Makeup Revolution The Viper Mascara Review

14th January 2015

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.
