My HG Mascara (closely followed by L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes)
Makes my eyelashes look long and full and I love how dark the black colouring is.
No need for more than one coat as more coats can make the product look clumpy. This means less product I have to use and this mascara gets to last longer!
Will repurchase this for a very long time. I saw it all over youtube and thought since it is so cheap (even in New Zealand where I live) I should give it a try and I was not let down.
LOVE LOVE LOVE

Oh man based i love this! Been using careprost since the beginning of the year and this mascara does it all for my lashes. Length, volume, thickness and everyone mentions my lashes when I have this on. I got it at Target for $5.94, who can beat that? None of my high end mascara can, that is for certain. I am about to be 27 and I have been using Maybelline Volum's line of mascaras since high school. They continue to slay the beauty industry with their superb offerings. Well done again Maybelline! This is my HG.

I managed to get this at US prices here in Japan so I was quite happy to give it a go.
The wand is curved to help flare out the lashes. I like that it doesn't clump and leaves my lashes defined and pretty compared to no mascara. I have a bit of a hard time not getting it on my skin when I do my bottom lashes though because of the large wand. I usually only do one coat but this could probably be built up.
It hasn't smudged on me and does what it is supposed to. The packaging is in a chubby purple tube, which is quite fun as I am used to minimalistic packaging. It is a good mascara, the only reason why I wouldn't buy this again is because I want to try the other Maybelline mascara formulas.

I purchased this after seeing a video by Tanya Burr who loves this mascara.
I have medium length sparse lashes that need lengthening and thickening without looking clumpy. I've been loyal to Maybelline Define-a-lash mascara for a couple of years now but I wanted to try a different mascara, so I bought The Falsies.
This mascara has quite a large curved tip/wand which feels a bit clumpsy. I feel that I'm not able to get into the "corners" of my eyes in the way that I'm able to with Define-a-lash which has a thin straight wand.
The Falsies is a lot more creamy than Define-a-lash but I can't build it up gradually the way that I can with Define-a-lash because so much product is deposited on to my lashes with the first swipe that by the second or third swipes it starts to form clumps. I haven't experienced flakiness, so the formulation is not a problem: my issue with this is its design.
The Falsies isn't a bad product if you already have thick and long lashes. However, I feel that for me, I'm not able to create the length and intensity I want. Define-a-lash on the other hand is an HG mascara: I love its precision and "natural" non-clumpy finish.
I would not buy this product again.

for me, this is a very mediocre product. it clumps, doesn't really make my eyelashes look at all like i have "falsies" on, and dries out very quickly. not wanting to waste it, i used it all as a second coat over mascaras that work well for me.

This is my favourite mascara that I have tried and I have tried a lot. It gives me length and volume and is very buildable. I don't get a false lash effect whatsoever but really, I understand now that no mascara is going to give that with my short lashes.
It holds a curl very well and doesn't flake or smear. I like this a lot more than The Collosal, although that Is still a great mascara.
To use, I apply about 3-4 coats to get the effect I want. If I am going out then I will layer Nyx Doll Eye mascara in long lashes over the top to give definition.
I've given this a 5 because I have tried so many mascaras but always return to this one. It isn't a HG but it's pretty close!

this is my fav mascara from maybelline. I have long lashes but they are sparse so I usually use volumising mascaras. always curl your lashes before applying any mascara, but you need a product that can hold the curls. what I do to make this mascara work for me is to apply it from 3/4 of my lashes' length, ie not applying right from the base.and also., you must use the correct side of the brush (the spooned side). be patient and applying from 3/4 of the lashes will layer on the length and volume. This does not smudge on my oily lids and my lashes feel feathery fluffy and light.

I bought this on a whim a few months ago as I've heard amazing reviews from the youtube community but I regret it every time i open my makeup drawer! It was clumpy and in an hour it flaked all around my eyes. Now, minor flaking doesn't bother me but this was horrible and multiple friends commented on it. Will be throwing this out.

I tried the falsies mascara years ago when it first came out (I think it may have been the falsies flared waterproof) and I absolutely hated it. It may have been because I was using the brush upside down back then. I recently decided to give the falsies mascara another try after seeing so many bloggers loving it and seeing how nice it looked in pictures. I'm so glad I did. My lashes look so full and it gives decent lenght and makes them really stand out. I like the thin scooped brush...I find it very easy to use, and it's a nice change of pace from all these big huge brushes flooding the market It also makes my lower lashes look perfect, like very few other mascaras do. I'm currently loving this mascara and I'm really surprised it hasn't gotten higher ratings on here.

I didn't like this product for a few reasons.
1) The brush always picked up wayyy too much solution, which resulted in clumpy lashes that took forever to dry.
2) Trying to do my bottom lashes with the wet, clumpy solution and hooked wand was very difficult and took a lot of precision patience.
3) The mascara had flaked off by the end of the day (or night), leaving a shadowy halo around my eyes.
All in all, not my best purchase. It really didn't do much for me. It may have lengthened my lashes but it didn't separate them, and it had very poor staying power.

