MAC Zoom Fast Black Lash Mascara

Hey everyone! How are you all? Todays post is on a mascara which I purchased recently and have quickly fallen in love with and that is MAC's Zoom Fast Black Lash mascara. Now I do love my mascaras and I really enjoying testing them all out. My lashes are one of my best features because they are super thick and really long and have quite a natural curl to them which makes applying mascara so much easier! But because I like them so much, I really like to get a mascara that does them justice.

Now I have been using Max Factors Masterpiece mascara for years! I just adore it and it really makes my eyelashes pop and even though I have bought and tried different mascaras, I always revert back to my faithful Max Factor one. However, using the same mascara for years can get a teeny tiny bit boring so one day I decided I would try a MAC one. Now I have heard totally different reviews on their mascaras, some saying that it is the best mascara ever and others completely slating them and saying they are MAC's worst products. So yeah, being a complete mascara junkie, I had to try one.

After spending ages online looking at all the different mascaras they have on offer (and they have loads more then I thought they did!) I settled on Zoom Fast Black Lash. Its just like the standard Zoom Fast but is a deeper black, something that I always look for when choosing a mascara. I like super dark lashes. When it arrived it looked really cute. Its a skinny, black tube and has MACs signature style all over it. It also felt quite heavy compared to drugstore mascaras I have tried in the past and the brush was quite skinny too, not something I am used to at all. I couldn't wait to try it out!

When I applied this mascara, it nearly completely coated my lashes after one swipe and the colour was a lovely deep black. The more I applied the darker it got and it really spaced my lashes out, made them look super long and thicker. It also made my bottom lashes really stand out which I think are just as important as the top. I just loved it straight away! The next test was to see whether it flaked off throughout the day or left any black smudges under my eyes. This is something that I cannot stand and does happen quite frequently with a lot of mascaras out there. But this one didn't, I wore this a whole day at work in the heat and it didn't smudge once and removing it that night wasn't an issue either. 

Now I don't know if all MAC mascaras would be like this or whether it is just this one in particular but I was really impressed. I have used it every day since I purchased it and I still love it as much, if not more since I first got it. Now it does cost £14 which some people may think is a little pricey for a mascara but when you find something you love, its got to be worth it right? I wish I had taken a photo of my lashes but its very difficult to take a photo of your own eye and it not be blurry or anything so I am really sorry about that! 

If you fancy trying out a MAC mascara then I would highly recommend it, I have been really impressed and will definitely repurchase this one or maybe even try out another, who knows! :). Have any of you guys tried MAC's mascaras before? What did you think?
