Mascara ads fall into the grossly exaggerated claims like no other beauty products. Do you really expect me to believe the model with the mile long, perfectly curled, DRAMATICALLY thick eyelashes is ONLY wearing mascara?? How do the manufacturers get away with that?!? Consequently it becomes difficult to pick up a new mascara not really knowing what the end results will be. They all sound like miracle in a tube don’t they?
Mac False lashes is the newest addition to MAC permanent line of mascara. It come it one shade only: False Black and cost $18. For those of you who know me, I’m a lash girl and will try just about anything. So here ya go.
From MAC: “False Lashes Mascara adds dramatic volume, the rich, creamy, volumizing formula magnifies and multiplies the look of each lash, creating dramatically thick, long, curled, exaggerated lashes. The lush brush applies a deluxe dose of heavy pigment to the lashes and works in combination with the product to create incredible volume, length and density. The pigments in the formula are treated to allow for maximum colour payoff that remains true, deep, uniform and wears all day long. It’s flake- and smudge-resistant, ophthamologist-tested and safe for contact-wearers.”
I tend to like smaller mascara wand and this one, in my opinion, is just the perfect size. With shorter and firm bristles I can get to the lash line easily. The brush gabs the lashes nicely enabling me to them coat them all evenly. I really like it.
With False Lashes
False Lashes excelled in delivering great length with a sweet lift to my lashes. The photo were taken without prior curling. My lashes didn’t clump despite the many layers applied in hope of achieving THE volume. The formula doesn’t dry instantly and allows for rearranging easily and I didn’t end up in spider land either.
The formula is very light and this is where I thought it failed. In no way form or shape did the mascara give me: dramatic volume, nor did it magnifies and multiplies the look of each lash dramatically thick, long, curled, exaggerated lashes. NO WAY!
This mascara may suit someone looking for length and a little lift. If you’re looking for volume as well I just don’t see it. There are better, less expensive alternative, Voluminous by L’oreal comse immediately to mind.
