I always put my mascaras to the test. I have the WORST allergies, no matter what time of year. So, when I received this mascara that claims to be tear-, humidity- and sweat-proof, I must say, I was intrigued.
Nicole Gordon Levine‘s Review: For me, Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lengthening Mascara didn’t flake or smear, and it certainly added length to my lashes. It did not make them look overly dramatic, so for daytime I like the look of this mascara. My lashes looked longer and I love the fact that it is tear-proof, humidity-proof and sweat-proof. For nighttime, I prefer Lancôme‘s Hypnôse Drama, Giorgio Armani‘s Eyes To Kill or Diorshow for that extra va-va-va voom they give my lashes. This mascara is truly a practical and affordable choice for daily wear, no doubt.
Revlon ColorStay Overtime Lengthening Mascara ($7.99) has a sleek, streamlined tube with a lean mascara brush. Perfect for long lashes. I have to admit, I’m tired of all the fat, 80’s-like mascara brushes. On me, the only thing they do is create more of a mess. I decided to have a Revlon test day and wore the Whipped Crème Makeup, Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain and ColorStay Overtime Lengthening Mascara the day I went to Ellis Island. Well, I can tell you this: it passed the test with flying colors. I usually go to another well-known brand for mascara, but I think this is going to be my new go-to.
My eyes were watering; I was rubbing, laughing and on a ferry in intense heat. This mascara lasted ALL DAY. And might I add, it was as black at the end of the day as it was when I first put it on! If you have trouble like I do with mascara, go get this product! I will caution you though: When you first apply it it is a wet mascara, so be careful not to get it on your lid. It has potential to be messy, but as long as you use a card to apply it with, you should be fine.
Some of the other benefits of this mascara include :
– Water resistant
– Long, intensely dark lashes
– 24-hour wear
– No flakes, smears, or smudges
– Tear-, humidity- and sweat-proof
