Zao's Volume & Sheathing Mascara delivers intense colour and volume to your eyelashes. Formulated without synthetic preservatives and with high quality raw materials, this mascara reduces the risk of redness and irritation to your eyes. Suitable for regular use and sensitive eyes. Our mascara is now refillable to reduce waste.

Packaged in a unique, varnished bamboo case and attractively presented in a cotton pouch with drawstring, Zao makeup is both a beautiful gift and an item to treasure.

Instructions for use: Start with the upper lashes, holding the brush horizontally close to the root, move up in a zigzag motion while you are looking down. Concentrate on the ends to enlarge the eye and on the centre to open up the eyes. Gently tap the eye lashes when applying mascara to the lower lashes, ensuring that you don’t overload them.

Zao beauty tip: Mascara is the key item in your beauty kit, just a touch of mascara can work wonders! Some tips for a quick and easy beauty routine: before you put on mascara, always make sure your eyelashes are dry and free of cream or oil, then dust them with powder. This preparation will ensure your mascara won''t smudge and will last even longer. Open the mascara gently and in one movement! Avoid pumping to keep the product on the brush, but make sure that you haven’t overloaded it. If so, gently remove any excess with a tissue and not at the opening of the bottle. If you have a few drops of mascara on your skin after you’ve applied it, wait until it is dry, then gently wipe it off with a cotton swab. If you are already wearing foundation, you can also dab a little on the cotton swab before removing the mascara to ensure your complexion remains even.

    Mascara

    Posted by christina on 9th Oct 2019

    After many years using Dior mascara, every now and than dipping my toes into trying something new like benefit, supermarket brand etc. I have decided not to replace any make up which isn't organic. The researched started and I gave Zao a go, so far 2 weeks in I am happy, as with any new mascara a lot comes out at the beginning but I got the hang of it now and can honestly say I am happy I switched. So far I have put one on Christmas present list for my niece and recommended it to my sister in law.

    Zao Mascara

    This is such a lovely product and ticks all the boxes for ethics and design. I was so disappointed then by how it melts so easily and turns into panda eyes. If this issue could be worked on it would be the perfect mascara!

    Not so good quality

    Posted by Chloe on 4th Jul 2019

    I like how the mascara brush applies but the product itself is a bit too runny and easily flicks on to face and leaves too much residue around the top of the bottle. It also dries quite thick and clumpy. I love the packaging and will keep using to see if I just need to get used to a new mascara but at the moment I’m not sure if I’d buy it again.

    Smudgy

    Gives a soft curl and soft volume. Tends to smudge and not waterproof at all.

    Nice mascara, but not meeting expectations

    Posted by Bodine on 6th May 2018

    With Summer coming our way I ordered the dark brown mascara for a more subtle look. The smell of the product is very nice, but the consistency a bit watery which makes that I have to apply multiple layers to make the product visible on my lashes and doesn't create any volume. The name "Dark Brown" is also misleading as the colour is much lighter and closer to (light) brown or the "Cocoa" from the image than a true dark brown.
    Overall it isn't a bad mascara, with a little bit of work it comes close to the subtle look I am aiming for, but it definitely isn't meeting up to expectations.
