REVIEW: Rimmel London Sexy Curves Full Figure Extra Volume & Shapely Curve Mascara


We all go through phases in our lives... They could be something that you expect to something completely random... For some it could be frequent while some experience more balance... I belong to the former faction and my phases are random, inexplicably so...






Currently I am compulsively listening to Kygo, am in love with Dark Mocha Frappuccino at Starbucks to the point of delusion and am obsessively buying Mascaras... Apparently, not everyone finds Kygo music as enthralling as I do, Java Chip Frappuccino may actually be better than the Dark Mocha and well in reality my lashes have a love-hate relationship with Mascaras. No, there isn't a grey area...

But I keep buying them...
Like I said, its a phase...

The latest to be added to my mascara stash is the Rimmel London Sexy Curves Full Figure Extra Volume & Shapely Curve Mascara, quite a mouthful isn't it (pun definitely not intended!)? ;)
What attracted me to this "full-bodied" mascara after the name was the attractive metallic orange packaging... It has a subtle "come-hither" look about it and hither I definitely went...


Price of Rimmel London Sexy Curves Full Figure Extra Volume & Shapely Curve Mascara

It costs INR 520/-

The Sexy Curves mascara claims to give you voluptuous volume and shapely curves... Errrrmmmm to your lashes of course and it does deliver to a certain extent... However for me, voluptuous volume was not meant to be and I have to be happy with shapely curves only. It also makes my lashes longer...


Additionally, the mascara also separates out my lashes really well and hence acts as a great "base" for a volumising mascara. Since it separates out the lashes wonderfully, wearing multiple layers of another volumizing mascara does not end up in clumping and that is something I love about the sexy curves mascara.



My favorite Mascara Combo is the Rimmel London Sexy Curves Full Figure Extra Volume Mascara as the base and then 2 coats of the Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Volume Flash Mascara.

It comes with a very interesting applicator wand it's a little bent with multiple curves on display. You have no idea what's going through my mind while I write this sentence...
It took a little getting used to but I am now super comfortable with using it on both my upper as well as lower lashes.


The mascara on the lashes dries us pretty fast and by that I mean faster than its other Rimmel counterparts...

Overall Rating:
8/10

Recommendation:
It didn't give me volume but it definitely curls your lashes and holds the curl. It also gave me length and I like using it as a base mascara... You might as well give it a shot.

  1. The packaging the curves in the wand look nice. I am not a big mascara person but this sounds exciting.

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…
