Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara

Rimmel's new Lash Accelerator is not only  a lengthening mascara but also one that strengthens and is said to help them grow longer.

Rimmel's formula for it is called GROW-LASH complex . Some of the ingredients in the complex are  Biotin, Keratin, Arganine, Vitaman H and Bamboo extract.

In their study with 41 women, Rimmel says lashes grew up to 117% longer in one month of use. After one week they saw stronger lashes .

Now I have just begun using  Lash Accelerator, so I can't say that it's grown my lashes . However, it does  nice job of lengthening. There are some I've used that lengthen more, but many that don't. This falls in the middle. It  feels very soft on , is never hard and it doesn't smudge. If it gets wet, yes it will run ( it's not waterproof)  but in the course of the day I had no smudges and I've mentioned  my major smudge issues many times. 

There are 2 shades - Extreme Black and Black. I have the Extreme  but I don't find it that deep. Not as much as some, which is fine by me. To me it's simply true black.

The wand is long and the brush is  a nice size. No huge brush to deal with, it gets all the lashes pretty easily.

Rimmel Lash Accelerator will be available in October and retail is $ 9.99 ( In the UK this has already been released. )

Have you tried Lash Blast before? That's what I use, and I'm wondering which you prefer (if you have tried LB). I'm thinking of switching to a new mascara, but I still am deciding on which. Let me know what you think. Thanks!

Hi Sophia,
I have to say I do like Lash Blast better. I think it thickens lashes more but it's still not my overall fav. Lash Blast Length is my favorite of the Blasts and one of my main fav mascaras. Hope that helps :)
If you're interested my thoughts on LB Length are here :
