Hey lovelies! It feels like all I ever do is review new Revolution Beauty products on this blog lately like literally I wish they’d sponsor me! Every time they bring out a new product I feel like I NEED to try it because they hardly ever disappoint so I was so excited to see they were finally bringing out a mascara and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it!
I popped into my local Superdrug a few days ago after work and was glad to see they already had the mascara in stock, considering it hasn’t been out for very long and my store is quite a small one I wasn’t expecting it. When I saw the price I was pretty shocked, you might think £8 for a mascara is nothing and it isn’t really but compared to the usual price of Revolution products I was expecting it to be around the £6 mark.
The packaging is standard Revolution at the minute, simple but still pretty in a gorgeous rose gold tube with ‘The Mascara Revolution’ on the front in black writing and the brand logo on the back. Apparently they’ve gone for simple packaging because the whole point of the mascara is ‘no gimmicks just real results’.
When I opened the mascara I was a little dubious about the wand as it seemed quite big compared to what I’m used to. Revolution claim ‘the hourglass shaped brush hugs the lash to create a natural curl’, so the wand is chunkier at both ends and then is a little thinner in the middle.
I thought the wand would be too big and I’d end up with mascara all over my eyelids and under eyes but I was SO wrong! I completely agree that the bristles of the wand hugged my lashes and it was actually really easy to apply with no mess at all!
I often find with drugstore mascaras they’re either lengthening or volumising but they usually struggle to do both which is why I sometimes wear more than one mascara but ‘The Mascara Revolution’ worked well at both lengthening my lashes and giving them volume!
I don’t naturally have very good lashes they’re quite short and stubby so I was really impressed with the results I got from this mascara!
Throughout the day I didn’t notice any visible changes with the mascara my lashes still looked just as good when I removed my makeup 12 hours later. Also this was really easy to remove compared to some mascaras I’ve tried recently (yes I’m looking at you Benefit Bad Gal Bang).
You can see what the finished result was below, honestly I didn’t expect this mascara to do such a good job and my lashes definitely looked better than they do from my usual drugstore mascara which is more expensive so I’ll definitely be using this more often!
Sorry this post hasn’t been very long but there’s not much you can say about a mascara! Will you be picking this up next time you’re shopping?
