Just How Well Does MAC Dazzle Lash Do Lashes?

Published in: MAC Makeup, Product Reviews

mac dazzle lash review

I awoke this morning to a dazzling development! No, not my birthday; I saw that coming from miles/weeks away. This dazzling development was a tube of MAC Dazzle Lash resting on my nightstand. I set it there before bed last night so I’d see it first thing this morning.



To remind myself to tell you about it first thing this morning. 🙂

MAC Dazzle Lash isn’t new, but I don’t think I’ve mentioned it before. It’s one of the many MAC mascaras in the company’s permanent collection. With a velvety, non-clumping formula that adds subtle thickness and lash length, it’s designed to deliver a seemingly natural lash look with extreme curl hold.

And that it does. Two or three coats is like BAM! — but not BAM! like Fergie or Lady Gaga lashes; more like BAM! — the lashes I wish I’d been born with. They hold their curl all day long and glow with mad glossy shine. My fringe feels wonderfully light and soft.

I’m guessing the shine has to do with copernicia cerifera, aka carnauba palm wax.

RANDOM FUN FACT: Carnauba is also the main ingredient in surfboard wax.

Nekkid lashes!

Dazzle Lash’s small brush head captures and coats individual lashes, but I think it feels a little awkward in my hands. I find it also leaves a little excess product on my lids (not a plus), and the product itself tends to smudge along my lash line as the day wears on (no flakes, though).

I like Dazzle Lash, but it doesn’t make me drool. I can see myself reaching for it when curl hold takes precedence over length, separation and volume. Ladies who prefer lifelike lashes with spectacular curl hold might just fall in love. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B

You might like MAC Dazzle Lash if…

  • You love to curl your lashes
  • You want a natural look
  • You’re not too concerned about lash length or volume

    Happy Birthday Beauty Queen! Hope your day is grande!
    I wonder about this wax in the mascara and if it will give me racoon eyes? I have very oily eyes, and I never put mascara on my bottom lashes, but I end up looking like a racoon anyways. LOL
    Also, does it curl your lashes or just hold one you put there yourself?

    Happy birthday, Karen! Hope you have a wonderful day! 😀

      I didn’t really care for Dazzlelash. It wasn’t really impressive, and I hated that it smudged on me, and I don’t even have especially oily eyes. I much prefer MAC Pro Lash for daytime.

    You rarely hear about MAC’s mascaras, mostly because they seem to be well known for shadow and lip products. Still, this looked pretty awesome on you. Too bad it smudges a stuff.

    Dazzlelash is the only MAC mascara I’ve bought and used a whole tube of! I liked it pretty well, but mascara in general doesn’t like to stay on my lashes, and I found Dazzlelash ended up under my eyes at the end of long days. I wish MAC made waterproof versions of some of their mascaras, instead of just having a single waterproof model!
