REVIEW: Rimmel London - The max volume flash mascara

I decided today to write my first mascara review.

"why?" you ask? Because I thought this was one of the
first times I've disliked a mascara.

Left side is with mascara, and right side is not.

Top eyes are an everyday boring girl makeup look,
so with that look, the mascara is a bit visible.

Lower set of eyes is an everyday look for me,
and the mascara is not really noticeable, even with 2 coats!

  • One of the reasons for buying this was the packaging,
    the pink color tube is too cute :)
  • Messy large brush, clumps easily
  • NOT WATERPROOF AT ALL! Sometimes when I yawn,
    my eyes water and this tiny bit of tearing led the
    mascara to run and smudge. It claims 'waterproof'
  • Claims to boost volume by 14X by working with a collagen
    and keratin formula. Totally did not achieve this effect at all!
  • Have to apply multiple coats to achieve any effect
  • The price is cheap compard to higher end mascaras,
    but the price is quite expensive for this lower than
    average quality product. Next, please!

So in conclusion I give this product 2 out of 5 stars
Because while I disliked it, it could work well
for a whole other group of girls with a natural style

Try Fresh's Supernova mascara (I'm pretty sure Sephora ships to Canada)
It's a bit expensive (around $24, i think) But TOTALLY WORTH IT!
Tons of length, very dark, and made with natural ingredients~

Aw man, that sucks! Thanks for the heads up~
I like Maybelline's mascaras, especially Lash Stiletto :)

Actually Rimmel is one of the cheaper brands so it's not surprising.
But I guess I'd buy it because of the package too if I hadn't read your review so thanks for letting us know! :D
But thanks to fake eyelashes i never buy expensive mascaras :p

Thanks for the review, I love mascara and I probably would have bought that just because it's pink :)
