I very much prefer the original falsies to this new one. I absolutely adored the first one (aside from how impossible it was to remove) but this brush just doesn't do it for me. It's far too chunky and stiff and the shape is just strange. Kind of spoon-shaped, kind of triangular. It doesn't layer well at all and one coat only makes my lashes look "okay". I won't repurchase this particular version, but I'll definitely be going back to the regular Falsies in the future.
I just purchased this yesterday as my original falsies mascara ran out. I do not like this one bit. The original one wasn't the best, but it did a decent job. My eyelashes are pretty long naturally, so really I just needed something to make them dark and thicker, which it did so I had good expectations for this product. However, the flare kind clumps horribly. It gives me spider lashes after one coat and it flakes and irritates my eyes. I would not repurchase.
I usually use Apple mascara, which is my hg (great volume and holds a curl). But I do get bored and like to switch things up a bit at times. The falsies flared mascara comes with a great price tag, and a nifty wand (slightly curved on one side and bendable at the base). Although it failed to perform up to my expectations. It is very natural upon the first few coats, but it does build up slightly by the third without clumping (not so bad, I know). However, it does not hold a curl for the life of me. My lashes ended up looking straighter and lighter then usual. Either way, I'm glad I have my apple.
I purchased this mascara on a whim after getting sick of my long time love Covergirl Lash Blast (I couldn't tolerate it's stupid wand anymore). Needless to say, I absoltely love this mascara. The curved wand is fantastic and coats my top and bottom lashes really well. It's very buildable and I'm able to get lots of volume and a little bit of length. Also, it doesn't smudge!!!! I'm so thrilled about that - Will definitely re-purchase.***UPDATE: Took one lippie off because it flakes throughout the day. What a shame. Still like this mascara though.
I normally hate Maybelline mascaras because the formula is too wet, but this one is different. I like the big curved brush. It doesn't clump my lashes together and applies a nice, even coat. The only thing that I don't care for is that it flakes and actually irritates my eyes. If there wasn't so much flakiness I'd give this a higher rating. WP versions are usually much more wet, so I don't even try. Decent mascara to say the least.
wow i'm kind of shocked how many bad reviews i'm seeing for this. i actually really love this mascara. it's not too wet so it doesn't clump my lashes together and it gives them good length, volume and still leaves them defined. my only gripe is that it feels like i'm already starting to run out but i could be wrong. my advice for those experiencing problems with this mascara is try experimenting with how you use the brush. i'll use mine so the curve is facing down and the high point of the spoon is against my lashes, i feel like if i use the dip against my lashes it puts too much product in one area and causes clumps. i'm actually kinda scared they might discontinue this so i'm contemplating buying a few at once.
I normally love maybelline mascara and have always purchased this brand. However, it caused me extreme inconvienence the past month. I'm not sure if I am the only one that this has happened to, but I wear contact lenses and found that whenever I wore this mascara, some sort of odd film would develop on my lenses. I am thinking that there is some ingredient that is causing this to happen, but sadly I had to throw away my fairly new mascara. I am just curious if this has happened to anyone else who wears contacts.
i have the non waterproof version, it stays on my lashes during the day and it's very easy to wash off, didn't irritate my eyes. It looks good on my eyes, i figured if u put another coat when it's completely dry, it will clumps. So I did it really fast and I tried not to twist the brush. i guess my lashes are always long (not very full), they just look like mascara lashes, a little bit fuller, doesn't look like falsies. Overall, it's a decent mascara, no clumps or smudges, easy to take off, stay nice all day. But i found lashes came off more often when i use this :(
This mascara is the worst I've ever tried. It gave me long spidery eyelashes and clumped together. There was absolutely no volume. A really good mascara from maybelline is Lash Stiletto.
Didn't like this version. Wet formula that clumped and made my lashes look stick like, not much volume or "flair" happening. Returned.
