Rimmel Volume Flash Waterproof Mascara
Advantages: Covers well, waterproof
Disadvantages: Didnt really add volume
Mascara is something no woman or man?? can live without. Some possibly/maybe just covering all bases here ok. I needed a new mascara and wasn't looking for anything fancy, just a bog standard one that could be used anytime, while trolling Amazon I stumbled upon this beauty. I basically bought this for the price of £2 and since arrived on my door step I have been in love.
I love the striking blue tube, it is bullet shaped and the handle unscrews to reveal a wide and thick brush. The mascara isn't thick and gloopy and just because it says it adds volume; it doesn't do this by adding tons of product onto your lashes. The brush separates the lashes and each stroke covers many lashes in one go so you don't have to keep going over and over the same section trying to cover it. I only ever use black mascara and can confirm that the colour is great with this product. Waterproof wise I rate it quite highly as it doesn't come off easily, I have used this while swimming and even though I spent the whole time saying 'Has my mascara run?' to my friend, I was pleased to say it stayed put. It is easily removed with make up remover though. Volume wise hmmmm it doesn't plump them up a whole lot but some mascara will always make your lashes look thicker than having none on at all, so unsure what to put here. Overall it's a good mascara and at a good price.
Summary: Good buy
