Grow, Lashes, Grow!
I need to give a high five to drugstore beauty brands, because lately I have been loving me some budget-friendly mascaras.
My latest find just happens to be Revlon’s Grow Luscious mascara…a mascara that I thought I would never buy when I first saw the ads. But, when my tube of Rimmel Glam’Eyes bit the dust, I knew that I had to try out a new brand (I’m hardly loyal) of drugstore mascara and I have to admit…I was intrigued by Revlon’s Grow Luscious mascara, but I wasn’t expecting any miracles.
As you’re well aware, the new hot beauty products are the ones that promise to help you grow new, longer, and thicker lashes (think Latisse). There are several mascaras, serums, and prescription treatments on the market right now promising new lash growth. So, when Revlon jumped on the bandwagon with Jessica Biel as their spokes model (ahem, wearing false lashes in the ads) I turned my nose up at the idea of actually purchasing their mascara. That is, until I ran out of mascara and wanted to try something different (I have little willpower). So, I thought it would be fun to at least try out an inexpensive “lash hype” version of mascara…and if it didn’t work, I was only out $8.99. What I wasn’t expecting, was to actually really, really, like it.
Here’s Revlon’s claims on Grow Luscious:
*96% saw instantly longer lashes
*Lash enhancing formula complements your own lash growth cycle, improving the overall condition and appearance with each use
*Lashes grow stronger each day with daily use
Here’s my two cents:
*The mascara brush head was HUGE, it looked exactly like Benefit’s BADgal mascara…a mascara I loved to death in college
*The mascara went on easy with no clumps, great separation, length, and volume
*The very first day I wore the mascara someone commented on how long my lashes looked
*While I haven’t noticed any growth (my lashes are naturally long), I have noticed less lash loss
*I’m obsessed with the aqua green tube
All in all, I’m really pleased with this mascara and I would recommend it to everyone. It comes in four shades: Black, Blackest Black, Blackened Brown, and Black Shimmer. I almost caved and got the Black Shimmer, but the last time I did that I didn’t notice any shimmer at all, so I opted for the Blackest Black and I’m super pleased. Like I said, I haven’t really noticed any growth, but I’m only a few weeks into the tube. But, I will say I love the formula and how my lashes look and you can’t beat the price tag (under $10)…I have no doubt this mascara will grow on you.
