If you really want to know what is Monsoon? You should come to Mumbai (i.e if you are not in Mumbai). It is raining cats and dogs here from past 3 days and there is finally some sunlight today. The sun is out and I felt inspired to write this post on Maybelline New York Falsies Push Up Drama Waterproof Mascara. Generally, I don’t buy waterproof version of a mascara. But its a must have in Mumbai during Monsoon and summers…YES! Summers too! One day I went for an event and I was dreaded to see my mascara in the lift, it was smudged all over my eyes due to sweating. So I thought of investing in a good waterproof mascara to avoid further wardrobe malfunction. 😛 Honestly, I was ready to buy an expensive one too. In my search, I thought of giving this mascara a try and here I am with the complete review.

My Experience with Maybelline New York Falsies Push Up Drama Waterproof Mascara Review-
This is one of most blackest black mascara in budget mascara category. The formula is wet yet thick and it dries pretty quickly. You can easily add 2-3 coats of mascara without any clumps. The waterproof version is way too good and I wore the mascara in hot & humid climate and in rains. The mascara didn’t smudge or budge at all. I usually wear colored contact lenses and it didn’t irritate my eyes. I can say its safe to say to use even for people who wear contact lenses. I always curl my lashes and then apply a mascara unless I am in a hurry. This mascara curls the lashes very well and keep them uplifted for a longer period of time. Some mascara lengthens while some add volume, this mascara does both; adds volume for fuller looking lashes and lengthens them. I love how affordable yet effective this mascara turned out to be. Maybelline Push up Drama Waterproof Mascara lasts for a really long time and stays until removed. One tube lasts for around 3 months based on the usage. The only con I see that its a pain to remove this mascara you need to have a very good makeup remover to get rid of it. Also, I would like to warn you that never sleep with this mascara it may irritate your eyes. Anyway, its not good to sleep with your makeup on. Overall, I love this mascara its affordable, waterproof and it works very well. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara is my other favourite. I have to accept that Maybelline makes some really good mascaras in the budget range.
