MAC Studio Sculpt Lash

MAC Studio Sculpt Lash ($16) is a new mascara that MAC recently launched for the Spring 2014 season. What sets MAC Studio Sculpt Lash Mascara apart from regular mascara is its divided comb bristled applicator. It’s split down the sides and features “teeth” on each side which offers a precise way to pull lashes upwards and out producing thickness according to MAC as well as fullness.

Take a look!

MAC Studio Sculpt Lash’s unique applicator definitely sets it apart in a sea of mascara. This has tiny teeth which act as a lash comb of sorts to pull lashes outward. The formula is weightless and doesn’t leave lashes sticky, stiff, or crunchy.

The tiny teeth and the thin applicator pull lashes forward nicely and produce very night length with a natural, weightless finish. I’d go so far as to call the effects fluttery. It looks like I’m not even wearing mascara on my lashes at all yet the nice bit of curl and length the formula adds does produce a natural flutter to my lashes.

On the down side it isn’t enough for me…I desire more volume and drama. The length is nice but it also seems to thin out and take away from the fullness of my lashes. In this case I think it makes a better prime to add length and to be followed up with another mascara to add more volume and drama.

If you’re fine with natural, lighter looking lashes I think MAC Studio Sculpt Lash is an excellent formula. It adds length but no real drama of fullness to lashes creating the backdrop for a perfectly natural lash look. However, if you like a fuller lash look with more boldness to your lashes it could be slightly disappointing!

    I’d like to try this just out of curiosity. When you say it makes your lashes fluttery and after seeing the comb it reminds me of L’oreals butterfly mascara with the fanned out comb wand as it has teeth on either side too! Would you liken it to that?

    • Isabella Muse

      not really as I disliked L’oreal’s butterfly mascara…this produces more of a fluttery longer lash than it did. loreal didn’t give me much length!

    this looks very similar to a discontinued maybeline mascara (lash stylist). that mascara worked amazing on me…i was so sad wen it got discontinued.

    i might try this to see how it works on me….

      I was thinking the same thing!! I swear Lash stylist must’ve had a big following and never should have gotten discontinued LoL that is my all time favorite mascara. I am going to try this. Hopefully it compares.

    muse, have u tried layering mascaras? layering mascara works well on me, i usually do a volume mascara 1st (such as loreal voluminious) and then use a lengthening mascara while the 1st coat is still slightly sticky.

    works well on me. have u ever tried that?
