The Falsies Push-up Drama Mascara comes in two variants – waterproof and washable. It promises dramatic volume with a 45 degrees lift and a cup-shaped and push up brush that scoops, coats and lifts lashes.

I had bought the waterproof variant since I’ll be needing the drama to my eyelashes during weddings or some other functions.


  • The mascara comes in a funky and eye-catching metallic tube with a red cap, black body with rose gold lettering and hot pink bottom. It looks like a dual mascara but it’s not. Yep, I totally dig the packaging.
  • The wand is made of plastic and the bristles are far apart which helps in separating the eyelashes.
  • Basically, the wand is a push-up brush with cups to scoop up the lashes and coat them evenly.

The Wand
  • The texture is quite thick.
  • It is highly pigmented. One swipe did give me a really good black finish.
  • And it definitely added volume to my eyelashes.
  • It separated my eyelashes beautifully to give a thick lashes impression.
  • Also, it applied evenly even on my lower lashes. I could coat them without smudging.
  • It dries to a very dark black finish in about 4-5 seconds.
  • It didn’t clump my lashes for the first two months of use.
  • It lasted 8+ hours on me.
  • Travel friendly since the tube is quite sturdy.
  • Smudge proof.
  • Waterproof.
  • Shelf life : 30 months.

  • It didn’t lengthen my lashes or curl them.
  • Waterproof formula and so very very difficult to remove.
  • Unfortunately. it irritates my eyes and makes it water.
  • It clumps when you add more than one coat. I prefer a feathery look that gives an impression of natural thick eyelashes. But if you prefer a clumpy look, this is not an ideal mascara for you.
  • The wand is abrasive since it has plastic bristles. So, you need to be really careful when starting to apply from the root of your lashes.
  • I feel it’s too costly because it certainly doesn’t have any wow factor to it.
  • The mascara started becoming dry after 2-3 months of usage itself.
  • After 2 months of purchase, it started clumping a lot. It clumps your eyelashes with just a single coat. It made my lashes super clumpy and stiff that I lost 2-3 lashes when removing it.

Rating : 3/5.


  • Don’t wiggle the brush while applying like you do for other mascaras. Just sweep it from root to tip like a comb.
  • Use a oil-based makeup remover to remove it. It makes the removal part easier.


They say all that glitters is not gold. This was true in case of the Falsies Push-up Drama Mascara. Initially, it was great. It gave my lashes a natural thick lashes look but after 2 months or so it started clumping so much. I thought it was because of product build up in the wand and cleaned it. But it clumped even after that. That’s when I realized that the mascara was becoming dry. I take good care of my mascara mind you, no pumping it to get more product or anything like that. So, I was really disappointed when I realized the mascara itself was not good enough.

So, would I recommend it? Heck, no. It was really good in the beginning. I would have been okay with any con just for that falsies look but it became a total disappointment when it started drying for no reason.
