Today I have my review for the new Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara. Lash Sensational was released for Spring 2015. If you read my March Favorites post, then you already know that I am really enjoying Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara. It gives me a lot of length and a beautiful fanned out effect that I love. It is hard to do mascara reviews because mascara is so subjective. We all have such different needs when it comes to mascara. For me, I look for a product that gives me length and volume in one coat, and that doesn’t clump or flake. (I can’t stand spider lashes.) I feel like Maybelline Lash Sensational really delivers.
Here is what Maybelline has to say about Lash Sensational: “Lash Sensational Mascara is the first patented fanning brush with 10 layers of bristles to reveal a full flourish of lashes. Liquid Ink formula coats from all sides for a sensational full fan effect.” So, let’s talk about this brush. It has a slight curve, and the bristles on the wand are different sizes. The inside of the curve and the tip of the wand have short bristles, good for getting to the base of your lashes. The bristles get larger on the side and the bristles on the outside of the curve are long and give lashes the “full fan effect” that Maybelline promises. Here is a closer look at the wand.
Now let’s see Lash Sensational in action. The top photo is my naked eye. All I have done is curl my lashes, though my super straight lashes do not like to hold a curl. As you can see, my short, stubby lashes need a lot of help. The bottom photo has one coat of Lash Sensational. You can see it is a vast improvement. I like to stick to one coat when possible because I feel like piling on any mascara weighs my lashes down too much. I’ll do two coats if I have to, but I love mascaras like Lash Sensational where I can get away with just one coat. I love the length it gives me. There is a little extra volume, but the wand does a great job of separating my lashes and making it look like I have more lashes than I really do.
For me, Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara is a keeper. Long fluttery lashes are my preferred look, and Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara gives me what I need. I had no issues with flaking or smudging, and I like the formula a lot. Everyone has different needs and preferences with mascara, but I think it’s a great formula for me. Maybelline has become my favorite drugstore brand for mascara. Between Maybelline’s The Rocket Mascara and now Lash Sensational Mascara, Maybelline is doing it right. What about you?
