Maybelline Lash Sensational - I Kinda Like It

Maybelline Lash Sensational
Mascaras have never been a makeup item that I have loved. They always disappoint me. I have short, stubby, poker straight lashes and I gave up on the idea of a single mascara giving me enviable lashes long, long ago. Randomly though, I decided to try the new Maybelline Lash Sensational and you know what? To my surprise, I kinda like it.

Now this apparently is a bit of a dupe for the new Benefit Roller Lash that is everywhere right now. And when you compare wands, I completely see why. They both are curved with little spikes that aim to grab and curl the lashes while also adding volume and length. Of course, the Maybelline offering is substantially cheaper (€11.99) which is great for those of us not wanting to splash out.

I have to say I did like the wand. It really does curl the lashes and add a nice bit of length. Even without a lash curler, my lashes looked really curled and pretty great (for me). And when I did use my lash curler, it looked even better. It just made my eyes appear much more bright and awake which I really enjoyed. The negatives? I do find that it tends to smudge under my eyes. But an extra swipe of powder over my concealer seems to stop that from happening.

This mascara surprised me. I actually think it's quite nice. I mean it's not a revolutionary, "where have you been all my life?" situation but I like it and right now, that's enough for me.

Have you tried this mascara or the Roller Lash? What did you think?
