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.*This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your continued support of Joyful Things!*
