Rimmel Extra Pop Lash Mascara is a new limited edition range of color mascaras for the Fall season. I don’t really do color lash mascaras to be honest…I just feel like a clown wearing green on my lashes or even aqua. I don’t have issues with vibrant shadows but lashes…mmm..I’m kinda on the fence with colored mascaras on a whole.
But they are on trend at the moment with many drugstore brands launching their own versions.
Rimmel Extra Pop Lash Mascara did catch my attention because along with some funky shades they also had a black version. Hey, happy girl here! I didn’t want the color but they provided me with a simple black….! Thanks Rimmel.
Did I like Extra Pop Lash Mascara?
Naaa! Unsure how the colored ones perform but the black was a sore disappointment. This comes with a standard thinner brush application without any bells or whistles. That’s fine by me as too many applicators are a tad TOO complicated or overly large lately. My issue was the formula was quite drier…thankfully this didn’t produce stiffer or crunchier lashes but I felt like I was using older mascara as I swiped it on.
My lashes are fairly long without mascara (ha I think they look in my before picture here than in my after one) so I’m looking for more dramatic length and a fuller look when using it. This didn’t really produce either. On the upside it did have a great wear and didn’t run or smear at all even swimming in it. But the actually effects it produced were snoring boring…no real length here, no volume, and it kinda made my lashes stick straight.
For a few dollars I don’t feel too bad about the purchase but if you’re heading it for a haul and don’t LOVE the idea of a colored mascara and decide, “hey at least they have black”. I’d say skip it.
Not worth the purchase.
