Maybelline ‘The Falsies Angel Push up’ Mascara

Hey there you beautiful humans!

So Maybelline has a serious knack for making fabulous mascaras. I mean I love so many from this brand it’s a bit ridiculous. So today I am reviewing the latest one I have tried from them and *spoiler alert* I think we have found a new favorite. So if you want to hear my thoughts on this Angel push up mascara by Maybelline, keep on reading.

Formula: The formula is quite thin, not drying but not super watery either, somewhere in the middle.

Uni lash?: Nope. This mascara does a pretty good job at separating the lashes but still giving heaps of volume. You get very long, wispy, full lashes.

Price: $19.95 AUD

Availability: Priceline, Chemist Warehouse, Target, Feel unique, Woolworths, Coles, Big W, Kmart

Panda eyes?: I don’t notice any running but I don’t have overly oily eyelids. If you splash your face with water it will smudge (I don’t have the waterproof version) but for a normal days wear it lasts perfectly well.

Does it hold a curl?: Yes it does, the mascara allows for your lashes to flare out, look wispy & fluttery. It doesn’t coat your lashes in a thick amount of product which would leave them heavy.

Difficult to remove?: With my usual routine of makeup removal which has a cleansing oil as step one – I don’t notice any difficulty in removing the mascara – but I don’t have the waterproof formula. (Psst. If you want to know how I remove my makeup – click here, to read that post).

Pros: The applicator makes it easy to apply mascara without stuffing up your eyelids, it holds a curl really well, gives you long wispy lashes and lots of volume as well. It also defines the lashes and doesn’t make them look too clumpy.

Cons: I don’t have any complaints about this mascara whatsoever!

Rating: 9/10

Overall thoughts: This has definitely upheld my expectation of Maybelline mascaras and then some. For such a simple wand it really does make the lashes look incredible. I love that it can give you both definition & volume with minimal clumpyness. I’m a massive fan of this mascara and it’s definitely creeping up as my favorite Maybelline mascara that I have tried so far.

Would I repurchase it?: Absolutely!


And that wraps up this review. Have you guys tried this mascara or any of the Maybelline mascaras? Drop a comment and let’s chat about it! I hope you all have a wonderful day, I love you guys and I’ll see you in the next post.

    Yes!!!! I agree with your review on this mascara, it was a really lovely surprise to me too. It separated my lashes beautifully and holds a decent curl too.

      It’s definitely going to be a repurchase for me I think it’s my favorite Maybelline mascara though its a close tie with their original colossal volume mascara.

    I’m always looking for mascara recommendations, I find it one of the hardest products to shop for because its hard to judge them just on packaging without trying it on! This will be on my list of things to purchase next! x

      It definitely is hard to figure out if it will be good or not. I can never tell if the mascara will be dramatic enough on me or too simple. I also love the original colossal volume mascara from Maybelline as well as the rimmel lash accelerator mascara and the L’Oreal Paris mega volume baby roll and the L’Oreal paris lash paradise mascara.

    Not sure if my previous comment was posted lol but here I am – take two!

    So glad to hear that you’ve been enjoying this mascara! Both L’oreal and Maybelline have been ruling the world of drugstore makeup lately and I will certainly give this one a go! xx

      It was posted haha but thank you for doing a take two when most usually give up. Those two brands definitely are the best at mascaras! I don’t feel the need to go highend with mascara I did pick up the benefit bad girl bang mascara which I love but that was just a treat yourself kind of purchase, drugstore mascaras are my main jam!

      I’m sort of thinking this might be my favourite maybelline mascara that I’ve tried to date but its a close tie with the original colossal volume.

    Ooh a 9/10… must be good! One of the main things I want from a mascara is for it to hold a curl so this sounds like it might be one for me!

      Exactly and the formula doesn’t feel heavy, this mascara definitely gives lots of length & whispyness to the lashes. The ones that are crazy volumizing can sometimes weigh down the lashes but this one gives lots of length and volume without making the lashes heavy.

      It’s honestly my favourite Maybelline mascara, I love the skinny wand it makes application so easy.

    The wand isn’t your typical wand but this sounds great and one to try next!

      I know the wand is so unusual and “basic” you’d think it wouldn’t make the lashes look so awesome but I am definitely obsessed.
