Maybelline Lash Sensational

Saturday, 11 November 2017


Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara is all I have seen on social media lately - loads of people have been sharing how great it is. I've been meaning to pick up a new mascara for a while so I took it upon myself to see what the fuss it about. When it comes to mascara, I love a big wand, that way I know that each and every lash, big and small, will be covered in product. I thought to share my thoughts with you...

Packaging
The pink and black packaging is simple and classic looking. The effect that the mascara will give your lashes is clearly written on the tube itself - very handy when picking from the vast number of mascara's available to choose from.

Wand
The Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara has a curved brush wand. Personally, this type of wand wouldn't be my first choice - I like a classic wand with thick bristles that really gives volume to the lashes. However, the wand does comb through all of my lashes, even the small ones! I do find it tricky to get to the little lashes right in the corner of my eye with a big mascara wand, but the Lash Sensational coats them pretty easily. The curve of  the wand helps get right into the root of the lash, achieving a curled and thicker lash effect. I don't know if it's just me (it probably is), but sometimes I end up poking myself in the eye with the mascara wand... For some strange reason, I'm thinking it's because the wand is curved. I find myself doing it more often than usual with this mascara :-( 


Overall Effect
 I do like the mascara, but I don't think it's going to become my favourite mascara. The wand definitely separates my lashes and adds length, but personally, I'd like a bit more volume. 

Update
Since writing this post, I have been using this mascara every day and have grown to love it. I think it just took some time for me to get used to the curved wand. Typically, I do apply more than one coat of it, but I'd do the same with any other mascaras. As gross as it sounds, I think I prefer the mascara more, now that it is not brand new. Dryer, clumpier mascaras tend to give me the volume I want in my natural lashes. If you haven't tried this mascara, I would recommend you try it for yourself!

Have you tried the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara? What were your thoughts?

  1. I have this mascara, but waterproof version, and I really like it. I'm still learning to use the curved wand tho! I haven't used mascaras in a long time, because I have such a teary eyes, so I need a good waterproof. This is the first one that works for me!

    1. I'm the same as you! My eyes have a tendency to leak (I call it leaky eye haha), but this one works ok for me. How have you found the waterproof one to remove? That's the only reason why I tend to stay clear of waterproof mascaras - they are too hard to remove!

  2. I used to really like this mascara! I prefer a curved wand but I found this one hard to use at first, too.

  6. Great review! At the moment I'm obsessed with the benefit roller lash, But maybe this will be a great drugstore option.

  10. I've been trying the waterproof version of this mascara and I really do like it but the one issues I have is that the wand is so flexible. If I press too hard, it's not good.

    1. I think I know what you mean! The shape is also something that takes some getting used too.

  11. I love this mascara, it' one of my favourites! I also find it works best if you leave it slightly open for a few days because it dries it up a little so it's easier to work with :) If you're looking for some mascaras which are cheap and add volume then I'd definitely recommend Essence x

    1. Thank-you for the recommendation Kirsty - I’ll definitely have to have a look at Essence. I have heard that their lip liners and blushes are great also! It is gross but I do rather a drier mascara haha! x

  12. yep - i always find that mascaras when i first buy them are a total nightmare, far too smooth and wet. after a few days/weeks though they get a little dried out and clumpy and i much prefer them! ive not tried this mascara before, im currently loving miss hippie mascara, have been using it for around a year now!

    1. It's so weird how it works like that isn't it?! Ooo I'll have to have a look at that one!

  13. This used to be one of my favourite mascaras, although I did go through a fase where I really didn't at first. I guess when it dries down a bit it becomes more volumising; Just wait and you'll see!

  20. When I first used this mascara I actually hated it, then I kept using it and then ended up really liking it. I think the wand takes a bit of getting used to as well.

    1. Totally the same as to how I found it - maybe it just took some getting used too.

  21. I have always seen this mascara, heard good things about it but I always gravitate towards L'Oréal for mascaras and now Benefit Real is one of my favs. :-)
