This has to be one of the most amazing MAC mascaras. I love how tiny this little brush is, but don't let it fool you! It separates lashes like no ones business for the most gorgeously defined lashes. Though the brush is a peek point(hello tiny short lashes that are now looking longer! And oh so defined lower lashes and no smears), it's the formula that gets me. It's clay base is heat, water, humidity and sweat resistant but comes off best with warm water at the end of the day. I can attest to each one of those claims. I love it. 005/100 #100daysofMAC #MAC #MACcosmetics @MACcosmetics #MACartist #MAChbDartmouth @MAChbDartmouth #MACjunkies #MACaddict #MACmakeup #MAClobsterpoutine #makeup #MUA #makeupartist #makeupartistry #angelahixmua #makeupjunkie #productjunkie #makeupaddict #makeupobsessed #WakeUpAndMakeup #LoveMakeup #extendedplaymascara #mascara #lashes #MACextendedplay
