Revlon Grow Lucious by Fabulash

The obsession for longer lashes continues with the launch of Revlon's new Grow Luscious by Fabulash mascara and lash enhancer, which promises longer and fuller lashes while helping them to grow stronger with each use.

It contains wheat protein which coats the lashes and provides conditioning and strengthening properties. Panthenol and Phytantriol (I'm as confused as you. chemistry was not my forte at school) work together to condition and moisturise, resulting in strengthening the lashes.

So basically, they all do the same thing right?

Sounds impressive though, doesn't it? That's not all, 96% of the women who tested this saw instantly longer, fuller and more lush lashes.

Revlon is one of my favourite high street brands and I love a number of their products - Colorstay foundation, Super Lustrous lipglosses, Colorburst lipsticks, and their nail polishes. I think they're all gems. 

However I don't love this ..

I had high hopes for Grow Luscious by Fabulush (I don't know who/what Fabulush is by the way) and since I'm a fan of the oversized brush that Maybelline Colossal has, I thought my experience would be similar.


I find the formula to be quite dry and it drags against my lashes as I apply it. This isn't helped by the oversized brush which doesn't give me much control and perhaps would have had a different effect had the formula been 'wetter'. Because the formula is dry, it often 'trips', as I pull it along my lashes and I end up with mascara on my eyelid which is annoying as I then have to grab a cotton bud and clear it all up.

Having said that my lashes do look thicker after application but I find it hard to separate them and it doesn't give me any length. I find flaking and smudging to be minimal too after a day's wear which is impressive for a non-waterproof formula. However, overall I find application quite awkward. This is the first Revlon mascara I've tried, hopefully their next offering will impress me more.

With continued use this lash enhancing formula promises to improve your lashes but unfortunately I can't bring myself to use it regularly to find out.

How much is it? £8.99
Where can I buy it? Boots, Superdrug

Aw I was hoping you were going to recommend this. I've been using the Lancome Hypnose Precious Cells and it has improved the condition of my lashes but for £23 it doesn't give the drama or length I like. Was hoping Revlon was going to provide a budget alternative. Pahh. Onto the next one!x

@LionLovingTiger - Well I'm not the Beauty Messiah. I personally don't like it, but it may work wonders for you, you won't know unless you try it ;-)

Oh boo :( dry mascaras are the worst!

Damn this bum rush of mascaras has me batty! I am still using Maybeline Great Lash (Green top pink bottle)! But not before curling them with a lash curler and then applying Mac Primer for lashes. Honestly I have been too lazy to find a product that doesn't require all that work... then I have a mini lash comb to rid the clumps... Hoy vey... I have been meaning to go to Sephora and just do an eyelash mascara crawl ... but the time involved!! smh There are too many products. I want one that does everything in one bottle!!! Longer, thinker, helps them grow and protects them and for the love of the one above that does not pull out my lovely lashes when I am trying to remove it!

Thanks for the great review!

Funny isn't it, I really love this one so far. To the point that I'd probably say its the best mascara I've used in ages.

I don't hold out any hope for it strengthening my lashes or making them grow, but I'm really happy with the look, LOVE that it doesn't flake or smudge and haven't found it too dry, although I've only had it a week so that may change.

I'm doing some before and after pics on the blog, so we'll see how it goes.

What mascara are you using at the mo? I'm curious to see if we're mascara polar oppposites and its something that I hate! lol

VexintheCity said...

@Tshai - Thanks. I've had a read of yours.

@Silhouette Dreams - Yeah, I'm not a fan of the formula at all. It does make my lashes look thicker but the brush and dry texture just gives me too many issues.

@V - Ooh I hate that Maybelline mascara. The brush is so spindly. That's a lot of work you're putting into your lashes every morning LOL

@Beth - Lancome Hypnose Drama. Love, love it!!!
