The one magnificence product I can’t stay with out is mascara. However even I — who has tried nearly each volumizing, lengthening, tubing, and waterproof system on the market — needed to take a minute to wrap my head across the thought of a mascara-dry shampoo hybrid product. MAC Lash Dry Shampoo Mascara Refresher is meant to deliver quantity again to hours-old mascara, the identical method you’d use a dry shampoo to refresh your hair. But additionally, huh? I definitely wasn’t about to blast a dry shampoo into my eyes (don’t attempt that at house!). Seems, although, MAC Lash Dry Shampoo Mascara Refresher isn’t a powdery spray in any respect.
At first look, it resembles a typical black mascara. However once I began to make use of it, I rapidly realized it has a considerably oily system that’s noticeably slicker than mascara, including nonsticky quantity with a black tint. So when you had used your traditional mascara that morning, and your lashes began to dry out by the afternoon, this intelligent system can revive them.
As a substitute of the standard fluffy mascara wand, this product has a small, versatile comb that helps detangle lashes, so your morning mascara gained’t look clumpy below a contemporary coat of Lash Dry Shampoo. You may anticipate lashes that turn out to be dry, flaky, and shorter by the afternoon to look refreshed once more — lengthy, shiny, shiny — nearly such as you first utilized your make-up for the day.
After I received some clarification of the idea, it made plenty of sense: While you need to reapply your make-up noon, or earlier than an evening out, it’s simple so as to add somewhat additional concealer, a swipe of black eyeliner, some bronzer. Getting your lashes as fluttery as while you utilized mascara eight hours earlier than, nonetheless, is sort of inconceivable, until you have got a bottle of micellar water close by to start out contemporary. Layering new mascara over clumpy mascara is a recipe for, properly, extra clumps.
It took greater than two years for MAC to develop Lash Dry Shampoo as a result of it was so completely different from creating a regular mascara. “We had to make sure that it carried out the best way we supposed over mascara,” says Jamie Lynch, government director of product growth at MAC. “It was necessary to make it possible for the system combed by means of [easily], refreshed the mascara that was already on the lashes, and revived the look of the lash.”
