Thank God For Rimmel 3D Lash Mascara

Mascara Massacre

Here's a little funny thing about me, till about two years back, I did not use mascara at all. I found that it weighed my lashes down; the moment I put mascara on, I immediately wanted to take it all off. During my no-mascara years I often wondered why the whole world (beauty) kept stressing on the importance of mascara. I mean every model, celebrity or IT girl just couldn't or wouldn't leave her home without her favourite mascara. So when I started blogging about my outfits initially, I realised that I practically had no lashes, they were sort of invisible in pictures and I mean even in the closest of close up shots.

So I gave in and reluctantly started wearing mascara. I was still uncomfortable and felt the weight of the entire world upon my lashes. But I wanted my lashes to look pretty, full, long and fluttery! At the very least, I wanted them to show!

For a long time now I have been contemplating fake lashes or lash perm or extension. I can't bring myself to try fake lashes although I might try on the individual ones; they seem more up-my-street-kinda-thing anyway. I also don't want to shell out cash on a lash perm just yet.

I thought I needed volume on my lashes but in reality I was missing the deceptive lash curl and length. I have finally understood what the beauty gurus mean when they speak about volume or length.  Reluctant to splurge, I went to Boots and picked up the Rimmel 3D Lash Mascara. At £4.99, this is FAB.

I have never really been happy or obsessed with mascara until now. The packaging is sleek and compact, I am also loving the plastic wand; since it's a thin and precise applicator, it covers all the lash area wonderfully well. It's not making my lashes clumpy and thats why for the first time my lashes don't feel heavy, in fact it doesn't even feel like I am wearing anything at all (weight wise). I love it!

If you ever struggle with mascara and similar lash problems, take out some time to identify what you need, weather it is volume or length or both.

Maybe you won't relate to this post and that makes me the stupidest person ever. Either way I felt I should share it.

For the first time I can actually see my lashes and have kinda got the look I had a vision of. Its not the exact long curly lash look I lust after! But hey, thats life.  I might try Loreal or Maxfactor next.

And I need Shu uemura eyelash curler and maybe some falsies too! Who knows?! I might be the next false lash queen.

Let me know your mascara (horror) stories! xx
