#7: I have found 'the one'

Happy Saturday everyone!

Hope you're having a lovely weekend. I arrived home from holiday on Thursday and was straight back to work today and back in again tomorrow - nothing like getting stuck in straight away is there?! Safe to say after one day of work after two weeks off, I feel pretty exhausted. Pathetic I know. Anyway, I digress! This post is about something very important in every girls' life, and that is mascara.

MAC launched a new mascara just after Christmas, and I snapped it up before my holiday. I was after a new mascara and so it came at the perfect time. MAC have so many mascaras, and I tend to go for the 'all rounders' - ones that curl, volumise, lengthen and define the lashes. My favourite ones until this baby were Haute and Naughty Too Black Lash and Dazzle Lash. In my opinion, this one has blown all other mascaras of any brand out of the water. Say hello to In Extreme Dimension mascara. Thank you MAC.

How amazing is that visual? Here's what MAC have to say about this mascara...

"Lashes take on unreal scale, structure and sweep-and now in a new Carbon shade, techno-chic black. The M•A•C patented brush design holds more mascara as rows of micro fibers weave in between lashes to separate, define and enhance on a dramatic lash-by-lash level."
"M∙A∙C's lightweight whipped formula saturates lashes root to tip, adds volume, extends length and creates curl, while conditioning for softness and flexibility. The final result: extreme dimension that won't smudge, clump or flake."
I love how MAC describe things on their website, they leave nothing out and I love the description they give. I would like to put out a disclaimer and say I am a total and utter mascara whore. I can't get enough of them. I flit from one to the other and have never been 100% happy with ones i've tried. I've tried cheap ones and expensive ones and it is something I know i'll always change. I'm not so sure anymore. This mascara has delivered every single day since i've worn it, and shows no signs of drying out three weeks later. I love the formulation. It feels so creamy when you apply it and the wand is massive, which I don't usually like but I find this one gives great control. I think this is because the bristles aren't massive so you're not getting mascara all over the place. I really like the packaging, some might think it's abit 'in your face' but it's something abit different to MAC's usual sleek black packaging.

As I said, I worked today and had the chance to try this mascara on two different customers in appointments. Sometimes, I feel that just because it works well for me, (I have naturally long lashes that curl very well with my Shu Uemera curlers) it might not be every womans' cup of tea. Both of my customers had short and straight lashes, and when I applied two coats of this, both of their reactions were 'wow!' I was also extremely impressed at how it really curled the lashes, and I didn't use lash curlers on either of my customer's before I applied the mascara.

'Where is the picture proof!!' I hear you scream! Here you go, don't say I'm not good to you.

Are you impressed? I am! This mascara is in the slightly more exepensive category for MAC mascaras at £18, but I know I would buy it again. Yes I get discount but hell I'd pay full whack for this in an instant.
MAC have come up trumps with this. I am well and truly impressed and i'm sure all my customers are just wishing I would shut up about 'my new and all time favourite mascara'. But I need to tell people, and I'm glad i've told you! Has anyone tried this product? What did you think?
