I purchased this mascara as part of Lorac Close Up: Real Life To Red Carpet Natural To Dramatic Face Tutorial kit.

You can check out my post to see what was in the kit. So far I have not reviewed anything. This will be my first review from this kit.
Product Review: Lorac Multiplex 3D Lashes in Black

Where to purchase: ULTA, Sephora, and online at
Price: $22 for 0.43 oz/ 12.3 g or the kit for $39

Made in USA

Description from the website: Take your lashes from 1-Dimensional to 3-Dimensional with LORAC Multiplex 3D Lashes. This buildable, smudge-resistant and multidimensional mascara contains Silk and Keratin, which help to nourish and condition your lashes. Celebrity Makeup Artist Carol Shaw created this mascara with a professional curved brush that easily grabs, lifts and curls for maximum coverage and length. Multiplex 3D Lashes is a volumizing mascara and thickening mascara that instantly delivers up to 3X the volume for a dramatic lash look. This is one of the best mascaras when creating that smokey eye makeup look!
Thoughts: To be honest, I heard nothing of this mascara. I actually bought the kit because of the eyeshadow palette. I thought the kit was a better deal than the eyeshadow palette by itself. For that reason, I went into this mascara knowing nothing of it. My first instinct is the packaging. I thought it looked like a high-class product. The shiny "LORAC" all about made it look fancy and expensive. The "LORAC" on the top is smooth, whereas, on the bottom you can feel it all around. I'm not too sure why it's like that and I have never noticed until now. :X
Here's a closer look at the wand. It's curvy with plastic bristles.

Now for how it looks on my lashes...
For a non-waterproof mascara, it did a decent job of holding my straight lashes.
Here's how my lashes look when it's coated with mascara.

Now for my overall opinion... When it comes to curve mascaras, it could be a hit or a miss. This actually is pretty decent. It's easy to use and it fits perfectly for my eye shape. I coat once on the nearest part of my eyes. If I coat more than once, it weighs my lashes down. There won't be a curve but it'll be a straight out. At the tip of my lashes, I coat twice to make it more volumize. You can coat more than twice if you like. I'm just use to two coats of mascara. The best part it actually holds my curls for a non-waterproof mascara! The downside of this product it actually smudges on my bottom lashes throughout the day. It doesn't smudge on my top lashes. If you're a person with no crease, I say pass on this product. I can see smudging. The description says it's a "thickening mascara that instantly delivers up to 3X." I definitely do not agree with the description. It volumize my lashes but definitely not up to 3X. I wouldn't even say it came close. For someone who's bless with full, thick lashes, I can see that. For myself including a lot of Asians, I do not see this happening unless you pile a lot of coats.

* High-class packaging.
* Curve wand; fits perfect for most eye shape.
* Holds curl.
* Slightly volumize the lashes.

* Expensive; better to get this in a kit.
* Smudges on bottom lashes.
* Do not suggest for non-crease individuals.
* Not the most volumizing mascara.

Would repurchase: No, it's kind of expensive for itself.
