Rimmel Wonder’Full Wake Me Up Mascara



I bought this mascara on a whim in the supermarket.  I didn’t really need it, but I was curious about how exactly it would ‘wake me up’.  According to their website it has a ‘precision brush [to add] volume, lift and length’.

I’m afraid for me it did neither add volume, create lift, or add length.  It was very ‘wet’ (that should be a plus, right?) and so all it did was weigh my lashes down.  I have to admit, I am blessed with reasonably long and healthy lashes, so they can get weighed down by heavy mascaras.  I do love to curl them though – a step I do even on makeup-free days.  I find this opens my eyes, and makes me look slightly more bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.  I suppose I was hoping that Rimmel’s new eye opener would help with that.  Alas, it was not to be.  Would I recommend it?  Possibly.  If you are looking for a reasonably cheap mascara with a mahoosive wand (the brush is nearly as big as… well, a very large thing), then go for it.  However, if, like me, you are still searching for the Holy Grail of mascaras, that volumises, lifts and curls, then I would give this one a miss.


I purchased this from money taken from our weekly food budget.  Don’t worry, the kids still ate that week.  Just a little less.  This post is not sponsored.
