|Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara Review
It’s about time I did a mascara review again here, so here we go! Maybelline’s newest offering is their Lash Sensatonal mascara. It promises to lengthen, separate lashes, and create instant volume. But the unique selling proposition is that it intends to give a good amount of length and volume with zero mess and zero clumps, for clump free, beautiful lashes.
So this is the packaging. It is an ergonomic tube that’s shaped nicely for grabbing. Surprisingly, despite being shaped like a football, it actually can stand on its own. I put it upright beside me as I am writing this post. The diameter of the largest part is about an inch, so it’s a bit bulky, too.

What this means is that the product tends to gravitate towards the core of the wand rather than the tips of the bristles. This means that it really does help to make less of a mess as you smear less product onto yourself in those accidental tugs and touches. I think you get what I mean that with the usual mascara, that when you apply it you have to move around the wand so gently because even the slightest contact of the wand to the skin will leave a stain. This mascara is generally more forgiving as the tips don’t dispense so much product so as to wreak havoc.

But to just generally give an idea as to what’s different with the wand of Lash Sensational, here it is right below the wand of Hypercurl.

And weee, it’s demonstration time! So to give an idea, this is how my lashes look like without anything. I think I can say I have decent eyelash length given our ethnicity, but it’s generally straight and downward pointing.

So this is why I also take much longer in curling my lashes compared to the usual citizen.

This is how it looks like when the lower lashes also have product and after I apply a second coat to the upper lashes. It looks a bit clumpy in the photos, but you kinda have to note that this is an extreme close up shot of my eye hahaha. It’s a lot more natural looking in real life, and as far as mascara is concerned, I would already say that this is not clumpy as I didn’t have to use a comb for my lashes after. I have encountered a lot of very volumizing mascaras but the downside is that I have to comb my lashes after or use tweezers to separate the ends of the lash hairs. For this one, I just had to play around with the wand to get this effect.

This is how it looks like overall. In terms of volume, I can say that it has relatively good volumizing and lengthening properties, though this is probably not the most volumizing and lengthening in the whole portfolio of Maybelline. I really see that what’s special about this mascara is the ease of usage it provides with the packaging, wand, and formula. It’s a good balance of volume, length, comfort (of wear), and convenience.
