Rimmels Worst Mascara So Far

Where to start..

The packaging is hideous, it's a really cheap plastic shiny tube - hideous neon green with pink writing. The twist off lid feels really flimsy and the wand is horrible. The shape doesn't look too bad at first I've used curved brushes in the past and usually they make life easier, this however definately doesn't. It's hard to get into the corner and outer lashes without catching all the rest at the same time! Then we have the smell, it's disgusting it just stinks of dirt.

The worst part however is the formula which is incredibly wet and thick, it literally sticks to the wand leaving far too much on the brush. I've tried dabbing some off onto a tissue, applying it incredibly slowly and soft, wiggling through the lashes - nothing works. You will just end up with a handful of thick, gloopy, clumped lashes.

For once I really do have nothing positive to say I would happily bin this if it wasn't a present, it will stay in my make up draw for a long long time until I rediscover it in a few years and whack in the rubbish bin.

  9. When I buy a mascara that turns out to be too wet and thick, I use it just to define the ends of lashes after applying a decent mascara.
    It works best on a dry base, so it's ideal for taking you from daytime to night when you're in a rush :) xx
