Push up Mascara?

Helloooo! It has been soooo cold recently like literally freezing, but the weather these past couple of days has actually been quite nice. I don't know if I'm the only person that gets seriously sad if it's too cold, is anyone else like that? Anyway onto the blog post today which is Maybelline's the Falsies Push up Drama mascara. 

I absolutely looove Maybelline's Lash Sensational mascara, I think it's the best one I've ever used, but before that I never really used much Maybelline. I think the first foundation I bought myself was their Dream Matte Mousse, which was awful from what I cant remember, so after that I never really bothered with Maybelline. But recently I am loving their lipsticks and eyeshadow palettes, and when I saw Gigi Hadid modeling this new mascara I had to try it. So I bought it!
I had high hopes as it promises a lot. It say's 'bold, thick volume gravity-defying lift'. I personally would have used the word clumpy! I took a close up of my eye before and after application and I think you will see what I am talking about. I admit from afar it doesn't look THAT bad but up close you can see just how clumpy it is. I also took a close up of the brush too. The bristles are cupped shapped that are meant to help push up the lashes and coat them to make them appear thicker. It definitely made my lashes thicker but I don't like the look.
Another thing I didn't like was the fact that after a few hours of wearing this mascara, half of it was under my eyes. I was forever wiping black away, and even my colleague at work asked if I was tired because my eyes looked dark... not happy! The formula does say it includes styling wax to keep the lashes lifted but obviously it doesn't stay on great. I thought maybe having the styling wax would have helped to stay on but no. I am aware that no where on the packaging or advertisement does it boast about being long lasting, or 12hr wear etc but seriously, I was only 4hrs into my shift looking like a panda!

Personally I would not recommend this mascara to anyone, unless they prefer the clumpy look. I think it definitely does lift but the end result is just not worth it. The mascara I always recommend would be Maybelline's Lash Sensational as it gives much better results.
