New MAC Opulash Mascara is MAC’s twelfth mascara introduction, making MAC a leader in mascara wardrobing. Opulash Mascara aims to deliver volume and curl with an extra-large brush.
When I buy a mascara, I generally do look for a volumizing formula, so when MAC sent me a tube of Opulash Mascara to review, I was intrigued. At first glance, the brush is definitely big. I’m getting used to these ginormous mascara wands, though, having used Bare Escentuals Buxom Lash Mascara (still one of my faves!) and some of the CoverGirl mascaras.
In terms of performance, I really like MAC Opulash Mascara. The tapered brush was able to coat each eyelash without any clumping or need for a comb to separate. Opulash does provide volume; it does take 2 or 3 coats to build up, however. I curl my lashes daily anyway, so this wasn’t as big of a deal, but yes, you do get an enhanced curl effect. At this time, Opulash comes in one shade: Optimum Black.
