You know that question, “if you were stuck on an island and could only bring one makeup product, what would it be?” – my answer always would be mascara.
Mascara is the one thing I won’t leave the house without wearing. While I’ve never been someone who needs to wear a full face of makeup everyday, mascara is an essential and it gives me that boost I need to feel like myself while I’m out and about.
A few weeks ago, I saw that Revlon had a brand new line of mascara’s. I’ve always been a fan of drugstore mascaras for their cost (I mean, who doesn’t love a good deal?), but up until now I had not ever tried any Revlon mascaras!
While I wasn’t able to get my hands on all five mascaras, I was able to grab four of them.
After getting them home, I thought it would be fun to try each of these out – 4 days, 4 mascaras, and 4 reviews.

The packaging of this whole line is very simple, clean, and sleek. While the shiny coloured tops aren’t my favourite, I do think they are smart for helping people identify each mascara from one another.
I enjoy the matte black finish on the bottom of these mascara tubes, and like the font they chose for their mascara titles (yes, I am one of those people who even notices the fonts on beauty products!)
The cost for these mascaras is only $11.69, which is incredibly affordable. I hate spending a lot on mascara since they need to be replaced regularly, and I go through them so quickly, so the price tag on these mascara’s is a huge plus for me.
On the first day of my trial, I tried the Volume + Length Magnified Mascara. While I liked the end result of this mascara, I found the brush applicator to be too large.
The large brush made it difficult to be precise when applying the product, and it easily got onto my eyelid.
The end result was positive though, and my lashes did look much longer and thicker. There was also no issue with clumps, which is something that many find bothersome when applying mascara (but is actually something I don’t mind)
I had been quite excited to try this mascara since I love big dramatic lashes, so on the second day I excitedly opened the package and tried it out.
While I like the brush on this mascara, and how easy it was to apply, the actual formula didn’t make my lashes look defined or dramatic at all. Instead, they appeared more like a “MLBB” – my lash but better. It was the sort of mascara I would want to wear for a very light daytime look, rather than the dramatic lash look described by the mascara’s name. Like the first mascara, the Dramatic Definition Mascara didn’t clump at all.
On the third day of my mascara trial, I tried the All in One Mascara. This mascara is supposed to combine the effects of all the other mascara’s and give you super long, dramatic, thick lashes.
When I first opened up the tube, I thought that this mascara may be a miss for me too, as the applicator brush was so short. But, after applying the first few strokes, I was pleasantly surprised to find that this mascara really did do all it claimed. It made my lashes look longer, thicker, and more defined. This mascara is a winner in my books.
One thing to mention for all of you who hate mascara clumps: this mascara DOES clump, but with a few extra strokes you’re able to brush out any excess product.
The last day of the mascara trial was left to the Super Length Mascara, which by the name I thought would be something I loved. Sadly, out of all the mascara’s I tried – this one was the biggest flop for me.
The brush was larger than any of the other brushes, and it was clunky and difficult to apply the mascara. It easily got all over my eyelid, and only made a very subtle difference in my lashes.
OK – so I have two questions for you:
- If you were stuck on an island and could only bring one makeup product, what would it be?
- Which of these mascara’s most suits your lash needs?
