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. :)
i bought this in november for december 2020 online without testing a sample first. it made my eyes swell up puffy. it had a noticeable fragrance like a perfume. i used it twice and both times my right eye became inflamed, swelled and bloated upper lid. i returned for a refund. the brand site is not working. i tried to call and report that allergic reaction. they should mention in the description that there is perfume in the mascara unlike most. i only brushed the outer third not even near the root. i got a refund with a nonphysical return thru customer service. i am now only using the tip to mark a beauty dot on my cheek where i have a beauty mark freckle. i cant use this on my eyes. it smells nice but beware if you have sensitive eyes. its not hypoallergenic and will irritate. that fragrance would be better for a body art pen not something in an organ we need to live and function. i have to be able to see without pain and swelling. my eyes started watering and my nose ran. my body rejects this chemicals. if you have a black beard to cover grays maybe or black brows or hair maybe it could be multi use but as mascara absolutely not. i was interrupted at work and had to emergency wash my face. i have never had an allergy to mascara. i am allergic to latex in eyelash glue. i wash my face with clinique for oily skin and take the day off balm. i had to use emergency eye drops. it took 2 days for the swelling to go down overnight. if you want to paint black cheetah spots on your cheek with this maybe. but for lashes, no way. their liner is waterproof tho. the brush was a good shape. the fragrance is like lillies very aromatic. i had to put ointement and will now visit an opthamologist for an exam. who puts perfume in mascara? unheard of. it doesnt smell like roofing tar like most mascaras. they masked it.

I originally bought this as a recommendation for my lower lashes. However, this stuff is AMAZING and lengthening! I use it on my upper eyelashes quite often and don't have any complaints yet!
Ashlyn from Wichita
I added this to my makeup kit years ago when Jaclyn Hill recommended it and have loved it ever since! While it's not my everyday mascara, I use it on special occasions and when wearing false lashes. It does wonders for your lashes, making them long and voluminous without clumps.

I use this mascara on my lower lashes because it does not smudge and is easily removed. I've purchased several tubes because it works great.
Mememe from san diego
I have been looking for a mascara that does not smudge. The only mascaras that dont smudge on me are the tubing kind of mascaras. I thought this is one of them since tubing mascaras are warm water washable also. The only thing i like about this is the lengthening effect but other mascaras do that too though.
Celeste from NJ
I love MAC products but this tube of gigablack is too small and not waterproof like it claims. It does separate and extend my lashes to perfection. Do better MAC.

I have been searching for a replacement for Laura Mercier's mascara since they discontinued it over a year ago. I've tried so many mascaras and they have all disappointed me, but now I am in heaven. I just purchased 3 more after trying this today. Thank you, Mac. 🎉 Lengthens my lashes and makes them fuller!
Amber from San Jacinto
I usually love all MAC products, but this mascara was horrible! No length, no volume. Nothing about this product was good at all!!!! Even using a lash curler I didn't help! Horrible product!
SY94904 from NorCal
Like most, I have tried too many mascaras to count. Gigablak and definicils are the only mascaras that do not smudge on me.
Shelly from Fl
Been using this for years for my under eye lashes. Never clumps, extends beautifully. Never fails!
RHmama from Boulder, Co
Ok usually I have to use a pre product like Lancôme conditioning CILS booster XL then put on mascara to get any curl and length to my short lashes.
I was in shock when I saw what this mascara did without the above …long curled up lashes with 2 coats!
If it comes off easily as it says with warm water I'm 100% sold.
This works better than my favorite Thrive mascara which is hard to beat.
Only con it does have a scent which bothers me somewhat.
Is perfume added to this or is it the ingredients?
Not sure but this stuff works like no other even without a lash curler.
Jo from Illinois
Great mascara that does not clump and definitely buildable. My eyes are sensitive and I have seasonal allergies this mascara never bothers me and easy to wash off.
Candy from Indiana
I highly recommend this mascara to any women no matter what type of eyelashes she has. This works wonders on all eyes. I love it and I am always recommending this to all my friends

