I have a love-hate relationship with this mascara. I bought it a few months ago from Boots for £7.99. What really persuaded me to try this was the added Argan oil in the formula.
The mascara wand is the plastic kind and it has lots of spiky bristles on it. This brush allows the wand to pick up all the tiny little lashes, coat them in mascara and avoid clumps. The formula for this mascara is incredibly creamy probably because of the argan oil. It doesn’t weight down my lashes and they feel soft to the touch. It find that it dries quite quickly and the finish is a nice black colour. However I do find that if I apply a second coat I can get some flaking/ fall out.
I LOVE the results I get with this mascara. It really picks up the little lashes, separates them and gives volume at the base making it look like I’m wearing eyeliner. There is a bit of lengthening with this mascara but not a lot of volume which makes it great for everyday use.
Now onto the negatives. If you follow my blog you’ll know that I have oily lids and this mascara doesn’t hold up over a long period of time. The 12 hour picture above is after I went to the gym and you can see some smudging on the outside corner, also throughout the day the mascara kept flaking.
Removal of the product is very easy, just some hot water will take it off. It smudges so you will need to use an oil-based remover to clean the residue.
I’m coming to the end of this tube and whilst I love how it makes my lashes look I won’t be repurchasing it. If Rimmel come out with a waterproof formula I will snap it up without batting an eyelid (see what I did there haha!).
