Im a huge mascara freak. My eye lashes are my one thing that has to be perfect. I'll get back in the shower to wash everything off and redo it all if even one eyelash is out of place! (That sounds dramatic but I'm so serious.) This mascara didn't work for me. I didn't like the formula, it was too sticky/tacky. It caked if I was super careful. I gave it three stars because I realize I'm just way too critical of mascaras. Also, my mom swears by it. She absolutely loves it and is the one mascara she's bought in the last couple years and uses regularly. Like I said, I love mascara and eye lashes so I always give her the ones that don't work for me. (No, I don't 'collect' makeup, though I am obsessed with all things makeup.) I know you're not supposed to 'share' makeup but she's my mom so it's not a big deal.

I’ve used this mascara for years. Definitely a permanent product in my cosmetic bag. I’m giving it a solid 4 stars because I personally don’t like the fact it’s washable. One rub of the eyes and it’s EVERYWHERE. Other than that tiny little flaw I love it. My lashes appear so full and bold and it’s super cheap. I highly recommend snatching Maybelline Volum' Express® The Falsies® Washable Mascara out of Rite Aid or Harris Teeter, even Walmart. ❤️

I've managed to revamp my entire makeup routine to cruelty free and/or vegan, except for THIS mascara. I'm hooked and I can't find a cruelty/vegan dupe or adequate replacement. It's been my go-to mascara for at least 10 years now!! 

My lashes are average but with this mascara, they can almost touch my brow-bone without being too clumpy or fake looking (even though the name is of the mascara is Falsies). The unique wand and consistency of the formula work really well for me. 

The wand applicator is not your average shape. it's more of a flat-two sided wand, which I believe to be the secret of why I like this mascara so much! The shape allows you to build up length by holding it at an angle so that the bristles of the wand are almost parallel to your lashes as you glide it onto your lashes. If you want to build up volume, then hold the wand so that it is more perpendicular to your lashes (wand is parallel to the ground). I usually apply 2-3coats of it. I hope that makes sense and helps whoever is giving this mascara bad reviews!! It's just the best mascara hands-down. I've tried them all. I even prefer this mascara to the TooFaced Better than Sex mascara. The Maybelline Falsies should actually hold that title in my opinion

I've been using this mascara since it debuted and it's still in my top 3. The black is actually black--its not a dark brown or gray, which I really appreciate. The formula isn't super clumpy on its own but if you like spider lashes like I do (we all have our preferences, don't judge me lol) it's not hard to create that effect. You can keep it light and still see a noticeable difference in your lashes, or you can go overboard like I do and it'll still look alright. I don't have issues with flaking, the product drying out or product creating large clumps on the wand. It stays put all day but washes right off. I've noticed it also works well with other mascaras, lengthening ones in particular. I usually use this in combination with a lengthener to get the effect I want. Love this mascara.

I used to wear and absolutely love the waterproof version of this. I could run, cycle, swim, dance, and wear this all day. It was easy to wash off with a good eye makeup remover and it was clump free while making my lashes look fabulous. But then one day I bought one, returned that one, and then a third one from another store. The brush and the formula was different than the previous same labeled branded one I had previously loved. The product came out clumpy and messy. It was such a disappointing moment. I had to once again search for a new mascara that would darken my very long yet light colored lashes.

This product needs TEN stars. I've been using the falsies since I was THIRTEEN years old. (Currently 21). I haven't found a better mascara since. It separates my lashes, lengthens then, and makes them voluminous. It's also easy to wash off. It never flakes nor makes my eyes irritated. I've recommended this product to all of my friends over the years and they haven't found anything better than this product, either. I will continue buying this product probably for the rest of my life. I haven't loved a product more than this, and I can't express how great it works.

I love the Brown, it's hard to find so I have to stick with the brownish black color. I love this product. Works very well for my lashes.
I found an eyeliner in brown as well that I absolutely love, Maybelline Precise Skinny Eye Pencil. I always outline the top with a little sand color eyeshadow.
 I also Love the Baby Lips Color Balm Crayon by Maybelline to give my lips just a hint of color, but to keep them hydrated also. 
 For my hair, Sebastian Professional Shaper Plus Hairspray is perfect for me. Leaves my hair touchable and shiny. I don't feel 47 yrs.

So if you like false eyelashes for volume and length but don't like applying the glue and all of that to your eyelashes this is a great product. The one thing I I don't care for however have found a way to make it a little easier to deal with is as follows. The problem is it flakes, so use something lay underneath your eyelashes when applying it and using a blow dryer on low heat upwards to dry. Although before you just apply it and use the blow dryer. I would allow it to sit in dry for a couple of minutes, and then take the blow dryer underneath your chin and on low heat proceed to blow dry upwards. Doing this will curl, as it's also is drying your lashes, and blowing off the flakes. You can use basically anything to lay under the Lash before applying the mascara as simple as a little posts tea or anything that you have in your house that will catch the pieces that don't blend into your eyelash. You can also just simplify it. Brush through your eyelashes with a eyelash comb, take your eyelash curler and curl your lashes, and then take a little piece of paper right under your eye placed on your cheek and apply the mascara. They do say beauty is pain. Well there is also another saying, being beautiful and flawless is hard work. This product is definitely and item I have multiple of and will continue to buy because I absolutely love how a my lashes look after applying. Plus fellow Beauty lovers the price alone for what it does is amazing in itself.

I have used both colors with this product. I used this for many years when diorshow or something else wasn't in the budget. I have bought this product repetitively. The formula dries out pretty quickly, I recommend wiping off the wand before applying first coat. Very wet formula , can get very messy. The packaging is pretty cute. For the price, you could get something more worth your buck. The wand is what really drew me in, and the wand did finesse me. I personally would not repurchase now that I am more in depth with other products.

Absolutely the ONLY mascara I will ever need for the rest of my life! I have been buying this for several years now. Every time I try out another mascara I end up going right back to this one! Gives me the perfect ratio of length and volume and does not get clumpy at all! I do my first couple coats with the washable formula and then throw a light coat of the waterproof over top and on my bottom lashes and it lasts all day! The washable underneath the waterproof makes it super easy to take off at night too!
