Advantages: Curls lashes nicely, great packaging and cheap!
Disadvantages: Have to apply more than your usual to get the depth you want!
My mum got me this after a trip to Boots, whenever she goes out she always brings me a little something back as she's the best!
The claim - Rimmel Volume Flash The Max Bold Curves Mascara gives you extreme volume and lift.
This costs £6.69 in Boots for a 8ml tube. I think the price is very good, seeing as most of Rimmels products are very reasonable for the quality. This is the best designed mascara I've yet to see! The colour of the tube is like a bright lime green with a shiny effect to it, with fuchsia pink bold writing. The tube is rounded with a black bottom and pointed lid, the tube is quite chunky! It looks incredible! It is only available in one colour which is black. The design on the brush itself is curved, which is what is supposed to give you the nice curled lash effect.. the brush is quite small in my opinion, which I think is very nice due to the fact you can reach all your lashes easily without worry of smudging.
My eye lashes are naturally long and quite curved, but I always want that extra curved and bold effect to my eye lashes so my eyes look really defined. I really like this mascara as it gives great separation and thickness to lashes whilst curling them at the same time. The chunkiness of the tube is very handy and feels like you have that little bit more control over the brush when handling. The brush itself is very nice and I was really surprised with how good the results were, it evenly coated my lashes, went on smoothly without any clumps and gave amazing definition and curled my lashes very well! No need for an eyelash curler, now I have one within my mascara, which in the long run saves a lot of time and effort!
Usually with some of the mascaras I have tried, the effects they give don't always last all day like you need them too, sometimes it flakes off or smudges which can be a real pain as sometimes you don't realise its on your face. With this the effects last all days without any flaking or smudging and another bonus its so easy to take off, with this mascara I believed that because you have to apply more to get the effect you want and it stays on for so long, it must be a real pain to remove. I used my simple eye make-up remover and cotton wool pads, it came off effortlessly and quickly without any hard rubbing or irritation. Now that's what I call a decent mascara!
The only downside is that the mascara looks quite wet and doesn't pick up as much out of the tube, so you do have to apply a few coats
Overall a product I will be buying again, the effects that truly last all day and so easy to use.. all for a bargain! I definitely would recommend this product, even if you have to apply a few coats, its all worth it!
Summary: Great mascara I will continue to use!
