Love how this adds so much length to my lashes! I have Asian lashes, but once I curl my lashes and use this mascara, I definitely achieve that false lash look. This is my favorite mascara to date and the only one I plan on repurchasing for a long....long time. Only one downside is that it tends to clump a little bit. Removes easily with eye makeup remover. Love it!

I have been searching high and low for this mascara and none of my local drugstores carried it for weeks! I was lucky enough a month ago when my grocery store had a huge display of this for $4 each on sale! I grabbed the blackest shade in both waterproof and regular (I haven't tried the regular yet, still sitting in my backup stash).

First thing I loved about this mascara is the wand! The spoon shape is easy to work with and really separates my lashes adding beautiful length and curl. It does not volumize a lot for me, but I am very satisfied at how my lashes look with this mascara on. I think people (like myself) were expecting a real falsies lash look. To me this mascara gave me what NYX Doll Eyes mascaras couldn't achieve - dolly eyed lashes. Since this mascara separates so well, the curl and length gave my eyes a more wide awake eye look! It can get clumpy if you don't 'spoon' (haha get it) the wand up right, but the mascara doesn't dry too quickly imo to where I can't comb out the clump before it sets - I really like that. I do have a hard time using the wand on my bottom lashes so I've been using a different mascara for that area. Removal is also not as difficult, it is waterproof so make sure you are using a good eye makeup remover.

The reason this mascara did not get a 5 lippie from me is due to the lack of volume I anticipated. It is still a great mascara and it has been added to my daily mascara stash :)

I have tried many , many mascaras in my time. I came across the ad for Maybelline The Falsies Volume Express. I had high hopes for beautiful long thick eyelashes. Much to my dismay, it didn't work for me. I even tried it with a eyelash primer. It still didn't work like I expected. I did like the brush and it was really black. I got a little bit of length and no volume. I tried to apply a lot of coats to see if I could get the volume, but all it did was clump. I took forever to separate my lashes. So it was no falsies look for me.

I love the Falsies mascara, I tried this waterproof one and didn't like it as much as the regular Falsies:) I've bought 3 tubes so far and I'm hoping it doesn't get discountinued because it works wonders!!!

I love this mascara. I am a mascara junkie. And for a drugstore mascara this by far is my fav so far. It really curls and defines my lashes. It doesnt clump or run and I work in a hot environment. It really just holds up! I highly recommend!

Best mascara I've used ever. I have short, barely there asian lashes and this mascara holds the curl all day, while giving volume and length. I work in a hot kitchen, and this doesn't smudge or give me raccoon eyes, and most mascaras do that to me. It's affordable too. This is definitely my HG mascara.

this mascara works wonders on my ultra thin eyelashes, it adds tons of volume without clumping, and holds my curl...but the packaging is soo annoying i always have to wipe off extra mascara onto the top of the tube and its getting so gross and thats why i took off a lippie

this mascara is okay. it does lengthen my short asian lashes by alot! but i hate how this doesn't hold my curls so well. and it was a bit clumpy. overall its an okay mascara but i probably won't buy this again.

EDIT: so i found out if i apply it with a light hand it holds up my curls a bit longer. and it still is clumpy! but it's better than the first time i've tried it.

I have a lot of lashes, and they are very long. I curl my lashes prior to applying, and this mascara holds the curl all day long! It can cause a bit of clumping, but I am still very satisfied with the product. It adds an impressive amount of length! When I look up, my lashes reach my eyebrows! The volume is impressive as well. The price of this mascara was very cheap compared to my old mascara. I would definently reccomend this mascara to others.
