Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara Review

Did someone say new mascara? Because I am here.for.it. When I was in ULTA a few weeks ago I saw this new mascara from Maybelline
I didn't buy it. 
I must have been ill. 
I went to another ULTA and the The Falsies Push Up Angel was silently beckoning me. I had to buy it, y'all. If you follow me on Insta or Snap, you saw a preview of this. I began my review then.
The following week, Maybelline sent me some more via a box of balloons--an awesome surprise. So after testing it, I'm ready to share my thoughts.

The details:

MAYBELLINE The Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara
  • $9.49 (or less, depending on where you get it. I got mine at Ulta)
  • 3 colors
  • not waterproof
What does it do?

Maybelline's The Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara has a push-up wing brush that sweeps lashes to the side, while lifting and plumping from the roots.











Let's get a close up of that spoolie (mascara wand). 
You can see a curve to it, and that it is very thin. It's also a bendy plastic, not a traditional bristle wand. It is different from their other mascaras.

The formula reminds me of hot fudge, oddly enough, in terms of thickness. It's a really nice formula. It's like a thicker version of L'Oreal Telescopic with a little of Benefit's Rollerball to it.


Here's the before and after--no curled lashes, just mascara on your right! ONE coat!






And here it is on both eyes! By the way, I'm wearing all drugstore makeup here, minus my own creation for my lipstick. This is my no-makeup makeup/everyday look.

Wear time: all day

Occasionally it will flake a little, which is my issue for most Maybelline mascaras, but this is nothing like usual. 

Washes off easily and doesn't irritate my very sensitive eyes.

Overall: I loved it!


Have you tried this mascara?

7 Day Anti-Aging Challenge (Plus Giveaway)



Tracking Pixel
This post is brought to you by Neutrogena.

Y'all, I love it when I can find affordable beauty products that are actually good. I mean, who doesn't? Today, I'm talking about Neutrogena, a brand you've seen many times on here because I've loved them for years. You can get easily find these at CVS. I decided to try an anti-aging regiment for 7 days. And there's a giveaway at the end!

So what did I use?




First, I went with the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair System:

Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer 
Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30
Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Serum
Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream

And with that, I used these Neutrogena Ultra Sheer products:

So why did I pick these products?



I chose Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair line because it's the fastest retinol formula available--results in just one week!

Retinol is clinically proven to reduce the signs of aging and Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair contains Accelerated Retinol SA, which is a scientifically proven to be superior to other forms of Vitamin A in its ability to penetrate the skin's surface.



Many dermatologists agree that using retinol (found in the Rapid Wrinkle Repair) and the broad-spectrum sunscreen (found in the Ultra Sheer line) together can help fight the signs of aging AND prevent new damage. It's the ultimate power-duo, y'all!


And here is my 7 day diary:


I used the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair serum during the day and then topped that with the Neutrogena Ultra Sheet Liquid Sunscreen. Sometimes I would use the moisturizer instead of the sunscreen. And if I was outside I would use the stick version of the sunscreen. The eye cream and the Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer I always used at night. 

I feel like the changes were noticeable to me, with fewer appearances of wrinkles around my eyes. The products were easy to use and didn't irritate my skin. My skin felt hydrated and worked well under makeup, as pictured above. I was very happy with my results!

But I want you to try these products as well! It's time for a giveaway!

Giveaway will include: 
Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer, Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair, Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30, Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Serum, Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream, Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Liquid Daily Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 70 and Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face + Body Stick Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 70.
