Battle of the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara's

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara has been a firm favourite of mine for around a year now and it's my go to mascara as I know it will just work for me without fail, when I knew my brother was getting married I really wanted to use my lash sensational but it's not waterproof so I went looking and hadn't realised they done it in waterproof formula so I knew I had to get it.
Upon looking in Boots for a little browse I just so happened to see they had lash sensational in another formula, luscious with oil blend. I knew I had to add this to my collection and try it out.
I decided I would do a battle of the Lash Sensational Mascara's - which formula wins me over?!
Lash Sensational, Original
As I said previously, this has been a firm fave for me for about a year now, the wand is a curved silicone wand and I don't even need to use eyelash curlers with this, it curls them and keeps that curl for a long time too. It can transfer on to my lids if i'm not careful to set my eyes properly and it's super easy to take off
Lash Sensational, waterproof
This is exactly the same as the non waterproof mascara except it's a lot harder to come off, which you would expect from a waterproof mascara I just felt there was too much tugging at my eyes *wrinkles stay away* I would definitely use this for events though just not everyday wear.
Lash Sensational, Luscious with Oil Blend
I was really surprised when I opened this mascara up as the wand was different, it's still a silicone wand but it's not curved, this is a tapered wand chunky at the bottom gradually getting slimmer to the top. I wasn't wowed when I used this, it seems to be a lot deeper black in colour than the other two which I really like but it felt too wet and clumped my eyelashes slightly, I had to go in with the original one to separate and give them more of a lift.

The winner for me is definitely the original, I love everything about it from the wand to the formula and it's so easy to get off with no tugging.

What is your favourite mascara? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. The only one I've tried is the original! I don't think I've been able to find the other ones where I live

  2. I have to agree with you on this one, I feel like nothing will ever beat the original one!
