  • "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''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!

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.

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.

To begin, I have been through 3 bottles of this mascara! It is my holy grail! I would defiantly recommend getting the waterproof version over the regular. I also opted for the very black shade because I have dark lashes. The mascara is very buildable and has a good brush, so you can have a fresh no-makeup makeup look or you can layer it to have a more dramatic look. The price is sooo affordable, especially for the quality of the mascara. I have worn this for two days straight, and even after swimming in the ocean and pool (and maybe a little crying), the mascara looked like I had just reapplied it. One thing I would recommend if you purchase this product is to have a good makeup remover because I have figured out from trial and error that regular remover (like a face wipe) doesn't get all of the mascara off, but that is because it is just doing its job of being waterproof! To summarize, I absolutely recommend this product if you are looking for a mascara that won't budge and makes your lashes look thick and long!  Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara, Fanning Brush with 10 Layers of Bristles (Maybelline® Lash Sensational Mascara - Waterproof Very Black)

It’s a great mascara to have on hand. I have found it to be a bit pricey for a “Drug Store” mascara. However, I usually use my eyelash curler 1st and take a soft small tooth brush to separate my lashes then Apply the Maybelline Lash Sensational® Washable Mascara. I lightly brush my lashes so the separate as this can clump at times. It’s great to layer on though. I usually add to the outer lashes. When all is dry just quickly give one more light curl and go! It lasts & it’s a good ‘go to’ in any city as you can find it anywhere if you’ve you’ve forgotten your favorite.

On my way to a funeral I realized I had no waterproof mascara and had no time to research for a good drugstore option. I ran in, grabbed this one as a pretty blind choice and man am I glad I did! This has become my go to, I really like this mascara. I feel like it lengthens and thickens my lashes and I really love the wand that comes with it. Clean and doesn’t come out with a ton of clumps all over it. Great waterproof option - looking forward to trying the regular version out as well!

I purchased this mascara to replace another maybelline mascara that I hated. I had read the good reviews, but I was skeptical. I get Birch box and have gotten some amazing mascaras in it...but I just can't rationalize spending $20 for mascara. So I tried this. I didn't like it at first because the wand is plastic...not the brush type, which I prefer. But then I learned how to use the's like a combo wand of every type out there! It has you covered from every angle...and man, I love this stuff! My eyes don't go a day without it

I liked this a lot for the time I was trying it out but it wasn’t an “oh I HAVE to repurchase this because it’s so good”. I would prefer this over a lot of mascaras I already have in my collection but this wouldn’t be the first one I would reach for. I like the rubber bristles and the consistency of the formula even though it was a little more on the wet side at the beginning. Overall, really good mascara for a good low price point!

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.
