Maybelline the Falsies review

I know this mascara is nothing new and you've probably all heard about it before, I have only recently tried it after I heard one too many people say it was their holy grail mascara. I was walking round tescos on my lunch break when I saw this product and thought "why the hell not". I have very very short downward facing eyelashes that are an absolute pain in the rear so I find it extremely difficult to find a lengthening, volumising mascara that doesn't give me spider leg clumpy eyelashes. I have found two wonderful mascaras that suited me to the ground, one being the Lancome Hypnose doll eyes mascara and the other being Revlon Lash potion in brown which I rave about endlessly. I thought I'd give this a try as I liked the look of the shape of the brush. Here is how I got on...

I was really hoping for good things from this mascara, the formula itself is absolutely fine. The problem that I have is the awkwardly shaped brush. I can do my right eye ok, but when it comes to my left eye I just can't seem to get any length at all. I wiggle from root to tip and use the three different angles on the brush but nothing seems to work!! Plus seeing as there in volume in the name of the mascara, I really didn't see any volumising effects at all as you can see below.

Did anyone else have the same problem with this shape wand or is it just me? I'm not going to let it put me off finishing the tube!
