Screen Shot 2015-04-30 at 14.27.15Those of you reading the blog for a while now will know that I am a rather big fan of Mac and even that is putting my love for Mac lightly. However, as much as I love all things Mac, I have always avoided their mascaras for no reason at all, apart from the fact I really heard anything about them. Mac are famous for many outstanding products, but it seems their mascaras don’t take their place in the same limelight.

Over the past few weeks I have been trailing a number of mascaras from Mac and the Mac Extended Play Gigablack lash mascara has been an absolute standout for me. If you’re looking for a mascara that give length and natural volume,while at the same time giving them lift and definition,  then you’re gonna love this offering from Mac.

I have now found a mascara that gives me everything I wanted and more and I didn’t even realises I wanted these things from a mascara!

It gives your lashes length and definition and while it does at give some volume, it is very natural looking volume. If you’re looking for massive va va boom volume, you’re not going to get that from this mascara.

Overall, I can honestly say that I absolutely love the Mac Extended Play Gigablack lash mascara. This is 100%  a mascara that I use to the very end and will more than likely repurchase.

You can purchase Mac Extended play Gigablack lash mascara on any Mac counter for €18.50 or online here.

    It’s fab but unfortunately it flakes everywhere on me because of my long eyelashes so I end up looking like Kung Fu panda after a few hours. .

    Hi Sinead, I’m looking for a recommendation for a mascara one that is jet black. I love the really dark glossy look. Do you think this Mac one would be good ?
