Ewww. This is probably the worst mascara Ive ever tried. Ive used it four times and each time I got gross spidery, clumpy, flaky, disgusting lashes. This is a horrible mascara. I got no volume or length either.
Seriously dont buy it.

Generally I dont like Maybelline mascaras. They're pretty much the low end of drugstore mascaras. But I went ahead and bought this one because it promised a false eyelash look, and I love dramatic lashes. When I first tried it on I was impressed. It gave my lashes alot of volume and a good amount of length. I wouldn’t say my lashes looked like falsies, though. It was more like an upgraded version of original Volume Express. One 'con' I should mention that really turned me off of this mascara is that I noticed that if you let this mascara semi-dry before your next coat, it clumps like crazy. And this stuff dries really fast. And I also noticed that the tips of my lashes would slightly curve down. It was weird, and after it happened on several occasions, I tossed this in the trash. If you want dramatic lashes you have to try L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes. That one is amazing. Of all the mascaras I use, I always return to it.

I decided to try this mascara, because I love that winged, separated look with a nice amount of length and volume. After trying this, my lashes looked quite opposite than what I expected. On the model, the mascara had just the look that I wanted to achieve. When I tried it, it clumped immediately and did not lengthen my lashes. Bad, thick consistency as well. Needless to say, I was disappointed. I usually like the slanted brushes. I remember owning one my Cover Girl (Wondercurl?) and then there was one by Avon a while back called Curly Girl, which also worked beautifully. I keep this Mascara as a "spare," but it is definitely not an everyday mascara for me. I would not purchase this mascara gain. Even for the price, there are way better mascaras out there.

I Love this mascara!! the best out it make my lashes so long and flared out. Definitely would purchase again!

Terrible, actually the worst mascara I've tried. I had tried the regular Falsies before and liked it. I thought this would be as good, if not better. This actually made my typically long looking lashes look shorter and straighter. Also, it flaked really bad within an hour or so of putting it on.

Mabelline's Volum'Express Mascara (very black) really insinuates my thick, long eyelashes. Ladies and Gents what I recommend before using a volumizing and/or lengthening mascara is to first use a conditioning mascara which is very healthy for your lashes (e.g. Neutrogena's Volumizing Mascara- absolutely amazing, will bring out each eye lash strand. Neutrogena's Nourishing Eyeliner also glides on and gives definition more than any other eyeliner I've tried). I then finish it off with Mabyelline's Volum'Express Mascara- this way you can avoid clumping and you'll have an overall natural look to your lashes. Revlon's Volumizing Mascara is also awesome if you would like to avoid clumping at all, but I love Mabelline's Volum-Express too because it adds curl definition to my lashes and the brush really bends like a spoon as you're applying your mascara. As far as removing my mascara, I use Mary Kay's Oil-free Make Up Remover which is very gentle on the eyes and lashes. I hope this review helps.

This was an emergency mascara purchase after I discovered that I left my mascara at home while visiting family for a week. My cousin uses this and likes it so we went to Target and picked this up so I wouldn't have to go bare lashed. Normally my favorite mascaras (the ones I use daily) are Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill and YSL Faux Cils.
My only hope for this one was that I'd get super dark lashes with some volume. It was decent for a week, but the amount of flaking is terrible and they were irritating whenever they got into my eyes. That and the smell are the worst qualities. Also, as for a flare... I can't imagine how a mascara formula can offer flare. Technique/application can, or individual falsies maybe, but not the mascara itself.
This has a dry formula, which I prefer to the more wet versions, so that was a plus. It actually holds a curl pretty well. My lashes are already fairly long and I didn't notice that it added much length, which is fine by me. The volume was average and I would have liked to see more impact. I couldn't build the volume because it clumps very easily. I liked that it washed off easily with my regular cleanser.
Overall this was better than I expected but I tossed it out as soon as the week was over.

I liked this mascara. It gave dramatic lashes and was easy to take off. My only complaint is it flakes from use after awhile.

HATE this stuff. Regular Falsie was pretty good. Heard this stuff was better, bought at Target for under five dollars, but its AWFUL! wish I would have bought my Voluminous. This stuff FLAKES

I got this because I *adore* the regular waterproof Falsies, so I figured the flared would be even better, and a little easier to remove.
I am SORELY disappointed in this product. The brush is different, but not in a good way. It doesn't give my lashes a good shape at ALL. I have really long lashes, and this gives them zero curl. And it flakes and smears really badly.
I'm going back to the regular waterproof falsies.

