Best Mascara
Tags +Volumizing/Curls, Lengthening, Natural, Defining, Dramatic, everyday use
I have been using this mascara since it first came out and it works the best with my eyelashes. Keep in mind that you do have to apply at least 2-3 coats to see a dramatic look. I tried looking for a drugstore brand mascara that could compare, and there wasn't one that came close to what this mascara does for me. It lasts all day/night and does not smudge or get clumpy. If you want a natural look you can apply less mascara, but for that dramatic look, apply more than 2 coats. Will continue using it always!!!

Great but not that great
Tags +Volumizing/Curls
I bought plush lash because they told me it would give me a dramatic look. Honestly I can't see it. It does give volume but its not an OMG volume or dramatic look. The brush is also really fat and its complicated to use it on my little eyes.

My Desert Island Product
Tags +Dramatic, Volumizing/Curls, Lengthening, Natural, everything!
I'm a mascara junkie. Drug store, department store, I love it! But this stuff is my baby. This mascara is my number one MAC product! I never have less than three tubes in my possession--one in my purse, one in my makeup bag and a new one stored away. Its formula is never stiff or brittle leaving my lashes soft and flexible. It washes away easily and never leaves behind residue or unwanted pigmentation. There's hardly any scent to it, it's great for layering with itself or other mascaras and is easy to clean off false lashes. I can wear this very naturally or turn it up and make it dramatic. It blends natural lashes with false ones very seamlessly and never 'balls up' or breaks down causing particles to get into your eyes causing discomfort. If MAC ever stops making this or tweaks the formula too much, I'll probably stop the majority of my purchasing with them. My only complaint is that I wish there was a much larger shade selection.

Changed brush material
Tags +Dramatic, Volumizing/Curls
I first bought this mascara about three years ago and absolutely ADORED it! It volumized, never clumped, it did everything for my eyes so I was hooked on it as one of my best ever mascaras.
However, this year when I purchased it I noticed that there's a slight difference in the quality of the brush - it used to have a much softer material that would take a lot of liquid and apply it on your lashes, but now the quality of the brush resembles the cheap drugstore-type of mascaras - the hair of the brush is very hard, there is not much liquid on it...anyway, I was dissapointed and still am. My solution to make this work is to use one of my old brushes from a Plush Lash when applying it...I do love MAC and recommend their products highly, I just wish they did not compromise the quality of this particular product. I still hope that maybe it was just bad luck and the next one I'll buy will be quality-of-the-brush-wise just like their old ones.

Pleasantly Surprised
Tags +Defining, Dramatic, Volumizing/Curls, Lengthening, Natural, daytime, night out
I'm always on the hunt for the perfect mascara(s), and this one is definitely up there on my list of favorites. I purchased this on a whim a couple of days ago, as I'd never before tried a MAC mascara. I've been using this as my daytime mascara and I have to say that I really like it. It does what it claims - adds volume and slightly curls my lashes, with rich pigment which gives me a pretty and flirty look that adds a touch of drama still appropriate for daytime and work. I wore just the mascara on my eyes one day - no liner or shadow, just a few thin coats of this mascara and some highlighter on my brow. The result was such an innocent and natural look, my lashes were the star of the show and they looked a mile long, thick and healthy. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I wear contacts and I made the mistake of starting too far down on my lashline/waterline, so I ended up getting some residue on my contacts which seriously clouded my vision and was a royal pain in the rear to remove lol. Other than that, I really like this product, so much so that I didn't even gripe about the price tag. I will buy it again when I run out and if it goes on sale I will stock up.

Amazing!
Tags +Defining, Dramatic, Volumizing/Curls, Lengthening, Natural
I don't understand the lower ratings on this--absolute HG status for me. I've gone through four tubes, and I'm still nothing short of amazed. It curls, lengthens and adds volume (oh, the volume!). It washes off with none of that annoying residue left behind, and a tube lasts forever. Lashes are not dry and crusty, and it does not clump. I sometimes take a break to try other mascaras, and every time i come back to it I'm amazed by how much better Plush Lash performs than other high end brands. Please don't even discontinue it!

