Like most of you reading this, I was stricken down with love when Maybelline released the Lash Sensational Mascara last year! For a drugstore brand it was such a good mascara for an affordable price- it’s very rare to find someone who dislikes it. Since then I believe there has just been the waterproof and extreme black versions, now we have the luscious! I’ve seen it on a few blogs but no adverts, so of course as a lover of the original I HAD to try this one and see the differences!
I hope you enjoy this little review, do leave you thoughts below! 🙂
~ Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascaras – Original .vs. Luscious ~
Firstly, I’m glad they’ve kept to the same tube and simply just reversed the colour scheme- the rose gold colour is just so pretty!
Luscious – ”Our multiplying lash effect mascara envelops lashes with a luxurious oil-infused formula from root-to-tip to reveal layers of softer, denser lashes.The UK’s #1 mascara* just got even better! New Lash Sensational Luscious mascara contains a luxurious oil-infused formula for a softer, denser multiplying lash effect. With our extraordinary patented fanning brush, the 10 layers of bristles reveals a full flourish of lashes. The liquid Ink formula coats from all sides ensuring full coverage.”
Original – ”Our first Layer-Reveal brush with 6 lengths of bristles captures the tiniest lashes you didn’t know you had, volumises & defines the look of longer lashes. Result: A Layered, Multiplied Effect. Create A Sensation! New Lash Sensational Mascara from Maybelline New York Reveal the Look of Layers & Layers of Lashes for a Sensational, Multiplied Lash Look. Our first Layer-Reveal brush with 6 lengths of bristles captures the tiniest lashes you didn’t know you had, volumises & defines the look of longer lashes.”
Brushes / Applications / Formula
Apart from the different shapes, both brushes have the same soft plastic look and feel. As the original bristles were what made it work so well it would have been silly to change them!
They both work well with your lashes and is quick to build up a full lash look. With a soft plastic material they aren’t ‘scratchy’ on the eyes either.
With the added ‘oil’ element to the Luscious I thought the formula may be wetter and possibly with less hold. But gladly I was proven wrong! I’m tempted to say it has a glossier finish with the oil..?
Overall, I love these two mascaras! I think I slightly prefer the new Luscious; the different brush gives a full lash look within seconds. Plus whatever these are are / do works wonders with my lashes! I shall still continue to have both of these in stock- I should have tried them together…
If you see the Luscious on offer I would highly recommend giving it a try- I can’t wait to see what fabulous mascara they give us next!
