Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara.
Mascara is my weakness. If I had to pick just one makeup product to use for the rest of my life, it’d probably be mascara.
Maybelline mascaras are definitely amongst my favorites (their Lash Sensational mascara is one of the best drugstore mascaras I’ve ever used). When they release a new mascara, I usually pick up it up as soon as I can find it.
Maybelline says that this mascara will give you lashes that are lifted and dramatic. The formula is said to be plumping and it promises to deliver instant volume and lift that holds in place. Push up cup brush with cup-shaped bristles is supposed to scoop and lift the lashes.
Why I love it:
-gives great length
-fast-drying formula (this means that layering can be a little difficult if you like to take your time “coating” your lashes you gotta make it snappy! BUT it’s great for when you’re in a hurry since you don’t have to worry about any accidental smudges)
-no dry fall-out during the day
-very easy to remove
Why I don’t love it:
-what volume? Seriously this mascara gives me no volume at all. It gives a lot of length (I felt like it almost made my lashes too long and thin) but it does nothing for me in the volume department.
-what lift? I didn’t notice any “lift” in my lashes, even when using a lash curler prior to applying the mascara, my lashes wouldn’t hold a curl for a very long time.
-while the brush is really comfortable to use, I really think that the bristles are not dense enough. They are too far apart and they don’t separate the lashes very well, creating sort of a clumpy, spidery look.
-my wand is a little loose, meaning it sort of wiggles about of the cap. This never happened to me with a mascara before, so I’m not sure if I just got a faulty one, or if that’s how it’s supposed to be.
-while I love drier formulas, sometimes when using this mascara I felt like it was almost too dry. Like it’s been sitting open for a while.
Overall, I cannot say that I’m a big fan of this mascara. If you like a lot of length and don’t mind your lashes looking a bit clumpy then you’d most likely get a long with it.
Did any of you guys try this mascara? If so, how did you like it?
