I gotta confess, I really hate simple mascara brushes. I always feel like a large, bushy standard brush simply doesn’t get the job done. I’ve almost always have really crummy results with mascara that has such a brush. When the US mascara market started evolving and embracing really cool brush applicators I was all over it because for me I get the best results with all those bells and whistles rather than a standard old applicator.
I’m telling you all this because when I seen Rimmel The Max Volume Flash Mascara I was positive it would be absolute rubbish.
What is it?
Rimmel The Max Volume Flash is enriched with collagen to fatten lashes up and keratin to strengthen lashes. It promises a formula to beef lashes up to 14x.
Dude, its awesome. You needs it. It comes with a big old bushy applicator brush which I was skeptical about. Rimmel deems it their biggest brush yet but no worries its not like Covergirl’s massive club-like applicator. I’m going to go with blaming both the formula and the brush for the incredible volume and length I get from this. The brush really catches lashes and coats them fully with a rich black formula that gives lashes a fuller look. I’d say 14x is about right as it made my lashes look incredibly fat and juicy plus added a nice bit of length to ’em as well!
Not a fan of the pink and gold packaging which looks a tad cheesy to my eyes.
Who might like it?
- Anyone who wants fatter, plumper lashes!
- Anyone who desires length as well as volume!
- Chicklets who are shopping for a budget mascara (It’ll set you back $5.99 to $6.99)
Who might not like it?
- Anyone who wants a waterproof formula!
I read some kinda iffy reviews on this but I personally loved it and seen great results. For the price you can’t really lose too much by giving it a try out that much is for sure. It promises length and volume and delivered plus it wore quite long on my lashes sans smudging or flakes which is fab as it wasn’t waterproof. It washes clean away with a little cleanser so you aren’t left scrubbing at your lashes trying to remove your mascara. Not alot I didn’t like about it.
Not bad at all and worthy of a haul and a Muse Approval.
