Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara | Review

Hello again,

The Maybelline Lash Sensational is probably one of the most talked about mascaras in the world of blogging. I started using it about a month ago after running out of my Benefit They’re Real mascara.

I’d say the most prominent feature to this product is the fact that it’s really lengthening. Paired with a good eyelash primer, it makes my eyelashes really fluttery and feminine. It doesn’t make them look like spider legs, like a lot of lengthening mascaras tend to do, but simply enhances your natural eyelashes.

It’s not the most lengthening mascara I’ve tried, but it provides the perfect length for me. I had tried mascaras in the past that make my eyelashes ridiculously long and I hated the way it looked.


If you’re looking for volume, this mascara probably isn’t for you. However, it doesn’t make your mascara look thin, it merely separates them in a fluttery sort of way. Because of this, this mascara never makes my eyelashes clumpy or too thick.

What I like the most is that although it separates my eyelashes, it doesn’t make them look unatural. As you can see, they’re not perfectly even like false lashes. They look exactly like my own eyelashes, with a little bit of volume and length.


As the mascara doesn’t provide a lot of volume, I usually apply some of my Rimmel Scandaleyes Reloaded mascara first. I only put one coat of it on my eyelashes before using the Maybelline Lash Sensational. Otherwise, my eyelashes will look a bit more sparse than I want them too. I feel like these two together give me everything I look for in a perfect mascara.

If you’re wondering why I’ve only skimmed over the Rimmel Scandaleyes mascara – it’s because there’s a full review coming to my blog really soon.


As you’ve probably gathered by now, this little beauty is definitely worth the hype.

As always, thank you for reading.

Let me know if you’ve tried this mascara and how you got on with it…

  1. I don’t wear makeup, but I have always heard good things about Maybelline. I know lots of people that use this brand.

  2. Jeez you have awesome lashes- even with two different mascaras mine don’t look like that! I currently use Tarte’s Lash Paint mascara, but it’s kind of expensive so I am looking forward to the Rimmel mascara review!

  3. I am still looking for a good mascara and haven’t found one that I love, I am going to have to give this one a try.

  4. I need to try this mascara! I see it all the time and have heard so many great things about it! Thanks for sharing this awesome review!

  5. I am in desperate need of a new mascara, and i havent been able to find a good one. This one adds so much volume to your lashes and looks really natural. I am writing this down so i can grab this the next time i am out at the store!

  6. Great review on this mascara!! I actually have it but am waiting to use it until I finish up my current mascara (I’m close!). I love that it’s very lengthening but still natural looking and will definitely use your tip to use a coat of a volumizing mascara first ^^

  7. I love mascara! It’s always my go to look when I leave the house. Even if I’m in a hurry. Do you know if this is good for sensitive skin? I tend to be allergic to a lot of mascaras.

  8. I came to your blog after you liked one of my review posts ( and I love it! I wanted to leave a comment here because Lash Sensational is one of my favourites, I agree with everything you’ve said here.
