MAC Zoom Fast Black Lash Mascara Review & FOTD!

I’ve always been pretty funny when it comes to mascara – I can’t seem to ever find one that I like and that gives me exactly what I want.  I’ve been using my favourite – The Body Shop’s Super Volume Mascara for the past year, but since receiving this in September I haven’t stopped using it!


I’ve only ever tried one other MAC mascara and I wasn’t that impressed (Fibre Rich Lash Mascara), it just didn’t do much for my lashes, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised with this product and would recommend it to my friends and to you guys!



The wand is nothing special, reminds me of Rimmel’s Extra Super Lash wand, kind of cone shaped but it gives me exactly what I want with my lashes!





One coat is good but I think you definitely need a second just to lengthen more and to help separate the lashes – they can sometimes look slightly clumpy after one coat.  Gives you a great dramatic black colour though, perfect for night and day.



Love, love!  How lovely does it make my barely-existent lashes look!   Perfection in a tube I say.  A second coat really combs through the lashes to help separate as well as adding extra length and volume.


This mascara does the trick of volumizing the lashes & darkening them but without leaving them looking too false or clumpy.  I hate mascara’s that are too subtle as much as I hate mascaras that are too obvious, and I find that this sits perfectly between the two, giving me gorgeous long lashes with my day-to-day smokey eye look.  A bit pricey at around £12.50 but I think its worth it!

A quick FOTD with me wearing the mascara!

    Wow your lashes look amazing!! I've always steered clear of MAC mascaras as they don't seem to have very good reviews but this looks fab! I may have to try it when my current tube runs out.

    My favourite mascara (so far!) has to be YSL Singulier I think as it's such a great all-rounder. Like you, I have trouble finding mascaras that give me the lashes I crave but this is the closest I've come to achieving that. This MAC one looks worth me trying though, I love the intensity of the colour xx

    i love the l'oreal extra collagen one but my current fave is the maybelline lash accelerator, it took a while to get used to but it really separates and extremely lengthens. i always get told how long my lashes are and the wand is easy to control so if you just want a cats eye outer lash look its dead easy as is a full coverage one.

    if its on offer you should deffo try it out

    Wow! I LOVE long eyelases, especially when false lashes are not used! I think I will have to take a tour to MAC to purchase one of these!!! 🙂

    I currently use two different mascaras – L'Oreal's Volume Million Lashes and Maybelline Colossal Volum' Express. These make my lashes gorgeous and long and they don't look clumpy either!
