Enthousiastic comments I recieved when I was using this product.
I am using it as a mascara-base. This mascara is not the best thickening mascara I ever used. At the end of the day flakes fell on my cheeks. The brush is too thick, that it is not only on my lashes but also on my skin.
This mascara isn't flaking when you use it in combination with another mascara.
I won't buy this mascara again.

- Super long lashes
- Super thick lashes
- Dry's quickly
- Easy to use wand
- Have nothing bad to say yet.
- My favourite mascara, quite possibly the best I have ever used.
I use the black non waterproof one.
Large, thick, black eyelashes, only needed a few coats. I love it.
I have nothing bad to say right at this moment, except that it really does look like you have fake lashes on, but if you are like me, thats exactly why you love it.

I had high expectation for this mascara but am really disappointed.
It does separate lashes nicely but I find it very difficult to build up. The lengthening and thickening power is average.
It does not hold the curl too well either. The biggest problem is that it smudge on my eyes so quickly!!!
I would say that if I found this mascara 5 years ago I would probably like it but now so many mascaras works much better.

I got this a couple of weeks ago, just really out of curiosity and because it was on offer at £6. I've never really been a fan of Maybelline mascaras, and didn't really expect much of it as it just looked like another gimicky thing. When I first tried it out I wasn't impressed at all, but now after using it more often, I absolutely adore it!! It gives good length and after a few coats - great volume! My lashes are really fine and short but this did wonders for them, even better than my all time fave Lancome Hypnose :)! And although I don't usually go for the big brushes because they seem to chunky for my baby lashes, I actually really like the brush on this as it seems to get into all your lashes really really well. I also found that if you apply a thin coat of another mascara first before you start with this one, it gives an amazing result! It doesn't clump over the top of the other mascara and the volume you get is amazing! I tried this out a wee while ago but had to remove it all and start over before I went out because the result was just too much for daytime :) Anyway I will definitely be buying this mascara again, and strongly reccomend it as it's on offer at alot of places now :)

I thought it was a waste of money the first time I used it as it clumped and basically went all over the place...Used it again a couple of weeks later and I completely adore it now, the brush is a bit tricky to get used to but it doesn't clump anymore and it manages to reach every single lash. It doesn't quite achieve the 'false lash effect' it advertises but it makes my eyelashes notably longer and thicker. Overall a good mascara and I would buy it again, but not the false lash effect I was hoping for!

This is a good drugstore mascara, which is worth the price (although I got in a swap, its on offer at the moment for £5.99 and the usual price is £7.99).
*Medium formula, not too runny
*Good curved wand
*No flaking through out the day
*Easy to add layers without it clumping
* Adds both good amount of volume and length
* Actually doesnt create a "false" look but a great natural "full eyelash" look
*Curled my lashes itself which holds most of the day
*Easily removed at night
* A little smudging by the end of the day but nothing I cant cope with and I DIDNT look like a panda
*Wish the formula was a tiny bit thicker, it would be easier to layer it up
Conclusion: If you dont want to spend crazy money on a mascara, but want good length and volume give this a try, esp if its on offer anywhere.
Its good but there are also other good drugstore mascaras out there so dont kill yourself trying to get hold of some....L'Oreal Collagen Mascara is really good and a good substitute for Bad Gal.
I would re-purchase this :-)
EDIT: I got Falsies in swap from the USA and I noticed that the formula differs slightly from the European version (I have been to Germany and Italy and their version is the same as the UK one). The packaging is slightly different too - the USA one does not have a point on the top of the tube...but importantly the formula of the USA one is thinner (IMO)and I rather prefer the European one...just a heads up :-)

I needed a new mascara and saw lots of references to this in the beauty pages of magazines so I thought I'd give it a go.... didn't live up to my hopes though. I found the "spoon"-like brush awkward, got clumps, lashes not nearly as long or as thick as when I use other brands (partially because you have to be so careful with the brush, so s not to get mascara everywhere BUT on your lashes) and finally, at the end of the day, it had flaked down onto the top of my cheeks.... maybe if I got better with the brush it would be better but I couldn't be bothered when so many other brands get it right with less trouble.
Sorry it didn't work out. Will not be repurchasing

Nice packaging, very eye catching. Even the name caught my eye! However upon using it I was disappointed. It wasn't terrible but it didn't give me a 'false' lash look and since I have been acheiving this with other brands I will pass on buying this again.

This is a great mascara! I normally wear the waterproof version of all mascaras otherwise I end up with 'panda' eyes, but this seems to stay in place even though its not officially waterproof. Love it and will repurchase.

Love it, Love it, Love it. I have received so many comments about how great my lashes look. I love using mascara, I have quite good lashes anyway but this does what it says on the tin. They make them so full and look fantastic with a brilliant curl. My friend hated it until i showed her how to use the brush. There is a picture on the side of the tube, also do not re-apply as this is what makes it clumpy.
