A mascara is definitely a makeup product that I can't live without, so I really love testing out new mascaras... as you can probably tell by the increasing number of mascara reviews going up on the blog. Anyhow, I thought it was about time for me to pick up this one by Maybelline. I have seen so many blog posts featuring this mascara and read so many good things about it, I knew it was definitely one that I wanted to get my hands on.
The Lash Sensational mascara has gorgeous packaging and that definitely sold it to me. I love the metallic pink packaging, it's definitely a prettier colour and different from other mascaras out there! The brush that this mascara has is also great. It's a curved brush with little bristles great at getting all the lashes, however I have found that due to the formula of the mascara being quite wet, can get quite clumpy in the brush I have found. Also due to the formula being a bit wetter I find when I apply it, I have to be careful of like blinking straight away or moving my eyes for a couple of minutes until it dries as it can leave little mascara dots on my eyes, and they are quite hard to budge.
Other than the formula being a little wet, I find this mascara so easy to use to create lashes that i'm happy with and love. The mascara is really black and makes eyelashes pop straight away, a bit similar to the Roller Lash by Benefit. It also is great at making them look fuller and curled without any curlers.. I find anyway. However, you do have to be careful with making sure lashes don't clump together when applying, I think this will not be a problem once the mascara is a little bit drier. Another great thing about this mascara is that I find that it lasts ages on while still holding the shape (if that makes sense) and I don't find it to be flakey.
This mascara is definitely one that I would recommend to anyone. It doesn't hurt the bank account as much as one from Benefit would, costing £7.99 from both Boots and Superdrug. But can is also be found on Fragrance Direct for only £4.75 and is definitely worth buying in my eyes.
Let me know what your favourite mascara is, so that I have an idea for what I should purchase next time..
see you soon, han xo
