Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara is one of the latest from MAC. I am always after the newest MAC Mascara, even though Plush Lash will always be my fave from them. Think this one is better? Hmmm.....

What Nordstrom says about MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara:


A lightweight curling-and-lifting mascara in an intense, carbon-black pigment. Applies with a petite gripper brush embedded with microspheres to give each lash effortless, upward-bending definition and extreme volume. Easy wash-off formula. Smudge-free. Lasts 16 hours.

I was not a fan of this mascara the first time I used it. Or even the second time. I bought this up in New York and I wore it there and was like... meh didn't do anything and I have no volume.

I thought that. Until I saw pics. I posted the full face shot above so you can see how it really extended and curled the outer lashes (Instagram photo). Lately my favorite way to use this is by putting one coat on the lashes, focusing on the outer part of the eye, and then adding my Plush Lash over-top.

I felt that this mascara performed how the description stated, other than the extreme volume. But, if you use it in conjunction with the Plush Lash (or whatever other mascara you love for volume) it will look amaze.

MAC Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara retails for $16.00 and is available at your local MAC counter (try Nordstrom, Macy's, Bloomingdale's), MAC stores and online at
