The latest craze to hit the mascara world is the inclusion of lash enhancing scientific things in mascaras. Lancome released their Precious Cells mascara a few months ago, and now the trend has trickled down into the lower end of the market, and two such products promising fuller, thicker, softer, more magic lashes are the Rimmel Lash Acclerator mascara, and the Revlon Grow Luscious mascara. Here they are:
Boots, and they were both on offer. I think the Revlon Grow Luscious was £7.99 and the Rimmel Lash Accelerator was £6.99. I have never used a Revlon mascara before, and have traditionally hated all the Rimmel ones I've used in the past, so I was curious to see how these would work out.
First thing to notice is the difference in wand size: the Revlon wand is bigger; I prefer larger wands - I just feel like I'm getting a fuller finish rather than spidery spiky lashes, which I hate. Both wands are brushes, rather than plastic ones.
Here are a couple of shots of my nude lashes:
As you can see, my lashes are a reasonably length, so it's always volume I look for in a mascara. They are a bit patchy in places too, so I'm hoping one or both of these mascaras might rectify that problem.

Have you tried these or similar mascaras? What do you think?
