As promised, here is my review of the new Revlon 3D mascara. It was one of my surprise Paraben Free finds. The tube is made of metal, which is really cool and handy if you do a magnetized wall palette. The brush has a unique shape with a taper (see photo). I had the same experience of other users with the mascara coming out looking very clumpy and dried up, like a really old mascara. It went on very thick and clumped up on my lashes, I only did one coat. I was able to brush them out a bit, but it was still chunky looking. The product DOES make your eyelashes look larger and more dramatic, but the application performance is very lacking. From the moment the mascara dried, it continued to fleck off into my eyes and on my cheeks.
