Round 2, Part 2: LashGASM vs Lycra Lash Extender

A few days late, but here is the other half of Round 2 of Mascara March Madness. For this post I will be reviewing Rimmel's Lycra Lash Extender. They promise 60% more length and 50% more curve. I certainly don't have the tools to measure that accurately (or at all) so let's see what the visuals show!


It's definitely an improvement from my bare lashes, but I wouldn't consider this length anything to get excited about. I will give credit where credit is due: Lycra Lash Extender did have a very nice application. The mascara went on easily and evenly, with zero clumping. It separated my lashes a bit but it didn't really plump them up much. There wasn't much added curl, either. Rimmel's Lycra Lash Extender isn't the worst mascara I've ever used, but it's definitely not the best. As far as volume, length, and curl go, you can definitely get more bang for your buck from other products. Because of the ease of application, however, I would recommend this mascara to someone who is new to the world of makeup, or someone looking for a mascara that they can quickly apply on their way out the door.
