Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara

It's been a hot minute since anything new from Revlon jumped into my routine, but Influenster has changed that with their most recent campaign. If you haven't noticed already, the Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara is in the hands of most bloggers because of it. I'm not one to turn my nose up at a new mascara (you never know when your next HG product may pop up) so I've been testing it out. Is it worth a trip to the drugstore though? Read on to find out...

The short answer... I guess? Clearly, we need to chat the pros and cons, but the short answer is that I didn't quite get all the wow I expected from the Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara. With claims of "unique formula of fibers and 360 tubes..." "...delivers an oversized lash look that turns heads" and "plump and extend lashes flake-free, smudge-proof wear" it sounds like a mascara that ticks most of my boxes. Unfortunately, it fell a smidge short.

It's not without its charms though. I quite like the brush, with its tapered shape and standard wire-style bristles. It's the perfect size- not huge or too teeny- and makes quick work of grabbing and coating each lash. The formula was true it its flake/smudge free formula, and removal was super simple with a bit of micellar.

Where this mascara fell short were the main areas- it didn't give me much volume and what length it gave was negated by the drooping effect (I need my curl to hold, puh-lease). I know what you're thinking "The after photo doesn't look that bad..." True, it doesn't. Thing is, I used three (maybe four...) coats of mascara AND gave my lashes a lift post mascara application with a heated lash curler. The droop-age was just too sad to look at. I tend to like fibre-infused mascara formulas because I am lash greedy and want all the volume, but this seemed to fall short in that department. I don't really like having to use so many coats to get volume.

So, I can say I likely won't be repurchasing this mascara again. It's decent, but just doesn't give me everything I need and I know there are other drugstore options that do. Have you tried this mascara? What do you think? Need it in your beauty routine?
