Now I don’t review mascara much on my blog because I don’t really know what works for me and what I need to make them look great. A friend recommended that I give the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara, I picked up mine from Boots for £8.99. You have the option for normal or waterproof, but I opted for normal because I find waterproof mascara such a pain in the arse to remove. I never really try much from Maybelline, but all I hear are great things about their mascaras which is why I didn’t hesitate when purchasing.
The packaging is black and pink, so it’s already a winner in my eyes. There are 2 crucial components of a mascara and they are the wand and the formula. A mascara could have the best wand ever, but if the formula doesn’t hold the lashes in place all day then it makes the whole thing pretty redundant. The wand on this mascara is quite large and it curves, similar to the Benefit rollerlash. The outside of the curve has longer artificial bristles, whilst the inside has tiny little ones and I find that it really helps distribute the product. I personally don’t like a formula when it’s too wet and I’m not going to lie this is one of those, so to me this quite a negative because it just ends up making a mess. I have been getting better and trying to make it work though because I find that it holds my lashes like no other mascara. A little trick that I use is that once I have applied a layer of the mascara I use a clean spare mascara wand to comb through my lashes taking off any excess, preventing any clumping.
Now I’ve not come across a mascara that’s better than this one so far, but I find mascara is pretty dependant on what that person is looking for. When I have no mascara I don’t look like I have lashes because they are so short and straight and this mascara seems to lift and curl. If your someone that needs that then give it ago, but maybe to avoid clumpiness give my little trick ago. If you do then let me know how you get on in the comments below.
