Holy grail mascara!

After the last mascara review that I posted I swore to myself that I would never write another, mainly because to be honest, as much as I love it, I find mascara a pretty dull subject to write about.
     This morning however a little black package was delivered and here I am tapping away, fickle as ever ;)

What's the bad boy in question?

MAC Zoom lash 

I love MAC (I even have a MAC song and dance, don't judge me) I would go as far as to say it is my all time favourite cosmetic brand, so it's strange that I have never owned or wanted to own one of their mascara's I usually see them in store think 'meh' and head off to the lipsticks.
When I received this 1.4ml sample with an online order I was intrigued and quite excited to give it a go.

When it comes to new mascara I usually brace myself for disappointment, in my experience 90% of the time proceedings unfold like this...
 "Ooh new mascara gonna have me some sexyyy lashes tonight"
...20 mins later sobbing in the bathroom removing the clumps and starting my whole eye make-up from scratch.
So over the years the thrill of getting a new mascara has worn off somewhat.

One coat 

Zoom lash is something else! From the second the brush hit my lashes I could swear I had an out of body experience, heard angels sing, fireworks went off, the whole shebang! The wand gripped my lashes with brute force and held on to the very end leaving them volumised curled and separated. I was actually blown away by it hence (and sorry for) the overly dramatic post! 

9 hours later my lashes feel exactly as they did upon initial application, still perfectly curled and there hasn't been so much as a hint of flaking or smudging.
Needless to say I am going to have to purchase the full size as soon as possible *goes to check price* £13.50 It's actually only a pound more than my old faithful Loreal Telescopic, happy days :) 

What is your Holy grail mascara? Have you tried Zoom lash or any of the other MAC mascara's?

    @Becca haha It's rare that a product excites me so much on first impressions so Im glad that came across lol :)


  7. I haven't really tried any high-end mascara's before, but if I did, it would be a MAC one for sure.

    My holy-grail mascara is Maybelline The Falsies. Curls, volumises, lengthens, everything I want it to do.

  8. @What Larry Loves Thank you so much :)

    @Funkiichiicka Funnily enough Ive never tried the falsies mascara, I have always meant to though people rave about it :)
