naked lower lashes :( boohoo
Hey lovelies, I hope you've all had a great week?
Unfortunately,it's a bad review from me today. I purchased this Rimmel Volume Lash waterproof mascara on a whim at Gatwick airport, right before a trip to
I don't normally like waterproof mascaras’ anyway, but seeing as I was going to be in the sea, I thought it was kind of necessary.
Firstly, it's NOT waterproof in the slightest. It ended up all down my face, which as I'm sure you can imagine, was really attractive.
Secondly, and most annoyingly, this is possible the slowest drying mascara IN THE WORLD. I put it on, then as soon as I move my eye I get black all around my eye. I actually gave up trying to apply this to my lower lashes as it was just a complete nightmare.
After the mascara has dried though, it actually doesn’t look bad at all, it takes two coats to get a nice lengthened effect, although I wouldn’t say it was very volumising. The fact that it’s supposed to be waterproof and isn’t, is still pretty bad.
I've tried to push through, as I find most mascaras normally perform better after they've been open a couple of weeks, but sadly, this is still a no go for me.
It's a shame as I've read a couple of really good reviews on some other mascaras in the Rimmel collection.
But for now, I think I'll stick to my safe higher end mascaras! This review was just a word of warning for any of you thinking of trying it...
Have you ever tried this mascara? How did you find it? Can you recommend me a good high street waterproof mascara for emergencies?
