Review! - Rimmel Scandaleyes Flex Mascara

I picked up another tube of Rimmel mascara, hoping to find one that I like as much as their Rimmel Volume Accelerator Mascara.

The Rimmel website says:
Get buildable, big volume!
Finally, a big volume mascara that won't leave your lashes stiff or brittle, so you can build drama from day to night!
SCANDALEYES LYCRA FLEX mascara featuring an exclusive flexible formula with Lycra Technology makes lashes look full and voluptuous while remaining soft, never stiff or brittle. The MaxDensity brush covers the whole lash line with one effortless coat to reveal and plump every lash. Because lashes never become stiff, you can create natural volume in the morning and build full-on scandalous false lash volume at night – without needing to remove your mascara.
Don't settle for brittle volume, get lashes that are full and flexible! Layer it on as thick as you dare!

The Good:
Yeah.  See "The Bad", below.

The Bad:
It clumped like crazy on the first application, first day opened.  Maybe I got a bad batch?  I added a tiny bit of boiling water to it on the second day, to see if that would break up the clumps, and no luck.  It was so clumpy that it was unusable.

The Verdict:
I threw it away.  It is possible that I got a hold of a tube that had gone bad, but I'm not going to bother buying any more Rimmel mascaras, except for the Volume Accelerator Mascara.  None of the ones I have tried have performed as well as that one, and I feel like I'm wasting my money.
