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.
