  • "HOLY. GRAIL. MASCARA. No kidding I am on my 3rd tube of this stuff. It lengthens, it thickens, it gives me dramatic lashes. I use the waterproof kind so that it holds my curl all day. " in 1141 reviews
  • "My all time fave drugstore brand mascara! It lift and separates my lashes without any clumping. It reminds me of Benefits Roller Lash but for a cheaper price. I had no clumping or fallout from this mascara. It's really great and I would highly recommend this to anyone!" in 330 reviews
  • "Great coverage , you can see the liquid formula, it's not clumpy or thick. Lengthens and add volume in just 2 coats. Long lasting comfortable wear. the curved brush catches even the tiniest last. In a blind test I would not have thought this is a drugstore brand, it's comparable with expensive department store formulas. Very impressive. Cons - hard to remove. I recommend using a cotton swab dipped in your strongest eye makeup remover to really get in between the lashes for the best removal. " in 294 reviews

I was super skeptical of this DS Mascara....especially because I purchased the Black Maybelline Lash Sensation that contains a completely different brush wand that I didn't like at all! But after a few make up artist told me it was comparable to an all time fave of mine Benefit Roller Lash Mascara, I figured I would consider picking up the Pink Maybelline Lash Sensational next time! Well that was over 2 years ago! And finally I decided to purchase and review it based on all the recommendations and how hype this product has been in the last few years! I am so so impressed with this $10 DS Maybelline Mascara! No shade but I stick to Benefit Mascara, L'Oreal and 1 Maybelline Mascara: Full 'n' Soft...it's a lifetime holy grail go to mascara of mine! I haven't had much luck with Maybelline Mascaras! Always clump,never lengthen, volumize, darken and all the things we want in a mascara! But whoa! This version of the Maybelline Lash Sensational is amazing and is now a part of my go to mascaras, maybe used more than my all time fave!?! It's wand it perfect, and brush is so amazing! Brush is curved like a wide U and this allows for it to grab to the base of the lashes and hug them to the tip coating every lash in mascara and providing dark long volumized lashes in one swipe!? And it's like $10-12 and found everywhere!? I love it and may not purchase my Benefit Mascara. Okay that's a lie but I easily will use these 3 tubes I purchased of the Lash Sensational and may even stock up on a few more tubes, yeah I will, to keep this wonderful affordable Mascara! I'm so impressed and will easily compare it to Roller Lash and recommend it to anyone that wants a great DS mascara that performs and has amazing results! Great job Maybelline!

Maybelline Lash Sensational is one of the best mascaras available considering both high end and drugstore mascaras. I am currently using my second tube of this mascara. The formula is creamy and different than other Maybelline mascaras I've tried. I loved their Colossal mascara l and wore it religiously for three years until I became annoyed by the fact that the formula was very wet and my lashes felt they were always sticking together- this experience made me stay away from this brand of mascaras for a while until this new Lash Sensational formula came out and I was interested enough to try it. The formula of this mascara is truly unique! Its light, comfortable, doesn't feel heavy or sticky on the lashes, it will dry but can take a little longer than some mascaras to dry. I don't notice any transfer with it and my tube is NOT waterproof. the formula isn't as dry as the Pumped Up Colossal was so it wont dry out quickly, but also not as wet/sticky as the original Colossal. Over time the formula thickens which makes the impact even more dramatic! For me it took about 2-3 weeks of regular use for the formula to get a bit thicker which I read in other reviews might happen, but since I was already liking the mascara it was a very pleasant surprise to see happen! I really love this mascara even more than higher end brands I've tried from Sephora. I curl my lashes with an eyelash curler, then use the short straight bristles to comb through on the first coat, then go in with 1-2 more coats holding the brush so that the longer and shorter bristles comb my lashes. Sometimes I will use my finger to push up the base of my lashes even more. I usually prefer natural bristle brushes but this mascara was easy to work with while providing beautiful results. I didn't feel the need to layer another mascara with it which is what I typically do. It's affordable, dramatic, and wonderful!

