MAC Studio Fix Lash, A Haiku Review

Published in: MAC Makeup, Product Reviews

Studio Fix Lash,
Such a steal for 13 bucks!
Yer the bomb dizzle.


My lashes look so
Full and almost like they’re fake
What is the secret?

It’s a mousse, says MAC
Not like the animal; a
Mousse-like formula!

Nekkid lashes

Short, stubby lashes
Stand no chance. Fix grabs, extends,
Separates and lifts.

One layer

Every single lash
Longer, thicker, reaching up
They could touch the sky.

Two layers

Smudging, flaking — no!
So easy to remove, too.
MBB Rating…

Three layers


A+ 🙂

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


Just got the word from
Urban Decay; a friends and
family sale, NOW!

    oh dear…a new MAC mascara? i do so love me my Dazzlelash. looks like i’ll need to look and see what this one does for me…

  2. Sylvie says:

    Hi Karen, do you think this holds a curl well?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Sylvie,

      It’s not as extreme as something like Estee Lauder Sumptuous bold because it relaxes them just a tad, so the lashes lift up and out as opposed to just up. I still like it though!

  3. NINA says:

    Awesome haiku and awesome review. Makes me wanna go to MAC and buy it, NOW! 😀

  4. Marce says:

    • Karen says:

      This one! It flakes less, and my lashes look and feel less crispy.

      • good to know 🙂 this one’s going on my mac list then

      • Karen says:

        I am still kinda shocked at the price… MAC mascaras are still surprisingly affordable. Let’s hope they keep it that way *crosses fingers*.

        What else is your MAC list?

        • I know! Drugstore mascara prices are practically even with Mac now, it’s ridiculous. loll so many things are on my Mac list but at the top are the Lustreglass in Spring Bean, this, and Blacktrack fluidline. I have the Sonia Kashuk cream liner and while it’s nice, it doesn’t quite do it for me. Speaking of which, I have to remember to go to Target and pick up that bent eyeliner brush you reviewed. Want!

  9. Melissa says:

    I was so upset when they got rid of Loud Lash…that was my perfect mascara, but this softened the blow a little bit. I love the way it goes on.

  10. kypris says:

    Ooh, and very natural-looking too! I may invest… I need a new one (Clarins is clumpy on me 🙁 ) and Lancome is very expensive…

    • Karen says:

      Bummer that the Clarins one didn’t work for you — I love that one for volume at the base.

      Isn’t it shocking how expensive mascaras are now?? $13 is downright cheap!

  11. Jen says:

    Oh snap! I am all over that F&F sale! UD is my favorite brand, EVAR.

  12. Lindsay says:

    You’re way too creative

  13. Diana S. says:

    Urban Decay is my second favorite Make up brand (MAC first!)! Yipee on the discount! I want that new pinkish nude pocket rocket lip gloss they have so here is my chance to get it at a cheaper price!
    I like the wand on this mascara but I love my Rimmel Sexy curvesmascara the most!

    • Karen says:

      Ooh I trubs with that wand for some reason! I think I might be just terribly uncoordinated.

      What are your favorite Urban Decay products? I loooove Eden primer (this is a new thing) and the Heavy Metal Glitter liners.

      • Diana S. says:

        I love the eyeshadaow palettes (Book of shadows 1&2)! And my favorite is the Primer potion (the original) . I still haven’t tried the Eden primer but I hope to get it soon!

  14. Babybubblz says:

    So impressed with your haikus! Love it!

  15. Ginger says:

    Have you tried the Covergirl Lash Blast? If so, how does this MAC mascara compare? (I only have a couple of things MAC…I’m slowly becoming a convert 😉 Thanks for all the info and tips!! You rock! 🙂

  16. Arianne says:

    Hey Karen! This looks like a great all-around mascara. Maybe just what I’m looking for… speaking of which…

    I was hoping you could help me with my mascara search. I’m looking for a non-waterproof, curling, volumizing, and lengthening mascara. LOL, it sounds impossible, I know. I could forego the length, but I need the rest. The only mascaras that don’t uncurl my lashes are waterproof formulas, but I find them too harsh on my lashes to wear everyday. Any recommendations? Thanks in advance!

