I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I celebrated my besties 30th birthday, which also happened to be her champagne birthday as well! We had a Hawaiian Luau party where we decorated, wore lei’s, and I made Pina Colada cupcakes, it was a ton of fun! The not so fun part came the next day when this Momma had a terrible hangover! Did I mentioned that I haven’t had more than a drink of two since before I was pregnant with The Twincesses? I won’t be drinking like that again for a loooong time! Hangover + twin toddlers = Lesson learned!
Anywho, I was watching TV a few weeks ago and saw a commercial for a new mascara by Rimmel, called Wonder Lash Volume Colorist Mascara. The commercial said that the mascara would tint lashes over the course of 2 weeks, I was intrigued! I like to get my lashes tinted before vacations and in the summer because I have blonde lashes and I despise water proof mascara. So, I thought why not try out this lash tinting mascara a shot!
I picked up the mascara in shade “extreme black” at Walmart for about $10 (CAD), but I know you can purchase Rimmel products at almost any grocery and drug store. The package claims that this mascara is “formulated with Lash Tint Complex” and will “darken bare lashes in 2 weeks”, so I put it to the test.
I applied this mascara to both sides of my top lashes, and also applied it to my bottom lashes every day for 14 days. I took pictures of my lashes on the first day (before I applied the mascara), after week one of daily use, and again after 2 weeks of using the mascara.
I was thoroughly disappointed. I didn’t notice any difference AT ALL in the color of my bare lashes. Do you see any difference?! Also, as a mascara I thought it was terrible. I despise the brush, I literally dreaded having to put this mascara onto my lashes because I hated the way it made them look. I have long, curly lashes and this mascara made them clump together, and made them look short and stumpy! Not a good look.
I give this mascara a 0 out of 5 stars because it didn’t tint my lashes even a little bit. So ladies, don’t waste your money. If you’re looking for a lash tint just spend the extra cash and have a professional tint them, at least they will be visibly darker, and the tint will last for a few months!
Have a great rest of your week!
