what Maybelline says about the Mega Plush...

Product Details
Why You'll Love It
Now, mega volume goes mega plush.
• Our first gel-mousse mascara with 40% less hard waxes for massive volume with a supple touch
• Extra-soft, patented Flexor Brush caresses lashes
• Lashes never brittle or flaky
• Available in washable and waterproof formulas
For best results, apply the Flexor Brush against the lashes and sweep from root to tip until a full plush look is achieved. Do not let dry between coats. Removes easily with soap and water or Expert Eyes® 100% Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover.


Here's what they say about the Falsies

Product Details

Why You'll Love It

False lash glam, instantly!
• Patented Spoon Brush fans out lashes from corner-to-corner, while our Pro-Keratin formula instantly builds volume without clumping
• Unique flexible wand helps to lift and separate lashes to provide the look of 300% more visible, fuller lashes, no gaps from any angle
• Contact lens safe and ophthalmologist-tested
• Washable, also available in Waterproof formula
For Best Results Hold brush with spoon side upwards against lashes and sweep from root to tip. Repeat until desired look is achieved. Do not let dry between coats. Removes easily with soap and water or Expert Eyes® 100% Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover.


I have to say that after trying both of these mascaras I am NOT a fan of The Mega Plush at all. I hate the flexor brush. I feel like it makes the application much harder/more complex. I accomplished the same results with one coat of the Falsies as I did when I applied three coats of the Mega Plush. I also found the Mega Plush very clumpy on me.

Overall my grade for the Mega Plush is a C-

On the other hand I really LOVED the Falsies. I think it does exactly what the product details says ( False lash glam instantly). It's great for me because my natural lashes are itty bitty! It applies smoothly and I would put it up against a high end mascara any day of the week.

My grade for the Falsies is an A

What is your favorite mascara? Have you tried either of these yet?

  1. ive tried both! I like both too, but Falsies is my fave. Plush seems to flake off and disappear halfway through the day
