Revlon Colorstay Overtime Lengthening Mascara Review

Revlon Colorstay Overtime Lengthening Mascara is a newly launched mascara from Revlon for Summer 2012. This one promises a formula that will create longer lashes that won’t flake, smear, or smudge.

Let’s take a look!

I honestly don’t find Revlon Colorstay Overtime Lengthening Mascara all that incredible. I rarely have issues with flaking, smearing, or smudging so maybe that’s why I’m missing the appeal of a formula that promises to last 24 hours.

According to Revlon this is tear proof, sweat proof, and humidity proof…! I’ve worn it 12 hours straight and it seems to hold up great but…like I said I don’t really have a ton of issues with mascara flaking or smudging.

The formula is a inky black with a lightweight feel that doesn’t dry down to a stiff, crunchy finish. The brush is a straight, bristled brush that does create a good deal of length but not a ton of volume. It kinda gives my lashes a straighter, longer look even when curling my lashes prior to application.

At $5.99, it’s not too bad a deal if you want to test it out for yourself. I personally didn’t think it was all that amazing but perhaps if you have issues with smudging, flaking, etc…it might prove a worthy purchase. I got some nice length from it but I didn’t get terribly excited about it overall.

Available now at drugstores.

Tried it?

Would love to hear your thoughts!

    • the Muse

      I’m sorry Carla I don’t understand your question…indicate?

      • Carla Cristina Santos

        Any other mascara to recommend… Sorry, my bad (that’s what you get when you are thinking in portuguese and writing in English… HAHAHAH)

    I do have a problem with smearing mascara (it’s terrible!). It doesn’t smear on me, or otherwise migrate. It’s not a star formula, but it does what it says on the tube, so I can go out with non blonde lashes!

    • the Muse

      the wear is excellent jane..! I agree! Even proves difficult to remove sometimes but it really doesn’t do a ton else 🙁 no longer lashes, not a ton of volume just blah

    Hey, coming here from MUA. If you don’t have issues with mascaras smudging, flaking or smearing, do you have any suggestions to find reviews that account for those of us who do? I’ve had one mascara that didn’t end up smudged under my eye or in my contacts; problem was that it looked lousy and felt uncomfortable. I’m trying to find reviews for someone who *can’t* wear everything mascara, let lone most of them. Spent too much money at the derm and ophthalmologist to go back to bad stuff. Andy suggestions are appreciated!

      hi trish, I don’t really have any suggestions for a blog who reviewed this and “can’t” wear mascara that doesn’t smudge, I will say that the formula seemed to last long and proved a little difficult to remove, that’s a good sign…! mac extended play is also looking good at the moment, my sister has oily eyes and she’s loving it, says it lasts on her all day.

      if anything, hopefully someone will comment with a similiar comment and help you out!

    This product was horrible! It clumped and left a weird residue on my lashes. I’m staying with Covergirl Lash Blast Volume. Plus my local drugstore will not take back used beauty products so where am I supposed to return it for a refund? The Revlon site has not contacted me back in over 2 weeks!

  • Sandy

    This stuff is horrible. Does not apply very well, seems “dried up”. Going to return for sure!!!

  • Sharon

    Can’t find Colorstay Duel Phase Eye & lip makeup Remover anywhere. Help.
