Most Helpful Positive Review Worth it
I never buy high-end mascaras, just because they only last for 3 months once opened. However, I finally decided to take a risk and get a fairly expensive MAC mascara. I asked the lady at the MAC store for a mascara that gave length and volume, but was still wearable because I go to school. She told me to get this, and so I did.. and I just LOVE it! It's perfect. I waited to get home to try it because I was trying out a new mascara while I bought it. It's so easy to use and turns my short, straight asian lashes into beautiful, natural-looking and healthy lashes! I wish I got the name of the MAC lady, I wanna thank her. Anyway, this definitely changed my perspective about high-end mascaras. :)
Most Helpful Critical Review Definitely not my new favorite...
My previous favorite was a "gentle waterproof" mascara that another company discontinued. It washed off with my regular face wash, stayed put, and didn't bleed down my face when I cried. The Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara was offered as a similar product when I went to MAC looking for a replacement, and I have had SO many issues with it. First of all, if it's freezing out, sure, it doesn't come off when you cry. Over 100 degrees in a Phoenix summer? Might as well have poured black paint down my face. "Warm water" is all you need to get it off, which is apparently also the exact temperature of tears in the blistering desert sun. Yay. When not bawling my eyes out, this just flakes off in big clumps that find their way into my eyes and make them blood red (not exaggerating, was accused of having pink eye it was so bad), irritates the heck out of them, ruins my contacts, then I have to go out with naked lashes for a week to allow time for my eyes to calm down. Apparently I don't learn from my mistakes, because I have now been through this cycle 4 times. #smart.
When not falling off your eyes or melting in the summer sun, it does look great though! Just the right mix of natural and bold. Just wish it was a better product..

While this mascara does lengthen my lashes the formula tends to run. I am in healthcare and wear a mask all day. I am constantly cleaning my under eye area a few times a day
Not Waterproof, Very Buildable
Lauren from Fayetteville, AR
This product is not waterproof as advertised! That's always a terrible surprise. Other than that, the spoolie is smaller than most so you do have a lot of control over where you are applying the product. It is also a very buildable formula so one swipe is nice, two swipes is better, three swipes WOW. But seriously, don't cry or sweat too much otherwise your face will be a mess.
not worth it
blue from new york
clumpy, takes a long time to dry and not waterproof at all!!
DEANNA from NY
I highly recommend MAC Extended Gigablack Lash to anyone interested in purchasing this item! The mascara has a thin brush with bristles that allow you to reach all corners, each lash, prevent clumping, and separate lashes! Anytime I wear this makeup, I receive compliments, and am often asked if my lashes are real! (They are indeed)
Mist have gotten a faulty one
MJ from Kentucky
With all the glowing reviews I saw about his mascara, and it being from Mac, I thought I would give it a try. Waterproof? Nope. Tear proof? Not a chance. Yawn proof? Nope. As soon as any kind of liquid got near my eyes, off she went. I'm extremely disappointed in this mascara's performance and I won't be buying it again.
My fav for lower lashes
Yulkakapulka from Spokane wa
This is my #1 mascara for lower lashes, nothing is worse like having black under eye area from your mascara and this solves it. Stays put doesn't run and a little wand is perfect for those tiny eyelashes.
Best mascara ever !
Sbar from Philadelphia
Does not smudge , long lasting and makes my lashes look fabulous!
Love, love, love!
ISO the Perfect Mascara from Milwaukee,WI
I have been telling all my girls about this mascara. It stays on, no smudging, flaking, or clumping. But the best part is that you can remove it with warm water. I love the petite brush. It allows you to get all your lashes without getting mascara around the rest of your eye. Definitely a repeat buy!
This is a keeper

Has staying power. Lasts through my shifts without flaking. Definitely worth buying again

Did not stay on well at all and made my eyes water
Stretches My Lashes

I like this mascara. It really stretches my lashes very good top & bottom.
My Favorite Mascarra EVER!!!!
Jen from Springfield, MO
The application is easy. I go over my lashes 2-3 times to make them look longer. I have spent hundreds of dollars looking for the perfect mascara... This is my favorite mascara EVER!!! No priming needed.
Love the wand
AshT from Louisiana
Lengthens and curls. Love how spaced out the lashes are. Very wispy
Tiny brush; waters easily
Kate from TX
The wand was tiny and the formula was meh...I was totally unimpressed with this. If I messed with my contacts, the formula watered a lot. I would not waste my money on this when there are so many other great brands to try.
Rose from Nc
This product did separate lashes, but had to go back over several times . Did not create a fuller lash
kat from new york
i really like this mascara and the fact no clumps form whatsoever.
Dee from NY
This/that was my first time ordering this product. I highly recommend any consumers interested in purchasing the item to do so! I am very pleased with the quality of MAC's mascara. The the wand has a thin yet long brush perfect for separating lashes and maximizing usage of the mascara overall. The mascara washes off easily with warm water, it's very simple yet doesn't run easily from regular wear. When washing off, the mascara does not pull clumps of lashes with it either! I use Smashbox mascara primer before applying the MAC mascara, together between the combination of the two is perfect lash result!
Tried cause of a deal. Continue cause it's great
Karen from Wichita Falls,TX
Brush is a little off putting. It is small compared to most. But it layers for an incredible eye.
I would buy this product 100 times again!!!
Kristy from Mayfield, KY
I love love LOVE THIS MASCARA!

Best Mascara I've Ever Used
Mascara Girl from Northbrook, IL
MAC is an excellent brand of mascara. The brush is thin which allows for a smooth, no clump application.
happydog from NC
Good for daytime use. Not thick and glamorous but easy to use.
Tiny tube but I love the formula and brush
Jenna from Florida
I would give this mascara 5 stars easily if it weren't for how little product you get! It's sad, cause it'd be my holy grail mascara but it would blow my beauty budget to have to buy a new tube every 2-3 weeks. It's so small that I thought they sent a sample size on accident. The brush is thin and let's me get all the lashes in my inner corners and lower lid. The formula never runs in the Florida humidity.
What I needed
Dr. MAK from NY, NY
Bought this on the recommendation of a famous YouTuber. It's exactly what I needed for my lower lashes. Don't think I will ever go without it.
BB from Charlotte
This mascara gave my eyelashes a very long, some what thin, but spidery look that I loved!! If you're into thicker lashes but want this length, I recommend using this mascara first, then going over your lashes with Too Faced Better Than Sex after! Love it!!
