After using my Fairydrops Scandal Queen Mascara until it had dried up (and honestly far longer than was sanitary, sorry), I began hunting for a replacement. I’d read many a glowing review around the launch of Maybelline’s Lash Sensational mascara and although it looked great, the lack of waterproofness put me off. It was only when I was trawling the aisles of Boots when I discovered the brand new Lash Sensational waterproof edition and in the basket it went.
As I’d never had a good experience with Maybelline mascaras before, I was dubious on whether it would live up to my impossibly high expectations. The rubber brush combines short and long bristles and is unlike any other mascara I’ve used. After curling my lashes and removing some of the excess to avoid clumpiness, I use the shorter bristles to apply the mascara and sort of roll the brush so the longer bristles distribute the mascara and separate lashes. It sounds like more of a faff than it is so don’t let that put you off. What’s left is super long and defined lashes which is pretty amazing. Yeah, so there could be a little more volume but it rates so highly in every other aspect, I’m willing to let that slide.
I’ve used this pretty much everyday since buying it and it rivals some of the high-end mascaras I’ve tried in the past. Well done Maybelline, you may have made my favourite mascara yet!
