MAC Mascara Zoom Fast Review

Mascara Madness: MAC Zoom Fast Black Lash

Buying mascara can be harder than it looks; the way a product appears in an ad frequently bears no resemblance to the way it looks on lashes, and often there's no real "try before you buy." To save you from many unhappy returns, we guinea pigs at Sugar HQ have tried dozens of mascaras and are reporting our findings. Very serious stuff.

To kick off our series, we have MAC Zoom Fast Black Lash ($13). To see a close-up of how this mascara looks on real-girl lashes and get the pros and cons, just keep reading.

Pros:

  • The thin wand makes application easy.
  • Our tester found it great for daytime, since it defines the lashes without being too full.
  • Small brush bristles reach even the tiniest lashes.
  • Despite the formula's high pigmentation, removal is easy.

Cons:

  • "It's not for someone who wants a thick, full lash," said our tester.

Awesome idea for a series - can't wait for more! Also, would it be possible to do something like one eye with the mascara and one eye with no mascara - so we can compare more easily? (With the same eye makeup otherwise on both eyes.)

"Buying mascara can be harder than it looks; the way a product appears in an ad frequently bears no resemblance to the way it looks on lashes"... Truer words were never spoken! Substitute the word 'usually' for 'frequently' even.... ;)

I have this mascara and love it. I think it definately plumps them up (maybe it's because I put on two coats?)
