I avoided this mascara for months. My mom picked it up for me on an after-Christmas sale, and I just never got around to using it. But one day, I got bored of my regular routine and grabed it on a whim. Much to my surprise, it's actually a really great product.

The mascara volumizes well. I have naturally long eyelashes, so I'm not sure if it actually lengthens, or just defines my ends. It leaves my lashes soft and flexible, doesn't clump, and last all day. It gives me results comparable to the Benefit Badgal Lash masara, which could be it's much more expencive twin. It lacks the nasty "rosebud" scent in the yellow tube maybelline, so that's also an added bonus.

I've never been a fan of brushes where they're curved and you have to hold them the "right way". I just think it requires too much effort and thought. Oh well, you can't have it all....

I had a love/hate relationship with this mascara. I loooved how the mascara looked, it gave great volume and I didn't have a problem with clumping, plus I didn't need to curl my lashes. The thing that gets me the most is taking the mascara off. I use garnier make up remover wipes and to me those take off just about anything. I seriously had to scrub so hard just to get the mascara off. I lost so many eyelashes :( maybe it was just the bottle that I had. I would have re-purchased the product if it was easier to come off. (the mascara wasn't waterproof)

If you are looking for volume, go and buy this mascara. This is really good, it gives a lot of volume, and a bit of lenght. The only reason why i would not buy this again is because volumizing mascaras don't look really good on me. I'd rather go for a lenghtning mascara. It clumps off a little bit though, si you have to check you out in the mirror and clean any fall out. But overall, i think this mascara does a good job and you should try it out. I got it for 7$ and walmart :D

I have always wanted to try this product because of its' name but never did because it retailed for almost $20AUD which I think is a little expensive for a department brand. So when this was on sale I finally bought it with a lot of expectations. I expected what the company promised: false looking lashes. Pros: no clumps or smudges (I bought the waterproof version). Lengthens the lashes like any other mascara & it separated my lashes well. Cons: in one stroke it did not build volume nor made my lashes super long like it was fake. Although the product encouraged more than one coat to achieve the desired effect, I think in the long run this mascara will not be worth its value. It would take a lot of product to build the lashes as the consistency of the mascara is thin. I think I will stick to my old favourite mascaras in the meantime. The Falsies mascara for me is like any ordinary mascara which enhances your lashes but for dramatic false lashes I like the Lancome Fatale mascara which I used years ago

I bought this mascara about 2-3 months ago and I first tried it I thought it was great but putting it on I had to wipe off excess on the wand so it wouldn't clump. I couldn't blink basically 'til it was dry otherwise it would run and get all over. Also it flakes and falls on my face. I don't even need to remove it at night hence, it basically falls off during the day. Especially when it's hot outside and on my bottom lashes, smudges and looks like a have black eyes. The price was great I can't remember really how much but it was definitely under $10. Which is great. My lashes did clump and stick together a lil bit too. Also the brush is a lil if that makes sense. And it also doesn't stand by it's name "falsies" order for that to happen I gotta put on like 5 coats of it but then it starts to clump and look so, just, unattractive. it's embarrassing when someone you don't know at the mall comments on how bad your lashes look. ha. definitely will not re-purchase. I'll stick to covergirl lash blast.

this mascara didn't wow me with its promise of length/volume similar to false lashes (though i wasn't expecting to have a pair of ardell's magically appear upon application!). i found it to be average in performance, though what i intensely disliked about this mascara is that, an hour or two after application without fail, it smudges and flakes off like nobody's business! i spend most of my touch up time swiping flakes and smudges off from under my eyes than i do anything else. definitely not repurchasing.

At first this was amazing. But it's just average and after about 5 hours it smudges a little. I love the brush though to get all the little lashes. And I love the packaging. But otherwise it's just blah

I dont know why people say this flakes, it does not flake whatsoever, could be because I have the waterproof version . But this is a really good mascara makes my eyelashes really long without giving them that spidery look , full and black. I love it ! Its a hassle trying to remove though with my neutrogena towels so I use pond cold cream to remove just my eye make up ... But this is a good mascara

This stuff is awful!! The formula is so watery and runny! When I pull the wand out of the tube, I have to scrape off excess product to avoid clumping and even then, there's some clumping and it makes such a mess on my eyes if I'm not careful about blinking too much. I've heard that after a while, it dries out a little and is the perfect consistancy, but I've had it for about 2 months or so and it has not dried out one bit!! To make it work, I scrape off the excess and do not put the wand back in the tube before doing the other eye, then I let it dry and put CoverGirl Lasblast Fusion over it to separate my lashes. I definitely will not buy this again!

This didn't give me spider lashes, and in fact I really liked the volume it gave me with a few layers. When I first apply it, my lashes look awesome, but by the end of the day they're a weighed down, flaky mess. I would repurchase again if not for the key flaking issue. Sorry guys, but for longwear this product is a miss.
