Thanks to TikTok, many drugstore beauty products have gone viral, and the Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara is just one of those products. Videos and tutorials shared on TikTok can gain traction very quickly, and the Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara is the most talked about mascara right now, so I knew I had to give it a try.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara
Generally speaking, I’m a big fan of Maybelline mascaras. Their Falsies Mascara is one I’ve been using on off for over ten years, and their Lash Sensational Mascara is also one of my favourite affordable mascara. The Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara intrigued me, as it’s part of the Lash Sensational collection, with the same metallic pink packaging.
I was lucky enough to receive the Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara in a press pack, which played a video when you opened it, and it was a video player showing the viral TikTok video. The video shows a woman with the mascara applied to one eye, comparing her bare lashes to her lashes with the mascara, and the before/after is amazing. Her lashes look thicker, much longer, and almost look fake they’re that long!
“Sky High lash impact from every angle! Lash Sensational Sky High mascara delivers full volume and a limitless length look. Our exclusive Flex Tower mascara brush bends to volumize and extend every single lash from root to tip.
Washable mascara formula infused with bamboo extract and fibers for long, full lashes that never get weighed down. Allergy tested. Ophthalmologist tested. Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. Removes easily.“
The Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara has a long, very narrow wand with very short bristles. The wand has a great deal of flexibility, in that it wiggles as soon as you touch your lashes. Some like the flexibility, and some don’t. If you’d like to know a comparison, it’d have to be the L’Oreal Telescopic Mascara, with the same ‘wiggle’ during application.
It does take a few uses to get the hang of it, but I actually much prefer the flexibility. I don’t like the stiff, sharp brushes as they feel uncomfortable along the lash line, and can feel a little ‘spiky’. The bristles on the wand are synthetic plastic bristles, and the narrow wand allows you to get right into the lash line without catching your lid.
The Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara does an amazing job at lengthening the lashes, which I didn’t expect at all with my very straight, very short lashes. It doesn’t offer very much curling action, but what I have been doing, is using a mascara like the Benefit Roller Lash Mascara first, and use the Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara as the second coat, as they give you the best of everything together.
I really like the formula of this mascara too. It leaves me lashes feeling soft, but it lasts all day without crumbling, smudging or flaking during the day. If I had to choose curl or length, I’d choose length, as you could easily use a lash curler before use. I can totally understand why this mascara has been raved about so much on TikTok, and I’m so glad I’ve finally been able to try it.
