New Rimmel Wonder’Lash Volume Colourist Mascara with Lash-Tint Complex For Over Time Lash Tinting AND Instant Volume


Feel naked and exposed without mascara? Don’t be scared to go bare! Rimmel’s revolutionary new mascara reveals more lashes…even when you’re NOT wearing it! New Volume Colourist Mascara is Rimmel’s first-ever mascara that, gradually over time, makes bare lashes darker. AND, in an instant, the volumising formula loads lashes with jetblack impact. Open your eyes to darker, sexier, more noticeable lashes!

Impromptu weekend plans…unscheduled sleepovers…we all have times when we wish we were mascara-ready. Going au naturel can be a daunting prospect! Bare lashes can lack eye-framing definition. And because they tend to be fairer at the tips, they appear shorter, less visible and more lacklustre.

Thankfully, Volume Colourist Mascara spells the end of dull, invisible, make-up-free lashes. Its semi-permanent lash-tint complex progressively blackens bare lashes every time you wear it so that, from 2 weeks onwards of regular usage, your naked lashes look DARKER FROM ROOT TO TIP! Your beautiful bare lashes are more visible, appear longer and have more impact because they’re blacker to their very ends. Ingenious!

No compromise! Volume Colourist Mascara delivers an immediate volumised hyper-black lash-look. You get the instant lash fullness and darkness you crave. It’s time to remove your make-up? No problem! This mascara marvel is easy to lift-off with regular eye make-up remover.

WHAT IT IS: BREAKTHROUGH FORMULA, Eye-enhancing lashes—with and without mascara—come courtesy of Rimmel’s innovative multi-tasking formula. Unique combination of creamy, ultra-black lash volumizing formula and Lash-Tint Complex with natural colorant, gives 24/7 impact. The more you use, the more natural tinting colourants are delivered to the surface of your lashes, gradually making your bare lashes appear darker and your eyes pop!

Overtime: lash-tint complex with natural colorant gradually darkens the colour of your bare lashes to help them appear more visible from root to tip from 2 weeks onwards of continuous usage. The non-permanent tint will wear off gradually after the last usage.

Instantly: tapered lash-intensifying brush wraps every lash with blacker than black pigments, making them instantly fuller and longer.

Like your lashes intensely inky? Volume Colourist Mascara comes in two powerful shades: Black and Extreme Black. Each is presented in an edgy twisted pack with a graduated colour scheme that evokes lash-tinting over time. The pack has a lacquered gun-metal pink cap that fades into a black bottle decorated with pink hot foil lettering.

Get all in a flutter for Rimmel’s new mascara innovation. Whether you’re partying on Saturday night or chilling on Sunday morning, Volume Colourist Mascara reveals darker, more impactful lashes—with and without mascara! Get the London look.

This is my new to-go-to Mascara for the Fall! I like that my lashes look fuller!

The Untold Story Behind the Miracle on the Hudson – Sully


This story, based on the real life story that took place on Thursday, January 15th, 2009 when the world witnessed the “Miracle on the Hudson” as Captain, Chesley Sullenberger, nicknamed “Sully” glided his disabled plane onto the frigid waters of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 aboard. However, even as Sully was being heralded by the public and the media for his unprecedented feat of aviation skill, an investigation was unfolding that threatened to destroy his reputation and his career. Tom Hanks portrayal as Sully is the heart and soul of this film. KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Gerry O. comments, “Out of all the intense films released this year so far, Sully is the best one, hands down. Out of all the nonfiction films released this year, Sully is the greatest. From spectacular directing to emotional acting, Sully is easily one of the best films of 2016.” See his full review below.

Out of all the intense films released this year so far, Sully is the best one, hands down. Out of all the nonfiction films released this year, Sully is the greatest. From spectacular directing to emotional acting, Sully is easily one of the best films of 2016.

Interestingly enough, although this film may have a few action scenes, it shouldn’t be branded as an action movie. It is full-on intense drama, with two or three jokes that are original and funny, but don’t turn the film into a comedy. The story itself can also be considered an emotional and physical dramatic adventure that changes the lives of the characters forever.

Sully begins when U.S. Airways flight 1549 lands in the water in the Hudson river after both engines are destroyed by birds. Luckily, not one passenger is injured and this is due to the skill of both rescue teams and pilot Sully Sullenbrger (Tom Hanks) and First Officer Jeffrey Skiles (Aaron Eckhart). Unfortunately, the nightmare is not over. Even though all passengers are in safety, it is still a major question if Sully should have landed the plane in the water and if he might have had enough speed and altitude to reach the runway at an actual airport.

This is a very famous story that happened in 2009, but many people do not know what happened after the plane water landed. Sully truly shows all the events of this flight. Another amazing aspect of the film is the acting. Both Tom Hanks and Aaron Eckhart do phenomenal portrayals of the pilots. Not only do the two look so much like the actual people, they also got their personalities right too. The two actors excel in the scenes where they keep imagining the crash, and it clearly affects them day after day. Clint Eastwood has directed many wonderful films, but Sully, without doubt, is one of his best. The story does not feel like it lasts 96 minutes and I was surprised when it ended. Sully really does keep you on the edge of your seat using cinematography that makes you feel like you are a part of the movie, acting that is emotional and dramatic and even special effects that make it look very real. Something to note, the film was shot with IMAX cameras so seeing it in IMAX theaters gives you the best possible experience

My favorite scene is the actual plane crash. From taking off, to the passengers getting into rescue boats, this scene keeps your heart beating very fast. I personally suffer from a fear of flying and it pumped me full of adrenaline. I could not blink until I found out what happened next. The special effects of the plane going down in the middle of New York looks very realistic and intense. On top of that, the emotional acting of not only the pilots, but the passengers and the flight attendants brings even more drama to the scene. It is easily the most intense scene in the whole film and, because of cinematography, it makes you feel like you are a part of it, is borderline scary.

 is a very mature story. And though it lacks adult content, language or gore, it is geared for a mature audience because of its intense and dramatic scenes. It may be too intense for younger viewers so I recommend it for ages 12 to 18. I definitely give Sully 5 out of 5 stars for its spectacular directing, wonderful cinematography, emotional acting and realistic special effects.
