Another week, another mascara review; I must admit, mascaras are definitely my ultimate makeup guilty pleasure. I tend to have a handful on the go every couple of months (for try and test purchases only, obviously), as I love experimenting with ways to accentuate and define my naturally fair lashes. I always sway towards waterproof formulas as I find them the most long lasting and fuss free (no annoying transfer after a long day in the office).
The Rimmel London Wonder’full Mascara promises full volume without clumps due to its Argan enriched formula. It claims to leave lashes conditioned with a lightweight feel; sounds fabulous. Encased within an eye-catching gold bullet, it has a large ultra flex brush with soft bristles to ensure even, yet full coverage from root to tip, and priced at £7.99 it definitely falls into the budget-friendly bracket.
I have been using this mascara on my upper and lower lashes for the month or so, and I can’t say I have been left overly impressed. I do love the large brush as it is very similar to Max Factor False Lash Effect which is one of my all-time favourites. I also like the fact the formula is enriched with Argan Oil as you feel you are repairing the rocky relationship with your lashes after years of tugging and pulling to remove ample product. However, it definitely doesn’t give a volumised effect (even with the use of eyelash curlers), but rather leaves lashes limp, spidery and lifeless. Regardless, Rimmel is still one of most loved high street brands, but unfortunately this mascara didn’t quite tick all the boxes.
Have you tried the Rimmel London Wonder’full Mascara? What are your thoughts?
