Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara - Review

September 18, 2015

Maybelline has a new mascara out called The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara and I picked it up recently at Target. I was really interested to try this since it has a different kind of brush with "U" shapes to push up the lashes to give lift and dramatic volume. I was hoping to love this and it would be a favorite but that didn't happen and I'm going to explain more below!

This mascara didn’t do much for my lashes unfortunately. It has a very wet formula which my lashes never agree with, so I couldn’t get them to hold their curl even using an eyelash curler before and after. I did get thickness and volume but not as much as I expected. The mascara was also making my lashes clump so I needed to use a lash comb. I was hoping for some length that might be able to make this mascara work better for me, but it was coating my lashes and not giving them anything to be impressed about.

My lashes are stick straight and have no curl on their own. Throughout the day of wearing this mascara, I needed to curl my lashes a few times to get them to perk up. Now I might have a different experience if I use the waterproof formula, but I usually buy the regular formula when it comes to mascara. 

Maybelline mascaras can be a hit or miss for me, and this was a miss because of the wet formula and no lengthening. I really wanted to love this mascara, but it fell flat... just like my lashes did.

Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara retails for $7.49 and can be found at Target, CVS, and other various retail stores.
