You win some, you lose some… When I got my sun allergy/bad reaction to a face cream a couple of months ago, I was suggested to try using less makeup and skincare products. Unfortunately, dermatologists haven’t found out how to bring my skin back to its normal condition yet. That’s why my foundations, powders, bronzers are still away from my eyes if it’s not really necessary for me to use them. As a beauty lover, this isn’t something I enjoy but on the other hand, I got the chance to try a lot of eye products. Suddenly, the girl that almost never wore eyeshadows became the one that loves playing around with different shades.
I’ve discovered amazing mascaras, as well and today I’m sharing with you one of them. I had really high hopes for the new MAC Bold & Bad Lash* when I received it because I’ve been using several MAC mascaras lately and I love them but also, just take a look at it. First of all, the packaging is eye-catching, it’s a silver tube with red and black caps. The letters are in graffiti style and feel velvety soft, it’s quite unusual and I really like it. The most significant feature is the dual-chamber container because you basically get a two-in-one product. Two mascara wands, two different formulas in one tube.
Of course, this isn’t the first dual MAC mascara but it is the first from them to have both, different brushes and formulas.
The larger brush is designed to volumise and lengthen the upper lashes while the smaller brush for the lower lashes makes the application precise, thanks to the tiny bristles and the smudge-proof formula.
I don’t usually wear mascara on my bottom lashes because I look like I’ve been crying and it somehow makes my dark circles even more visible. But I have to say, with this tiny wand everything looks different and my lashes get the right amount of volume and separation. Both formulas are clump-free and long-wearing, I’d had the mascara on for over 10 hours on a hot day and I was pleasantly surprised to see that at the end of the day, it still looked perfect. It holds the curl really well and sometimes, I don’t even use my eyelash curlers. You can make the lashes appear quite natural or create a bold look with this mascara, it’s really versatile.
I have sensitive eyes and I’m a contact lens wearer but I haven’t faced any irritations or other bad reactions.
As a person who struggles with lower lashes, I think MAC Bold & Bad Lash* is groundbreaking because you don’t need two separate mascara tubes to make sure the application will be precise and there will be no smudging. I get doll eyes in just a few strokes, I don’t look like I’ve been crying or like my dark circles are even more prominent and I don’t have to worry about flaking even after 10 hours of wear. I know every person likes different mascara types and it is individual when it comes to finding the right one but I’m really impressed by MAC Bold & Bad Lash* and can’t say enough good words about it.
