Our newest mascara designed for voluptuous night-sky volume, length like a glamorous, never-ending asphalt highway! Day or night, sweep it on…a second coat before twilight will make the evening all the more exciting. It’s intense. Fast. And blacker than black. Zoom! Deeply dark drama. Same as Zoom Lash, but with carbon black pigment. Saturates lashes with the richest black ever. Creamy, velvety formula builds density and conditions. Feels supple, light, flexible. Ultra-sculpted brush embraces and separates each lash, hugging every curve.
Price : Rs 850
MAC Zoom Fast Black Lash Mascara is the first MAC mascara I have tried. I comes in an matte black tube, classic MAC packaging. The mascara wand doesn’t have very dense bristles like typical voluminous mascara nor does it have the thin spiky bristles like lengthening mascaras, it is a cross between the two. What I do not like is that it picks up a tad too much product and since the formula is runny, it ends up clumping the lashes. I generally need to dab a tissue on the wand to remove the excess product before application for clump free results.
Even though it clumps, what I love about it is the dramatic length it gives! Almost everyone I meet has asked me if I’m wearing false lashes whenever I have worn this mascara! It gives a bit of volume and curl as well. If you curl your lashes before application, it holds up that curl pretty well the entire day. The result is black, long, curled lashes that give a lovely wide-eyed, open look to the eyes which stays all day. Even though the formula is not waterproof, it doesn’t smudge or run but if you are someone who is prone to oiliness or sweat in the eye area, I would suggest you skip this one! You can go for the Zoom Waterfast Lash mascara instead. It doesn’t feel heavy on the lashes, it did not irritate my eyes in any way and is safe for contact lens wearers as well.
Removing it is a bit of an issue, my Maybelline eye makeup remover does not remove it completely and when I wash my eyes after using the remover, a bit of black does run out. The best way to remove it is to let the remover soaked cotton pad sit on the eyes for a minute and then wipe if off. Follow it up with a rinse of warm water to remover any residue.
Overall, this mascara is a mixed bag. It gives great results as far as curl and length goes but the brush picks up too much product and it is not waterproof. A little extra work of removing the excess product but the results are quite worth it even though a mascara worth Rs 850 should not need extra work to make it work!
If you apply the mascara without removing the excess product, this is how it looks :
The GOOD about MAC Zoom Fast Black Lash Mascara :
- Coats lashes fully, dries fast
- Simple, classy packaging
- Gives incredible length
- Holds curl all day
- Gives volume
- Blackest black shade
- Does not run/smear/smudge during the course of the day even in humid weather (unless you have very oily eye area)
The NOT-SO-GOOD about MAC Zoom Fast Black Lash Mascara :
- Wand picks up excess product, results in clumping
- Not waterproof
- Needs a bit of work to remove
MAC Zoom Fast Black Lash Mascara is a water-resistant black mascara that gives incredible length to the lashes while adding volume and holding curl well. It is hands down the best lengthening mascara I’ve tried however, the formula is runny, the wand picks up excess which results in clumps. With a bit of work, it can give great results that stay all day long but I wish it did not the extra effort!
