MAC Opulash Mascara

MAC Opulash Mascara

From MAC...

SEXY SWEEP… The most extreme volumization ever seen! Just like going to your hairdresser for the boldest Barbarella blowout you’d ever dare to wear, Opulash creates aesthetic extremes when it gets going, for a dramatic end look. It’s all in the brush: enlarged and engineered to grab roots, lift, hold, replicate, exaggerate, and build-out like an architect intent on astounding with structural sleight-of-hand. Pick up the brush – see it volumize and curl – and you’ll know the difference. Large diameter backs you up, tapered front tip makes inner corners sleeker to reach. Needless to say, no clumping or Spider-Woman Syndrome. 

Worth the HYPE??...

It's just OK for me. It's not the best mascara I have ever tried but it is far from the worst. I give it a 7.5 on a scale of 10.

YES the brush is huge and true there is no clumping. But I was not WOW'd by the volume factor at all. I do like this mascara but I am not floored by it's performance. I already have length and curl so all I ask for is volume. I did get nice volume but not as much as I expected.

 The price is just right ($14 US) and it is even bigger than other MAC mascaras (0.38 US oz.). Don't expect miracles but it is still a GOOD mascara.

MAC Opulash Mascara VS DIOR Diorshow Mascara

The new MAC Opulash Mascara has been compared to Dior Diorshow Mascara since the buzz started. 

So how do they compare? MAC Opulash has a much bigger brush (wider) but they have similar bristles and taper the same. They do pretty much the same thing to my lashes to tell you the truth except that Diorshow is a blacker black. Other than that they seem to perform the same for me. Remember all I need is volume though...so for almost half the price I say get MAC Opulash!

FEEDBACK from readers....it seems that MAC Opulash Mascara is winning this competition!

  1. Thanks for the review!

    Acccording to the pics, it looks like the Opulash gives your eyelashes more volume than the Diorshow!

  2. I've been considering this mascara so thank you for the review. I also have very long lashes and all I need is volume. How do you think opulash compares to Hypnose? Hypnose has been my HG for years but it's quite pricey :/

  3. Comparing the two photos, I really think the MAC comes out on top..

  4. I think u guys r right! Opulash is beating Diorshow for sure! I think overall they are close competitors.

    @ Lady...I wouldn't be able to compare. I never tried Lancome mascaras even tho I have heard good things. But I do think that the Opulash is worth a try for volume.

  5. I can't wait to get my hands on Opulash! The MA at the store let me look at the product ahead of time and when I saw that it wasn't runny like the other MAC mascaras, I was almost completely sold. I think this post just finished the transaction so to speak. :)

  6. Great review...I will be picking this up from MAC .....I love trying new mascara in the hopes for that perfect HG one....Kinda like foundation
