So I am a mascara junkie, but I'm also on a budget which has lead me to have to experiment with drug store brands in order to achieve a "falsie" effect. I bought the Maybelline Lash Sensational at Target for about 9 dollars and I bought it on a whim because I needed masacara, but they were out of the one I have sworn by which is the Butterfly sculpture by L'Oreal. ANyways, I noticed that this mascara gave me very long looking eyelashes which was able to make my eyes look bigger and overall for me to look less tired. It was more of a natural looking mascara as it built more length rather than thickness.  However, I've only had it for about two months and it is already starting to dry up to the point where the formula comes out ashy rather than in liquid that the downside of drugstore brands I suppose because I've had this experience several times. Overall, I do recommend if you are looking for something affordable and that gives good results, but do not expect it to last long in your vanity because you have to use a lot of the product to get the results you want and also it dries up quickly which leads it to be unusable.

I had tried every mascara that the drugstore had along with quite a few prestige brands as of late and couldn't find one that was worth the hype. That all changed when I tried this. My lashes are straight and thin so I need a volumizing formula that is stiff enough to hold a curl without clumping. Soft lashes just don't cut it for me. This was a godsend! My lashes look so thick and long!The brush really gets to every single lash and fans them out exactly as described. All of the tiny lashes at the inner corners of my eyes get coated smoothly and it really makes a difference! The formula is thick and stiff enough to hold a curl without making your lashes feel like spikes. The wide comb at the top of the brush makes it easy to flick out the ends of your lashes and comb through for an even more wide eyed look. The black that I chose was very dark,enough to cover my blonde lashes and got right to the roots. I suggest using a makeup remover because even the washable formula leaves flakes under my eyes of I just try washing it off along with my face. I am a convert and I hope they never discontinue this mascara.

I have long eyelashes, but it isn't as noticeable unless they are curled. My lashes are also thin, and not too sparse, but I am not happy with the volume either. I look for a more volumizing mascara than lengthening mascara. My 1st time using it: If you are looking for a lengthening mascara that curls, then yes this it. While I am already blessed with long eyelashes, this made my lashes so long they reached up to my eyebrows. They also curled my lashes effortlessly which I loved, because now I don't need to use a lash curler. However, I have very thin lashes, and this didn't exactly give me the volume I was looking for. On the contrary, this mascara actually made my lashes look less voluminous, because my lashes started sticking together. My 2nd time using it: While I was mildly disappointed with looking like I had fewer lashes than I would if I had went all natural, I was impressed with the formula of the mascara.

Review for: Very Black more...
I tried this mascara a while ago, not right when I came out but with in a couple months of it launching. A girl that worked at the Walgreens near my parents house told me how she used it after I complimented her lashes. Her lashes were absolutely gorgeous!! So long and so much volume and just so perfect, so I asked her. She told me and then showed me where it was and I bought it right then and there. BUT i could never get it to work for me. I loved the wand, it was really nice for separating the lashes. The formula would cake and flake though. I kept playing with it and trying new tricks but it became such a hassle and I never felt my best when I wore it in public. I'm a huge lash person though. Everyone has their 'thing' that has to be perfect or they just don't feel right . . . Mine is my eye lashes. I would still recommend this mascara though because a few of my friends got it to work for them and they liked it. The one with glitter in it (if they still have it??) was awesome. I would use it as a thin top coat.

Unfortunately, this product didn’t work out for me the way it did for most others.
I bought this product with high expectations and hopes it would be my new go-to mascara, however, it was the opposite.
I opened the product up and after using it on my eyelashes I noticed the formula was super sticky, and the wand actually made it really hard for the product to get on my lashes. Sticky mascara?! NOPE. NOT DOING IT.
I put it away for a couple of days and then came back to it.
I opened it and out came a VERY twisty/curly wand. I actually have a picture posted on my profile of it.
The wand actually fits back into the tube because the top of it is super flexible, the the rest of it is super hard and does not fit on my lashes.
I honestly think I received a bad batch, but I think I won’t be rebuying.

This is my favorite mascara now. It’s a drugstore product that works like a high end one.
The brush is amazing - it’s not thick so you can apply in evenly on tour eyelashes and not miss a single hair. It is easy to apply it on your bottom lashes as well.
Because of the quality of the brush, it perfectly separates your lashes and makes them look longer and fuller.
Another amazing think about it is that it’s super easy to take off. With other mascaras I’ve tried I have to ise 2-3, sometimes 4 cotton pads to remove the product of my eyelashes and I still sometimes wake up with mascara smudged under my eyes. This one, howevwr, is so wasy to remove - 1 cotton pad and I’m done!
I haven’t tried the waterproof one but the very black one is my go-to.
Definitely recommend to everyone.

Best drugstore one I’ve tried I think. I wear contacts so I can’t use any mascara that flakes off or transfers even a little. I haven’t found any drugstore mascara that didn’t smudge and give me raccoon eyes or flake like crazy. This one doesn’t flake, looks nice, and doesn’t smudge throughout the day. It gives more length than volume but I’m okay with that. The shape of the wand is slightly curled but it’s not thick so I can use it on my top and bottom lashes... that and the price makes this one a big winner for me.

My holy grail mascara!! I can't remember how I discovered it since I had been a long time Loreal mascara wearing girl, but this was a game changer for me. My lashes are sparse and stick straight out but this mascara gives me length and curl and they hold up throughout a long work day. I get compliments on my lashes and honestly have not considered buying any other mascaras. With the exception of mascara samples I get if I purchase through Sephora, or a subscription box, I won't use anything else. A million thumbs up!!

This is, hands down, the best mascara I have ever used. I’m not sure if it’s the awesome and versatile brush shape or the formula but my lashes are ginormous with this mascara. I have no issues with clumps or globs of product. The brush lengthens and spreads lashes out making them look even fuller. I find that if I pause and move to the other eye it makes it difficult to come back so I just work one eye until I’m done. I don’t have fall out during the day and it stays on even through watery allergy eyes... and no issues washing off with face wash. I get compliments on my lashes when I wear this when I otherwise never have. I’ve tried many other mascaras at this price point and none even come close. Make this mascara a staple in your beauty care products!

There is a good reason I'm not giving this the full five stars even though I absolutely love it, and that is because I can't seem to find a way to not get it all over my lid when I flip the wand to the convex side to really comb my lashes. Otherwise, this is literally the holy grail drugstore foundation, and I will never buy another one as long as I live. It lengthens my lashes as well as gives them amazing volume that stays all day. I get compliments on the daily and people ask if I'm wearing false lashes! It's a great investment for amazing looking lashes when you're in a rush because even just two coats make my lashes look amazing! I wholeheartedly recommend!
I really want to try this mascara! What would you rate it out of 10???

Is this mascara easily removed by water? Whenever I take my mascara off it never always comes out and I end up with black under my eyes in the morning, does this happen with this mascara?
