Revlon Lash Potion Waterproof Mascara Review




Revlon Lash Potion (Waterproof) Mascara

This product is the first mascara by Revlon that I have ever tried, and I have to say I am impressed. The previous mascara I used was the Volume Express The Falsies Big Eyes Waterproof mascara (wow that's a long name!) by Maybelline. I liked the way it made my lashes look, but for some reason it seemed to irritate my eyes. I noticed that every time I wore it, my eyelids were itchy and puffy and just did not feel right at all. Maybe I was allergic to it. I was really sad that I had to give it up, since it seemed to make my lashes look just the way I wanted them to. When I picked up this Revlon Lash Potion Mascara, I had no idea what to expect. I had never really heard anything about Revlon mascaras.

But as I said, I am very happy with how this mascara goes on and the way it makes my lashes look. In my opinion, it is similar to the mascara by Maybelline that I mentioned earlier, only better. It really lengthens my lashes, which is one of the main things I like in a mascara. It also gives my lashes about a medium thickness with one coat. It could probably provide more thickness with several coats, but I usually only do about one coat since I like more natural looking eyelashes. I don't want them to be too thick or clumpy, but just an enhanced version of how they already look. At first it can be a tiny bit clumpy, but then it is brushed out very quickly and easily. This mascara lasts a long time and I get virtually no fallout throughout the day, if any at all. This does means it is a bit difficult to get off at the end of the day. I always use eye makeup remover every night to take it off. I also think the formula is relatively wet, but not too wet when it is being applied. Maybe I just haven't tried other super fantastic mascaras out there, but compared to the mascaras I have tried before (Maybelline, Covergirl, and Rimmel London), this has probably been the best one I have tried so far. Have you tried this mascara? How does it work for you?

Summary:

Length: 4.5/5

Volume: 4/5

Lasting Power: 5/5

Consistency: Relatively wet

Amount of Fallout: Virtually none

Amount of "clumpiness": Virtually none
