So it had been a moment and a half since I last tried a new mascara, and while I tried and tried to go for a brand other than my trusty Maybelline this time, I ended up adding the Maybelline Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara to my cart. To be completely honest, what drew me towards this mascara was its red and black packaging, and I did not read even a single review before purchasing this product because I know that Maybelline knows its mascaras. Read on to find out whether the gamble paid off!
Ok, so the wand of this mascara has pretty short and stubby bristles which form a cup shape at the bottom to hold more product and to reach the very roots of the lashes with ease. I don’t know whether there is any push-up drama involved or not but this mascara gives a lot of lengthening drama in just one coat! It literally doubles the length of the lashes! However, if you want extra volume then you need to go in with 2-3 coats, but things may get a bit clumpy if you don’t brush out and separate the lashes with the wand while application. I personally love to go in with 2 coats which leave my lashes extra long and slightly more voluminous, without looking too over the top. The wand works well on the lower lashes too and separates them really well without making them clumpy. Also, I went for the non-waterproof formula because I don’t like tugging at my lashes to remove waterproof mascara, and this formula lasts all day on my lashes without crumbling or fading away.
Overall, this product does have drama and some may find it a little bit too much for daily wear (but I don’t). None of the Maybelline mascaras have disappointed me till date and I am happy to report that this one is no exception! At INR 550, it is a little bit pricier than some of the other mascaras from Maybelline, but I feel that this one is excellent for those who want slightly thicker and much longer upper and lower lashes. If you are in the market for a new mascara then you must try this gem out!
