I really wanted to like this mascara. I love Rimmel and have always had a great experience with their products. First of though, I do like the wand. Its not too thick and I like how the bristles were distributed. However, I found that the formula was too watery and it took FOREVER to dry. Throughout the day, it kept on bleeding through my under eye area as well. Also, it felt really heavy on my eyelashes. I only put on 2 light coats of it and it flattened the curl out of my eyelashes which was really antagonizing because I have short straight Asian lashes and it takes a lot of work to get my lashes to curl. Maybe I just bought a bad one since many people like it but I'm too frustrated with it to try again.
Great Mascara. I don't believe it has any affect on growing lashes longer but it lengthens & volumizes really well. For me the best quality about this mascara is its lifespan, it lasts AGES before being too dry/clumpy to use anymore. I love that, great value for money.
I absolutely love this mascara!
Pros: No clumping, lashes feel soft, no more breakage (yay!), packaging is decent
Cons: Nada! Well unless you count the fact that it doesnt make your lashes grow... But come on people! What drugstore mascara really does that??!?? It's just basic common sense.
Would I buy again? Well of course!
I think this mascara is brill! It gives you super long, defined, and dark eyelashes. As for the lash growth complex, I didn't notice any change in my lashes and I have some friends who use this and they haven't noticed a change either, which is quite bad really, as that is what it says it is supposed to do. I like how it makes my eyelashes feel so silky and smooth, like your wearing long falsies. This doesn't give much curl which is what I need as my eyelashes are flat as a pancake, but if you use a cheapy eyelash curler before the results are amazing. I adore the packaging (apart from the lettering rubs off quickly!) it is quite pricey in Wales (UK) about 7-8 pounds which on my budget is a bit too much, good product though!
I have to say I do like this. The formula isn't too thick and makes my lashes look longer and slightly fuller. I can put on 2 coats with no clumping (haven't tried more). I'm not crazy about the brush - I find it awkward. But the thin end does get the small lashes in the corner of my eyes. I'm just not sure why one side of the brush is flat. It's mostly just a small nuisance because I have to look for the the round side instead of just pulling it out and using it. Can't yet attest to the actual lengthening powers of the mascara and frankly I don't have high hopes anyway- its still just a drug store mascara! A good price though ($7) and a good formula. I might buy it again - I like to try new ones a lot but if nothing else looks good I'd pick this one up.
Edit - I've also noticed that less lashes are falling out. I've noticed 1 (!) so far, and typically I might notice 2 or 3. Could just be an eyelash cycle thing? Who knows. I still like this mascara and think it's worth trying.
This Rimmel mascara is the best I have ever used! It is replacing my Definicils(used with Cils Booster xl). I've learned about this mascara from youtube makeup gurus who raved about it. So out I went to the closest CVS to buy it and I'm so glad I did!
This is much cheaper than Lancome Definils but it performs way better for me. My eyelashes are lifted, separated, defined, volumized and gave me super looong lashes! They almost look fake and I only coat 2 times, if I want an even more dramatic look I put 3 coats but no more than that as it will start getting clumpy. It does take a bit longer to dry than regular mascaras but this is not a problem nor a deal breaker really.
About the lash growth feature, I've been using this for almost a month now. I noticed my lashes are darker and have more curl to it. My right eye definitely have grown longer lashes especially at the outer corner but my left eye not as much. Hope it will catch up eventually. >.<
Anyway, this is a very good quality mascara IMO and will save me a few bucks without downgrading. To me, this is an upgrade.
I am happy enough with this that I feel no need to stray and try other mascaras. What i look for in a mascara is length and definition, and this fits the bill. Bought both the full and the tapered brush. I like both equally. When the time comes I will definately be repurchasing this.
Makes my lashes appear longer (but doesn't really make them much longer). Flakes a bit around my eyes. I also like the wand.
I like wearing this formula at work during the day since it makes my lashes more noticeable, but, nothing too obvious (this isn't a voluminous mascara).
This stuff is awesome! First of all it does what it says instantly, it gives loads of length but unlike most lengthening mascaras it adds a good amount of volume too! You really only need one coat of this and it's also really good at defining, it looks like I have loads of lashes! So the other part of this product is the "lash growth" treatment. Here's the thing it says to give it a month, it's been a week and already I've noticed a big improvement. First of all only one lash has fallen out since I started (I pulled on it, my fault) and my eyelashes are super soft and definetly longer like it's really noticeable I'm not sure they'll get to 121% longer, that's crazy but there's a big improvement and it's only been a week! I have to say I do miss using waterproof like I usually do but only because I often sleep in my makeup. (yeah, yeah I know it's bad whatever.) and in the morning i have flakes all over my face, which with waterproof dosn't happen. Anyway I get that I bring those flakes on myself for sleeping in my makeup and aside from this I can live without waterproof since this holds curl, lasts 12+ hours and so far hasn't spazzed all over my face at the first sign of water. Some extra info, the wand is a Teddy bear brush very thin but a little too long, and there's always that awkward glob at the end that gets on my eyelid even if I try wiping it off. That and that the packaging is ugly are my only complaints. The bottle's brown with this fugly green metallic, I mean why can't the bottle be pretty too :(
This isn't the worst mascara I have tried but its not one of my favorites.I didn't notice any eyelash growth from using it nor did my lashes look long and thick when I had it on.It was average at best.
