If I was only allowed to have one single beauty product, it would without a nano second of a doubt be a mascara! I am a complete mascara girl - I've lost count of how many brands I've tried, I've tried different colors, effects (volume, length etc) and I am VERY fickle. Even if I do actually like a product, it's unusual for me to repurchase it straight away since there are so many other products to choose from that promise the perfect look, and the only time I've ever actually done that was with L'Oréal's False Lash Telescopic mascara. Don't actually have it anymore - see I told you so, fickle! Even though I have blonde eyelashes, they are pretty long, slightly curved and of good quality which is why I'm always on the hunt for the perfect mascara to emphasize their shape. There are two types of mascaras that will inevitably get my attention: the first one is if they play on the flared look and the other one is if it promises ridiculously long lashes, and when I first heard about Revlon's Lash Potion Grow Luscious Mascara I thought it sounded just like something I should try.
This mascara claims to have almost magical effects through "spellbinding volume and supernatural length" with the help of the formula which is packed with strengthening proteins that will create volume. The whole witches brew theme is of course also played at in the name of the product, and the beautiful prismatic packaging - all very cute!
I bought the Blackest Black shade (not waterproof) and I find that it's quite a dry mascara, but at the same time it's still fluid enough for you to get enough product on the brush in one go for one coat, which will give you great coverage. Another good thing is that it doesn't clump or flake in any way and at least on me, it stays put all through the day without any smudging.
The brush is very large and bristly and it comes with triple-grooves that comb through the lashes preventing the spider leg effect. It does cover your lashes very well with a few sweeps and it's also nifty enough to reach the shorter eye lashes closest to your nose. For me however, the brush feels a little stiff and I would have preferred it to be more flexible and bendy to better follow the fanned shape of the lashes and to easier build up volume from the root of the lashes.
After only one coat, you can't help but notice the volumising effect and the lashes look thick and dreamy. If you add just a thin second coat on the end of the lashes you'll also get that ridiculous length that you can sometimes only get with falsies.
This is definitely a very good mascara for this price range, that will create a volumised look and give good coverage with minimal effort, although for me the magic isn't all there mainly because of the brush. Have you tried this mascara, and did you think it was out of this world?
