Today I’m bringing you round two of the Battle of the Mascaras! I’ve got Too Faced Lash Injection Extreme Thickening, Tube-Building Mascara pitted against Revlon Photoready 3D Volume Mascara.

The brushes are both large. However, the way Revlon’s brush is designed, it really separates and coats the lashes with ease. The Too Faced brush does coat well, but doesn’t separate the lashes as easily.

These are my naked lashes. If you noticed my left eye (which is on the right side in the picture), has lashes that cross over each other towards the outer lash line. No matter how much I comb them or curl them, they always do that. Any tips on how to make them straighten out would be appreciated!

Pros for Too Faced
Added nice volume and length to my lashes.
Didn’t smudge or flake on me.
Didn’t irritate my eyes.
Easy to Remove.
Paraben free.

Cons for Too Faced
It’s extremely hard for me to get a tubing mascara to tube. This one worked better than most, but still wasn’t easy.
Got slightly clumpy on me with the second coat.

Pros for Revlon
Added nice volume and length to my lashes.
Available in 3 shades.
Awesome brush that deterred clumping.
Didn’t clump or flake on me.
Very reasonable price.

Cons for Revlon
Not paraben free.

Between the brush design, the formula and the price, the Revlon Photoready 3D Volume Mascara won this round of Battle of the Mascaras.

Which would you choose? Which do you prefer?

Some products purchased by me. Some products sent for consideration. All opinions are my own.

  • I removed both with makeup remover.

  • How do you remove the Revlon? I love not having to use a make-up remover.

  • I included a picture of my naked lashes. My left lashes are always a little weird, even though I comb them out before I apply mascara, it seems like the formula on the Too Faced made them clump more.

  • Jenn

    The difference is really noticeable. The Too Faced looks very clumpy and the lashes look all wonkey, going one way or another. I would be very disappointed if I bought the Too Faced plus CVS always has deals on Revlon!
