black MAC mascara
mac-mascara.jpg

Lengthening, thickening, non-flaking, non-smudging… totally hard-wearing. Sassy and lush. Works on the catwalk, soups up the sidewalk. Tested and approved by Artists. Industrially packed; commodity-priced. Gives you attitude. A real hardworking mascara that is lush and luxe in its finish. Good to layer. Apply one coat of Pro Lash for enhanced, defined lashes. For more drama, build up the layers. To layer – apply, allow to dry, then apply again. Pro Lash works the hardest when applied right from the roots of the lashes to the tips. For volume, apply Pro Lash to the top side of the lashes first, and then to the under side. For a perfect groomed finish, comb the lashes through with the No. 204 Lash Brush.

Our program will help decongest clogged pores, smooth irregular texture, even out skin tone and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while restoring your radiance so makeup is truly an option.
