It was 2 months ago that I opened up two new mascara to use. First is the Marc Jacobs Omega Lash. You see, I like mascara that is thick, slightly dry, gives me volume and length. This one? Does nothing. So I rummage through my medium-size Sephora at home and happily took out the Laura Mercier Extra Lash Sculpting Mascara from 2016 Holiday Collection. Now, this one I love. It’s volumizing, it’s lengthen my lashes making them looking va va voom. I left it untouched for a week to let the formula dry out a bit and it’s perfect. Love it until one rainy day. I became a panda. That few drops of rain on my lashes melt the mascara so it was all over my lid when I blinked. Besides the fact that it’s not waterproof, there’s nothing else I hate about the mascara. So I was itching to open up another brand new mascara and this Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Angel was on my vanity table for the longest time. It came together with the entire set of The Loaded Bolds lipstick, for which you already know I love 🙂
When I first twist up the cap, I looked at brush and I had 3 things going through my mind at that moment. (1) I’m glad it’s not a big fat rubbery spiky brush, (2) heck the brush is a comb and it’s tiny, and (3) come to think of it I may finally found a mascara for the top and bottom lashes! I didn’t have good experience with similar mascara brush in the past. Yes I was skeptical. But when I used it for the first time, OH MY GOD. The Falsies Push Up Angel has quickly climb its way to be my favourite mascara at the moment!
I’m glad that Maybelline sent me this one, which is a waterproof version instead of the non-waterproof version. I only use nothing but waterproof mascara. I know it’s harder to remove. Wait, let me rephrase. It’s a pain in the b*tt to remove and the formulation tend to be a little more heavier hence bringing them lashes droopy.
Don’t judge a book by its cover they say. True in this case. The “push-up wing” brush may seems a little small and intimidating BUT it packs a bunch to the lashes. This little fella is able to give volume, lift and coat each individual lashes from the root to the tip. This IS the cili padi of mascara. I was expecting droopy lashes 5 minutes after the application but nope. My lashes stays perky the entire time. I find that doing the typical zig-zap motion helps to prevent the lashes from clumping, as opposed to my typical twist and blink method. That method works better for normal brush mascara. Another thing I need to note here is that I had infection on my right eye for the longest time and this mascara didn’t irritate my eye further, which is a good news 🙂
I never found a bottom lash mascara that is able to give the kind of volume I preferred until this The Falsies Push Up Angel mascara came along. We Asians has lesser and shorter lower lashes but hey, that’s not a problem with this mascara.
As for the removal, I’m happy to say that this is a breeze to remove. Just remember to always use a bi-phase eye makeup remover and you should be fine.
Will I ever repurchase? Well, yes! I find that my tube now is a little dry and I should be repurchasing another one. This one doesn’t require any second thinking or any long reconsideration because it is seriously good and the price point of below RM40 is fairly affordable to me. You do need to toss away your mascara after 6 months.
