MAC Cosmetics Extended Play GigaBlack Mascara

Sasha Kempen

The packaging:
The lid of the product feels like metal, while the rest of the packaging is plastic. The mascara wand itself isn’t that long, but the actual bristle park is extended up quite high, which must be the reason why the named the product “extended lash play”. So the mascara wand bristles can coat more lashes with one stroke than the standard mascaras.

The effect:
It separates your lashes and adds volume, which makes it look as if you have lash extensions. I feel like the product works more for separating your lashes and extending them, rather than adding volume to them.

Not my favourite mascara, but it does a great job and it is also quite small and less bulky like a lot of mascaras are.

Dynamite comes in small packages


Never ever would I have thought this little tube of mascara would work so well. The tiny brush really grips each of my lashes, coating them in a solid shade of black. It almost feels like it is brushing out my lashes. I love using it on my bottom lashes as it is the prefect brush size. It does not clump and really lasts me the entire day. Plus, I love the bright blue packaging that stands out from the rest of my makeup. I will definitely be adding this mascara to my must-have list.
