Review: Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara

Every time I go to the US, I find that drugstore brands have released so many new mascaras that I end up buying A TON.  I recently read a beauty blogger’s comment which said that life is too short to try to work with bad mascaras, and I truly agree. With all of the different mascaras on the market today, my dream mascara should be attainable!  This is a review of the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara, which was a gift from a friend.

What it does: (from the Maybelline website)

Did you know your lashes grow in more than just one layer? New Lash Sensational Mascara unfolds layer upon layer of lashes for the new full fan effect.  Try New Lash Sensational Mascara from Maybelline New York for a sensational full fan effect. Our first patented fanning brush with 10 layers of bristles reveals a full flourish of lashes. Liquid Ink formula coats from all sides.


Price: As with all US drugstore products, the price will vary depending on where you buy it. lists this product for $9


Availability: This and other Maybelline products are widely available in the US, in supermarkets and drugstores, as well as online.


Wand: This product has a rubber bristle wand, which is curved on one side.

  • The formula of this mascara is very smooth, and caused minimal clumping.
  • Because the bristles at the tip of the wand are small, it was easy to get into my inner lashes



  • Mascara tended to clump in the base of the wand, so I needed to wipe it off every time I used it
  • This mascara caused smudging under my eyes, which is a deal breaker for me.


Would I repurchase? No.


While this was not a super volumizing mascara, it made my lashes look appropriate for every day. Unfortunately it smudged under my eyes!


Hope you enjoyed this review!
