Review of Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping Waterproof Mascara

Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping Waterproof Mascara — Walmart $4.97

I went to Wally World last week and headed over to the makeup aisle as I always do whether I need anything or not. I was however on the hunt for a waterproof mascara as my allergies have been acting up.  My go to waterproof mascara is Wash-Off  Waterproof from Avon.

It really is a great product but you know me and my unfaithfulness to mascara, I am always on the prowl for the latest and greatest.  I didn’t want to spend more than $6 so I headed to Wally. I have not really heard anything about this particular line from Revlon and to be honest I don’t think I have used a mascara from Revlon before.

First Impression: Formula seemed a little thick and I don’t like spidery looking lashes so I was nervous what the results would be.  The brush is pretty big which means I will get it all around my eyes.  Actually the brush size might have nothing to do with it, I think I just make a mess when I put on mascara regardless of the size of the brush.

Application: For a Semi-thick formula it went on pretty smoothly.  I did notice the effects of spider legs starting to appear with a second coat so I don’t think that this is layering mascara, and if it is you will need to do it fast.  My first coat wasn’t dry when I started to get the spider effect.  I did end up getting mascara on my eyelid but again, I think that is just me, but I don’t think the large size of the brush was doing me any favors either.

Conclusion: This mascara “plumped” up my eyelashes and made them fuller and gave a bit of volume  but did not add any substantial length.  Next time I wear this mascara I will first put on a lengthening mascara and then layer this on top and see if I like the results better.
