Rimmel Super Curler Mascara
When this mascara first came out I was super excited to try it. A mascara that claims you will not have to curl your eye lashes every morning? It sounded right up my street. I do have to curl my eye lashes each morning as they are unfortunately straight even though they are pretty long. I soon grabbed this when I was placing an order on Boots and couldn't wait to give it a go.
As I've mentioned the claim is rather huge with this mascara, yes a lot of mascaras claim to curl your eye lashes but I'm not sure if there's one, other than this one, that claims to curl your lashes as much as your eye lash curler. For me that's a big claim as I use heated eye lash curlers due to my eye lashes being so straight I find these give me the best results. The packaging is very like all other Rimmel mascaras which is pretty standard and works, there's not much more I can say about that. The mascara brush is quite large and is curved at the end. It's not a plastic brush which I like as I do find that they cling to my eye lashes better than the plastic ones.
The formula of this mascara is actually really lovely, it leaves my lashes looking really natural and fluttery. However I do not agree with the claims this mascara makes; it does not curl my lashes and I wouldn't say it adds much volume. If anything I would say this mascara lengthens my lashes slightly more than the other two claims and this one isn't even mentioned. I do have to still use my eye lash curlers before applying this mascara to achieve the look I prefer. I know everyone's eye lashes are different and yes, this mascara will definitely work for others but unfortunately it didn't work for me. That's not to say I don't like the product, I do like the formula and I think it's perfect for those no make up make up days.
Overall I wouldn't repurchase this mascara as it doesn't live up to it's claims but I am enjoying using it on those days where I cannot be bothered to go all out with my make up. I am slightly disappointed as this could have been a game changer in the mascara world but unfortunately it just doesn't work for me personally. Let me know your thoughts if you've tried this product and whether you need to curl your lashes or not!
