Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara Review

By Wednesday, January 27, 2016 , , , , , , , , ,

Hello Everyone,

Today I am reviewing Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara for you guys.

Product Description
Magnify and multiply the look of your lashes. PhotoReady 3D Mascara from Revlon creates bigger, bolder volume with a rounded lash-finding brush that coats every lash. Starting with one product and expanding to a prestigious cosmetic industry, Revlon has been providing customers with products that make women look and feel glamorous. Revlon is the #1 longwear brand at the forefront of trends and fashion across the globe.

Price: 7.19 USD

Packaging: It comes in a square shaped black and silver tube. I like that it has a nice base and can stand on its own.

Performance: The formula of this is neither too wet nor too dry. Kind of in the middle but it definitely gets drier over time. It has a big fat brush with bristles along the length of the wand. The bristles are quite hard on this wand. The wand is easier to work with on top lashes but not that easy with the bottom lashes one has to be really careful otherwise you will end up with mascara bits all over your under eye area. 
As far as volume is considered it doesn't live up to the product description.  It coats the lashes well in one sweep and gives you a nice defined looking lashes. Definitely lengthens your lashes but doesn’t provide much volume. I did two coats of these but it didn’t pack on the volume. My lashes looked long, defined and evenly coated but with third coat it started to clump and I could feel the heaviness of product on my lashes and I didn’t like the feeling. Apart from that it holds the curl nicely and doesn't smudge or leave you with panda eyes if your eyes get watery. You can easily get 7 plus hours of wear time with this and it doesn't irritate my eyes. I have the waterproof version so it is difficult to remove but nothing oil cleansers can’t handle.

The Good:

  • Nice Formula
  • Big fat brush
  • Definitely lengthens the lashes
  • Holds the curl better
  • Doesn't smudge 
  • Nice staying power
  • Waterproof
  • Doesn't irritate the eyes 

The Bad: 

  • Isn’t as volumizing as it claims.
  • It’s difficult to work with on lower lashes, wand is too thick.
  • Difficult to remove. Use an oil based cleanser or coconut oil also works great in removing it. 

Revlon PhotoReady 3D Mascara is a nice mascara but not a wow mascara which you have to have in your life kind. I prefer using it more on a daily bases. Just put on one or two coats of this to get nice defined longer looking lashes nothing fancy. If you are looking for a lengthening mascara then try it but if you are going for volumizing mascara there are better options available.

  2. @Swathi: It nice for daily use but if you want volume then this might not be that great.

  3. I wanted to try this out for a long time but I kept forgetting, I need both length & volume to my lashes actually..this may not be the best pick for me :(

  4. Lana R: I want both volume and length also. But this doesn't pack volume.

  5. This mascara sounds quite promising. Fantastic detailed review!
