One of the worst mascaras I've ever used, this does not add volume, maybe some length. The formula is very wet and the wand is hard to work with, the ball on the end does nothing b/c it just gets filled up with product. Do not waste your money on this.
So far I don't have any issues with flaking or smudges. I don't tend to have oily lids or touch my eyes during the day, and I don't have sensitive eyes. I do wear contacts and glasses, so any mascara that flakes will show up. This gives light weight lift and equal volume with length. I have healthy lashes, and today I got some dramatic results from it. I used 2-3 coats and noticed it dries quickly, but it isn't as wet of a formula as I was told. It holds a decent curl and doesn't feel crunchy or spidery. The blackest black shade is dark enough, but not as sooty black as L'oreal carbon black mascaras. I'm going to purchase this again because my lashes feel so light and not weighed down by mascara. I cannot even remember a mascara that felt so light!
Wow, for a mascara meant for pumping up and thickening your lashes...it doesn't thicken my lashes. A mascara with 'volume' in the title and yet I get no volume! I just get average results.
As I mentioned above, no volume. Or if it does look thick, it's because my eyeliner is doing a great job of tricking one's eye to believe I have a fuller set of lashes. But this review isn't for eyeliner so....
Surprisingly, I did get a decent amount of length from this mascara. Not amazing lengthening results, but I'd definitely say this makes my lashes look longer than thicker.
It's been a month and the formula is still quite wet. I'm used to mascaras drying out a bit, which can be quite beneficial because majority of the time drier formulas make my lashes look much better. The wet formulas tend to clump easier. And I do believe this is happening here. It's not a clumpy mess but I see gaps. Not gaps from seperation, it's hard to explain but this makes my lashes look sparser than they really are. Not a cute look. This formula makes the lashes more glossy and slick rather than dry and 'crumbly' so that's a plus atleast.
As for color, I have the darkest shade of black. Probably my most positive aspect of this review, it's a very nice shade and does deepen my lashes wonderfully. No skimping on color here.
I paid about $10 for this. That seems kinda pricy to me, I could of saved a few bucks by going with Maybelline or L'Oreal, or spend $15 on my hg mascara, Clinique's High Impact. This is quite a regretful purchase. The packaging does interesting, it looks trendy or modern in it's own right but a bit bulky as well. The wand slightly reminds me of L'Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes which I *heart*, but didn't supply the same or similar results. So I do believe formula is the main reason this mascara is a fail for me.
This was my first Revlon mascara, and unfortunately it did not leave a good impression. Sorry Revlon!
I was hoping that since the brush is alot like chanel's inimitable that this would be similar and it is pretty close. I get lots of lashes and lots of thick long lashes. I just dont like how this flakes all over my face throughout the day.
Over all a good mascara. Looks natural, but definitely make the lashes look longer and fluffier.
I did not like this the first time I used it. I thought it just put on such a sheer coat and did not lenghten. I tried it again, and I went back and put a second coat on after finishing both eyes and it made such a difference. I have never been able to do that without all my lashes sticking together like spider legs. I have not so thick lashes and not so long lashes, and while I think this lengthens about as much as I have ever gotten with any other mascara, I like that it thickens them up without clumping. I do have to brush on about 10 strokes per eye to begin with, but that is what it takes no matter what mascara I use. If I have ever had a really thick mascara it clumps up unless I wipe almost all of it off in the container first. I don't have to do it with this, and it does not have fibers or tubes that come off to irritate my eyes like lash stiletto. If you have thick lashes to begin with it may not work as well, Maybe its just better on thin lashes and that's why some of the reviews haven't been as good.
I have yet to try a Revlon mascara that I liked and this one fell right into the category or Revlon epic fail mascaras for me. It did nothing positive for my lashes, but leave them stumpy, clumpy, drooping, and to add further insult flaked all day long. Seriously embarrassing and I even had a co-worker ask me what mascara I was using as she wanted to ensure she never purchased it. I have thrown this in the trash and if I could rate it zero I would.
At first I read all the negative reviews, so after my first application I thought I would throw it out, it was clumpy and the wand seemed cheap. However, I love it now! It reminds me of covergirl's lashblast (my HG). All you have to do is wipe a little excess mascara into the tub, but it gets all your lashes and even the tiny eyelashes in the corner of your eyes. It also does not give me spidery eyes, they look very thick and the formula doesn't flake (unlike the loreal mascara) and there's no scent like maybelline's mascara. Overall, I love it and will definitely repurchase !!!!!
I have become unbelievably picky with my choices of mascara through the last couple years. And I've been searching my HG mascara, beginning to lose hope. But then I saw Revlon's newest mascara, this 3D photoready whatever stuff, and the brush looked pretty good, so I went for it. And I'm so glad I did, because this stuff is amazing! I curl my lashes before applying it, and my lashes look super long, and very bold. Initially, I was hesitant with this. The brush resembled one similar of a Buxom mascara I recently had thrown away I hated it so much, and I also tend to avoid mascaras that have the word 'volume' in the title because I prefer long fluttery lashes (as opposed to thick, tar-like, clumpy, wet looking lashes!) But no, this stuff is just the right combination of bold, voluminous, and long! I've used this for a good three weeks but I'm sure I'll be repurchasing once it's time. I really do think I've found my HG mascara! And horrah for me that it's an affordable one at that ;)
This is a very dark black/blackest black color. It is a slightly wet mascara. Maybelline Falsies being most wet at a 5 to Maybelline Full N Soft being least wet as a 1, this is a 3. I use it to layer over my Maybelline Full N Soft because even though my Maybelline Full N Soft says Very Black, it's really just a blackened brown which is not nearly enough black for me. While Full N Soft provides a clump-free, fanned out, slightly thickened and lengthened base, Revlon Photoready 3D Volume is used as a couple of overcoats. It lengthens to near-eyebrow length, is minimally clumping (I always wipe the brush on the tube just so I have more control but it's not really clumpy either way), and its color does not fade to a grey-black.
I alternate between this and Maybelline Falsies as my overcoats because both work well for me, but I think the Revlon is an easier, less likely to "change" formula because it doesn't go from ridiculously wet and clumpy to manageable like my Falsies. It just stays manageable from newly opened to the 2 months I've had it so far.
My one major complaint is that it flakes on me a little because I build it up so much to a really long length. My Falsies flakes a little too but this will be absolutely fine with a lash primer (however I only use lash primer on special occasions). Even so these flakes are really negligible and it is going to be a staple mascara from now on.
My one minor complaint is that the tube is obese. Seriously. Nobody needs a tube this fat. I don't even have small hands but this is a lot of extra plastic for a mascara tube.
