I have very large, round eyes with very long, straight, lashes of avg volume. I wish this worked for me because I have been using another Maybelline mascara for lower lashes only (Lash Discovery which is hard to find now). So the concept of 2 for one and only taking along one mascara for travel, is fantastic! I hope Maybelline tries this with some of their other formulations.
I have only tried the wp version and found it thick and clumpy. But I notice the issue more so on the side w/larger brush. The larger brush flattens easily for me. If I tried wiping off some excess on a paper towel (as I've done w/every other mascara I've ever had, high and low end), the brush doesn't pop back up. It kind of just sticks to itself.
The smaller side brush has shorter bristles of course which also seem sturdier. I like the shape of that brush so it makes a less than idea formula more easy to work with.
But not being able to really use easily I could not see any volumizing effect. Again kudos for the great idea, I hope the execution will be improved.

If I had to rate this product for it's waterproof property I would give it a five but for it's volumizing property I give it a ZERO. Made my lashes look very dry and did not made them look thicker. Not even after 2 coats...forget a third coat if you don't want clumps. I threw the tube away after one month of use. Everything was dried up inside and nothing could glide on my lashes. Will definitly not repurcase

I do not recommend this mascara. Bought this in hopes of giving me natural looking lashes. I hate the wand, I hate the formula. It's too wet and clumpy. I curl my lashes before putting on mascara and drier formulas like the lash stiletto keeps the curl in place. But this one? It straightens out my lashes as if I haven't curled at all. So disappointed with this. Will not repurchase.

I really like this mascara, but mostly I'm in love with the small brush. I use it for both top and bottom lashes.You can wiggle it right into your lash line, then pull slowly for really natural, fanned out lashes.Some of the reviewers say it's clumpy, but you have to wipe any mascara a bit on some tissue, especially when it's new. It's kind of wet when new, and I like mascara after it has aged a bit, so I take the top off a let it set for a few minutes, or blow on it as it dries really fast.This is a mascara that washes off very easily, so when you tear up it will wipe away. I wouldn't wear this if I was going to a sad movie, but I find I'm loving it for everyday use.

I think this is the worst mascara I have ever used. It is SO clumpy and messy that it is almost impossible to use. I had to somewhere to be yesterday and I ended up not even wearing mascara. Even though I wiped the wand several times it had this horrible, clumpy & spidery look and smeared all over my eyelid. I had to just wipe it off and it stung my eyes. Ugh!
I thought it sounded like a great idea with separate wands for upper and lower lashes but no...the way they unscrew is really awkward and difficult to use. Just a pain overall. I will probably just throw it away which says a lot because I am very frugal and hate wasting money.

It's terrible, so clumpy on my lashes, I don't know if it's because I have long black/brown eyelashes but doesn't work for me and if I just close my eyes the mascara is underneath my eyes it's so bad DO NOT BUY IT WASTING YOUR MONEY!!!!

I love this mascara. I actually posted on the board about it and realized I didn't have a review up hah! Here it goes.
I found mine at Superstore for $6.98CAD. It's a double end wand. One end is a super skinny wand ideal for bottom lashes. (Which its awesome for) and one side for the top. The color is nice and inky black. You can get a brown as well and waterproof. I personally find the non waterproof to be pretty resistant to tears. It also didn't burn my eyes which is a plus.
The formula is on the mousse side which is great because it's not to wet. Therefore it's not messy and it dries quickly making each coat apply evenly and bold. Also the skinny brush works awesome for combing through the top lashes too for a super clean soft look. Its ideal for short sparse lashes, or enhancing long ones. I have gone through hundreds of mascaras and never actually repurchased one until I found this. On my 6th tube.
The only downside is the packaging. Because it's a dual end it's quantity is small. Keeping in mind with both ends combined you get lots you probably will use one end more than the other causing a constant cycle of having to purchase over and over again. Truthfully for me, I don't mind it. These are normally close to $10 dollars so I get mine while they are on sale in double quantities. Give it a go. It's one of those things where if you hate it at least you didn't send a fortune. Life of a MUA.

The side for the top lashes has a brush that is set up to pick up and flare out every lash and it does a great job. This a mascara that thickens and lengthens well, without having to sacrifice one for the other. The pigmentation is a very deep black that darkens lashes beautifully - one of the darkest I've used. It's okay for holding a curl. Formula is not too wet or dry. However, it's not buildable - it starts to make lashes stick together and get stubby and clumpy. The other complaint I have is that lashes can look a little "crunchy" with this, and I prefer a softer look.
As far as the bottom lash side, it's really good. I'm pretty sure it's the same brush from their Lash Discovery mascara, and for all I know, the same formula too. The brush is very skinny and does well with applying mascara to those tiny lashes without globbing it on or making a mess, like can happen so easily when doing the bottom lashes. The pigmentation is a little less deep than the top side, but the formula goes on cleanly and completes the look nicely.
Lasts all day and night without smearing, melting, or flaking.

I do enjoy the regular Falsies mascara, so I bought this one in waterproof. It's almost like they are using a different formula completely. This one hardly shows on mylashes at all, even with a couple coats, and it straightens out my lashes. I find the double-ended wand gimicky and confusing. It has a little bottle on each end, where I would think the end of the wands should meet in the middle, so it probably is a different formula for each. The tiny wand was hard for me to use. I have huge eyes, so maybe I need the big wand for the lower lashes as well. Just altogether a disappointment.

I really like the falsies mascaras. This is great for mornings where I just can't get it together and using a large wand on my lower lashes is just too hazardous. I'm not sure what to think about the larger wand-- it's very twisty. Works ok but would like a normal falsies wand. Will repurchase, but would like better if they came in seperate tubes. I do understand the clumpy complaints the wand is messy-you will need a lash comb with this.
