Earlier in the year Rimmel launched the Retro Glam mascara and I bought it because I’m addicted to buying mascara. I used about twice and then I lost it so I never got write a full review or even take a picture. I contemplated replacing it but I have so many mascaras that I really could not justify buying another. However, a few weeks a Retro Glam Extreme was launched so it was the perfect opportunity to buy another.
Firstly, I have to say the wand and the effect is the exact same as the original Retro Glam, my lashes were volumised but it wasn’t the best for holding a curl but my lashes are super straight so maybe it’s just me. In terms of the extreme black, it is really black but in my opinion the original was really black.
I can’t see a huge difference between the Extreme and the Original, both are good mascaras, volumised lashes, I would give this a try but I do think there are better mascaras available.
