I think I may have purchased the wrong version of the falsies because I hated this one. The brush is too think and does not have a good curve so it does not separate lashes well, also it is supposed to give you that "flared" effect but the brush is so thick that you cannot fit it on the outer portion of your eye. Also it doesn't hold curls for anything.
If you want a detailed review on this product, this ones for you.
I have to say I'm on the fence with this mascara. I don't know if I love it or hate it.
There are some really good things and some negatives.
First, Good things:
- The brush is great, gets every lash
- The waterproof formula lasts all day, through tears and humidity
- It is buildable
- Its cheap
- Its too dry! It flakes on the second coat :(
But does it give the 'false lash' look? Yes! If paired with a heated lash curler this mascara looks amazing. Apply two coats and then comb through a heated lash curler for amazing, thick long defined, and curled lashes!
I like this formula better than the unflared Falsies. This formula does not clump as much. This does not flake or smudge on me. Holds a curl, gives volume, and lengthens. Price is great too!
Big negative for me. I bought this because I love the original Falsies Waterproof mascara. The formula is not as wet as the original and so I found myself having to put way too many coats on. I have short straight lashes which I curl with my Shu Uemura, with this formula my lashes went straight in about 2 hours.
i liked this better than lash blast..i have short, asian lashes that needs lots of mascara to look visible....i need about 3 coats of this stuff & the thing i liked most about it the most that my lashes do look flare & not chunked together...its not thick and goopy either. Not a fan of the brush tho...
I really love this mascara. I bought the first Falsies when it came out and I wish I could remember what the formula was like. The Flared waterproof is just so shiny and black. My lashes located in the center are annoyingly straighter than the rest of my lashes so I started using a heater lash curler. This mascara was made for it. It doesn't clump and holds a lovely curl. I'm going to repeat myself, but this mascara is just so shiny and inky black and I love it. I am lucky to have long lashes so most mascaras I used look to see how much volume I get. I get very nice volume with this. I concentrate the brush at the base of the lashes, wiggle, then pull up. I really enjoy the shape of the brush too. Fits my eye shape perfectly. I have big eyes though. I will repurchase and they using have this on sale and and BOGOS with coupons. So it can be bought cheaply.
I hate to throw a bad review into the mix.. but.. I hate this mascara. It's honestly the worst mascara I've ever used. I'm talking outta about 15 different types. Or more. It clumps. A lot. And my lashes are thicker on top when I brush this on. Not what I want. It sticks many lashes together, and they are hard to seperate again. On the bottom, this sucks even more.
However, I tend to be very picky about mascara, since I want my eyes to stand out most on my face.
Would NOT recommend.
LOVE this mascara! my former love was the regular Flasies. i never could find it in waterproof though, so thats why i switched to this, and i'm glad i did! this gives more length and volume-- and i think the trick is to apply a 2nd light coat while the 1st coat is still wet.
for years i've avoided waterproof mascaras b/c i didnt want the pain of trying to wash them off. but then i heard that only a waterproof one will only the curl. i'm happy to report that this comes off easily enough with baby oil :) i have yet to try it swimming though.
will re-buy when this tube runs out!
I am in love with the washable but this gave me major problems.
I've had two tubes of it now, this is an updated review.
First of all, this is thick and sticky, if you use more than one coat it will clump a lot. Also, it doesn't give that flared wingy look that the washable does.
But the biggest problem is that it ruins my contact lenses if my eyes tear at all while wearing it. Every time I go outside in this stuff, if my eyes tear at all (happens from cold/allergies), this stuff smears all over my face, ruins my makeup, and it got on my contact lenses too and ruined them. Plus it does not wash off!
Sadly, a total fail. I gave it a few chances but each time it ruined me.
Just an O.K. mascara but I do not think I will repurchase because it did not give me the volume and the drama it promised. The good thing is, it did not smudge and was not too difficult to remove. It will probably sit in the back of my make up drawer and not get used much. What a waste of money!!!
