Rimmel London Glam’Eyes Mascara Review

July 23, 2008

My latest drugstore find is Rimmel London Glam’Eyes Mascara.

Rimmel London Glam'Eyes Mascara

Rimmel London Glam'Eyes Mascara

Packaged in an uber sexy black and pale pink tube with a fishnet stocking-looking cap, the Rimmel London Glam’Eyes Mascara came with a thin, comb-like VolumFlex brush with “extra supple, ultra-fine elasto-bristles with 2 short sides for lash building and 2 longer sides for flawless separation” for up to 10 times lash intensity.

Compared to other mascaras, the brush felt much softer and bendier (it literally felt like I would break it!) but it worked really well in getting to the root of your lashes. It also helped add length and volume without clumping.

The formula itself was very smooth and slightly runny. It darkened and intensified my lashes with just a few coats and I love how it dried fairly quickly and you could keep applying to build up the intensity. Plus even though it washed off really easily with warm water, it barely flaked and stayed on all day.

Overall, I like this mascara a LOT and will definitely repurchase.

Rimmel London Glam’Eyes Mascara is available in 2 shades (Black and Extreme Black) at drugstores nationwide for $5.99.

    I’ll have to give this one a try. Has anyone ever tried Mabelline’s Define-a-Lash mascara?? I heard that works really well too, but haven’t tried it yet.

    Do you need to use a lash comb with this mascara?

    • Reply Phyllis July 26, 2008 at 10:19 pm

      I did not need to use a lash comb with this – this baby barely clumps.

    glam’eyes mascara is also available in brown black- the colour i have.

    this mascara didn’t really do much for me, it separated my lashes, but did not really lengthen or volumnize it. perhaps it’s my thin eyelashes. pretty packaging though.

    After reading your review, I went out and got some. I love it! I usually use estee lauder projectionist mascara, but I definitely choose Glam eyes over it.

    Cyrell: I’ve tried the Mabelline’s Define-a-Lash mascara, I think itès alright especially for the price. The small bristles really get into the small lashes. It didn’t clump, the color intensify with each coat. It dries pretty fast as well. But you need to curl your lashes 1st if you want a bit of volum; it lengthen my short lashes though. There’s a little smell, but if you can bear it, then the mascara is pretty good.

    My problem with mascaras is that they always look so dry on me, I want the wet and fresh look! I’ll try this one.

    I love this mascara, but can not find it anymore. Is it discontinued? Have tried other ones in this brand,but have not like them. Where can I find this one?

    • Reply Phyllis May 4, 2016 at 12:03 pm

      Hi Ann, I did a little research and it does look like the mascara has been discontinued – sorry!

  • Reply Kimery June 23, 2016 at 12:35 pm

    Is there anything like it? I love the wand and I just can’t find another one I like as well. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product and I’m so sad it’s no longer available!
