Honestly, I am in love with this mascara. Best one I have ever used! I've bought it I believe 3 or 4 times. It lengthens my lashes gorgeously and the volume is fantastic. It doesn't make your eyelashes look to dramatic though. It is a very wearable amount. Of course you could easily build it up to very dramatic, but I don't. I defidently recomend this! :)

I've used 95% of the mascaras on the market, especially the brand name mascaras that are sold at Sephora. I LOVE THE FALSIES! My lashes look AMAZING! My lashes look SO full, long, and voluminous, that I don't even wear eyeliner when I wear this mascara. I just put on tinted moisturizer, a little blush, burts bees pomegranite lip balm (with MAC lipliner in Spice-VERY lightly applied), and The Falsies! It looks GREAT!!! It does not flake on me, even after having it on for 12-14 hours. I find that it is sightly ore difficult to remove than other mascaras, but it's not a big problem for me. I also notice that it does not curl the lashes like some other mascaras do (for example Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes), but I use a curler before applying, so it doesn't matter. If I apply too many coats, it clumps- but who wants Tammy Faye Baker lashes anyway? I use a 6-8 stroke max with no redipping in the bottle and rarely a second coat. I never need a second coat because the first is sufficient to give me LONG (they almost touch my eyelid), LUSH, super FULL lashes.

Bought this recently, and i am kind of impressed and kind of not.
It looks good on the lashes, but it does not give the false eyelash look like it says it does. I find i have to put heaps on before my lashes look defined enough. It is good though because it eventually makes the lashes look really long.
Not a thickening mascara though, thats for sure. Although is sure is one of the best i have tried. (I have bad luck with finding makeup that looks good on me)

This is a decent mascara.

Pros - I wouldn't say it looks like false eyelashes but when built up this mascara does give an incredibly dramatic look. Definitely one of the more dramatic drug store mascaras available.
- - -
Cons - the brush makes it hard not to clump your eyelashes giving that spidery eyelash look.

Side note: overall this would be a great drug store buy if it didn't clump. Other than that I enjoy the look this mascara gives when applied correctly. Not sure if I would repurchase because although I like the overall effect, I don't like having to spend extra time to make sure it's not going to clump.

This is one of my favorite mascaras. The trick is mostly in the brush and learning how to use it, but once you get that, it's a snap. The spoon shape is supposed to be held with the curve going up into your lashes, so it coats them very evenly and holds a nice curl. The thing I like about this mascara is that it is very buildable, so long as you work quickly. It is wet, so once it dries the first coat, it probably isn't a good idea to apply another one or you'll risk major clumping. But you can apply one coat for a natural look or you could go for 4+ coats for dramatic. Very nice job, Maybelline.

Let me just mention that this review may be terribly biased because I started using Falsies at the same time I started using Careprost. But I have used all kinds of mascara in the past, so that should lend me some credibility.
So let me just say it - this may very well be my new favorite drugstore mascara! I donít know if it can overcome my favorite - Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill mascara, but itís darn impressive, especially for a fraction of the cost.
I had been using Maybelline Stiletto before Falsies, so that is my point of reference. Falsies is a way superior formula, by far. After the first few days of using Falsies Ė I noticed how less clumpy my eyelashes were. Something about the Falsies brush or formula lent to better consistent coverage. This mascara also fares well with several coats Ė which sigh, some of us definitely need at times!
The brush construction is such that it is able to reach the tiniest and thinnest of lashes to coat them with some mascara-loving. I have really insanely uneven lashes now (thanks Careprost) and nothing performs quite like Falsies is evenly coating them all.
I donít know if this is AS GOOD as DiorShow or Eyes to Kill, but it is the best drugstore mascara Iíve used thus far.

This mascara is sooo amazing. It really is like false lashes in a tube. My lashes looked like I had on about 3 pairs of falsies because they were so thick and long. No one would believe it was only mascara. The only thing is that it's really hard to wash off, but at the same time it stays on ur lashes alll day without smudging. I wouldn't wear it daily but it's great for days when u want to look extra sexy and dramatic without having to wear actual falsies.

I liked the Falsies mascara pretty well, it volumized and made my lashes look thick, but it did clump and even the non-waterproof version was hard to wash off. Overall this isn't a bad mascara and I'd repurchase it when I'm looking for a change but it isn't my favorite by far. You'll definitely need a lash comb for this one.

i liked this at first and use this as a back-up mascara but i find it to be very clumpy and lacking the effect i expected. plus it is a pain in the arse to wash off.
