A little while ago I went into Superdrug to pick up some argan oil and at the checkout I was asked if I’d also like to pick up the Rimmel London wonder’full mascara, which contains argan oil. Because I have no willpower I thought ‘yeah, sure, why not?’, but as soon as I left the store I immediately regretted my decision and the ease at which I had given in. It was almost as if I knew what the outcome of this product would be before I’d even tried it out.
Rimmel Wonder’full Mascara – £7.99
Well, this mascara isn’t the best.
What I first noticed about it is that it seemed really flimsy, everything from the packaging to the applicator just screamed “cheap”. A wonderful thing about this mascara is that it doesn’t clump, and finding a mascara that doesn’t clump is a very hard thing to do, however even though it doesn’t clump, it really doesn’t make a huge difference to my lashes, and this can be seen in the ‘after’ photo.
I really don’t wear mascara very often as I find it too tedious to remove, so whenever I do use it I always want to use a mascara that will make a big difference. I guess if you’re looking for a very subtle daytime look, this mascara could be a good one for you to try, however I wouldn’t suggest it, for £7.99 you could get a much better quality drug store mascara.
The moral of this story, don’t be like me – have some willpower when you buy.
In other news – congratulations to Rachel who won my MAC Studio Fix Fluid giveaway! Don’t worry if you entered and didn’t win as John Frieda has kindly offered to sponsor another giveaway on my blog and this will take place at the end of September. I wasn’t sure if another giveaway this soon would be a bit too much/a bit annoying, buttttt, I don’t see what could ever be wrong about giving away free things to people that support this blog!
I also think that mascara is so hard to remove and requires a lot of work hahah 😀 :heart:
I’m very much the same at checkouts – its why I love self-service!
Great honest review – my eyelashes are really blonde so I have to have a good mascara or it looks like I have none! xx
Thanks for sharing this review.
