I give this a 4/5. It is a unique product and I think many will like it. The products performance was fine, but it has sadly been siting in the back of my drawer because I have such a hard time getting the stuff off. All in all I think this is a good mascara, gives nice voluminous lashes as the other reviewers have said. I personally stay away from waterproof mascaras (this has a waterproof and non-waterproof version) because I like my mascara to come off with ease and a little remover. I have very fine lashes and I don't like to stress them out. The brush took a few times to perfect, you do have to get used to it, but once you do you are able to really get some nice big lashes from it even from my barely there lashes to begin with. If that is what you are looking for and don't mind taking extra time to remove the mascara then this might be right for you. I will not be throwing it in the trash, but it is not my everyday mascara either. perhaps on a night out when I don't want to use real false lashes :)
UPDATE: This ended up at the back of my drawer. I have moved onto better pastures so to speak, and just don't have patience with hard to remove product.

When I first tried this mascara I thought I didn't like it much, because I wasn't used to the spoon brush and it seemed too wet and clumpy.. But remembering that every other mascara worked better for me after drying just a bit I decided to give it time. So I kept using it, and now it's a fave for me! Just have to clean off the brush before applying, and then apply a few coats (as with any other) and it's great! Lengthens, curls up my lashes and great volume! I always buy waterproof because of my watery eyes, and it stays put, no smudges :) Comes off easily with my Almay eyemakeup remover pads. Great stuff!

Clumped so badly on me! Not right when i put it on but about 4 hours later I would glance in a mirror and be shocked! I was very excited to try this since I'm a fan of lashblast and this one seemed similar but Falsies is awful. It does not come off of my lashes at night. I was washing and tugging on my eyes way too much with this product. I used the same Sonia kashuk makeup remover as I do with all my other mascaras and this would not leave my lashes! Its a shame because I did get great lift and definition from it but it was such a disaster to remove and "declump". There is something in the formula that clings like crazy to the lashes and I suppose thats how it makes the lashes long but its not worth it if I can't get it off! I will NOT be repurchasing ever again. Sticking with telescopic and lashblast!!

For me, it works great. It doesn't clump, it doesn't give me spider-web-legs-whatever lashes.
I think the reason why it doesn't work for others is because of:
1) lash type
mine are really long and dense, so I thought it would definitely clump my lashes, but I was wrong, so yay.
i start from the "root" and then wiggle it upwards. it really defines my lashes when i do that.
however, i'm switching back to my physician's formula mascara, because although it isn't waterproof, i'm happier knowing it's not that harmful to my health and the environment. (yeah, im a tree-hugger)

I love this mascara. It does everything, especially lengthens my lashes. I didn't like it that much at first, because I didn't know how to use the spoon brush and I used it wrong and it made my lashes clump, but once I realized which way to hold the brush, it worked amazingly.
The only thing I don't like so much is that it can make my lashes a bit messy if I put too much of it. I just gotta stop when it still looks good.

By far the WORST mascara I've ever used. Honestly, I was a sucker for the packaging and was extremely disappointed. Clumped, flaked, smudged, and smelled foul. Horrible brush, too.

Favorite mascara i've ever owned. I use this daily. I understand how people can hate it for it's clumpy-ness but honestly, you have to work at it. One coat for me looks awful. I use 3-4 and i love the look. It does flake a tad but it's not a big deal for me. In my opinion, the formula is the perfect consistancy. Not to wet, not to dry. I think it does exsactly what it says. Gives you the look of false lashes. I've actually gotten asked a few times by friends who attend my school if i was wearing false lashes. Overall, great mascara and it's worth a try. Deffinitly my holy grail mascara for life.

This horrible mascara clumped and separated my aleady thin eyelashes - and that was after using a eyelash primer.

Hated it. It was horrible- didn't do like it advertised and it flaked and clumped like nobody's business. I threw it away after 2 uses. I went back to my voluminous by loreal.. much better.
***** Very disappointing

I like this all except the brush. The shape of the brush (curved, acts like a spoon for lashes) and the bristles are not the problem. Its that its flexible and kinda pivots when you apply. I want a firm wand so I can really dig in and separate my lashes. I just get a little messy using it. Could be my technique and not the mascara's fault who knows.
Its very black, not too clumpy (a little b/c of the flexi wand) and I do not have flaking issues. I think its worth a try if you want volume and length at a cheap price. I got this for $6 at Walgreens.
