I love mascara requests.
I mean….they literally light up my inbox. While quite a bit of you have been requesting throwback mascaras, this week I got a ton of requests for Rimmel’s newest. Which is interesting because I wasn’t even going to review it! But the people have spoken so here it is…..
Price: 5 out of 5 (I got it for $7.29 at CVS)
Packaging (Brush Wand): 4 out of 5
Overall: 5 out of 5
What it claims: Check out the packaging!
The truth: Okay….so 80% is a dramatic claim but it ain’t too shabby.
What I loved about it: The wand is pretty amazing. The bristles are GREAT for separating. Especially if you have those crazy tangled lashes like I do. They are stiff and thin enough to get through the lashes. But I don’t like about the wand is that it is a little too “wobbly”. Flexible=good. Bo-yoing-yoing factor? Not so much? But it doesn’t cause TOO much of a problem.
What I didn’t like: I would have liked some more volume. Especially since that’s what the mascara said it’s going to do. To make up for the volume….I got insane length.
Overall: I reviewed the original Glam Eyes here. What I am finding with the Rimmel mascaras that I review is that they ALL give me what I’m NOT looking for. Which I suppose is better than it giving me nothing at all. This Lash Flirt is pretty darn good. It really gets your lashes out there and guess what? It’s build-able! Go ‘head and apply a 3rd coat. Or a 4th coat if you’re a rebel. You won’t get crazy ‘clumps of mascara’…haha. I did experience smudging (watch the video to see what I mean) but then again that could be my own clumsiness.
Has anyone tried this mascara yet?
Interested? Not so much? Whatcha think?
