I'm really picky when it comes to mascara. The formula has to be just right, not too thick and definitely not watery. Even the brush has to be just right. Though I have go-to mascara's, I'm always open to trying new ones. I haven't used many Rimmel mascara's so after seeing an ad for a NON CLUMPING(!!) mascara (every girls dream), I had to try the Shake It Fresh.

On my first use, I did notice that the consistency was a bit watery, which I didn't like. But to be fair, every mascara that is brand new has a smoother consistency than one that has been used a few times. So I didn't let that bother me. The brush was kind of harder than most other mascara wands that I'm use to using, so I had to be a little careful and not apply too hard. After building up the thickness by not shaking the tube, whenever I did to freshen the mascara, the watery consistency would unfortunately come back. Now don't get me wrong. I know exactly that is what it's supposed to do. It's supposed to be like opening a new mascara upon every use. So, it all comes down to preference. I liked this mascara whenever the thickness would build up, but its meant to be shaken. Everything isn't for everyone. But I'm still glad I tried it. Now here are my faves:
