Review: Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara

Okie dokie, so I got bored this weekend so I went through my piles and piles of makeup to see which ones would be worth talking about. After digging through my mascaras, I came upon this green mascara and at first I was like “What the..?” and then it hit me “ooohhhh yeeeahh, that one!”

This is the Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara. It is advertised the first Revlon mascara that helps lashes grow stronger while visibly adding length and volume.

Product: duh…its a mascara 🙂 Basic tube and wand. The wand has elongated, conical shaped synthetic fibers that help add volume and legnth to the lashes.

Pricing: $4-$7 USD depending on location and availability

Overall: This mascara was okay, and I think that is why I forgot about it. I’ve been re-using this mascara for the past week and while it doesn’t give my lashes that dramatic flare that I like, I do appeciate the subtle “naturally pretty lashes” look that it gives me. The wand is ridiculously long and it it longer then my eye, but I think that is what helps coat all the littlle lashes I have on my outter edge, giving me a lovely elongated flared look. As far as helping my lashes grow  stronger, ennngghhh, not so sure, but my lashes do look softer with this product on versus other mascaras.

This picture was taken after a 16 hour work day, and my lashes are still slightly flared at the ends.I would recommend this mascara for those looking for a “natural” but flared kind of look.

Neutrogena Makeup Remover Face Wipes

My fellow bloggers,  I am in a very unhealthy relationship. One week we are very  happy and everything is great but the next week it’s all downhill and I feel like I need to move on and find another. Oh…woops….did I forget to mention I am talking about makeup remover face wipes 🙂

Product: So I am sure most of you know about the Neutrogena Face Wipes by now. They are pre-soaked face wipes that gently and quickly remove all (or at least most) of your makeup. Usually it takes me one and half sheets to get most of the residue off my face and even then I still like to wash my face with a face wash to clean out all my pores. The wipes come in multiple formulations. You can  buy the normal ones, acne  prone cleansing wipes and oil free wipes.

Packaging: The sheets usually come in a plastic box that you can refill with the refill packages,  or you can choose to buy just the refill packets. There are about 25 sheets per refill.

Price: Anywhere form $5 USD and up. It depends on the size of the package, location and availability.

Overall: Ok so here is my dilemma, I really like this product, I think it does a great job on removing my foundation. However, the  price is what gets me. I normally pay about $6.99 for one refill packet and it lasts me about a two to three weeks depending on how much makeup I wear.  This means I invest anywhere from $7- $20/month on just face wipes! Uh…no! It doesn’t seem like a lot to some but for a girl on a STRICT budget, face wipes are a luxury not a necessity. Plus on top of that, I also use normal baby wipes which are 80 wipes per package and cost me $2 USD! So do  I continue to invest in overpriced wipes that do the job or settle for decent baby wipes that I can just wet with eyemakeup remover that work almost as well?

I think I will settle for the baby wipes. 🙂 🙂 🙂
