Product Review | Rimmel Wonder'Lash Lift Me Up Mascara

Tuesday, July 28, 2015

Holy toledo! I don't usually review single mascaras, but this release didn't coincide with anything else for me, and I needed to tell you about it because I have NEVER been this impressed by a Rimmel mascara. Ever.

I actually quite liked the Argan Oil Wonder'Lash one, I mean it was a decent mascara for a more natural look and really lengthening. But I didn't LOVE it, you know? 

But the new Wonder'Lash Lift Me Up Mascara I picked up because it piqued my interest. A formula with vitamins & cucumber (like that matters, then again I love gimmicky stuff) for eye-awakening volume & lift. I was "like yeah, alright, I'll try this but it'll probably suck..."

Man was I wrong! I was put off at first by the smell, as it's straight up cucumber, which I usually associate with makeup removers or lotions? But I got used to it, and then kinda liked it. I mean usually mascara smells pretty funky, so I guess that's nice? It's meant to be "energizing". I don't how much the cucumber and vitamins do for your lashes, it must be good for them, but it's too soon to say if it'll make my lashes healthier or anything.

So beyond the gimmick (or actual properties), it has a handy dandy hourglass shaped brush, which I'm a fan of (the Too Faced Better Than Sex has a similar brush) and the formula is neither too wet nor too dry, it's a nice in between consistency.

Upon first application, I was thoroughly impressed ; It curls, separates, lengthens and adds some decent volume as well. My lashes are pretty straight, and even with curling them beforehand, they never hold the curl as long as I'd like them too. Until now! 

Let me show you real quick and then give you the run down:

Wear: 5/5 Holds the curl all day! No smudging, no flaking, no complaints.
Removal: 3.5/5 The wear is so intense it's actually not the easiest to remove. Not only do the little messes I tend to make while applying stick to the stick more than I'd like, end of the day removal, no matter what I use seems impossible to get it 100% off. Which I only realize the next morning when I awake with subtle panda eyes...But it's a small price to pay!
Final score: 4.5/5 Simply amazing! Let's call it "natural drama". It's exactly what I wanted it to be and more!

What do you think? Did you love the Argan Oil Wonder'Lash? Will you try this one?
Talk to you soon!
