MAC Upward Lash Mascara

In a move away from super-fat lashes, MAC Upward Lash Mascara is all about the spikes and lift. It’s got a teeny brush at the end of the wand which I find far more manageable than the trend for huge brushes that you could practically clean your loo with. My eyes aren’t that big! So, what MAC Upward Lash Mascara does is make application simple and adds lift and hold.

And I can promise it works. I’m in heaven with this mascara (but bear in mind I’ve only just stopped having lash extensions so I am like the proverbial child in a sweet shop with mascaras right now). I’d recommend this actually for older women too – as you start to lose your lids a bit, the last thing you need is very fulsome, fattening mascara that somehow exacerbates the lid loss. It’s better (in my experience), to have well defined, longer looking lashes that open up the eye than it is to have closed looking clumps.

A little tip is to hold the brush to the underside of the lashes and literally push up (the first time I tried this, I did do the blink of shame and covered my under eye skin with mascara.. but practice makes perfect and all that…!). You only need to do this once, and then coat as normal.

MAC Upward Lash Mascara launches in August (at all counters) and is £19. Please, please could they make one in a Clinique Black Honey-ish colour (am wearing this almost daily). Please, MAC :-)). I also think it’s very cute that they’ve housed it in an extended version of the MAC lipstick casing.
