Review Overview

This mascara has exceptionally clever packaging that allows the single brush to produce completely different results. It works because the mascara container has two different wipers. Inside any mascara tube, the wiper is what cleans the brush and controls how much mascara is deposited when you remove the wand prior to application. With Haute & Naughty Lash, you can remove the wand in one of two ways, depending on which part of the cap you unwind.

The pink-topped portion allows a medium amount of mascara to be deposited onto the brush, which allows for clump-free length and lash separation with just a few strokes. Your lashes will be dramatically longer and you’ll see subtle thickness. Using the sparkling purple top deposits a more generous amount of mascara onto the wand, which increases the intensity. From the first stroke, lashes are substantially thickened and defined.

All in all, this is a versatile (and, quite frankly, ingenious) 2-in-1 mascara that really does give you two different, equally distinctive looks. It costs a bit more than M.A.C.’s other mascaras, but if you can see yourself using both wipers for the different results each provides, it is a worthy splurge.

M.A.C. Cosmetics At-A-Glance

What more can one say for this long-standing makeup line whose products have spoken eloquently for themselves for years? In many ways, M.A.C. Cosmetics is a pivotal line not only for makeup artists but also for any in-the-know cosmetics consumer. Although M.A.C. has several singularly outstanding products, they generally excel by virtue of the range of choices offered. The color selection for everything from lipsticks to foundations is exceptional. Most of the makeup brushes are beautiful, full, and soft, as well as properly sized to fit the contours of the face and eyes.

When it comes to skincare you may be tempted to dismiss the small assortment M.A.C. offers and skip right to their makeup with its well-earned positive reputation. But doing so would mean missing a handful of beautifully formulated products that are worth trying. By no means is M.A.C.'s skin-care line one-stop shopping (at least not if you have blemishes, skin discolorations, or require more than a couple options per category), but you'll find more than just the color products impressive here, and the prices aren't unreasonable either!

M.A.C.'s salespeople are often trained makeup artists, too. This is especially true in the freestanding M.A.C. boutiques, where the staff tends to be true makeup artists.

Note: M.A.C. sets itself apart from other beauty brands by staying ahead of the curve by launching a seemingly-constant rotation of impressive limited edition products, usually with fashion-forward themes. Though it's impossible to review every limited edition product, many of M.A.C.'s are as impressive as those in their permanent collection.

Strengths: Some impressive moisturizers; praiseworthy foundations in a mostly gorgeous range of shades; good concealers; several great powder-based products including blush, bronzer, and eyeshadow in various finishes; dizzying array of lipstick shades in mostly sumptuous formulas; several very good mascaras (regular and waterproof); top-notch makeup brushes; many of the Prep + Prime products work as claimed.

Weaknesses:A few products with high levels of potential skin irritants.

Outdated formula that runs

This is an OK mascara. I suppose it would have been great about 20 years ago. It produces thick (not very long) lashes, but they are supper hard and the formula is hard to remove. I use face wash, makeup remove and still have black stains on my towel!! Additionally, even a little bit of moisture makes this formula run like crazy. The dual brush is clever but kind of an unnecessary gimmick. I have never used the top, one with less product, so for me it does not matter. I will not repurchase it.

Hard to wash off

I liked it, but there are other mascaras that are way better. It was so hard to remove.

Two Mascaras In One!

MAC's Haute & Naughty is one of their better (and pricier) mascaras. If you like a bold look, use the sparkly tipped wand. Caveat: it can get a little clumpy, and also builds up outside the tube, which gets messy. If you like a natural look, use the pink tipped wand that removes the excess. Caveat: it's awkward to wield the giant brush w/ the tiny handle on the long wand. But since there are plenty of other natural mascaras out there, this is worth the $$ only if you like a dramatic mascara.
