A little over a month ago I received the Revlon Mega Multiplier Mascara Vox Box from Influenster* and I’ve been testing out it out (off-and-on) ever since. I’ve formed an opinion on it and it’s time to put a review out there!
This mascara is described as an innovative formula that combines fibers and 360 degree tube technology in one step to plump and extend lashes. Other claims and features include:
- Flake-free; smudge proof wear
- Revlon Mega Lash Brush that deposits formula from lash line to tip for a Mega Lash Look
- Removes easily with warm water (that seems to contradict the previous point but okay!)
Retails for $7.99 – 11.99 CAD, depending on retailer
I don’t know if anyone really cares all that much about the packaging on mascara but I’ll talk about it anyway. I’d say their packaging is somewhat unique with it’s flat and oval-esqe design but it’s not my favourite. I guess it’s just not a mascara that looks like it’d cost up to twelve dollars. That said, it is very lightweight and it’s nothing that would stop me from purchasing this on my own if I enjoyed the mascara itself.
No scent here.

BRUSH, FORMULA & PERFORMANCE
As mentioned above, this is both a tubing and fibre mascara which is definitely unique. I’ve used tubing mascaras in the past but never a fibre mascara so I was interested to see how the two worked together.
The brush is a bristle brush and starts to taper about halfway down. I actually really liked the brush itself – it “grabbed” at my lashes and coated them with ease. The formula left something to be desired however. This claims to plump the lashes but I’d say that clump is a better descriptor – after using this my lashes were just clumped together in groups, particularly if I tried to build it up with more than just one coat. It definitely delivered on length but I found that it gave my lashes that thin, spidery look that I’m just not a fan of.
One of the claims that excited me the most about this mascara was “flake-free, smudge-proof wear”. I’ve never found a mascara that doesn’t smudge or flake or smudge and flake on me – some are just worse than others. While this doesn’t smudge on me, it still flakes, although less than other mascaras.
I don’t like tubing mascaras mainly for their removal process; it’s just an extra step that I can’t be bothered with. If you’ve never used a tubing mascara before, you have to wet your lashes and gently pull at them to remove the tubes that have formed around each lash. There were many times where I forgot I was wearing this while washing my face so I had to go back to the sink and remove it because using a cleanser will not remove it it’s own. I did try using micellar water which worked but it was messy – there were tubes all over my makeup vanity afterwards. I’d prefer to just stick to using a cleanser and micellar water after to remove my mascara.
Personally, I won’t be purchasing this mascara once this tube is complete. I like thick and voluminious lashes and this is really more of a lengthening mascara. In addition, despite it’s claims, it flaked on me and I found the removal process tedious. Unfortunately it’s not the mascara for me.
