A little while ago I was randomly selected to receive a sample of Mac’s False Lashes Extreme Black mascara, so I thought I would write up a quick review to let you know what I thought. First, let me just say that I LOVE Mac, in particular their lispticks, and am constantly checking their website for the latest products (so much so that their website is saved to my phone’s homescreen) however I’m usually put off of buying some of them due to the hefty price tag that my student budget and low pay job just can’t stretch to. On first impressions though, this seems like a nice product. The wand felt like it was of a really good quality and the consistency of the mascara seemed smooth and clump-free, although there did seem to be an odd smell to it, which was slightly offputting.
NO MAKE UP:
My eyelashes are quite short and fair, so I rely on mascara to make me feel more confident about them.
WITH MAC FALSE LASHES EXTREME MASCARA:
To be entirely honest, I wasnt massively impressed with this mascara. It made my eyelashes look and feel a bit dry and wirey and the brush didn’t live up to my expectations as it didn’t really do a very good job of combing through my lashes and coating them. I’m also not convinced that they really give the ‘false lash’ effect. While I was pleased to receive the sample and happy that I gave it a try, I think there are much better mascaras out there for a lot better value for money.
I hate to say that, considering how much of a fan I am of Mac and their lipsticks (especially the limited edition packaging) but I have to be honest. At the moment I’m using Maybelline’s Big Eyes double-ended mascara, which cost a purse-friendly £5.99 and I honestly feel that it is a much better product in comparison, with much better results.
