Hey beauties! I recently picked up the Rimmel London Wonder’Full Wake Me Up mascara and after using it for about a month I decided to tell you if it’s worth the hype or not… in my opinion at least! 🙂 I hope you find this helpful xoxo
If you wanna find out what I think about this mascara and see how it works on my lashes, you can either keep reading this post or watch the YouTube video below 🙂
Okay so I’ve seen quite a lot of people raving about this mascara and about the Wonder’Lash one. Not gonna lie, I’ve seen some really good demos on both mascaras, so I decided to pick the latter one. However somehow my brain stopped working for a few minutes and I added the Wonder’Full to my cart. Oh well, since everybody hypes about it, I was still excited to try it out! After all, there are some Rimmel products that I really love and I have pretty high expectations from a product that lots of people talk about. And it’s only £7.99 at Superdrug* or Boots*, which is not that bad.
I suppose it’d be easier if I would quote what Rimmel London says this mascara is supposed to do vs what I think it does/doesn’t.
Quoted from Superdrug’s website (that’s where I picked this up from): “Rimmel London Wonder’Full Wake Me Up Mascara with Vitamins & Cucumber. Eyes look wide-awake all day with defined volume, amazing lift & length! Instantly energizes with its light and refreshing scent.“
♡ Yeah it does give a little bit of volume. I have quite voluminous lashes naturally so it’s nothing mind blowing for me, but yeah it does give volume.
♡ Length? No. That’s where I have to disagree. I wish it did because I’ve seen it work nice on others but for me it’s like I keep applying and applying and my lashes don’t get any longer. And since length is what I am looking for in a mascara, this is a bit of disappointment.
♡ The scent is quite nice… it smells like cucumbers, and even though I believe I never owned a scented mascara before, this doesn’t bother me or my sensitive-ish eyes anyhow. However you can only feel the scent when you open the tube and apply it, it’s not like you’re gonna smells like cucumbers all day long haha.
♡ They mention “all day”… so this means lasting power. It’s pretty good actually. On a normal work day I need it on for a good 15-16 hours (maybe even more?) and it lasts well without smudging or moving around.
” Wake up to uplifted lashes! Precision brush wraps each and every lash with defined, clump-free volume, lifting & stretching them all the way up for an eye awakening effect! ”
♡ By uplifted I suppose they mean it curls your lashes and opens your eyes up. I use a lot of black eyeliner as it is my personal preference, so I can’t say much about opening my eyes up. Curling… hm.. a bit of a curl is another thing that my lashes have naturally, but yeah I suppose I do get a bit more curl from the mascara.
♡ Clump free? Yeah, I suppose, even though it can get clumpy at times, depending on the application.
♡ “Precision brush“… another statement I have to disagree with. Or maybe I am not sure what precision means for them, LOL. The brush is quite fat/big, and with the mascara’s wet formula is preeeeetty easy to mess up and get mascara all over your eyelids. It happened to me a few times, even though I am used to other wet formula mascaras or fat brushes… another thumbs down. And since I just mentioned the formula… I figured I’d lastly talk about transfering: I feel like it transfers quite easily until it sets – after I’m done applying it if I move my eyes like look up/down it can get a bit messy. Don’t know why it transfers so easily, I’ve never had this problem with another mascara.
♡ Bottom line: Not a bad mascara, but not good in my opinion. I will continue to use it when I go to work until it runs/dries out (yeah, I am cheap like that) since I don’t really care about outstanding makeup or super long lashes when I work 12hours/day, lol.
♡ Would I repurchase? No way. It’s not what I am looking for in a mascara. While I appreciate the lasting power and the bit of volume it gives, if a mascara doesn’t give me enough length, I would never bother with it again.
♡ Would I recommend it? Noooot really… I mean yeah of course, do your research and decide if it is something you want or not. What doesn’t work out for me the way I want it to, other people may enjoy. However I would personally recommend adding a couple bucks and getting the L’oreal Telescopic.
And I guess that’s all for today’s post! I hope you guys found this helpful 🙂
