While I’m not personally on TikTok, some of my Hip sidekicks are, so I always hear the latest & hottest trends – and this mascara is one beauty product everyone is talking about!

In fact, it often sells out super fast, so if you’re lucky enough to find it in stock you’re going to want to get your hands on one or two NOW.

My “secret” is the Maybelline Sky High Mascara! 😍

You can possible score up to 40% OFF this mascara right now with Amazon Subscribe & Save!

You read that right! While my Amazon account was lucky enough to have this 40% Subscribe & Save offer available, other team members mentioned having a 25% off discount instead. Unfortunately, some members also noted they didn’t have a discount at all. My fingers are crossed for ya! 🤞

Here’s what my Hip sidekick Angela said about this mascara that made me realize I needed to try it out. Between her testimony and the amazing prize, I was already sold!

“I saw this mascara all over Tik Tok a month or so ago and I just had to try it after all of the rave reviews. I am in awe of how much I love it! I really like the wand, and just a couple of coats makes my lashes look amazing!”

I’ve gotta say, any viral trend I’ve ever heard about on TikTok, whether it be an amazing pasta dish or a new makeup trend such as this mascara, results 10 times out of 10 as basically the most amazing thing ever. 🙌 And often leaves me asking myself…“Why haven’t I tried that yet?” or “Why didn’t I think of that?!”.

Well, let me save you from the wondering and just say…

This mascara really does live up to all the hype! 👏

It’s funny because any time I’ve seen a mascara wand with short bristles, I’ve always automatically assumed wouldn’t work well…that not nearly enough mascara would be on the wand to give my lashes the coverage I was looking for.

Except, that’s exactly the opposite!

I find the Maybelline Sky High Mascara to give AMAZING coverage and the smaller bristles keep the mascara from clumping and allow for easy buildability which any makeup wearer knows both qualities are key to a great mascara! 💯

It’s also infused with bamboo extract and fibers for long, full lashes that never get weighed down. After wearing this stuff all day, I still notice my lashes have the same volume & lift as when I walked out the door in the morning! 🤩

I don’t know about you, but I also have always struggled with flaking and mascara fibers getting in my eyes throughout the day. Well, say goodbye to those makeup troubles, because I’ve experienced zero of that with this mascara! 🙌

Here are some of the other benefits I’ve noticed:

  • The price is great. At under $10, ya just can’t beat it and it performs like all the other high-end mascaras.
  • It washes off so easily! It’s almost mind-blowing how easily this mascara comes off – it’s like a soft crumble, rather than a messy black smudge all over your face.
  • It wasn’t a mess in the pool. I recently took the kids on a little trip away and while in the pool, I noticed the mascara (even though mine isn’t waterproof) didn’t smear all over my face. In fact, when I got out, my lashes still looked fluffy and had good shape even after getting wet!
  • No flaking & fibers in your eyes. Okay, okay, I know I already talked about this, but I’ve never used a mascara that didn’t have those two traits in one way or the other, so it’s worth mentioning again that this formula is exceptional!
  • It’s allergy & Ophthalmologist tested. I’m someone who has sensitive skin and eyes so I really appreciate that I don’t have to worry when wearing this makeup. It’s suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

*I am wearing the color: “800 WASHABLE BLACKEST BLACK” in all photos and my earrings are an old purchase from Free People (unfortunately, no longer on their website). 


Check out what some of my other Hip sidekicks said about the Maybelline Sky High Mascara:

“I LOVE it! It isn’t flaky and it picks up and lifts all of my lashes to really open up the look of my eyes. I do 2-3 coats to grab a full effect. I was impressed with how well this mascara works as well as the affordable price point!” – Amber


“My daughter and I love this mascara and tried it after seeing it all over social media. It’s actually really hard to find, but I bought 2 on Amazon and got them super fast! My daughter thinks they are the best mascara in the world! And actually better than the Better Than Sex mascara and not to mention WAY cheaper!” – Michelle

And because I know people may wonder… Nope, this post is not sponsored in any way! We’re just huge fans of this affordable find and couldn’t wait to share it with you all!  ❤️

    Nice!

  2. Becca

    This post was perfect timing! I was needing to try a new mascara and I just ordered this one to give it a shot! Can’t wait to try it! Thanks!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re so welcome, Becca! Hope you love it too!

    • Sara

      Awesome, Becca! Let me know how you like it!

      • Becca

        Have you tried the waterproof yet? Was just wondering if it’s just as good.

        • tpop

          Just looked at the Maybelline website and the waterproof has terrible reviews.

          • lilyeli

            I have waterproof and it’s awful. I haven’t tried the regular one. But I tried waterproof since this is all that was in stock. And I agree with the horrible review. I have to try the regular one but can’t seem to find it anywhere.

        • Sara

          No, I haven’t Becca! I tend to stay clear of those, but that’s just my personal preference. 🙂

        • knight_allyson

          The waterproof has been my daily mascara, and I have lots of options! I usually don’t wear waterproof but I’m glad I tried it.

        • loretta

          It’s awful. I used it once and threw it in the trash 👎👎

  3. JoAnn

    I love this mascara but my daughter wasn’t a fan. It is always out of stock at Walmart, target, everywhere so Amazon might be the best bet lol!

    • Sara

      Yes! Amazon is the only place I have found it recently too. Glad to hear you love it!

  4. AngieM

    Amber, are you wearing fake lashes or is that the outcome of the mascara?

    • Sara

      Hey, AngieM! I actually wrote this post and no, I’m not wearing any fake lashes at all and didn’t even curl them! This is the outcome of the mascara, isn’t it amazing?!

      • AngieM

        Awesome! Thank you for the reply 🙂

        • Sara

          You’re so welcome! Have a great day. 🙂

  5. uma

    like mabelline’s previous “cult” hit, was it “great lash” ? it lasts about 3 weeks and then it’s no longer efective. mabelline had an add campaigne stating real makeup artists used it.sure we used it when they gave it to us for free! but it dried out quickly. i’d rather use something i can keep for a couple months.happy shopping.

    • bargin

      I have been using this product for a few months and it did dry out in just a few weeks. When you first open it it is amazing but it is short lived.

    • Pammyjo

      When a mascara seems to be drying out prematurely, I apply a few drops of eye drops (like Visine or any brand) into the barrel and shake it up a bit. I would imagine the sterile eye drops are safer than using regular water. This method usually makes the mascara fairly usable until I can get a new one.

  6. Sally

    What stencil do you use for your brows? They’re perfectly boxed😍

    • Sara

      Hey Sally! I actually didn’t even know an eyebrow stencil was a thing. LOL! But I talked about what I use on my eyebrows HERE!

  7. cathy

    walgreens has Maybeline bogo 50 percent this week. I bought one and used my 20 off 10.00 purchase to bet 2.00 off. Used it this morning and love it so far.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Great score, Cathy!

  8. Natalie

    I couldn’t wait to try this mascara and was terribly disappointed. The wand is not strong and bends very easily. Plus, it clumps so bad. Even the commercial shows small clumps.

    Yes, it covers thick, but it looks terrible, in my opinion.

    • Sara

      So sorry you had a bad experience, Natalie! The first time I used it the wand seemed too flimsy and it took getting used to but I honestly love it now! Hopefully if you ever give it another shot, you’ll love it. 🙂

  9. Jill

    I bought one for me & my daughter a few days ago after seeing your review & we love it. It is amazing! It doesn’t leave any black under my eyes even after wearing it all day & into the evening. It looks like I’m wearing false eyelashes but it’s just this mascara. I highly recommend it!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! Thank you so much for coming back to tell us what you think.
