Supposedly, Rimmel Lash Accelerator is an ideal mascara for your bottom lashes. Well, that’s what I heard. The formula and brush would make it seem that that is true. It applies very evenly with no clumping and has a very wet formula as far as mascaras go. It also keeps lashes soft to the touch and feels nourishing (although, who knows if it really does help your lashes grow, the jury is still out on that one).
I like a much more dramatic look for my eye lashes so I layered this under a few of my other mascaras to ensure I got the thickness, length and darkness I desired. I was not expecting it to deliver the drama I wanted and it didn’t, but I was expecting it to work well for my bottom lashes.
It did apply very nicely to the bottom lashes; the brush shape was very conducive to coating all the small baby lashes. I was happy with how it looked initially, but after wearing it all day, it smudged under my eye.
Smudging under the eye is probably the most unattractive makeup malfunction that can possibly happen. In my opinion anyways. I gave it a few chances and wore it on my bottom lashes for several days, but I was not impressed at all. For almost $10, I was expecting higher quality. I think I’ll spend a few more dollars and stick to my Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara.
