Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara (Review & Photos)

Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara

In all of my years using makeup, I don’t think I’ve EVER used a Revlon mascara. How can that be??

I was recently sent this Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara by Influenster to try out, so now I’m finally getting a chance to try out this mainstay drugstore brand’s lash offerings!

Influenster, for those unaware, is a web site where anyone can sign up to receive free product to try out. You can sign up here if you’re interested.

The Revlon mascaras all come in a flattened out tube package which actually makes it really easy to twist the lid off because your fingers catch on the edges. I was sent the Mega Multiplier Mascara in the shade Blackened Brown… which… kind of disappointed me at first as I’m not especially into brown mascaras. However, I swear you would never think this mascara shade was anything other than black!

The Mega Multiplier Mascara features a conical wand (my favourite kind!) and promises to give you an oversized lash look. The product itself contains tiny fibers to help amp up your lashes. It’s also a tubing formula which will help decrease flaking.

On my lashes, I found it did a really nice job of separating them, but I would’t say the volume was extreme. The fibers do actually lengthen my lashes, which was a nice surprise since I don’t usually find fibers do much other than bulk up my roots. That being said, the fibers are quite small, which makes it easy to manage/apply to your lashes so you won’t be getting an overly intense clumped up look.

The formula is neither super wet, nor super dry. It’s that happy medium that I think a lot of people will enjoy. I found the formula was nice overall, but with a name like Mega Multiplier I just automatically assumed I’d get more bang out of my lashes. I’m normally a one coat mascara kind of person (usually because I feel like mascaras get too clumpy if I add more than one layer), but I found the Mega Multiplier layered really, REALLY nicely. Possibly the best I’ve ever tried before! Even if I let one coat FULLY dry and then added another, my lashes still looked gorgeous and not spidery or clumpy.

Since this is a tubing mascara, I found it came off extremely easily with warm water. In fact, it actually struggled to come off with an oil based remover! So don’t fret with an oily remover – just stick to warm water and you’ll see how easily this mascara swipes away! That may concern you (as it did me), since you’d figure that would mean any kind of water would make the mascara melt. Not so! I experienced very minute flaking (like… maybe one flake a day) and no smudging whatsoever.

Let me know if you’ve tried out any Revlon mascaras before and what your favourites are!

Even though I had picked it up aaaages ago at IMATS New York, I hadn’t yet had the opportunity to play with my Mehron Fire palette. The look came out pretty nicely, but they were HUGELY benefited by a white, sticky base.

What’s On My Face – Volume 45

As I was putting together this roundup of looks, I started to realize just how much I’ve been using my Makeup Geek shadows lately. I mean, I use them a lot on a regular basis, but three out of the five looks are solely Makeup Geek in here!


Viseart Editorial Brights makeup look

I did this for a YouTube video tutorial but had to repost it here because I know not everyone has the time for videos (I’ll continue to repost my video tutorial looks on the blog as time goes on).

What’s On My Face – Volume 44

Alright, it’s been a while since I’ve done a roundup of looks. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a lot of pizzazz in my looks throughout December as I felt like I was eternally rushing around, so this roundup is going to include my actual New Year’s look, some guest posts and a suuuuper old look from June I still hadn’t posted yet. Enjoy!


201601_womf44_look1.1

So here’s what I actually wore on New Year’s Eve. We didn’t have extravagant plans (we ended up going to an arcade), but I wanted to at least have a splash of glitter on! I ended up applying false lashes later on, but didn’t get around to reshooting the pictures, so what you’re looking at is sans falsies. This look does use the Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette, but I promise there’s a full Challenge Week coming up focusing on that palette soon!

201601_womf44_look1.2

Eyes
(Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons palette)

  1. Pecan Praline through the crease.
  2. Cafe Au Lait on the lid.
  3. Bordeaux on the outer half of the lid.
  4. Divinity on the brow bone.

I applied Make Up For Ever Glitters in 13 to my lower lash line using some Too Faced Glitter Glue. I created the wing with Kat Von D‘s Tattoo Liner in Trooper and applied Make Up For Ever Smoky Stretch mascara to my lashes.

201601_womf44_look2.1

This look was completely focused on featuring Too Faced’s Melted Villain lipstick. Although it’s a dark purple, I have to admit that it mostly comes out looking black on me. that’s okay though! I love the colour and it’s NOT patchy! (And yes, I did wear this exact look to work that day!)

I looooved this look! I did this as a guest post for Up The Rollercoaster last month and just adored how the shots came out. I wasn’t sure how the cranberry tones in the shadows would work with a red lip and if I’m honest, I think it’s a LITTLE bit off, but the overall effect is WA-BAM!

Another guest post!¬†(This time for Writing Whimsy.) I really love doing guest posts because it gives me an opportunity to be totally creative. Usually I’ll take a Saturday afternoon and spend a couple hours working on one. This is very different from my usual makeup¬†roundups which are done almost exclusively¬†as my daily work makeup (which doesn’t always afford me the luxury of playing around with glitter since I’m usually in a rush!).

Eyes

After priming my eyelids, I applied NYX‘s Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil in Black Bean all over the lid and blended out the edges. Then:

  1. I deepened my almost non-existent crease (thanks hooded lids) with¬†MAC‘s Cork.
  2. I covered the entire lid with Urban Decay‘s Blackout, making sure to blend it into Cork.
  3. I then patted on Lit Cosmetics’ glitter in Disco Diva¬†using their glitter adhesive.
  4. MAC‘s Blanc Type is on the brow bone to even everything out.
  5. On the inner corner, I blended together Naked Cosmetics IV-05 and IV-03 and patted it on.

I created the inner corner point with Kat Von D‘s Tattoo Liner in Trooper, ¬†thinly lining my upper lash line with it as well. I tightlined my water lines with Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon in Blacquer and applied essence get big! lashes waterproof mascara to my lashes. I lined my lower lash line Lit Cosmetics Peacock glitter.

Alright this one’s just super old. I had toyed with doing a Challenge Week for Laura Mercier‘s Artist palette, but I never got around to finishing it (likely something new and exciting caught my eye!). I did this look sometime in June of 2015.
