I've used this mascara since it came out and I've bought it twice now. I have to say, it's not the formula that makes this my favorite mascara but the wand. It's not the first time I've used a completely plastic mascara wand (instead of the regular ones that look like tube cleaners lol) but this is the BEST one I've used. It's thin (not fat like some of the drug store plastic mascara wands - Maybelline comes to mind) that are impossible to maneuver around your eyes.
I already have long lashes - let me just say that first - but this mascara makes them EXTRA long - to the point where they touch my brow bone/nearly my eyebrows when I look up. They look like falsies with just two coats and the formula doesn't clump. It doesn't smudge either unless I accidentally smudge it while applying. It very easily grabs every lash - even the ones in the corners - and allows me to twist them around and around the wand with ease.
A lot of mascara I've tried don't let me really get in there with the wand, they just sort of sit beneath my lashes to deposit mascara but this one lets me get in there to the point where I can spend as long as I want to build up my lashes.
When you open the tube and pull out the wand the perfect amount of mascara is on there - no extra at all!!
Now the cons - I have used this formula with a different mascara wand and it's nothing special. Just a very black, light mascara formula. I took one lippie off because this is a pricey mascara and I'm not some crazy MAC fangirl where I buy everything that MAC comes out with and doesn't think twice about it. The second time I went to buy this I grumbled to myself a bit lol but it truly is worth it the price for what it does to my lashes. (FYI MAC is more expensive here than in the States.)
Another con is that the plastic wand is rigid so if you're not careful or in a rush you MAY poke yourself in the eye. I've done it a few times and I've been wearing mascara for years. It took me a bit of practice to get the hang of this - as well as some accidental scraping at the base of my lashes - OW that really stings! - but now I'm a pro at it.
MAC gave these wands away to use with the testers when this mascara came out and I grabbed a bunch of them and now I just use them with any mascara (even cake mascara) and just wash, sanitize and reuse.

This is my all time favourite mascara, it is great for both length and volume, it's even better than my BeneFit they're real mascara! Brilliant, would buy again and again, lasts ages, also.

I've been using this mascara for a while now and I don't know why I haven't searched for a better mascara! It isn't by any means bad, and if your looking to move from drug store mascara to something a little more high end, this is an excellent stepping stone. The price in't much different from drug store mascaras (about 16$).
I do find that this clumps my lashes together quite a bit though, which is something I always try to avoid! I do put quite a few layers on though. It is also a pretty watery formula- if you blink while putting it on or too soon after application you have to clean your face of all the mascara marks! I do find it lengths a little bit but I already have long lashes so that doesn't help me.
The dark colour however is very nice.
Pros: the colour is rich and dark
lasts most of the day
Cons: watery, smudges easily within the first couple minutes after application
clumps in an effort to be voluminous
creates very hard, crunchy lashes
stings VERY bad if it gets in your eyes
I am an admitted MAC addict but I don't LOVE this mascara (even though I've bought it three times now, I just sort of settled.)

This mascara is great for a more natural look, it separates lashes nicely and doesn't clump at all. Like little spidey legs. ;) I wouldn't use this for going out at night or for a more dramatic look but for every day it's great. Doesn't sting my eyes or anything when I remove either.

Amazing! I have never been a fan of MAC mascara but this stuff really works! It lengthens, thickens and even seems to curl my lashes a bit. It completely opened up my eyes! I'm in love!

I have been using drugstore mascaras pretty much forever and after going to the Mac counter and getting my full makeup done I was recommended to use this mascara. It makes my eyelashes look natural yet makes them appear fuller and thicker. I've only had this mascara for a couple of days, but so far so good!

Feel bad for giving it a low-ish rating, but it isn't working for me..
Started off great, lengthened, separated, lasted etc, but about a week into using it it starting to clump, and my lashes would be stuck together, it still lengthened though, it's just my lashes looked horrible in clumps.
I curl my lashes before mascara, but this mascara brings my curled lashes right back down; curling them post-mascara isn't really an option as this mascara dries quite a lot and becomes crunchy and curling lashes when they're cunchy means lashes death.
This is rather unfortunate, I guess I just have to keep looking for one that will suit my lashes' needs..

I AM VERY PLEASED!!!
I began wearing mascara just four years ago, well into my thirties, and not every day. I purchased some MAC mascara and didn't think anything of it. Then I thought I'd found the holy grail when I found Maybelline Colossal until.....I noticed flakes around my eyes and clumps. I then understood why ladies are so particular.
I purchased MAC Studio Fix in Studio Brown from my CCO and I have not experienced one flake!! The color is great for me because my lashes are already dark and thick. But this brush and formula are interesting because it is wetter than anything I've tried, but it separates so well. I brush my lashes inward and I notice lashes I haven't seen before. They look gorgeous and long.
I have only had it for a month and no dry out yet.
EDIT: It is flaking. I will not repurchase.

