I’ve yet to get an official date for MAC Instacurl Lash – the latest mascara offering from MAC with a brush that bends. I love the formula and the brush on the previous mascara, MAC Pro Lash Twisted Mascara (HERE) which was MAC’s inital foray into ‘bendy’ bits with a bending wand (I don’t use the twist aspect but still love the actual mascara) but now they’ve upped the ante with an actual bending brush.
So, things begin like this…
….and end like this. I know… no sniggering at the back (I’ve code named it banana mascara). There are enough mascaras with a curved brush on the market that if you want a curve it’s easy to get. There’s something quite weird about the mechanics of it – twist a certain section of the casing and the brush goes from straight to bendy and vice versa. I think you’d need to be obsessive about your mascara application to require this degree of flexibility from one brush. Bendy wand, I kind of get, bendy brush, not so much.
Plus, I think it’s aggressive looking! What do you think? Bendy or not bendy when it comes to mascara brushes?
