Welcome to The Ladies Salon

I like the idea of a sisterhood of women coming together, sharing thoughts on everything from lipstick to gardening. I am blessed to have some awesome women friends who have shared some great ideas with me. Now I'd like to share what I've learned, what I'm still learning, with you. I also invite you to share your ideas and to become a friend and follower of The Ladies Salon. Welcome, Betty Ann

Mascara of the Month

Mascara of the Month: Rimmel Lash Accelerator

I'm not a big fan of cosmetic augmentation, but this Rimmel Lash Accelerator is great to use to enhance your eyelashes. The makers of this product claim that after you use their Lash Accelerator your lashes will instantly look up to 80% longer on the first application, and after a month, up to 117% longer. 

The mascara’s consistency is easy to spread, so it coats individual lashes and builds length on the ends. One of the Lash Accelerator's qualities is that you don't have to worry about smudging. The pigment doesn't flake or smear and it's also gentle and easy to remove with makeup remover. 

The theory is that the mascara's waxy texture keeps lashes soft and won't become brittle and break. Your lashes feel conditioned and moisturized. The formula contains several ingredients that soften and strengthen your lashes including biotin, peptides, keratin and bamboo extract.

After about a month you will notice a very satisfying enhancement to your lashes. They will become longer and thicker, plus you'll have a fantastic mascara to use as part of your makeup. So really, it's two products in one.  

Rimmel Lash Accelerator, $8, available at walmart.com.


  1. I'll have to give the mascara a try. Usually use waterproof to keep it from smudging, but it's very hard to remove. :(

  2. I know, I had that problem also, Lisa. One to try if this Lash Accelerator doesn't work well for you is Estee Lauder's Double Wear
    Zero-Smudge Lengthening Mascara. Of course it's more expensive, $21.00, but it really does not smudge!
