Today I will be reviewing the Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Full Fan Effect Mascara. I’ve had this mascara for a couple months, find out why I think this is one of the worst mascaras out in the market.
Benefits: Reveal layers of softer, denser lashes, Unique mascara formula is blended with precious oils, Removes easily with soap and water ” – Ulta
I was expecting this mascara to give out a fanning beautiful effect, boy was I wrong. First let’s explain the benefits.
-Reveal layers of softer, denser lashes
The wand heavily clumps the product leaving lumps of mascara in the root of my eyelashes. It’s very hard to get an even application because of the excessive product and clumping. So I am never able to get soft lashes.
To fix this, I have even tried removing some of the mascara off the wand before coating my lashes and that seems to work, but gets annoying after a while. I have also tried getting a clean lash brush to get rid of the excess but it makes my eyelashes clump even more so.
Denser lashes ? Well if you mean lashes full of product, then yes this mascara does give you denser, heavier lashes.
-Unique mascara formula is blended with precious oils
The mascara formula is definitely unique. I haven’t seen a formula like this in another mascara. Blended with precious oils, I can’t comment on that but I’ll give Maybelline the benefit of the doubt.
-Removes easily with soap and water
No this formula cannot be easily removed with soap and water. It takes forever to remove and you need more than soap and water. Coconut oil comes in handy with mascaras like these.
The formula for this mascara is super dark and wet. It applies heavily onto lashes and takes a while to dry. It has one of the wettest formulas that I’ve tried out in a really long time. I dislike wet formulas because they take forever to dry and I’m usually in a hurry to finish my makeup.
Packaging / Wand: ★☆☆
The packaging is great. The mascara wand brush has short bristles with gaps in between them, because of this it allows the mascara brush to hold more product, inundating your eyelashes with mascara in one swipe.
$8.99 and you get 0.32oz of product. Ulta is having a sale. When you buy 1 product, you get 1 at 50% off. Buy it here.
Every time I wear this mascara it always seems to flake. Not sure if it’s because I get oily in my cheeks or because of the mascara. Other mascaras I use don’t do this, but then again this is one of the clumpier mascaras I’ve tried.
You will have a hard time removing this mascara. Even though I bought the regular washable mascara, it still takes a long time to remove. I have an easier time removing eyeliner and any other makeup than removing this mascara.
It’s good to know that my eyelashes are on the longer side. I don’t have a lot of eyelashes but the couple of lashes I do have a pretty long so it’s possible that this mascara just doesn’t like cooperating with my lashes.
The only thing that I think is good about this mascara is the price. Other than that I wouldn’t reccommend it to anyone else.
If you’re in a hurry or like drier mascaras like I do, then this is not for you. On the other hand, if you enjoy a clumpier, denser lash and have tiny, thing lashes then you might enjoy this.
I will not be repurchasing this. I will keep being faithful to my L’Oreal Telescopic Carbon Black Mascara while I figure out what to do with the Lash Sensational.
