It's been a while since I talked about mascara here, eh? This time I want you to meet Revlon's newest called the Grow Luscious Plumping Mascara (price TBA). It will be available starting next month, so this is sort of like a first look for all you mascara fans out there.
I really liked its predecessor, the Revlon Grow Luscious Fabulash so naturally I was curious about what this mascara can do! To start off, the main difference between the two is the wand. The Plumping Mascara has a smaller wand with an edge that tapers off, making it easier to maneuver around the lashes compared to Fabulash.
Formula-wise, they're very similar, except that Fabulash adds a bit more length.
Finish and texture. The Plumping Mascara delivers thick, black lashes in one coat. The formula is goopy so you don't have to layer so much to get vavoom lashes, but if you want something really dramatic, two coats will do the job.
It does have a tendency to get clumpy though, so work fast and use as little strokes as you can manage. Oh, I also don't like that it takes a while to dry.

Super duper easy to remove. This is my absolute favorite feature when it comes to mascara - the Plumping Mascara is water-soluble, meaning you can wash it off with tap water. Even so, it doesn't easily melt down with normal oil and sweat. It smudges but it's manageable. Take care not to cry in it though!
I know that sounds counter-intuitive but sometimes I just want a fuss-free mascara that I'll only use for a few hours. Thus, I don't need it to be budge-proof.
Manageable wand. The wand is bigger than the usual, but it's easy to work with because the edge is tapered. You can use it to get into those hard-to-reach lashes near the corners of your eyes.
Recommendations. Go for the Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping Mascara if you want something that's easy to take off, something you don't intend to use for more than five hours. However, if you need something that will stay on you ALL DAY, there are other mascaras to try (they're quite a challenge to remove though, so that's the pay off).
Verdict. I like it. A lot. I'll be turning to this product as my go-to quickie mascara, the same way I did with my old Fabulash. ;)
