AMW Reviews: Revlon Grow Luscious by Fabulash

There's something about October that I love, probably the long China Holiday we follow at work, my wedding anniversary (3rd year this year!) and the weather is just starting to be nice! (minus the El Nino phenomenon)  Anyone share the same sentiments as myself for the month of October?  

*group hugs*

Now let me start by saying, finally!  I got another mascara review!  Been too lazy in reviewing mascara, I know a lot of girls out there can't go home without it...I , definitely can survive without this!  I am just too lazy to remove them at the end of the day!  <--- that's just me! :)


Revlon Grow Luscious by Fabulash says ---

The first Revlon mascara that helps lashes grow stronger while visibly adding length and volume 
  • Lash enhancing formula complements the natural growth cycle of your lashes, improving their overall appearance and conditioning with each use  
  • Get lashes that look instantly longer and lusher and will also grow stronger day after day
  • Oversized lash-extending brush 
  • Ophthalmologist tested
Available in 4 shades: Blackest Black, Black, Blackened Brown and Black Shimmer

AMW says ---
Pros
  • mascara wand is not too runny, which makes it easier to apply minus the mess
  • does lengthen lashes and makes it look thicker
  • does not make my lashes crunchy even after the whole day
  • easy to remove with a good eye makeup remover
  • has added benefit of making the lash stronger per use (as advertised), not all mascaras have added benefits of lash protection
  • no allergies or burning sensation experienced after using this product
  • does not flake on me for the whole day
  • lashes came out natural looking, you can barely tell I had mascara on
  • packaged quite nicely once purchased!
Cons
  • brush wand is quite big for small eyes like myself (a photo below compares the mascara wand size I am comfortable with, top one is Revlon's, bottom is a mascara from L'Oreal)
  • mascara texture is a bit too dry for a newly opened product.
  • curl is gone after mascara application, have to re-curl lashes
Overall
Not a bad mascara but not the best for me!  It's so-so and I think people with longer lashes and larger eyes will enjoy this more!  I prefer using this on clients especially after falsh lashes application as the huge wand works really well with falsies!

Tips
from Revlon

  • Apply the mascara to upper lashes first. 
  • Take the brush and hold it underneath the top lashes close to the roots and sweep brush upwards from the roots to tips. 
  • Apply a few coats to build your lashes ro desired volume. 
  • For bottom lashes, use the tip of the brush to apply a thin coat of mascara in delicate strokes.

from AMW
  • quickly apply 2-3 coats on each eye for that quick length and volume
  • after application, brush lashes with a spoolie to prevent clumps
  • use the business card method to protect your lids during application
  • for personal use, mascara life can be prolonged to 6 months
  • to extend the life of the mascara, dip the mascara on a glass of hot water
  • mark the date of your mascara once open so you can keep track on its expiration date!



Will I repurchase?
Not for now.

To whom do I recommend this product to?
 Anyone who loves non-watery mascara texture.  For girls who already have long lashes but wants to volume and extra "fullness" effect it gives minus the "fake lash" effect.

Where to purchase and how much?
At Revlon counters for Php625.00 (approx $14.20)

If there's any changes with the "Black" version, I will report back! 
Have you tried this new mascara?  I've been seeing ads of this around!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  2. Haven't seen this product available in my country yet. But i'm actually not that excited with Revlon's mascara range. Tried 2 types and both was bad. Anyway great review!

  3. Hi Nikki! I guess I can compare it with my L'oreal Collagen mascara. It's for volumizing and also very dry. Not my type. Hope you can visit my blog and put me in your blogroll! :)

  4. Uh oh. I like mascaras that can hold the curls. I don't want to have mascara on my curler! And it's dry? It might flake and fall on the eyes! Not good. Thanks for the good review. :)

  5. Thanks for the review. This looks very nice and natural on your lashes. I prefer something more dramatic though so this is not for me.

  6. Anastacia, hey thank you! :) My lashes are just too sparse though

    Charming Vanity, I've heard that sentence so many times, but who knows? They will come with more better ones :)

    Simple Effortless, thanks for the visit :) Will visit soon

    Pammy, I know what you mean, actually it's ok for me if mascaras do not hold curls, as long as they lengthen and make it look really thick :) It'll be LOVE

    Gio, no worries, I agree, drama lashes at times is what I go for too :)