Did not lengthen much which is what I need. It clumped my lashes together but the texture is quite smooth. Don't like the brush. Will not repurchase, have used many better mascaras, fell for the name "falsies"

I love Maybelline mascaras and I am often time impressed with their formulas and their mascara wands. I am a BIG FAN of the Volum' Express Colossal mascara (yellow tube) and decided to give this one a go when I finished that tube.
This has a curved/flexible wand which makes application to the lashes easier and distributes the product evenly to coat each lash.
The formula is very wet and very black which I am okay with. It was easy to build up drama on my thin lashes and it really defined my eyes.
It dries pretty crusty however, I did not experience any smudging or flaking. Removal is quite simple with warm water and mild cleanser.
I like this for volumizing and thickening my lashes, however it is not enough to lengthen my lashes therefore, I prefer the Colossal!

This is a pretty good mascara, but it is a rather high-maintenance one, too. My lashes did end up looking thicker, longer and a bit more curled than my normally straight, Asian lashes look. But, I'm not sure the time and effort involved with getting that effect is worth it. The first time I tried this, I applied it right out of the package, kinda just slapped it on, not even sure which part of the brush I was using. I kept wondering why everyone kept mentioning a "spoon shape" and using the "flat part of the brush" vs. the "edge of the brush." It looked awful. Clumpy lashes, mascara on my lids, ick. Then, I remembered reading on a blog that the formula improves as it dries out, so I put it away for a couple of weeks, went on YouTube to unearth the mysteries of the brush's shape, and then tried again. Okay. So, the whole waiting thing is the first part of the high-maintenance comment. Here's some more evidence: 1) You have to offload a ton of mascara first, either by scraping it off on the edge of the tube, or wiping it off on a tissue first. 2) You do get better results by using the flat part of the brush (think the part that would correspond to the back of a spoon), but if your vision is like mine and you only wear glasses (which of course you can't be wearing while applying eye makeup), it may take a bit longer to find that shape and hold it towards your lashes accordingly. 3) I needed a lot of time for lash combing afterwards to get rid of residual clumping. This is not ideal in the mornings when you're in a rush since metal lash combs and speed are not compatible for me. In terms of holding a curl (so very important for us straight-lashed people), it was fair. Yes, it wilted it, but not all the way. I'd say my lashes were held out perpendicular to my face. The smudge factor wasn't bad. Not great, but not bad. It did start to smudge halfway through my day, but not in an overtly obvious way. Unfortunately, it tended to leave those little balls of mascara at the ends of my lashes. Using a lash comb usually helped with this, but again, it took slow and careful movements. Now, I have other mascaras that give me the same effect, but for cheaper and/or with less effort involved, so I wouldn't repurchase. Note: I try to avoid eye makeup with parabens as I'm 98% sure they're the ingredient that make my eyes burn. Thankfully, the washable version of The Falsies does *NOT* contain parabens, though the waterproof one and the Black Drama shade do (both the regular and waterproof). HTHS.

I LOVE THIS MASCARA! I'm my second tube of it, and I have no complaints! It makes my lashes look super full, and long! Plus it doesn't clump up!

I really really like the wand, the effect on the lashes, and it stays ALL day ! The price is also amazing! Worth the try!

Buy anything else

I am really, really surprised by this mascara. I tried chanel, ysl, dior, givenchy, lancome mascaras and never ever bought cheaper mascara. Until I got tired of clumps, drag queen like lenght without any volume or dry mascara dots under my eyes.
I grabbed it in supermarket and I didnt expect it to better. It gives me volume, doesnt clump, doesnt lenghten too much (thats something I DONT want) and doesnt crumble after some hours. I like the brush too, doesnt smear it on my eyelid. Awesooome. I read reviews saying that you can feel it on your lashes but I dont feel it.
Packaging is a little tacky and theres no luxe factor but Im using it everyday and looving it :)

the best and most fave mascara
Age: 19-24 Skin: Dry, Olive Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Despite the lack of good reviews, I actually really like this product. I've tried a whole bunch of other mascaras including L'Oreal's Voluminous and Telescopic, NYX's Doll Eye and Benefit's They're Real... out of all of them, this is my favourite one. It gives you the right amount of volume, so long as you know how to properly do it. It also lengthens and it keeps the curl for a long time. It also doesn't irritate my eye like the Telescopic does, which is such a neausance.

Nice and waterproof but still smudged on the outer corners. I smile a lot so my eyelashes touch there and smudge. I don't like the finish. It's too shiny for me. Otherwise it doesn't clump too much, it is a very dark black for having bought the darkest color, it's one of the more volumizing mascaras, and it doesn't relax my curl considering I bought the waterproof version.
