This month the team at Influenster Canada sent me a new mascara to test out! Does the Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara live up to its claims?

Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara Claims

Revlon promises to plump and extend your lashes with their new Multiplier Mascara. Other claims include:

  • flake-free
  • smudge proof
  • the brush spreads mascara from lash to tip
  • water resistant
  • removed easily with warm water

Before I even put this on my lashes I had my doubts on the last point. I have a water-resistant mascara from Lancome which I love, but getting it off, even with their eye makeup remover is a bit tricky. However, when a mascara is smooth, not flaky and glides on smooth, I get excited. So I crossed my fingers and hoped this Multiplier Mascara would live up to its claims.


The Result of my Test

The good news, it is not the worst mascara I have ever tried. It was flake-free even in the evening after I got home from work. So I will give them the smudge proof and flake free claims. I tested the blackest black colour, and this mascara is also available in black, brown and plum brown.

Packaging and Brush Needs Work

Excessive Plastic Body

I am not a fan of the packaging or the brush. First, the plastic body of the mascara is lightweight, but it is flatter and wider than a mascara needs to be. As a traveller, I find it bulky, compared to other mascaras I would usually use. Bulk packaging means a heavier product that takes up more room in my makeup bag. I’ve already weighed my makeup bag and know how quickly the items in it add up in weight in my post: A Look at the Weight of our Makeup: Travel Tips for Women.


The Brush

The brush is long and wider at the top and narrows down into a tip. It made application of the mascara awkward. I did not find the mascara applied evenly from root to tip as they claimed. I also found some lashes clumped together and didn’t feel they were plumper or longer than my current go-to mascara by Lancome.

Comparing Lancome Mascara to Revlon Mega Multiplier

Comparing Revlon with Lancome

My current mascara is Lancome’s Hypnose here’s how they compare:

Lancome HypnoseRevlon Mega Multiplier
PackagingSlim and SleekFlat, wide, bulky
BrushSlim and narrowBulky at top and narrows down
ApplicationSmooth and easyAwkward and uneven
Flake/SmudgeBy days end, it dries out, and flakesDid not flake or smudge
RemovalDifficult even with eye makeup removerRemoves easily with even with wet makeup remover wipes

 

From a cost perspective, Lancome products are more expensive, so Revlon Mega Multiplier is more budget friendly. Personally, I prefer mascaras that have slim packaging, a clean easy to use brush and mascara that glides on smoothly with no clumps. The Revlon Mega Multiplier did apply smooth, did not flake or dry up after wearing for a full day. A slimmer design in brush and packaging might have convinced me to make the switch.
