This is the best mascara I've ever used and I've tried tons and tons of mascara. I have spent years trying to find a mascara that wouldn't smudge or give me racoon eyes. I have pretty oily eyelids and mascara does not stay put on me -- not even waterproof formulas of very highly-rated brands. I've spent as much as $60 on a mascara before, and while that was a good mascara, Maybelline's Lash Sensational still wears longer without flaking or smudging. To be clear, I'm not even using the waterproof formula of this mascara -- just the regular formula, and it withstands hot summer days, dancing all night, and even sex.
It wears just fine without a primer, but I use Urban Decay's Subversion primer to really lengthen my lashes before applying Lash Sensational. The result is very long, cat-eye, fully fanned out lashes. This look is great for a cat eye, winged eye, or just a natural look with very prominent lashes. I won't go as far to say they look fake -- they don't -- but they make your natural lashes look long and bold. For a mascara that is under $10, this product is a steal when you compare it to high dollar mascaras that just aren't as good.
