Review: Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara Doesnt Smear Flake Or Smudge

Published 14:29 pm

I struggled with mascara flaking, running and smearing.

It was especially bad since I suffer from allergies and have a bad habit of rubbing my itchy, watery eyes. This of course made matters worse and sometimes smeared my mascara all over my face.

Wearing mascara on my eye lashes became more trouble than it was worth. I looked good in mascara. When I didn't wear it, my eye lashes were barely noticeable. I finally tired of worrying if my face was spattered with mascara. Eventually, I stopped wearing mascara all together.

When I found clear mascara that is also used as eyebrow gel, I found something that I could wear without making a mess of my face. But clear mascara just didn't make my eye lashes stand out, but it was better than nothing.

A few years ago at the library, I found a book that changed my life, Paula Begoun's, "Don't go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me, 5th Edition." It was so good I immediately bought a copy of all three of Ms. Begoun's books. These books have saved me a lot of money on beauty, skin care and hair products. I give these books as gifts, I think so highly of them.

Paula Begoun has many years of experience in cosmetics. She debunks many makeup and skin care myths perpetrated by the beauty industry. One of the biggest myths is that more expensive products are better than cheaper ones. In the book, Ms. Begoun recommends makeup and skincare products in all price ranges and brands. She focuses on the product's composition and performance rather than the brand or price.

After trying many drugstore brand products that she recommended and having great success, I decided to try one of the inexpensive mascaras she recommended. Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara, recommended by Paula Begoun, is now my holy grail mascara. I have finally found the perfect mascara. It doesn't smear or flake and is waterproof. All of my habitual eye rubbing doesn't even seem to affect the mascara at all and I no longer have mascara all over my face.

Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara is an affordable mascara that really delivers what it promises. It should be noted that all of the different Rimmel mascara formulations differ, so if you buy a Rimmel mascara that doesn't say, "Extra Super Lash," you probably won't get the same good results.

Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara comes in several, natural colors.

You might be interested to read about:

I personally like the brown black shade. It's not bright brown like many brown mascaras, but a natural dark brown that is almost black, but is softer than black. After trying this and black mascara side by side, this is much softer on those who do not have black hair and eye lashes.

I still have to use an eye lash curler before applying Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara. (Note, you should never curl your eye lashes after applying mascara, because this can damage your eye lashes.) The mascara does not curl your lashes for you. Before applying the mascara, I don't use any sort of base on my eye lashes.

After removing the mascara application wand from the tube, I do like to blot it with a tissue to make sure I don't over apply or get any clumps. If you do this, and apply lightly to moderately, you should be able to avoid clumpy, "Tammy Faye Baker" eyes.

Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara only requires one coat. One could use more than one coat, but personally I don't think that looks attractive or natural on any woman. The mascara will smudge if smudged within the first few minutes, say three to five minutes, until it is dry. I can't imagine any mascara not smudging while it's still wet. It's unreasonable to expect this. But once Rimmel Extra Super Lash has dried, it's set and stays put. It withstands eye rubbing, watery eyes, mild crying, humidity and light rain. I have never tried it swimming or underwater, so I can't tell you how it performs in that area.

My eyelashes are naturally a bit on the long side, and Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara does lengthen them somewhat. I would say that it does thicken somewhat and define the eye lashes. But it does not cause the eye lashes to appear unnatural or clumpy unless you over apply it.

For such a waterproof mascara, Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara removes very easily. But it only removes when you want it too, not accidentally. I don't use any special type of eye makeup remover or cold cream. I simply use a gentle water soluble facial cleanser (also recommended by Paula Begoun) Olay Foaming Face Wash for Sensitive Skin.

I don't even use a washcloth or cotton pads, I simply make a lather with my hands and use them to clean my face, including my eye lashes. I then use my hands to splash my face repeatedly to rinse it and then pat dry gently with a soft towel. I never have to rub my eyes or scrub my eye lashes. This simple routine sufficiently removes the mascara without irritating my eyes nor drying them out.

The mascara package should always be tightly closed after using the mascara. You should never share mascara with a friend or family member, since you can share germs accidentally. Mascara should be replaced every 3-4 months (but many times I go 6 months without any problems) for hygiene reasons. Never try to thin the mascara with water or saliva as this could cause an eye infection. (Rimmel Extra Super Lash does not need thinning, by the way.)

I've recommended Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara to friends and family members who have all loved it. I have even given it as a gift. It does not irritate the eyes nor does it dry out the lashes. It is truly one mascara that actually stays on your lashes. I'll buy this as long as they make it. As far as I'm concerned, mascara doesn't get better than this. And yes, I've tried many different mascaras over the years in many different price ranges.

No other mascara I have tried has ever performed as well as Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara. And at such an affordable price, it's a bargain in all aspects.
