If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’d know that I’m very picky when it comes to mascaras. They usually make my lashes look horrible or wonder if I’ve actually applied any mascara in the first place. I’m happy to say that for the first time in a long while, I have gotten lucky with mascaras. In today’s post i’ll be talking about the new Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara*.
First glance at the wand, it doesn’t look too special or fancy. This really doesn’t bother me, in fact I quite like it. I’m getting a little tired of all the gimmicky mascara wands that are too difficult to use or hold too much product creating a messy mascara situation. The wand is simple and straight to the point.
Application, the formula is of a normal consistency. Not wet, not dry. I always curl my lashes before hand and with many mascaras, after application they instantly droop which is why I decide to reach for waterproof formulas. This particular mascara however, did not droop!!! It deserves all three of those exclamation marks honestly. My lashes were lifted, separated and also had extra volume.
Few hours later okay my lashes were not as on point, but they still looked mighty fine. Having oily skin and oily eyelids is really problematic for me with normal mascaras and throughout the day I usually get little black marks all over my eyes, but this mascara lasted without panda-ness for a solid 8 hours when I tried it.
Overall, I definitely think that this is a great new ‘drugstore’ mascara to try. I used to love Maybelline mascaras an incredible amount especially in later high school and don’t really know why I stopped using them. After this I’m going to be more open minded and be sure to try out a few more once my current ones run out.
