New | Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara Review

It’s no surprise that Maybelline’s latest mascara has taken the world by storm. Not only are they the drugstore kings/queens of mascara, but it’s the latest edition to their Lash Sensational mascara… which let’s face it, is a classic! So when they launched their Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara a little while back I knew I HAD to pick it up. And here I am sharing with you my thoughts.

Before I get cracking, this is what it says on the Superdrug website…. ‘Super lengthening, super volumising. The sky is no longer the limit with Sky High mascara!’.

Price & Packaging

So being Maybelline this mascara is pretty affordable: it’s £9.99 (making it either the same price or £1 more than the original Lash Sensational Mascara, depending on the site). You get 7.2ml of product, which is quite a lot less than the original mascara which is 9.5ml of product. The tube is the same shade of metallic pink as the original Lash Sensational, but is this time a standard circular bottle with a debossed name. It’s relatively attractive, but also quite light.

The Applicator

As with many of the Maybelline mascara this has a plastic bristle. It’s relatively straight up and down, but with a slight angling off towards the end. However, the most noticeable thing about this mascara (and what I tried to portray in the photo above) is just how bendy this mascara is! However, when applying it to your lashes, it doesn’t seem to move about too much, or at least it doesn’t in the way I apply my mascara, but you do find you don’t have to use the brush completely straight on, as it will bend to match your lashes depending how you hold it.

How Does It Apply?

I actually really rate how buildable this is. With one or two coats it’s like a standard mascara; i.e. good amount of volume and length but nothing wild and you can get away with it being ‘natural’… though clearly not! However, add one more coat and you’re suddenly talking next level volume! I can’t say I see a lot of length, but my lashes are quite short, but I really do get a lot of super black, thick lashes with this! But somehow it doesn’t get all spidery

Overall thoughts?

For how I would use this, I would say it’s about on par with the original Lash Sensational mascara, but with the lash sensational coming up cheaper, it’s probably what I’ll reach for more often. However, if you like a thick, nearing on clumpy lash, then this will be the one for you! Worth its hype? I think so

Have you tried this mascara? If so, what did you think?

Success! You're on the list.

  1. I’ve been hearing a lot about this mascara so it’s great to know it’s worth the hype! However, I would probably get the original because it has more product for the same or slightly cheaper price.

  2. I’m not a massive mascara person because my lashes are naturally really short so my best friend is false lashes hahaha, but this sounds really good! Thanks for sharing x

  3. Maybelline do the best mascara! I want to try this one out but right now I never wear makeup because I never leave the house so it would be a waste.

    1. Hahaha! That’s totally fair. I still wear it as part of my ‘you’re now up and it’s time to work’ routine, but I can see why people have stopped xx

  4. I haven’t heard of this product before. You have shared a really detailed post with great photographs. It is interesting to see what other people are using. Thank you for sharing.

    Lauren –

  5. I am seeing this mascara EVERYWHERE and I am getting serious fomo! the wand looks quite close to the kind that I like – these days I wash my best performing wands and use them in all of my mascaras!


    1. I actually prefer this one, I find it more buildable (i.e. you can do ‘normal’ mascara lashes or volume but not too clumpy… or you can go full on clump if you want), which I find the L’Oreal one is sort of one way or the high way! x

  6. I have never heard of this mascara. I haven’t heard of the Maybelline brand either. I guess I am late to the game haha but it does sound like a really nice product tho. I will have to try it.

  7. I really want to get this but it’s not yet available in Malaysia! I think once I got it, I’m going to love it because I’ve watched tons of people’s reviews on Youtube and the fact that it’s in the Lash Sensational range, I’m already a fan. Thanks for the review, girl! xx

  8. I haven’t tried this mascara myself but I’ve heard so many people rave about it. I like that the wand is bendy, making it so much easier to apply.

  9. I didn’t know about this new mascara. This is a drug store mascara that I could definitely try as a cheap substitute for those I bought at Sephora. We don’t really go anywhere right now with the pandemic so if I want to use a mascara for any reason, I rather use a drug store one. Thanks for the review.


  10. I have not tried any Maybelline mascara before but would love to try this one. I personally like big thick lashes. I love mascara that makes my lashes look like I’m wearing falses. I also like that Maybelline is not too expensive but I saw in your review that this mascara has a little less in its product verses other Maybelline mascaras. Do you know if Maybelline are good for watery eyes? I have really watery eyes and sometimes it hard to find mascara that will stay on my eyes.

    1. This one will give you that! I like that it’s buildable! I have to say my eyes only water when it’s windy outside (which it is now), I haven’t found it ran or anything, and I got a little bit of transfer on my lower lash line, but nothing noticeable x
