I first got this mascara in February. It clumped, gave no length, was super wet, and FLAKED. Omg, the flakes were so bad. So, I layered it over other mascaras just to use it up, and vowed to never repurchase.
Flash foward to April. Out of the blue, I use it on its own. WOW! by lashes are longgggggg, volumized without clumpiness, and the flaking is almost gone. I can't believe it. Its almost like another mascara.
This is not as amazing as my HG covergirl LB Fusion, but the cheaper price and results after letting it "dry" a bit make me want to repurchase is I catch this on sale or have a coupon.
I am going to get the waterproof for summer,because its $5 instead of the almost $10 LB Fusion Waterproof.

This is my HG drugstore mascara!

My lashes are thin, short, pale, straight, and :don't: hold curl. This mascara, however, literally transforms my eyelashes (seriously, they :do: look like falsies!) It makes them thick, lush, long, and inky black without much clumping-- definitely no spider lashes, even if it layer on coat after coat (which i tend to do ^^) Also, if I use the waterproof one and curl my lashes as usual, they hold the curl all day!

I am in love with this mascara and I recommend it to everyone. I have tried everything for my little lashes, from DiorShow to Rimmel and many international brands as well, but this mascara is the best, best, best.

Nothing special at all. Really. Of course, the name itself was too good to be true, and all it does is thicken a bit and nothing for lengthening. Even at 5 bucks, this was a waste.

This isn't a bad mascara but it definitely doesn't live up to it's "Falsies" claim. then again, i'm no expert with mascara so if done right you might achieve the effect. but if you've only got a decent hand like me then don't expect the full shebang :)

it does go a good job of thickening and lengthening, it also stays on and doesn't really smudge. however you have to be really careful with the spoon shaped brush - apply it the wrong way and you'll be painting ink blots on your lashes. other than that, it's a good mascara for dramatic lashes with decent staying power, minimal flaking and all that. just not fabulous enough to repurchase or live up the the hype.

i feel like this mascara is great but it clumps and flakes once it starts getting old. i wish it did not feel that funny when i put it on. but it lengthens so i will purchase again in the future

This product sucks it doesnt give you the false eyelash look its clumpy and it justs does not do what it claims. DO NOT believe the commercials those girls ARE actually wearing false eyelashes.

I really tried to love this mascara...gave it a good 2 weeks and just felt like I looked whore-ish because it definitely gives you the "Spider legs" effect where the lash gets so loaded with mascara that it starts to kink and get goopy and nasty on the ends. Not good!

Pretty good mascara but it flakes some and Maybelline tests on animals so I won't buy again

This mascara is great if you want a bit more thickness. I really like it. The only bad thing was it made my eyes red because of how thick it was (getting in my eyes). but the packaging is very pretty, :)

I wanted this mascara so very badly after stumbling upon a YouTube review of it, but was let down that it wasn't available in the U.S. at the time. When it was finally released here, I jumped at the chance to buy it. I love the effect it gives my lashes. Perfect for nights out!
