I'll start off by saying that I liked the original Falsies. The main difference between the two mascaras is the fact that the Big Eyes is not only dual ended but the main brush doesn't resemble the original in the least. The Upper brush is designed to be used on the upper lashes, giving them volume and while the tiny Micro brush is supposed to be used on the tiny lower lashes, for a "360 degrees of lash glam volume".
Overall this mascara is great. I am happy to report Maybelline listened to us and ditched the nasty smell recent mascaras they put out had. It's efficient, it works well and I love the dual ended brush idea, especially that awesome handy micro brush. You won't get major, dramatic eyelashes, but it does give a natural born-with-it long and flared lash look.
