Maybelline have released a relatively new mascara which is being compared to another brand new release the Benefit Rollerlash, so I just had to pick it up and try it for myself. Since Boots had an offer on at the time I also decided to pick up one of their glosses to add to my collection since that is one area I am lacking in.
Now is this Lash Sensational Mascara similar to its competitor from Benefit? Yes it's very similar from the wand to the formula, but there's a few slight difference if you're being super critical like I have been. The first difference I noticed is that it can be a lot easier to go over board with this Maybelline version as it can get quite clumpy if you try to layer it too much (that could also be due to the formula being a tad too wet for the time being though). As you can see in the image below it gives off an amazing curl and length to my lashes, but unfortunately this doesn't last as well as the Benefit version which stays put all day long. That is probably the biggest difference between the two but considering the cheaper price, it's to be expected. I still love this mascara regardless and it will definitely keep me going until I can get my hands on the Benefit version, which is definitely more of a splurge for me.
I have tried the Coloursensational Gloss before in the shade Pink Shock and I loved everything about it, so this time I decided to pick up another pink shade but one that has a slightly more nude finish to it and that is the shade Fabulous Pink . The formula of this gloss is amazing for the price, non sticky and actually lasts quite well on the lips considering it's only a gloss. It applies effortlessly and just glides on the lips using the wand applicator. The creamy texture of this might not be as glossy as other glosses out there but it's moisturising as it keeps my lips hydrated all day which is very important for me. From swatching a variety of shades in store this gloss definitely packs a good punch of colour to it so if you're going to pick up a darker shade you will not be disappointed. I will definitely need to step away from the pink and try a few other shades from the range because they are just fantastic.
