Most Helpful Positive Review Not that bad
I got this mascara because I wanted a washable mascara that can hold my curl. The formula is more of a dry one and It actually does a descent job at holding the curl, and also provides nice length but It does't give me much volume because I find that it's a little hard to build up because it can start to clump. Another thing is that it kind of makes my lashes a little hard and brittle. But the brush does a good job at separating and it reaches all my lashes and I haven't had any problems with flaking or smudging. It's not that bad but it's not my favorite mascara. I prefer the full n soft.
Most Helpful Critical Review Ehh... Not sure how i feel about it
I have long curled eyelashes, and I loved how the mascara fanned the lashes out and made my eyes look so much bigger. The bottle itself also has a very sexy design. However, the mascara is clumpy INSIDE the bottle. It goes on fine, but sometimes doesnt adhere to my lashes when I would put it on. And when i would try to get it off with ANYTHING (water, cold cream, makeup remover, make up removing wipes, etc) it felt very gritty and sandy. If i got it in my eyes it felt like sand was in my eyes. If you put too many coats, the mascara clumps and looks like little sand particles are mixed in with the mascara. After i would try and remove it, the mascara woulsd still be there, on my lashes and in a smudged circle under my eyes. It is a chore to take it off.

This is the first non waterproof mascara that has ever held up my curl. My lashes are very straight and usually only waterproof formulas hold their curl. I'm just shocked this works for me!

Have been using it for years and the wand is a game changer. Better than any luxury mascara wand I have tried. Gives your lashes a bit of a curl during application. Only down side is it's not the best for bottom lashes, but that's not as important to me.
No Clumping Mascara

I would buy this product again.

I love this mascara! My lashes are longer and curler.
Pretty good product
Tomlinoodle from Fresno, CA
This is a great mascara for the price point. I always complain about drug store mascaras being "too" expensive, but end up buying $20+ prestige brand mascaras. However, this does cover all the qualities I look for in a mascara. It separates them but also gives them major volume. The only con about this product is that I have to repeatedly need to add like 3-5 coats to get the volume I'm looking for. I wait for the first coat to dry and then add another and so on. But overall I would buy again.
They decreased the size
NikkiB from Clearwater, FL
I would have given this product a 5 star rating since I have used it for years. However, I bought this along with another Maybeline mascara promotion and was very disappointed to see that they had significantly decreased the size of the product. I don't know if they slid it in since it was buy one get one half off or what but I was really irritated.
This Maybelline product is my all time favorite.

Love Falsies Mascara
Nope, not this time
clump123 from Buffalo, NY
I've used Maybelline for decades and for some reason VOLUM' EXPRESS® THE FALSIES FLARED® WASHABLE MASCARA VERY BLACK, was a total and frustrating disappointment. I've never had a mascara dry up & clump only after 30 days of purchase. Never again....
Stef02 from New york
I rate this mascara with 0 star, unfortunately i have to give 1 star to write a review ugh... I just got it yesterday and it's the worst mascara I've bought from maybelline, my lashes look clumpy, sticky and short also the mascara flakes all into your face! I'm so disappointed because I usually wear The Falsies so I decided to give a try to The Falsies Flared but for the first time I WANT MY MONEY BACK! If you are looking for a good mascara buy The Colossal Cat Eyes!

MY FAVORITE MASCARA EVER
Lauren from Cincinnati, Ohio
I have used this mascara for almost 5 years now, and will never purchase another mascara again. Begging Maybelline to never discontinue this product! Adds so much volume, thickens lashes, and is easy to use. I typically prefer thicker lashes, so I apply several generous coats to get the look I prefer.
I wouldn't not buy this again
Chelealise from Livermore, Ca
I was very disappointed with this mascara. From the start it clumped, flaked and dried out so fast. I feel like I had to use a lot in order to achieve any volume at all. I read good reviews which is why I tried it but my experience was not good at all. I wouldn't recommend this at all.
Falsies without the problems
Caked by cap from Atlanta GA
I've loved this mascara since I was in high school! It's the only one I use when I don't want to wear my falsies.
Teatheresa from Fenton
I have Asian eye with very little eyelid and straight lashes. This mascara lifts so that I now visually have lashes! It's the only one I've found.

Same as regular falsies
Excellent product, great bang for the buck
Kate CB from Crystal Lake, IL
Once applied, no touch-ups needed. Have not experienced any dryness, crumbling, or clumping. Excellent value, does the trick! Applies evenly and gives great definition to my lashes.

My go to
Serenity from Clark NJ
I've tried many mascara but this is honestly my go to for years. It gives a natural lengthy look and is buildable. Love it !

I have been using this for a long time. I tried another mascaras and different brands but I turned back to this. My friends asked me many times if I got false lashes but nope, only this mascara without lash curlers. I'm exactly sticked on this.
VLynne from Monroe, MI
As soon as I pulled the wand out of the tube I just knew this product was junk. The wand is very cheap and flimsy. I put one swipe on and instantly regretted it. This formula is extremely dry and clumpy. Sure it gives some volume, but who wants their lashes sticking together and turning in all different directions?! Not me! If you're into the 'spider lashes' look then this may be for you, otherwise steer clear.
The drugstore mascara I always go back too
Kfly18 from St. Louis
This is my all time favorite lower priced mascara. Won't be for you if you are into wet formulas. Clumpy in a good way that builds volume but doesn't overclump. Holds curl very well. Does not flake!
sherryd from Wilmington, NC
A young lady on Youtube rated this mascara as her #1 choice. She tried many & listed her #1-#10. I have been searching for a mascara that does not flake off onto my face during the day.....this one does not fit that bill. Also, it has a flimsy wand.
