I never had the chance to own the original Extended Play mascara, but I’m currently the proud owner of the latest edition—the Extended Play Gigablack Lash mascara—and I’m glad. Because I think it ROCKS! What makes this “Gigablack” are the intense carbon black pigments that give just the right amount of color to my otherwise nearly invisible lashes. It helps them stand out, with just the perfect amount of glossy black color.

Its petite little brush makes it possible for me to reach every last lash, for clean definition, separation, and plenty of curl. And get this—my lashes stay put as promised…up to 16 hours per MAC. And it’s true! I even worked out in this (which I would normally never do), and my lashes were still pushed-up. While not waterproof, I didn’t experience any smudges luckily, and zero flakes. Whew!
Extended Play Gigablack Lash lends more of a “natural” look to the lashes, so you’re not going to achieve insane drama with it. If that’s more your speed, this new mascara likely won’t be for you. But if you like natural-looking thickness that enhances your lashes with some curl, give this a try.

Before & after…
This won’t give you crazy, va-va-voom drama lashes, but I LOVE it for curling, lift, definition, and keeping lashes in place all day! I feel like I can reach every single lash with the tiny Gigablack Lash brush.