I LOVED this mascara. It lasted me so long without becoming dry/flaky/clumpy. It defined and lengthened well, held curl, and the brush is perfect.
Unfortunately, I went back to repurchase and they've discontinued it in black/brown!!! Nooooo!!!!! I thought my search for the perfect mascara was over :(

Get This It's Wonderful
Doesn't wear off until you take it off.

I have been using this mascara for years, and it's the only one I use. I have very long lashes so clumpy mascaras look horrible on me. This mascara is great at separating my lashes and does not clump, even if it's almost out. I have it in both black and brown. The brown I use for everyday makeup and the black for going out. I see that the brown is no longer available on their website. I hope it's not discontinued!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Normal, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
Got this mascara in both black and brown. My favourite MAC mascara so far! Separates and lengthens and can be built up for dramatic look or one coat for a natural look. Highly recommended. Wish they did a waterproof version!

After using pharmacy mascaras since I started using makeup, I thought it was time to upgrade to a higher end mascara - and this was my first choice. I can't even say how please I am with mascara. The wand separates my lashes beautifully and gives a very chic, natural look with one coat but is easily buildable for those glam evening looks. This is the ONLY mascara I've ever used that doesn't dry out and flake leaving horrible black dots and smudges all over my face throughout the day.
I won't be letting this mascara out of my sigh for a long time!

This is the first mac mascara that actually worked for me. Its decent to wear everyday, but i wouldn't buy it again. It doesn't have enough wow to make me think i have to have it.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Blond, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Blue
While this mascara does a nice job of separating my lashes, I don't like the spidery effect it gives me. I feel like a tarantula. And unlike many reviewers here, I had a terrible time with flaking after a few hours' wear.
I bought this mascara because I got fed up with previous mascaras clumping, and while this one doesn't clump I can't say I like anything else about it. In all fairness, at 52 years old, I'm starting to prefer more natural-looking mascaras. I also need to switch to brown because I'm finding as I get older that black is just too hard-looking for my skin tone and this mascara only comes in black.
After reading the reviews for Clinique's Naturally Glossy Mascara, I think I'm going to give that a try. Seems more suited to my needs. So the search for my HG mascara continues...

This product definitely worked for me, I've had it over a year and it's drying up, of course because it's old. It's only 10 dollars where I got it, which is equal to the price of a lot of drugstore brands. The effect is dazzling. It really makes your lashes look longer and almost has a Britney Spears-ish look if you've ever seen her make up. I absolutely swear by this, it has never clumped. :) I also put it on first and then layer it with volumizing mascara...sounds weird but try it, it makes lashes look really sexy.

This is a wonderful mascara! I wear it everyday and it gives me a very natural and beautiful look. I like that it's not very clumpy and you can put just a little on for school, and then at night for parties, you can just add some more for it to become more dramatic. I would buy this mascara again!
Age: 36-43 Skin: Dry, Dark, Warm Hair: Black, Relaxed, Medium Eyes: Brown
I really like this mascara! I don't remeber buying this, but I know that I did because it was in my stash. I don't remeber when I first used this, but I do remeber thinking, Wow! my lashes look great.
I looked at the tube and I thought it was ProLong Lash, but it was Studio Lash. This was about 2 weeks ago and I used it everyday since.
What I like: It lengthens and separates and never clumps. My lashes look great. They look false without looking gaudy. This makes my lashes looke double the length and no matter how many coats, it never clumps. I am thourougly impressed and will continue to purchase.

This is one of the first products I have ever bought from M.A.C. and I have to say I absolutely love it! I have been trying all sorts of different mascaras from drug stores over the years and none of them were even worth the cheap price I paid for them. They were usually too clumpy, smudged easily, and never stayed. However, M.A.C's studio fix lash went on quite clean and really brought out my lashes. Although I did have to use an eyelash brush to clean it up a bit but not much. Then after waitressing all night I looked in the mirror and it was still flawlessly in place. I had perfect lashes with no smudging! I absolutely love this mascara! It is so worth the price and it is the reason I am now hooked on M.A.C.!

My first review, but I have to tell everyone that this is the best mascara I have ever used. I have long, but light lashes, and this makes them look like false lashes. Amazing! I liked it better than DiorShow. It just made my lashes SO INTENSE! I can't remember the cost, but this is my go-to for intense night eyes. I don't use it during the day.
