I purchased this product after I hear people raving and raving on about Maybelline Falsies Mascara!

I purchased this and I didn't like it.
It DOES make you look like you have false eye lashes on. The problem is after using it for a week, whenever I applied this mascara, it was very clumpy. When I wore it, my eyelashes were hard and very itchy. I lost a few eyelashes wearing this mascara.

I would say stay clear of this mascara. Again it DOES make your eyelashes look like you are wearing false eyelashes. HOWEVER, it is clumpy, and made my eyelashes fall out!

Ok so the reason why i bought this was because my friend had Falsies but in black drama? so I asked my mom to go out and buy it she bought the regular one instead of the black drama one . the way i found wearing this mascara is by using 1 swipe of lash blast covergirl then 2 swipes( take your time while putting it on) of falsies mascara . :) packaging quality is perfect . its cheap . the only reason why i didnt give it five "stars" is because using it alone without lashblast under it it doesnt give that WOW factor.

I'm constantly looking for a mascara that is perfect- I still haven't found one but this is close. The brush is not great (one lippie off) as it tends to grab blobs of the mascara so I need to remove those before applying or I end up with tarantula lashes! But, with a little care over application this really does make my eyelashes look pretty impressive without looking ridiculous. I've now abandoned my Benefit Bad Gal mascara- not enough impact- for this much cheaper one and I'm happy with the results. It's also easy to remove at the end of the day too which is a major bonus for me. A very good mascara for the price.

I have been told COUNTLESS times that Volum' Express The Falsies was the mascara to have so I went out and bought some. When I applied the only difference was that my lashes were blacker and thicker. I wasn't pleased with the result and won't be buying it again.

I like this mascara a lot... not enough that I would buy it again, though. It clumps a little if you put on too many coats, but I think thats what gives the "false lashes look".

Recently I have seen commercials for the new mascara for Maybelline called The Falsies Volum Express, so after the million time that I have seen this commercial I decided to go out and purchase this product to see what the hype was all about. I purchased this from Walmart in very black.

I have been wearing this mascara for the past five days and I really do like it, it does lengthen my lashes a lot which is good for me since I like my eyes to look dramatic most of the time. The commercial advertises that if you wear this mascara your lashes will be as long as if your were wearing false eyelashes. However I would not go that far, they are long but my lashes actually look longer from wearing my Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara and remember divas that this is just my opinion. This mascara is very easy to wash off which is a major plus and it does go on very smooth. If you are in the market for a new mascara then definitely gives this a try it might just be the right mascara for you. However I am still in love with Maybelline's Lash Stiletto mascara (still my favorite).

I love this, it is my current fave!! Makes my lashes look so much longer, and sufficiently thicker. I haven't found this mascara to clump at all. Brush works great if it is used correctly. The tube also lasts for ages.

This is my current fav, HG mascara. I've gone thru two of them already. One tube lasts me 6 months with daily use and i usually get it on sale for $5.99 CAD. I reach for this over my Lancome L'extreme, virtuose, hypnose, and benefit bad gal mascaras. The trick is to build the formula while the product is still wet on your lashes. You have to wisp the wand at the tips of your lashes and you can see it build on itself and extend your lashes 1-2mm giving you that false lash effect. Do NOT let it dry b/w coats. I used to wear falsies all the time, but this mascara gives me a similar dramatic look without the effort. Now i save falsies for special events and wknds out. This mascara doesn't smudge or flake. Btw, I HATE the waterproof version. Its so clumpy and makes my lashes feel so brittle and doesn't hold a curl. But the original formula is wonderful, I will repurchase again and again.

Gave me a lot of volume! Some clumps when first using it, but with the business card trick, every application was clump-free! Love the dramatic look it gave me :)

This is my favorite mascara, and I have tried quite a few, up to and including Mac, Dior, and Lancome.

Make sure when you are applying it you have the scooped side facing up. That is how they recommend you use it, and it is really only an excellent mascara when you do it that way.

Other then that, I have not noticed any flaking (and I wear this everyday) or smudging (and i have extremely oily skin).
