Rimmel Glam Eyes Lash Flirt Mascara, A Haiku Review

Published in: Drugstore Beauty Finds, Product Reviews

Oh, Glam Eyes Lash Flirt
(A mascara by Rimmel)
Cheap … but not sleazy.


Just seven dollars!
In two shades: Black and Kohl Black
On sale at drugstores.

Lashes like magic
Sprinkled in Miracle Grow

For mad length and lift
Rimmel Glam Eyes Mascara
Lasts from dusk till dawn

Nekkid lashes

What’s Rimmel’s secret?
The air-whipped formula and
Carbon black pigment.

Is it perfect? No.
The brush is hard to use and
It can make a mess.

One layer

Each time I use it
Product ends up on my lids
It’s so annoying!

There’s also some flakes
And a bit of smudging too
Not a huge deal though…

Two layers

I still think it’s great
Especially for the price
It’s a drugstore gem.

To lengthen lashes
Give Rimmel Glam Eyes a try.
MBB Rating…

Three layers



Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. We made it through Monday in one piece, babes, and I feel like celebrating! I think candy’s in order. Maybe a Blow-Pop or two. They have wacky flavors now like Blue Razzberry and Extreme Lemonade. Really, how extreme can lemonade be?? It’s lemonade!

P.P.S. Before you jet, beauty lover, check out the home page for more makeup reviews. 🙂

    LOL. I am really loving these haikus, Karen!!

    This mascara looks really lovely actually. I’m impressed! The volume’s really not bad either, imo.

    And omg I miss blow pops so much!!! I also have a ridiculous donut craving right now. Do you ever get those?

    hey karen,
    ur lashes look really good with that mascara, i dont think ive seen all ur mascara reviews since im only new 2 ur blog, but out of the ones i have seen i think this might me the best making them thicker and def longer 🙂 even with just one coat!

    im a big fan of clinique high impact mascara 🙂 but i might give this one a go, thanks 4 the tip!

  4. amy says:

    I picked this mascara months ago but haven’t used it yet. Maybe I will crack it open soon. I have always liked the original glam eyes mascara, the one with the black and pink packaging. I find the wand quite easy to use because it is skinny. It makes my lashes long!

    Dannnggggggg your lashes are long! I love the Tabs pics that usually occur at the end of every post. It’s like a hidden cat treasure.

    I am actually a big time fan of Rimmel Glam Eyes (the regular one) – I initially bought it because the packaging was cute (pink with a crown? yes, please!)…Rimmel actually has some great products for their price point. Kudos for showcasing this one! 🙂 Must try it now!

    Extreme Lemonade FTW!!!! Im glad we all made it thru Monday!

    I had such a horrendous drive home – the freeway I take to get to our home was like a parking lot. I was disgraught when I got home – so distraught that I needed three pieces of those Easter Nerds that I got from Church. I felt better after that.

    Im still in search for a mascara – maybe ill give Rimmel a shot – its on sale somewhere for 40% off …. 🙂

  8. noemii says:

    whooaa i totally bought that mascara yesterday at walgreens for three something dollars ! 50% off yo ! at walgreens .
    cool beans .
    i’m quite partial to the packaging ..

    mm .
    blowpops .
    i wish they had never made them with icky chocolate .
    bubble gum is the way to go !

    • Karen says:

      Not bad, Noemii! Gotta love a steal of a deal.

      I didn’t know Blow Pops made pops with chocolate flavored centers. I always just assumed they were all gum… maybe you’re thinking of Tootsie Rolls?

      • noemii says:

        Yeah, Tootsie Roll Pops .
        you know they got it from Blow Pops . Almost everything is identical except blow pops are Way cooler 🙂

        I never wear mascara, so i thought spending six bucks on two mascaras isn’t bad, even if they do suck .lol.
        my eyes are really sensitive to mascaras for some reason. plus, i wear glasses so i’ve never seen the point ..my friends about rip my head off when i say that hahaha

  9. Kim says:

    Grape Blow Pops have been my go-to candy since I was a kid – we have an industrial sized box of them in our snack drawer right now (and suspiciously, all the grape are long gone).

    Oh, and your lashes look great too!

  10. gio says:

    Your lashes look amazing and so long! Looks like the mascara gives some volume too. I think I need to check this out.

    Love these haikus!

