It’s been quite a few months since I last did a ‘first impressions’ post, so it’s time for another one. This one is a bit overdue, since I’ve already featured the MAC Magic Extension mascara in my 5 favourites post from September 2021. However, as you might have guessed, I really like this mascara, so I still wanted to write this post.
The mascara has a big but more classic bristle brush wand. The formula appears a little sticky, but that makes the product grip on to the lashes, and it dries down quite quickly. I think my lashes looked really good; the mascara gave my lashes both length and volume, but especially volume. I did wear two coats on my top lashes to achieve this look. I used a spoolie to remove the mascara marks I got on my eyelids and underneath my eyes (there were very few though), and it was very easy. There was only a little transfer to my browbones/top of my eyelids after a few hours of wear but nothing too bad and the transfer was very minimal the rest of the day. I removed the mascara with regular eye make-up remover, and it was not the easiest mascara to remove; it took a bit more time and effort to remove than it does with most of my go-to mascaras. However, this mascara has a lot of good things going for it and only a few less good things, so overall I really enjoy this mascara. Since I wrote down my first impressions I’ve used up the mascara (which is a travel size), and I continued to enjoy it throughout the couple of months I used it.
