Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! I had to work yesterday and I’d planned to watch a film at Adryens afterwards… About 5 minutes after the film started I was sleeping like a baby. Not really the most exciting Saturday night ever, eh? :)

I did a post about my favourite mascaras recently and allthatspink1 asked about the Rimmel Sexy Curves so I figured I’d do a little review on it…

I know this is completely shallow but the packaging is the sole reason I bought this. I love the purple colour and the shape of the bottle just looks gorgeous! Thankfully it’s actually a great mascara so for once I’m glad I picked something up based solely on how it looks

The brush has rubber bristles and is quite small and thin compared with a lot of the newer “volumising” brushes that have appeared on the market recently. For some reason companies seem to think giant brushes that are so big you can barely get to the bottom of your lashes are the way to go, which is beyond me.

I like a wand that is precise enough to allow me to apply mascara right into the corner lashes and also on my bottom ones. I guess the biggest difference between this and most other mascaras is that the wand itself has “curves” which is supposed to give fuller curvier lashes
As far as I’m concerned the most important (and best) thing about this mascara is the actual formula as opposed to the brush – it’s intensely dark, not too wet, not clumpy and coats each lash easily with one smooth stroke

The curling effect is really rather good… I never bother with curlers because I’m a bit of a lazy sod but this gave them a lasting curl that actually looked really flattering and dramatic. Ever see those fluttery, girly eye lashes in the magazine ads? Well it didn’t actually look anything like that but it was still extremely pretty :)

Also, it lasted ages! By the end of the day my lashes were still extremely dark and curled, there wasn’t even any flaking and absolutely no clumping. Always a good thing in my book. So overall I would definitely recommend this, especially considering the price is so reasonable ♥

Did you know there is a waterproof one with blue bristles? I picked it up at my local Priceline, and opened it and the brush totally wowed me! Didn't buy it though, have to keep my pennies clear of cosmetics!

I use mine regularly (even tho they test on animals and such), but I do like it. I'd prefer their Magnif'eyes over this one any day tho..

Schumitza said...

oh, i'm gonna try it as soon as I finish one of my mascaras(rule)

Pretty Wonderful said...

Oooh I'm gonna give this a go! I almost baught this the other day, but picked a different mascara at the last minute, which I now don't like, I should have stuck to my first choice!

I've never tried a Rimmel mascara. I just might have to give this one a try since so many people like it!

Audrey♥ said...

I'd been thinking of buying this! and don't worry, you're not alone with the packaging thing. I buy products because of it too; things right down to hairspray bottles have to LOOK nice in my books, Idk know why!

G A B Y said...

OMG I totally hated this mascara, and the brush was awful! I gave it two tries and then gave it to my mother -_-

Bubbliecheeks said...

I brought this mascara a few months back and I have to say this is my all time favourite!! This is one that I will always buy and always keep in my makeup bag. Great review by the way :) xx

Merel said...

I'm so curious about this one! Definitely going to give it a try sometime, but for the moment I'm having a bit of a shopping-ban, recommended by my bankaccount, haha;)

Royan24 that makes me a tad nervous cos I always hope people will love what I love… Hope it’s worked as well for you as it has for me!

♥ Leah I had no idea, though that’s probably because I usually avoid waterproof mascaras as I hate how difficult they are to remove. Not a good thing if you’re as lazy as I am :)

G A B Y and Bubbliecheeks how odd that theres 2 completely different opinions right next to other?! I guess it’s true that what works well for one person might be rubbish on someone else. I always find that really interesting ♥

I really like this mascara, I have the waterproof one! The brush was a bit weird to work with at first, but I slowly got used to it! :)

Btw I've given you an award on my blog, check it out if want! ;)
