Rimmel Wake Me Up Mascara
So, this is a new one from Rimmel – the first ever eye-awakening mascara! Whatever that is… Well, after my hen day at the weekend, I need anything to keep my eyes open, so I was game to give this a go.
The new Wonder’full Wake Me Up Mascara, to give it it’s full title, awakens your eyes, delivers clump-free volume, lift and length. It contains Pro Vitamin B5,
Vitamin E and cucumber extract to condition.
I’m not sure what the eye-awakening part is – but maybe the scent. Not many mascaras have a smell, but this smells fantastic, if you like cucumber. It has a lovely cucumber -fresh scent.
The other interesting thing about this mascara is the brush. Called the new ‘Precision Brush’, it is shaped to the lash-line to push lashes up and out. The brush is BIG. With a dip in the middle, so it hugs the lashes.
I kind of liked it, even though I am not a big BIG mascara brush fan! The mascara itself is fine – I don’t think it gave me overly long, or volumised lashes, and it’s not going to the top of my mascara list, but it might get on the everyday list, for the smell, if nothing else!
“The new Rimmel Wake Me Up Mascara provides voluminous definition for a beautiful wide eye look, and the clever formula leaves your lashes soft and hydrated,” says Kirstin Piggott, Rimmel London global makeup artist. “I also love the cooling sensation it gives to the lashes.”
Mmm. I’m not sure I got that last bit, Kirstin, but it’s a nice mascara. Rimmel fans, if you want to try it, it’s out May 20th.
