The New MAC Studio Sculpt Lash Mascara’s Toothy Brush Yearns To Take a Bite Out of Criminally Short Lashes

Open up and say, “Ah.”




Ha! This is a pretty accurate depiction of the way I look at the dentist’s office, sans the snot that’s usually running out of my nose, the black streaks of mascara-laden tears streaming down my cheeks and, let’s be real here, the glittery eye boogers that are usually up in the mix.

I’m sorry, was that TMI? 🙂

Anyway, teeth! I keep thinking about them, and not just because I’m supposed to go back to my freaking dentist’s office this or next week for round two of “The Tooth Scaling Chronicles,” but also because of the two sleek, toothy rows of bristles on the new MAC Studio Sculpt Lash mascara’s brush.

This brush has bite!

Don’t they look like really, really sharp teeth?

Or maybe I just read and watch too much sci-fi…

OK, so this mascara? I think it’s a lot like an eighth-grade dance.

Hear me out…

You know how when you danced with your lab partner but wanted to dance with the hot guy in varsity wrestling instead?


Like that, it’s OK. It’s nice enough. Adds some decent length, separation and lifts the curl a bit, but it won’t get you to walk the long way to math class for a slight chance at running into it in the halls, if you know what I mean.

It’s fine…but I’d rather hang out with MAC Extended Play Gigablack mascara, which has been my go-to MAC mascara for the past couple of months because of its better lengthening muscle and curl lift.

If you’re one of those lucky gals/dudes with built-in mega-fringe (JEALOUS!), or if you’re just looking for a little extra length and separation, MAC Studio Sculpt should do you fine.

I do think the thin, skinny bristles are totally precise. They do not mess around, and with them I feel like I have a lot of control over where I place the bristles.

Beware…because MAC Studio Sculpt Lash wants to sink its teeth into your lashes! You can find it now at MAC counters and online at ($16 a tube).

    Brush reminds me a bit of Clinique High Lengths (which I haven’t used). Looks good for a natural, defined look!

    The brush reminds me a bit of L’Oreal Butterfly mascara. That’s also a great one. I hear ya on the dentist stuff, though. Ever since I have had braces (in middle school), I have had very sensitive gums and teeth. One dentist I had was so heavy handed that I was in tears during the visit (and I’ve always had a ridiculously high pain tolerance), and needed lidocaine and Hurricaine to numb everything. I always let the dentist and hygienist know that my teeth and gums are super sensitive so that they know not to be heavy handed. You may also want to look into getting sedated of some sort before/during a visit – many dental offices offer that now because the experience is so unpleasant for so many people.

    That brush just wouldn’t work for me. I’ve used some like it and they just clump them all together.

    Karen, you surprised me about the dentist! Why, you may ask? Because you have the most lovely teeth- white, straight, and they look perfect. I can’t help but sympathize with your lack of dental enthusiasm. I’m not any too thrilled to go, either!

  11. Sylirael says:

    Slightly off-topic, but the Jouer lipstick in that last photo looks amazingly smooth and lovely on you! 😀

    My mum has to be given laughing gas to get through her scale and polish at the dentist – maybe you should ask if there’s something they can give you?

    What dark eyeliner/shadow do you have closest to your eyes. It looks grey and even with a little hint of green – beautiful!

    Oh my, Karen, that look is just amazing. I cannot stop looking at your wonderful skin and the makeup just really suits you! I have been reading your blog for so long, but this is probably the first time I’ve posted a comment but I just feel the urge to tell you how gorgeous you look :)))

    The Mascara… hm. It is lying besides me and I am afraid to open it 😀
