MUST HAVE: Physicians Formula FakeOut Mascara Review

Mascara is one of those makeup items that women (and some men) just can't live without. We all want to look like we have naturally full, long lashes without having to wear false lashes. Or, perhaps you like wearing false lashes and that's cool too. After hearing other bloggers talk about this mascara, I was super stoked to see it in my local Wal-Mart, on sale might I add. I picked up a 2 pack for something ridiculous like $8 bucks when just ONE is, I think, around $17. Quite the deal. A deal means nothing if the product doesn't live up to the hype and promises made on the package.


Description:
  • 100% Natural False Lash Effect!
  • 100% natural origin lash extension fibers for the full-on fringe of false lashes without irritation.*
  • Innovative formula amplifies lash volume, length & curl.
  • 24 hr wear.
  • 100% Free of Harsh Chemicals, Synthetic Preservatives, Parabens, Synthetic Fragrances & Colors, Cruelty Free, GMO's (Genetically Modified Organisms
* Based on a panel of women using Organic Wear® 100% Natural Origin FakeOut™ Mascara.

Hi, I'm addicted! From my findings, basically watching YT videos, reading blogs and my own personal experiences, most of the other PF mascaras are known to transfer, smudge, and flake. This one doesn't! Well, not entirely. At the end of a long day I can sometimes find a few flakes, but I feel that's pretty normal with any mascara. My lashes are long, they touch, it's normal to me. Does it wear for 24 hours? I've never tried, but it does last at least 12. Does it create a natural false lash effect? Not sure because, like I mentioned (not bragging), my lashes are already long. It does enhance my natural lashes, making them darker and appear slightly fuller. This mascara doesn't irritate my eyes or cause styes, which has happened with other natural mascaras in the past. I adore that this product is widely available, I don't have to travel to different health food stores or purchase online. The packaging is super cute, and I don't find the leaf handle uncomfortable to hold. What I do find, at times, uncomfortable is the massive wand. It's super massive, and the bristles are super short, which can be such a pain sometimes. Either way, I'm in love with this mascara. Because of that, you should go buy it :P. It will be a definite repurchase for moi!

Retails for approx. $17 CAN and can be found in most drugstores and grocery stores.

Have you tried this mascara yet?



no mascara

with mascara (top lashes only)- K maybe not a major difference but they are slightly darker and a tad fuller.  When I apply several layers, for a night out, people ask if I'm wearing false lashes.

  5. I'm on my 1st tube of this as well. As a new convert to the natural/organic makeup world I don't have anything to compare it to, but I really do like it. For me no way would it last 24 hours. At the end of the day, when it's time to take off my makeup it is showing some signs of needing to be removed. As for price in the USA it can't be beat vs. other natural mascara brands. I'm not a big Wal-mart shopper, but I might have to see if I can find that 2-pack ;)

  7. You weren't kidding when you wrote your lashes were long! How I envy you!

    I hear many organic gurus and bloggers rave about this mascara. Maybe it's time to make a trip to my local CVS?

  9. I wanted to like this one so much but for some reason it kept ending up underneath my eyes before the day was through. I am not sure if the one in the green tube is better or worse for transferring. It does look so nice on though.

    1. Oh no! Do you apply it to your lower lashes too? I find it transfers when I apply it on my lower lashes. The green one is worse (for me) in terms of transfer, but let me know if yoou try it and how it works for my. My friend adores the green one and bought like 7 tubes when it went on sale lol xo

  10. Jeeze, why don't you be a little more modest about your lashes?? :P

    Seriously, though, you have amazing lashes!!

    I have this, in the US there is a rebate offer with it so you can get it for free. I think its pretty volumizing, more so than the other ones, but not very lengthening. The longevity is about the same as the other varieties. Still really like it though.

  11. Haha sorry, I tried!

    Thank you :)

    Wow, free? Lucky. Are you comparing longevity to other PF mascaras or natural mascaras in general? If it's PF mascaras, it's kinda crazy how things last/work differently on each individual. Xo

  12. Hm, why do you need mascara again?
    I am curious about this one, but not enough to pay for shipping to UK :)

  14. Nicole - how does this mascara rate on the "green and natural" scale? I'm not an expert on all the ingredients so your insight would be helpful!

    1. Hey Sarah! I'd say the PF organic wear mascaras rate high on the green and natural scale. They surprisingly have great ingredients for being sold in drugstores (aka walmart, rexall, rtc) xo

Thanks for the comment/feedback!
