Most Helpful Positive Review It gives me life!
This has got to be the best mascara I've used by far. It curls my lashes and keeps the curl the whole time it is applied. Builds very easily without getting clumpy too. As you can see in the picture the left eye has mascara while the right doesn't. A huge difference made in a couple swipes!
Most Helpful Critical Review Really really not for me, not sure what people see in this!
I'm always on the hunt for the *best* mascara, so I research, read reviews, watch youtube video reviews, you name it. Clearly the reviews of this mascara are fantastic but I truly can not understand how that's possible. The brush is that hard plastic kind - as opposed to the soft fiber kind. So i'd repeatedly poke myself in the inner corner of my eye when trying to get the tiny lashes (I've applied mascara 394329875 times, so it's not for lack of experience) The formula is very wet, as in it kind of glides right through them, instead of letting you build up volume. I have shorter, lighter lashes and while this did lengthen them, it just made me look like I had longer, spindly, lashes. Very odd looking. When trying to build any volume at all it became incredibly clumpy. If you have FULL long lashes and just need enhancement, this is probably fine. If you have lashes that actually need the help of a mascara to be fuller/longer then look elsewhere. I actually had to just buck up and buy my old standby L'Oreal voluminous mascara and toss this one. Not worth the few bucks for the hassle.

This is my favorite mascara ever. I will never stop using it. I've tried high end expensive mascara, but I will always use this one
One of my go to's
Emi from PA
I'm not experienced with lashes- but I really love that big full lash look. This mascara is absolutely lovely for me. I have pretty long, naturally curled eyelashes, and this mascara really makes them darker and longer. I usually switch in between this and Milk Makeup's Kush mascara.
Sam from Florida
This mascara does lengthen (not a lot) but it gives A LOT of volume. I loved using the blackest black shade since my skin is dark regular black doesn't really pop but this mascara made my lashes POP! I use a lengthening mascara first then follow up with this best combo EVER. Will be purchasing again got a few lash compliments with my combo.
It does clump and takes awhile to dry. I
Would maybe buy again
Eireann from Colchester, VT
The first application was super wet and clumpy and curling my lashes was a struggle because of it. There was too much mascara on the brush and I found myself having to wipe a lot off the brush before applying again.
Not for straight lashes
Dababy from San Francisco
I'm Asian with bone straight hair, even on my lashes. This is not a light formula to use on lashes after curled with eyelash curler. It turned my lash right back to its natural state lol.
best drugstore mascara ive used
bbcash01$ from Marlboro, NJ
ive tried so many different drugstore mascaras and i eventually came back to this! it lengthens and volumizes and doesnt flake, the only con is that it takes a while to dry. still my favorite mascara-- the brush shape gives a good application and the formula is extremely buildable
Love this mascara

This mascara gives great separation and volume.
THIS IS THE ONE!
Deadlycheese from HOU
I've tried from high end to drugstore mascaras, and the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara has never failed me. It separates my lashes evenly because the brushes bristles are a medium length and hard enough to create volume. Aside from that, it is long wear! Sometimes, when I forget to take off the mascara and wake up the next day, I really don't worry about removing it or apply more because my lashes will still look fresh. Definitely in my make up bag!
doesn't flake, great length
veronica from portland
I've used other high end mascaras like better than sex, Lancome and benefit, this is definitely the best. the formula is a little wet in the beginning but after using it a few times its the perfect consistency. if I'm not wearing lashes this is a must have mascara it makes my lashes look long without clumps and it doesn't flake off throughout the day. I'd recommend an eye makeup remover ot cleansing balm for take off.
My Favorite Mascara of ALL TIME
Riley from Silver Spring, MD
I love this mascara so much. It makes my lashes look like I have a fake lashes on. This mascara is AMAZING!
