MAC Cosmetics Magic Extension 5mm fiber mascara review

If you were to ask a bunch of people about the product they would never leave home without, most would say mascara, including me. A quick glance can instantly make you look, and therefore feel, more alert and more organized. I constantly go through mascaras for this reason, but the new formula from MAC Cosmetics is one that I try to make last as long as possible.

The brand’s Magic Extension 5mm Fiber Mascara ($ 25) has just launched and already has a reputation for providing extreme length to your lashes. The “5mm” in the name refers to the five millimeter long fibers in the formula that help give your lashes that eyelash extension date look. When you take the wand out of the tube for the first time, you can actually see these fibers clinging to the tip of the brush.

In addition to these lengthening fibers, the mascara contains crystal elixir powder, which helps to intensify the carbon black color of the pigment, as well as olive oil derivatives and natural waxes to condition your natural lashes. The brush is cone-shaped with a slightly tapered end and helps grip each individual lash – even those in hard-to-reach corners – to coat them with pigment and curl them upward. What I also love about the brush is the way the soft, intertwined bristles paint the formula evenly across your lashes so there aren’t any lumps.

I first put the mascara on one eye to see how much it volumizes and lengthens my lashes and I could see a visible difference in just one coat. A few more passes with the wand and I had eyelashes that looked like a fake strip. As a person with naturally straight lashes, I’m always looking for a formula that meets all categories: volume, length, definition and curvature. I’m happy to report that this mascara ticks all of those boxes.

The formula isn’t waterproof, so I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re going for a swim or beach this summer, but that doesn’t mean it won’t hold up. After wearing it for seven hours on a 91 degree day, it didn’t even smudge a little. It is major. I already dread the day when I will miss this hit.
