I recently got the Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara and I have to agree with everyone out there that love this product. I am converted! It does give you fuller and curvier lashes as claimed. For me this is very important as I have poker straight eyelashes that are thin and just blah. I tend to invest quite a bit on mascaras as I love the lashes look. Currently I have in use L'oreal Voluminous, Maybelline XXL Curl Power, Bourjois Clubbing Mascara and Diorshow. I have tried many brands of mascara in hopes to find the perfect voluminous mascara that adds length, volume,curls and doesn't clump! With all that in mind I love the Rimmel Sexy Curves.
So here is my review:
The packaging: Bright metallic purple which really stands out and looks pretty.
The wand: I actually really like the curvy, plastic wand. I think it gives really good control and you can really get right into the base of the lashes to add volume
The formula: I like that it is an intense black and not too runny. It didn't clump up my lashes as well. It is also buildable. I applied 3 layers and no clumping.
The smell: No overpowering smell. Very minimal odour.
The price: drugstore prices at about £7-8 at Boots and Superdrug. Not bad!
The effect on my lashes: separated, long , voluminous lashes with a bit of curl! YaY!!
I definitely find that this mascara is better at curling my lashes than a lot of other products out there that I have tried. I prefer the wand of this than to L'oreal Volumous as I find that the wand on that tends to collect too much product and it ends up clumping my lashes (however in saying that I have found a way to avoid the clumping and ultimately I enjoy it a lot more). I prefer it to my old favourite which was Diorshow as it is a more intense black and it doesn't 'weigh' my lashes down. It is also a fraction of the price!
I am very happy so far and will definitely repurchase :)