THIS MASCARA RIGHT HERE. First off, the last mascara I bought was the Better Than Sex mascara which dried out way too fast for something that pricey, so I decided to go back to drugstore. I will admit I was largely drawn to this because of the pink packaging but I have bought 3 more since because it turned out so well! The formula is easy to put on and holds all day. It can be used for a more natural look without curling or you can lay it on thick curled lashes for almost fake looking lashes. Plus at this price, it simply cannot be beat! I’m not even sure if it’s water proof but it doesn’t smudge easily (lasts through showers if I need it to). But can also come off easily with regular makeup remover or wipes. I’ve had way too many eyelashes get stuck on my eyeball and it didn’t even irritate my eye which is incredible on its own.

Picked this mascara up to try it out after some friends recommended it to me and it was cheaper than my usual Benefit mascara.
It features a double sided wand one curved side for applying and the shorter for combing through lashes after applying.
I feel like this doesn’t give me the volume I am used to, and the applicator doesn’t work for me because I end up hitting the outer corner of my lid every time—and I am no rookie at putting mascara on like a pro! (Lol)
I will give it props for not flaking or smudging during my long workdays though! It stays put! Also comes off fairly easy with waterproof remover.

I’ve been using this mascara for a couple of years now and it doesn’t disappoint. It does not end up cracking and making my eyelashes look like tarantula legs once applied. The mascara gives my lashes more volume and longer appearance. I rarely ever curl my eyelashes but when I don’t, this mascara makes it seem as if I did. A good and bad thing about this is that if I don’t wash my mascara off throughly, I could be 1-4 days with the same mascara with it still looking as if it where fresh. It is a bit difficult to remove, but during showers, I use really hot water and makes it come off easily with my body soap, due to me not using makeup remover or face wash. Other than that, the “blackest black” mascara is my favorite one at the moment!

This mascara has a very special wand that I think will be wonderful for those to really want their lashes to stick out!
I love how one side of the wand allowed me to get those corner lashes and bottom lashes and the other side allowed me really bring out everywhere else. I love a lightweight formula, but this baby appeared to be extremely lightweight. Almost wispy. It barely hung on throughout the day and while I didn’t experience any flaking or smudging, I would have loved to have more of a dramatic result. This mascara can really help tackle many lash problems including thoroughly combing out the lashes and my girls who deal with very sparse lashes will love how the wand can help coat what few lashes usually get missed!

Maybelline is a favorite brand of mine but this mascara is definitely one of my favorites as well . It makes your lashes so long & full it’s great . Amazing price super affordable! And you can pick this up at Target 🎯 ULTA or even Walmart for the best price ! Like 4$ -5$ bucks it’s great. They also have many more products & mascaras that are awesome 👏🏼 so ladies try them out but this one is by far my #1 mascara ! Maybelline Lash Sensational® Washable Mascara

My friend turned me onto this mascara and I’ve been using it probably about a week now. I love the packaging! It’s absolutely beautiful. It goes on super black and so far it doesn’t seem like one of those types of mascara is that’s going to dry out superquick. There are two things that I’m not too fond of and that would be the wand and be careful if you were applying more than two coats because it can get clumpy. I also had a T wee bit of fall out but it was literally like a dot of mascara that fell onto my face and I’ve had way worse with high-end mascaras. Over although I am proud of this purchase and will continue to pick it up.

I just picked this up the other day, realizing I needed a waterproof mascara. The packaging is beautiful, I love the color of the tube and overall look. The mascara itself is also pretty high quality for a drugstore mascara (which I don't use often, but have spent a lot recently). It definitely adds natural looking volume, or if you add on it can be dramatic. However, the wand is not ideal for the lower lash line, it clumped immediately, but after spreading it out, it looked good. The waterproof aspect is great, definitely doesn't come off easy. I'm looking forward to truly putting it to the test all summer at the beach.

I was a big fan of Tarte's mascaras until they got a little too expensive to keep replacing. My friend recommended me Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara and I LOVE IT. I have oily lids and I wanted something that will be long-lasting. Not only did the mascara last me the whole day, but it made my lashes look amazing. I have never had a mascara that lengthens my lashes that much! The brush applicator has two different kinds of bristles. I use the shorter end to define my lashes and I use the curvier longer end to lift my lashes. This mascara has become a part of my everyday makeup routine.

Does this mascara separate the lashes and helps with lengthening too?

Are these actually water proof or if you are in the water to much then it starts to come off.
