What’s that? Another Maybelline mascara review? Well, if you insist! The Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious mascara is a variation of the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara that I reviewed recently. However, they don’t have many similarities apart from their names.
As usual, I chose the darkest option, Blackest Black. It is definitely a deep, rich black, which I love.
I also love the matte black packaging. I know it will get dirty so quickly in my makeup bag, but I love how chic matte products look!
This mascara claims to provide a “full fan effect,” by coating your lashes with its “precious oil-infused formula.” Well, I’ll give them one thing. It does COAT your lashes. Warning: if you’re a 2 or 3 coat mascara kind of girl like me, DON’T try that with this mascara!
As you can see, this wand comes out with a LOT of product on it, and, regardless of how I apply it, a second coat always results in clumpy, wet lashes that I can’t separate. In these pictures I did 2 “coats,” but I never inserted the wand back into the tube between coats to grab more product. There is plenty (probably too much) from the first time you pull out the wand. It’s also super wet and takes forever to dry. I have be careful not to get any of this on my eyelids after I apply it, which is something I never usually have to worry about.
Thankfully, it never flakes throughout the day, which is great.
In the picture below, I switched the side of my face I’m holing the mascara on to REALLY liven it up for y’all. Yikes…think I need some new selfie makeup poses?
Do I love this mascara? No. Do I like it? Meh. I’ll probably keep using it, since I already have it, but it’s definitely not my first choice. If you’re wanting to try a new mascara, there are much better options out there like the original Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara or Maybelline Falsies mascara. They’re both more buildable without the issue of clumps.
Maybelline rarely lets me down, so I’m hoping if I keep working with this mascara, I’ll get better at applying it. Have you tried it? Any tips for helping it not clump?
I hope this review was helpful for you, and that you’re having a great week!
