Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara Review

I've had this Revlon Photoready 3D Volume mascara for months and I'm glad Revlon packaged their mascaras quite well (especially this specific mascara), the brush is separated in the packaging and the mascara itself was closed pretty tight!  

As I'm ready to use it, that's the time I dip my super white bristled mascara wand (which broke my heart by the way) and used it for more than a month!  I'm finally here to review "yet another" mascara from Revlon.  In the past, the brand, in terms of mascaras, just gave me a "hohum" review.  Will this one makes a huge difference?  

AMW Reviews: Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara 
in 002 Black Noir
It didn't say Waterproof so I assume this is the non-waterproof version.
Revlon says ---
The exclusive reflective formula magnifies and multiplies the look of your lashes, easily creating the appearance of bigger, bolder volume.  The Lash Builder Brush has a special lash-accentuating tip that reaches every last lash to provide dimension to the extreme.

Available in 3 shades: Blackest Black, Black, and Blackened Brown 

AMW says ---
  • Uniquely bristled brush with rounded tip on the end making it easy to use it to reach short and very sparse lashes.
  • The brush is separated from the mascara packaging itself upon purchase.
  • Separates each of my lashes nicely.
  • Gives a nice length.
  • Comes in wonderful array of shades!  I am loving Blackest Black too!
  • This mascara can definitely maintain the curl of my lashes!  In short, the formulation doesn't weigh my lashes down.
  • Doesn't create crunchy lashes.
  • For a non-waterproof mascara, this particular mascara dries up really well and doesn't smudge or smear on me.  (Note: I don't have super oily lids)'
  • Easy to remove with regular eye makeup remover.
  • Doesn't provide the volume I want.
  • This mascara could be a candidate for "clumps" if not applied correctly and carefully.
  • Price.
Gives great length, holds the curl and the brush is good as it can reach even the shortest lashes.  For a non-waterproof formula, the mascara doesn't smudge or smear on normal lids.

from Revlon
  • Apply the mascara to the upper lashes from root to tip.
  • Apply once again in order to build more volume and length.
  • Use specially designed lash finding brush tip to capture and fan out every lash
from AMW
  • Curl your lashes prior to any mascara application to prevent clumps.
  • Tilt your head up and always apply starting at the roots wiggling it all the way to the tips.
  • The Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara tends to dry up easily so be quick in applying your 2nd or 3rd coat.
  • Stop usage once signs of irritations occur.  
  • If most mascaras smudge on you, always go for the waterproof version. 
To whom do I recommend this to?Girls with naturally full lashes who needs the length!

Where to purchase and how much?
At local Revlon counters nationwide for Php750.00 (approx $18.75).


Front view
Gives a nice definition that looks natural.

Side View
It uplifts my lashes even without much curling.  I didn't curl my lashes on the before photo, it was just weird how my lashes was curled up in a weird way that day when I took a shot!

Top View
Each lashes are well defined at the same time, the length definitely increased!

Have you tried the Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara?
Would you purchase this?

So far, the Revlon PhotoReady 3D Volume Mascara is one of the best Revlon mascaras I've tried in terms of its lengthening and curling powers!  If only the mascara can give more volume, this will definitely be a winner in my mascara history! :D

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!


  1. Woah. Pricey na for a mascara huh? I haven't seen that sa drugstores here...or I could be wrong, I never look at revlon mascaras. Maybelline all the way for me still!

    1. I know what you mean, when it comes to mascara na drugstore, automatic talaga Maybelline! But it's nice to try other brands din kasi! I wonder if ok ang Max Factor? have you tried?

  2. wow! kahit sa before pic ganda na ng lashes ah at hindi pa na-curl yang lagay na yan ha! :)

    1. hahahahah weird, parang naipit ata sa tulog yung curled lashes na weird! parang L shape! hahahaha

  3. parang kamukha ng covergirl lash blast un wand, im not loving it pero covergirl used to be my hg mascara

    1. I agree, ang difference lang this one at the tip has extra bristles! Sa Lash Blast mas konti :D

  4. It's a shame this doesn't provide more volume as that's the main thing I'm looking for in a mascara. Thanks for the review.

    1. I know Gio! Though we are living on a separate world, I have a feeling our "demands" for makeup are similar :D thanks for sharing your thoughts!

  5. Definitely not enough of volume but the side view is great!

  6. from side view it looks really great! i have never tried revlon mascara but have been using maybeline for most of my life. have tried fasio, but i think i am allergic to it >< it gives me itchy eyes

    1. I know what you mean sis, when we talk about drugstore mascaras, Maybelline always comes to mind :D

  7. I think mas madali siya hanapin online. Ayaw ko kasi online noon, I want to see the shade for myself in person.. Hehehe.

    1. tama, hirap pumili ng shades online kaya i pretty much purchase foundations and concealers in person rather than online :D


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
