Maybelline knows mascaras like no other brand. I have literally tried all Maybelline mascaras and The Falsies and Lash Sensational Mascara ones are my favourite. I have my eye on the Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Mascara but unfortunately it is not available in India yet. They have launched the Push Up Drama Mascara and I immediately purchased it. Needless to say, it is another amazing one and slightly differs from the other ones. Here is the detailed review on the product in question.

PRICE – 550 INR for 9.7ml



Maybelline mascaras are always vibrant in color and this one as beautiful glossy black and metallic red packaging. It has the usual cardboard packaging with necessary details penned down. The body of the mascara is long and sleek with screw cap with the wand attached to it. Overall the packaging is simple and efficient.

Coming to the wand, it is a long and slender with a slightly rubber like flexible body. There is no curve at all. The spikes are short, straight and have a push-up cup like structure. You will not be able to understand the wand much with the product coated but when it comes to the application, I love the wand. The flexibility enables to coat each and every lash beautifully and the wand reaches out to the difficult and inner portions of the eyes without messing my makeup. The excess product does not clump and looks spidery and thus the application is easy. However, the application is slightly different from other mascara wands I have used so far. You have to wiggle slowly from the root to tip. Simply do not go for too many layers if you don’t want spidery lashes.

The texture of the mascara is medium thick and the consistency is light. It doesn’t clump much whilst applying. The wand picks up proper amount of product and the mascara also dries up quickly on the eyes.  Therefore, you won’t have to worry about smudging or transferring on to the lower lash line or upper eye lids. The shade is called “Blackest Black” and therefore it adds a notch of deepness to the eyes and eye makeup. The lashes look fuller, deeper and fluttery. Therefore, the pigmentation is very good of the mascara. I feel it has the same amount of deepness as the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara.

The effect which it gives to my lashes is impressive. It adds volume, lengthens lightly and also holds the curl very well. This mascara I picked up is of the washable variant (also available in waterproof variant) which hold the curls decently although the waterproof variant is better. You can utilize the mascara at the best if you curl the lashes beforehand. It dramatically adds volume and makes the lashes look fuller and thicker. Simply two layers will do the trick and I can happily skip using false eyelashes. However, going overboard with the mascara will be disastrous so stick to very light handed 2 coats. It never makes he eyelashes go crunchy and heavy as well.

The formula is smudge proof and even the washable variant is water-resistant. It stays on the eyes till I remove it and holds the curl for a pretty long duration. Price wise, it is still an excellent drugstore mascara and easily available. Comparing with the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara, the only difference is the formula (both are perfect) and the shape of the wand. With the falsies mascara, I would say that the wand is different and Falsies can hold the curls better. In terms of volume, I think both are at par.

OVERALL – Maybelline the Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara, available in water proof and washable variant has a slightly thick but lightweight texture with smudge proof formula that add loads of volume and lengthens slightly. It is surely excellent mascara from the house of Maybelline.
