YSL Shocking Mascara vs Maybelline Sensational Mascara



It isn’t very often that I fall in love with a mascara but I am obsessed with these two. For me a mascara just makes your lashes long and black and that is about that so I never understood how people can justify spending so much on them…

Well, that was until I decided to splurge on the YSL Shocking Mascara and it completely changed my mind about higher end mascaras. I have fallen in love with the YSL mascara and my other drugstore mascara favourite is the Maybelline Sensational Mascara, so I thought I would do a comparison post on the two!

First up is what the brushes are like. For the Maybelline Sensational Mascara, the brush is very comb like, I love this in a mascara wand. Because I wear false lashes a lot a comb like wand really separates the lashes in case they are clumping. The YSL Shocking Mascara wand is fluffier. Which means it picks up lots of product and applied a lot to the lashes.





When you apply the YSL Shocking Mascara to the lashes it feels quite wet. If you pull out the mascara wand and look at the wand it looks like there is a lot of product left on the brush. For me this really doesn’t bother me because this mascara dries pretty quick even though it does feel wet. The only issue with this is that if I look up or sneeze when it has just been applied I tend to get little dots on my eyelid. The Maybelline Sensational Mascara goes on the lashes really nicely and doesn’t feel overly wet like the YSL does. It just goes on really nice and feels dry almost instantly. Which is obviously good for on the move or if you are in a hurry doing your makeup.

When this mascara is applied straight off the bat, the YSL I have to admit does look more impressive. It gives you more lift and makes the lashes look really volumised instantly. Plus, the YSL sets like glue and holds a curl really nicely. But, I don’t want to bash the Maybelline mascara because it really is a great mascara.



For a high street mascara, the Maybelline Sensational Mascara is a great mascara for the price. For an everyday mascara it is out of this world for the price and I cannot imagine not having it in my makeup collection. As for the YSL Shocking Mascara, when I use this I feel really luxurious and when I pull this out on special occasions it makes me feel nice, which I know sounds bad, but it’s true!

Honestly, these two mascaras work really well for me. If you want to add drama to your lashes and are willing to pay a little extra I would go for the YSL. If you just want a great every day mascara, I would opt for the Maybelline.

As normal here on my blog I will link below to where you can find these items in case you want to find anything else out about them. Also if you have any questions please leave them below and I will get right back to you!

  3. I need to try the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara! I've always been obsessed with the Maybelline Full N' Soft mascara after I read it's Lauren Conrad's fav, but the packaging is a little boring if I'm honest haha. Definitely not as pretty!
