Magical Mascara! Revlon Lash Potion Review

Whilst in New York last week, I couldn't resist picking up this new mascara from Revlon. It's their 'Lash Potion'. Not only does it have beautiful, eye-catching, fairytale packaging, but it came upon high recommendation from my friend Tati.

I don't need to say much more about the packaging other than that I adore it.

The brush is a large bristle one that coats the lashes really nicely. It's big, but not so big that you get mascara on your eyelids, nose etc!

The effect is really quite stunning. It's a very volumising mascara, but it also adds a lot of length too. It manages to do something quite rare amongst mascaras in the fact that it doesn't clump, or make your eyelashes look 'spidery', but it adds serious volume. My lashes look thick and luscious but not too much.
What's even better about this mascara is that is doesn't flake, smudge or transfer one bit. I bought the waterproof version (again, on recommendation from Tati, as the normal version hasn't had such good reviews) and while it is tricky to remove with a mere face wipe, it's a perfect choice for summer. I absolutely love this and would 100% recommend it if you're looking for a new 'drugstore' mascara. I would say it's up-there with my favourite Max Factor and Maybelline options.

I don't think it is currently available in the UK, but you can pick it up from drugstores in the US priced at $7.99 (though it appears to be $4.99 in Target at the moment - steal!)

  3. I'm glad to see your positive review of this! :) I had read some poor reviews about it which made me sad because the tube is just so darn pretty! lol

  4. Ah I'm so upset this isn't available in the UK! It looks perfect, I hate it when my lashes go all stiff and spidery - not attractive at all!

  6. thanks for the reviews Fleur! they are really helpful but if you don't mind I would like to do a suggestion: could you enlarge or post the pictures of you wearing the product with more details? because for this post and some others that I have seen before you post super big images to show the packaging or the product itself and I would like to have a better view of you wearing the product, of how it is working on you, plus if you can post more pictures of you using it or swatches than pictures of the packaging.

    Thanks Fleur for your help and keep beautiful! :)

    1. Just in case you haven't found something yet. Maybe try a gentle lotion cleanser. I just got Avon's 'conditioning eye makeup remover lotion' which is the first I have found which doesn't sting my eyes or have me gouging them out trying to remove product. L'Oreal's new skin perfection range cleansing oil or cleansing water might work too. I have heard good things about them.

  89. Good news that the waterproof version works wonders but my concern is, does the mascara to any of you ever weight down your natural lashes? Reason why i hesitate to try. The grow luscious did and obviously, didn't like that! Can anyone tell me?!!

  90. I've seen this in the drugstores but have yet to try it out. I have been hearing good things about it and now after hearing good reviews from both you and Tati, I think I'll have to give it a whirl! :)
