Review: MAC Opulash Mascara


I'm not usually a fan of MAC mascaras. In fact, after last year's so-so Dazzlelash, I had pretty much planned on skipping all future MAC mascaras. So, I'm not really sure how I caved and bought Opulash, MAC's latest and more premium mascara. I am definitely a sucker for packaging, so it could've been the new chrome-looking tube. So what did I think?


Well, first off, this mascara is in a huge, full-size tube- much bigger than any other MAC mascaras, and for good reason: the brush on this thing is massive! I always thought Plush Lash's brush was big, but this one makes Plush Lash look whimpy. It's huge, similar to Dior Show mascara's wand.

That said, it applies really quickly in one foul swoop. I love that it is so easy and quick to apply. It also does give considerable length and volume. Probably not the most that you'll ever get, but it is a very solid mascara. Unfortunately, that seems to be the trend with MAC mascaras: It's solid, but not mind-blowingly awesome.

I didn't take any pictures of it applied because I didn't really think those pics are super effective, or really show how it looks in real life.

My sister also picked this up, and I asked her what she thought. She says she doesn't like it as much as Plush Lash (which is her go-to mascara), mostly because of the brush- which tends to be one of the biggest parts of mascara. :D

Anyways, have you tried Opulash? What do you think?

Thanks for your lovely comment!
I use revlon colorstay in 110 ivory.
I've got the one for combination/oily skin and the one for normal/dry skin, the one for combination/oily skin is definately warmer (odd i know!)
