MAC Opulash Mascara

Last week I did something I hadn’t done in quite a long time…I went haulin’! Celebrating the end of the school year (classroom teachers last day – not mine), I was exhausted and proud that I survived the first year in my new job. And what a year it was…

So I decided it was time to take a trip to Tyson’s Corner Mall in NOVA (my future home I have decided – I am up for the commute) and hit up the MAC and Lush. I was going to go to Sephora too, but lucky me, my mall opened a mini-Sephora inside of the JC Penney’s so I can stop there any ‘ole time I want!

I decided it was time to pamper myself and I needed a few necessities that I had run out of. While I was there, (I had the most amazing sales girl for a change at MAC – very helpful & full of compliments), I decided I was going to try out the Opulash. I hadn’t been following MAC’s new products of recent due to my unwillingness to buy anything in hopes of saving my beauty splurge funds for my weight loss goal (hello Louboutin’s – when I reach my next weight loss goal anyway) , but that went on the back burner so I could get some goodies! In that was the Opulash.

I purchased it for a few reasons:

One: I’m always on the lookout for new mascaras.
Two: The wand is huge and reminded me of Dior’s Diorshow large wand – I said that before the associate did, but she said that’s a huge selling point for people.
Three: $14 USD is pretty awesome for a mascara that works just as well as Dior’s $28.
Four: The tube is huge compared to the other containers of mascara MAC sells, giving you the ultimate bang for your buck.

When I got home and used it this is what I discovered: 

One: The wand really is comparable to the Dior Diorshow mascara wand
Two: My lashes appear longer and have much more volume to them than with other mascara’s I’ve used in the past
Three: When I remove the mascara, it comes off easily – I don’t wake up the next day and look like I have a black eye even though I used makeup remover wipes and face cleanser on my eyes & face.
Four: This stuff stays in place throughout the course of the day. Sometimes my mascara ends up underneath my lower lashes but not with this mascara – at least not yet anyway (and the temperatures have been very close to the 100 F mark recently).

So at the moment, this is my new love. I have put aside all my other mascara’s to pay special attention to this one. It seems that many have a love – hate relationship when it comes to mascara’s. Right now, I am happy. Are you going to try this product or do you have it already? Let me know your favorite mascara or weigh in on your opinions for this one in the comments below.
