Review: New Rimmel Extra Wow Lash Mascara *PIC HEAVY*

Yesterday at CVS, a few good things happened to me. First off, I scanned my card thing and I got coupons for free band-aids and a free bar of chocolate! YAY! Chocolate tastes so much better when it's free. In fact, everything tastes better when it's free. I mean free stuff is the best kinda stuff. 

I also got a new Rimmel mascara: It's Extra Wow Lash mascara. Best part? It was a cheap 4.29 at CVS. It is officially cheaper than Great Lash by Maybelline. That crap is currently hovering at 6.00 at CVS. WTF. no. That's not cool at all. Anyway, here's the review. 

What Rimmel London says: Extra wow lash mascara by Rimmel London. featuring a rich pigmented formula with a soft bristle brush, the mascara builds the lashes for create a thicker, full volume finish. 


The brush with the gold handle is the L'Oreal Voluminous. Damn homie. The Rimmel brush is fatter but shorter. It's kinda annoying for my small eyes, but I digress. The packaging is standard black. I like it. It's simple. Keep it simple right?

Smell: Play-doh

Naked Lashes:
omg. It looks like I have no lashes. I PROMISE i have them. This is with one coat
Now with 2 coats

Ooo I like this mascara. I feel like I get a lot of length. Not too much volume though... However, I like this mascara. I feel like I have a wall of lashes. On the second coat, I feel like it can get a little clumpy :( I just have to pick off the clumps and we're golden. 

Price: Cheap at 4.29 at CVS or 3.99 at Walgreens. 
Wear/Tear: Good. Even though it's not waterproof, it holds up. It doesn't flake on me and once I accidentally rubbed my eye and I didn't lose eyelashes. It would be really bad if I did. It comes off really easily with makeup remover. 
Recommended: Yes. This is a good choice and should be used. Let me know what you think!

ON A SIDE NOTE. Go like my facebook! I will be having a giveaway soon but only for people who have liked my facebook.. (meaning I will be giving away a MAC item)<-- whattt? Shhh don't tell!
