To ensure ourselves to be camera-ready is somehow important nowadays with most of us could afford a camera or smartphone which enable us to snap photos anytime, anywhere. I’m pretty sure all of us wants to look good in their photos but I wasn’t expecting to the extend of lashes needs to be photo-ready.

Revlon Photoready 3D Volume Waterproof Mascara - Brush &  Shade Blackest Black

It comes with a huge brush and the bristles are dense enough to separate lashes during application. Notice that the bristles goes all the way to the tip of the brush? That part of the brush helps to reach out those tiny lower lashes. The shade that I have gotten here is Blackest Black.

Revlon Photoready 3D Volume Waterproof Mascara - Application

Here is the result from the application where you can see different transition.

  • Naked & Curled Lashes – My bare lashes, only curled it with lash curler
  • Single Coat – Lashes are darken and lengthen.
  • Double Coat – Lashes are much more darken, voluminous and lengthen.

It goes on smoothly for the single coat application but because the formula dries faster, the application doesn’t go on as smoothly on the second coat. Even so, my lashes are still separated well because I tried using the brushes to get in between my lashes.

Revlon Photoready 3D Volume Waterproof Mascara - Lasting Power

I put this to a test of a day and going to office as usual. The weather was rather warm and rainy by the evening.

  • 8:50AM – Freshly applied, lashes are darken, voluminous and lengthen.
  • 2:19PM – Lashes are slightly weighed down but it is still dark and voluminous.
  • 6:24PM – Lashes remained the same as how it looked like before.

No smudges at all after 9 and a half hours. I removed it using cleansing oil and needed to work on it for a bit more gently to remove the mascara. After removing it, lashes feels soft and no residue left.

Revlon Photoready 3D Volume Waterproof Mascara - Ingredients

Here is the ingredients listing and it contains Paraben. This mascara’s life span is 6 months upon opening.


I freaking love this mascara because I took a nap after my last record at 6:24PM and it did not budge or smudges over my pillow. My lashes are quite long and I love the volumizing effect from this mascara. The formula is quite wet, the chances of accidentally applied onto your skin is high. The drawbacks is that is contains Paraben and weighed down the lashes for a bit. Whether is camera ready, you’ll be judge. I think my lashes appear pretty nice from the photos!
