Although I try my best not to get sucked in by the hype of new product, having seen the shiny new packaging (literally) and promise of boosting and thickening lashes (exactly what I look for in a mascara!), I just couldn’t resist giving it a go!
As my favourite high street/ drugstore mascara is the Maybelline Falsies (original), I was intrigued to see if the new ‘Push Up Drama’ could beat it!
Let’s start with the packaging, it certainly feels a little fancier than your regular high street mascara, although the clashing red and pink colours don’t really do it for me. This mascara is Maybelline’s ‘first Push-Up brush with Cup-Shaped bristles’, how very exciting…
The formula is meant to ‘instantly plump & volumise the look of lashes, with Styling Wax to keep them lifted’. Hmm, I can’t say I agree.
On applying the product, one word springs to mind, CLUMPY! I’m sorry to say that I just cannot get on with this mascara, and I’m so disappointed considering how brilliant the original ‘Falsies’ mascara is for thickening and lengthening lashes.
No matter what I do the formula just clumps straight away, and I find myself having to use another mascara on top to try and help distribute the product more evenly.
Overall , if you’re looking for a mascara to lengthen and thicken your lashes and add ‘drama’, don’t go for this one! Instead, I highly recommend the original Maybelline Falsies mascara.
Maybelline – If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
