Revlon Bold Lacquer Mascara

Yes, I have yet another mascara review for you...I was pretty unhappy with my Miss Manga by Loreal so I decided to grab a different one to try before I even finished that one (something I rarely do). I've had pretty good luck with Revlon mascara in the past so I decided to try their Bold Lacquer one in the Grow Luscious line.

For starters, I'm a big fan of the packaging. The tube itself is really pretty and has a more expensive look to it, which is definitely not a bad thing.

This mascara is a lengthening and volumizing mascara that's lacquer film technology is supposed to coat your lashes with a deep, rich color. I got mine in 001 Blackest Black, which is the color I go for in any mascara that I buy. I don't really know what goes into this "lacquer formula" but I wouldn't say it's any more rich in color than any other Blackest Black mascara. It is a nice dark black, but I wouldn't say that's its selling point.

Revlon mascaras in my experience tend to have large brushes, as does this one. I like the shape of the brush, being slightly tapered toward the end making it easier to get into the corners. The size of the brush also makes it easy to coat almost all of your lashes in each application, which I really like.

Revlon calls this a "lash stretch brush", which again, I don't completely understand, but it's supposed to pull the "lengthening fibers" from root to tip to give a long and full lash. I can definitely tell that there are fibers in the formula that do help to achieve a longer lash, but at the same time, my lashes can tend to get clumpy especially if I'm really trying to get a lot of length.

Overall, I think the mascara does have a nice bold color and provides length & volume, but the downfall of it for me is that it flakes terribly. If I looked at my face 5 times during the day, I'd say that 4 of those times I have little black flakes under my eyes and for that reason I won't repurchase this.

Mascara is one of my favorite items of makeup to try out and to use so I'm considering getting myself one of the mascara collections Sephora brings out at the holidays. Have you guys tried these? What did you think about them if you have?

  1. Boo for flaking! Thanks for the review!


  2. Flakes are the worst, but this is a great honest review. At least it added length and volume, haha?

    1. Yeah, I mean it did deliver in regards to that, but you can't give length and volume and then have it flake all away! haha

  3. the flakiness just won't do! I'll definitely pass on this one! thanks for the review, Ivy!
