“Do you believe in magic? Seeing is believing with Revlon’s revolutionary new mascara that delivers spell-binding volume and supernatural length from the very first application.” New from Revlon this month is their Revlon’s Lash Potion Volume & Length Mascara that offers longer, fuller lashes with a formula that strengthens lashes with proteins, vitamins, and amino acids.
Can we just take a minute to appreciate the colourful packaging and the full coloured wraparound label, looks somewhat expensive to me? It comes with an “Illusionist Wand” that is made from traditional soft nylon bristles, the triple groove bristle brush are widely spaced out which allows you to easily coat your lashes from the root to tip in one easy swipe leaving your lashes with a clump-free look.
From my very first application, my lashes were longer and had more volume to them but I really loved the idea that not only am I lengthening my lashes but I’m strengthening at the same time. The formula is just perfect for me, not too dry or wet and its thicker formula adheres to my lashes quite easily and quickly. I’ve been applying two coats; the first coat adds length and definition to my lashes, while the second coat adds volume. The formula is lightweight so it doesn’t leave my lashes stiff or crunchy and it dries within seconds.
I was out in the rain with it on the other day and the staying power was incredible for not being a waterproof mascara, which by the way I always buy in fear that the mascara will start to run down my face mid-day. I did notice a little bit of the mascara under my lower lash line after being out in the rain, but not nearly as bad as other non-waterproof mascaras. If it was just a normal day (ie no rain) this mascara didn’t smudge or flake off at all throughout the day and lasted a good 8 hours on my lashes before I would even consider taking it off and re-applying a new coat. Since this is not a waterproof mascara I found I was able to remove it quickly and easily with just my regular facial cleanser; no makeup remover needed.
Overall I am very happy with this new mascara, the packaging is adorable, I’m loving the return of the simple brush, it has an easy application and gives me the perfect amount of length to my lashes that I’m looking for in a mascara. I generally buy waterproof mascara, so my next time around I’ll be picking up that version as I just feel it lasts a little longer on my lashes?
