I bought this last week and have been wearing it every day since, usually for about 8 hours at a time. I have short, thick lashes that are curled. The thing I look for most in a mascara is length, and sometimes I've resorted to false eyelashes, hence my buying this product.
This mascara, after about 3 coats on curled lashes, gives me good length, good volume, and more thickness. It's a good mascara! I have very black, regular formula. My lashes are separated and more than actually long enough see(!!!) and just look good, though they're not exactly models for the "false lash glam" this mascara promises. I suppose if somebody were blessed with longer lashes than I to begin with, they might see that effect.
This mascara is weird, though, in the way my lashes feel when they're dry. I use a lot of coats so it's kind of hard yet soft enough for me to retouch without severe clumps(I am very careful and use a lash comb afterwards). It has minimal clumping and does not flake at all, and most mascaras tend to flake on me. At the end of the day, my cleanser removes every bit of it easily.
I would repurchase, I can see it becoming a staple in my makeup collection, and this $7 purchase eliminated the need for the countless other mascaras I have in my mascara bin, including both of the LashBlast versions and Clinique's High Impact one,

WARNING: This is such a hit and miss product. If you want a good one, you HAVE to get the Falsies regular in waterproof. The others, especially Black Drama suck like crap. They clump, flake, smudge, you name it. However, the waterproof does do it and really does give you the false eyelash effect. It lengthens more than gives volume, but not such a far difference. I can see why they call it Falsies because false eyelashes if you look at them on their own, the lashes are kind of separated, but there is a lot of them and they are long, this is what it gives. Not a loss in product, but you have to buy the regular waterproof. I actually like it very much now that I found the right one as before I wanted to burn it.

Worst mascara I've ever used! Maybelline yet again uses false advertisements and says it will give you a false lash look without false lashes (yet the model in the adds obviously has them on!)

Made my lashes too wet and clumpy. And I KNOW how to apply mascara correctly so that wasn't the problem.

I really wanted to like this product too =[

I just got some of this today and I dont know why I waited so long to buy some! I'm really impressed!. At first I was unsure as I put one coat on and thought it was good, but didn't look like false eyelashes. Then I put another coat and wa-laa! they grew substantially and it does actually build real volume and length which is brilliant.

I initially thought that the formula was a little too wet, but can see why now, it stays wet enough to build it up. The only downfall was that it kinda smudged on the top of my eyelid so looked a bit like badly put on eyeliner, and Im not too sure on the bendy wand.

But overall, I love this, it reminds me of my fave Lash Expansion (no longer available).

Also the price was great, I got it online in NZ for $15.00

Will defninitely buy again!

This mascara works wonders, i find it makes me look like im wear false eye lashes without false eye lashes. the brush is fantastic, it doesnt clump and it provides fantastic volume at a low price. i personally dont spend a lot of money on mascara or make up for that matter, but with this product i can justify spending the $6 or $7 that it costs, i bought the water proof version by accident and when it says waterproof it truly means it, it took me what almost felt like forever to get it off. with the brush being curved it hugs and adds a get deal of volume to each lash, without looking too harsh. it doesn't clump your lashes together like most mascaras do, it gives each individual lash a sense of great dimension and it makes an over all look spectacular. its one of my favorite mascaras to date, and i am very picky when it comes to mascaras because my eye lashes are thin, and short so they tend to clump extremely easily.

I wouldn’t recommend this product to anyone! It caused some of my eyelashes to fall out.

I was really surprised at how much volume and length this mascara created. Another good aspect of this mascara is that it leaves your lashes feeling soft (as opposed to being "crispy"). I like to put on one layer of this mascara and finish it off with Maybelline's Colossal in waterproof (to prevent smudging). The results are amazing. It does hold true to its name - they do make my lashes look like falsies.

I had to check out the hype about this product. Not really impressed. The packaging feels pretty cheap and seems like it will dry out quick. It does make my lashes longer but clumps easily while applying. Wouldn't buy it again.
