I tried this because a friend bought it, and I fell in love with it.  It has a neat applicator brush.  I have tiny eyelashes, but  Rimmel London Lash Maxxx Mascara made my eyelash large and bold.  The effect was so dramatic that everybody noticed!

 For mascara, I think everyone has different preferences.  Mine do not mesh with what I found Rimmel's London Lash Maxxx Mascara to provide.  I found this Mascara to be great in depth of color and thickness.  Some products, if not thick enough do not give enough 'ummmph' to my lashes.  I find there to be a delicate balance between thickness and clumpiness.  If a product is thick enough to poof up the lashes but thin enough to avoid clumpage, it is a winner.  Rimmel did not provide this with the Lash Maxxx.  There was not enough Maxxxxxxx, I think. :)  I found that several swipes did not give me the thickness required to make my lashes visible.  Several applications still left me wanting in that arena.

The mascara did provide a wonderful depth of color.  I found my lashes maintained curl after usage as well, which is a plus. 

Removal was a bit of a pain though.  We all use different products to this end, but when the first didn't work as well as I like (and I lost a few lashes in the process), I decided it wasn't worth it.

For looks, it was great.  For ease of use and practicality, not so much.  For me the latter takes precedent. 

Guess it's back to the drawing board!

Can't go wrong with Rimmel!

Comments about Rimmel London Lash Maxxx Mascara:

I usually never buy drugstore mascara unless they are on sale but Rimmel honestly never seems to to go wrong! They have great products! The wand is not too big but no to small. Flares out your eyelashes without making them too clumpy. I'd recommend using a thinner, finer mascara beforehand to flare out and elongate your eyelashes with no clumps and then applying this mascara for extreme volume and dark lush eyelashes!

A great little go-to when the budget is tight.

By 

from Kilmarnock, VA

Comments about Rimmel London Lash Maxxx Mascara:

You can spend more on mascara and get longer-lasting results, but let's face it. Sometimes there's a budgetary crunch and you're out of mascara. Rimmel London Maxx Macara gets the job done so you can face the world in the morning.

I usually buy it in black, but if I can find it in navy blue, that's my all-time favorite.  It's a great color that accentuates my bright blue eyes.

Rimmel mascaras all tend to rub off easily, sending flakes drifting into the corner of my eye. Ouch! I also get raccoon eyes over time because it tends to smudge and wear off over the course of a long day.

However, on those occasions when I get a surprise invitation to go out to dinner, this is the mascara I use for those long, long lashes that a woman has to have when she's dining by candlelight.

I like to keep a tube of Rimmel London Lash Maxx in my travel makeup. It's great for quick touch-ups and the tube itself is nice and durable. The brush isn't the greatest, but for the price, I can't complain.

Wasn't what I expected it to be..

By 

from North Las Vegas, NV

Comments about Rimmel London Lash Maxxx Mascara:

I bought Rimmel London Lash Maxxx Mascara because I was intrigued of the wand. Instead of having a brush, this one is a comb. I thought it would actually work because it would function both as a comb and an applicator. But I was very disappointed because the comb was so soft it was hard to apply mascara on my lashes and the handle very flexible I was actually making a mess,I had to do several tries to finally get it right. I was expecting a lot more from Rimmel mascara because it's a little on the expensive side but cheaper mascaras actually works better than this. Didn't make my lash more lush contrary to what they're advertised for. I think I'm gonna stick with my ever reliable mascara brand.

Lash comb and mascara in one

By 

from Strasburg, PA

Comments about Rimmel London Lash Maxxx Mascara:

This mascara is such a good idea. A mascara that is applied with a comb basically. The comb applies the mascara well and evenly for most of the product life. After a while the comb does get caked with mascara just as a lash comb does when it is time to clean the bristles. I liked the coverage and the black color was dark enough, but I always had to use another mascara to get my desired results. I layer alot of my mascaras. I like certain ones for certain reasons and this is one that I cannot use alone. It defines well, which is expected due to the comb applicator, but I was not able to acheive the volume and bulking up that I like. The wand is easy to use and I found that I had less clean up by using this than with using a regular mascara with a brush wand. I do think it gets clumpy though and I did experience some flaking. It makes your lashed really stiff too. I am nit a fan of the stiff lash because it makes the lashes more prone to breakage then, especially if you do not fully remove all of the mascara when you go to bed at night.

