The Rimmel London Volume Flash Mousse mascara is a disappoint as an addition to a brand name suite of products I usually enjoy. I have used a variety of Rimmel mascara products, and this one does not live up to the brand. From the first time I opened the mascara it had a propencity for clumping on the brush. Because of the mousse aspect of the title, this clumping seems to be an unfortunate side-effect of the product formula instead of a fluke batch of mascara. As one might expect, the clumping lead to a very poor application from lash to lash. I have naturally long lashes. I like to use mascara that add side to side volume to even out my look, and this mascara seemed to suggest it would suit my purpose. However, the side to side volume aspect of the product lead to horrible spidering of my eyelashes and a horrible clumping of the eyelashes (to match the clumping on the mascara wand?). Since I have lighter eyelashes, I also expect dark color on my lashes. I purchased this product in a darker shade. The color did not translate well from the mascara wand to the lash either. Whether this was because of the unfortunate clumping or the poor design of the wand, I am unsure. I am sure, however, that this masara fails on three fronts: adding volume, separating lashes and adding color to lashes.
