After a string of not-so-great mascaras, Grow Luscious was a welcome change of pace. I found this diamond in the rough at Big Lots for $4 that came with a black single eyeshadow (which was so-so, but I suppose that's for another review!). I wasn't that impressed when I first began using this, but sometimes mascaras need a little bit of use before they reach their full potential. I love the oversized classic brush...those seem to work the best with my lashes. The biggest draw of this mascara for me is the volume without clumping. The length is nice, too, but I love the volume. It instantly transforms my short, blonde lashes to beautiful dark "luscious" ones.
In terms of long term lengthening effects, I didn't notice any of that (hence why I decided to knock off a star). Frankly, I don't really believe in any mascaras that claim to do that (I think it's kind of gimmicky), but I'd purchase this mascara anyway simply because it does an excellent job of just being a mascara. Would definitely purchase again :)
Grow Luscious is great! It's certainly one of my go-to eye mascara. It works extremely well for me & I immediately saw results. Right away, my eyelashes were volumized from roots to tips, lengthened, & looking amazing. As somebody who cannot stand piling on mascara, I'm really glad that with one or two coats, it gets the job done. This didn't get flaky, clumpy, or squiggly.
The packaging is gorgeous. The tube is a nice emerald colour & with silver detail. I personally don't mind how long the wand is or how big the brush is. Then again, my eyes are huge so maybe I can just accommodate is. Sadly, this mascara was almost $10 & that's pricy for drugstore mascara—especially for one that may or may not work. Thankfully, I like it & it was worth the cost.
Note: I'm not sure if this matters to anybody, but I ONLY wear black mascara & this mascara in 001 Blackest Black is perfect - the colour is true & dramatic.
I love this mascara, it works wonders on my lashes making them appear longer and thicker without clumping. The brush is huge like many people stated, but this really doesn't bother me, however I do have big eyes. I would imagine if you had small eyes, or very small lashes this big brush would not work well for you. The black colour of this mascara is also nice and dark adding a little extra omph. I don't know that I would pick this mascara for a night out, but for every day or to layer with more dramatic mascaras at night time this is fantastic. As for the claims of making my lashes grow, I have no idea and to be honest probably not. Also the price was very good as it came in a package with the revlon colorstay eye liner as well. I will definitely repurchase.
I can understand both the negative and positive reviews of this one, and was sceptical at first but am now a fan!
Why I like it: it highlights every single lash so kind of makes it look like I have more eyelashes (usually my mascaras, even high end ones do the opposite!) and coates them beautifully. Theres no clumping, average smudging. Also it doesnt irritate my eyes like so many others do. As for growth, I cant tell yet..
I found this mascara just alright, didn't do much for my lashes. Had no effect on the "growth" or anything (I expected that). I don't like it & I don't dislike this product. I actually paid 3 dollers & it came along with one of revlons eyeshadows...So it was well worth it I guess...
makes my lashes fall out. threw it away. from what i understand every eyelash has about a 100days life cycle. i personally notice about 2 falling out every week or so when i take off my make up. since i bought this masacra at least 5 come out at a time in friggen clumps and its not even when im taking off my makeup. it doesnt make mine longer just speeds up the growth cycle.
i have this in the waterproof version cause my lashes cant hold a curl for crap with just a regular mascara but anyways it did keep my curl but after awhile it started to smudge and flake at the same time! ??????? why??? i dont know. i did like the brush because i like big brushes but i didnt notice any thickness or length i think it's just a regular old mascara. oh and it didnt help with fall outs like with my eyelashes from falling. i do however like how black it is though. will not buy again
REVLON Grow Luscious by Fabulash mascara in 001 Blackest Black
This is the fabulash in the green tube. I was a big fan of the original fabulash, so tried this when it first came out –it’s been one of about 3 mascaras that I really love (and the least expensive of the three). This mascara lasts all day (and through the night), even through walking around Afghanistan for hours, it doesn’t flake or smudge or irritate my eyes. I’ve slept with it on & in the morning, I still look like I have mascara on my eyes, I don’t have clumps (of course I have have some smudges, but it’s easy to wipe those off & still look halfway decent), and my lashes aren’t crunched up & haven’t fallen out. The formula is a lighter formula that coats the lashes without being clumpy. Throughout the day, lashes are firm, but not brittle. Touchable. The brush is definitely oversized – which I thought would be a problem because I have some really short lashes on the inner corners – but it’s tapered on the end so it’s still usable for the tiny lashes. The mascara gives the lashes a little curl, but nothing to rave about. Lengthening is the same as any mascara – put black paint over blonde tips & eyelashes look longer (duh). The mascara does separate lashes very well giving the illusion of volume both in the thick of the lashes (in the middle) and on the sides (inside & outside). Just so you know, TWICE this mascara has been picked over a different favorite mascara in a blind “which eye has better lashes?” test… Once by me on my friend, and once by a male friend on my eyes. This is my DS HG mascara & beats out most others, I would keep this in rotation with my other two HG mascara (Clinique). If I had to lower my MU budget, I wouldn’t feel begrudged at all about having to use this mascara exclusively. I will buy this again & again.
My lashes are normally long, but i thought id give it a try because ive heard that it makes them look thick and can be even longer. It did do its job to a point. The wand is too long. Also it gets clumpy quick, the tube doesnt have to much of a sifter or something to stop the clumps.I use it everyday because i wnt to get my moneys worth (I went to CVS and bought it there...it was 10 dollars! Never getting it from there again. Back to walmart for me!) but i dont think ill buy it again. Also the tube doesnt have to much of a sifter or something to stop the clumps. I dont understand it. I have to keep looking i guess.
First off I am shocked with all the not so good reviews from others! I think this is the best mascara you can purchase in drug stores and it has become my HG/Holy grail!! I have tried many high end mascara's one being the most expensive Yves Saint Laurent. And honestly GL works better than all the high end mascara's I've used. I had a small little patch where there were lashes that looked like they had been cut with scissors cause they were much shorter than all the other lashes surrounding them on my eye. So after using GL for about a week I noticed those little lashes actually getting longer to match the length of the rest of my lashes. Now I've been using this mascara for 2 months and my lashes are MUCH longer. This mascara does not flake or clump up on me and has not dried out yet! Which is a huge plus! So many mascara's I've tried last for maybe 4 weeks 6 weeks at most before the tube completely dries out. The fact the wand on this is larger is a plus because for me it gets the whole strip of my lashes in one swipe as opposed to doing sections with the wand like outter corner then the inner corner. Overall this mascara is just AMAZING!!
