My Experience with Revlon Ultra Volume Waterproof Mascara, 051 Blackest Black:

I purchased this waterproof mascara when my previous Lotus Botanical Volume mascara got over last year. Usually, we should throw away mascara after 3 months of usage or when it gets dried. But to be honest, I don’t have that heart to throw away any makeup product, especially when I know I used it merely a couple of times!! I do full face makeup only on special occasions, so be it foundation or eye-shadow or lipstick all makeup products last me years (*facepalm*). I am very particular (read finicky) about my skin care products though! Thankfully, I have almost finished this one, so shall buy new mascara soon.

Product Packaging:

Revlon ultra volume 051 Blackest Black mascara comes encased in plastic packaging. The product further comes in a beautifully designed pink & black coloured, flat tube packaging with a lash plumping brush. The pink wand top has flat edges to hold nicely. The price, ingredients and brush details everything is mentioned on the outer packaging. It is travel-friendly.

Product Texture: 

The texture of Revlon 051 Blackest Black mascara is creamy and the colour is jet black. Revlon has both waterproof and non-waterproof mascara variants, this one is waterproof.

Product Performance:

Revlon says the Lash Plumping Brush has short & long bristles designed to comb every lash and eliminate clumps. But in reality, this mascara brush couldn’t live up to these claims!! The brush wand is too big to hold, thanks to its design. Moreover, the brush doesn’t reach every lash as they claim it would. Applying it on the lower lash line is a task in itself.

Coming to its clump-free formula claim, I found by the third coat it starts clumping, especially if you let dry this mascara in between coats. It’s waterproof mascara after all! I often curl my lashes before applying the mascara, but it doesn’t hold the curls for a long time. 

 So what I liked about it?

When applied, the mascara feels lightweight and provides a soft, natural fanned-out effect on the lashes. It separates the individual lashes, adds a nice volume to my otherwise thin lashes and lifts my eyes but requires at least 2-3 coats for such effect! By the way, it wouldn’t add any drama or ultra volume to your lashes, for that you can check out the new variants in their mascara category.

This waterproof mascara never irritated my sensitive eyes and is tears-proof as well. I remember while watching an emotional movie I cried a lot yet it stayed put on the lashes!! I washed my face a lot of times also, and it didn’t come off. On the lashes, it stays for more than 6 hours but at times it flakes a bit.

This can be easily removed by Vaseline or any oil-based makeup remover. I use Etude House Eye and Lips Makeup Remover to remove my eye makeup.

NBAM Rating: 4.3/5

To sum up,

Revlon Ultra Volume Waterproof 051 Blackest Black Mascara is perfect as an everyday-wear product that provides a soft, natural look to your eyelashes. This mascara is certainly not meant for those who crave for dramatic eyelashes or ultra volume. It doesn’t do a great job in adding intense volume or length to the lashes either. Nonetheless, it’s a great pick for the beginners.

Well, this long-pending post got finally published today and I hope you found the review helpful.

See you soon 💗
