Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara: Original & Waterproof



It is not a secret around here that this mascara makes my heart beat faster. If you have reviewed this product on your blog, I have probably commented on your post saying how much I love it and how I cannot get enough of it. No review of it has yet been done on this blog (apart from a small mention of it here), but considering how many have shared their thoughts on this mascara out there, I thought it would be much more interesting comparing the normal formula with the new waterproof version. 


Apart from the obvious fact that one is waterproof and the other isn't, the packaging is similar, the wand is identical and the formula smells the same. Yes, I smell mascara…don’t you?! Both also claim to give the same results: “Reveal the look of Layers & Layers of Sensational lashes. Brush captures even the tiniest lashes and volumizes the look of longer lashes for a layered, multiplied lash look."


I already knew the original formula lived up to the product description. Simply put, the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara is wow! The brush works extremely well (no wonders lots of other brands are now coming out with their own version of this), the formula doesn't clump or need multiple coats. Application is smooth and the result is long individual lashes with crazy volume that do not flake throughout the day. It boasts that it is a multiplying lash product and rightfully so. From the first coat you can already see a massive difference, but I usually apply a second one for a more dramatic effect. Removal couldn't be easier, it simply melts away from your lashes with water and a tad of make-up remover. This is by far my favourite drugstore mascara of all time and I am already on my third tube!


Similar to its non-waterproof counterpart, the Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara delivers clearly defined lashes with a beautiful fanned out volumized effect. The brush is identical and it works by depositing mascara at the root of lashes and thus multiplying them. Its formula also does not clump, flake or smudge and one or two coats are all you will need. The only thing to point out is, as with most Maybelline mascaras, they are not messing around when they say waterproof! Taking it off lead to some lashes to fall out and a really good remover is necessary or else this stuff will not be coming off. If you plan on wearing mascara to the beach (which I always do) or on a hot summer’s day, this comes in handy as it will not budge! I found it hard to remove it completely and that is the only thing that I didn't like about it.

Pros:
♥ Well-defined, volumized lashes with one/two coats.
♥ Well-designed wand that produces long individual lashes.
♥ No clumping, flaking and smudging.
♥ Smooth application and long wear.
♥ Easy removal (original formula).
♥ True waterproof wear (waterproof formula).
♥ Affordable price.

Cons:
✗ Difficult removal (waterproof formula).
✗ Difficult application on bottom lashes.
✗ Contains parabens.
Left: Original/ Right: Waterproof . Two coats of both.
All in all, we would have to agree with their names. These really are sensational mascaras! If you haven’t yet tried these I recommend them 100%. At the price of £7.99 you don’t wanna miss out (oh and they are both on sale at the moment in Boots for £5.99).

Have you tried any yet? Let me know below!
Thank you for reading and all the love on my previous post!

  28. I love this mascara so much, and I'm of course bringing it with me to Hong Kong! Might just stick to the ordinary one though. I've never been a fan of waterproof mascaras as they're too harsh on the lashes (:

  35. Lovely review Pam! This mascara has been appearing all over my feeds lately, so good to hear what you think about it! I love Maybelline, but guess another 'con' could be that it isn't cruelty-free? :( Annoying! I would definitely go for the original rather than waterproof xx

  60. I love this mascara too definitely adds volume, but I prefer non waterproof mascaras because I have a hard time removing it. I use the maybelline volum express big eyes mascara and I love it, because it has two wands one for upper lashes and another for the lower lashes, and it makes my lashes look gorgeous.

  66. I think I`m the only blogger that hasn`t tried this, but after this, I might soon. I don`t know why, but I`m not a big fan of Maybelline, I usually prefer Rimmel or Bourjois. Except their colour tattoos and brow pencils which I love I haven`t tried much from them.
