I'm a big mascara person, and have been on the hunt for a HG mascara to use on a daily basis for work and play. I've tried countless of drugstore and brand name mascaras, and have been falling in love with the Maybelline ones, esp the Lash Sensational.
This is considered a dupe to the Benefit Roller Lash in both the brush look and what it claims (to create length and curls). I have short, straight Asian lashes that require a good lash curler to create a good curl, and am in need of a good mascara that will hold the curl.
1) The package is quite nice. Very "thick" but nonetheless still manageable to hold and maintain control when applying mascara.
2) The formula is nice. I've tried applying this without curling my lashes, and got a slight curl. Unfortunately I had to curl my lashes to get the look I was hoping to achieve, and Lash Sensational was able to hold the curl, which is not what other mascaras can do for me, and provide such a nice length that it made my eyes look alive. The waterproof version left very minimal smudges or flakes during the day, which is key for me as I see patients regularly and need my A-game look on all the time.
3) You cannot go wrong with the price. I was lucky enough to get it on sale at Shoppers Drug Mart, but its regular price still beats the other brand-name competitors out there
I have been using this for 2 weeks now, and notice that as the formula becomes less runny, it applies a lot better. I'm very happy with this mascara.