  17. Denny says:

    I am currently using this mascara and I SOOOOOO love this stuff too. From the first application, it was love at first swipe. lol

  18. Gabrielle says:

    I haven’t heard amazing things about MAC mascaras, but this does look good. It might be worth a try…love the haikus, as well! 🙂

  19. Audrey says:

    I’m so bummed that Eden UDPP isn’t available on the Urban Decay site! 🙁

  20. Oh wow! I am uber impressed, specially with that wee little price tag! MAC here I come!!

    Amazing mascara! Loved the hiku! What kind of camera do you use that is THAT in focus at THAT close. I must know…

  22. Trisha says:

    Love, love, love MAC Studio Fix!! A must have if you’re looking for a thickening mascara! Loved it the first time I applied! Doesn’t flake, yet comes off easy and makes your lashes look so full! The way I like it 🙂

  23. Aleksis says:

    This reminded me a lot of Bare Escentuals buxom lash but I was able to get way more volume from that one..I do however love pairing this with other thicker mascaras!

  24. kirsty says:

    I am impressed! 3 layers and no cakiness! I also love the natural look. It’s so easy to go overboard when you’ve been graced with long lashes. I may have to give this one a try 🙂

  25. irini says:

    i love your creativity 😀 may i ask if this mascara i waterproof?

  26. DallasBrownEyes says:

    I have been using this one every day since it came out a couple of months ago. I love it!!! I do have to work a bit to remove it, but the upside is that it stays put throughout long days (sometimes 14+ hours from the time I put it on to the time I wash it off!) Great product!

  27. mkdallas says:

    Thank God I got a glimpse of Tabs in this post…been jonesing for his royal hawtness for several days now! I just bought (of course) a new mascara but will def give this one a try. I hate clumpy, thickening mascaras, but it looks like this one does a great job of lengthening and defining with only one coat. I’ve hauled so much from all the spring collections lately that I’m trying to beat the UPS man to the door so my husband doesn’t see the packages. Have a great day and rub Tabs on his fuzzy head for me.

  28. Kim says:

    Love the Haiku, Karen! I’m very devoted to Lancome’s Hypnose. How do you think MAC’s compares? The price is sure right!

  29. lesley says:

    ZOMG this review makes me happy 🙂 both for the haiku and the fact that my sister (in LA) included this in a care package she is sending to me this week! now I really can’t wait to get my haaaaaaaands on it!! <3

    Salsa and Alex wave hello! Hope Tabs is stayin' fierce as per usual 😉

    Hi Karen,
    i was wondering if you recomend any good liquid foundation that dont look cakey
    that covers and won’t disappear at the end of the day. i was doing some searching myself and i found some good feedbacks on
    Dior skin forever extreme wear flawless makeup
    Shu Uemera face architect smooth fluid foundation
    Duwop foundation of youth and Shi Seido the makeup dual balancing foundation.
    But still not sure which one to try first.
    If you’ve tried any of these or heard anything positive please let me know.

    thanks =)

  31. Marisol says:

    I bought this mascara to replace my Dior Show when i ran out earlier this year and it’s really great. I really like what it does to my lashes. Will probably repurchase in the future.

  32. Jenny says:

    I was wondering if you liked this mascara or the waterproof estee lauder one you reviewed a few weeks ago. I have fairly oily lids and I would prefer something that didn’t budge. I’ve generally not had a good time with mascara because of the lids and I was wondering what you’d suggest (maybe something else?)

  33. Sugarenia says:

    I may be doing something wrong. Bought this the other day, but it’s so cakey!

    It just sticks my lashes together, especially on my right eye (don’t ask why, dunno :P)

    I love the price tag, but I have to be extra careful with it or else it looks all clumpy on my eyes.

    Also, when I try to remove it with Clinique Take the Day off it just smears the whole face with gooey grey stuff. Thankfully it just goes away thoroughly after rinsing.

  34. aishwarya gulati says:

    another winner by mac..though one coat does nothing for me,as i have very scanty lashes,two or three coats really build up the clumping what-so-ever.not my absolute favorite but a total steal for the price!

    OMG can’t wait to try!!!!!!!!!!!
