At any given time, I have about 5 mascaras in rotation. So it will come as no surprise to you that I have yet another mascara to review for you guys today! Meet Seventeen Falsifeye HD Mascara*, £6.99 with a high definition, lash-lengthening wonder wand.
The wand is a plastic one and has quite a unique shape. It has shorter bristles on two sides and longer on the other two sides. See the images below, I've tried to capture the difference in bristles. This helps to create maximum impact lashes with volume and definition. The shorter bristles define the hard to reach lashes whilst the longer bristles really define and lengthen. This was intriguing as it’s really difficult to find mascaras that both define and volumise especially at affordable price points.
I found this easy to apply. The formula wasn’t clumpy or thick and coated my lashes evenly. I have to say I didn’t find this particularly volumising the first time I used it with just one coat. However after 3 coats there was some volume. What I really liked about this mascara is the definition it gave my lashes. It defined each and every one of my lashes. I think 1-2 coats would be perfect for a no-makeup makeup look, as it would give the definition without too much volume. The good thing is that it’s buildable. As the formula isn’t clumpy, it allows you to build a few layers of mascara on your lashes and get volume.

My only little issue with the mascara is the face that it smudges quite badly when applied to the lower lashes. I looked like I had cried and smudged my mascara by lunchtime! Top lashes were fins, just the bottom lashes – be warned.
For the price this is a decent enough mascara. There are other highstreet/drugstore brands that charges £12ish for similar claims, and Seventeen does have offers on most times which would take the price down. If you’re looking for real definition of your lashes – give this a try!
