Rimmel The Max Bold Curves
Advantages: One coat is ideal for anatural look.
Disadvantages: Two coats or more leaves my lashes clumpy.
I have been told that my eye's are my best feature, I honestly can't agree with that but I do agree that I am lucky that I have been blessed with fantastically thick and long eye lashes, that only need a quick slick of mascara to make them really "pop" when I am made up.
This being the case I tend to go for darker mascara's, but have never really bothered with all the promises of "lengthened this" and "more volume that", though I can hardly walk past a bargain, so when I saw this on offer for no less than half it's usually RRP, it would have been daft not to!
This particular brand is not new to me, and I have had varying degree's of success with there many different products available, but thankfully very few problems with mascara's, they either work or they don't!
This product not only boasts extreme volume, but also there biggest curve ever, so in reality this means that after a couple of coats of this stuff I should resemble some sort of drag queen....I decided slow was the way to go with application!
The tube itself is a vibrant green colour, with a picture of the curved brush on it, and low and behold, when I removed the bush from the tube (and wiped away the incredibly excessive amount of mascara of the brush before use), it was curved!
The brush is actually not only curved but also a little thicker in width than some of the mascara wands I have previously used, this did make the application a bit quicker, but also meant that you seemed to have more product on the wand than usual, and for the first couple of days I found that I was forever having to wipe droplets of black from my skin (am I am a messy applicator!).
After one application I found my lashes looked very natural looking, though no thicker or curvier than before application, I tend to use the one stroke method for my work make up.
Any subsequent applications I found that it did go a bit clumpy, so I started to go with the one brush and go with this mascara, and had to get another one for heavier application.
This is a nice enough mascara, that has never irritated my eye's, and is easy enough to take off, but for it's claims of extreme volume and curves I found it didn't live up to it's claims one bit.
Price wise I purchased this for £3.00, but believe it will be available now for around the £5.00 - £6.00 mark.
Thanks for reading x
Summary: An ok mascara.
