As someone who grew up using the brand’s iconic Great Lash Mascara, I was very excited to try the new Maybelline Sky High mascara. This mascara has literally broke the internet. The affordable mascara went viral on TikTok and at the time of writing, videos using the Maybelline Sky High Mascara hashtag have totalled more than 639 million.
People have been raving about the Sky High Mascara’s incredible lengthening and thickening effect.
The info: Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara Cosmic Black is a lengthening and volumizing limitless length mascara. Now in a Cosmic Black shade with intense black pigments for that darker mascara and more dramatic eye makeup look. Washable mascara formula infused with bamboo extract and fibers for long, full and lightweight lashes, that don’t flake or smudge. Available in Very Black and Blackest Black. Now available in Cosmic Black, with intense black impact. Allergy tested. Ophthalmologist tested. Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. Removes easily.
The packaging: The packaging is a classic cylindrical design in a black shade, the embossed font on the product is a clear nod to the New York City skyline that inspired the mascara itself.
Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara Cosmic Black has an exclusive Flex Tower mascara brush which bends to volumize and extend every single lash from root to tip. I love the length and the size of the narrow tapered spikey brush which makes it easy to get right into the root of the lashes creating ultimate length and lift. The fact that it is flexible makes it easy to get into the inner corners and catch the shorter lashes. Every lash is separated and coated. The long length of the brush makes it easy to do the whole lash line at once.
Just like the name states it makes your lashes sky high delivering “limitless length” and “full volume.” With the secret lying within the Flex Tower brush which reaches each individual lash and increasing volume. Maybelline Sky High Mascara is infused with bamboo extracts to help nourish your natural lashes, similar to those found in eyelash serums.
I could definitely see it visibly lifted, lengthened and volumized my lashes even on the first coat. The cosmic black is really black as I noticed it really darkened my black lashes. It really holds my stick straight lashes up really well. I also didn’t notice any clumping and my lashes separated well.
It is also really buildable the more you apply the more volume and length you get but still does not get heavy or clump.
The formula is a bit wet so I would recommend letting it dry before blinking or applying extra coats. In terms of wear this lasted all day. Even by the end of the day I didn’t notice any flaking or smudging, it stayed put even though it is not a water proof mascara.
It also comes off really easily with a bit of eye makeup remover
The verdict: Highly recommend if you are on the lookout for a mascara that won’t break the bank but still delivers amazing quality.
RRP: €13.99 at Boots and other pharmacies nationwide
