Rimmel Volume Shake Mascara

I am a mascara fiend and I make no apologies for it. It is one item of makeup I never leave the house without and I feel rather off without it.  That said, when the Rimmel Volume Shake Mascara landed on my lap, I was quite intrigued by it because it is quite weighty in comparison to any other mascara I have in my stash and it makes a clunking noise as I turned it around in my hands.

The Rimmel Volume Shake Mascara is described as being a breakthrough shakeable mascara for beautiful clump free volume.  Featuring a first to the market patented shaker system that refreshes the volumising formula whenever it is needed, this is where the weight and the clunk comes from. The idea being that inside the tube the mascara goes from dry to creamy with 3-5 shakes of the tube, something you do everytime you use it.

The formula for this mascara is slightly different to other Rimmel mascaras that I have used. The volume-defining brush, which is tapered towards the end, does leave your lashes defined and separated and as I have fairly long lashes, the one thing I don't like in a mascara is an overly wet formula, so thankfully this is not what I get with this product, with a watery gel like consistency, it does manage to get a good coating without clumping, nor does it smudge, flake or run, so there is little chance of ruining your makeup. 

I do like this mascara a lot, I was unsure at first as I wasn't too keen on the weighty tube, but now I am used to it, I like how it makes my lashes look and whilst I am not in mind to keep a mascara open and in use for longer than 3 months, I do like the idea of this one not drying out in the tube so it becomes unusable, something that really annoys me and has happened on a few occasions.

This mascara differs in price depending upon where you choose to purchase it from, but it is widely available from Superdrug, Boots and more and in the region of £8.99.

  1. I've read so many reviews on this product, and the results I've seen just haven't impressed me. I do absolutely love the idea behind the product though, a mascara not drying out sounds fabulous.

  7. Great post Rachel, I like the way it separates my lashes and doesn't smudge etc but it just doesn't give me any volume at all, it is a nice mascara though and I do use it :) xxx

  8. I really liked mine but mine seems to have gotten stuck! That thing that moves, it doesn't shake literally after 2 days of buying it! So returning mine as faulty and getting a new one.

  9. I love that you'll be able to refresh the formula as I hate it when mascaras dry out so quickly. Not so keen on the bulky packaging though. Xx

  12. My eyelashes are small, so I am always looking for mascara to add volume to them.

  13. I've heard such mixed reviews on this. My lashes are literally non existent so I need something that will really add length.

  18. I love the idea of it not clumping or drying out, it's so frustrating when a mascara you've only had a few weeks has become too dry to use!

  19. Glad you like it :o) I am still on the fence about it after reading so many different reviews. I may have to give in though!xx

  20. It is a cool idea for a product but not sure I would want to keep my mascara for a long time x

  21. This sounds like such an interesting idea, the brush does look really good for volumising - and I'm like you, I hate a watery mascara so it's ideal!

  26. It sounds like a good mascara. Mascara is actually one of the only forms of make-up I use (although not a lot) so I'm always on the lookout for new ones :)
