[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I’ve really been looking forward to posting about the MAC Stack Mascara because they’re one of a growing number pf brands that recognises people have differing brush preferences and would actually very much like a choice of wands. So, it’s the same formula with two brush options.
As a customer, I’d opt for the micro brush every single time but both brushes have a staggered bristle arrangement that work at all angles to reach all the lash hairs.
The formula is a plant based gel with added Vitamin B – it’s a very deep black and nicely silky in the application. While I think we all know that mascara formulations have very similar bases, this does seem to be a rather superior one which is reflected in the price (£26 HERE – I’d opt for the £12 HERE try-me first). I love, love, love the packaging – MAC Stack is a bit like the Ferrari of mascaras. I can’t think of one that looks sleeker or better or more representative of high performance. They’ve got a ‘virtual try-on’ which is very good (a friend and I have been dong the Dries Van Noten lipstick try-ons all morning and it’s brilliant HERE) so you have an idea how it looks at volumising (big brush) or natural (small brush) levels.
Superstack Megabrush and Superstack Micro Brush which both feature petal shaped, staggered and multifaceted bristles that work to hit every angle.
Best of all? On the MAC website, you can even try before you buy with the virtual ‘try it on’ function which allows you to take a selfie with the new mascara on.
Or, if you don’t want to invest in the full-size 12l version, there’s a mini 8l option for £12.50 – perfect for travelling or popping in your handbag when out and about.
