MAC False Lashes Extreme Black Mascara Sample Review

So, being a blogger or to be honest, someone who purchases makeup on a regular basis plus all the freebies you can get online, you end up with a lot of samples..

I thought I would start reviewing the samples to see if they are worth buying the full size product as a lot of the time the full size products can be expensive.

Today I’m starting with the MAC False Lashes Extreme Black Mascara, which retails for £19.00 @ MAC Cosmetics


The packaging for this mascara is different to other samples I’ve received as they usually come in a hard tube, this one came in a sort of flexible squeezy lipgloss type packaging which I’d never seen before for a mascara (Maybe I just haven’t tried many?!)

The brush didn’t look exciting to me at all, just looked like a standard mascara wand that I’m used to from the drugstore, hard bristles, lots of them and tapered at the end.


However.. The formula was impressive, it held a curl for 8+ hours as I had it on all day for testing purposes, didn’t flake off at all and didn’t irritate my eyes.

It didn’t clump, left me with length and a bit of volume, separated my eyelashes perfectly and I think this mascara looks natural, it would work for a ‘no make-up, make-up’ look!

So my final verdict? If I was feeling particularly spendy one day maybe I would buy the full size but I do get the same effect from some Drugstore mascaras (see my review on some here, I found the result similar to the Lash Sensational by Maybelline.

  1. I have a sample of this mascara too and I feel the same way! It is really lovely but drugstore mascaras are just so good I don’t think I could ever justify buying one for £19! I love the idea of reviewing samples though! I should really do the same and start using up some of mine :’) I have so many!
