Love it! The best mascara I've used yet. I love the staying power of the waterproof version. I occasionally get a watery eye, so there's no issues with colour run when that happens. It can be a little difficult to remove without a good makeup remover though.
It's definitely great on my lashes for making them look fuller without looking clumpy, and the brush gives me enough lift and curl that I don't need to use a curler, and it opens my eyes up nicely.
This is my fall back mascara when I can't afford DiorShow. I love it its just not back enough for my taste.

I have Asian stick-straight lashes and I actually like this mascara. The wand is a big plus factor for me. Even after curling, sometimes the lashes on the ends just don't curl and this wand pushes them up really easily. I don't find it to be that dramatic but it does give me length and volume, hold my curl and doesn't smudge.. My only issues with this mascara is that it gets really sticky if you apply many layers and it is one of the most terribly difficult to remove waterproof mascaras I have ever used. Even with oil-cleansers, eye makeup removers, cleansing creams, cleansing wipes.. it always takes me 4x the amount of time and a severe combination of products to remove this.. with the possibility of still waking up with racoon eyes. Due to this, I won't buy it again.
Very sticky and didn't hold a curl for my thin, fine lashes at all.
I cannot get this product off, it is so irritating.
It's a cute container, but I would definitely NOT purchase this again.
Worst mascara I have ever tried! Not only did the brush make my eyelashes clumpy, but the mascara itself irritated my eyes like you wouldn't believe!
This is THE BEST mascara I've ever tried! Being Asian, my lashes are naturally straight and weighs down when coated with non waterproof mascara no matter how hard I curl them. I believe most of the East Asian girls would understand what I'm talking about here. So far I have found a few waterproof mascaras that are able to hold the curls: Cover Girl lash blast waterproof, Maybelline colossal waterproof, and this one! There was another waterproof mascara that really lengthened and held curls by Maybelline, but unfortunately was discontinued.
Back to the Falsies. This mascara not only holds perfect curls, but also volumizes AND lengths like nothing else! I usually apply this first and then apply another layer of some cheap volumizing/lengthening mascara, my lashes would then look absolutely much longer and fuller. The combo I'm currently using is waterproof Falsies+NYC show time volumizing waterproof (despite the name, this cheapie doesn't hold curls like real waterproof products, maybe this is because of my stubborn Asian lashes)
This mascara dries fast, but not so fast that you can't even apply a second coat while it's still wet. Clumping isn't an issue either, because any mild clumping could be easily brushed off, besides the whole point of volumizing mascaras is to make your lashes thick, isn't it? Of course there is a line between volume and spider legs and this mascara definitely does not cross the line.
Overall, great mascara, the best product I've encountered so far. The second best is the waterproof colossal which doesn't lengthen my lashes as well as this one does.
Price-wise, this mascara usually costs around 6 Canadian dollars in Walmart, which may seem a bit more expensive than some cheapies at Cherry Culture of ELF website but you'd never know whether those mascaras would hold curls. For girls with stubborn straight lashes like mine, finding a good mascara indeed requires some luck.
This is a relatively good mascara in my opinion. It holds curls and provides volume but you definitely can't achieve the fake eyelashes effect. Do note that i already have long and thick eyelashes in the first place, i'm just looking for something to enhance it and maybe fill in the volume of my eyelashes. The formula is wet which is something i like and the waterproof quality is great, it won't budge until you use an waterproof eye makeup remover. I noticed there's no flaking for me even after wearing it up till 10 hours. Overall a good mascara with a decent price.
My eyelashes have some natural volume as I have two rows of lashes, which the internet says is a "disease" however I think it's a benefit. My eyelashes are also naturally jet black. I use mascara to give even more blackness and to make them look more "made up".
A lot of regular mascaras don't do a whole lot for my eyelashes but this one is satisfactory. It does add extra volume and even some length. I don't think it looks like false lashes, though. The Illegal Lenghts looks more like falsies than this one.
I like the waterproofing of this mascara. Some may claim to be waterproof but will melt or smudge, as I have oily lids and watery eyes from contacts. This one is so waterproof, it's actually a pain to take off.
It clumps A LOT but I think it's the volumizing formula. If you take a clean eyebrow comb or clean mascara wand, you can brush away the extra clumps.
I even dipped my eyeliner brush into the mascara tube and used the mascara as an eyeliner. REALLY GOOD. No smudging, no melting.
Overall, I'd buy this again!
I have long lashes to begin with and this product did nothing for me. Points for being easy to remove though!
Not a favorite of mine. You have to work quick with it when applying, don't let it dry in between coats. It does clump quite a bit and I found that irritating.
