MAC DAZZLE LASH (BLACK DAZZLE) REVIEW

MAC DAZZLE LASH

BLACK DAZZLE

DESCRIPTION: Lengthening mascara.

COST: $14 USD $30 AUD

PERFECT FOR: Natural looking lashes. Slight lengthening.

APPLY WITH: Inbuilt thin medium sized mascara wand.

REVIEW: I purchased my Dazzle Lash off the MAC website. Dazzle Lash comes in two colors: Star Brunette and Black Dazzle. I chose Black Dazzle because I like black mascaras.

Dazzle Lash (DL) was a bit of an impulse purchase. Usually I read many reviews of a product before I purchase it, but with DL I did the stupid thing and just added it to my cart. After purchasing DL, I read some bad reviews and wished I didn’t purchase it. I tried emailing MAC, but they told me they can’t change the order and I would have to send it back once I received it. When I received my DL, I just decided to try it because I was too lazy to sent it back.

The packaging of this mascara isn’t matte black like other MAC products. The lid is really rough/sparkly and the base is smooth/shiny with a tiny amount of sparkle. The sparkles on the lid doesn’t mean the mascara is going to be sparkly, it’s just the packaging.

The DL has a thin medium sized mascara wand. Because I have small eyes, I find medium mascara wands are the easiest to maneuver around my eyes.

I applied a couple of coats of DL and found it dried pretty quickly. The consistency was nice and thin.

I found DL to lengthen my lashes slightly, but did absolutely nothing in terms of curling and thickening. It just made my lashes look a tiny bit longer but natural.


OVERALL: DL is great if you want your lashes slightly lengthened and to look natural. Unfortunately, I was after a mascara that would deliver thicker, longer, more dramatic lashes and DL certainly did not do that. Don’t waste your money on this, you can find better mascaras at your local drug store that deliver the same results and are a lot cheaper.

MAC EYE BROW CRAYON (LINGERING) REVIEW

December 2, 2010 § Leave a comment

MAC EYE BROW CRAYON

LINGERING


DESCRIPTION: Pen like eye brow crayon that defines and fills in eye brows.

COST: $15 USD $30 AUD

PERFECT FOR: Those wanting to fill eyebrows in a natural or dramatic way.

APPLY WITH: The eye brow crayon is kind of just like a pen. To sharpen the crayon, just wind the end.

REVIEW: I bought MAC Eye Brow crayon in Lingering at the MAC counter inside Myer, Sydney. I choose the color Lingering because I wanted a dark brown color, not black.

I’ve always had trouble finding a good dark brown eye brow pencil. It was one thing trying to find an eye brow pencil that was not black, and it was another thing trying to find one that gave a natural finish. This eye brow pencil is a perfect dark brown color and fills in so naturally. You can also build it up if you want a dramatic effect.

The eye brow crayon and the tip are the perfect size to work around the eye brows with. I use a light hand and find that delivers a more natural result.

 


OVERALL: I LOVE THIS CRAYON! I love the way it makes my eye brows more polished, but natural and the shade Lingering is such a perfect shade match. This is definitely my HG of eye brow crayons/pencils and I would definitely recommend to everyone!

MAC ZOOM LASH REVIEW (ZOOMBLACK)

MAC ZOOM LASH

ZOOMBLACK


DESCRIPTION: Instant volume, lengthening, long wearing and curling mascara.

COST: $14 USD $30 AUD

PERFECT FOR: Those wanting thicker and longer lashes. People who like medium sized mascara wands.

APPLY WITH: Inbuilt medium sized mascara wand.

BACKGROUND: My HG would have to be Dior Show mascara and Chanel Inimitable mascara. I also like Maybelline Great Lash mascara.

REVIEW: I purchased my Zoom Lash (ZL) off the MAC website. ZL comes in two colors: Zoomblack and Lofty Brown. I chose Zoomblack because I prefer black mascaras.

The ZL comes in a matte black tube and the consistency of the mascara is gel like. The wand is a medium size with a tapered end, which I find is the perfect size to manoeuvre around my small asianish eyes. Because the ZL is quite wet, my lashes take a while to dry.

I’ve had my ZL for about 2 months now and have found the product has dried out a little bit. I don’t necessarily see this as too much of a bad thing because the product is quite wet.

I found ZL certainly does make my lashes thicker/longer and last all day. I have not had any clumping issues with this mascara.

The only problem I have with the ZL is that product builds up around the base of the lid. Therefore, I am constantly wiping the tube because if I don’t it ends up all over my hands and make up bag.

OVERALL: I like the way this mascara looks on my lashes and I think the ZL delivers above average results. I do believe though, there are certainly other mascaras out there that can deliver the same, if not better results for a much cheaper price. The downfall to this mascara is that it can get quite messy.

Personally I would not classify this as a HG because my lashes didn’t turn out as dramatic as I would’ve liked, but I would certainly purchase again.
