I love volumising mascaras but was let down by this - it was so thin - even with two coats you could hardly notice I was wearing any mascara. It does add length though so I'll give it credit for that. I have found it to be very good for my bottom lashes - it makes them look longer and the brush is a good size for applying there however for dramatic top lashes it's rubbish!
brilliant! you notice a difference within days. i'm blonde and it actually made my lashes look ok for once without mascara even on! i aplly it twice a day once in the morning aqnd then at night. and i've foud it works well as a base under mascara too.
This is great for thickening - I love long eyelashes but they are fine as I'm naturally blonde. I found the product performed at it's best two weeks in - I always find mascaras tend to thicken out after a few weeks and this is when they work best for me. Length wise it worked too and my eyelashes almost reached my eyebrows!
AWFUL! not only is it gunky and VERY dry - it's a hard brush to twist or whirl around as you apply the mascara and despite not being waterproof it is difficult to remove and left my lashes feeling dry and damaged. DO NOT BUY.

This is a complete waste of money - I have never, ever used a mascara that dries up so quickly - I literally got 10 days use out of it and then gave up as it had dired out too much and became cakey.

I have this lipstick in Pikberry and have been using this colour for years. It lasts for ages and I only need to replace it every six months. It is the most mosturising lipstick I have ever used - lovely texture - not gloopy and smells nice. The colour is neutral and flatters all skin tones and colours. A must have.
i am in two minds when reviewing this product. as an eyeshadow used on its own it's rubbish. it has a gloopy consistency - goes on unevenly - cakes and it very heavy on the eyelid. however - determined not to have wasted my money on this product i started experimenting with this product and when it's applied with your fingertips over a matt powder eyeshadow it looks brilliant - i applied a matt navy blue chanel eyeshadow first and then patted the rimmel colous mousse gently over the top and it intensified the colour of the chanel shade, gave it a really glossy and shiney sparkly finish and gave it thar "wet" look i really like sometimes on eyelids. i also used it as a subtle highlighter on my cleavage, cupids bow and upper cheekbones.

this product is awful - i applied some this morning and within one hour it had literally melted/disappeared. it smudges really badly also. i also experienced the same problems with the LM eyeliner pencil. i made the huge mistake of going into Space NK and being lured and intimidated by a sales assistant into spending a fortune of theses terrible products. i shall now to stick to what is good, e.g estee lauder, mac and chanel.

AWFUL, AWFUL, AWFUL! please do not by this porduct. i'm so annoyed that i wasted good money on this product. it is quite possibly the "thinnest" mascara i have ever used. it made no difference to my eyelashes at all and actually made my eyelashes look smaller and finer. it also smudged very badly. the worst mascara i've ever tried.
