Hey guys, how are you all?
I know, I know, I’m late and I hate myself for it, but I’m going to be reviewing the Maybelline lash sensational mascara. And honestly, reviewing a mascara takes so much, there’s only so much one can say about a mascara. Hence, this is going to be a quick AF post, have fun.
First, let’s give it a look.
PACKAGING: First and foremost, can we take a moment to fall in love with the beautiful chrome purple-mauve dusky gold packaging. It’s so chic and cute. If you know me, you know that I love Maybelline mascaras and the reasons include the packaging besides the awesome product.
CLAIMS: Exclusive fanning brush with ten layers of bristles reveals layers of lashes for a sensational full-fan effect.
Suitable for contact lens wearers.

HOW TO USE:
Step 1. Use inner curve to reach the roots of lashes.
Step 2. Sweep from the root to tip of lashes.
Step 3. Do not let mascara dry in between coats.
Step 4. Easily remove mascara with Maybelline Expert Eyes® 100% Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover.
BRUSH WAND: So in a sentence, I absolutely love the wand on this one. I love the Colossal Volume Express mascara wand too, but I’m thinking I could incline towards this one just a little bit and I’m going to give you solid reasons. One, it is curved so it is good for holding up the curl of the lashes. Two, it’s easier to get into the inner corners of the eyes with this one. Three, the bristles are nicely places, they’re denser on one side and not so much on the other which helps with lengthening and voluminizing on the same wand.
FORMULA: In the first impression, the formula is light weight and reasonably long stay. I picked the washable version and I don’t expect it to be on there forever, it stays put for good 5-6 hours. However, the formula is definitely a little wet for my liking. I like a moderately dry mascara, they’re easier to work with and don’t get all messy.
FINISH: I would actually say that this one gives more lengthening effect than volume. I don’t mind that but if you’re looking for a super voluminising mascara, I probably won’t suggest this one, you could try the Essence I love Extreme mascara for that. I have a feeling, I’m going to love mixing the two for more dramatic party looks and use just the Maybelline lash sensational for everyday (yeah, I love a dramatic eye even everyday!)
So, I’ll quickly summarise whatever I’ve been blabbering.
Wand is a full yay!
Easy to reach the inner corners (brush is totally awesome.)
No clumping upto three coats
Not too much volume
Formula sort of liquid (it’s a personal thing, not a problem for everyone.)
RATING: 4.5/5 🙆🏻
Thanks for stopping by.
Loads of love,
