Beauty Test Drive: MAC Haute & Naughty Lash

I’ve become quite the mascara junkie in recent years. I will try anything that promises to both lengthen and thicken my eyelashes. MAC Haute & Naughty Lash gives lashes a natural definition and pack on the drama. How’s this possible? Well, it’s all in the brush … Let me explain: If you twist off only the pink part of the cap, then you get a brush that lengthens and slightly darkens your lashes so they look natural. But if you untwist the pink and purple cap together, then the brush magically packs on more mascara. The result is thicker, longer, and darker lashes. It’s almost the effect of falsies.

I like to define my lashes with the natural-style brush first. I let the mascara dry a bit because it’s quite slick. Then, I add a second coat with the more dramatic-style brush. It’s a high-impact look, but every lash is defined. I like the idea of a two-in-one mascara. But I appreciate noticeable, non-spider-looking lashes even more. Haute & Naughty Lash delivers both.