I've used this mascara for years and hope it is never discontinued. I've tried others and always come back to this one. It isn't waterproof, but it is sweat and oily skin proof. This is the only mascara that doesn't leave little dots under my eyes. It comes off with oil free mascara remover and some warm water, and doesn't pull out my lashes the way most waterproof mascaras will.
jasmine from Florida
Florida local. On the most humid day, hanging outside chatting with my friends from noon to late afternoon and no smudges. At the end of the day, it was like same as I applied when I left home that day and I even have oily skin, sweating in humid heat that afternoon.
I hope they keep this formula for a long time.

I'm a "mascara conasiour"……trust me, I've tried just about every one on the market. From the drugstore brands all the way up to the designer $40 ones. This one is hands down the best. Goes on without clumping, lasts forever, makes you lashes look a mile long and does not flake or smudge. God's honest truth! And the brush is awesome for your lower lashes. Try it!! You'll thank me over and over.

I usually use tube mascara because everything smudges on my under eyes, but gave this mascara a chance and am SO GLAD I did. It lasted all day in 90 degree heat and through a sweaty spin class. All that, and so easy to take off as well (face wash and warm water). New favorite mascara ever. Full disclosure, I do work at Estee Lauder (owns MAC), but bought this mascara full-price in store at ULTA with my own $ and would absolutely do it again.
SeeHimEff from California
Full disclosure, I'm a cheater. I use a prescription eyelash enhancer, so I'm currently rocking some very lengthy lashes. BUT, they're not as full as I think they could be, so I need a little mascara assistance. Plus, makeup-junkie=must have everything!
The reason I got this particular mascara is because it was purported to be a tubing mascara in some online sources. Be warned, it is NOT. As such, there was the typical eyelid smudging that I get with every mascara, because I have caveman style deep set eyes.
Overall, it was mediocre on my chemically fake eyelashes. If you're searching for AMAZING, I don't think this is it.
Oily eyelids from Gainesville, Ga
I have really sensitive eyes and combination skin, I get really oily sometimes. I always have a problem with mascara flaking off and smearing all under my eye. With this mascara that DOESN'T happen. The wand is tiny so you can really get in there and coat your lashes. My lashes are already long and curled and this makes them look FANTASTIC. I have even slept in it and it still looks great the next morning. For reference I HATE the Better Than Sex mascara. It would flake and go everywhere on me. I LOVE this stuff and will keep repurchasing!!!
Tasha from Oregon
This is the best mascara I've ever used. Especially for bottom lashes. Every time I wear mascara it always flakes and runs under my eyes even if I use waterproof. This DOES NOT budge until I wash my face.
Fyrelight74 from Bakersfield, CA
Great for hooded eyes, no smudging or flaking! I'm a huge tubing mascara fan and this is one of the best!
Christine from Riverside CA
I don't really care for MAC BUT this is a great mascara if you have tiny lashes and the best part is....IT DOES NOT FLAKE!!! first time ever and even though it states waterproof they have a unique formula where it comes off great in the shower with " take the day off " or Neutrogena make up remover. I prefer Farmacys " Green Clean "
Marcela from USA
Super disappointed on the size of this product. The formula is ok so I feel i doesn't compensate how tiny this is.
Tasha from Tucson
I'm absolutely in love with this mascara!
After switching from matte foundations to more dewy ones I found that my traditional mascara's could not stay smudge proof.
Setting my dewy foundation with powder to prevent smudging just brought out my fine lines. Plus it looked weird.
Research suggested using this tubing mascara. I have no issues with my mascara smudging/smearing anymore and I'm super happy!
Phierice from ME
I have THE most sensitive eyes! Every mascara I have used, makes them extremely dry and it makes my eyes burn for like a week. Mac Gigablack lash is the only mascara I can use, I would recommend this to anyone who has an allergy to mascara.
