revlon lash potion mascara

Yesterday was definitely one of those days! I started off really optimistic that I would get lots of photos taken for the blog and get lots of bits done but instead I spent the day eating fudge and cake, feeling sorry for myself with a cold! Not that the fudge and cake are a bad thing though, who doesn't love a bit of sweet goodness to cheer themselves up!

I did manage to take a few photos of a new mascara I picked up on Friday though. As it was payday, I couldn't resist and literally ran to the shops to pick up some new makeup treats! I needed a mascara and as Revlon is on 2 for £10 in Boots I picked up the Lash Potion mascara to try.

I have to admit, I have never really tried Revlon products before. I have heard such good things about their lip butters (I definitely picked up one of these as part of this deal!) but haven't really made the splurge to try Revlon until now.

To be completely honest with you, it was the packaging that made me notice this mascara. The actual tube is metallic purple, pink and green and is so pretty. The tube makes me think of fairies and magic..probably why the mascara is called potion, no flies on me eh?

Revlon claims that this mascara is both volumising and lengthening and for me it definitely provided both. The length of my lashes look lovely with this mascara on, even after the first coat you can see the instant change. My lashes appear a lot thicker, although they did tend to clump slightly in places so I had to be really careful when applying.

The brush has hundreds of tiny little bristles on it which enable you to cover every lash with ease. Personally I like a bit more of a curved brush on a mascara, as I find it a lot easier to apply, but that is just personal preference as the coverage on this is still really good. The colour I chose was Blackest Black, although it comes in Blackened Brown too. I wasn't looking properly and ended up getting the non-waterproof version but it does come in waterproof too. So just make sure you double check whichever one you are after!

For the price, this mascara is really good. It does everything it claims to do and looks so pretty as well!
