Product Review: Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara

I have been a staunch supporter of Maybelline mascara ever since I started wearing them 7 years ago. I have never come across a mascara of theirs that disappointed me because they only got better and better. Until now.



  • Does not flake during the day
  • Does not feel crispy on the lashes after drying
  • It comes off easily with water or makeup remover


  • The applicator stem is loosely attached to the cap so it wobbles a little during application
  • The applicator is too big to get into the inner corners of my eye
  • The bristles are not how they appear on the packaging and are instead sparse and short which makes it hard to get product
  • Despite having short, spaced out bristles, after only the first use the formula became very clumpy
  • The mascara itself does not add volume and only adds length after 3 layers of application which also creates clumping
  • It takes a couple of minutes to dry, which  longer than I’m used to

Overall I am sad to say that I would definitely not repurchase this product. I simply cannot get long or voluminous lashes with the formulation and applicator of this mascara so I’ll happily be going back to my Lash Sensational, which I love. And while I will not be repurchasing this particular mascara, I will definitely continue to try out future Maybelline mascara’s because their track record is still really impressive in my book.
