A friend of mine recently got hitched and it gave me an excuse to splurge (not that I need a reason to loosen the strings of my purse 😛 ) This is one of the products that I bought for this occasion. Let’s see how Revlon Grow Luscious by Fabulash Mascara and Lash Enhancer 01 Blackest Black fared.

My Experience with Revlon Grow Luscious by Fabulash Mascara and Lash Enhancer:
The product comes in vivid bright green bottle with its particulars spelled out in bold golden print. The cylindrical bottle that appears to be plastic (although I’m not sure) is sturdy and break-proof, a travel friendly one. The brush attached to the screw-on cap is provided with tufts of evenly-spaced, dense bristles spiraling from the tip on its way down. The mascara is, peculiarly, redolent of glue! But one could ignore that, given the miniscule amount we apply. It certainly doesn’t linger. The mascara is probably the darkest of black I’ve come across, the shade itself is called “01 Blackest Black”. Its consistency is extremely dense, of which I was rather skeptical. I wondered if it would flake or clump while applying. I was relieved my fears didn’t come out to be true. Far from clumping, its dense consistency makes for smooth application. It distinctly separates each lash in the first swipe and should you continue to apply, it will clump it ladies. So remember, in the case of this mascara, less is more. Also, its volumizing action begins to show in a single swipe. My lashes appeared longer, but only slightly. It does not, however, curl eyelashes and one must use an eyelash curler for added drama. I am also not sure if it stands true to its claims of strengthening eyelashes with every use or complimenting the natural growth cycle of eyelashes, for I couldn’t notice any of the above following a one month application. I think these claims are a bit too far-fetched. This mascara is not waterproof. I wore it a friend’s wedding ceremony and it came off in clumps during vidaai. :’( 😛 At least, I wasn’t sporting panda eyes by the time I was ready to leave.
Over all, this is a good mid- range, volumizing mascara that stays put for long hours if you avoid contact with water. It can be easily worn every day, even to work.
