Revlon Ultimate All-In-One Mascara is a new, permanent high impact mascara that promises to add volume, length, definition, lift, and intense color to lashes. Revlon Ultimate All-In-One Mascara is one of those mascara that shocked me as I went into this purchase thinking hmmmm, it’s probably a one trick pony. Let’s face it most mascara formulas will either get you some great length or some great volume but rarely do you get one that are able to deliver both.
But Revlon Ultimate All-In-One Mascara might just be the exception to the rule.
Revlon Ultimate All-In-One Mascara comes housed in a rather slick flat packaging that will remind you of Hourglass Prodigy Lipgloss or even the Sephora Divergent Lipglosses. It has a short mini brush that looks like it was create for lower lashes versus your top ones. Revlon calls the brush a “power mini brush” and promises the unique oval shape makes for easy application as the hollow core design deposits the formula on each lash easily.
The smaller brush kinda had me scratching my head and I felt for sure this wouldn’t work out well at all as it was so tiny. The brush is about a quarter the size of a normal standard mascara applicator. Personally I didn’t think the brush would successfully work on my upper lashes but I did have a moment of, “Oh well at least it’ll work on my lower lashes!” But turns out I was wrong as the brush does indeed work great on both the lower and upper lash line.
This is a tube formula of sorts that’s quite wet and removes easily at the end of the day without smudging or flaking up during the wear. It isn’t a tube formula that’s dry and it isn’t one that makes you feel like you have a lash in your eye when you’re wearing it. However, as you remove it you’ll notice the little tubes break down easily and will look like little lashes on your cotton pad.
To use the smaller brush I wriggle it under my lash line and at the root and pull slowly forward. It adds incredible volume to my lashes so they appear quite fuller. The brush, although small, also adds a good deal of length. And yes, it also does a fab job adding inky blackness to my already dark lashes so it is quite dramatically intense and pigmented as promised.
I wouldn’t say it adds curl but it does lift lashes upwards and outwards so so far I’d say it’s batting a 5 out of 5 on its promise of adding length, volume, definition, lift, and pigment!
Now it can be tricky to use at first so I recommend curling lashes prior for the best results. I noticed I got the best results when I curled my lashes as the curler pulled my lashes upwards and made it easier for me to get at the root of my lash with the brush.
Yes, I was skeptical the very tiny brush head wouldn’t work for me because as I mentioned it looked more like a detail brush or a brush that would work on lower lashes. But it actually did a fabulous job lifting my lashes upward and out while adding a ton of volume to my lashes so they appeared fuller and longer. This actually quite reminds me of It Cosmetics Tight Line Mascara but it adds way MORE volume to my lashes.
Revlon delighted and surprised me with this formula. It was unexpected and I really didn’t think it would work but Revlon Ultimate All-In-One Mascara isn’t just another one tricky pony mascara. This one delivers on the 5 in 1 formula it promises to add length, fullness, lift, pigment, and defination to wimpy lashes so they look fuller, longer, lifted, and more defined.
