Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara – Review

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 10 - 2009

I’ve had this unopened tube of Rimmel Sexy Curves mascara sitting in my drawer since January and I’ve been using up so many others that it’s only now that I’ve had a chance to road test it!

I particularly like the packaging of this one, everything from the sleeky purple exterior to the cute little monogrammed crown on the top.

This is my first time using a mascara wand with rubber ‘bristles’ and I really love the separation and definition that this type of wand gives.

I believe that the 3 bumps in the wand are supposed to help add a bit of curl to your lashes.  My eyelashes are naturally quite curly so I don’t bother with eyelash curlers.  I have to say that I didn’t notice any additional curl after using this mascara, but I could see that the formula feels light enough not to drag down any curls.  The formula is really nice, very black and not too thick.

You’re going to have to excuse the no make up and eyebrows – I have no idea what to do with the stupid, overly long, irritatingly wavy unruly things.

Back to the mascara, I don’t think I need to say which eye has the mascara on do I?  I see some nice length and a little volume.  I always struggle to work the mascara into the base of the outer lashes without covering my face in mascara and hoped that perhaps this wand might aid in that, it doesn’t.

I didn’t find a problem with smudging or flaking and the formula came off effortlessly with my oil cleansing rountine at the end of the day.

Rimmel Sexy Curves gets a thumbs up from me.  Nothing particularly wows me, but it’s a solid mascara which delivers lovely definition, separation, a little bit of length and a deep black colour.

    I know this is a mega- old post, but just wanted to comment anyway. I saw on the Pixiwoo channel that they loved this mascara- but I can’t help noticing how literally every single mascara those girls wear looks incredible; either there’s some special makeup artist technique I don’t know about or they’re just blessed with perfect lashes. So it’s intersting to see it on someone whose lashes are like mine. I like the seperation it gives, very clean and sharp, but I think I prefer 2000 calorie for volume. Oh and I have to say, my eyebrows are EXACTLY the same as yours- long and wavy and each one stands out! It frustrates me so much! I ended up trimming them using a lash comb to comb them upwards if that makes sense? Kinda worked, but I then resorted to plucking out all the ones beyond the arch and learning how to draw them in really well, it was the only thing that worked for me!!

    I tried this and liked the formula but found the balls odd. I got stripes of nice lashes where the balls where and it missed my other lases to I ad to move the brush funnily to coat everything. Bummer
