this mascara was clump city! the formula is very wet and smudged on my lower lash line like crazy. thankfully it was only around $5-6 so i didn't waste a ton of money.

I guess my clue should have been in the name... It works if you want big spidery stuck together fake obviously wearing a tonne of mascara lashes. Also quite a wet formula which I always manage to get on my eyelids and smear everywhere. Not really my thing but have used worse.

I bought this mascara in waterproof about 2 months ago.
PROS:
-volumizes lashes
-holds curl well
-lengthens lashes
-very pigmented
-doesn't clump
-the tube has a stopper so not too much product gets on the wand

CONS:
-smudges near my bottom lashes & eye lids ( I HAVE OILY LIDS) no so waterproof for me
-can be a bit sticky once applied, but it dries

I would by this product again if it didn't smudge. I still use it though, but when I do- I apply a translucent powder on my lids and under my eyes so it doesn't smudge as much.

I love the Colossal but when Falsies came out I just had to tried it and I'm really Happy with it ... My lashes never looked better before. Ot does flake a little bit but just if you wait in between coats .. If you apply all of it at once work perfect.

I <3 it.

Dark, sooty lashes? Sign me up. Lots of length and volume for my noob lashes? EFF YES, I WANT! After not being very impressed with the original Falsies, I decided to give this a go. All I can say is that this was yet, another fail. Even more so than the original Falsies. Sure, my lashes were dark. Sure, it lengthened and volumized my lashes some. Did it clump and flake? Yes indeed. Hence, why I will not be buying this one again.

I LOVE this mascara. It is my go-to mascara and I wear it everyday. It gives me the effect that I go for, which are longer, thicker, and darker lashes.:)

(Reviewing the WATERPROOF Black Drama)
The Black Drama mascara is supposed to be a deeper richer black color than the original. Cute lace detail on the packaging.

I am sorely disappointed by this mascara. Unlike the regular Falsies, I get some curl with a little bit of volume and virtually no added length. I tend to ask a lot from my mascaras but after the results I got with the Falsies, anything less can't measure up. More importantly, I notice LESS dramatic color from the Black Drama mascara. It dries to a peculiar grey-ish black finish; not at all the pitch black result I wanted. The only thing I did like about this version of the Falsies is that it dries to a soft, flexible finish. If you use waterproof mascara, you know that it often has a crunchy, stiff effect once dried. I'm not bothered by that feeling but it was nice to experience a little more flexibility from a waterproof mascara.

All in all, I use the Falsies Black Drama when I want a more natural look or I only use it on my lower lashes. It's definitely not the best. It just gives me less satisfactory results than the original.

I bought this mascara after a fave vlogger raved about it. She said it makes your lashes look as if they're fake so of course I had to try it. My lashes are thin, curly and sparse and I'm looking for something that gives me longer, fuller, thicker lashes. I bought two mascaras & tried them both with Falsies on one eye & Benefit's they're real on the other. Falsies did not compare to They're Real in my opinion. They're Real did a great job at lengthening & thickening & separating while Falsies gave me a wispy look but my lashes looked thin still & failed to separate. I posted a review with comparison pics on my blog & the difference is staggering. I tossed this mascara into my drawer of barely used products.

WATERPROOF
This looked good the first day I tried it. I didn't really see much volume, but they did look longer and darker. The mascara started getting clumpy after a month for me though :( I gave this mascara a break for like a few weeks after opening, it looked terrible on the second try! Really clumpy and spidery. Also very difficult to get off, this really weighed my lashes down :( It's also expensive for the quality imo, for sure not buying again.

REGULAR
I wanted to try this again, and decided to get the regular instead of waterproof. The regular mascara was way better for me. Less clumping and better volume :) This didn't weigh my lashes down, but was still difficult to wash off. It was alright to me, but I probably won't buy this again. Pricey for an OKAY drugstore mascara imo.

First of all, this is a lot different than the original Falsies. The original is more drier (something I love, I hate wet mascaras). The black drama is more clumpy, and I hated it at first. If you buy this mascara, and hate it at first, wait a few weeks. It's dried a lot now, so it's easier to work with. The flakes a lot though. Meh.
