Mascara Monday: Rimmel Glam ‘Eyes mascara

Happy Monday, people! Can yall believe that on Saturday it was a 75 degrees here in Orlando, Florida? I know some of you are shooting me cyber birds but I am finding it so hard to get into the holiday spirit while blasting my air conditioning. Would I like 4 feet of snow? Noooo. But can a sista pull out the knee high boots? Obviously not!

I want to send mad love to the 89 of you who voted for this Mascara Monday’s mascara. Rimmel’s Glam ‘Eyes won by a landslide. Which I am grateful for because I would have been crying had yall voted for that $38 Lancome Oscillation. *wipes freshly threaded brows* Let’s bring on the review!

Rimmel Glam’Eyes Mascara

Price: 5 out of 5 ($7.29 from Ulta)
Packaging (Brush Wand): 3 out of 5
Overall: 4 out of 5

What it claims: “Seductive Volume. Turn heads. New VolumFlex Brush styles lashes for sensational volume and instant separation. Ultra supple elasto-bristles groom each lash, lacquering them from root to tip for a spectacular 7 x more lash intensity. Big Lash Seduction. High Definition. Maximum lash impact. Impeccable definition. Smoothing formula glides through lashes, wrapping each one for ultimate volume yet perfect separation. Lashes look dramatically amplified yet sleekly defined – even up close and personal!”

The truth: Could it be? Am I getting a little curl factor? Heyyyyy!

What I loved about it:
I’m amazed at how this mascara gave me a little curl. Now it could be my imagination. Or perhaps my lashes were already curled from the previous days’ pumps of a eyelash curler. But…I think Glam ‘Eyes did more than give me a little volume and I was excited about it! I’m diggin’ the wand too. Nothing too fancy but it was sturdy and the bristles were long enough to get my lashes without me darn-near poking my eye out.

What I didn’t like: Well, I wasn’t too WOWed by this mascara at first. As I mentioned in the video, I haven’t heard much about it. In fact, if it weren’t for readers and their requests, I probably would have never considered this mascara for review. I guess that’s not a reason to NOT like it so let’s move on..LOL!

Overall: I would say that Glam ‘Eyes does a pretty darn good job as far as volumizing mascaras go. Is it super duper OMG “this is it!” amazing? Nah, I wouldn’t say that. But it’s pretty good. I found it to be light on my lashes and build-able. Even after 3 coats, I didn’t have the “too much mascara on” look and I didn’t endure any flakes either. As I mentioned earlier, I really do think that this mascara gave me some curl…You can see for yourself in the video.

Would I recommend it?: Yep! I think you volume-seekin’ folx out there would enjoy Glam Eyes. Now be honest….do yall see some curl in my lashes? I do think so!!

    Amina–> Anytime, love. :)

    TPBC–> Hmm, then this may not be the mascara for you. It's only "okay" on length. But I feel you–I LOVE length!

    Nikki–> I love you, sister! And I'm shocked that Rimmel isn't in the Philippines. :(

    Britney–>Wow, what a beautiful name. LOL! Thanks for commenting! That liner is by Urban Decay. It's their 25/7 pencil liner in Electric. Check 'em out:

    NaturallyAlise–> Check Britney's response. :)

    Connie: I'm starting to grab for it more too!

    Anon–> Yay!! Let me know how you like it.

    I’ve been lookin for a new mascara to try…gettin kinda bored with Lashblast and Volume Exact, great but I love to switch it up!! =) And that flat iron! Lovely =)

  • Bella

    I *puffy heart* Rimmel. Sadly, Seattle carries the minimum of their line darnit; so I get left out of many of their innovations.

    I shall buy it during my Mexico trip and get all curly hermana, thanks!!!

  • *Jen*

    B you’ve reviewed yet another mascara I’ve been wanting to try! I’m a sucker for a curling mascara so this is going on my list.

    Hope you’ve been keeping warm these past few months!

  • Fashion’s Darling

  • Product Junkie Diva

  • SuzieC

    I’ve heard good things about Rimmel mascara, I just might check it out.

  • Tonisha

    Yes…there is curl in your lashes! I can’t wait to try it. My lashes are so sparse that all I seek is volumizing mascara. Thanks for the review!!

  • Grayburn

    Sounds interesting and looks great on you. Does it last, flake, smudge?

    Wow, thanks for reviewing this one. I had this for a month and I Love it! It makes my eyelashes look like little strips of falsies. It took me some practices to get the result, but it’s worth it! it does maintain the curl my shu’s curler gave me. this is a winner for me, though it doesn’t get cleaner definition than Dior iconic it gives off better results.

  • ladebelle

    love it… so happy i’ve subscribed!!!

    have you tried the new l’oreal lash extend? maybe you’ve written a blog about it that i haven’t seen.

  • Fall04Ace

    I bought this and mine clumps up like crazy. But it does well for the price. I’m gonna try Maybelline’s Stiletto or Max Factor Coutour Waterproof next.

    BY THE WAY – LOVE THIS SITE! I just found it last week and my whole sorority chapter now knows that it is the BUSINESS!
