Revlon Volume+Length Magnified Mascara: Review

Revlon launched a new range of mascara recently and I picked the one for Lengthening + volume. There are 5 different mascara for different needs:

  • Revlon Ultimate All-In-One Mascara.
  • Revlon Ultra Volume Mascara.
  • Revlon Super Length Mascara.
  • Revlon Volume + Length Magnified Mascara.
  • Revlon Dramatic Definition Mascara

They all vary in their brush shape and size. I am reviewing the  Volume+Length Magnified mascara here.

(Pssst, if you are into colored mascaras, I have reviewed a gorgeous bright blue mascara HERE)

 

• High shine black fiber formula provides amplified volume and length
• Revlon Magnifying Lash Brush™ – Square brush designed to anchor formula to lashes for intense volume + length

Price: Rs 1050

Revlon Volume+Length Magnified Mascara review

This range of mascara come in attractive packaging with different cap colors and brush for different effects. I donot like Revlon products’ packaging but this mascara has modernized the brand. The colour coded caps are a great idea to quickly identify the formula if you have multiple mascara from this range. Volume+Length Magnified mascara comes in sleek, flat, matte black packaging with dark blue cap. The white font is contrasting and looks attractive, which doesnot fade after multiple handling of the tube. The packaging is simple and classy. The brush has short as well as long bristles, which does a good job and makes the application easy. The brush coats the lashes richly and evenly. The brush is dense and the texture is fibrous which provides length. I need 2 coats for full effect. One coat is sufficient for subtle look.

I am a big fan of lush, voluminous lashes and this mascara gives fabulous lashes. Although this mascara doesnot give dramatic lashes, which is not its job anyway. This is a normal daily wear mascara which does its job of brightening up the eyes, adding length and volume decently.

It does not flake, is not irritating to eyes, is waterproof. Since this is a waterproof mascara, it makes the removal process quite tedious.

Now the downside of this mascara is that it is pricey! There are other cheaper mascara available in India to do the same decent job this mascara does. Also, this is a new launch and it is available only on counters and not online, as far as I know, but you can try this on Amazon.

Overall, Revlon Volume + Length Magnified mascara does its job of volumizing and lengthening decently. This is a great mascara for daily use when you dont want dramatic effect. However, this is on the pricey side and there are cheap alternatives available in market for the same effect. Also, this is waterproof and removing this mascara is a chore in itself.

Revlon Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamel: Bold Sangria ~ Swatch & Review

revlon-colorstay-nailpolish

This year has gone by so fast, don’t you think? It’s november already! The evenings have started to get chilly and the sun has hidden under the thick smog (Seriously Delhi, where do you want to go with the pollution levels?!) While the winter is about to make its entry in this part of the world, I thought of reviewing my fav nail polish for winter. Spring is about colors and vividness, Fall is all about dark colors. Revlon Colorstay LongWear Nail Enamel in shade Bold Sangria is one perfect Fall color.

 

Price: Rs 350 for 11.7 ml

 

Revlon Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamel in shade Bold Sangria is a beautiful eggplant purple nail polish which flatters  my medium skin toned hands. I don’t like wearing black nail polish and this is such a beautiful alternative to wear dark, gothic colors. The color is dark eggplant purple but it also appears bit brownish in some lighting.

Revlon Colorstay Nail Enamels come in a sturdy cylindrical bottle with shade name sticked on top. What impressed me most apart from the color is the brush of this nail polish. The double-barrel brush is wide with tapered corners, making nailpolish application a dream. The entire nail gets covered in two strokes. I absolutely hate thin brushes and the brush of this nail polish is amazing. The unique shape of the brush allows hassle free and quick application.

The formula of this nailpolish is creamy, it is neither too runny nor too thick. Color consistency is great and gives full coverage in 2 coats. The finish is super shiny and it looks high end on the nails. I saw minor tip wear starting next day onwards, but this happens with almost ALL the nailpolish I own (As seen in pics below).  I would call it pretty long lasting if applied with a top coat.

One thing to note is that this is NOT quick drying and it will take its fair share of time to dry. So better apply it when you are not in a hurry. I applied it at night and even after giving it full time to dry, ended up with crease marks in morning.

Revlon Colorstay Nail Enamel in shade Bold Sangria is a beautiful eggplant purple color. The consistency is creamy and highly glossy. The brush of this nailpolish is unique and makes the application hassle free. Only drawback is this is not quick drying. But the color is so gorgeous that it has become my fav Fall color. If you like dark, gothic nail colors, do give this one a try.
