M·A·C Opulash Optimum Black.

Who wants the most bold, black and eyelashes exceeding length and volume normally achieved with mascara? I do! I CANNOT apply false lashes for the life of me.  I have tried all types to no avail.  Thus, I stick with mascara.  I have a mascara for everyday, one for a smoky eye, colored mascara for special eye looks and then sometimes I need one for the super duper over the top lash look I love (which is more often than not). The latest mascara in my line up on my vanity is this new one from M·A·C. Meet M·A·C Opulash Optimum Black.


Something bolder, better, blacker, badder! The race is on to build the best Dramatic Volume and Curl ever. M·A·C Mascara is on the up, trending big, growing gargantuan – so here it is! M·A·C Opulash Optimum Black is your new way forward for a more impressive, imperious build, a more saturated black, with the vroom of extra-volumization, delivered dramatically with our most bodacious brush yet – it’s bigger than beyond! And Intense! Hence the extreme expansion and curl, formed from a blend of silica plates of mica and natural kaolin to thicken and grab each lash with every application, for an intense lay-down with succinctly sexy separation.

Resists flaking, smudging, and humidity, with multifunctional emollient ester flexibility, superior adhesion, and water-gel instant conditioning for even the most sensitive of eyes.  And it lasts 15 hours! The spotlight is on superlative style, state-of-the-art science, and the urge to merge the two....Opulash Optimum Black is the Bat-For-Lashes bomb!

The brush is huge! It takes a few tries to get used to such a large brush, but having tried so many before, it was not that difficult. Just be careful navigating around the corners of your eyes as to be sure not to poke them.  The formula is thick and lush and spreads evenly with just one coat. Two coats and wow - lashes are thick, with no clumps, of course.  I experienced all day wear with Opulash, with no smudging or flaking at all.

I love that one thing this mascara  (wonder if it's in the soon to be released MAC Holiday 2011 collection?) does is resists humidity! Those of us who spend any time in New England or summer in Florida (crazy, I know!) with the high levels of humidity, thank you for that quality alone.
