3. The wand may look tiny, but boy does it take your lashes to another level. As MAC says, it creates high-rise levels of volume, curl and length – sounds pretty wonderful, right? The moulded brush has a hollow centre to retain mascara, and at the same time the size of the brush means even the littlest of lashes will be coated in one single stroke of the wand.
