This isn't *the* perfect, ultimate HG mascara, but it's pretty darn close.
I have short, thick, straight eyelashes (I'm Asian). I'm not one of those mascara-obsessed people, but recently I've been on the hunt for a black waterproof drugstore mascara that can hold a curl and give my lashes lots of length and definition as well as a little volume without clumping. And, ladies and gents, I think I just found it.
I actually didn't have high expectations for this mascara. I thought the original Falsies was pretty good, so I didn't think this one could top it, since originals always seem to be better than versions of originals. But actually, Falsies Flared beats Falsies by far!
After 5 coats (due to the nature of my eyelashes, I need a lot of coats in order for any mascara to be effective), my lashes were wowzers! The first two coats gave me gorgeous, incredibly long, natural-looking eyelashes that looked like I wasn't wearing any mascara at all. I could've stopped there, but I didn't. The next two coats gave me that oomph and volume. It didn't give me showstopping volume, but sufficient volume as my lashes are naturally thick. The final coat gave definition and got rid of any minor clumps.
Then I curled my eyelashes, and I got such gorgeous eyelashes that were long and just so pretty overall!
Then I added one coat of the original Falsies, and WHA-POW!!!!!!!! Dayummm, who knew what a difference one coat of another mascara could make? One coat of that stuff and it gave me all the volume that Falsies Flared was missing out on without any additional clumps. Granted, I originally wasn't looking for any major volume (only a little), but now that I have it, why not keep it? I was gonna throw out the Falsies, but I'm def keeping it now! (:<
Dare I say that Falsies Flared is my HG? Maybe, just maybe.
But seriously, for just $7, you can't go wrong. This mascara is better than any of those high-end mascaras that are supposedly "better".
Would I repurchase? FO SHO.
