I am loving this MAC formulation and brush in this mascara, but not the packaging so much! After a week the top started to just crumble away. I thought maybe I was to hard on my purse when putting it down, and it turn breaking my makeup. I noticed non of my other makeup kept in my purse was broken though. Hmmm? So I stopped at MAC the other day and the girl working there said it’s happening to everyone, and to just return it. They are formulating new packaging for this product. I was happy to hear this because this mascara was working like a dream till it broke! So if you have this same problem, just return to MAC and pick up a new mascara in the mean time. I’ll keep everyone posted about when the newly packaged mascara arrives on the scene! Cheers.
