You may have heard that Revlon have kicked off 2016 with a huge overhaul of their mascara collection. They're discontinuing all their existing mascaras and introducing five new ones, each with colour-coded packaging to represent their individual benefits, whether that be volume, length or definition. But if you're anything like me you'll want it all, which is where their new 'hero' mascara, the Ultimate All-in-One, comes into play.
This mascara was designed as a one-stop shop for volume, length, definition, lift and intense colour. I'm lucky enough to have very short, straight lashes (grrr!), so it's hard to find a product that emphasises them well, but I've been really enjoying Revlon's latest offering. While I don't particularly notice an increase in length, it does add volume and thickness to my lashes while giving them a lift. The formula is thick, glossy and blacker than black which gives heaps of definition, and it's easy to build without going clumpy. It does flake a little after I first apply it, but I don't find this to be a problem as it stays put throughout the rest of the day.
But the most notable thing about this mascara has to be the new brush. It's a tiny oval shape, about the length of a fingernail, which makes it ideal for using on the lower lashes and getting right into the roots of the upper lashes. It also has a hollow core which acts as a reservoir, retaining the formula in the centre of the brush so you don't have to dip the wand back into the tube so frequently. It really does work and it helps save time during the early morning rush when every second counts!
The other mascaras in the new Revlon range include Ultra Volume (pink), Super Length (green), Volume + Length Magnified (blue), and Dramatic Definition (purple), and they're available to buy from 20 January priced at £9.99 each.