  11. mkdallas says:

    Karen, your lashes look like paintbrushes, lol! You don’t even need mascara, dang it. Loving the haikus and as always, the pics of his Royal Hawtness Tabs make my day. I’m sure he’d prefer his blowpop to be gravy-flavored.

  12. DallasBrownEyes says:

    Wow, that is some amazing stuff! You go, girl!!!

    What is the difference between ‘black’ and ‘kohl black’?

  13. lexi says:

    Cool – I was interested in picking up a good drugstore tube of mascara once I’m finished with my plush lash. I’ll have to check this one out.

    Don’t you know a product isn’t fun unless it’s branded ‘EXTREME’?? Extreme lemonade? That better be so sour that I pucker until my forehead caves in…

    • Karen says:

      I think after you get the hang of the brush you’ll like this. 🙂

      Ergh, I sniffed the Lemonade one last night but couldn’t get myself to go there (wasn’t in a sour mood).

  14. Aniela says:

    You have amazing lashes Karen, I swear when I saw the first pic sans mascara I thought you actually had mascara on..and I was like wow thats pretty good lol
    love the haikus btw…i just wrote one for my bf a few weeks ago since he didnt even believe that i knew what a haiku was…the nERVE!
    anyways, tabs looks like a qt pie as always:)

    have an awesome day K!

  15. Glosslizard says:

    I finally splurged on a Sonia Kashuk lash brush (the snazzy kind with the long, contoured black handle) and all I can say is… why did it take me so flippin’ long?!? This thing separates my lashes like nothing I’ve ever tried before! I think it’s the extra-long metal teeth! I think it’s the perfect partner for the oh-so-affordable Rimmel mascaras (which are extending my time between pricey mascaras while not supplanting my deep-seated affections for Chanel and Armani)!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Glosslizard,

      What other Rimmel mascaras have you tried? Can you recommend any other good ones?

      • Glosslizard says:

        I recently tried Rimmel’s Lash Maxxx (yah, lots of x’s!) waterproof, and their Maxx (only two this time) Volume Flash mascaras. I thought both were very good in terms of lash appearance and were pretty long-lasting! I like Volume Flash better in terms of performance, but Lash Maxxx is nice because I hate spending a lot on waterproof mascaras! Not much clumping or smudging, but neither were really good in terms of pigmentation! All in all, great for the price, but not enough to wean me off of pricier options when I have the cash! 🙂

  16. Kathryn says:

    I actually tried the Extreme Lemonade Blow-Pop and it was so sour I couldn’t finish eating it! haha.

  17. Marce says:

    LOL Tabs looks as though he might kill if someone takes away those Blow-Pops!
    I love this mascara, I have good luck with Rimmel London! I tried this ages ago and loved it, it gives me volume and length, though the wand is weird, like you say. But for the price, I’ll have two, thanks! (No haiku for you today, I had a mouthful to say) 😀

    I have sudden urge
    To respond in haiku too
    Haiku rhymes with too

    That Rimmel ‘scara
    Makes your lashes so so long
    It is beautiful

    Wish Rite Aid would have
    A BoGo sale already
    I’d pick this up, yo

    Did sweet Tabs at least
    Share some of those lollipops
    With Miss long lashes?

    I bow down to you

    Karen, what’s your favorite drugstore mascara?

  21. Tatiana says:

    i’ve actually been using this mascara for awhile and i think it’s pretty good. it does a great job separating my lashes and defining them. i agree with your rating karen 🙂

    but i’m waiting for it to run out so i can go buy diorshow! yaaaaaaaaaa.

  22. Tiera says:

    Hi Karen! I had the original Glam’Eyes formula sometime last year and the thing I really didn’t like about it was how flimsy the applicator was. Is that what made the brush difficult for you to use? It so I think I’ll have to take a pass on this one… It does make your lashes look fab though!

  23. elle says:

    I like this mascara too, but I always stab myself in the eye with the brush. Not to mention it takes forever to dry. I think your lashes look best with one coat. Have a nice week

    thanks for the review!

    WHOA! This mascara looks freaking amazing on you! I have this mascara too but unfortunately, it the most I’ve ever seen a mascara de-curl my lashes aaand bend the tips of my lashes in really weird directions :-P. I love the brush though!

  26. laura says:

    I just stop using this and switch to Revitalash mascara so far its doing good!
