Review: Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

In the way of mascaras, Maybelline have never let me down & the Lash Sensation isn't any different. I've tried both the waterproof formula & the original formula, I find both great for different reasons.

I did some research over on the Maybelline website & this is what they claim this mascara should be like. 'Revels layers of softer, denser lashes. Unique formula is blended with precious oils.' Also; 
  • Fanning brush with ten layers of bristles to reveal every lash. 
  • The inner bristles reach a hundred percent of tiny lashes while outer bristles fan out lashes.
  • Liquid ink formula builds coat after coat on each individual lashes with zero clumps.

When they say waterproof they mean waterproof, once you apply the mascara to your lashes it really isn't going anywhere. I've been swimming at the beach, I've had a shower & I've even slept with it on at one point, I think you're going to be safe with this one. The only issue I think some people might have with the waterproof formula is that it is quite hard to get off at the end of the day. I personally have tried a bunch of different make up removers, micellar waters & although some have managed it get bits & pieces off, I haven't managed to find a make up remover which is able to get it off efficiently without having to really scrub at the eye area. However one product that I have found to work magically with removing this mascara is coconut oil. I find that the coconut oil really helps break down the product leaving it super easy to remove. 

I have also had a chance to try the washable formula & I find this formula great as well. It wears a decent amount of time however I do like the waterproof formula better for holding the curl of my lashes. I find the only real difference between formulas is that one is waterproof & one is washable, more easy to get off at the end of the day. 

I definitely think at the end of the day it is going to come down to the fact of what you plan to do that particular day. I also what to briefly mention that the formula in both mascaras to start off with is quite wet & with the first couple of uses it can clump a little bit if you have to much product on the wand. I find that this is something that is common with many mascaras.

At the end of the day I would recommend both formulas & it comes down to personal preference.
