Revlon Lash Potion - no magic here!

Being a loyal YSL Shocking mascara buyer, when I ran out earlier this month I was devastated - there was no way I could afford that spend this month! If you've read my NOTD post about Revlon Nail Enamel in 'Rich' then you will know that instead, I ended up buying the Revlon Lash Potion.

I got this because I had seen a few of my favourite bloggers/vloggers get it and have such wonderful experiences with it. But me? Not so much. The brush is so much bigger than I anticipated, and actually reminds me a lot of a Collection 2000 mascara (big fat something?!) where the wand and brush are just too big to actually use properly.

The result is above. Just very average and you can even see tiny black specks where the mascara has still managed to get onto my eyelid after being very careful! I think I just expected so much more than it delivered, and for £9.99 it's just not very good - I'd rather buy the excellent Falsies instead at £7.99!

I sadly think this is a case of pretty packaging from a usually great brand, without the great product to match. I'll be trying to use this one up and then I'll be moving on!

PS - there just might be a giveaway starting on Friday so follow me on Bloglovin' to see what it is! ;)


  1. Mascaras can be so hit or miss sometimes, it's disappointing when they don't live up to our expectations! i've never tried this but not being a fan of large brushes i think i will give it a miss! Thanks for the review ! :)

  2. Like you I love the shocking mascara and the falshies. I have been trying this revlon one and can get on with you but the price is very steep!!
