  • "I absolutely adore this product it's obviously a holy grail for me. I have such tiny eyelashes and this mascara does wonders for them. I only tried the original but I can't wait to get my hands on the waterproof." in 204 reviews
  • "This is my new favorite mascara. It gives volume and separates lashes perfectly. The brush is awesome and I highly recommend trying it. " in 165 reviews
  • "Because I love the original formula so much I decided to try the Luscious version. It has all the same great traits as the original long lasting and no flaking. this one keeps my lashes soft unlike the other formula which compares to how a regular mascara feels. this is more comfortable to wear because softer and more movable." in 46 reviews
  • "Maybelline is always super innovative when it comes to their mascaras. I'm trying out this mascara and I have to say I really love it. The bristle design is what really makes the mascara so effective. There's tons of tiny individual rows of bristles in a tapered cone shape with a finite point at the end of the brush. This allows the brush to really grip the lashes from their base and coat them individually from root to tip. The brush really fans out the lashes and the fine tip allows you to coat the small lashes on the inner corners of the eye. The result is really full, fat, fanned out long lashes that really stand out. I always buy waterproof formula because I like my mascara to stay on all day long even through my workouts. Another great product from Maybelline! " in 46 reviews

When I first put on this mascara, I was like wow, because it actually did make my eyelashes look longer. Normally, I have really short eyelashes. I love this mascara because it's extremely waterproof and smudge-proof. It lasted me all day and I was even having trouble washing it off at night. The reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because it does leave clumps on your eyelashes. They aren't the worst clumps I've seen in mascara, but never the less, there are still some clumps visible. If you want a really good waterproof mascara that makes your eyelashes longer and doesn't mind the small visible clumps, then you may want to try out this mascara.

First let me start off with if you are looking for a mascara that stays on all day, through heat, water, tears, ANYTHING, then this is the mascara for you. Once I put this on, it will not move or smudge. It's almost coming to the point where removing this is a problem;) I currently I have the shade blackest black and it is absolutely stunning! This mascara is one of a few DRUGSTORE mascaras that actually make my lashes fuller and noticeable. Before I purchased this product, I had small to medium lashes; however, after using this for now a month, my lashes are almost TWICE the length they were before! Plus it's very affordable. I have noticed such a difference with this mascara compared to several other mascaras that I have tried. The only criticism I have for this product is that I have noticed some black flacks under my eyes and on my lid, but it is not noticeable and it can be removed quickly with a wipe or your hand.

This mascara makes my short lashes look like natural falsies. I'm always on the hunt for a really good mascara for my short, straight lashes and this one is one of the best I have found. My lashes stay curled, and the formula does not clump my lashes together. The waterproof is nice because it doesn't budge, but when you want to take it off, the product gets stuck on the lashes, and an oil based makeup remover has to be used in order to remove it. I really like this product, and anyone with short lashes should consider trying this mascara.

oh my gosh I loved this mascara so so much! It made my eyelashes so voluminous and sleek! no clumps either! HOWEVER the formula made my eyes irritated and red. I have used many maybelline mascaras and this is the only one that I have had an allergic reaction too. It made me sad that I couldn't wear it without looking like I had pink eye :( Maybe its just my eyes though- other than that I love it. I would not recommend to anyone who has sensitive eyes or skin.

★★★★★1 out of 5 stars.
I purchased this mascara because of the brush shape and its claim to give you a "full fan effect." The brush does not fan your lashes as advertised, but clumps them together, creating an appearance of less lashes rather than more. But the problems don't stop there. The mascara is not advertised as waterproof--either on the packaging or on the tube--but you CAN NOT get it off. I have tried using plain soap and water AND makeup remover to remove the product, but even after two or three washings, I am still left with smeared mascara on my eyelids and underneath my eyes. After scrubbing my eyes multiple times, there is always a shadowy, black residue left on my skin, not to mention my eyes being sore from the scrubbing. This is THE WORST product I could ever imagine using.NoI do not recommend this product.

I was expecting this mascara to be great because the other lash sensational mascara (pink tube) is one of my favorites. But this mascara was super disappointing. It was super clumpy & the brush was very weird. It gave my lashes zero separation and made it look like I had 3 or 4 think clumps of lashes. Will not be repurchasing. It did stay on all day & was very black

Honestly one of my favorite drugstore mascaras! I have tried the other formula in the pink tube but I preferred this one. It was a very good price! I always prefer the waterproof formula because it stays all day! I am almost completely out and I will definitely be repurchasing!

Review for: Brownish Black more...
Always on the hunt for something better, I abandoned the pink tube of Maybelline Sensational to try it's matte black friend. Did I have regrets? Every time I used the product.

It is a wet formula, which I did not expect. As I'd never used such a liquid formula before, I would blink and get it all over my lids. The brush is also a downgrade, and I found myself replacing the wand with my sensational after my tube of the original sensational dried out.

The old wand with the new formula? Much better! Still, not good enough for me to repurchase (though I still have the wand!!) What? It's a good brush.

To be fair, I give this 3 stars, but it actually deserves a 3.5. Too bad there's no way to leave 1/2s.

I can and will buy this mascara probably for this rest of my life as long as they keep making it. I love the wand and the mascara product. It goes on very smooth and gets your lashes in every nook and.cranny there is. I buy it in blackest black and come.out looking like a rockstar with. Love the volume and lift I get from this one. 5stars

Is it easy to take it off? And is it as good as the pink lash sensational?

I absolutely am a fan of Maybelline mascaras and I am always looking to try out new ones. The question I have about this one is does it clump? I have found with some other kinds lately that they are a bit more clumpy and I am not into that :) Looking for the perfect, clump-less mascara!
