Once upon a time and many many moons ago, I fell in love with Rimmel’s Lash Acceleraor. I mean, I was head over heels in love with that mascara. For at least 6 months, every time someone asked me what my favorite mascara was I would blurt out “Rimmel Lash Accelerator!” with full fervor and conviction. I adored that mascara. And time has passed and it looks like Good ole’ Lash Accelerator has a sibling. I had high high hopes for Lash Accelerator Endless.
I mean, HIGH hopes!
Price: $8.99 from CVS stores and CVS.com
Packaging (brush wand): 5 out of 5
Overall: 5 out of 5
What It Claims: “Our first ultra lengthening mascara that defies the laws of lash length defies limits, has a formula with Micro-Fibres and Grow-Lash Complex and grabs every lash for perfect separation with no clumps!” (source)
The Truth: In.Love
What I Loved About It: This mascara has such a nice and thick formula. One coat is really all I needed to get such luscious lashes.
What I Didn’t Like: Because of that thick formula, clumping is definitely bound to happen. And you know how I feel about about clumps of mascara. 😎
Overall: The original Lash Accelerator mascara was launched over 3 years ago and while it has been a very long time since I’ve tried it, its awesomeness will forever be etched in my memory. You see, this mascara did amazing things. Its ability to provide length and volume was fantastic but it also had a really cool brush. I feel like Rimmel took that mascara, sent it to boot camp and the result is Lash Accelerator Endless. I love everything about the mascara. The wand is just…great!
I know old skool mascara heads often prefer the brush-style wand over the plastic wand and I do too sometimes but for this mascara, it works! The formula is a bit on the thicker side and a brush wand would really distribute more mascara than you’d like on your lashes. This plastic wand has such long and stiff bristles that it makes applying to the lashes ridiculously easy.
And because of that thick formula, you can really get away with applying just one coat. But of course I’m a rebel so I pushed it to two and even then, the mascara still applied with ease with only minimal clumping around the corners of my lashes. I really have no complaints about this mascara. It does everything you’d want your mascara to do. It applies with ease, it stays put all day and it gives you a great amount of volume and length. The claims say that with extended use it’ll help grow the lashes longer and of course I’ll never know that since I only test mascaras for a week at a time. But still..it’s a great incentive to keep using it!
I’m so glad to see that Rimmel did the Lash Accelerator name right. I am so in love with this baby!
Lashes after 3 coats
Do I recommend it?: Heck yeah! And I’ll be recommending it as much as I recommended the previous Lash Accelerator.
I can’t believe I am just now reviewing this mascara but man, it really is as awesome as everyone has said. Have you tried it?
