Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

The Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara is just one of those beauty products I knew I had to try. I’ve heard too many amazing things to not give it a go so I took the plunge a few weeks ago and this is what I think about it so far.

The brush itself is very similar to the new Benefit Roller Lash Mascara and the L’Oreal Butterfly mascara, with a curved plastic applicator at the end with shorter bristles on the inside curve and longer on the outside. This helps to apply the right amount of product to the lashes and the curved shape really helps coat the whole of the lash line as well as separate the lashes. At first the formula feels quite wet and can make your lashes quite clumpy but after a week or so of drying out it thickens up and creates a clump free formula!

Unfortunately this didn’t volumize my lashes as well as I thought it would. It’s more of a lengthening mascara but once layered with another volumizing mascara it works really well. It doesn’t smudge or transfer despite my lids sometimes getting oily and I reckon it holds up pretty well throughout the day.

Repurchase? Yes.

    I'm currently using this mascara and am loving it! For me it keeps the curl to my eye lashes all day and applies just the right amount of product xxx

    Ah it's a shame it doesn't give much volume, that's the thing I look for the most in a mascara! xx

    I get pretty oily lids too, and I simply love most other Maybelline mascaras so I definitely need to try this one. I've seen it on offer (as an introductory thing?) in a couple of places too, so there's no excuse not to get it! 🙂 Wendy xx

    Personally I found it pretty volumising but I guess that's the thing with mascaras they're so personal! This is definitely my current fave 🙂 xx
