Makeup Revolution seems to be the darling of the beauty world right now; celebrating its first Birthday only last week, it has launched a mind-blowing 500 products already and its palettes are some of the most raved about products out there.
Today I’m featuring two of their mascaras and i’m keen to see if they can match higher end brands in terms of results and quality. Priced at just £2 I may be asking a lot, but I know Makeup Revolution delivers when it comes to their eyeshadow palettes so read on to find out if their mascaras stand up to scrutiny.
Amazing Curl Mascara in Black Brown (£2) – A lash-curling mascara from a certain high-end brand has been all over social media recently (I even reviewed it here) but this is Makeup Revolution’s take on it. This mascara boosts the curls whilst separating the lashes with a lightweight formula that promises not to weigh lashes down. The curved wand helps shape the lashes and coat them evenly. I enjoyed this mascara, the effect was quite subtle but it created lovely, girly lashes that lasted all day without flaking – the perfect pared down daytime look. £16.50 cheaper than its rival this is a definite keeper!
Amazing Volume Mascara in Ultra Black (£2) – This mascara adds volume with the help of tiny fibres, which stick to the eyelash, creating the appearance of thicker, longer lashes. With the thick brush that helps load the eyelashes Amazing Volume Mascara is ideal for people who want a fuller lash and is perfect for evening wear. Again this compares quite favourably to more expensive brands with similar formulations and is certainly impressive given the minute pricetag.
As you can see from my photo above the Amazing Volume Mascara does create greater impact, whilst the Amazing Curl Mascara is more gentle, but I like that they are so different and achieve two completely seperate looks. Rather than having to choose between two more expensive mascaras, at £2 each you can definitely afford to add not one but both of these to your makeup arsenal. Win!
You can purchase these mascaras online or at selected Superdrug stores.
