MAC zoom fast black lash mascara review

MAC mascaras don't have the best reputation, so when I was given this in my goody bag, I didn't have high expectations, however, after trying it out, I was pleasantly surprised:

(Top- MAC zoom fast, Bottom- Bloom full and flirty mascara)

What I like most about MAC zoom fast is the size and shape of the brush. Big brushes are great for volume, but it's hard to apply mascara to the corners of my eye, and near impossible for the bottom lash line. However, because this brush is thinner at the end, it was really easy to coat both my corner and bottom eyelashes without smudging or clumping.

The formula is on the thick side, so clings really well to my lashes, and a few swipes is enough to darken and lengthen them. There is a little bit of clumping, but it can be removed by running the brush through my lashes.

One coat is enough for a daytime look, but because my natural lashes aren't very good, I like to apply another coat in order to add a little volume and extra length.

I'm not keen on is the smell of the mascara, as it reminds me of the cheap ones I used to buy when as teenager, however, smell aside, I'm really impressed with this mascara and it definitely makes it onto my list of products that I'd repurchase.

Have you tried any of the MAC mascaras? What's your favourite mascara for gorgeous lashes?

  1. I'm testing my Rimmel Lash Accelerator these days, I'm not quite impressed with it, but it's alright. Will post a review soon.

    Chanel inimitable is my favourite by far! x
