Up today is Revlon's new Grow Luscious by Fabulash~ $8.99 at Walgreen's.
What it claims:
Get lashes that not only look instantly longer and lusher, they will also grow stronger day after day. Lash enhancing formula complements the natural growth cycle of your lashes and improves their overall appearance and condition with each use.
Sounds like a great idea! Let us see!!
First of all, let's look at some pics of how well this makes lashes "instantly longer and lusher."
One coat, and bare lashes to compare:
Well, one coat was okay but I really wanted some LUSH lashes-- so!
Ok let me tell you-- I am not a fan of HUGE brushes. They're just so hard for about 90% of the population to use because most of use need to work in to the root of lashes and build and build color to get the desired effect. So, complaint #1.
Complaint #2. This is actually my fault, because I picked up the waterproof version on mistake. Oops. But it was very hard to build and got clumpy and nasty very very easily. In the "Two Coats" picture above it doesn't look bad at all, but that took a LOT of work. And you almost have to do two coats to get a real "volumized" look. I thought I took a "clump" picture but I can't find it! Sorry.. just trust that if I don't want to spend the time making it work, you probably won't either, lol!
I have to admit, I'm a bad reviewer in this case because since it was so clumpy, I only wore it for about 2 weeks.. frustration.. but I didn't see any improvement as far as the "lash enhancing formula."
However! I am a good researcher! =) So this is what I found:
"These products contain nutrients and amino acids that will increase the health of the lashes through their growth cycle. They will probably prevent lashes from falling out as much, and people may perceive that as increased thickness. But the products aren't going to make the hairs longer or thicker."

(Which sounds a bit like my Lash Serum post awhile back~ and that makes me think of my Double Extend mascara, which I liked so much! I'm going to dig this puppy back out!)
What do you think? Have you tried this? What do you think of the mascara+serum trend?
Until Next Time!
