I find that I am constantly jumping to new and different mascaras to find different results. I’ll love one, then find a new one and immediately forget about the old. Zoom Lash is a mascara I am sure I have used many times in the past, but when I tried out these mascaras today, I found my self thinking “WHY don’t I own and use this mascara all the time!?” Zoom Lash gave my lashes great length and curl. *edit* i said before that this separated my lashes nicely, but apparently I hadn’t slept or something. This mascara is supposed to make your lashes thick, my bad!

As for the colored aspect, I was actually surprised that I really liked both, especially the jade green. Generally I love the idea of colored mascara, but find its a bit difficult to pull off without looking out of place. I felt like the green actually enhanced my blue eyes, and since it isn’t a super bright green it’s able to be fun and different but not enough to cause people to turn heads- in a bad way. High Esteem, the mid-tone gray, worked as a softer black for me. Up close you can tell that it isn’t full-on black, but from farther away it just gives a bit of a softer look than full on black.


These are available for $14 each May 5th from Mac Cosmetics.

    They both look great and like a lot of fun, but I would have loved some pictures from further away…

      I agree! It’s a bit hard to see any color enhancing effect on the eye from so close.

    I love the grey one, it is much more wearable.

    I love the green one! Plus, it’s rare to have a coloured mascara that really… colours ^^

    Is it just me or do they look really clumpy? Perhaps Leesha was just applying them quickly, or they look a bit different from not so closely zoomed in… but I dunno, I feel a bit ambivalent. I don’t think I would buy them based on these pictures… though the colours are quite pretty…

    Hopefully Leesha will use them in a look and we can see them with eyeshadows, see how they go together.

      I was thinking the same thing. I was really surprised that she said she liked them

      I thought so too… surprised she said they separated the lashes when, from the pictures, you can count how many are stuck together in each clump…

      That’s what I though too. I though she was going to say she hated them. . .

      i was thinking the same thing, im soooo suprised she likes them because she usually hates spider lashes but thats how they’re looking to me.
      the green one especially looks clumpy.

    i agree with Skarlette they look really clumpy. I like the length and color but I’m definitely not into the clumpy look.

    I was looking to get my hands on one of each color, but I’m not sure I’d remember to wear them (I never remember mascara in the first place).

    its reveiws like this that loses validity for me, she said she hated clumpy lashes and that pic is definatly ugly clumpy lashes but he said she loved these. makes a person wonder about how honest she is about saying she dosnt get paid to do good reviews for crappy products.
