Extreme Black Mascara Review

Before we start, is it MAC, mac or Mac?!

I have so many mascaras, eye shadows, lipsticks and well, every piece of makeup you could imagine.

However, a new product is introduced every week and with Mac, this seems to be even more frequent.

Now, I'm not complaining, but in between Viva Glam, the Cinderella story and let's face it many, many more collections, my bank balance ain't looking so great.

Freebies. 
Freebies, If like. 
- Try before you buy.
- Make me love your brand more.
- Yes, ok I'll buy the full size product.

Anyway, after buying some foundation online, I received a mini, tiny sample of their new False Lash Extreme Black Mascara - thanks!

So, what do I think?

Well, I've recently been on a trip to London and thought that would be the perfect opportunity and ultimate test for the gloopy black substance.
 
Verdict: 

Well, I had my concerns.
Does it make my lashes longer? Yes, but not to falsies standard. They look doll like, not bad, just not as impressive as I had hoped.

What is impressive though - the staying power.

OH MY. 

Now, if you are like me, make up is a chore.
No, keeping makeup looking flawless is a chore.
Melty eyeliners and smudges are not a good look, but I can guarantee that my makeup will slide during the day.
Actually, on that note, if anyone knows of a good primer/setting spray that will stop my makeup slipping and sliding PLEASE let me know!

Anyway, the point I'm getting at is that the mascara stayed put - ALL DAY!

As for my naked palette eyeshadow, crave and faint, well that's a different story. 

So, will I be rushing out to buy MAC's mascara?
Honestly,  probably not. Next time I need a mascara I think I am going to jump on the band wagon and try Benefit's Roller Lash, but all in all - Good Job Mac! Let's face it, they know what they're doing.

Final Score: 7/10
