A few weeks ago I was kindly sent this Rimmel mascara to review*. When it comes to mascara's I am fussy as I have really sensitive eyes. That's why I like to use a mascara for a while before I review it on my blog. Mascara's can also change within a few weeks of use ( you shouldn't keep your mascara longer than 3 months)
The mascara is unique and first to market patented shaker system. What this means is when the mascara starts getting older and drying out more, you simply shake to refresh. You can do this as many times as you want. As the mascara does come with a shaker system it means it is heavier (compared to a regular mascara).
The packaging is a dark grey with gold writing on. I personally like this as the gold makes it look a lot more expensive. The weight of this mascara doesn't bother me and I doubt it will bother many other people.
The wand is a medium sized wand, I personally don't mind these type of mascara wands. The wand creates a volumised natural lash look. Which is ideal for during the day or if you don't want your lashes to look dramatic. The wand also separates your lashes without making them clumpy. As you can see from the image above near the end of the mascara wand there is slight clumping, but that is easily wiped away.
How it looks on
The formula of this mascara is quite wet so you will need to allow a few seconds for your mascara to dry. Otherwise you can end up ruining the rest of your eye makeup.
In the picture above I have applied one coat of this mascara. I don't have the best lashes, but you can see my lashes are a lot more volumised and separated.
My Overall Opinion
I have been using this mascara for a while now and it doesn't irritate my eyes. My eyes are sensitive so if I was going to react to a mascara I would have done so by now. This mascara is a nice everyday mascara. It defines, adds slight volume to your lashes and separates them. The mascara retails for £8.99.
Have you tried this mascara before?
