My Favourite Drugstore Mascara

The hype is seriously real!

Ah, the famous Maybelline Lash Sensational. You’re my fave.

This post has been floating in my drafts for probably about two years now and I’ve just never got round to shining a light on it on my blog, until now.

I used my Benefit Roller Lash mascara (one of my fave high end mascaras) most days for a month or so, but then one day recently I randomly decided to use my Maybelline Lash Sensational instead. I’ve always loved it but omg, I seriously forgot quite how good it was.

The shade in the photo is Intense Black, but at the moment I’m using Black, which is still soooo black. It’s seriously amazing at livening up those lashes! The wand is a really nice shape and size as well. I can wiggle through my lashes really easily and the curved shape allows me to coat each and every one. The packaging is also really nice, girly and sleek, which I love. The colour of the tube always makes it easy to spot in my makeup drawer, so I can find it and pop on my mascara really quickly if I’m in a rush.

The consistency is what makes this mascara so great. It’s not too wet that it clumps all of your lashes together and is messy to apply, and it’s not too dry that you don’t get enough pigmentation and overall wow-factor. It’s a nice, relatively thick consistency which just applies so nicely to the lashes and gives amazing (drumroll please…) length AND volume. You know when you put on your mascara and think damn where did those lashes come from?! I am quite lucky to say that I have naturally long eye lashes naturally, but when I have been wearing this mascara, some people have asked if I’m wearing fake eyelashes or have had eyelash extensions. So that’s a big green tick for me!

Can it get any better? YES. YES IT CAN! This mascara lasts all day on my lashes. No joke, I go to work in the morning with it freshly applied and I come home and it looks exactly the same. If I’m heading out again, I might touch it up slightly but it’s really not necessary at all. I don’t know what they’ve put in this stuff, but my god it works. It stays put all day, it doesn’t smudge or crumble under the eyes, it makes my lashes look insane and it’s only £8.99.

Here’s what the mascara looks like on my lashes (hey huge pic of me)…

I’ve repurchased this mascara many times and I will 100% continue to do so. Maybelline, I salute you!

Have you tried Maybelline’s Lash Sensational mascara? Do you love it as much as I do?
