I know I have said this before, but one product I am constantly on the hunt for is a good mascara. Scratch that – a great mascara! I have puny lashes, so finding something that can lengthen well, volumize, hold a curl, and dry quickly is a bit tricky. I also can only use waterproof formulas because of my allergies/watery eyes, but those seem to hold a curl better than non-waterproof anyway.
After seeing ad after ad for Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara, I finally gave in and purchased it. I like drugstore mascaras and occasionally prefer them to higher end brands. A few drugstore formulas are horrendous, but many are amazing and work better than some of the department store formulas I’ve tried.
The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara gave my lashes some nice length, and for having almost invisible lashes, any added length is golden. I applied two coats, but could definitely add one more for extra volume. It also dried quickly, which is great since I’m always in a rush when I do my makeup for work.
The curl in my lashes held up all day, and I didn’t notice any visible flaking or smudging at the end of my day.

I wore this mascara to my little niece’s first Christmas ballet, and seeing her flutter around on stage in a little tutu definitely brought a tear to my eye. Luckily, my mascara held up fine. Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara is one I will be reaching for time and time again.
