In the past, I haven't had much luck with Rimmel mascaras, I find that they clump or flake very easily, but I was sucked in with all of the claims (and the fact it was on sale when it first came out, $10 at Priceline, wooo).
The good bits:
This mascara definitely does what it says. It has a curved brush inside to help create curl and length in the lashes, and the brush is also quite fat, which creates excellent volume (although maybe not as much volume as Maybelline Colossal, which funnily enough is also quite lengthening on my lashes). Also, I have found in the two weeks or so that I have been using this mascara, that it doesn't flake as much as other Rimmel formulations tend to. Definite plus, I tend to like my makeup to be quite long lasting.
The bad bits:
The formulation still clumps. Sigh. When you put it on you have to be very careful, as it clumps very easily. It's also very easy to comb the clumps out, but that's one extra step which is not really necessary with other mascaras.
Still, I have been wearing this mascara for two-ish weeks, and I definitely think that I will continue to use it until my two month time limit (I only keep mascara for this long to prevent bacteria build up). I am just not sure that I will repurchase. Still, that gives me the chance to try something new, right. Right.
