Bat For Lashes - Lash Sensational Mascara from Maybelline

It's been a while since I've done a beauty post, but I wanted to write about an amazing high street find I've recently fallen in love with. I feel like I've spent ages hunting down a non-clumping, lash lengthening magician of a product, and Lash Sensational Mascara from Maybelline does just that.

The mascara comes with a wand designed to catch every single lash, even the tiniest of them. It takes a little bit of getting used to as it's easy to catch the side of your eyes with the outer-bristle design. However once you've got the hang of the wand wiggle, you're left with flutter-worthy peppers which are well defined and clump free.

The brush is actually really clever - it features short bristles packed closely together on a curve, and it ensures that the mascara meets the root of the lashes. The longer bristles comb it out to the tips, and it just takes a coat or two to achieve lashes with volume. The formula is buildable without clumping or flaking, and even on the most humid of days, doesn't leave you with the dreaded panda-eye smudge.

If you're looking for a full-on false last effect, simply use a fan brush to distribute some setting powder over them before applying the mascara on top. It helps to extend the lashes if you want a little more oomph.

Until next time,

  2. Yves Saint Laurent's Baby Doll is one of my favourite mascara's, although a little pricey! The no clumping of this mascara looks pretty decent though :)


    1. For a budget drug store product, it's a pretty nifty product. :)
