Maybelline Lash Sensational – A Rollerlash Dupe?

Screen Shot 2015-08-31 at 7.47.19 PM

When it comes to mascaras Benefit makes some really awesome ones. I love the They’re Real and the Rollerlash mascaras a lot but sometimes it’s always nice to save a few bucks and find a really great drugstore one. I had heard around the internet world that the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara was supposed to be a dupe for the Benefit Rollerlash. I had heard mixed feelings on the Maybelline mascara but I thought for $8 why not give it a try.


So as you can see at first glance there isn’t much of a difference. Each eye has two coats of each mascara on it with no lash primer.  I personally found that in the beginning the Lash Sensational formula was a little wet and a bit hard to work with, but after about a week or so it dried a little and now it’s great! The shape of the brushes are pretty similar. Both are curved with the Rollerlash brush being a little thinner, which I like. Both formulas hold curl very well but I found the Lash Sensational gives my lashes a bit more length, however I feel the Rollerlash gives a little more curl. The wear of these mascaras is both long lasting but I did find the Lash Sensational to smudge under my eye a bit after wearing it for a while. Packaging wise both are pretty standard but I definitely prefer the Rollerlash. It’s rubber handle makes for a good grip and the indented top of the tube is nice because it will lay on it’s own without rolling all over the place (#beautybloggerproblems am I right?).

In conclusion, I do believe the Lash Sensational is a pretty good dupe for the Rollerlash. Sometimes I even prefer it. Don’t get me wrong though, I love the Rollerlash and will definitely be repurchasing it but if you’re not into spending $29 on a mascara I think you’ll find the Lash Sensational will work for you!

Have you tried these mascaras? What are your thoughts? Let me know!




  1. Your eyes are gorgeous! I have not tried any of these mascaras but I agree with you, I like the rollerlash mascara better. Both are nice though.

  2. Great post! I actually wasn’t a massive fan of the Roller Lash. It was nice but I didn’t think it was worth the price! The Lash Senesational might be a good alternative, thanks! xxx

  3. Loved this post! These are actually my two favourite mascaras! I think roller lash is much more defining and lash sensational gives more volume. Xx
