Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara

Maybelline's new mascara has landed with a bit of a bang, with numerous celebrities taking to Instagram to showcase it's lash boosting prowess.  This makes me feel pretty old, as I've heard of few of these celebrities, but the cool kids on Instagram seem impressed, so hey.

What I'm impressed with is the mascara itself, although it did take a little while to get to grips with the super black, thick and sticky formula.  Immediately after opening the tube, it was a little too wet and a little too clumpy, but after a day or so, it became much better.  My lashes are long, ultra black, and super voluminous after use - the nubbly wand also makes it possible to comb through the lashes to get good definition.  You do still have to work at getting great lashes - and woe betide you if you try to layer it up, for you will end up with a uni-lash, or at best spider-lashes, and you will either look very edgy or very silly.

All in all, then, a bit of a mixed review - a good mascara if you're prepared to put a bit of work in to make sure you get fluttery, voluminous lashes, but don't expect a quick, easy application.  And don't try to use it the second you open the tube.  Find it at Boots, where it costs a very reasonable £7.99.

  1. Thankyou! I thought it was just my incompetence that was making the mono-lash with this stuff - one for the round filing cabinet, I think.
