I hate this mascara. When I bought it I expected more from it since my cousin owns it and really likes it. I was really disappointed. My eyelashes are really long and really straight, so I have to curl my lashes. This mascara can't hold a curl at all! My lashes just start to droop and my eyes get really heavy. What makes this worse is that it clumps my lashes so I have to use an eyelash comb on it and it starts to flake! Too much product gets on the brush so I have to wipe it off and it makes a mess. I only used it a couple times and I can't wait until next month when I have to throw it out anyway and not think its was a waste of money.

This is horrible mascara! Such a waste of my $6 LOL... I tried it twice and threw it away immediately.

Everything about it is awful- the formula is sticky and makes your lashes clump together. The brush is weird and doesn't coat lashes well or make them thick as it claims. It is really hard to work with, makes your lashes stick together, smudges all over, smells funny...

I had heard some bloggers rave about this and always thought the purple packaging was pretty... whenever I stray from my long-loved L'real Volumnous I am ALWAYS sorry! Maybelline mascaras are AWFUL!

If you are looking for thick, long, full lashes buy L'real Volumnous original.... It's amazing!! Better than $30 mascaras! I have a few different Dior Show types, Benefit, Chanel, UD and the L'reoal is my favorite by far, doesn't dry out as fast and is MUCH cheaper! I buy a new one each month.

Does make eyes "pop" but does clump VERY badly.
For a waterproof mascara, it is very good though, one of the only ones I have found that actually is waterproof. Would most likely buy again.

I didn't think there was anything great about this mascara, it was just ok. I find that it has to be applied very slowly, otherwise it tends to clump the lashes together. It also seemed to make my lashed stick straight out, instread of holding the curl. If you want to apply multiple coats, you need to do so right away or it won't work out well.

i think this is an ok mascara. it has its pros and cons and i wouldn't describe it as good or bad.

PROS:
- First mascara I've tried the holds my curled lashes instead of making them droop straight down after application
- Seperates somewhat well
- Stays pretty much all day
- Doesn't flake, even when i rub my eyes a lot
- Lengthens lashes
- Can take a lash that is sticking the wrong way and move it to the position I want it to be
- Lashes look the same at the end of the day except curl has fallen a tiny bit

CONS:
- Doesn't volumize at all, clumps lashes together so they look like one lash
- feels hard on my lashes and sometimes it annoys me so much i pull it off with my lashes
- quite messy brush with a lot of product on it, not a very good stopper
- Clumpy

I like that it holds a curl and lasts long but i just don't like the look or feel of my lashes when using this. If it made my lashes look good i would absolutely love this mascara.

sometimes i will use this as a topcoat on other mascaras before they have fully drooped so the curl stays held and i get a nice look to my lashes.

this works best when used with another mascara.

I liked the idea of having longer lashes so much that I forgot about the volume. This product made my eyelashes look like burnt trees. I started looking like some kind of possessed doll. This is really great for length but it makes your lashes stick together and look terrible

I hated this mascara with a passion the first time I put it on. I get that the curved wand is supposed to coat all your lashed but it only clumps on them. It doesn't even get all of them if your lashes don't curve the way the wand does. I've poked myself in the eye more than once trying to get the wand to work. I'll stick with my old standby - Great Lash.

I happen to be on a mission to find the most dramatic, high-intensity mascara on the market. I want the false lash look without having to applying lash glue to my eyes every single day. I want volume, lushness, and an amazing ability to hold a curl. In essence, I want bombshell lashes that make a sultry statement.


This mascara just doesn't fit that bill. The only statement it made was trashy party girl after too many drinks. I tried it with two different eye looks. It did give me volume, but as another reviewer suggested down below, it's almost as if there's little hairs in it or SOMETHING. One of them got stuck on top of my middle lashes, and I had to swipe it away.


Other than volume, Falsies is horrific. My lashes didn't look thinner, and in fact, the insane amount of clumping made them look sparser. I think I have decent eyelashes in general; dark, medium-length, and well spread out over my eye. This formula did nothing to maximize the density of my lashes at all. And the clumps and little streaks were terrible. The more I blinked and worked on my makeup, the more clumps would fall onto my cheeks. I could never go dancing and get sweaty while wearing this mascara; the fallout would be a nightmare to deal with almost instantly.


I'm mad at myself for wasting money on this one, with its cute fuschia-purple bottle and false promises! I bought Falsies because I didn't want to pay $24 for Benefit's They're Real mascara. Now I wish I had. Back to Walgreens this one goes.

Nothing extraordinary. It's a decent dragstore mascara though. The color is nice, it comes off quite easily and holds the curl well. If applying a second or third coat when still wet it doesn't clump much but I haven't achieved dramatic results in terms of volume and length even though I use primer first.
