Although I’m totally in love with my favourite mascara, Guerlain Maxi Lash and I have yet to find something I like quite as much, I can never seem to resist trying out a new drugstore mascara (especially when they are on sale!). I’ve had good luck with some of the Revlon mascaras, so I gave the Bold Lacquer Length & Volume Mascara a try.
I immediately found the wand and the formula very similar to the Guerlain Maxi Lash. I really like a more traditional bristle mascara brush, and I also don’t like wands that are too big. The Revlon wand is bigger than the Guerlain, but still a manageable size. The wand did a great job at coating each and every one of my lashes to build volume.
The thing I really like about the Guerlain is that it’s very, very black and dramatic. Described as having “intense colour pigments”, the Bold Laquer is the blackest mascara I have tried from the drugstore. Its just about as intensely black as the Guerlain. Dare I say, it might be a dupe?
The big difference between the two is that the Revlon mascara has fibers. I think that’s what gives such a noticeable volumizing effect. I seriously felt like I had false lashes on. But the downside of fibers is that I did find they flaked off a little bit by the end of the day. Not too badly, but I don’t get any flaking with the Guerlain, it just stays put. I wouldn’t say its a deal breaker for me. I really like the Revlon and would repurchase it.
The Revlon Bold Lacquer Length & Volume Mascara is typically around $9.99 CAD, but I got mine on sale at Lawton’s for only $7.99.