Plush and Feathery
Tags +Volumizing/Curls, Natural, Dramatic, if you have naturally long lashes, sparse lashes, feathery effect
This is the only mascara from mac that I own. I have very long, yet sparse lashes and this brush is pretty great. I need a large bristley brush to pump up my lashes and this does the trick! After I curl my lashes, I sweep it on generously. I really like this formula because its on the drier side (ladies remember: dry formulas = volume, wet = length) anyways, its an overall great product, however I probably will not re-purchase. Nothing against this product, but I can buy 2 drugstore mascaras for the same effect. Great product however, I would recommend buying to try it out

Definitely gives your eyelashes plumpness. Everytime I use this, I look as if I have thicker eyelashes, and like I have even more eyelashes than I had before. Mine are extremely short, but with this layered over top of my lengthening mascara, I look as if I have long, thick eyelashes.

Best for Plump Lashes
Tags +Volumizing/Curls, Dramatic
This is one of the two MAC mascaras that I trust the most so far (the other one is Pro Lash), and it really gets my lashes full and volumized. I love the consistency of the mascara substance, because it's not too fluid and liquidy, but not too thick either. The brush is easy to work with too.
LOVE IT!!

Great for my long lashes!
Tags +Volumizing/Curls, Defining, Dramatic
I used Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara for about 12 years until they discontinued it last year. I tried many, many mascaras in order to find one that would plump my lashes and lengthen them the way I was used to with my old mascara, but none worked nearly as well. Finally I went into a MAC store and was recommended this mascara. Here are the reasons it works for me:
I have long, semi-curly lashes that are my favorite feature. I like to play them up as much as possible, so I apply 2-3 coats of mascara every single day, depending on the occasion. This formula allows me to apply multiple coats while my lashes remain flexible and not clumpy or crusty. It is considered water-resistant, but still comes off easily in the shower and with my awesome MAC facial wipes.
I am assuming that if you have short or non-curly lashes, you may have to do some extra work with an eyelash curler or other such tool before using ANY mascara. I happen to be one of those lucky girls without such a problem, and when it comes to plumping your lashes, I think this mascara does an amazing job. This is my new favorite, and I'm sticking with it.

Great for Natural looking length
Tags +Lengthening, Natural, Defining
This mascara doesnt exactley give any dramatic results. But it gives natural looking length. It does lengthen but it looks like your were born with it. For volumizing, i didnt see it volumize too much for me. the bristles are pretty much in a criss cross kind of pattern and it sepreates lashes great so no clumping! :) gives gorgeous length though. But its nothing too dramatic.

This mascara is a must have for me, I use it constantly. It definitely volumizes and defines my lashes! It does everything it says it does. At first it was hard to apply, since it's bigger then most mascaras I own, but I got used to it. It gets the job done!
Love it! xx

Nothing plush about it
Well this one's going back. My lashes barely changed after 2 coats. Wasn't going to waste time with a 3rd. Back to Studio Fix.

the best
Tags +Volumizing/Curls, Lengthening, Defining, Natural, Dramatic
okay, this mascara, truly, is the best mascara ever made...I've been using it for 6 years, at least, & I will never stop buying it cause even though it was only $11 when I first started using it, it's sooo totally worth the $16! I mean, I have never bought so many tubes of a single mascara in my life. sometimes, I get bored & wanna try different mascaras, just for fun & I love makeup, but I always always always come back to this & it's always always always the best, compared to any other. I love the way the brush is, especially since one of my eyes is slightly bigger than the other, so that also makes my eyelashes different, however, this mascara brush seems as though it has 4 different sides to it, so it conforms to both sets of my lashes & makes them look the same. it's the best & I also very much so enjoy using it since it does add soo much volume & it makes my lashes so plush but it doesn't budge, even if I cry! I mean, if I actively use water & rub away at my eyes, then it'll come off but other than that? no way! so buy it and enjoy! ;)

Love it
Tags +Defining, Volumizing/Curls
I love this mascara. It is definitely buildable, so if I want a natural look I can do that, but multiple layers create clump-free drama. I noticed a good amount of lengthening as well. The trick seems to be giving it a little bit of time to dry before applying the next layer if you're looking for real drama. Overall this is an excellent mascara, I highly recommend it for anyone looking for volume that doesn't clump.

Get Something Else!
I really dislike this mascara because it is clumpy and I cannot put it on without smearing it all over my eyes.
