Revlon very kindly sent me this mascara to review for you all.
What sets this product apart from other mascara’s apparently is the 2 in 1 brush which is supposed to build volume whilst seperating and defining your lashes. This retails at £8.99.
The vey first thing I noticed was how much product came out on the wand. It looked a little…gloopy…(click the picture to see close up).
The next thing I noticed as I started to apply it, was that I found the brush rather unweildly and big to use. I can’t really explain why, it just feels clumsy, but perhaps that’s me.
So how did it look? Here’s a before and two afters (one of which is lovely and cross eyed).
What do you think? Well I’ll tell you what I think. I think it adds volume, but perhaps a bit too much, due to the amount of product on the brush, lashes were a bit thicker than I’d like, but yes they were clearly defined and seperated. It’s not the perfect mascara for me, I suspect because I have a lot of thick lashes already but I can really see this working well for someone who has less lashes, or thinner lashes. It’s not that it doesn’t work for me, I will definitely keep using it, it’s just that I tend to not need volume, I tend to go for lengthening formulas. The other thing is the brush. I will practice some more and see if it gets any easier to use, but it just makes me feel clumsy and I’d like a little less product on the wand.
Oh! Another good thing about it is that it’s super pigmented, I have some mascara’s here that don’t pack the punch this does colour wise, so I do like that.
Generally speaking I would recommend this but perhaps not to anyone who already has thick, full lashes, but anyone looking for volume and definition? This could really work for you!
PS: Last night when Graham came in from work he thought I was wearing false lashes! It’s really a dramatic look.
