Hi! Hi! Hi!
Here’s a fun post for today’s Blogmas! It’s a review of a new mascara from Revlon. Now, if you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know that I have a love affair with a lot of Maybelline mascaras; mainly because they’re so good and they’re extremely affordable. So what are my thoughts on this baby right here?
- Wand: I love how tiny the brush is. It’s so small that it can get every single bit of my lashes and I don’t have to worry about poking my eye out. In the picture below, I compare the size of the wand to Maybelline’s Push Up Drama wand.
- Packaging: The packaging is very unique, it’s basically flat. It makes it extremely easy to take anywhere and it doesn’t take up much room.
- Price: Surprisingly the price is pretty low. I found mine at Target for about $5.89 without tax. That’s definitely not bad for a mascara, especially when a lot of them seem to go for $7-$12.
- Formula: This formula is very troublesome, mainly because it does flake off throughout the day. Even when I take it off with my makeup removing cloths, it comes off in chunks/flakes.
- Longevity: I can wear this mascara for about 3-4 hours and after that, I notice flakes on my lower lash line. If you don’t mind the flakes, it does a decent job at holding a curl, but to me, the formula is a little too heavy to hold a curl.
I think it’s okay. It definitely isn’t the greatest formula, but I do love the size of the wand. It’s so small it easily fits my eye shape, and I don’t have the biggest eyes (I’m Asian okay), so the size of the wand makes it super easy to use. I don’t care at all for the flaking of this mascara, even when I layer it underneath another mascara, it still flakes off.
I do like the overall effect it gives because I’m able to give myself faux eyeliner because I can get really close to my lash line and it does an okay job at separating and volumnizing. Surprisingly the small bristles don’t clump my lashes together, and can actually separate my lashes, but again, the formula drags my lashes down.
If you don’t mind a lot of flaking than I think this would be an affordable mascara to check out. If the formula was better, I would definitely recommend it, especially for those who have smaller eyes. The wand is great to get to the very base of your lashes and push them up, but in my opinion, the formula is too wet to really hold a curl. Also, the flaky formula is not appealing.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post!
