I am having a mascara love affair. It doesn’t happen very often, it has been very short lived, but it’s a love affair nonetheless 🙂 You might think I’m crazy, but I have a bit of a pained relationship with mascara. Getting one that holds a curl, that is lengthening, doesn’t smudge or flake and adds volume is no mean feat!

Well I can safely say after putting the Maybelline Lash Sensational (in waterproof) to the test, it ticks all the boxes for me.

irish beauty blogI think when it comes to mascara, you know within a few times of wearing, sometimes even one wear, that it’s the one for you. I have been wearing the Maybelline Lash Sensational everyday for the last two weeks. Not a long time but I think it’s enough time in mascara world to give an honest opinion.

And also the proof is in the pudding too right?

I have pretty minuscule, straight lashes, as you can see here.

I harp on about this all the time, but I am a big fan of the eyelash curler, I use it everyday without fail, unless I’m wearing falsies. It just opens my eyes up more and obviously…well curls my lashes 🙂

So here are my lashes curled with the Shu Uemura eyelash curler.

And then we get onto the fun part, and actually one of my favourite parts of applying makeup. I think your lashes can make or break a look. I personally like as much lash as I can possibly get even during the day, but specifically length, so I lash on the mascara (ha get it lash on!) Ok, enough jokes, here’s the Maybelline Lash Sensational applied to my lashes.

I love how separating and lengthening this mascara is. I had tried the non waterproof one previously and it was a lovely mascara, it just didn’t hold the curl for me. This one does, and it’s really black and it gives a good amount of volume and it doesn’t clump and it doesn’t end up halfway down my face at the end of the day.

I also really like the curved wand, I wasn’t sure I would to begin with but I think you get the best of both worlds from it. You can always turn the spooley and use the straighter side, if you prefer. It has different sized bristles aswell, which seems to work really well for coating the lashes without clumping up too much. I have to admit though, I like a little bit of clumping, so I do layer a fair amount of mascara on. Is that bad? it’s only personal preference anyways sure :).

Although the Maybelline Lash Sensational has a wet formula, which I am not always a fan of, because I think it can weigh lashes down, I don’t think this happens with the Lash Sensational at all, the formula just seems to work!

 

So there you have it, Maybelline Lash Sensational in waterproof, it’s a yes from me 🙂 I picked mine up from Boots and it costs €11.99.

Thanks for reading, and let me know your favourite mascara, I am always on the hunt 🙂

    • I use an oil based eye makeup remover and it does the job brilliantly. I’m left with no residue. Waterproof mascara is always going to be harder to remove unfortunately xxx
