Revlon CustomEyes Mascara is a product I was keen to try out having heard the hype, sadly for me this really didn’t work out for me…read on to find out why.
The mascara’s point of interest is that you can adjust the wand to two positions, with position one giving you “length and drama” and position two giving you “length and definition”. Its clever, if you look really closely as you adjust the wand you can see little extra bristles poking out. I thought it was clever anyway.
The following two pictures are the two different settings in use. The first being “length and definition” and the second being “length and drama”. I have to be totally honest and say I couldn’t see much difference between the two and I also want you to notice the black specks under my lower lashes and in the corner of the eye. I’d only been wearing this mascara for 20 minutes at the time of taking these pictures.
For a better look at the differences:
I know they aren’t brilliant pictures but they give the general idea right? I really couldn’t see much difference between the two eyes although I did like the look of the mascara and thought it gave me a good seperated look, so I wasn’t sold on the gimmick of two looks, but I did like the overall way the mascara looked.
But think back to those black specks under my eye after 20 mins of wear and behold the same area after an hour and half of wear:
Do you see that? It’s flaking off all over the shop. On my upper lid, under my eye, down on to my cheek and out towards the bottom end of my eyebrow. Sadly, this just doesn’t have staying power for me.
So its not a great review from me for Revlon Customeyes mascara, I like the look it gives me but it doesn’t wear at all well on me and I can’t help but feel disappointed in the lack of difference between the two settings. I see I’m not the only one who has found that to be the case. Although I’ve not yet seen anyone having the same problems with the flaking that I’ve had so who knows whats going on there!
Revlon do fantastic make up and generally speaking I love the brand, but I’ve not got on with any of their mascara’s yet! Can’t have it all I suppose!
Have you tried this? Did you have better luck than me?