Average Results. Okay Product.

By 

from New York, NY

Comments about Rimmel London Lash Maxxx Mascara:

I have been using Rimmel London Lash Maxxx Mascara for about a month. Compared to other mascaras it yields an average result. I wear this mascara in extreme black and it does a good job of darkening my lashes. My lashes do appear longer but not much fuller. I have used other products that have better results such as Great Last Mascara and Full and Soft Mascara. I like to make my eyes stand out and this product doesn't really do that for me. The advertising promised amazing results, but this product is just average. I'm going to use it until it runs out though. I don't like to waste money. I don't think I will be buying this mascara again.

Great Deal

By 

from Lucedale, MS

Comments about Rimmel London Lash Maxxx Mascara:

I wear make up every day and have for years so I have tried very many brands of mascara.  Recently I found a coupon for Rimmel London Lash Maxxx and put it in my purse.  I was on my way to work on day and realized my mascara had fallen out of my purse.  I stopped at a discount store to run in and grab something.  I was looking around the saw the Rimmel sign and never noticed it before,  I looked in my purse and found the coupon.  I couldn't believe how inexpensive it was.  I grabbed it and was a little skeptical about it but thought I would give it a try.  I love it.  It has lasted such a long time. I am still using it.  It doesn't clump or make my lashes stick together like some other brands.  At night when removing my make up it come off easily with not alot of rubbing but I don't have to worry about it during the day it doesn't "sweat off" like others so and run under my eyes. I would definitely recommend Rimmel London Lash Maxx to everyong.

Rimmel London Lash Maxxx Mascara is great!

By 

from Apollo Beach, FL

Comments about Rimmel London Lash Maxxx Mascara:

Rimmel London Lash Maxxx Mascara is great!  I wasn't disappointed at all. I was intrigued by the application with a comb.  The comb design worked so well with my short, thin lashes! It actually coated all of them, and separated well. It seems to be a much more precise application for mascara than any brush, allowing easier access from root to tip.  The wand is a comb type wand with a double row of teeth, which makes it  excellent for fine lashes. It does not clump. One or two coats will get you nice, very natural looking and defined lashes.  One or two more coats can give a more dramatic look.  I like this mascara. It does not clump and it separates the lashes during the application.  It is also a very buildable mascara because you can put several coats of mascara without any clumping or flaking.The formula is smooth and goes on well, and easily removed with warm water and my facial cleanser, so it is good for everyday wear.

I love the Length it gives.

By 

from Irving, TX

Comments about Rimmel London Lash Maxxx Mascara:

I love the length it gives. the comb literally combs your lashes outward and extends them. i love how it doesnt clump for me and i love how easy it is to get the lower lashes and extend them as well. with this product i have no reason to wear fake eyelashes because this mascara achieves that look with your own natural eye lashes. this is 1 of the mascaras that i keep on hand religiously for that REAL "come hither" look. For added "uph" i will use a volumizing mascara AFTER this mascara for even thicker eyelashes. If you cant imagine what im talking about, picture celebrities. You see how their fake eyelashes just steal the spotlight?? This combo will make your lashes the same way but yours will be better than the celebrities...why?? Because yours are real and dont have to deal with the uncomfortable-ness of fake lashes and worry about if the are coming off. You will literally be the envy of women everywhere who dont know about this mascara, or who dont try it. Cause rimmel london does what it says!!

RIMMEL'S LASH MAXXX was ok, but disappointed me.

By 

from Layton, UT

Comments about Rimmel London Lash Maxxx Mascara:

I was very disappointed with Rimmel's Lash Maxxx.  It states "3x Lash Multiplying Effect Mascara" and comes with a comb-like applicator which I thought would be good, but the wand is too flexible, and the bristles in the comb too weak.  The actual mascara itself is nothing special.  I really expected something special here, and special it was not.  I feel like I might as well have gotten a super cheap mascara, and heck, I might have been better off getting a super cheap mascara.  I used this once, maybe twice I think.  Now I have this brand-new nice-looking mascara sitting around my house that isn't actually nice.  I feel tricked.  It's definitely below-average. In my eyes, this mascara was a dud. Once more, nothing special.  It didn't flake horribly or give my eyes a horrible oozing infection, so of course things can always be worse but for the money I spent and the advertising I saw I did expect more from this product.
