When the Lash Potion first came out I couldn’t resist going to pick it up. The almost sparkly like packaging, pink lid and just general prettiness drew me in. Especially as it was on a 2 for £10 offer when it first came out and it was £9.99 on it it’s own. The other item I picked up was Mauve it Over lipstick which I absolutely love (review here).
Lash potion is meant to me a volume and lengthening mascara. What more could a girl ask for. Knowing L didn’t get on with grow luscious I was a bit dubious.
As I already said above I love the packaging. It’s girly without being tacky. It just makes me think of magic almost and then makes me think the mascara must be amazing!
The brush is my favourite type of brush. I’m definitely a bristle over plastic brush type of girl. I just find they work much better on my lashes. It’s a standard size and shape brush. Nothing fancy or initiative here.
Here is two coats of the mascara. The first picture shows the lift it gives my lashes. I wash surprised by this. I hadn’t used eyelash curlers yesterday when I took the photos to show the curl it gives. I love how it perfectly separates the lashes and doesn’t clump.
I find it gives my lashes a good amount of volume for everyday without it being over the top. It’s easy to apply without clumping and definitely helps them to appear longer. As the day goes on I do find my lashes become more fluttery and some of the mascara does come off. One of my bad habits is picking at my mascara at the end of the day and this is one of those that does come off. So rubbing tired eyes with this on does give my slight panda effect.
I do also find I can only wear this as a top lash mascara. Not a huge problem for me as for ages I always used a different bottom lash mascara. I find it leaves black smudges in my concealer if I apply it to my bottom lashes. As the photo above shows I also find it transfers to my upper lash line and is visible if I wear it and I’m not wearing eyeshadow.
I do like the effect of the mascara but it’s tendency to transfer does put me off. I will probably pick up the waterproof version to try at some point as it is a good everyday mascara that gives reasonable volume, curl and length all in one which can be hard to find.
Have you tried Lash Potion? Did you have any transfer issues?
