Adequate but not very memorable drugstore level purchase.
The curved brush takes a bit of practice so you don't accidentally get mascara on your eyelid. I can see it drying out after 4-6 weeks use.
OK for a cheap experiment, but it doesn't live up to its "Falsies" hype.

I like my lashes voluminous, so I bought this (yes, I fell for the television commercial!) It really does make your lashes super-long, and two coats can get some volume, but I don't love it for volume. It makes them look long, but if you try to get volume it just looks awkwardly clumpy and begins to flake. It is always very watery (thus lack of volume) and takes a while to dry. Basically, if you want super long lashes...get this mascara! If you want volume, try something else!

I heard a lot of rave about this mascara, and a lot of people in my school uses it. I was skeptical about it first because, maybelline mascaras are popular. Especially the yellow tube one, "The colossal" That one I did not liked! It did nothing to my lashes!. I Admit I am asian with lashes that are long but not thick. I always wanted to bring out my lashes and no mascared worked for me, even the lashblast! Then I gave in and went to buy the Falsies and after two coats BAM! AWESOME LASHES! I couldn't believed how nice my lashes looked! VOLUME and LENGTH! True to its words. Everyday I get compliments on how pretty my eyes looks now! Nobody could see how~ They kept wondering I looked diffrent and prettier haha~

Applying the mascara I would use my right hand and put the mascara on my left lash first and wiggle it a little while putting the first coat, then go back to the bottle grab another coat and use my left hand and put it on my right lashes with a little wiggle motion. then do dip into bottle for second coat for the left lash then vice versa. Hope this helps.

I got the version non-waterproof Blackest Black. I choose blackest black because I love dark colored mascara! Black drama Im not fond of, It's just I guess not my taste.

- lengthens
- Volumize
- False effect
- Dries quickly.

- Clumps! (need to use a lashes brush to separate and get rid of clumping)
- Flakes!

The cons is not really my concern though cause all mascara I used tend to flakes or clump up I'm not sure why!

This mascara is my favorite. Use it everyday. I heard all the rave about lashblast and HATEd it. And when they discontinued my favorite maybelline mascara which was the intense XXL, i needed to find a new one. This is it. It really makes me look like I have fake lashes, but it doesn't look fake. I have long and pretty thick lashes as it is, but this lengthens and volumizes better than ANY mascara I've ever used. It is quite a wet mascara, but i hate ones that are dry. I like the types of mascaras that are super volumizing and lengthening, and not so much defining ones which i feel lashblast is. So if you want tons of volume and length, get this. If you love mascara's like may hate this!

I don't like this stuff AT ALL. Doesn't do a thing for me. I have pretty long lashes already and I thought this would add a little more ooph...not. Great marketing, though.

Oh my goodness what an amazing mascara. Whenever I need mascara I go straight to maybelline and am never dissapointed. Every time they bring out a new mascara it's always a new and improved version of the old one. I thought the colossal was my HG mascara, until I tried this one. I will only ever move from this mascara if they bring out another one. It's absolutely amazing. Completely lash transforming. Whenever I put this on I can really see the difference. I look at my eyes in pictures and my top eyelashes look like I have eyeliner on my top lid from afar, because my eye lashes look so full and thick! Wow. Absolutely amazing.

I love how volumized it makes my lashes, and I was surprised that it wasn't that clumpy. It can flake after a long day but thats expected in any mascara. I will be repurchasing this!

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.
