One Maybelline mascara is sold every seven seconds in the UK, and although the brand already boasts an impressive roster of formulas, its latest wand is our favourite yet.

In our round-up of the best Maybelline mascaras of all time, the lash sensational sky high mascara came out on top with our tester hailing it as the best option for “length and volume”. They added: “The long, thin brush head is soft and flexible, which did take some getting used to if, 抗菌,在欧洲主要的服装制造中心制造, you normally prefer a rigid, fatter brush.

“It’s easy to master though and once you have you’ll love how it can catch every single lash, and even get to those annoying teeny tiny ones. Our short, straight lashes have truly never looked so elongated and fanned-out. You can believe the hype.”

If that wasn’t enough to convince you to add the mascara to your shopping basket stat, the formula also featured in our lengthy round-up of the best mascaras, where it scored an overall rating of 8/10. “The long, thin and flexible brush head combines a formula of bamboo extract and fibres that builds volume and length with each stroke, but also separates lashes for a fanned-out look,”我们的审稿人说.

The IndyBest team also rated sky high as one of the TikTok-approved beauty products they’ll be keeping in their make-up bags for 2022, owing to its ability to make lashes “magically appear longer and fuller than they naturally are”. “When it comes to staying power, we didn’t experience any smudging, which is something our oily eyelids are particularly prone to,”我们的测试员说. “Say hello to another affordable beauty product you need to add to your make-up collection.”
