Revlon Volume & Length Magnified Mascara

Hi everyone! It's honestly so nice to be writing posts a bit more frequently again, I had a little photography spree this morning so there are lots more posts set up for this month, and a week tomorrow I will be done with exams and can have my life back again! I'm reviewing the new Revlon mascara today, I actually got this in my Glossybox, you were allowed to choose the type of wand you got a while back and I chose the Volume & Length wand. There is four other choices which are Ultimate All-In-One, Ultra Volume, Super Length and Dramatic Definition. I just figured I want volume and length so I will try that one out and see how it goes. I've actually been on the hunt for good drugstore mascaras as it actually pains me making an expensive repurchase just for a mascara, not going to lie though, I miss my Benefit They're Real so much however saving is more important right now! 


There is also different colours you can choose for these, I have mine in the shade blackest black, but you can also get waterproof black and a shade called blackened brown. When it comes to mascara I always want it as dark as you can have it really, I have pretty black eyelashes anyway so it would be pointless in getting a lighter shade. I actually really like the packaging on this, it's quite plain but I just think it looks very nice, and it's not too chunky so it won't take up loads of room in your makeup bag. 


The website claims that this mascara has a high fiber shine formula and a unique square brush that anchors the formula to lashes. I'm a bit funny with these types of brushes, typically I have always preferred by my mascaras when they have the plastic wand rather than the bristles so I didn't know what to make of this one. Also the picture doesn't do the wand justice I think this wand is is really big which you can't really tell. 

To be honest I haven't had the best experience with this mascara, it isn't clumpy or anything like that, I just found that it didn't really do much to my eyelashes. This was used with an eyelash curler as well because my lashes are so straight but it just didn't make them look that much different, if anything my eyelashes looked a little bit darker and more defined but that was it unfortunately. I think that the mascara itself is just too natural for me, some people might really like this but I prefer it a lot darker and a bit more full on, that's just my personal preference. Also the wand didn't really give me any volume, just a bit more length so sadly I am not too impressed by this product. I wish I had chosen the Ultimate All-In-One mascara when I picked my Glossybox because the wand for that one looks more like something I would use. At £9.99 as well these aren't the cheapest drugstore mascaras out there, I would try this if you like quite natural lashes but unfortunately it wasn't for me so I will be sticking to my all time favourite Lash Sensational! Let me know in the comments if you've tried this and what you think!

  2. Yep, I have the same experience as you, it gave a bit of length without any volume and my lashes are stick straight with it. A complete waste of money.

  4. It is so hard to find a mascara that gives both length & volume! I feel your pain. And drugstore mascaras are not cheap. I'm currently using Urban Decay's Perversion. I love it.

  5. I'm so bad with mascaras I always stick to the same ones over and over like Benefit's they're real. I find a lot of mascaras are hit and miss and are just either super hyped or don't really do anything! Loved your review I know not to look into this one really now anyway! xx

  7. I haven't heard the greatest thing about this mascara. I love a mascara that adds volume. Sorry to hear this didn't work out for you. Great review.

  8. With the old Revlon mascaras I had a similar problem, the wand was massive and it didn't seem to do much! However I do like natural-looking lashes so this might be a good fit for me, the Maybelline Colossal volume is my favorite!

  9. Such a fab post, I always find mascara reviews so hard to write but this is great :) Mascara is such a personal thing isn't it, I tried the Lash sensational one but it didn't seem to give me the definition and fluttery-ness that I like. I'm trying out the L'oreal telescopic at the minute and it has amazing length and volume but is a bit on the clumpy side - which I don't actually mind for some looks! Wow, just realised I've written an essay, sorry about that :) xx

  10. I've heard a lot of mixed reviews about the Revlon mascaras, I don't understand why there are so many of them!? All you want is one to do all of those jobs surely? I'm sorry you didn't get on with this mascara!

  13. If I'm going to wear a mascara it's got to be voluminous as well as lengthening it can't just do nothing for my lashes and look natural-I feel that's pointless!

  14. I've never tried this one. My fav is the perversion mascara by UD. It's more on the expensive side but so worth it! ☺

  15. Everytime I buy a new mascara all I think is "Try something new Erin" and everytime I end up wishing I had bought Lash Sensational lol. My ultimate is Too Faced Better Than Sex. But its so expensive lol.

  16. I tried the red version of this mascara and found it quite good to be honest. Nothing beats Benefit They're Real but for the price of this Revlon one I can't really complain x

  17. When these came out i got the red one and bought this one for my friend! Oh how i regretted that decision. This one was my favourite! I find this worked really well with my eyelashes! I think the brush on the red one is too small!

  18. I had my eye on this mascara so it's disappointing to find out it's just blah! I don't understand why they even make average mascaras!

    Surprised it doesn't work as well! It must be the formula!
