Makeup Bag Staples: MAC Plushlash

MAC Plushlash ($13) is one of the best mascaras I’ve ever come across. I’m a mascara junkie, and I try basically anything that promises to thicken my lashes. This is by far my favorite budget-friendly option. Considering that most drugstore mascaras cost around $8, this baby is a bargain: a high-end mascara at a low-budget price.

It lengthens dramatically. It thickens ridiculously. It plumps up lashes and fans them out into a lush, long, flirty fringe that is so sexy. The mascara dries to an inky black finish. You could wear this mascara with nothing else and still look drop-dead gorgeous. I’ve been asked multiple times while wearing this if I’m donning false lashes.

The wand is the key: it’s tapered at the top, and flat on the sides. Use the flat side to deposit color on lashes, and then wiggle the brush through to fan them out. It’s densely-packed with tiny bristles, which grab each lash to maximize right down to the inner and outer corners.

The formula glides on smoothly, with no clumping. I rarely need a lashcomb with Plushlash. You also never have to waste time wiping the wand off on the tube; excess product isn’t a problem here. You won’t have creepy spider eyes with this mascara; just full, defined, lush lashes. And after hours of wear, no smudging or flaking, and lashes are never brittle.

I swear by this. If you like thick, long, beautiful lashes, I think you will, too.

    This is my favorite mascara, too. I generally don’t like MAC mascaras. I’ve tried Mascara X and Zoom Lash — both are crap. The only other decent one is Fibre Rich Lash, but that doesn’t come close to Plushlash. Hope they never discontinue this!

      Clair, I’m with you on the other MAC mascaras – the only one I’ve had any luck with was Fibre Lash, and that was back in 2004. I haven’t used it since. But there is a marked difference between Plushlash and the rest. I can’t believe they’re made by the same brand!

    Hmmm I think I’ll have to give it a go! I’ve been addicted to BadGal Lash, but this is a bit cheaper. :)

    I’ll have to check this out! I’ve been committed to Diorshow, but have been looking for something a little less pricey. It gets gunky pretty quickly for the price, and I’m tired of shelling out the cash so often. Thanks for the recommendation.

    • SugarSocial says:

      Libby, let me know how you like it! It’s actually similar to Diorshow, but, in my opinon, much better. It’s more dramatic-looking than Diorshow, and a lot less expensive.

    This is the best! I always keep an extra on hand for when I run out. I’m obsessed with it.
