Review of Rimmel Volume Flash the MAX Waterproof by desertmom4
Let me start off by saying I have sparse lashes. I need volume more than I need length, and when I ran out my current mascara ( CG LB), I decided to try something different. I picked up this Rimmel mascara as the name " volume flash the MAX waterproof" seemed to fit the bill for my lash needs. Besides the hot pink packaging suckered me...love pink! lol.
This mascara did give my sparse lashes volume without clumping. I used 2-3 coats. I was impressed with the results, but my complaint comes with the fact that this masacra is too "wet". Meaning, it coated my lashes fine as the brush picked up enough product when pulled from the tube, but the formula itself was wet to where it took FOREVER to dry. When I'd blink, it would transfer to under my eye area. I let a few minutes pass, as I do my eyes 1st, then my foundation, then back to do my lower lash line with liner and mascara, and when I got to the point of doing my lower lash, the mascara from the top still was wet & smudged underneath. What a PITA to clean it up!
Needless to say, I used up the tube as I didn't want to waste my $, but I will not repurchase. I will stick with my trusty CG LB.
