I bought this at the recommendation of a MAC MUA. I really didn't need a new mascara and I consider myself a CG LashBlast loyalist, but she told me I could return it within 30 days if I didn't like it. I figured it was worth giving a shot----I absolutely love it. It gives amazing length and curl without so much volume that it looks fake. It is perfect for day time drama, and with a couple extra coats, it is perfect for a dramatic night look too.
My lash blast has officially been replaced! Sorry, wallet!
My favorite of all the MAC mascaras (and one of my faves all around); of course it's the most expensive one also. Gives great length and holds curl; does not give a ton of volume.
the only thing false about this mascara is the implication of long 'false' looking lashes. It doesnt provide any volume what so ever.
Definitely would not purchase again. Get better results with DS brands, especially Maybelline.
I bought this product with the MAC prep and Prime. I have been using it with the primer, but I started using it by itself this morning and I think it actually looks better without it. This mascara give a natural, yet dramatic, feathery type of look. The formula goes on nice and creamy but dries fast. You can add a few coats for extra drama, but actually looks just fine with just one coat. I like the one alot!
Update: I just bought MAC Haute and Naughty and it is WAY better than this one. Check it out ladies! It does however depend on what look you are shooting for. False Lashes does indeed give extreme length but if you are looking for drama than go for H & N.
I looooove this!! I mean they really did make my lashes long and full like falsies! I am super happy I invested in this mascara!
Meh. That's pretty much how I feel when I apply False Lashes. It's very black, which is nice, and it doesn't flake. It's a little clumpy, a little wet, and pretty much completely mediocre. I have pretty good lashes and this pretty much just made them black. That's it. It's okay. It's the Kanye Shrug of mascara.
For 15 years I used the same drugstore brand mascara I swore I would never stray from. Sure I've tried out other more expensive brands once each and have always been disappointed. Then I bought this mascara as an impulse buy when I was purchasing other Mac items. I was shocked by the length it gave my lashes. They did look fake! They almost touched my eyebrows! You do really have to use a couple coats. It amplifies every single lash when you do. It's not exactly that volumizing but length is more what it's meant to accomplish. I love this mascara. It is light on the eyelashes. People really did take notice. Combined with a liquid eyeliner, you have the perfect eye makeup without all the work. I would definitely buy this again - sorry brand I've been faithful to - I found a replacement!
this is really a great mascara in many ways. it def depends on your preferences though. at first coat it's barely anything, i have to put like 3 coats. but then it looks very pretty, feathery long and separated. i like how it makes my eyes look more like i have naturally long and pretty lashes rather than like i have on obvious tons of mascara (even with all those coats). this is really great for days with no other eye makeup on or if that's your everyday look anyway. it does find every lash and bring them out beautifully, but the overall volume effect isn't major, hence, not the look, if what you want is super drama/intense eye makeup times.
it feels lightweight, soft and pliable once dry...which is great, i hate the crispy feel. it doesn't flake much but can smudge, although i rub my eyes a lot.
price is a tad expensive for mac mascara, and that's one bummer b/c the cost effectiveness is usually a great reason to go for the mac mascaras.
i would def repurchase but it is still worth experimenting elsewhere.
FYI-tried the extreme black last time and i think the formula is a little different. i live in a very rainy humid climate and i mean this smudges like mad by the end of the day, in particular on rainy days. so bad i looked like i had rings around my eyes. careful with this one if you'll be exposed to excessive humidity, sweat, rain, crying etc. and go elsewhere. its decent enough on dry days though.
Love the fact that this mascara doesn't clump or smudge and it finds and defines each and every baby lash that I have. Gives "ok" volume. However, it does lengthen my lashes like crazy! If you want a natural look with just a little bit of "oomph", buy this. It's $19 a tube, very pricey imo. I love the way the tube and brush are designed.
