Hello Everyone! 🙂
After an Easter hiatus, I’m back and ready to update you on the best of beauty! Today I have a mini review to chit chat about, it’s a Maybelline mascara that I bought a few weeks ago from the drugstore, so you may have read reviews of this already. It’s the Maybelline Lash Sensational, the newest mascara brought out by the brand. At only £7.99 it’s a steal, especially if bought from Boots because at the moment they have a 3 for 2 mix and match on all cosmetics! It claims that ‘the brush captures the tiniest of lashes and with a more liquid based formula and less wax it creates more black and defined lashes.’
Usually I don’t stray from my favourite mascaras, but I wanted to try one from the drugstore that was different to the Maybelline The Falsies that I love so much. The one thing I don’t like about the Falsies mascara is that the colour can be quite an ashy black. Now I’ve read the blurby bit on the Lash Sensational it makes me think it’s the wax count that creates the ashy look.
I’ve tried the Lash Sensational and my verdict is that I like it! Don’t worry I will say more than that… It is a very black, very liquid formula which means it doesn’t get claggy or clumpy. The plastic brush is something that I usually don’t like, but in this case it is so rigid that it ensures your lashes are separated and an equal amount of mascara is applied to each lash.
I’ve taken a little before and after picture to show you (ooh get me) below:
The mascara is really lengthening and so far hasn’t got clumpy! (I have only been using it for about a week or so). The only thing that I don’t like about it is that it’s really hard to get off! I use the Simple Eye Make Up Remover so if you make your cotton pad REALLY wet and hold it on slightly longer than normal it isn’t too bad. Even with my Clinique Take The Day Off cleansing balm it’s still quite hard to get off.
All in all, I really like the formula (it’s definitely long lasting) and the curved plastic brush is a surprisingly brilliant performer :).
Have you tried this mascara? What’s your favourite drugstore mascara?
Thanks for reading y’all 😀
