MAC ZOOM LASH
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.
