Maybelline Sky High Mascara

It takes a fair amount of restraint for me to resit a new mascara. There are a few high street brands that I expect great things from and I'm always up for trying out new releases when they hit the shelves. 

Maybelline is a brand I trust. Their recent Falsies lash lift mascara  was a big hit so when I heard whispers of a new mascara coming our way, I knew I had to try it. 


In my February favourites I mentioned that I did a mini make-up haul where I picked up a few bits; that was my perfect excuse to try out their latest 
Sky High Mascara It's been widely talked about all over Instagram and Tik Tok so I had (sky) high hopes! 


I feel like I've really given this a good try. I've been using it a few weeks now. I admit, at first I was pleased with the results but it didn't exactly 'wow' me. I always expect good things from Maybelline mascaras so I knew it wasn't going to be bad. Maybe I was expecting more after all the hype.  
However, after going back to other mascaras and then returning to Sky High, that's when I fell in love. Maybe the formula just needed to dry out ever-so-slightly, maybe I needed to get used to applying it, or maybe I just take a little while to really open up to something new (speak to my therapist about that one!).

But.... yea, it's a good!

haven't held back. I've shown this baby applied on my Insta stories and there's even a couple of Reels where I feature it too. Instagram is where it's at if you're after   videos of products being applied. They give a good idea of how it looks day-to-day but I thought I'd share my thoughts properly on here too. I like to keep things relatively old school and I think this allows me to be a little more thorough. Plus taking product photos calms me so I needed an excuse to use them!


The name Sky High tells you this mascara is going to be all about lengthening. I really notice  this on the lower lashes, even applied quickly the formula clings on to even the finest lashes and makes them look super long. They claim this is down the the flex tower brush which bends and gets right in and coats the lashes from root to tip. 


Infused with bamboo extract and fibres it feels nice and light while still giving your lashes the volume and length that really opens the eyes. I've put together a little 'before and after' to give you an idea of how well it performs. Although my lashes are long, (fun fact, when I was younger so many people would comment on my lashes I got self conscious and trimmed them!) the tips of my lashes are really fair so when they are covered they look so much thicker and longer. 


The best part is this is that it stays all day without smudging or flaking, even through a very sick day with a few tears it hadn't really budged much at all. You need a decent make-up remover to take it off but I think that should be the case for all eye makeup so you avoid too much rubbing on the delicate skin. All-in-all, another hit for Maybelline here!

  1. This mascara makes your eyelashes look amazing! The fact that it doesn't smudge or flake is amazing and makes it a great choice, particularly in the summer when your face gets warmer. I need this mascara ASAP
