So, with that said I was pleased to see that Boot’s brand 17 had gone for a standard tube, a stationary single wand and all round good formula for their latest offering.
Priced at £6.49 Falsifeye sits at the lower end of the high street mascaras and has to be one of the cheapest I have ever bought. I would never usually go for a 17 mascara but the quirky name and bright packaging stood out among the boring black tubes and clichéd names so I thought ‘why not’.
My usual weapon of choice is Maxfactor False Lash Effect (£10.99) so I was pleased to discover a large/fat brush (though this one is softer with bristles) and relatively similar overall effect. After two coats my lashes were looking considerably thicker and lengthened with a good amount of volume. The huge brush really allows you to get right into the roots and lash line, though I do have to keep a cotton bud at the ready to tidy up my eyelids.
In terms of longevity Falsifeye seemed to fair quite well. Some cheaper mascaras can be extremely drying, flaking and crumbling after just a few hours of wear. Though Falsifeye didn’t last quite as long as Maxfactors False Lash Effect and did produce some fallout towards the end of the day, generally I was impressed with it’s staying power considering the low price.
Overall I am really impressed with the quality of this product and would recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable lengthening and volumising mascara for the summer.
Falsifeye by 17 is priced at £6.49 and is available at Boots.
