I'm excited to be sharing this exclusive review with you all coming soon to you in July. I had the opportunity to test out the new SNEEK PEAK Rimmel London USA Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara that was sent as a complimentary from +Influenster.
DISCLAIMER: I received these products complimentary from +Influenster for testing purposes.
COMING SOON TO YOU IN JULY 2013!!!!
This is Rimmels London FIRST ultra lengthening mascara that defies the laws of lash length!
- Length that defies limits
- Formula with Micro-Fibres
- Instant wow FACTOR: Extends lashes by up to 99%
- Lash-catching brush grabs every lash to perfection while separating. NO CLUMPS!
This mascara comes in TWO shades: Black & Extreme Black
I recieved the Black shade and I have to say it is pretty intense so I can only imagine how the Extreme Black would look.
Rimmel's new Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara enhances and extends your lashes beyond the limits for INSTANTLY longer and remarkably stronger lashes! The Grow Lash Complex of Procapil, Keratin and antioxidants conditions lashes for soft, lush beauty day after day. After 30 days, lashes appear longer, stronger and more numerous! The lash-catching brush gives you perfect separation for a clump free result and the new micro-fibre formula allows lashes to stay flexible, never stiff and brittle.
Now this is the FUN PART of this blog. I get to go deeper into the ingredients and it's functions. That's what this blog is all about! The ingredients are:
[May Contain/Peut Contenir/+/-: CARMINE (CI 75470), CHROMIUM HYDROXIDE GREEN (CI 77289), CHROMIUM OXIDE GREENS (CI 77288), FERRIC FERROCYANIDE (CI 77510), IRON OXIDES (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), MICA, TITANIUM DIOXIDE (CI 77891), ULTRAMARINES (CI 77007),MICA]
I want to expound on The Grow-Lash Complex of Procapil.
According to http://www.procapil.org/
Procapil is a new breakthrough formula that strengthens the hair and prevents hair loss naturally. Procapil combines vitaminated matrikine with apigenin and oleanolic acid to form 2 powerful functions that target the main areas of hair loss.
- The first function facilitates the communication of cells and holds these cells together in order to prevent the effects of DHT. DHT stands for Dihydrotestosterone which is a chemical derivative of testosterone which plays a major role in hair loss in men and women. It is formed when the metabolism of androgen interacts with an enzyme named 5-alphareductase. It’s generally found in the prostate glands, testes, adrenal glands and hair follicles. When DHT reaches the dermal papilla cells-which divide and differentiate to form new hair follicles- it undermines the absorption of essential nutrients for healthy hair follicles. Fortunately, with scientific improvements, Procapil greatly reduces the effect of DHT on hair follicles.
- The second function increases blood flow in the scalp which allows the hair to be well nourished, resulting in thickening of thin starving hair.
**Procapil is NORMALLY found in Shampoos, Conditioners and Serums.
MY THEORY: Being that this is the first mascara that I know of that contains the ingredient of procapil my theory is while it may temporarily strengthen the lashes upon contact, I don't believe that your lashes will grow with the ingredient because it would have to have some contact with the root of the lashes along with being stimulated. Most don't apply mascara to the root of the lashes let alone stimulate the root with the mascara formula on there (NO ONE DOES THAT) and even if they did it wouldn't do much if nothing at all because it's not getting any stimulation. And because the hair strand itself is dead I hardly believe that you will see a difference. Now it may nourish the hair strand upon contact but you won't see any difference when it comes to growth. Because hair grows from the root. Which means the root would have to be nourished not the actual hair strand. That's why I stand firm on my theory. Mind you this is just my theory based on scientific facts about the functions of the hair. Also if you refer back to the top it said "After 30 days, lashes APPEARS longer, stronger and more numerous!" Which in my opinion means it's not scientifically proven that you will see growth in your lashes. I think if consistently using the mascara the brush itself will train your lashes. And through the use of it in 30 Days your lashes will appear longer but it won't be because of the Growth Complex but because it has been stretched. Sort of like when a African american male trains his hair to form waves, or if a woman with relaxed hair was training her hair to wrap a certain way. Or a great example is being that I'm natural if I wanted to stretch my hair I could do a braid or twist out leave it in for 5 days and my hair will take on the form of the protective style because it has been stretched for a certain amount of days. (MAKE SENSE????) This is just my theory though as I said. I'm no scientist.
Now let's talk about the Keratin!
KERATIN is a fibrous protein forming the main structural constituent of hair, feathers, hoofs, claws, horns and etc. So this is what's giving you the firmness in your lashes. The mascara is not waterproof but it does give you some form of protein to strengthen your lashes. Which is why it's not brittle.
The ANTIOXIDANTS in the mascara provides the nutrients & vitamin that your lashes need.
I can't deny that your lashes are getting the nutrients it needs however when you put two and two together. I just don't believe your lashes will grow with this formula.
But I can say for the most part this is a WONDERFUL mascara probably one of the best mascaras I've ever tried and tested.
The fact of the matter is you do see INSTANT results in the length! It does define the lashes, it does separate the lashes AND DEPENDING on how well you apply the mascara using this AWESOME mascara wand you may get some volume. OH and NO CLUMPS!!! I like to think this mascara is magical in some way. The magic is more in the wand to me then the actual formula. Although they both work hand in hand. But I believe you are getting the effect of longer lashes because of the wand itself. The bristles are like no other mascara wand I've dealt with. This mascara wand in particular is made of silicone it has a rubbery texture which gives it the flexibility you need to grab, separate, extend and define the lashes. The shape is pretty typical
Now lets talk about the brush!
As you can see in my before photo I have what I call "barely there" lashes. The odds of you seeing my lashes is if you're looking from an angle. I have very short and curly lashes. When I look for mascara I look for something that will lengthen and add volume to my lashes also I like a medium to small brush. This brush is a medium size brush and unlike many of the mascara wands this particular wand has comb like bristles. And this will help grab the lashes, also it will help define, separate and lengthen. Because of the type of brush this mascara has it prevents clumping. What I also love about this mascara is the intensity it gives to my lashes. It has a built in formula The Grow-Lash Complex of Procapil, Keratin, and antioxidants that promotes growth, thickness and conditions lashes for soft, lush beauty day after day. So within 30 days I hope to see a difference in my lashes on the top and bottom. I know my lashes will never look like @lilpumpkinpie05 but this is a far jump from my before photo. Would I purchase this again??? HECK YEAH I WOULD! Thank you so much Rimmel London and Influenster for this opportunity!