I tried this in hopes it would perform better than the original falsies which I loved. It did not. It's pretty terrible in fact because it clumps and gives that horrible spider lashes look. It also irritated my eyes and I can't stand the horrible chemical roses scent.

Like the other reviewers, I so wanted to like this mascara, but I didn't. The formula is not bad at all, but the brush basically sucks. It's flimsy and clumps it on. I used my L'Oreal Double Extend brush and it worked pretty good though. But what's the use of buying a mascara if you have to use another brush to make it work. Soooo, guess I'm still L'Oreal Double Extend Lash Boosting Mascara's biggest fan. Because so far, I've found nothing to compare to it's wonder!

I wanted to love this product, however I decided to try something other than L'oreal Voluminous and this product doesn't deliver. Not as dark as L'oreal and I feel like it really doesn't create as much 'volume" as it claims. I also tried 4 coats and it still looked like I had nothing on. On a good note, it does not clump or flake or smudge until I am ready to take it off, that's pretty good for a mascara. I'm also not a fan of the brush that tends to "bend" when I put makeup on. I like a stiff brush because I feel like I have more control over the application of the mascara

Why do I ever stray from Voluminous Carbon Black??? This is just "okay". Certainly isn't black enough and takes a bit to build up. Back to L'Oreal for me.

This works really well for gals like me with already somewhat thick eyelashes. It does provide a little volume, but it clumps a lot if you try to build much more than a few coats. As for length, holy mother of god, my lashes were so long and curled and noticeable after one coat!! I didn't even touch the eyelash curler. As far as drugstore mascaras go, this one has been superb for me.

I've had really good results with all the Volume Express mascaras but me being a contact lens wearer i opt for the waterproof versions. Some people say wearing waterproof makes tgeir eyelashes very brittle but removing my eye makeup with pure sweet almond oil helps condition my lashes to avoid this. Falsies flared really makes my lashes look fuller and longer with only two coats. I've used other expensive mascaras and this beats them by far. Falsies Flared is my HG mascara!!!!

Wore this mascara today. i love the way my lashes look after ive applied it. Gives great volume? and length. Makes my lashes luscious. doesnt flake. No complaints here.

Tried everything from very expensive brands to drug store brands and could never achieve that nice neat long full falsies effect quiet to the level that I wanted. Until this one. This is by far my favorite mascara I have ever tried for a nice full long falsies effect. It is also the only mascara thats actually allowed my lashes to stay flared for that sexy doe eyed look.
I only use it for when I need to look absolutely fabulous though as my lashes tend to fall out unless I use the larenim mascara. Which sucks as it smudges but makes my lashes grow. And then when fabulousity is called for Maybeline Falsies flared comes out to play.

So, a lot of the comments for this seem pretty harsh. What you need to take into consideration, is that advertising is an exaggeration of the products actual effects. This is true for most things, especially mascaras. This mascara has a really unique brush, and because of it's shape, I cut my routine into two steps. I curl my lashes and then use two coats of this, each application consisting of a swipe first with the concave side to really distribute a good amount of mascara on the lashes (as a tip, hold a mirror beneath your nose while you apply your mascara and hold the wand at the base of your lashes for a few moments before following through to the tips...this will create a really volumous base and add lift for a more wide-open eye look), followed by a few quick swipes through my lashes with the other side of the brush to smooth out any clumps and to build up the length. I think this mascara holds the curl very well, and if used properly, will certainly give you a flared out look. The blackest black will not give you particularly black lashes, and although it will give the lashes volume and drama, it doesn't quite compare to falsies. If you're looking for that extreme look, go to a Sephora and invest in a pair and a makeup artist will teach you how to apply them for free. All in all, this is a great drugstore find and I will absolutely repurchase as a cheap everyday alternative to my usual BeneFit mascara. :]

I really like this version better than the original Falsies or Falsies Black Drama. The original Falsies has the tendency to get really dry and clumpy really fast, though it isn't totally terrible. Black Drama is terrible, but that's a different review. Falsies Flared isn't too dry or clumpy or too thick and waxy, so it is kinda the Goldilocks of The Falsies line. I get good definition and a bit of that "flare" that they advertise. It isn't over the top and dramatic, but I sincerely hope that we're all smart enough to realize that NO mascara ever will get our lashes alone to look like mascara ads. If you don't go in to it with unrealistic expectations of perfect lashes that look false without using false lashes then you won't be so disappointed. This is a very good drugstore mascara, but the reviews don't reflect that at all. It's too bad, the product is definitely worth a try.
