For me, big lashes are a must 365 days a year! About 2 months ago I purchased The Falsies Flared Mascara by Maybelline. I like the idea of the curved brush for that flared look. However, I wasn't too fond of the formula. It did nothing for my lashes! Also, even though I purchased the non waterproof formula, I always had problems getting it off . But after a month of use the formula changed, it dired up a bit and coated my lashes much better. It still as difficult to get off but my lashes did look more flared. I have mixed feelings about this mascara so I don't think I'll be repurchasing it.
