I really liked this mascara with the exception that it is ridiculously hard to get off! I guess I should have expected that from a waterproof mascara, but I have used waterproof mascaras in the past and they have all come off fairly easily with makeup remover. With this mascara I used makeup remover to take it off at night, washed my face and then used makeup remover for my eyes again in the morning before washing my face to attempt to get rid of the lingering mascara. I will say that I do tend to use a lot of mascara so that doesn't help that fact that it is hard to get off, but even so it's never been this much of a challenge with other products. I will probably try the non-waterproof formula because I do LOVE how this mascara makes my lashes look. If you like dramatic lashes I would recommend this.
This was a very average mascara for me. I have stubborn asian lashes that don't hold a curl well. This mascara didn't help that at all. I expected more from it considering its waterproof but it just didn't hold my curl. It also didn't give me the length and volume that I wanted. It's an alright mascara, but I wouldn't purchase it again. It just didn't work for me.
- Gave me thicker looker lashes
- Lashes still felt soft to the touch after application
- Didn't cause my poker-straight Asian lashes to droop, this maintained the curl in my lashes very nicely
- Practically ZERO smudging
- Did not irritate my eyes
- Dried out rather quickly
Would definitely rebuy!
This mascara is absolutely amazing! I do have pretty long lashes naturally, but this mascara gives them a little more length, a lot more volume, and separates them. I never have trouble with clumping and it really is waterproof. Love this stuff
I've tried this out several times, hoping that I would fall in love with it or something. It's kind of a love-hate relationship.
Pros: If your eyelashes are naturally quite long like mine, it does give the false lash effect it claims and adds quite a bit of length.
Cons: I think a better name for it would be "The Clumpies". It really does clump like no other, probably because there is so much buildup on the brush. It doesn't give my lashes any volume, either. Did I mention it makes a mess, too? The formula is quite runny, so it gets all over the eyelid and surrounding area and is impossible to wipe off without makeup remover.
In order to use this, I have to curl my lashes, comb them, wipe nearly all the product off on a paper towel, carefully apply it, comb out all the clumps, and scrub off the black smears all over my eyelid. I guess I can use it for recitals or something, but I won't be repurchasing.
This product was only purchased for about $6 at Target, which is not that bad of a price for a drugstore mascara. My natural lashes are very unnoticeable and mascaras do not do any good to them. However, this mascara extremely lengthened them and made them look like false lashes. This mascara can be buildable, but does tend to flake within 3 coats. I would recommend purchasing this product, due to the wonders that worked for me. Also, this mascara is very waterproof and gently comes of with makeup remover.
Good volume, good color, nice application but it flakes.
Review for Falsies Waterproof mascara (purple tube) in Black Drama
I've tried a bunch of ds mascaras (Covergirls, a lot of Maybellines, Jordana...) and this is my favorite so far. It really gives me a 'falsies' look, which for me means my lashes actually show up, lol! I have typical straight Asian lashes that point straight down thanks to my monolid, so holding a curl is the most important factor in a mascara for me. And this mascara does it, it holds (and even enhances) my curl for the entire day (literally! I've had it on for up to 20 hours straight & it was 95% as good as when I first put it on) Really helps my thin lashes defy the heavy oppressive flesh of my monolid and curl straight up skyward. Volume & lengthening wise it could use some work, a few swipes won't do, you have to carefully layer & separate the lashes as you go if you want any kind of volume / length, but the awesome curl holding powers make it worth the extra work for me.
Length: 2/5 (can lengthen more but requires careful work)
PS Yes this is totally waterproof, lasted through workout AND shower and looked almost the same as before, no smudgy racoon eyes. Which is awesome,but of course on he other hand it's annoying to remove!
Just wanted to try out of curiousity, seeing alot of local makeup guru using them. It worked fairly on me. Smudged a bit to my undereyes. Didn't lengthen that much. Worth trying a tube, not more :)
Doesn't really add volume, and I don't feel like it made my lashes seem much longer. Not a terrible mascara, it didn't clump up like some others I have used. Overall I feel like it only slightly enhanced my lashes rather than give them the "false lash" look, also it seems like the product dried up in the too far too soon.
