Rimmel Extra Super Lash Waterproof Mascara Review

Description:
“The key benefits of the existing Extra Super Lash Waterproof mascara – build-as-you-want length and volume with no clumping or clogging, and up to 12-hour wear – but boasts a formulation that’s 100% waterproof! Vitamin E-enriched formula is a unique combination of lash-builders, film-formers, waxes and pigments that lengthen and separate the lashes at a stroke, then dry quickly to a smooth smudge-proof and flake-proof finish, thus creating an ideal base for the application of one or more extra coats.”

The product was provided by Yuberactive and the shade provided is black.

Here is how the wand looks like. I was a little worried when I had my first look on the wand because it seems pretty wet. If its too wet, the result probably doesn’t show as much.

Can you see the difference on my lashes? I wanted to show that this mascara could create dramatic lashes. Please be reminded, I have curled my lashes before applying mascara.

One Coat

It redefines my lashes, making it look natural and lengthy. Because of the narrow shape of the tip at the wand, it enable me to reach my fine lashes nearby my tear duct. The one coat is suitable for fine lower lashes as it darkens, making my lashes more visible. It separate lashes very well.

Double Coat

Seriously, it was never this dramatic until this review. Probably the formula has thicken up. I double up the coat by applying on the top of my lashes. Just by only one sweep of it, it gives my lashes an illusion of fatter lashes but not so much on the length. However, the bad side of the double coat is the lashes doesn’t separate and it starts to clump.

This mascara is water-proof and long-lasting without smudging. Removing this mascara gives me so much trouble. I use the Rimmel London Gentle Eye Makeup Remover and it doesn’t come off completely even after I have rubbed on my lashes for several times, probably about 30% of it removed. Something else was removed, a few of my lashes dropped every time when I try to remove it. Most of the time, I had to backup  remove it with Vaseline Petroleum Jelly.

This mascara is available in our local drugstore and selected departmental stores for MYR27.90.
