Mascara wars: Revlon vs Lancome
We’ve been comparing mascaras for a while now, and the current winningest mascara is Lancome Virtuose. Check out all the results of past mascara wars on our Winningest products page.
This time we have another marvelous guest reviewer – Lisa (of Ratpony fame). Based on our previous reviews, she bought Lancome Virtuose to pit against her usual Revlon mascara. Here’s Lisa’s story and pretty peepers:
I put the old revlon on one eye and the new lancome on the other. I even gave revlon a fighting chance by putting the lancome on the eye that was already feeling like it might cry a little because when I was curling my lashes my finger slipped and it twisted and ripped out a few lashes (argh.. not a pleasant feeling). Plus no idea what the red mark on my eye is.
Anyway, I put the mascaras on and then did some housework (trying to recreate the feeling of utter hopelessness and despair that a poorly air conditioned office achieves) and then watched a movie. The results are pictured left.
The Revlon Fabulash – went on a bit clumpy… ended up sitting in the creases under my eye (creases ooooor wrinkles…). Multiple this by 10 and you have my eye at midday in the office.
Introducing the Lancôme Virtuôse… Well, I think the difference speaks for itself.
So, two very enthusiastic thumbs up for the prettyprettypretty recommendation. No more crappy Revlon mascara for me!
