A little over a year a go, Maybelline released their Lash Sensational mascara, and the beauty world went crazy. Including me.
To this day, I think that Lash Sensational is one of the best mascaras I’ve ever tried and it’s also one of my favorite drugstore products. Maybelline just released a new version of Lash Sensational: Lash Sensational Luscious. Here’s what Maybelline says about their product:
“Reveal layers of softer, denser lashes. Unique mascara formula is blended with precious oils. Removes easily with soap and water. Our Fanning Reservoir Brush envelops lashes with precious oil-infused formula from root-to-tip while fanning out lashes.“
Why I love it:
-I got my Lash Sensational Luscious in Blackest Black, and it’s a very intense color, almost ink-like, which I love.
-gives really nice length and volume at the same time
-I love the matte black packaging
-it doesn’t “crack” or make my lashes feel dry
What I don’t love:
-I absolutely loved the wand/brush in the original Lash Sensational: it had a curved brush that lifted my lashes and separated them very nicely (you can find my review and swatches here). Lash Sensational Luscious has a very different brush that doesn’t provide that lift and doesn’t separate the lashes very well.
-the formula is very, very wet, but dries quite quickly, so that’s a plus. Because of how wet the formula is, wiping excess product before using this mascara is a must for me- otherwise my lashes look like a clumpy mess.
I think that this mascara is pretty awesome, but like I said, you need to wipe off the excess product before each use to get great results. It definitely provides more volume than the original Lash Sensational, but one of the main reasons why I loved the original one so much, was because of how natural it made my lashes look. Lash Sensational Luscious can easily turn clumpy, if you’re not being careful, but if you take your time while applying it, you will love the results.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious: none, one and three coats.
Have you seen this mascara yet? Do you love the original Lash Sensational as much as I do?
