Thank You Rimmel London

For Rimmel London Volume Accelerator Mascara in 003 Extreme Black*

What it is: A mascara in extreme black that volumizes and helps to grow your own lashes.

Key Ingredients: Procapil- the growth serum.

How it feels/smells/looks: The formula is very black and very wet. It is easy to get clumpy lashes and it just gets all over the eye area. The formula also takes a long time to dry, so sometimes the lashes stick together.

Why I like it: This was sent to me for free by the company, which was the only good thing I liked about the mascara. I didn’t like the wand, because it was hard to get the inner corners and it ended up a clumpy mess. This stuff takes forever to dry, then flakes like crazy. It was a pain to work with and involved  a lot of checking to make sure that my under-eye area wasn’t all black flakes. I would buy a Rimmel product again, but I think that I will pass on their mascaras. Has anyone else tried this? What were your thoughts on it?

With Love,

Selena

  1. Oh no that’s such a shame! Great review though. Love this post would be fab if you could check out my latest post too xxx

  2. I don’t think I’ve tried this one. There was one by Rimmel called Lash accelerator? I think I thought that one was OK considering its not too expensive. It did not wow me, I would not purchase it, but I think I got some good use out of it. It was in some beauty box a long, long time ago. When mascara has fallout, that is so disappointing! Or if its horribly clumpy. Those are my mascara pet peeves lol. I almost wrote here about a mascara that just gave me raccoon eyes an hour after applying it but then decided it was really so terrible that I didn’t want to think much more about it. into the trash! lol

      1. lol, now maybe I will do the post about the unfortunate mascara. it was one by Amazing Cosmetics. Its true I had it for a while so it wasn’t perfectly fresh but still. It was unopened in the package and other similar stuff has been ok when I go use it after some time has passed. Mascara is such a hit or miss thing. Even expensive ones can be awful (from samples I got). Conversely, some cheaper ones I’ve tried have been completely fine.

  3. I liked the fact that it was sent to you by the company but you reviewed it amazingly and honestly 🙂

    1. Thank you. I’m not gonna rave if it wasn’t good for me. I want to share the products that I love…and tell you the ones to avoid. Plus, I learned that it can change my eye color to brown. I’m not gonna risk that! I love my grey eyes.:)
