Pros: charcoal black, easy to wash off, extends length, separation, volume
Cons: the formula isn't damp-proof

I’ve never complained about my lashes. I know that they aren’t short or rare. In my opinion, they are okay. If I don’t wear any mascara, they don’t look prominent. But once I apply some mascara on, I can see how beautiful they become.

It’s a rare occasion for me to find a mascara which doesn’t suit my lashes. Usually, all mascaras, either from street brands or high-end, elongate them and saturate with color. After all these years of testing, I have found my faves and this IN EXTREME DIMENSION 3D BLACK LASH from MAC is one of them.

 

Name: MAC IN EXTREME DIMENSION 3D BLACK LASH

Outer appearance: The tube with the mascara seems unique. The body of it is round and long, really looks like an hourglass.

The tube is adorned with glossy branded lettering all over. The product was initially housed with a black matte box, where they state all the product necessary info (ingredients, country of manufacturing, shelf life and so on).

The brush here is round and silicone. The bristles are short and picky. It’s of average size and I find it nice to coat my lashes. The stopper works well. Sometimes it can still let some more product out, which isn’t a problem and a slight wipe off over the rims of the tube easily saves the situation.

Color and consistency: The formula is black, even charcoal black here. The consistency is regular and there’s nothing special about it. It doesn’t clump my lashes and after application, it gives me some time to correct any mishaps or separate my lashes.

Application and staying power: The brush, which is small and handy, allows me to coat my lashes with a few strokes. If you want, you can pack it. However, there’s a downside. The product falls out a little. It isn’t critical, yet not at all pleasant. Besides, it can stain my skin (within the first minutes unless it dries down).

The staying power is excellent - this mascara looks decent throughout the day. But it’s still better to use it when there’s no rain or snow outside because the formula can’t stand anything wet. I performed an experiment. Here’s what happens to this mascara if I wet it with water and then touch with my finger. It smudges and washes off.

Impressions of use: If only it was damp-proof, I’d have been in love with it. Yet still, the result it shows is impressive. The mascara applies beautifully on my lashes, separating and volumizing them. My lashes look so rich with it on, yet not too heavy at the same time. It feels like the formula coats every lash, curling it and making them so lightweight.

You’ll feel very comfortable wearing this mascara throughout the day. As for the fallout, this boo-boo happens only when the product is new. Some time later you’ll forget about the black fallen clumps.

It’s easy to remove, you could see it from my experiment. However, it’s better to use not only water but also bi-phase removers/cleansers/micellar water/etc. to remove it.

The product has never made me reactive or allergic. What’s more, it goes such a long way. In a word, I highly recommend it for purchasing.
