Review of Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara

 I’m no beauty guru, but I do like and buy makeup.  I’m middle-aged, so I don’t gravitate toward some of the younger brands.  Recently, I had a couple great coupons for this mascara by Maybelline, one of my favorite mascara brands, and used them on a deal at CVS.  I’ve worn it for three days and here are some of my thoughts on it.

  • The name of it is way too long. Perhaps that’s rather picky of me, but with a name this long, I’ll never remember it.
  • I like the packaging.  It has a unique, fresh look about it.
  • It has a rubber brush, like many do. 
  • The formula is pretty wet, so if you prefer a dry formula, don’t buy this one.
  • The brush is supposed to scoop and lift lashes, which I thought it did an ok job of doing that.
  • It says on the back “New creamy plumping formula delivers instant volume and holds lift in place.”  I thought it did ok with that, too.
  • This is how it looked on the left eye in the picture after one coat.
  • I thought it did a great job of lengthening and a moderate job of thickening.
  • A couple hours later, I looked in the mirror and had a moderate amount of smudges of mascara under my eyes.  This occurred all three days I wore it.
  • My lashes did stay lifted.  I liked the “spidery” look it gave them.  I do think more than one coat would have been too much for me.
  • Overall, I liked the look and length it gave my lashes.  I would have preferred a little dryer formula.  I didn’t like the smudges.  I will continue to use this mascara until it runs out or I need to throw it away, but I won’t repurchase it.  I still prefer the Maybelline Rocket mascara.

These are the ramblings of a woman determined to prove there is life after 50 for women who are unmarried, divorced, or widowed, and choose to live alone. This is my journey through life. It is filled with memories, dreams, hopes, disappointments, failures, and faith. Walk with me as I explore each day with questions and observations, remembrances and thoughts, all in a jot.

  1. Have you tried any of the other Falsies mascara? I’ve found that the waterproof ones don’t smudge as much as the washable ones, but definitely don’t use more than one coat or it’ll never come off! My favorite is Volum’ Express Falsies Flared Waterproof Mascara
