A Tale of Disappointment - Revlon Lash Potion By Grow Luscious

That moment when your mum says "I'm not angry, just disappointed", the time when you paid £12.00 to see the pile of utter wank that is Breaking Dawn Part 2, the moment your phone lights up and the thoughts that run through your head in those brief seconds, before you see the text message from Dominos.....


It was a disappointment that led me to find this mascara in the first place, 3 Boots and 1 Superdrug later and still no Maybelline Baby Lips! But just as that familiar feeling set in, I saw this sparkly little tube and I thought I had hit the jackpot!

This mascara is relatively new in America so I was surprised to see it released in the UK so soon. I really wanted to try it and it had been on my wish list for when I go to America in September. Plus Superdrug had an offer on, buy 2 Revlon items for £10.00. This mascara was £9.99 so basically buy one get one free, oh I thought all my Christmases had come at once.....

I bought this in waterproof as I am prone to getting panda eyes. Now onto the review....

This mascara is so dry! You know when your mascara is running out but you think it will do one more time, its like that....except its brand new! It took me quite a few coats to get much of anything on my lashes and by this point I was panicking. 

As well as the formula not being great, the brush was also pretty useless. Its a bristle brush but there are so many bristles on the thing that none of them grab your lashes. If you want a visual, imagine brushing your hair with a toothbrush. 

I don't know if its just the waterproof version that is rubbish but I wont be picking up the normal version to compare. After what felt like the tenth coat and 5 minutes of of faffing around it didn't look too bad but I would definitely not recommend this. 

I had given the other one to my mum and when I asked her what she thought she said 
"It's not bad....once you manage to get something on the brush"




  1. Great review, but I actually had the opposite thing happen to me, I bought the non waterproof version and I found that it was too watery or runny but I found that the longer you had this mascara the less runny it got and the better it worked! Haha maybe you got a bad tube, but I understand your frustrations.

    1. Ah, thats so weird! I did think it could have been a dodgy tube but my Mum had the same problem. Maybe it was just a dodgy batch! Did you like it in the end?
