Mascara Clan - Revlon's Grow Luscious Mascara by Fabulash (Black) and L'Oreal's Volume Million Lashes (Black) - REVIEW

Recently I got myself a bunch of products from Boots which are shown in my December Haul blog post. And as I promised reviewing them for you, here are the two products that I’ll be reviewing and both being mascaras, one being Revlon’s Grow Luscious by Fabulash and the other is L’Oreal’s Volume Million Lashes . Before I start off with me review I just want to tell you guys that both of these mascaras falls approximately into the same price category over here.

I have been a mascara freak since forever. I think my lashes would look rather naked if I don’t have a coat of mascara on them. As you all know I watch make-up tutorials on and one of the finest beauty gurus that I follow is TiffanyD (I’ll post a link to her page) and I think she is absolutely fantastic (I also follow her on twitter by the way *teehee*). She was the one who introduced me to Revlon’s Grow Luscious by Fabulash mascara and mind you, it looked absolutely amazing on her as it gave her lashes an outstanding look (this is what I thought when I saw her using it in one of her makeup tutorials). Since then, I planned to get myself one and so I did.

Now this mascara comes in a surprisingly big tube/container/bottle (whatever you want to call it) possessing 112ml of product in it compared to the other mascaras that I have or had. The other thing about this product that also surprised me was the colour of its bottle/tube/container, its metallic green. I never came across a mascara with such sort of packaging.

The wand/applicator is huge too, almost crossing the 1 ½ inch mark on the scale length wise and is quiet fluffy. Other than that, there is nothing unusual about it.

Revlon says that it is the first Revlon mascara that helps lashes grow stronger while visibly adding length and volume.

How did I find it? I was really excited to get this product but I was a little disappointed probably because my expectations were way too high for this product. For me, it worked just like an ordinary volumising mascara if applied a generous coat of it. Though it made my lashes look slightly bigger and thicker, on the other hand I had to use a lash comb to get all the clots out.

Now coming to my other product is is L’Oreal’s Volume Million Lashes and it says,

Don’t just Volumize your lashes, millionize them.

Its brush, which is known as the Millionizer brush, consists of multitude of bristles that separates each lash from the other, giving your lashes dense volume. It also has an Excess wiper, which removes excess mascara hence giving your lashes a clot free finish without overloading them.

How did I find it? L’Oreal has never disappointed me with its products. By far, the best product I have in my beauty case as I simply love it.  It definitely proves what it says and I am so proud of myself that I got this amazing product. Its wand/brush is specifically designed to catch and enhance the smallest of your lash which tends to get missed out fairly easily if you have uneven lashes. Also, I found its packaging really appealing and quite different.

Which one would I repurchase? Obviously it’s going to be Volume Million Lashes as it gave my lashes a new dimension and an amazing new look.

Hope you find this review helpful. Feel free to comment below. Till then, stay pretty ... =D
