I love this mascara. It doesn't clump on me or flake maybe smudge a little on the lower lash line. For even better results I First apply a 2 coats of this mascara and then quickly separate and lenghten my lashes with the lash stiletto. Super good results.

I tried the original Falsies in WP and wasn't impressed but went out and got this based on the great reviews, which led me to think that the Black Drama version is somehow better than the original. For me, it was not the case. I bought the Falsies Black Drama in the non-waterproof version, which I thought was rather similar to the original but didn't hold a curl on my stick straight lashes as well as the WP version. The applicator is curved and not too big to work with and the bristles are the traditional kind not the plastic rubber stuff. I had to open the product and let it dry out for a week before it could sort of hold a curl. The formula was volumizing, not so much lengthening and clumped up a bit, which I don't mind as long as it made my lashes bit. However, if you keep putting more coats on the lashes really clump together and the product dries so that you can't even really get more on if you wanted to. Overall, this is just okay. I wasn't too impressed, as with the original Falsies.

Smudges, flakes and all the result i get, is panda eyes. My sister too. I won't repurchase again!

This mascara rules. It's a little messy and gloopy, the brush is big and awkward, but the results are totally worth it. Takes me from practically no lashes to mega lashes. Not for those who have any interest in looking "natural." Best of all it's not too wet and doesn't uncurl my lashes. (I always set the curl in my lashes with a light layer of dry/almost dead mascara before I apply the real thing but even this trick doesn't work if the second mascara is too wet.) I'm on my second tube and will probably stay with this until it's discontinued.

Bought this product thinking it would be the falsies just darker and more visible because i loved the length the regular falsies gave me but you couldnt see them cause they had no thickness. Well again let down this one must have a different brush cause this gave me no length and barley any thickness.

It's my favorite! when ever I try something new, I always come back to this one.
It gives the volume that I want, very black and no clumps. ( well, most of the time )

I love this product when I heard about it I thought here we go again another Mascara that they made a comercial for and the chick is wearing false lashes and they want you to think that her lashes are real. Now even though I know the chicks lashes in the comercial was fake this Mascara does do a trick on your lashes. They really give a false lash effect. They dont look like a dramatic fake lash but maybe a more natural fake lash. This is great I will buy this again and again this is my go to drug store Mascara!!!

A really good value mascara for under a tenner, although the application is a little tricky.
The brush picks up far too much mascara - I recommend using a tissue to remove most of it. Gives great buildable volume and length; a true blackest black colour; and dries quickly without smudging.
Can flake a little throughout the day.
A good everyday mascara.
