This is probably one of the most famous, if not the most famous, mascara at the moment: the Maybelline Sky High Mascara. This mascara went viral on TikTok because so many people tried & loved it. This got quickly picked up by the beauty community and everyone was talking about how amazing this mascara is. I had to wait for a while before it was finally available here in the Netherlands but the moment I was able to purchase it, I went for it. Let’s see if this mascara is really that good!
Maybelline Sky High Mascara
The mascara has a cute, pink packaging with the name in shiny letters. It actually reminds me a bit of the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. Anyway, the Maybelline Sky High mascara contains 7,2 ml/0.2 fl oz and retails for $11,49. The mascara is available in the shade ‘Very Black’ and ‘Brownish Black’ in a normal version and a waterproof version. I got the shade ‘Very Black’ in the normal version.
The Maybelline Sky High mascara is a lengthening and volume mascara for sky-high lash impact from every angle. A long-lasting mascara delivers full volume and limitless length. The Exclusive Flex Tower mascara brush bends to volumize and extend every single lash from root to tip. The waterproof mascara formula is infused with bamboo extract and fibers for long, full & lightweight lashes that don’t flake or smudge. Allergy tested. Ophthalmologist tested. Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers. (Source: Maybelline).
I applied the mascara to one eye to show the difference and didn’t apply it to the other eye yet. I only used a little bit of eyeshadow to do create a soft liner. The left eye has mascara on it, the other has nothing on it.
Both eyes with the Maybelline Sky High mascara. Not the most charming pictures but since I have small lids I didn’t want to smile and maybe ruin the results lol. This was the product I was testing while I also tested the Elf Putty Blushes and was hinting in that blog post.
I noticed immediately that the mascara transferred to the lid while applying so I got a lot of mascara on my actual lid, so much it almost created an eyeliner line if this makes sense. If you look closely at the pictures, you can tell that my soft liner looks more black after applying the mascara. I personally do not like this. Since I have hooded eyes and pretty small lids, I often have mascara transfer to the lid, but this was not just a little bit.
The effect of the mascara is clearly visible and I like how it makes my lashes look. They’re definitely lifted, lengthened, and have more volume. I also really like the size of the brush because it’s easy to apply the mascara to the lashes as well as the bottom lashes. The brush being flexible also gives me the ability to get to the smallest or hardest to reach hairs.
The Maybelline Sky High mascara is making my lashes look black and you don’t need many coats to get the results. It doesn’t make my lashes stick together and give that spidery look, thankfully.
I feel like the mascara isn’t really holding my lashes up all day though. To avoid this, I like to apply the Marc Jacobs Beauty At Lash’D mascara on top. I feel like this combination works good and it keeps my lashes in place. The mascara doesn’t smudge throughout the day.
Overall, I like this Maybelline Sky High mascara but not as much as some people on TikTok and other platforms did. The effect of the mascara is good and does what promised. The only thing I’m not so happy about is the transferring because this mascara is ruining a makeup look without eyeliner and I can’t fix it with a spoolie or a cotton tip. It’s not really notable when I’m wearing eyeliner so I would wear this mascara if I know that I’m wearing eyeliner too, otherwise I prefer to skip it.
To be 100% honest, even though I don’t hate this mascara I’m not sure if I’m going to repurchase it. However, this mascara might work perfectly fine if you normally never have mascara transferring to your lid. It’s a common thing for me, but I’ve never had this happening so badly before. If you never have this problem then it’s definitely worth trying this mascara. I personally think I’m skipping it!
