I was pleased to find that there was a waterproof version of The Falsies, so I immediately went out to purchase it. This mascara in no way gives me fake looking eyelashes (MUFE's Aqua Smoky Lash is the only mascara I have found that does), but this is still a good mascara for the price. The Falsies does an excellent job at lengthening my eyelashes, but could use work with volumizing and holding curl. It's good for throwing it on if you just want to add a little 'oomph' to your lashes. Plus, the purple tube is gorgeous!

I wouldn't say this actually gives you the "falsies" look. Lash Stylist did that! Bring that back!
Anyways, I found this product to work on 1 eye and not the other because of the way the bristles slant (I'll post a pic)
It was also quite a weighty mascara, you can definitely feel you are wearing it.
I wouldn't buy it again because of the fact it makes one eye look bad and I prefer things to look symmetrical!

I've been wearing this mascara everyday since I got it. I do have to say that it does not look like I'm wearing falsies one bit! However, it gives my lashes nice length, decent volume, and it holds a curl (probably due to the curved blush). I have it in Blackest Black and it is a great deep black, living up to the shade name. The only slight problem is that it can be kind of difficult to get enough on your brush, especially since you can only use that one curved side to actually apply it. I usually have to dunk in twice to get my lashes coated to my liking. However, since it's so cheap and Maybelline is very often on BOGO, I'm not going to complain too much. Great every day mascara and I will definitely buy again.
UPDATE: Upping my review to 5 stars, as I've played around with this and it's now my HG mascara. I first use the "under" side of the spoon to load product on, then use the brush the normal way to lengthen and curl. The result is whispy, curly lashes! Love it!

This has got to be 1 of my top 3 mascaras. I've only started using it for about 4 days & I've had compliments every day thus far. A few people really did ask if I was wearing false lashes! Love the product... just wish it came in a waterproof formula. This one tends to flake a bit.

This mascara does give GREAT lashes, not clumpy and very full looking. However, the brush is a pain to use and I don't care for it. Otherwise the formula is really good. I will stick with Colassal for everyday, however this would be ok when I was taking my time to get ready for a night out and not worried about easier application in a short time!

This product left my lashes feeling extremely stiff, and not any better than any other mascara that I've used. I've never worn false lashes before, but I can't imagine that they look like this. Also, the brush is extremely large, which for me causes extra mascara to get on my eyelids. It also takes a long time to dry, which is somewhat of a pain. I won't finish the tube and will probably throw it away.

This is surprisingly good. I'm a Full n Soft girl, but after reading the reviews decided to give this a try. It absolutely does create lush, long, curled lashes much like falsies. But, I have sensitive eyes and for quite a while after I apply it, my eyes burn and sting. It hasn't gotten into my eyes at this point, so it must be the fumes being released as it dries. Too bad, because I really do love the effect...I'll give it a few more chances and update.

I bought this product on a whim because it was on sale, with no expectations at all. I usually use h/e (my hg is EL magnascopic) but I'm always open to trying something new. This BLEW ME AWAY!! I was simply delighted with the result from the very first application. The result was dramatic without clump, without flakes and without difficulties in removal. This may be as good as my all time HG...I will need to give it a bit more time to decide that but for sure this will now hold a permanent (and much more economical) spot in my make-up case.

I was really hoping this mascara would live up to its name. Unfortunately for me, it didn't. The formula is really wet and the brush is a bit awkward. No biggie. But, I had to really layer this on to get any kind of volume. In doing so, it weighed down my lashes and killed my curl. I didn't get much length either. Towards the end of the day, it began to flake and irritate my eyes. On the plus side, blackest black is truly dark and this mascara didn't give me racoon eyes.But my cons outweigh my pros so I will not be repurchasing. I've read that it works well with a primer underneath but I just don't have time for that extra step.

I absolutely LOVE this mascara! I have naturally long, thick lashes, and this mascara lengthens them to the point that they are just about touching my eyebrows. I don't notice extensive thickening (not like lashblast), but it really does fan out my lashes creating that false-lash look. My only complaint is that you have to work fast or it will clump, and it does flake, but only after numerous hours. Will definitely repurchase over and over!!
