What Revlon says:
"The Ultimate Black Bold Definition! Get Volume + Length to the nth degree. Our first mascara with only high shine black fibers."
This mascara has a standard wand with natural bristles. The bristles are tightly packed together and sometimes contains too much product. There was a lot of product build up in my brushes as I used it. I had to use a tissue paper to squeeze out some of the product to ensure it doesn't clump my lashes.
I like that the tapered end makes it easy to pick up the lashes in the corner. Although the Revlon description says "high shine", I wouldn’t say that you get a super dark dramatic lash look. This does well with everyday length but does not provide a lot of volume nor "high shine".
I do like that it didn't make my eyelashes feel crunchy. It kept a soft fluttery feel all day so it would be good for going to school or work where you want to feel comfortable and don't mind a bit less drama. It wore well for 4 hours and still looked fresh and lifted. However at the 8 hour mark, the lashes have drooped and I lost a lot of length.
There are lots of online reviews that say this mascara flaked on them but I didn't experience any flaking or smudging.
Overall, the mascara was just okay. With tons of great drugstore options these days, I'd probably pass on this unless you find a great sale. It does offer a comfortable wear and good length but there was nothing too special about the formula.
