Why oh why did I bother. This is the most disappointing and overly hyped mascara that I have ever tried. I have to give them points for their marketing strategy. It worked. That and all the hype out there led me to MAC's website to buy this sight unseen (we live out in the country and have no large malls close by). This mascara was just awful for me. There are a dozen drugstore mascara's that do more than this one. Not only that, but I have never tried a mascara in my life that left my lashes this brittle! Once you apply this mascara, you cannot work your lashes or apply other coats without great difficulty (and you better move lightning fast)! I couldn't even use my trusty lash comb as it wouldn't budge or move through these lashes period! If I had tried any harder, I would have pulled out lashes with this (so be careful)! Usually when I am having a very light eye shadow day, that's when my mascara really pops the most because it's more visible. When I wear Diorshow or YSL Faux De Cil on a light eye shadow day, people always have to stop and ask me what mascara I'm wearing. Not with this one! No matter how I tried to work the lush looking brush, it gave me no wow factor whatsoever (and I know how to work a mascara wand). I got nothing but short, black sticks that looked like micro-tiny, thorns. At least it was easy to remove, so I will give it points for that! It's also so cheap that it's not worth returning because I would pay half the price of the mascara in shipping alone. Ugh. Live and learn. This should be renamed Opuhype.
After seeing a Youtube Guru rave about this product, I decided to give it a try. The mascara gives me long, separated lashes with a little bit of volume with one coat. I think the more you build it, the more drama you could create.
One really nice thing is this product didn't clump or give me spider lashes. I did get compliments on it the first day I used it. For now, this is my go-to mascara, but typical of me, I'm sure I will keep trying other ones just to see if something is better. :)
Don't believe the hype! I'm convinced that MAC is secretly re-packaging their mascaras with flashy names and flashy promises. This one is no different that Zoom Lash. It doesn't make your lashes any bigger or better. I found the brush to be quit difficult to work with, which is a big turn off for me. The end results are good, but they are no different than what you could already achieve through about 15 other mascaras already on the market. Thanks, but no thanks!
I like the big brush, but honestly I see no difference between this mascara and the Mascara X I was using before it. I agree with the reviewer below that it works best with Prep+Prime Lash, but in my opinion everything works better with MAC's lash primer - so still no big difference there. Nothing wrong with it, just doesn't do what the adverts promised and there isn't anything unique about it prompting me to buy it again. However I will use this one all up as it's fine as a day-to-day mascara.
I don't think *any* mascara can really give me the false-eyelashes look (the ones you see in adverts), while also lengthening, volumizing, AND also being smudge, smear, or flake-proof--it's just not going to happen. This comes pretty close to what I want in an everyday, affordable mascara though--my eyelashes do look longer and thicker and this mascara didn't budge all day, even with massive amounts of humidity and grossness. My big thing lately is checking out how easily the mascara can be removed, which, in this case, is pretty easily--I hate losing my eyelashes while removing mascara. I'd definitely re-purchase, but I'm already a MAC fan, so I'm sure I'm biased!
I LOVE this mascara!! I get compliments on it every time I wear this. Someone even asked me if I was wearing false eyelashes! This gives me a very full and lengthy look, but can be as subtle or dramatic as you want. Price is very comparable to some drugstore brands, which is great :) I will definately be repurchasing!
I was seriously hoping this would be more dramatic, like the SA promised. However, I can get it to build to a descent volume. I was hoping for something more UD Big Fatty-ish with this mascara. It was not it.
This is a mild volumizing mascara with a little lengthening packed into it at best. I will wear this on days I don't really feel like doing my lashes up. It does make the lashes beefier than dazzle lash. However, I still remain unimpressed by MAC's mascaras. I should have used my better judgement and passed. However at least it can still be B2M'd.
I do have to give it credit where this wimpy mascara deserves. It did not transfer, smudge or flake. The mascara is very black and has good pigment.
If you like big brushes this has a big brush, like UD Big Fatty. If big brushes aren't your thing, you won't like it.
Very disappointed with this product. The MA told me this was a more dramatic alternative to Plush Lash ( which I am a big fan of) but it was nothing like it. The formula left my lashes really dry. It lengthened my lashes but gave no volume, so my lashes looked like thin dry sticks.
I would not buy this again.
I love this stuff, but if you are wanting a mascara that is going to be dramatic, this is not for you. To me, this is like Great Lash on steroids. It makes my lashes look perfectly natural. Also, I love the way my lashes feel in this mascara. Kind of soft but with substance. I naturally have really long lashes, so this is perfect for me. So all in all, if you have long lashes already, and you want something to amp them up for everyday, Opulash is perfect for you.
I do like this mascara and for a price only (approx.) $7.00 above the average drugstore mascara I would repurchase. I really like the brush it gets all my little lashes, However the product applies much better if you use M.A.C Prep+Prime Lash first.
