Review Overview

Studio Sculpt Lash features a uniquely designed mascara wand of just two rows of bristles. The intention behind this brush design is to "separate each lash for instant definition, length and curl", and we're pleased to tell you it actually works!

Because the wand is so sparse you can really see what you're doing. This makes it is easier to apply and ensures every last lash is defined to your level of satisfaction. Also, the way the bristles are spaced really delivers on definition while the formula adds length and curl.

Volume (thickness) is just so-so, but that's a minor setback. Overall, this mascara is wonderful—and it doesn't flake or smudge!

Note: At least for the time being, Studio Sculpt Lash is only offered in black.

Pros:
  • Defines lashes and adds length and curl.
  • Brush design makes it easy to see what you're doing, so reaching every lash is easier than usual.
  • Flake-free and smudge-resistant.
Cons:
  • None.

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.

Great Mascara

I was in a rush to try this mascara at it is very similar to the Sisley Fortifiant Mascara, which I have been loving, but is tré expensive. The price point of the M.A.C. mascara is right in my price range. I think it is a wonderful lengthening mascara, it does dry quickly so you have to work fast, but it is light weight and holds a curl. If you want thicker lashes use a primer and you get an extra pop. Cons...only comes in black, unlike Sisley that has a dark gorgeous brown which I prefer.

Awesome Mascara!

I purchased this mascara the same day Paula's review came out and boy was I wowed. I don't always agree with her reviews, because some products she does not like work for me and vice versa. This mascara can be a little tricky to use. I used the flat side to deposit the product, then used the comb side to smooth it through the lashes. You have to work quickly as it dries fast. Do one eye at a time to avoid clumping. It lasted all day with no flaking and lashes felt soft. Great mascara!
