It's no secret that I'm abit of a mascara addict, I just love them! So when I saw Rimmel's Rockin' Curves Mascara in Wilkinson's a while back for the bargain price of £3.98 I just had to pick it up and try it for myself.
Firstly I think it's fair to say the Rockin' Curves packaging is pretty impressive and it definitely stands out from the crowd. It has the same large tube that almost all of the Rimmel Scandaleyes mascaras come in, but the barrel is textured to mimic a snake print effect and has an eye catching red and black design which I love.
The main defining factor of this mascara is the wand! The broken heart-shaped bristle brush is rather daunting when you first take it out of the tube, not only for it's unique shape but it's on the rather large side too, so any girlie's out there with smaller eyes like myself, might struggle to get to grips with the mascara application process at first as I know I did, but once your get to grips with how the brush works for your lashes it's absolutely fine. I tend to use the wand the way it's pictured below, I find using it that way on both eyes ensures I can reach every lash because the thin tip works it's magic by grabbing those hard-to-reach inner lashes, while the amplified base pulses my lashes with incredible volume and curve, just what I love and want from a mascara, it also saves on using 'scary' eyelash curlers too! I never really found the mascara clumpy during application, however whilst learning how the wand worked for me I did end up with the occasional splodge of mascara on my eyelid here and there but nothing major. Like I said before the brush is of the bristle variety, not plastic, which makes wriggling the wand at the root of my lashes easy and not painful at all, woohoo!
As for the Rockin' Curves staying power... I was really impressed, there was no smudging, running or flaking throughout the day with the two coats that I applied so no grumbles there. I didn't really feel that the volume and curve on my lashes dropped throughout the day either which is a bonus and something I always look for in a mascara due to my eyes being quite small, I like the extra volume to open up my eyes abit more.
Overall I am super impressed by Rimmel's Rockin' Curves Mascara, my lashes appeared longer, fuller and definitely have some gorgeous curves going on ha ha. I love the fact it doesn't flake throughout the day or transfer onto my brow bone and I think the special offer price (£3.98) I paid is such a bargain and I would of even paid full price for this because I think £6.99 is really reasonable for such a fantastic high street mascara.
Have you tried Rimmel's Rockin' Curves Mascara yet? What did you think?? I'd love to know your thoughts beaut's!
