Rimmel Lycra Lash Extender Mascara Expert Review ...

By Lesley

This mascara from Rimmel claims it can stretch lashes to limbo lengths! Can you believe all the hype? We couldn’t wait to find out the long and short of it!
Type of Mascara: Lengthening
Colours Available: Black & Brown
Price Range: Cheap
Product Claims:
One coat of LYCRA® Lash Extender Mascara stretches and extends even difficult lashes for an impresive high performance result with 14 hour curl hold. A New high-adhesion, quick dry LYCRA® formula delivers smudge-proof, smear-proof and flake-proof wear for girls on the go.
My Experience:
Using lycra in mascara seems like a logical concept but I can’t get the image of cycling shorts and exercise out of head! I was ready stretch those lashes! Unfortunately it seems the concept is better than the reality. This mascara didn’t deliver. After the first coat, there was little in the line of lengthening, volume or separation. A second coat created some elongation and lift but nothing in the realm of Rimmels claims. There wasn’t much clumping, however it did smudge a bit and took a long time to dry. I was extremely disappointed in this Extender mascara, it seemed like a clever concept but the results proved different.
Overall Rating: Bad
Price: $7.49 at
