I am usually loyal to Max Factor mascaras as they are reasonably priced and make my eyelashes look great. I bought the Maybelline falsies mascara on the off chance as I needed a new one and the only place I could get to at the time was Asda (who don't stock Max Factor). I was pleasantly surprised with Falsies as I wasn't expecting it to be better than my usual mascaras but it WAS! It instantly lifts eyelashes right up and spreads them out into a lovely fan. It doesn't clump and it has lasted me ages (I've had this for 2-3 months now and it's still not dried up even with daily use).

It does make my eyelashes look longer and gives them more volume and I love it. It's just slightly difficult to apply because, like everyone says, it does clump a lot and the end of the wand has a lot of mascara on it so you really have to work with it, but it's nothing you can't fix.

Pros:
-does what it says, volumizes
-does give the impression of "false" lashies
-make eyelashes very dark and visible
-definitely waterproof, doesn't give racoon eyes
Cons:
-clumps like CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZY
-looks like you attached spider legs on your eyelashes
-Everytime I take the mascara out of the tube, there's always too much product at the end of the brush, making it hard to reach out to the edges of my lashes.

Overall, I think it's okay. I recommend to buy this product if your lashes are naturally long.
My lashes, however, are stubby and barely visible. (I'm asian, I basically have the stereotypical "asian" lashes)
It's okay, I like applying it on my lower lashes because it does darken,volumize, and lengthen them, but if I put even the smallest amount too much, it looks really clumpy and ugly.
Personally, I think in all the review pictures of this mascara, the lashes look extremely clumpy.

There are other products out there, I don't recommend this because it was pretty expensive.

It sucked. It didn't do anything, just made my lashes clump and it irritated my eyes. I wouldn't recommened it or re buy it.

The product is nice and dark and I am able to re coat lot before it dries (then you cannot re apply). The wand itself helps with the curl and coating each lash...then I flip it over to "push" more product into areas I want. I think this concept works better than the ball-tip because you don't get an overload of product on one end which will only clump. The curl usually doesn't stay though.

I have tried so many mascaras, and this by far is my favorite. It gives me length and volume, where other drugstores(except maybe l'oreal) just don't compare. I am a diehard maybelline mascara fan and i just love how quickly I get volume with falsies. Try it at least!

I really like this mascara. I have the waterproof version. To me this is a drugstore version of my favorite Blinc mascara. This product has fibers that create the "falsies" effect. You have to carefully apply this to avoid clumping of the fibers. I like to wipe off a lot of the product when I take the wand out of the tube to avoid placing too much onto my lashes. Also I found you must apply your second coat before the first one dries. Once it is dry, it holds a curl and I have no smearing or smudging. It stays on until you remove it. You must remove it carefully with an eyemakeup remover (I use Neutrogena Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover). If you just wash your face you will have black racoon smudges under your eyes that won't come off. Also you may end up with fibers in your eyes if you just try to wash it off with regular cleanser without breaking it down first with eyemakeup remover.

Not sure if I got a dud product, but the mascara has little hairs in it that I'm guessing is where the "falsies" effect comes from. Those little hairs (I think) are intended to latch onto your actual lashes to give the longer effect. In fact, the only thing that little hairs do is get in my eyes! :-( I didn't read any other reviews to see if anyone else had this problem, so not sure if this is normal. Needless to say, I won't be buying this product again.

Unfortunately, the green and pink "Great Lash" product, although loved by many, also smears on my eyes after a few hrs of wear. :-(

Though expensive, Lancome Definicils is a great alternative mascara!

I remember my 1st Maybelline mascara was that pink/green bottle one all Vogues across the planet raved about. I could never understand why - it clumped, smelled strongly and irritated my eyes, and would flake after a couple of hours. So I reluctantly bought this but I am happy I did. I have normal length lashes that curl mostly under any mascara so I cannot comment on its capacities of holding a curl (I never use a curler) but I can say that this mascara makes my lashes stay curled, higher than other DS mascaras I tried. If I wiggle the wand it can clump but if I use as it obviously is intended to be used (wand is almost flat on one side so you can push it in to the roots and then twist it upwards, a lot like Bourjois's Clubbing mascara, but more easy to use than the Bourjois one because the Falsies' wand is also curved) it really makes my lashes look great. I love the wand, it does not flake out, and it does not smell at all (may have perfume in it, but it doesn't smell that you can sense) I can push it very close to my roots and it does not irritate my eyes at all. Only one complaint - I wished the formula was even blacker, since this one is black just not that jet black super black kind of black if you know what I mean. It works for me and it does volumize and does not flake on me (use it for lower lashes). Great for daily use especially for the price. I like that itsfluid enough, not dry, and after using it I have experienced zero lash fallout that some mascara may cause on me (like Benefit Bad Gal). For me all the tricks in it (the wand) work and I congrat Maybelline on actually improving from their so famous but so crapy pink/green stuff I never understood or liked.

This mascara is useless, it did not give me the effect it said it would. its just like every other mascara, except that it has a curved wand. i surely wouldnt buy this product again.
