I didn't try the Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara predecessor. I expected Push Up Drama to push my fragile little lashes around and overpower them with mascara. But I had no such apprehension with Push Up Angel. Not with this brush.
This Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Mascara ($11.99 CAD at drugstores and $9.49 USD at ulta.com) brush is more like a comb, able to get super-close to the base of the lashes to tightline with mascara as you apply it. The slenderness of the comb-brush also makes it lower-lash friendly. (I don't have lower lashes, so you'll have to test that on your own, sorry!)
Here's my before Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Angel, and my after. I got more volume than I expected; I'm absolutely going to use it again and again. The brush requires a little technique adjustment; my next go should have a bit more finesse.
UPDATE: I find that I get best results when I use the brush at a 45-degrees-ish angle up from the base of my lashes rather than with curve straight on. Angling the comb upward a bit helps extend the lashes. (Does that make sense?) The application result in the above photo has been the best of all the applications I've tried this week, probably because I've been figuring out the brush.
I haven't yet decided which I like better, my current love Maybelline Lash Sensational Full Fan Effect or this one; I'll need to live with Push Up Angel a bit longer to know.
UPDATE: I think I still prefer Maybelline Lash Sensational Full Fan Effect. I find it less effort to apply, with more reliable volume and length results. I also think Full Fan Effect has better smearproof/budgeproof power.
I'll use The Falsies Push-Up Angel one more time today, and see how it goes, though.
If you've naturally got longer lashes, maybe you'll get results like Ariel's in this, another one of those spur-of-the-moment iPhone videos I took just because the opportunity presented itself.
Have you tried Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara? Or The Falsies Push Up Drama?
