I am in a mascara rut.
You heard me, I know it seems impossible for a beauty blogger, but I am.
Will Rimmel’s ‘Extra WOW Lash Mascara’ help me out? Let’s see…
Okay, so I have a confession to make. I bought this for the packaging. Silly me. For $6 I couldn’t resist.
This claims to increase volume up to 12 times, which when you think about it…is kinda a ridiculous claim by itself.
Say my lashes are normally like this: //
12 times that would be: / /
Gross right? That’s an exaggeration but still. And needless to say, Rimmel didn’t fulfill it.
The color is nicely pigmented. This shade is ‘003 Extreme Black’. I love black black mascaras.
It did make my lashes longer and more volumized. I loved how it didn’t flake or smudge either.
It isn’t a miracle worker by all means…mostly because it seems to just disappear on my lashes. No clumping/flaking and falling off. It just sucks into my lashes and is gone. SO WEIRD.
I have never has a mascara just fade like a lipstick or something. Bizarre.
Final Thoughts: I had high hopes for you Rimmel, but you just left me in the cold.
