Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping Mascara Review

Today I will be reviewing the mascara that I showed in my Target haul a few weeks ago called the Revlon Grown Luscious Plumping Mascara. I have the color Blackest Black and it is water proof.


On the packaging this mascara claims to "plump lashes for maximum volume". On the back of the package it says that the formula had a lash enhancing complex that will grow your eyelashes.

Here is a picture of the wand. It has a triangular shape with and has regular brush bristles.

I wasn't really sure about the claims this mascara was making when I first bought it. I thought, "how could a mascara grow your eyelashes?" I was definitely proven wrong when I tried this though. I probably should have taken a before and after picture of my eyelashes before and after I used this. My eyelashes didn't necessarily grow longer, but they have been looking thicker. I am sure that it is this product, because it is the only new thing I'm using. It doesn't give my eyelashes the best appearance when it is on though, so I am kind of neutral about this mascara. Here are my pros and cons:

Pros: -made my lashes grow
-cheap
-gave me volume and a little length
-didn't get clumpy after 2 coats
-easy to get off even though it is water-proof
-eyelashes don't feel hard/crunchy

Cons:
-This flakes a lot!
-The stopper is horrible, and I have to scrape lots of product off the wand before I use it


Here is a picture of my bare eyelashes:


And with the mascara on:

The pros outweigh the cons with this mascara, however, I feel like I could get a better mascara from the drugstore. It isn't bad, but it isn't the best mascara either. I will continue to use this, but I do not think I will be repurchasing it. I wish it was more long lasting and less flaky. I did get this on sale though for $2.48 so it was good for that price. I wouldn't recommend paying full price for this one, but if you see it for as cheap as I got mine, it may be worth trying. Overall I give this a 6.5 out of 10.
