I have a real soft spot for Maybelline mascaras so I didn’t hesitate to pick this one up when I was in New York last week. I tried it and loved it, and when I got home I found it was everywhere! There’s a massive ad campaign for this mascara so you will probably have noticed it too. I am so glad that Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara is here in the UK already because it is brilliant (and pretty cheap too).
My favourite Maybelline Mascara is The Rocket which I think is so good, but I have to say, I think this one out-performs it.
Now apparently there’s a technique for getting the best out of this mascara that involves a little phrase called “Learn the turn!”
“1) Step 1: Use inner bristles to capture even the tiniest lashes 2) Step 2: Turn the brush around. Use outer bristles to volumise the look of longer lashes”.
I have literally only just read that as I am writing up this review, so I think that although these steps may maximise the results, you can pretty much apply it any way you like and still get a great effect. It is super black, gives the lashes a good curl and is very lengthening.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara – Before & After
Applied to one eye (guess which!!?):
It’s really effective, I love how black it is, and the best part is that you can achieve such a difference in just one quick coat. Great! There has been a tiny bit of flaking by the end of the day but seriously nothing I can’t cope with and certainly not a deal breaker.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara is available now and you can pick it up for just £5.99 at Boots which is a serious bargain. Boots is currently running an offer on Maybelline makeup so now might be a good time to try it.
