Gonna start off this post with a bit of a disclaimer about how I like my mascara. Hate, hate, hate clumpy lashes with flaky bits sticking out. It just looks so unnatural and feels uncomfortable. It has to be waterproof or reasonably resistant to water because my eyes water more than usual. And finally, it should be lightweight.
We good? Ok, so I don’t actually wear mascara on an everyday basis unless I have the extra time to get ready. I generally do when I’m going out. I’ve been using the Revlon Grow Luscious for a long time and I just wanted to change things up a bit. So I decided to go for Rimmel.
I was very intrigued with the 2-in-1 mascara and it was waterproof, so what can really go wrong?
Rimmel Glam Eyes Day 2 Night Waterproof Mascara in Black comes in two wands. One with thick bristles for volume and with thinner ones meant for length.
The formula is very light and does not clump easily. Removing excess product is a must though. I generally go in with the Volume wand first and then with the Length wand which also separates the lashes since it’s finer. It also feels very light and does not weigh down my lashes.
If I want a very natural but enhanced look, I only use the lengthening wand and it works just as well for me. More than two coats of the Volume wand can make it very clumpy though.
It’s waterproof which I’ve tested on my hand (haven’t cried yet thankfully). It takes a while to dry (5 minutes) and is resistant to water after that but it will come off if you rub a lot.
This lasts well about 5-6 hours. What I like is that when it fades, it doesn’t flake and come out in the eye area, it just sort of disappears. It can however, feel a little bit drying by the end.
This comes off easily with Bioderma but I also need a cleansing oil to remove mascara near my lash line.
The packaging looks great but the wands don’t close very tightly, it does feel a little flimsy but I’m okay with it for the price. You get 9.5g of product for Rs. 445.
I think this will be available in Parcos stores. I bought this from Slassy.com but it seems to be out of stock everywhere at the moment. I’ve still given links below though.
