Review: Maybelline Lash Sensational Lash Multiplying Mascara - Brown

Black version of Maybelline Lash Sensational Lash Multiplying Mascara is my favorite mascara ever (so far). I accidentally grabbed a brown version while I was shopping in France, so I finally tried it out. It's just as lovely as a black version. 

Luckily in France they have the same plastic packaging around it as in USA. I find it much more consumer friendly. There have been multiple stories of people opening up mascaras in our drugstores and then putting them back, like nothing happened. It's so disrespectful and  unhygienic. I'm a bit put off from buying mascaras in our drugstores, because I just can't know if it has been opened yet or not.

The packaging of the mascara is the same as a black version, mauve pink colored with black details. In it is 9.5 ml of product and this one cost me 9.57€. I believe the price in Slovenia is around 11€. I might be wrong, it has been a while since I last bought it here. 

The brush has a curved wand just as the black version. I like the two sides. One with longer silicon bristles gives you more volume and packs on more products, while the shorter side defines the lashes and keeps them clump free. The brush is one of the reasons why I love this mascara so much. It just separates so well and still gives them enough volume

I took a photo of both wands. The brown version as well as the black one. It's hard to notice any difference at all, but if you look closely, you'll see that the brown version is slightly lighter and it has a bit warmer tone to it. The color Brown is actually more like a very dark taupe brown color. It's not nearly as light or as warm, as I expected it to be. 

On the actual lashes you can't even see that much of a difference. It's only that the black version is more intense and makes your eyes look darker. I love pairing this brown shade with brown eyeliners or more warm toned makeup looks.

Formula is the same as with the black one. Not too dry nor too wet. The more it sort of gets older, the drier becomes and more volume it gives. I like it because it gives you volume, but never looks clumpy. Definition is one of priorities for me. It also holds the curl really well. It drops just slightly after applying it - like with most mascaras, but then it holds the curl through the whole day. I never have problems with smudging and it lasts through sweat too. Which is great for a mascara that isn't even waterproof. 

On the photos you can see my curled lashes, then it's my lashes with one coat and on the last photo I have two heavy coats on. 

At first I thought I'm not going to even use this brown version. For some reason I expected it to be very light brown and that would just look weird with my dark brown eyes. But it turns out, it's a very dark version of brown and it goes so well with a brown eye liner. Just looks slightly lighter in color and more subtle. The formula and wand is the same as with the black version. Since I love the black version so much, I also love this one. If we had this color in Slovenia, I'd probably even buy it again. 


  1. I had tried some Maybelline mascaras in the past but they weren't my favourites. Now my favorite is the Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara, I love it so much! But after your review I might pick this one up and try it to see if I can fall in love with Maybelline mascaras xx

    1. I haven't tried that one from Essence. But I hear a lot of good things about most of their mascaras :). Maybelline is actually one of my favorite mascara brands. For some reason, I really liked most of their mascaras, but this one is definitely the one I always recommend tot hose that want definition and volume. Let me know, if you liked it, if you pick it up ;).

  2. You looks so pretty!! and your Mascara review is really awesome. Thanks to share this beautiful Mascara review. It's really helpful for eye makeups. I believe makeup is an important part of women's life. I love to use mascara like this one for my eye and my favorite Liquid Matte Lipsticks for my lip. I can't imagine a single day without my makeups.

    1. Thank you <3 I love a good mascara as well. Much needed for every makeup look :).
