Morning all! Mascara is one of the few products I rarely gush over, as long as it makes me lashes black, a little more full but not too spider leggy, I'm a happy camper. I'm also a firm believer that the all mascara itself is the same, its just the brush that differentiates them. Well, since discovering this mascara, I have been reconsidering all my essentialist mascara beliefs, say hello to Maybelines's Lash Sensational!
I first saw this on a YouTube tutorial a month or so ago and thought it looked really incredible at lifting and separating the lashes without having to apply a thousand coats. Minimal work but maximum effect - just my kind of mascara I thought. Since then, it seems to have blown up and it if wasn't for the recent release of Benefits's Roller Lash, it'd be the mascara of the moment.
The packaging is a pretty shimmery lilac colour with a pointed lid which it easy to hold when applying. The brush though, oh let me tell you about the brush! It's a plastic comb (as opposed to bristles) but it's curved so it fits right into all the nooks and crannies and helps reach every tiny last little invisible inner eye lash. Although the brush appears quite fat, it's tapered so the narrower end works a treat for the bottom lashes too. I don't know about you, but I think it's rare to find a mascara that works well for both the top and bottom.
Just like I thought when I saw it on YouTube, it appears apply easily without having to go in for a second or third coat. It lenghtens and separates but the formula isn't clumpy so it doesn't leave your lashes feeling heavy. The formula itself is quite wet but which I like as its much easier for when applying multiple coats. My favourite part though is just how amazing the brush is at combing through the lashes when applying which really helps with separating and creating that enviable fan look.
As it's fairly new, I got mine in Boots for the introductory price of £5.99 but its £7.99 normally. While it's not an absolute bargain, it's the average price of a drugstore mascara and I definitely think this one is worth it. I'm wasn't loyal to any particular mascara's before I tried out this one, but I think it just might be my new favourite!
