lashSENSATIONAL by Maybelline

   As someone whose eyelashes fall out ridiculously easy, I'm very picky when it comes to eye makeup... I was going through my YouTube feed and noticed a few weeks back that +Fleur DeForce had mentioned this product, so I headed to Walgreen's and picked up the lashSENSATIONAL mascara by Maybelline.
   It has been a while since I've trusted a drug store mascara, but I gave it a go... And I'm happy to say, it surpassed expectations!

   When I'm hunting for any makeup that goes on my eyelashes, I want the following:
  • Curls (or at least helps keep the curl from my eyelash curler)
  • Some extra volume is a plus
  • Dries quickly (doesn't stay wet/sticky)
  • No eye irritation
  • Comes off without pulling eyelashes out
   My eyelashes are long, but grow straight out; eyelash curlers are a must. lashSENSATIONAL does a good job at holding a curl with one-two coats (depending on how thick your lashes are), and dries within 30 seconds... I always choose the blackest formula, and for this mascara it is 00 Blackest Black. I really enjoy the way the formula coats every lash without tugging on them, but it is a bit (almost) sticky while being applied. When my hands shake and it inevitably gets on my eyelids, I wait for it to dry before attempting to remove it; less messy that way... The wand has short, harder bristles in the inner scoop of the brush for adding volume and making sure the root of the lash is completely coated. The outer scoop has longer, more flexible bristles to help add length and separate lashes. I enjoy the versatility in this wand, because it gives options for different looks without having to use multiple products!
   This mascara does not add too much length to my already long eyelashes, and the amount of volume it adds to my lashes make them look like they are healthy and full. I would imagine on someone with regular, healthy lashes it will add some nice volume... I, of course, have gotten this mascara in my eyes in the past, and it did not burn. Of course, you should always wash out your eyes after something like this happens! When I wash off lashSENSATIONAL with micellar water, makeup wipes, or even just water in the shower (VERY GENTLY stroking my lashes) the formula becomes like a gel, easily and gently coming off.
   Even though I like my lashes to look like I'm wearing falsies, I really love this mascara! lashSENSATIONAL mascara makes me feel like I have healthy, beautiful eyelashes and someone who doesn't suffer from hair loss like I do will probably love the extra umf that it gives to their lashes as well... I rate is a 4.5/5, only because I wish mascara would make my eyelashes look fake, and definitely intend on purchasing more!
