My Thoughts On The New Revlon Mascaras
Revlon as a beauty brand has in recent years not been my first port of call when it came to buying new make up. It is a well establish brand but for me it was really for the middle aged woman. It recently came to my attention while filling in a questionnaire that I had jumped a whole age bracket! It was only then I realized that I am that middle aged woman now!! It stills shocks me on how quick age can just creep up on you and before you know it your stepping into a whole new age bracket on some questionnaire form!. Lately though Revlon has really up their game by having the likes of Michelle Keegan and Youtube sensation Tanya Burr endorse their products to appeal to a more younger audience. I decided to I picked up the new Revlon Mascaras. There are five in the new range. Only two of them really spoked to me and that was the Revlon Ultimate All in one Mascara and the Revlon Volume + Length Magnifide. I really like the packaging on these mascaras I think Revlon really hit the spot with this. Their colour coded which gives them inviduallity. The brushes are all different too which adds to what each mascara can do.
Revlon Ultimate All In One Mascara (The RED One)
The first mascara Revlon Ultimate All In One Mascara says 5 benefits volume,length,definition,lift and intense colour. Revlon Power Mini Brush
Unique mini oval shape designed to reach every lash, Hollow core designed to deposit formula for mega lash impact is what Revlon boasts in their campaign.
After using this mascara I can confirm for me the smaller brush does deposit a lot of product onto the lashes and reaches even the most tiniest ones. Great for doing the lower lashes. So for me that is good, my only gripe, which is a shame, is that the mascara flakes. By midday I had flecks of dried mascara on my face. The formula is still wet, its not dried at all, which that is what happens when your mascara dries out. I was so disappointed because in all other areas its a great mascara, but dried flecks of mascara on your face just is not cool. Saying all this I am still using it, but making sure I check my face regularly for rogue mascara flakes!.
Revlon Volume + Length Magnified (The BLUE One)
High shine black fiber formula provides amplified volume and length, Revlon Magnifying Lash Brush Square brush designed to anchor formula to lashes for intense volume+ length, so boasts this mascara.
My view is a little different though. I was very keen on this one as for me Length is everything in a mascara. Sadly this did not lengthen my lashes noticeably but it did add volume and made my lashes look FAT. This is the weird bit, it didn’t flake like the other mascara. Obviously a different formula to the other one. So to keep using these both I have taken to putting the All In One on first then giving a coat of the Volume+Length over the top hey presto ‘No Flakes’. What can I say, I do not like waste!
So, I really wanted to love these mascaras, as the most of Revlons products are brilliant but these sadly are just lacking for me. I hope you found this review useful. Have you tried these mascaras yet? Did you have the same problem as me? Please let me know in the comments below.
