REVIEW: Revlon Photoready 3D Mascara!

I have been wanting to pick up this mascara for a little while now but I could never justify paying £10.99 for a drugstore mascara that I may end up disliking. So as soon as I saw Superdrug having a 2 for £10 on all revlon lip products, mascara and nail varnish I just had to get it. Firstly I normally go for black mascara but me being a dafty, didn't look at the colour so I ended up getting black/brown. I thought this was a complete disaster but it actually didn't turn out that bad. After I tried the mascara I realised that it wasn't too far away from completely black and that the slight brown tones gave my lashes a more summery look. 

My favourite thing about this mascara is definitely the applicator. I am a big fan of rubber bristles rather than the fibre ones as I personally think they coat my lashes better. As you can see by the picture above, there are a LOT of bristles on the wand which actually makes it easier to coat all your lashes at once. Also the bristles right on the end of the wand really help to separate and lengthen your lashes on the outer corner. The only slight flaw the wand has is that the mascara seems to clump a little bit at the bottom of the bristles (which is also shown in the picture). I didn't find this too much of a hassle as I just wiped it away before application.

The actual mascara its self is very good. It coats my lashes really well and adds a lot of length on to them which is brilliant!! It doesn't add as much volume as I hoped but you can't have it all. (The pictures above show my lashes with two coats of the mascara on). As for the packaging, I don't really have much to say about it. Its honestly just a standard drugstore packaging to me. 

Overall this mascara is very good and I'm glad I finally got a chance to try it. I would definitely buy this mascara again but I still don't think I would pay £10.99 for it. That is only because I love my maybelline ones just as much and they are cheaper.
