Today I picked up the Maybelline Lash Sensational Lash Multiplying Mascara (9.5ml/£7.99), the official mascara of London Fashion Week. I know the last thing I need is another mascara, but they’re my weakness! Maybelline claim that Lash Sensation’s “1st Layer-Reveal Brush captures even the tiniest lashes and volumises the look of longer lashes for a layered, multiplied lash look”. After recently trying out Benefit’s Roller Lash, Maybelline’s offering had a lot to live up to.
The packaging is sleek and pretty with a rose gold finish similar to that of Roller Lash, and that’s not where the similarities end. The innovative brush is also curved and contains 10 layers of bristles, in 6 different sizes, designed to grip on to the root of the eyelash, defining each layer and creating a wide-eyed fanned out effect. The ‘low wax’ formula also claims to give an intense black look without sticking lashes together.
As you can see from the photos above Lash Sensation gives a lovely wide eyed effect. Lashes are defined, separated and lengthened. My lash line looks thicker and even the tiniest of lashes have been captured. Maybelline Lash Sensational Lash Multiplying Mascara (9.5ml/£7.99).
