I bought this because allure said it was a good drugstore find and who isn't looking for a good deal. Went to the nearest drugstore and picked up one, at the time they had a sale on rimmel eye products buy one get on free so I got one for my cousin. When I first used it i was in a rush out the door but boy was I dissapointed. I ended up just putting it in my makeup bag and forgetting about it until the other day. This time around however, I used it after using an eyelash curler and wow, much much much better results than before. Shout out to Shu Uemura eyelash curler!
I was very pleasantly surprised by this mascara! I forgot my makeup bag one day and headed to the drug store for the basics - this one was cheap and I'd heard good things about it and thought I'd try.
It does a really good job of separating and defining the lashes.
The brush is narrower on the end so its easy to get in the corners too.
Will definitely buy this again, especially for 6 bucks.
Ive been looking for an affordable mascara - and my only criteria is volume.. This ones got cute packaging, but its useless!! Ended up with a total "spider lash effect" & clumps & little volume. :( Very disappointed!
Not the worst mascara, that's for sure. Cute tube, by the way. This didn't make my lashes seem thicker, but it did make them look longer, which they didn't need. It didn't clump, but it did give me the spider lash effect. What I really like though is that it goes on dark dark black and doesn't have any sparkle. I like to use this on top of other mascaras like the falsies and lashblast luxe.
Cute color but poor product. It didn't make my lashes look full or longer, just clumpy.
I decided to try this mascara out after watching reviews on youtube from people saying that this was a really good mascara. They were wrong!! First of all, the mascara is very thick and clumpy, and makes my lashes stick together in one big clump! The brush is nothing special, just a regular old brush, however it is easy to get into the inner corner of your eye for those smaller lashes. The product flakes on my lashes after a couple of hours. However, there is a good side to this product, it is the only non-waterproof mascara that I have tried that actually holds a curl! I won't be buying this again though, will save my money and buy a better brand.
Oh well, after I was so sad that I ran out of my beloved Covergirl Lashblast ( I live in Germany, you can't buy I here, my brother got this for me when he went to the US ). I looked for a good alternative that is available in germany as well. Usually I like to check out the youtube reviews, and a lot of the girls there seemed to like the rimmel one a lot. At first I wanted to purchase the sexy curves one but I changed my mind eventually and got this one instead, maybe because my favorite color is pink and this tube is hands down super flashy. So I was all excited and such but then I tried it out and was majorly disappoited. This isn't necessarily a bad mascara, it just didn't do anything for my lashes. They got very clump and they stick all together..no volume no length and I found you need a lot a lot a lot of coats for this mascara to even show up. Not happy with this, will not buy this again!
Purchased the waterproof formula and it still returned my eyelashes to their stick straight asian roots haha. Also had a really wet consistency and was a real disappointment for such cute packaging :[
Eh - this isn't a bad mascara and it definitely provides pretty good lenghth, it just didn't "wow" me. And as for the color "extreme black"...it just looks black to me. I am a "blonde" (I highlight my hair) so my lashes aren't really dark or really light either. But sometimes I want really dark lashes for drama and to draw more attention to my eyes, and this mascara doesn't do that.
In summary :)
Creates good length, not a ton of volume and the extreme black is not a great way to describe the color b/c there's nothing extreme about it.
For reference, I only use mascara on my lower lashes- I prefer to wear false lashes because my upper lashes hold no curl or volume. Anywho, when it comes to my lower lashes I find most mascara wands very tricky to use or the formula just doesn't work. Recently, I was loving Maybelline 'The Falsies' but after a few hours, it would smudge and clump which was irritating. I decided to try the Waterproof version of this to avoid smuding, not to mention it was super inexpensive :) ...Ladies, if you want your lower lashes to look full, dark and without any clumping this mascara will do the trick! The wand is easy to work with, and its easy to layer if you want a thicker look ( I also use this on my upper lashes to bond my falsies). Its beens quite awhile since I tried Rimmel mascara's, and I think I will stick to them :) the only downside is that after application, you must wait for this to dry for a few moments or it will transer under your eyes. All in all, this is fab and I will repurchase!
