MAC Extreme Dimension Lash Mascara

Since discovering my all time favourite mascara Maybelline's The Falsies I can rarely be persuaded to part with money to try out a new one.

At Christmas Paul's lovely parents gifted me one of the MAC Christmas collections (lucky girl), I can't remember the exact name of the set but it included a paint pot, a gel liner, a mascara, a make-up bag and a double ended brush. They are all gorgeous products and dare I say it...I think I could love this mascara just as much as my amazing Falsies! That is a bold statement let me tell you!

It is the MAC Extreme Dimension Lash and I have been using it for just over a week now, I normally don't like a mascara for the first day or two, I think they are a little too watery when first opened but I didn't have that problem with this one. MAC claims on their website that this mascara will add volume, extend length and create curl...I agree with two out of three of these. It definitely gives you length, I find two coats looks better than one. It also gives you lots of volume, again I prefer two coats, this gives you very full thick black lashes and because it doesn't clump they are beautiful and defined. I don't however agree with the curl claim, I don't ever curl my eyelashes -I just never remember too, and I can't see any difference between the curl this gives and the curl I get from and other mascaras.

Two things I adore about this mascara are first, that it isn't a fibre mascara. While these can be great for building length and adding volume they can end up looking really messy if you don't take care when applying. I love that I can get just as much length with this one but my lashes stay neat and defined. Secondly I can wear this on my bottom lashes all day and it doesn't flake or rub off under my eyes. This is a huge plus for me as I really don't want to have to mess about with two separate mascaras when I am in a hurry.

So I may have been swayed by this lovely product -thank you Paul's Mum and Dad!

I am still fairly new too MAC, I haven't tried very many products from the brand but I am definitely becoming a huge fan! Have you tried this mascara? Or another from MAC that you love?


  1. Ooh nice mascara! I like the brush shape :D I'm a noob when it comes to MAC lol.

    1. I am too, I only have a couple of things from them. Would like to try more though! :)
