Recently, I've been using the Maybelline 'Lash Sensational' mascara and I've been dying to share my thoughts on it with you guys. It's a fairly newish mascara from Maybelline and really, Maybelline never go wrong with their mascaras. Some how, like magic, they always get it right?! Buuut, dare I say it - I actually hated this one when I first tried it.
(Yassss, the NYC photo diary is on the way, do not fear. I stupidly took over 300 photos, and now I must begin the long, harrowing task of picking which pics to use *see no evil emoji here*).
one - why didn't I take a before picture so you guys could truly see how much of a difference this mascara makes.
two - why on earth did my foundation photograph so cakey? It did not look like that in the flesh, trust me. Eeeep how awkward.
But onto the mascara - when I first bought the Maybelline 'Lash Sensational' mascara, I hated it. Yup. Hated! It applied really gloopy, no matter how little I tried to apply to my lash and for some unknown reason, the product ALWAYS transferred to my upper eye lid. It was like there was too much product on the lash and it needed somewhere else to go. Not a cute look when you're out and about. I'd liken my look at the time to upside down panda eyes. So so cute.
I got a little frustrated and as a result, I threw the 'Lash Sensational' mascara to the back of my make up drawer and tried to forget about it - until recently that is. I gave it a second chance and I'm so glad I did.
Since I last used it, the product seems to have dried up a little, it applies a lot better and doesn't transfer. It isn't 'dry' but just right. Before, it was just super liquidy. It's really hard to describe but it just wasn't ideal. Now, however, it applies perfectly. The wand, which was the main reason for me purchasing in the first place, has a really intense curve with smaller bristles on the inside which really helps lift the root of the lash and fan out your lashes. The edge of the wand has these amazing tiny little bristles which are perfect for reaching those stubborn lashes on the corner of your eyes. All without getting mascara on the corner of your nose - I'm a sloppy make up applier rly guyz.
Overall, I'm a massive fan of the Maybelline 'Lash Sensational' mascara. It gives my eye's a little bit of natural looking drama with the twirl of a wand. It's also super buildable for transitioning your look from day to night.
Have any of you tried this? What were your thoughts?
