Rimmel Volume Colourist Mascara | Review
I’m back with another mascara review, but this one is a slightly different.
Recently Rimmel London released a new mascara, the Rimmel Volume Colourist Mascara (£7.99), that actually claims to darken your natural lashes over time, due to it’s semi-permanent tinting properties, as well as adding volume. As you know, I am mascara obsessed, so I couldn’t wait to try this.
As with a lot of mascara’s it’s quite wet which can make your lashes quite clumpy, but if you use it the right way, and just apply a little amount at a time wriggling the brush, you can avoid it clumping up. The brush didn’t amaze me, but I wasn’t disappointed, to me it’s just a simple normal wand, nothing to shout about, but I like it.
I’v been using the mascara for around 2 weeks now. It definitely adds length and volume & there hasn’t been any flaking, but there has been a tiny little bit of smudging, but not enough to put me off. There is a downside to this mascara for me though. My eyes are very sensitive and water a lot. The tiniest bit of wind can set them off, and if this happens when I’m wearing this mascara (unlike quite a few other non-waterproof mascaras) it’s a nightmare.. But it doesn’t state that it is waterproof at all, so I can’t expect it to be.
So down to what we all want to know, does it tint your lashes? 100%! I’m naturally blonde so I have quite light lashes, I noticed instantly that it worked, after using it for just a few days my lashes were clearly darker! Obviously this isn’t permanent, so keeping up with using this mascara will keep your lashes tinted. I absolutely love that this mascara tints your lashes & I definitely will continue to use this along with my other mascaras.. & I will be repurchasing this again.
