The new MAC Studio Sculpt Mascara in Superblack Lash ($17), coming September 4 to MAC counters and maccosmetics.com
“More!” the mascara monster roared. “I WANT MORE!”
She growled, baring her fangs, and her lips curled back. It was the deep, low growl that signaled danger was near. I steeled myself for her usual hissy fit.
“I know you want more,” I said, “but decent length, a good amount of separation and a jet-black carbon color are what you’ll get with MAC’s new Studio Sculpt Mascara in Superblack Lash.”
The mascara monster stomped her feet like a T. rex in four-inch Louboutins. “More!”
“Look,” I said, “it’s basically the same as the Sculpted Black Studio Sculpt Lash Mascara MAC released earlier this year, but richer and darker. Remember when I fed you Sculpted Black back in March? It was that one with the wand that looked like teeth…”
With a MAC Lipglass for scale
The mascara monster paused to consider this for a moment and then grunted, which I took for a “yes.” She appeared to relax somewhat, and then nodded, as if to say that she was ready to proceed.
“You liked that one just fine,” I said, “especially the brush’s teeth. You thought they made it super easy to separate your lashes, and you appreciated the lack of flaking and smudging, but, eventually, you grew dissatisfied, as you always do, and proceeded to grumble about craving more volume and better curl hold.
“This new Superblack Lash creates the same exact lash look. The separation and length are there, but it doesn’t add a ton of volume. Oh, and would you look at that? It’s more expensive. MAC raised the price a dollar from $16 to $17.”
Before and after yo!
