The Review | Rimmel Volume Flash Mascara


A couple of weeks ago I very sadly ran out of my favourite masara by No7 (see review here). This made me incredibly sad but at the same time excited that I get to try a new product! This was part of my £20 Boots haul so I was looking for a really good bargain. I've heard Rimmel do some great mascaras so I spent some time looking at them and ended up with this one. I have to say, I haven't heard anything about it on the blogosphere and that was one of the reasons I reached for it. Plus it was waterproof and blue so I was going to love it.

So let's talk about what makes a mascara in my opinion, the brush. It's smaller than what I really like. The bristles seem to be grouped together in small bits. It's a sturdy brush that goes over the lashes very easily. To begin with I found it quite clumpy, however if you use a rocking motion when applying this reduces the clumps that form on the lashes. Personally I prefer a bigger brush with a different layout of bristles.

The formula is very wet - so it takes a little longer to dry then other mascaras that I've used and I do find that if I blink very soon after applications it does transfer onto my lower eye. I also find it lengthens the lashes very well - that's definitely a plus point. However, it doesn't do too well with curving - I'm not sure if that's because it has a smaller brush. 

Overall I will keep using this because I do like the length it lends my lashes, however I wouldn't repurchase it and I probably wouldn't recommend it to others.

What drugstore mascaras would you recommend?
