Worth it
Tags +Volumizing/Curls, Lengthening, Natural
I never buy high-end mascaras, just because they only last for 3 months once opened. However, I finally decided to take a risk and get a fairly expensive MAC mascara. I asked the lady at the MAC store for a mascara that gave length and volume, but was still wearable because I go to school. She told me to get this, and so I did.. and I just LOVE it! It's perfect. I waited to get home to try it because I was trying out a new mascara while I bought it. It's so easy to use and turns my short, straight asian lashes into beautiful, natural-looking and healthy lashes! I wish I got the name of the MAC lady, I wanna thank her. Anyway, this definitely changed my perspective about high-end mascaras. :)

I'm a fan
Tags +Volumizing/Curls, long days
Always in search of a good mascara. This time, I wanted bold without clump and the need for eye make up remover at the end of the day. I snagged the last one at a department store close by. I still needed to use a comb after two applications, to separate my lashes, but it wasn't too bad. This does not make my lashes feel stiff, lasts a long time, and true enough, washes off with warm water. Today, played a set of tennis and spent 3 hours at the driving range, and Extended Play Gigablack did not smudge. After my shower when I got home, no racoon eyes and all gone!

This is the first time I use any MAC products for my eyes. I was satisfy with the outcome, but the feeling on my eyes was not pleasant. Irritation and ( red bump) on the top eyelids.

Awesome
Tags +Defining, Dramatic, Volumizing/Curls, Lengthening, Natural, bottom lashes
I love this mascara. I mostly use it on my bottom lashes cause it lasts and doesn't smear or flake and doesn't leave unsightly raccoon eyes. I have used it on my top lashes and its good for that too. Great product!

My "holy grail" mascara
Tags +Volumizing/Curls, Lengthening, Defining
I've been using Studio Fix for years, as it is clean, simple, and NEVER clumps on me. Every once in a while I would try a different mascara to find something more volumizing (False Lashes, Opulash to name a few) but I found them all to be grossly clumpy, so back to Studio Fix I'd go. A MAC artist introduced this to me on a recent store trip, and I am IN LOVE! A bit more drama and NO clumping! I know it's not sold as waterproof, but it dealt well at a funeral with very minimal flaking. I don't know how the non-"Gigablack" formula is, but this one is the perfect mascara. Please MAC, never get rid of this!!

Love It
Tags +Long wearing
I really love this one. It stays put ALL day even through workouts and comes of quite well with just warm water. Awesome for a woman that doesn't like to have to use a chisel to get her make up off!

Horrible!!
Just received this mascara 2 days ago and was so excited about my new mascara. Couldn't believe the moment I put it on it ran down my face! It's supposed to be waterproof. That is one thing it is not! For half the day I am constantly wiping the mascara from under my eyes. I look like a raccoon half the day. I'm so disappointed.

Best
Tags +Defining, Natural, everyday
Best Black every day mascara - not too thick, and great for lower lash line. Stays in place all day, doesn’t flake or fall down, and it's easy to remove at the end of the day. Great small brush applicator, no mess or clumping.

Wonderful Lashes.
Tags +Defining, Lengthening, Natural
It separated and lengthened my lashes beautifully. It does not make the lashes look fuller, but definitely longer, more natural.
This is now my go to Mascara.

THE WORST
Tags +frustration
I bought this mascara because of the rave reviews and I am SO disappointed, it is actually the WORST mascara I have ever used ever ever!! By the third swipe it is sooo thick and wet, you end up with just 5 big, fat, crusty and crooked eyelashes that actually look shorter than normal.
Honestly I have tried to love it, and used it for 2 weeks now but I give up. Often I have to remove it and re-do my makeup with an old mascara instead. Annoying! I will give it this though: definitely curls and doesn't smudge.

Ah-mazing
Tags +Defining, Lengthening
I am on my umpteenth tube of this mascara and time and time again it's awesome. I wish it lasted a little longer but when it's almost empty it is hard to apply but still 'good to the last drop' I always keep a backup waiting so I don't have to wait to reorder <3

Goes on beautifully. Lasts ALL day. A little messy to get off if using only warm water but it doesn't require any make-up remover.

Never ever get rid of this mascara. It is fantastic. I've tried them all, and this one makes me happy. I have short lashes, and the Extended Play Gigablack lash lengthens without clumping, and I don't need to use a curler anymore. Thank you MAC!!

What can I say? LOVE!
Tags +Lengthening, Defining, Natural
This mascara for me was a toss up, as it's small for the price and I didn't know whether I'd want my daily to be so expensive. However, I love it. My eyelashes are long and defined, especially when using an eye lash curler. Highly recommend!

Failed false lashes...
Tags +Volumizing/Curls
I have long thin curly eyelashes and this made them too curly. It also clumped and did not separate my lashes well. I was looking for the thick false effect and it's too bad it didn't work for me. If you have straight lashes this might work for you. I also tried combining this with another mascara and it failed with each one. I have quite a collection so it's too bad but I'll keep looking.

Extends but that's about it... Not my fav.
Tags +Lengthening, people with thick eyelashes
Not a big fan of this mascara . I have worn it everyday for a week now and each time I apply it , it clumps. I haven't had this problem with any of the other mac mascaras before. I didn't see any added volume in fact I feel it made my eyelashes look thinner. Maybe a good mascara for those in no need for added volume .

This wonderful product defines my lashes, while separating each lash from the other. Perfect for everyday use! Gives a rather natural look
