MAC DAZZLE LASH
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 #7 LASH
DESCRIPTION: Long flirty false eyelashes.
COST: $14 USD $18 AUD
PERFECT FOR: Very flirty/glamorous eyes!
APPLY WITH: Eyelash glue (Duo Adhesive).
REVIEW: I purchased my #7 Lash from the MAC website. I chose #7 because the website said they were “Natural length” and “Everyday glamorous” and that’s what I was looking for.
The eyelashes are easy to apply, just put a little eyelash glue (I use Duo Adhesive) on the bottom of the lashes, wait for the glue to dry a little, then apply the lashes as close to your lash line as possible.
The #7’s look amazing in photos and would be perfect for a night out on the town. Unfortunately my eyes are tiny, so the #7’s are a tad too long for everyday use. If you have big eyes, you might be able to get away with wearing them for a daytime look.
When i’m braver, I might give them a trim so they look a bit more natural.
OVERALL: #7 lash are gorgeous! I just love how flirty they look. Unfortunately they are just a tad too long for my eyes and i’m not brave enough to trim them just yet. If they were just a litte shorter I could get away with wearing them as a daytime look.
