Rimmel Glam Eyes Lash Flirt Kohl Black Mascara Review

Rimmel Glam Eyes Lash Flirt Mascara promises to be, "Flirty seduction starts with fluttery lashes. NEW Glam’Eyes Lash Flirt Mascara creates a soft & separated, yet intensely black lash look, giving you lashes you can’t help but flaunt. 2X more intense kohl black pigments. Up to 80% longer lashes – perfectly defined, no clumps. The VolumFlex Brush grooms each and every lash to lengthen and separate lashes. Feather soft soufflĂ© formula is oxygen permeable to allow lashes to breathe. Long lasting - Smudge and flake-proof".

My findings are a whole other story.  No, I don't feel like my lashes were 80% longer or perfectly defined. Neither do I feel that they were clump free.  I tried Rimmel Glam Eyes Lash Flirt in 003 Kohl Black for 2 months before I got to write this review. 

The brush head is really similar to MAC Studio Fix Lash.  It's one of those short bristle brushes with a whole lot of bristles in a row. 

One coat of mascara does a nice natural look.  Not over the top, just my lashes but a little better.

Two coats isn't too bad, but they're starting to look a little spidery and my lashes are starting to clump together.  Not exactly what I call defined.  Yes, some volume, but not quite the look I was wanting.

Three coats made my lashes go even more clumpy and spidery looking.  Yes, some more volume, but the spideriness was not what I was looking for. 

Now, I didn't find I got any flaking or smudging. I did get some length, but clumpiness and spideriness at three coats was not what I was looking for.  I also found that it did weigh my lashes down quite a bit.  I would have to use my Sephora Heated Eyelash Curler to get some lift and curl.  I have used this mascara in a look here, here and here.

I do appreciate the color, it is quite a bit blacker than other mascara's.  I also like the length, but will have to comb out quite a bit to get out clumps.  I will be utterly thankful for my wonderful Sephora Heated Eyelash Curler for the lift that it gives my lashes to heavy mascara formula's.

I will probably opt for another mascara, I don't find that this is enough oomph for me.  I prefer something that will be me more length, volume and no spideriness.  HTH and hope you've had better luck with this mascara than me :)

  1. whoa 3 coats it makes your lashes look quite brittle. I have the original one in the pink tube, and don't like it either.

  2. Hi Justine,
    Yea, it was kinda odd that they looked so spidery and brittle. I hardly ever encounter mascara like that. The mascara was only 2 months old, so it wasn't like it had dried out quite yet.
