Revlon Lash Potion Mascara Review

Mascara. The number one bought cosmetic, and something seen as more or less an essential to most women, I can safely say I am accumulating a fair few. When scanning my local Boots aisles, this one caught my eye. Not only does it look like it belongs to a unicorn, but it also boasts lash strengthening properties, with Revlon being one of my favourite high street beauty brands, and when thinking about it never having tried a Revlon mascara, it found itself in my possession and being put to the test.

What the product looks like, this product retails for £7.99

The brush is a traditional 'hairy' type brush, but has three sections where the bristles are longer, making it easy to grab the lash and build up the product. I really like the brush, I tend to to get on with this type a little better and I like how you can really get in there at the roots to get really big a voluminous lashes. An issue I do have with this product is way too much product is on the brush, I understand the more and more I use this, it will become less of a problem but I do find it a real pain having to scrape off the majority of product so I can avoid looking like a panda from the get go. If you're a eyelash curling type of girl, then this is a great drugstore mascara to consider, as I found even through a hard days graft my eyelashes were still curled and holding up like a dream. In general this is a great mascara for your top lashes, but with the bottom ones is where my main gripe lies with this product. On me it flaked down to my socket bone and wore off making me look quite worn out and tired and my make up all smudgy. When I switched out my mascara on the bottom lashes to another bottom lash mascara, I found these problems largely reduced, I guess it is just up to you whether you can be bothered with two mascaras or not.

I would definitely recommend this this mascara, as I do really like it, but it does have it's faults. If you have a mascara you particularly like on your bottom lashes, or maybe like the look of no mascara on the bottom, then snap this up super quick, but if you're a one mascara at a time type of girl, and work in a hot and sweaty environment like me, then I would be cautious with this one, I'm toying with the idea of picking up the waterproof version of this as I love the way it looks!!

What is your favourite mascara?!
