Review on Rimmel’s Volume accelerator

I bought Rimmel’s Volume accelerator back towards the end of August, and have been wearing it everyday with the exception when I switched it out a few random days for waterproof mascara. I’ve actually used it for over 30 days. I kept track. I just can’t find the photo of the picture I took for before reference of my lashes. I couldn’t really find anywhere online what this mascara promises to do in making your lashes grow.

Rimmel promises: 


First mascara formulated with an Advanced Volume Boosting Complex.Instantly lashes appear up to 10x fuller

I liked the brush on the wand for this mascara. It’s thinner at the top and spirals thicker as it gets to it’s base. The brush holds a good amount of mascara on it. It only clumps on the brush at it’s base. I like that it’s thin at the tip so you can easily reach the inner and outer corners, while it’s thicker towards it’s base so you can easily coat the middle section of your lashes.

It goes on smoothly. It doesn’t clump much, but at the same time it doesn’t always separates all my lashes. I do notice that my eyelashes do look thicker and longer with this mascara on. 

With it off I only really notice there’s a little more length then before.  I didn’t notice my lashes looking thicker without mascara.  

The formula is super wet. It also takes about a minute or two to fully dry. I find that it wears away during the day. I usually apply around 8am and by 8pm, there’s nothing there. 

Now while it fades away theres NO smearing, or flaking. I just notice my lashes feel like theres no mascara on, and you don’t notice them anymore. 

As you can tell from my shiny nose this is what they look like at the end of the day. 

Verdtic: Now while I do love how my lashes look for the first couple hours of my day, there’s no mascara left on my eyes by night. Now while I love that it doesn’t flake or smear, it is a super wet formula. I also didn’t notice a big change in my lashes. So I will have to say I would skip buying this if 

your on a budget. I won’t be re-buying this product. 

The reason why this product was in Septembers favorites is because it was the mascara I used the most. Not that it’s seriously my favorite.

    Great Review! Brutally honest – love it. I think these 'accelerator' mascaras are only pretending to benefit your natural lashes, as they really aren't making any great straightforward claims. I like the shape of this wand, but if it's not the best at seperating lashes, it's not for me. 🙂
