I love this mascara! It doesn't give me "false-looking lashes" but I still really like it - adds a lot of length + volume! Their blackest black shade wasn't super black when I first started using it but after a few uses it really begins to darken up. I love the curved brush and how there is some flexibility built into the wand to grab every lash. I curl my lashes once then apply and sometimes I have to recurl again but my lashes always look great with this mascara. Doesn't clump or flake, and I usually have problems with flaking with Maybelline mascaras. I also really like the packaging :) This mascara is definitely a keeper!

Obviously this product will not give you the look that the models on the commericals or posters look like. But does any product give you the look that they say it does? I would say not exactly. But I seriously was impressed with this product. It does a nice job of making your lashes longer, darker and fanned out looking. Not so much on the volume but I was still happy with it. I love the brush even though it was a little weird at first. I had no clumps what so ever and I didnt think that it was watery like others had mentioned. As for the price, it was pretty low and resonable. Overall I am super happy with this mascara!

Drug store mascara brings with it a certain expectation. You cannot expect the effect of Yves Saint Laurent Faux Cils with Maybelline. I think every time the hype tries to convince you otherwise, you end up disappointed. And with this mascara, this is the case. I think it is OK for a drug store mascara, but I have experienced better results with Full n' Soft. This mascara is very wet. I consider it equivalent to Maybelline Great Lash. Very dark and very wet, and as a result, it smears like crazy! Thanks, but I'll buy Full n' Soft over this mascara any day.

This is awesome mascara!! In the summer, I found it couldn't withstand the heat, but now in the fall, I LOVE IT!! I get the longest, thickest lashes I have ever had!! I tried Diorshow and HATED it and it was $31.
For about $6, this stuff is great!!

I had high hopes for this Mascara. I liked the Brush and the formula was OK, but as the day wore on; the mascara wore off. There was literally flakes down to my cheeks & on the side of my nose. During work, I had to routinely run to the ladies room and remove the mess. I was really disappointed.

It was okay. I was in desperate need for a new mascara and saw this one in a store display so I decided to try it. It was only $5.47 so I was not expecting a lot. I like the length and volume it gives my lashes. but it is very dark and a little clumpy. It wasnt the worst mascara, but it wasnt the best either. I will continue to use it untill I need to buy a new mascara but would not buy this again.

Serious TRASH. This mascara is nothing but a huge goopy mess. takes forever to dry and the brush is ok, more gimmicky if anything. but no matter how much i wipe from the brush or try to comb it out, it doesn't look good. Unless of course, you are going for 3 huge black spikes for lashes.

This mascara did a really good job of lengthening my eyelashes, but I didn't notice it doing much of anything for volume. I do like this mascara quite a bit and I would rebuy it, which I rarely ever do for mascaras (too many options to try!). I did notice as well that it seemed to fan them out quite nicely. Overall, it's definitely worth trying for the price!

EDIT:
Change my rating from 4 to 1 :( Really didn't like how this built up on my lashes and was impossible to get off, even with a good eye makeup remover. Yuck!

I thought this mascara was alright..not great though. it did do a good job at fanning out my lashes, which i havent noticed with any of my other mascaras before. the maybelline colossal clumped like crazy, but this does not clump as much, although it does clump. the packaging is super cute though:]

LOVE LOVE LOVE! Maybelline never disappoints when it comes to mascaras. The Falsies, by itself, is not HG, but when paired with LashBlast Fusion, it is a powerful combo! (I use LashBlast Fusion first, then follow with The Falsies) I love the curved brush, I use the bristled side of The Falsies for its first coat, then the non-bristled side for subsequent coats (hope that made sense). I looked for it online and I could only find it on their UK website. I hope they continue making this product in the U.S. though. It's a dream. =) I highly recommend this, ladies!
