makes my lashes HUGE, but it's super clumpy.
I prefer the regular falsies to this one. The tube looks very cute with the wings and convinces you it'll be awesome, but nah. This Flared mascara's wand is less messy than the regular falsies (in my experience), and I like that, but it just doesn't have the "SHAZAM!" that the original falsies does. It's great if you're going for a very light, natural look. It doesn't clump and my lashes were more separated, which is nice, but they didn't pop as much, even when I layered.
WATERPROOF VERSION REVIEW. Does what it says it does. It makes your lashes look lush, long and curled. However it flakes and clumps. I had to use a dry old brush to get the clumps out. Maybe this is because it is the waterproof version? Will not purchase again. I prefer Rimmel's.
Eh... this was just an okay product. I don't want to talk it down, since it IS a mascara and did what mascara does; made your lashes look a bit more. But it didn't do what it promised. I didn't get the flase lash look, even after almost five minutes of layering. Not one of my better investments... won't be revisiting this. I did, however, like the packaging, very nice :) The brush was too big and chunky for me, and it didn't do much for my lashes, as stated before. Do what you will, it might work better for other people...
Update: Okay, maybe it's just me, but this mascara got a lot better after a week? Now it actually IS giving me a false lash/flared look! So, scratch what I said above, it's a great mascara! Just need to give it some time! Oh, and it's amazing if you use NYC City Curls over it, looks very curled without the curler!
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.
