Review: Rimmel Mascara - Idol Eyes by Kate Moss


Before I even start my review, I just wanted to express my joy for Birdman winning best picture and best director at the Academy Awards. This movie was nothing like how I imagined a superhero movie to be. If you haven't seen Birdman already, I suggest you to do so!












Rimmel rolled out the first ever mascara made by global supermodel Kate Moss. I've thoroughly enjoyed Kate Moss' previous lipstick collection so I was excited to try her mascara!

Curled Lashes

 Mascara on top lashes

10 mins later, mascara applied on bottom lashes


My Verdict
  • I quite liked the broken heart shaped brush much better than the usual gigantic brushes from drug store brands. The brush was able to reach all lashes, big and small.
  • The formula will eventually smudge if you have watery eyes, it is not waterproof. However, you can easily remove the mascara by rinsing under warm water.
  • Unfortunately, the formula is not quite designed for straight lashes, the mascara weighed my lashes down and my cur was immediately eliminated after application. Miraculously, a fraction of the curl re-appeared after 10 mins. 
  • No clumps, however I can see how this formula may clump after 2-3 months of use. At the moment, I'm able to brush out any wet clumps with no issues.
  • This mascara is quite similar when compared to Rimmel's Wonderfull Mascara. Not a bad mascara to keep in your stash for everyday use.
Which Rimmel Mascaras have you tried?

  1. Love the up close pictures! You have lovely lashes, and I like how lush the mascara makes them look. Asian lashes don't seem to hold curls very well, sadly.

  2. Hmm, I haven't tried any Rimmel mascaras but I always find mascaras a tricky thing to choose - as sometimes the formula dries up quickly (or sometimes even gets better) after a while!

  3. Great pics! The brush looks similar to the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Rockin Curves one which I use all the time, though the brush is a little too big and it really doesn't add any rockin' curves. I'm always switching my mascaras so may give this one a go in the future :)

  4. I love your before, after and 10 minute later photos. It's good to see what you mean in your written review with these photos!

  5. Liking the brush design - I'm sure it's good for reaching the inner lashes! But I wish it could have been a little smaller. For me personally, that's a bit too big for my eye!

    I used to really like Clinique's mascaras but then they discontinued a few classics and I just gave up on mascara all together!

  6. Doesn't sound too bad, but being that I have so many other mascaras, I probably won't be rushing out to buy this one any time soon! xx

  7. I need to watch Birdman! I really wanted Imitation Game to win haha. I like the close up photos, too bad it weighs down your lashes. The wand is quite interesting!

    Would love if you check out my blog! Just followed you :)
