Makeup Revolution haven’t really nailed the whole mascara thing yet. They’ve done an amazing job with eyeshadows and highlighters, but none of their mascaras have been any good, so I was intrigued by the launch of the Makeup Revolution The Viper Mascara £3, and wanted to see if it was any good.
“Makeup Revolution Viper Mascara With Bite is an amazing volume-giving mascara, with a unique brush. The curved and special brush is designed to capture every last hair and apply a precise dose to the lashes. Use the brush backside for a given volume as well as lift and use the brush side to give a curved effect to the lashes.”

Makeup Revolution The Viper Mascara Review
The Makeup Revolution The Viper Mascara has nice outer packaging with a bronze hue, and a snake print effect which I think really stands out and is different to any other mascara packaging I’ve seen. When this mascara launched, I saw people compare it to the Lorac Cobra Mascara, and although I’ve never tried the Lorac mascara, they are visually very similar so it might be worth a try if you have been wanting to try the Lorac mascara.
The Viper Mascara has a natural bristle wand, with an unique arched almost snake head effect to the brush which is designed to give lift to your lashes. Although it was a brand new mascara when I tried it, the formula was quite thick and sticky almost as if it had been opened for a few weeks before I tried it when it definitely had been sealed.
The mascara does give a nice amount of curl to the lashes, but it’s just OK. I don’t find myself wowed by the formula, and although I like the brush, it doesn’t give my lashes anything different to any other mascara I’ve tried. It’s not something I’d repurchase but I’m pleased I gave it a try. I really hope that one day Makeup Revolution manage to create an impressive mascara as it’s something they’re seriously lacking within their product range.
