Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara – Very Black Review

Hello all,

I am not at all pro at eye makeup and I am just about taking baby steps learning whatever I can via IMBB. However, one thing which I have gained confidence to flaunt is mascara and that leads me to experiment with various mascaras to find out which one works best for me. Today, I am reviewing the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara in Very Black. This product was launched by Maybelline in Nov 2014 and comes in 3 shades:

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara Very Black

My Experience with Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara – Very Black:

Packaging:  This mascara comes in a lovely dusty rose packaging. The chubby shape of the tube is similar to Maybelline’s other mascaras, but the subdued pink color gives it a more mature look compared to some of the other Maybelline mascaras which have funkier packaging.

Brush: Now, the brush is the USP of this mascara. It has a curved fan-like head with longer bristles on one side and smaller ones on the other. The curved head makes it very easy to cover all lashes in one coat.  I first use the side with smaller bristles to coat the lashes as it is quite convenient to reach the roots and sides. Then, I follow it up with the side with longer bristles to comb and spread out my lashes. I just love how the brush makes the application so much easier and better.

Formula:  I found the mascara quite smooth to apply. It does not clump on the lashes and spreads quite easily. My lashes did not get crunchy or hard even after putting 2 coats on. It stayed put whole day long with no smudging.

This is a “washable mascara” and hence it is not waterproof. I am fine with this as I find removing waterproof mascaras quite a chore. But, if you are planning to wear this mascara to a wedding and you are the types who cries at the time of “bidaai,” then please stay away from this variant of the mascara 😛 There is another “waterproof” variant available as well for folks like you.

Finish:  I love the dramatic finish that this gives to my eyes – it is super black in color, separates my lashes very well, provides a lengthening effect and in general opens up my eyes due to the fan effect. Major love!
