I love Maybelline mascaras, and new releases always get me excited. The Lash Sensation got me super excited and I am now on my third tube of the stuff and I SWEAR by it. However, Maybelline released a new one, the Falsies Push Up Drama, and of course I had to get my hands on it asap, and onto my lashes, pronto. The description for the mascara promises that the creamy, rich and plumping formula can provide volume in a matter of swipes due to a new combination of an adhesive polymer and soft wax and the unique ‘wiper’ style wand helps to boost and lift lashes. A ‘unique wiper style wand’, sorry, nothing ground breaking here. That aside, I came to quite like this mascara after first not getting along with it.
I’ll be honest, at first, I couldn’t stand it. I found it hard to swipe off excess product and it just made my lashes look short, stumpy, clumpy (and I love spider lashes), and just plain awful. I gave up, and decided to leave it a week as I did with the previous release, and voila, that was the trick. I now really like it, and have found myself reaching for it most days. Who would’ve thought! I find that it works really well at lengthening and separating my lashes on the first application, and then on the second and a gazillionth coat comes the volume, which I love. I find it super buildable, however my main issue is that it just does not hold a curl and find my lashes droop a little towards the end of the day – which is not typically an issue I have. Asides from that the packaging is also really fun, I love pink and red as a combo, and the high shine of the tube feels totally girly in my makeup bag.
