I bought this mascara after seeing it being used by a few gurus on YouTube and I can say its the worst mascara I've ever purchased. It doesn't make my eyelashes look longer but seems as i have small eyelashes, no mascara performs mirracles for me. However,my biggest problem is getting it off. It sticks to my eyelashes like glue making it impossible to come off. All its done for me is make my eyes sore from scrubbing at them to get it off. After trying to make it work, I threw it in the bin a few days after I bought it.
I am in love. This mascara is amazing. Amazing volume. Amazing length. Amazing staying power. This mascara really does do it all. One coat is great, two coats makes my lashes look so long and full I almost can't believe it. I've been a huge fan of CG Lash Blast and Exact Eyelights but I can't see myself going back to either of those now. I seriously fall asleep in this mascara all the time (I know that's bad but some days I'm just too tired to bother taking it off) and when I wake up it still looks good and I have no smudges. I use the waterproof version. Definitely worth giving a try!
My holy grail mascara.
On my lashes, it is very lengthening and volumizing, the brush makes the application so flawless, and the curl really holds throughout the day which is very important to me.
I have repurchased several times and will keep repurchasing.
The only con for me is that i find that it has to dry up a bit (so been used a few times) before you can get the full lash effect, when it is brand new it can be a bit too heavy or clumpy.
I left a review about this mascara last month, and I mentioned how it was alright and that I have to get used to the brush. I'm a cosmetician and Maybelline is surprisingly my favourite line. Well, this is now my all time favourite mascara. I love it more than the Rocket Vol. (That's big coming from me).. This mascara is wonderful, the brush.. THE brush is actually amazing (personally). This makes my lashes separate, long, and curved. Love, love, love this. ❤️❤️❤️
FAVORITE DRUGSTORE MASCARA SO FAR! This is my first d.s. mascara & Im sooo happy with it. I think its perfection. Makes my lashes so dark & full. Does exactly what I look for in a mascara. Yes, it does clump but its really not a big deal as other ppl try to make it out to be. You can easily get them out; takes no time at all. Still one of the best. Highly rec.
If you use it right, can make eyelashes look amazing.
Tendency to clump but it can be avoided once you get the hang of it.
The bad thing about this mascara is that it flakes... 2 hours after application there are black flakes of mascara all over my cheeks :(
If not for the flaking, this would probably be my favourite mascara.
This is so great for short and stubborn lashes. When you take the effort to curl your barely there lashes and slap this baby on, they look like.. well falsies. It starts to clump on the second coat, so I think one coat is fine. This mascara works best I think when you scrape off the excess product from the brush at the opening of the bottle.
THIS STUFF LITERALLY MAKES ME LOOK LIKE MY LASHES ARE DOUBLED. I CAN'T EVEN EXPRESS HOW MUCH I LOVE IT. I've tried numerous mascaras from high end brands like Clinique, but this one blew me away. For the price and the volume, it's honestly the best out there.
This is an all round average mascara, the thing I don't understand is what all the hype was about? I'm sure it must have worked wonders for some (obviously by some of the reviews) but for me I thought for its price I wouldn't go back again. Compared to some drugstore mascaras this was fairly expensive, the packaging was bulky and made my eyelashes stick together giving a "false" look but perhaps so false that I only had 4 eyelashes!! I'd say try it, it could work maybe not. For me I'm not so sure :/
I am a serious mascara junkie. I've tried almost every brand, including the more expensive ones. I always avoided Maybelline because I hated Great Lash so much, but when I asked my hairstylist what made her lashes so amazing, she said she wore The Falsies. I tried it for myself and surprisingly it was pretty awesome!
Since then I've tried a few other new brands, including Benefit They're Real!, and this is still my old standby. It does flake a little by the end of the day, but isn't bad for me. It makes my lashes look really full and dark, just like I prefer. I've bought 3-4 tubes of this by now and it may be my HG mascara. I also liked Dior Show and Buxom mascaras, but The Falsies is less gloppy than Dior Show (and a tube lasts way longer) and it gives more lash fullness than Buxom.
