If this mascara does not work for you, it's because you're not using it right!
I use this mascara over my Maybelline "lash stiletto" and my eye lashes have never looked better! I put on 2 coats of the LS and while it's still wet I use Mac's Zoom Lash. I apply it by holding the brush and blinking my eyes onto the brush. I get zero clumps and I get a lot of compliments on my eyelashes!
I have the small size of this product, I got it in the MAC's Christmas set, but once it's gone, I'll definitely buy the full size!
Terrible.. So not worth the money! Clumps and the formula is quite wet so it doesn't hold any curl. Do not buy!
Ok so I agree with all the reviews saying this mascara CAN be difficult to work with. I sleep on my stomach and end up face down a lot of the time so when I wake up I often have smooshed up, bent eyelashes that are all over the shop. So for this I like that Zoom is a very wet mascara.
It wets all my lashes so that they go back to where they are supposed to be. It takes a bit of mucking around to get the mascara looking smooth and groomed but the result is worth the work. My days at work are usually 12-13 hours long and it lasts all day without flaking. Then it comes of easily in warm water. All the reviews saying that L'Oreal and Maybeline or Lancome make better and cheaper mascara? I couldn't comment on that because I refuse to use these brands as they are tested on animals. Gross. Paying $10 more to not burn animals? I'm for that.
any drugstore mascara is better than mac's zoomlash..
I usually adore MAC products. Who doesnít? But this mascara really didnít do it for me. The packaging is pretty simple and it looks quite professional so I like the packaging. The color is really nice - I have it in Plush Black and itís a really dramatic dark black. But, I was quite disappointed with the actual product. Itís wet and Ďgloopyí. I applied the first coat of mascara and it definitely did thicken and lengthen my lashes. It was quite clumpy but nothing I couldnít fix. Then I applied a second coat andÖ Wow. It was really clumpy! After brushing through it a million times with a disposable mascara wand, it looked okay but nothing too great. I applied it in the morning and wore it all day. I was tired when I got in at night and washed my face but didnít bother washing off my mascara (I know, I know, but I was really tired). When I woke up the next morning, I looked in the mirror and was amazed. It looked exactly as it did when I put it on - long, thick and super black! This mascara isnít in my favorites but Iím not going to throw it out as itís okay if I use just one coat. It also looks quite nice if you apply two coats of a different mascara and then apply one coat of this MAC mascara! Overall, I wouldn't buy this again.
This was a huge disappointment. This mascara is uninteresting . The brush is very basic very drug store brand basic. The formula is very very difficult to remove. I used make up remover before i went to bed and when i washed my face that morning I had mascara all over my under eye area. I tried wearing the mascara a few days later and the same thing happened. It's very annoying. On the flip side of things , Zoom lash did make my lashes look fuller and darker, but i could get the same result from a many other brands.
This is a inexpensive mascara which may lead some people to want to try it. AT 15 dollars you are paying close to drugstore money. Well in this case you get what you pay for. The mascara dries out really quick. It doesn't lengthen and add fullness to your lashes like most mascaras do. Plus it is very clumpy. I know I didn't get a "bad" one out of the batch because I bought two of them. It gets hard to twist the top all the way, so the mascara dries quicly. I actually liked how the brush looked which was why I bought 2 in the first place, and with the bargain prices at MAC, I figured I couldn't lose, but I did. I still keep one of them (I don't even know why) around. These were my feelings about the mascara!
This made my eyelashes look amazing when the makeup artist did it for prom, but i simply find it impossible to get the same effect =(. plus, it has a wet consistency and easily gets into the eyes. will not repurchase.
Why all the negative reviews? I have been using this mascara every day for a month now. After 1 coat, my lashes are thicker, longer, and beautiful! This mascara definitely gives the "fake" lashes look, but it doesn't over do it! I love this mascara and will keep repurchasing!
I am really glad I got this in a swap and didn't buy from the MAC counter. It is too heavy and can clump too. I would only use this if I wanted to create a really dramatic effect as in theatre/stage-dramatic. but I can't see that happening anytime soon. There are many better (and cheaper) mascara's out there. Luckily I didn't have to hang on to this for too long thanks to a MUA'er who desperately wanted to get her hands on this in a swap. Certainly not a re-purchase for me!
