Revlon Lash Potion by Grow Luscious | Review & Swatches

For the past few months I've been giving this mascara a go and I feel like it's finally time to tell you what I think about it. Let's just cut the chitter-chatter that I usually have and just jump straight into the actual review.

This mascara comes with a very large, full wand, which is great for attaining volume in the lashes but not so great for bottom lash application. Though I'd probably prefer a slightly smaller wand, I'll put up with this one because it makes my lashes look pretty great. 
The formula of this mascara is neither too wet nor too dry. For me, it's just the perfect consistency to make your lashes look amazing. It both lengthens while providing great volume, but it doesn't make your lashes look clumpy and disgusting. I usually vary the number of coats I apply between 1 and 2 coats, just depending on how I feel.
This formula is also waterproof, meaning it doesn't usually smudge around your eye. Now, I know that the thought of waterproof mascara might frighten some people with the possibility of ripping out your lashes while trying to remove it. But trust me on this, it comes off no bother whatsoever, which is great.
It isn't so great however, at holding a curl all that well. I don't know if it's my lash curlers or what but my lashes never seem to hold a curl. That's about the only con about this mascara.

Now onto the swatches. I have to say, my lashes weren't cooperating all that well today and they were looking pretty horrible, but please excuse that. Also, I have not filled in my tight-line with an eyeliner or curled my eyelashes but if I had, they would've looked better.

Change. It is something that the majority of us, as a species, rebel against. Sometimes a little change can be for the better, sometimes for the worst, but we will never know until we experience change. I'm not the biggest fan of change because I never know what to expect, just the same as a lot of you, but it is something that I am learning to accept. 
I've had various changes in my life; from school transitions, to friends and now leading onto university. I'm going to have to accept the change that will be happening over the next few years in both my own and my peers' transition to college and university. I'm not going to lie to you and say that it'll be easy not to see the people I have been with every day for the majority of my life, because it won't be, because change usually never is, but this change has to happen. 

I am trying to learn to embrace change rather than resist it, because in my eyes everything happens for a reason. We can't keep resisting the change that happens all the way through our lives because it is going to happen whether we like it or not. 

Thank you for taking time out of your day to read this post, I hope you enjoyed.
