I love this mascara. I get no clumping and perfect coverage. The spoon brush works great to help curl the lashes. I will say, however, that with the brush, there is a bit of a learning curve. If you don't use the brush correctly, you likely won't get a desired outcome. The only reason I give this mascara a 4 instead of a 5 is because it doesn't give the appearance of false lashes as it claims. I still like it though. I have thin, short, light colored lashes and this makes them appear slightly darker, longer, and thicker. I've already purchased this twice so yes, I would repurchase and recommend it.

I love this mascara, buy far the best I've found in a drugstore. I used to used the Volume Express from Loreal but I haven't seen it for a while in Walgreens. I this mascara in the Black Drama and am now on my second tube. Love this stuff! It definetly does what it promises to do!

The key to liking the Falsies is to get Black Drama...made all the difference in me loving this mascara...i returned this one, it flaked, but decided to try it again after reading about black drama...LOVE LOVE ! my review on Falsies Black Drama for more info.

At first I hated this mascara and didnt think it came up to its promises at all, but then i tried using it in different ways and it became very attractive and makes my eyes stand out. This product is amazing if you use it the right way!

Here are a few tips, to help you love this mascara as much as I do:

1. Apply this mascara before any other makeup. (as you might make mess).
2. As you apply this mascara make sure you do at least 3 layers. (make sure you cover every eye lash from left to right to get the falsie effect).
3. Try make your eyelashes as long as possible, you can do this by re apply the mascara to the ends to aslong as you like. (do this more on the outsides of your eyes).
4. only do 1 layer on your bottom eyelashes, some people like doing plenty and others like doing none, though when you do it, it makes your eyes stand out much more, though you dont want to pack it on the bottom, otherwise it looks trashy.
5. If you do get clumps go through with a fine brush and get rid of them.
6. Clean all of the mess you made, as you would have to get the hard spots and a good effect.

I love this mascara! My favorite so far. I have read reviews about it taking too long to dry, not doing anything for lashes, etc. but for me it worked fantastic!
I have naturally long lashes, so applying this definitely helped! My friend actually asked me if I was wearing false lashes.
Needless to say, I highly recommend this and I loved the outcome. It's also very cheap for the quality! It's usually $5 to $6, so you don't have to spend a fortune to get great looking lashes!

Doesn't live up to its claims, at all...impossible to remove. You will be wearing it in one form or another for days.

This product really did make a difference in the length of my lashes and it was easy going on. Mine hasn't been flaky or clumpy or sticky...just right in my opinion. The brush is on the longer side for most mascara brush and slightly curved. Also the bristles don't flow around the entire brush like most mascaras, they flare out from two sides. I think MAC has a mascara with a similar wand (plush lash maybe). Overall I'm happy with it, I switch between this a the maybelline one by one and I love them both.
