I've tried a lot of different mascaras, Lancome, YSL, Dior- you name it; but this mascara from MAC is the only one that has really met my expectations.
The mascara has a rubber wand with a lot of tiny bristles, so when I applied it for the first time I was expecting length and separation,but the actual result was just terrible, all my lashes clumped together into one big black lump. For me it didn't seem like there was to much product on the wand, but when I started swiping it off along the edges around the opening of the mascara-tube I realised that the problem was that I was just getting to much product on all at once; so by using this technique I finally get those long and separated lashes that I wanted, (and I save a lot of product since I carefully push back the excess into the tube with the wand).
This is a very nice mascara, however, with that being said, there are several other drug store mascaras that are compatible for 1/3rd of the price. I will not be re-purchasing this mascara only for that reason. If you're a MAC only girl, definitely try this mascara. You will not be disappointed.
This is the best mascara I have worn in a long time. No flaking or Smudging! It wears great on my false lashes too!! An I don't mind the price if it works well!!
I always get myself in trouble when I ask sales people what their favorite products are or their opinions--mainly because I feel guilty telling them no or that looks awful. Same thing happened with this mascara. As soon as she took the wand out, I wanted to express disgust with the applicator(I like the big fluffy mascara wands). But, I said, "ok, I'll try it" I hate it soo much--makes my lashes stick straight and I only get coverage/definition at the base. I used 4 coats, and still nothing. Never been so disappointed on a MAC product.
This is my new favorite mascara. It's a lightweight, whipped, mouse-like formula and it's really build-able. I am obsessed with it and I haven't seen my lashes look this good in a long time. I think it's a great, cheaper alternative to the more volumizing Lancome mascaras. It's my new favorite. I recommend it to people who already have longer lashes, but want more volume, definition, and curl.
I love this mascara!!!
Gives me full, thick and long lashes. Great part about it is that when I want to curl them, they actually hold!! LOVE IT!!! I GIVE IT A 10!!!!
I was told by the MAC sales person that this was the latest mascara they carried and stayed on long and didnt clump up. I admit it does stay on long but after a month it started to clump up in the tube. It began to leave lumps on my lashes and wasnt as smooth anymore. Pretty pricey too.
So far, I'm really liking this mascara - I've been using it for about a week, and I like that it does not smudge on me, most mascaras do. Usually I will put on a regular mascara I like and then coat with fibre wig mascaras, because they don't smudge on me either.
But with this one, I just use my MAC lash primer, then this, and go - great length and volume, and it stays put!
This mascara certainly does lengthen and add volume to a very significant degree, and doesn't smudge at all, even after 18+ hours of wear in extreme humidity. Despite this (or perhaps because of this?), the results I get are pretty unattractive for two or three reasons: my lashes clump together quite badly, and no amount of combing manages to remedy this; it makes your lashes look very hard and stiff - total spider legs, and unnatural in a bad rather than in a good way; and finally I struggle to get it to apply evenly - I end up with blobby deposits congregating which again don't seem to want to comb through. The clumpy, hard, spidery look is the worst.
I REALLY like this mascara! It gives me long and thick lashes and they retain softness and flexibility. I love the look.
Does smudge a bit easy.
This will be my go to mascara for the foreseeable future!
