MAC Upward Lash Mascara Review

MAC Upward Lash Mascara Review 3I’ve loved MAC lipsticks, eyeshadows, and even concealer, but I’ve actually never tried a mascara from the brand until the MAC Upward Lash Mascara in Upwardblack*, which launched this August.MAC Upward Lash Mascara Review 2When I first saw the MAC Upward Lash Mascara in store I thought it was a giant lipstick, because the packaging is very similar except for the base being more elongated.

MAC Upward Lash Mascara Review 6 When you unscrew the top of the MAC Upward Lash Mascara, it immediately becomes obvious that this mascara is a bit different. The rubber brush is both narrow and short, with very small bristles. It’s even smaller than my MAKE UP FOR EVER Smoky Stretch, and definitely takes a little practice to get used to handling. The first few times I used it I did get mascara on my lid as well, but I have gotten more comfortable with it over time.

MAC Upward Lash Mascara Review 5 The MAC Upward Lash Mascara formula is pretty wet and also intensely black and pigmented. Combining the very nubby bristles with a wet formula means that this is not a mascara that really separates lashes, so they can clump together a bit. However, it really does lift up my lashes and adds plenty of length as well as some volume which can be build up with more coats. To me, the end result is a bit rockstar lashes.

MAC Upward Lash Mascara Review Although I’m not totally in love with the mascara itself, I have no complaints when it comes how the MAC Upward Lash Mascara lasts. I find mascaras flake on me quite often but that hasn’t been an issue, and my lashes hold their curl until the end of the day.

MAC Upward Lash Mascara Review 4 Although I appreciate that the MAC Upward Lash Mascara has an innovative take on the mascara brush, I honestly prefer something that allows me a better separation of lashes. Still, the MAC Upward Lash Mascara has a long-lasting, intensely black formula that gives a great curl and length to your lashes that might just be what you’re looking for on a night out.

Have you ever tried a MAC mascara before? There are quite a few options, including even more unique brushes, so let me know if you have a favourite!
