I am always on the look out for a mascara that gives my eyelashes volume, intense colour and length. Basically, my eyelashes need to feel like they about to take-off. The lovely folks from Revlon sent me a few make-up products to review. I received the following Revlon mascaras: Super Length, Volume and Length and the Ultimate All-In-One. Revlon replaced their old mascara collection. They new collection features an updated formula, a unique brush and colourful lid for each mascara, making it easy to recognise.
Revlon Super Length
I am crazy about this Revlon mascara. It is my favourite mascara for everyday use. If you’re looking for long lengthy lashes, then this is the perfect mascara for you. I have short lashes that needs volume and length. After one application of the Revlon Super Length mascara (as seen in the image above), it gives my lashes length. The formula is light and the mascara brush has tapered bristles, meaning no clumps (I mean, who likes clumpy lashes anyway?). The Revlon Super Length mascara glides onto your lashes easily and coats the small lashes too. If you looking for a natural or every day look, this is definitely the mascara for you. This mascara only delivers on length and doesn’t give your lashes volume. I have reviewed the Super Length mascara before, you can view the article here.
Tip: The Revlon mascara builds up quickly, so you only need 1-2 coats.
Revlon Volume and Length
I started using the Revlon Volume and Length about 2 months ago and I’ve grown to love it. This Revlon mascara is ideal for the lady who loves a dramatic look. It has a squared shaped brush that helps to give your lashes volume and length. After 2 applications, I had long feathery lashes with no clumbs. The mascara doesn’t add weight and is very easy to remove. The formula is a lot drier than the Revlon Super Length and Ultimate All-In-One mascara. This ensures that the application is a lot less messy. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve ended up with mascara around my eye area. I enjoyed wearing the Revlon Volume and Length mascara and would prefer wearing it to an event or at night when I want a more dramatic look.
Tip: Apply the two coats directly after each other, as the formula is dry.
Revlon Ultimate All-In-One
When I received my package and opened this mascara, I was skeptical of the brush. How could a small oval brush promise to deliver on volume, length, definition, lift and intense colour? Well dynamite comes in small packages! The center of the brush has a hollow core to collect more product. The Revlon Ultimate All-In-One mascara brush is easy to use and coats those tiny lashes with minimal effect. The brush is quite flexible making it easy to coat your top and bottom lashes.
Personally, I don’t fancy this mascara as much as the Revlon Super Length and Volume and Length. I had to apply the mascara so many times to achieve volume, length, definition and lift. It does deliver on intense colour but you have to apply the mascara at least 3 times to achieve the other desired results. My lashes looked the same when using the Revlon Volume and Length. Removing the mascara also took abit longer, I had to use 4-5 cotton pads to remove all the mascara from my eye lashes.
Tip: Be careful not to use too much product as it can thicken your lashes and end up looking “thorny”.
Revlon mascara formulas include conditioning ingredients such as Vitamin E and Revlon Ultimate All-In-One contains mango seed butter. Each Revlon mascara formula is available in Blackened Brown, Black and Blackest Black, and waterproof (except the Revlon Ultimate All-in-One). The mascara is available at most retail stores and pharmacies.
Remember its advisable to purchase a new mascara every 3 months and try not to store your mascara (or any make-up products) in the bathroom. Do not pump your mascara wand in and out of the tube to collect more product. This causes the product to break down quicker as air is being forced in the mascara.
My favourite Revlon mascara is still the Super Length, I enjoy using it everyday. Now I also enjoy using the Revlon Volume and Length mascara for a more dramatic look. Have you tried any of the Revlon mascaras yet? Which is your favourite?
Love and light,
