Spied at Nordstrom: MAC's Opulash Mascara.

What did my eyes spy when I walked through the Nordstrom beauty department yesterday? The newest mascara from MAC? The one that is said to give DiorShow a run for it's money?

Yes, MAC's newest mascara called Opulash was at the Nordstrom MAC counter, to which it is an exclusive. That is why I was confused, you see. I usually get press information prior to a launch, and I had not heard about this being available yet. 

I was pleasantly surprised and just had to purchase.

Here is the description:

"Big, fat, full, bouffant lashes! Dramatic density and curl achieved with a giant brush! Fibers go in all directions for thick, rich, even application with no clumping. Long-wearing formula—up to 15 hours—quickly thickens lashes root to tip."

In other words, Opulash is a volumizing mascara. It does a great job at both thickening and lengthening my lashes, without any clumping or caking. The brush is much larger than a standard size brush, and it is nicely tapered to insure easy coverage of lashes in the corners of eyes and the lower lashes as well.

This formula contains beeswax, which makes for a really smooth and even application. One coat gives my lashes what I like for everyday, and as it builds from there, so does the wow factor. Two to three coats gives me major lashes, the lashes I most often crave.

Besides adding volume, Opulash is said to add and hold a curl. I honestly do not have a problem with my lashes holding a curl so I did not notice a difference when using. I suppose those with stick straight lashes will notice this more than I would, so if you this you, let me know how it works for you.

For $14.00, this is a fabulous buy. The only shade available is Bad, Bad, Black. I bet if this is as good of a seller as I predict, we will see more colors to come.

As I said, Opulash is an exclusive to Nordstrom right now, so that is where you will have to pick it up before it is readily available at all MAC locations on May 27th.

I am anxious to hear more reviews, so please chime in with your thoughts. I honestly think MAC has a HUGE hit on their hands with Opulash. For those that are not MAC mascara fans, this one will have their minds changed.
