Rimmel mascaras such a nostalgic memory I have of their mascaras. I was about 11 and I was wondering around Clicks beauty section looking for my first ever mascara as I had just learnt that I really need a mascara for my non-existent lashes I was immediately drawn to the Rimmel glam’ eyes mascara the packaging was just so eye catching and was my fave colour pink. What was inside was just as amazing and was the only mascara that I have ever finished.
Now I typical asian lashes they are very short and lie quite flat so I have to be really fussy when it comes to the type of mascaras that will actually work on my lashes so there aren’t many mascaras that land on my beauty desk that really wow me and I’ve tossed many alike. If you were wondering for asian eyes you need a wand that is not too big, a formula which is not too wet and a lengthening mascara. Which is why this mascara is not particularly suited for my lashes specifically suited for my lashes but may be for yours.
The Rimmel 24 HR supercurler mascara basically offers is a volumising mascara with a 24 hr curling power so you can use it without an eyelash curler. This is a really great idea since eyelash curlers can be quite a torture instrument as clipping your eyelid is extremely painful but I have to curl my lashes otherwise the mascara won’t make any difference to my lashes.
Now for what I thought:
Packaging wise I always love rimmel mascaras they make the most beautiful eye catching tubes, this one is a beautiful metallic purple rocket shape, the large rocket shape makes it easy to hold and find in your makeup bag.
The brush is very large and curved to shape the contours of your eye. Personally because my lashes are short I find the smaller the brush the better it works for my lashes. The curve on the brush is the main feature for the curling effect as it actually scoops the lashes upwards.
The formula is rather dry but I prefer this over really wet formula that take longer to dry so when I blink I end of with a hot mess. The colour is a really intense black. The brush doesn’t pick up much product so you can go from natural and build it up to how dramatic you want it. It doesn’t offer much length but does wrap the lashes nicely without clumping to offer volume. For my lashes it did hold up the lashes for the whole day however it wasn’t as dramatic as if I used a lash curler since my lashes literally lie down so curling it is a real mission. There is also minimal flaking and fallout at the end of the day under the eye.
You can find this mascara at all major retailers like Clicks, Dis-Chem Pharmacies, Foschini, Edgars, The Hub, Pick n Pay and pharmacies for R119.95
