New jazz from Maybelline that wasn’t supposed to be out quite yet…but that IS.  Ballroom dancers rejoice – less need to wear the falsies (which I couldn’t STAND!)

The Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara promises to sweep your flutter to the side, giving a lifted, winged effect – how pinup and fabulous!

Maybelline’s Brow Precise Fiber Volumizer is hopping on the heels of the brow building trend, not only adding color, but filling out sparse areas with its fiber-infused gel formula.

MAC x Susanne Bartsch Collection

I have to be honest here…I had NO idea who this was!  But I LOVE MAC and I love their ever-interesting collaborations. After having read the below, it made perfect sense that I didn’t know who this was – I’m admittedly far out of reach of the celebrity scene.

“Since the 1980s, famed nightlife icon Susanne Bartsch has been known for her elaborate, outlandish and extraordinary fêtes for designers, celebrities and partygoers alike. Three decades later, her events continue to attract New York’s beautiful, strange and eccentric. Now, a collaboration that harnesses the unique world of Bartsch into two fantastical false lashes.”

Falsies and extensions have DEFINITELY picked up steam over the last decade – certainly they were out there but having been a competitive Ballroom dancer for many years during the last decade…it’s fair to say they were not as easy to come by in stores!

There is nothing really mild-mannered about these – those who do buy them are likely among the fearless stand-out types (which doesn’t mean if you aren’t that way, there is anything wrong with that!  I’m not sure I could manage these even ON the Ballroom floor where false lashes are so common they are almost a pre-req!)  Given who these are in collaboration with, though, I’d expect nothing less!

The two limited edition lashes are as follows:

MAC Curlicue Lash – $75.00: Swirling and “girly” retro lashes. 

MAC On Top Lash  – $75.00: “Wispy waterfall”-look lashes.

Maybelline Falsies Pushup

Huh…so falsies AND a pushup!?  She must be a hot little number!

Thanks to hello_vana for spotting this, and to Nouveaucheap for additional comments and images (also hello_vana’s – take a look because she snagged and tried it out!)

The package says that the brush is designed to “scoop and lift” the lashes, which (I agree with nouveaucheap) it does appear to do.  The formula is also “creamy and plumping” that creates and holds lash volume.  

I feel like this is sort of a mass version of Benefit Roller Lash?  I haven’t seen it in store as yet, but many of the Fall products are trickling in (Harmon often has things earlier than CVSs and Walgreens and the like – at least around here.)  So, if you are a mascara fan, keep your eyes open for this one!
