Mascara: Maxfactor Xperience Volumising Mascara and Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara

Maxfactor Xperience Volumising Mascara in Black is a deep black mascara from the Xperience range. As claimed by the product formulation to be mousse like, I find it between wet and dry. This texture does not make the lashes heavy, just coats them extra black color. Dries fast. Also it does not clump and keeps the lashes looking natural, no gathering. The brush has short bristles with very defined gaps which actually combs the lashes in good manner.  The brush picks precise amount of mascara at one time. The brush is not helpful for lower lashes. The mascara is not waterproof and removal is easy.

About the volumising part, it does not help much in one coat. But the brush and mousse texture helps here, I apply 2-3 coats without clumping which gives some length and volume. The packaging is classic and the wand could easily be rotated to coat the lashes nicely.

Recommendation - Maxfactor Xperience Volumising Mascara is the perfect daytime mascara. Application is easy and no dramatic lashes. Good to go for office, work and fast schedules. Very happy go lucky mascara.

Revlon Grow Luscious Mascara by Fabulash in Blackest Black is deep black mascara, claims to condition the lashes to become stronger and lusher. The texture is wet which does not dry fast. It has a traditional brush, long and dense bristles which picks up good amount of mascara, I have to wipe off extra. However, on application there is no clumping. It requires 2 coats to deposit well and add some drama. It also applies well on lower lashes. This is not waterproof but takes some effort to remove.The packaging is stylish, looks good in hand and this is a big fat tube. 

About the claims of Grow Luscious, I have to use it longer to see any growth.

Recommendation - This is a traditional mascara in good packaging, one coat is good enough for daytime and 2-3 coats for the evening.

Tip - I softly wiggle the mascara brush at the roots and then straight to tip, it gives denser look.


  1. Oh I hope Grow Luscious works out :o

    I tried it and I think I got a bad tube? It was all dry and crumbly -.-


  2. Grow luscious is a good mascara for its price. After applying it, I wait for it to dry. Your tube may be old, just check. :)