Brenna T from St. Louis
I recently bought this mascara after seeing it in a YouTube video. I was surprised by how WELL it stayed on my lashes! It didn't settle into my under eye creases, or in the crease on my eye lid. I wore this for over 12 hours yesterday and it barely budged!!! I say barely because at the end of the 12 hours there was slight flaking under my lower lash line, but it wasn't a big issue bc 1) it only started flaking on hour 12 and 2) you couldn't even notice the flaking until you looked SUPER close! Overall I'd recommend this product to everyone, stayed on really well but also removed super easy too.
Auds from Madison
So far one of the better "drug store" mascaras I've tried. I wanted something cheaper for every day use and leave my more expensive mascara for nights out and events. I'm happy so far with this. I really only need one coat to do the trick. More than one coat it starts to clump a little at the ends. Yes, if you don't have a good makeup remover it's hard to get off. I have a good one, so I'm not running into that problem.
I will not buy this product again.
219Fan from Indiana
Hard to remove even using makeup remover. Pulls lashes out while attempting to remove. Terrible!
Best drugstore mascara I have ever bought
Lizh from Linden, MI
Still works good on my old lady thin eyelashes
My favorite mascara!!!
Scar from Fl
I truly love this mascara! It lasts all day and adds great volume to you're lashes. I 100% recommend buying this mascara. My lashes look stunning with great length and volume!!! You won't regret it!!
My new favorite mascara!
Mimi on the go from New Hampshire
It layers well if you want a thicker more dramatic look but still looks nice with a basic coat. I don't typically take a lot of time getting ready and if you have to fuss and put on 10 layers of a mascara to look decent it's not for me. This works perfectly for what I want. 10/10
Lengthening and volumizinh.
Crystalm319 from Miami, FL
The only reason I gave this 4 stars is that it took a while to dry and I had to fix my eye makeup constantly. It does make your lashes long and thick and lasts all day until I removed it.
One of the best I've tried
Victoria from Chicago
Definitely better than a lot of high end mascaras. The brush is a little bit strange, not my preferred shape but it works pretty well.
Abby from Michigan
This mascara is a total dupe for the Benefit Roller Lash mascara. It gives your lashes great volume and length and the curved brush makes the application especially easy for top and bottom lashes.
Rebecca from NJ
This is probably my favorite mascara I own! Between Tarte Maneater and Better than Sex, I'm always reaching for this one! Separates my lashes nicely, super black and gives a nice curl! Definitely recommend!!
CHM0716 from Birmingham, AL
I was trying to buy a cheaper mascara to replace my Too Faced mascara. I had read great reviews about this one. However, this was just as disappointing as most low end mascaras. This left the worst clumps and would NOT come completely off my lashes at the end of the day when I used numerous forms of removers. Some of my lashes even fell out when trying. If you're trying to replace your Better Than Sex mascara, this just isn't it.
Kristy W. from New Hampshire
I saw someone review this product that I trust. I tried it and it worked very well. It lasted all day. The black is true black, great coverage. Builds nice. Very happy with it and will buy again.
I would purchase
Gelly from Bossier City, LA
This mascara is black! The brush helped to separate the hairs to provide coverage! Flipping the brush around was great for the lower lashes! The mascara didn't flake or smudge
Amazing mascara on a budget
Autumnh from AR
So I'm kinda a mascara snob lol I usually buy high end brands because I don't wear it everyday and I have small thin lashes so I put that extra few dollars and splurge on it so when I got this in my vox box I thought well it's a store brand and I can use it as a back up and I usually use 2 different brands one to curl and one to give color and volume so I used this one first and it was Amazing! It made my lashes so long and I costed it twice and didn't end up needing my high end mascara! I love this stuff and I've worn more make up since I've had it so it's for sure worth it as great to use alone
JLB from MD
I've been using Maybelline mascara since I was in college (classic pink tube, green cap) and still love it. I just thought I'd try something new and went with this. I have pretty long, thick lashes that can sometimes have a mind of their own. This mascara does a great job separating at the root and covering my lashes well. It almost looks like I put on falsies!
