Revlon ColorStay OverTime Mascara Review

The first thing I want to say is that mascaras are different on everyone. Each person has different lashes, so this mascara make work wonders for me and not you. Or it may work like crap to me and amazingly on you. So please keep that in mind with this review. :)

This mascara is one of Revlon's newer ones. I saw this on a shelf of new products and since I was buying my coveted 3D PhotoReady, I picked this up.  The color I have it in is black. I typically only buy black mascaras, its just a preference. This one is a lengthening mascara, meaning it will help your lashes look longer. Now me personally, I don't need a lengthening mascara, I just wanted to try it, I mean why not. It never hurts to have a little extra length!

This mascara is one of the longer tubes that I have. For some people that could be a good thing. Honestly, its a bit hard to work with. The brush itself its normal, its not big and its not small so that is very nice. This mascara is supposed to be a 24 hour mascara and claims that it will not smudge,  flake or smear.

The wand itself it a typical mascara want. Its the fiber bristles. I don't have any preference towards the actual brush, so this one doesn't bother me at all. I actually like the size of it because it grabs all of the lashes nicely.

So its not too bad. You can kind of see the length of the wand, even though not really. As you can tell the formula of this mascara is dry. That is not a bad thing, some people like dry mascaras and some like wet ones. This one doesn't bother me.

My biggest ish with this mascara is that it does NOT hold a curl at all. I curl my lashes fiercely, but once I apply this, they fall. Not even curling them after the mascara drys (which you should not do), it still does not hold a curl. It makes my lashes look long and amazing, but there is just no curl at all. My other problem with this is that before it dries it transfers if you are not careful. Heck even when you are careful it transfers! It gotten it on my eye shadow, under my eyebrow, my lower lashes have transferred. Its really annoying honestly.

Don't take me the wrong way, this mascara is absolutely wonderful, but for my eye lashes it falls short. I really do want to love this mascara, but I just can't.  It doesn't smudge or flake once it dries, but until it dries keep and eye on your peepers just incase you get some transfer.

You can purchase this anywhere you can buy Revlon products. (Drugstores, Walmart, Target, Ulta, etc) It retails for around $6.79, but that also depends on where you live. Prices vary. Also remember they can vary from store to store.

Have you tried this mascara? Are you planning on trying it? I would love to know!

  1. There is a difference with and without the mascara, but the fact it doesn't hold a curl is a factor. I'm newly in love with Falsies, it holds curl and makes my lashes looks so much better. I hate wearing make-up and I can throw it on, add lipstick and look respectable.

  2. Thank you for reading!
    I tried the Falsies when it first came out and I was not too thrilled with it. Maybe the formulation has changed since it first came out, because I've been wanting to try it again! I'm glad that it holds a curl, that might make it easier for me to buy it! Haha. Oh I do the same thing! :p
