Review: Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush mascara

I just started on a tube of Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush mascara in black last week.  I usually use regular black mascara, or "very black" if I'm feeling more adventurous.

So far, I'm not really loving this one.  I didn't really have any expectations, since I basically bought it to fill out an online order that needed to get to a certain dollar amount.

The brush is big--almost the size of the original Diorshow brush.  The handle is short, almost like a trial-size mascara--I find if it's a shorter brush, it can make it a bit harder to work with.  The brush is a conventional brush, not one of the new-fangled plastic ones (which I do enjoy.) 

I found this mascara hard to remove--I only buy washable mascara for this very reason.  I don't want to pull out a bunch of lashes using a waterproof formula (or be forced to use something greasy to remove it.  My skin is oily enough on its own!)

Product claim:  A lush stroke of lash-enhancing color! Pigment-rich formula defines lashes in wearable color for look-at-me eyes.

Does it clump?  This is an important question!  I had a little bit of clumping, but nothing horrible.

Does it deliver on its claim?  Well, the product description is a bit vague, but based on the brush shape I'm assuming it's supposed to be a volumizing mascara.  It fine, but it didn't knock my socks off.

Would I buy it again?  Probably not, there are more exciting mascaras out there.
