Im a current and have been a user of Better than sex mascara too faced since around the summer time, however being a student it's hard to re purchase at times due to the price point. This product is the only drug store mascara that i've truly fallen in love with and have gone back too in the past. When i run out of my too faced mascara this will be the one i will be purchasing apposed to the better than sex.

I have short straight Asian lashes and so far this mascara works pretty well for length and volume and holding a curl. It gives a wispy spidery look and I think that's the intention (given the name of it). I usually wear this for evenings out when I really want to open up my eyes.

As with most mascaras, the formula is wet to begin with but works better after a few uses when it gets a little drier. In general, I find this formula drier and not as gloopy as other mascaras. If applying a few layers, I'd recommend doing this while still wet rather than wait for layers to dry since it will get too clumpy.

The brush is curved and not too fat, which I like since it's easy to use and I can reach the lashes in the corner of my eyes.

The packaging itself is cheap and appears a bit bulky, but this doesn't bother me.

Once dry, the mascara really does last the whole day/night. This mascara really is waterproof so to remove, I use an oil based cleanser such Kose Softymo cleansing oil and can remove it easily by gently working it in to the base of my lashes without rubbing my eyes.

I don't wear mascara very often but so far this is probably the best one I've used.

I bought this during a sale, so i got 2 for $7.
First off, the formula is really wet, but i like that because it allows me to apply multiple coats before becoming flaky like other mascaras.
Second, this is not a fiber mascara. I initially thought it was because i read somewhere, but it's just like any other mascara. it has not fibers to lengthen. However, it does lengthen your lashes as well as give them volume, which is why I like it so much.
I also like the design of the wand. It's a curved shape that allows me to get my outer corner lashes that are always left uncoated and uncurled for whatever reason.
This mascara gives my lashes a very wispy look, which I really like, because it opens up my eyes.
I experienced with many other masacaras as well that the mascara gets better with age. After initial application, you find this mascara to be too wet, don't use it for about a week-2 weeks and use it again. i assure you it'll apply better. there's no science to prove this, but in my experience, it's worked.

So shocked to like a Maybelline product over L'Oreal!! But I love the formula in this mascara. It really does make your lashes look fuller and longer, and it lasts me through my 12 hour work days! Will continue to invest in this one. I wear contacts and it doesn't affect or bother them at all.

Just not impressed with this mascara, I first have to use too many coats and then it fakes or usually I just use a mascara primer then a coat of this, but it does not impress me at all...

I bought this mascara last week and I have been wearing it everyday since then. I mainly bought it because makeup you-tubers have been giving it good reviews. This is a dry formula which has not been an issue for me. I think the dry formula is great. I have naturally curly eye lashes so wet formulas tend to splatter on my eye lid when i apply. The want is curved which allows me to reach the outer edges of my lashes. Typically, with other mascaras, when I take the wand out of the tube i end up having to wipe the bristles off on the insides to get rid of the excess. With Falsies i didn't have to do that. I could apply right away. There was no clumping. After wearing it from 7am - 6:30pm at work, i did not notice any fall out. I really really like this mascara! It was less than $7 at Target and for makeup in Toronto, thats a good price since our prices tend to be a bit higher than in the states. It removes well. I use the Ponds Cold creme all over my face then use a warm wash clothe to remove it and it does fine. The only con is that I really have to work my lashes to get it to come off well, but I dont spend more than like 30 seconds rubbing gently with my finger tips.

I honestly really like this mascara. Yes it would clump, but you just have to be careful at applicating this. When it says water proof, it really is water proof. I have a hard time removing this even with w make up remover. I would have to scrub my eyes many times before it actually comes off.

It holds a curl very nicely. I have unnoticeable lashes and this really makes them much thicker.

After seeing all the rave reviews, I felt like I had to see what the hype was all about and picked up a tube. At first, I really didn't understand what everyone was so impressed by - the mascara seemed really dry, clumped up my lashes so they looked thin and uneven, wouldn't layer properly and didn't hold a curl. I felt like the mascara wasn't really adhering to my eyelashes, maybe because of the brush.
After many months of neglecting it, I took the Falsies out again for Project 10 Pan. This time I was determined to get it to work, so I applied it with the tip of the wand before using the sides and WOAH. This actually gets a lot of mascara on, and allows it to build up wonderfully. I don't get that much length or volume with this but it's probably the best mascara I've found for holding a curl. It does give a false-lash look, in a way, because the look comes out quite feathery and defined. Right now, the only issues I have are that if I'm not careful, the fibres (I think?) can build up quite unevenly between each eye, and that it sometimes flakes, but that could be because my tube is old and almost dried out.
This is pretty cheap and has turned out to be reliable, so I would buy it again :3 Hope this is helpful for anyone who hasn't been able to make this product work for them!
