M.A.C Zoom Lash rrp £12.50
I got this is a goody bag from MAC. I have never really paid any notice to their mascaras, Mainly because not many people talk about them, and If they ever do, its not very positive.
Not putting it to waste, I gave it a trial. Generously applying two coats, the effects are as below...

As you may notice, it really builds up the lashes, transforming my thin wispy lashes into voluminous lengthened wispys. I LOVE the effect, but the love ends there....
After applying two coats, my lashes are starting to feel clumpy and weighed down. After about an hour of wear, my lashes completely loose its curl, therefore not so great for short straight lashes like mine.
I apply this at 7am in the morning and by 1pm lunchtime, I have smudgemarks along my lower lashline. If you work in humid places or is under alot of stress like me, even if you have oily skin then I would stay away from this, It will smudge/transfer! However I do LOVE the brush wand. It gets into every little corner without hassle.
Verdict: I do like this mascara, shame about the smudging, I don't enjoy looking into the mirror and seeing dark smudges around my eye. I will finish using this mascara, preferably only on my top lashes but I wont be running out to buy another one. I personally think for the price it is, there is much better and cheaper alternatives on the market.
Have you tried this?
