Rimmel Volume Colourist Mascara

As someone who’s always had very fair eyelashes and eyebrows (practically blonde), I can’t leave my house without mascara. It is my number one must-have and go-to product if I am running late. It was always bizarre to me how a small product like that could make all the difference.

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been using the new Rimmel Volume Colourist Mascara that is meant to gradually tint eyelashes over time (at minimum, 2 weeks of daily use). Today I wanted to share a simple tutorial using a couple other Rimmel London products to show you how I go from a day-to-night look with mascara!

I am going to stick to 3 products for this eye look: Rimmel Volume Colorist Mascara, Coulour Precise Eyeliner, and Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Opener (all available at Target).

Step 1: Start by preparing your face. I usually use a CC cream and some powder for a matte effect. I also always make sure to define my eyebrows, they are a frame of your face!

Step 2: Apply Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer in the inner corners of your eye and along the bottom lash line if desired. Blend it out.

Step 3: Apply Colour Precise Eyeliner. I really liked this product, even though I’ve never tried or really heard of it before. It has a very fine tip, making application a lot easier. It also lasts a very long amount of time. I wore it in the pool yesterday and it never got smudged (but of course I wasn’t doing any diving, just some light swimming).

Here are some tips when it comes to eyeliner application, especially if you don’t want it to smudge or go in your crease:

  • Prep your eyelid with some eyeshadow primer
  • Brush eyeshadow or powder over it, I use powder, it makes the look more natural, yet more dramatic
  • Apply the liner by starting out in your inner corner, then outer, and meeting in the middle.
  • Try not to blink until it is dry 😉

Step 4: Time for mascara! On a day-to day basis I only apply mascara to my top lashes, but adding it to my bottom ones always makes my eyes look so dramatic!

Rimmel Volume Colorist Mascara

Like mentioned above Rimmel Volume Colorist Mascara not only tints lashes over time, but also provides instant volume.

Tips on using the mascara:

  • To see the most intense tinting effect make sure to use this product daily
  • Visible results after 2-4 weeks
  • This product contains a lasting lash-tint complex with natural colorant that gradually darkens your lash color, plus a unique combo of creamy, ultra-black lash volumizing formula.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara Review

 

IMG_4161 IMG_4191

Winter is a perfect season for beauty reviews, because I don’t have to go outside and take outfit photos. I recently received new Velvet Noir mascara by Marc Jacobs Beauty, thus the review. I feel like mascara is a product you don’t need to test out for weeks to know if you like it or not. Of course there is the aspect of what happens to the formula over time and whether it’s going to be as easy to apply as it is now, or if it’s going to thicken, but I am going to ignore this aspect altogether today.

Something interesting I learned about the Velvet Noir mascara is that it was inspired by Marc Jacobs’s first beauty memory of his mother carefully shaving fibers from a velvet ribbon to create her own couture faux lashes. 2016-01-02 14.53.47

The mascara is thick in consistency, glides on extremely well, brush is shaped unlike any other mascara I’ve used, and is overall a pleasure to apply. It is also formulated without Paragons, Sulfates and Phthalates. Yes, it is pricey $26.00 but you get a lot of product for the buck. I am still trying to get used to the product and its application. I definitely recommend it for the volume, but not so much for length. Also be careful with how much you apply, because the lashes can end up looking clumpy.

Rimmel’s Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara

2013-05-26 18.42.36 (1)

I have recently received a new product from Rimmel through my Influenster membership! And I was 100% sure I had to write a blog post about it, and then it turned out that I didn’t! But since I haven’t done a beauty post in a while, today is the day! Besides I love Rimmel mascaras and think that they are a perfect drugstore dupe for Bobbi Brown’s!

The product I got is called Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara (Grow Lash complex and fibres) in 001 black!

It has one of those plastic brushes that I like, but if I am not careful enough, I do end up scratching the skin along my lash line (am I the only one out there who does it?)

I usually apply at least 2 coats of this mascara, it builds up nicely and creates length! As far as the grow complex, let’s wait a few weeks and we’ll see! But if you want your lashes to grow, simply start taking the B-vitamins complex! That usually does the trick!

That night Sam and I also went for a walk to the Stone Arch Bridge, and decided to explore the lower trail, which in some way reminded me of Congdon Park in Duluth, where he proposed!

Clinique High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara

 

Clinique’s latest addition, the new High Impact Extreme Volume mascara. That tube is huge, but the brush is even bigger! When they first showed it to us in Strategy School I thought it was going to be like CoverGirl’s Lash Blast, WRONG! This thing is HUGE.

The brush takes some getting used to, I poked myself in the eye the first time I used it 🙂 But I was also kind of disappointed, because there is no actual extreme volume, you can probably tell by the picture. Though it does wonders for one of my coworkers.

I would definitely recommend trying it on in the store first before buying it, since it’s a $19.50 mascara after all.

Another tip – the mascara comes in Extreme Black and Black and when compared the Black looks almost Brown :/

Overall I’d give this mascara a 3 out of 5, the original High Impact is better, in my opinion.

Hope your Monday is going well!
