We have all been asked at some point "If you were stranded on a desert Island, what one item could you not live without"? For me? My mascara! And I know I am not alone here! When working with my brides to create their bridal make-up, I will always ask which feature they would most like to accentuate? 99.9% It's all about the eyes! As a make-up artist specialising in bridal hair and make-up, I go through a lot of waterproof mascara! I have tried them all! So when I heard that Revlon were launching a whole new line of mascaras later this month. I jumped at the chance to be given an exclusive to review them!
First impression? The packaging! I am a real fuss pot when it comes to packaging! I have an eye for detail, I love clean lines and minimalistic design. So first impressions were positive! I love the matt black and coloured gloss combination!
First up! Ultra Volume. When buying a mascara volume is always the first requirement for me. I was lucky enough to be blessed with length but I am slightly lacking in the volume department! Initial thoughts? Yes! I love the brush! I am bit old school (I can say that now I am in my Thirties)! I love a 'classic' mascara wand. I know, I know this sounds really odd but I am a perfectionist! I like to be able to comb the mascara through the eyelashes with minimal clumping! And this is exactly what I got when trying this mascara, beautiful volume with minimal clumping and minimal effort!
Next up! Volume+Length. Oh yes! Now we are talking! Again love the brush! But did it deliver? I had to add a couple more coats to even out the volume as it really did deliver lots of length! I could really feel the brush comb through the lashes which I loved! There is something really satisfying about being able to get to the roots of your lashes!
On to Super Length! Classic wand again so I'm loving this already! As I said previously, my first requirement when shopping for a new mascara is volume, so I wouldn't normally opt for lengthening. However after trying this I am really surprised at the results! It did add a small amount of volume which was great, however what really impressed me was the length it gave!
Dramatic Definition! When making a feature of the eyes the most important factor to consider is definition. Therefore enhancing what is naturally there. This mascara is perfect for the no make-up, make-up look! Definitely one for my gym bag for the times when you don't want to feel completely bare faced. Added benefit? This one is waterproof!
And here she is! The ULTIMATE ALL-IN-ONE! Looking at the brush I was immediately hesitant, it wasn't my 'classic' mascara wand! Oh no! This was the all singing, all dancing, All In-One wand! Boasting 5 benefits, Volume, length, definition, lift and intense colour it really is the ultimate mascara! After seeing the incredibly beautiful Michelle Keegan modelling this in recent campaigns currently circulating the internet, I put my hesitations aside. One coat and I had volume, length, definition, lift and intense colour! It wasn't quite enough, I wanted more! After my third coat I had to put it down! This is definitely the most addictive out of the whole line!
