Maybelline 'The Falsies Push Up Drama' Mascara Review

As you may have seen in my 'Boots Makeup Haul' post from a couple of weeks ago (which you can see here), I picked up a new mascara from Maybelline. At the moment, my everyday mascara is also from Maybelline, and it is the highly acclaimed and highly talked about 'Lash Sensational'. As soon as I heard that Maybelline were bringing out a new mascara, I instantly thought that it must be better or at least as good as the 'Lash Sensational' mascara, so I really wanted to give it a go. 

However, I have to admit that I am not really loving it! It's such a shame, but for me this mascara just doesn't help at all. I have quite straight eyelashes, so I need a mascara that can hold a curl and make them look more voluminous. 

The brush is very straight and the bristles are very small, so I find it quite hard to go right into the inner corner and to the root. The problem that I have with this mascara the most is that it really separates my lashes, yet at the same time sort of clumps them together to make me look like I only have about ten individual lashes, which is not a good look. I will say though that this mascara is definitely a lot darker which I do like, and the packaging is very colourful and pretty. 

This is a side by side comparison between the mascaras. The left eye is 'Lash Sensational' and the right eye is 'The Falsies Push Up Drama'. You can tell that the left side is a lot more fuller. 

I have been determined that I will use up this mascara as I do like to get my value for money, so I have also been trying these two mascaras together. When used together, 'The Falsies Push Up Drama' really helps to lengthen the eyelashes, and paired with the curl and volume from 'Lash Sensational', it is a really good combination.

If you already have 'Lash Sensational', maybe pick 'The Falsies Push Up Drama' up, but I wouldn't really recommend it.

What do you think about this mascara and do you have any other recommendations for me?
