Rimmel Wonder’full Wake Me Up Mascara | £7.99

I have been a huge fan of the Rimmel Wake Me Up range, the foundation & concealer has been one of my all time drugstore favourites, thats why i was so excited to see them announce a mascara in the line. The new Rimmel Wonder’full Wake Me Up Mascara is all about cucumbers and giving eyes that wide eyed, wide awake look.


The mascara tube is exactly the same shape as the pervious Wonder’full mascara which was enriched with Argan oil, only this time round it’s bright green. (i’m guessing that has something to do with the cucumbers) i actually really like the green as it makes it super easy to spot. Onto the mascara itself, the precision brush is shaped to the lash-line to push lashes up and out. The mascara has a cooling sensation which i thought was pretty snazzy and not at all over powering, it makes your eyes feel more open and fresh. (if ever your eyes can feel fresh!) I also love how black the formula is and the cucumber scent is so refreshing, it does give you that morning energy boost you need. Although as for making my lashes look full and lifted i found it was a little disappointing.


Overall, if you are one of those people who find mornings pretty hard i think you will love the cooling sensation and the cucumber smell of new Rimmel Wonder’full Wake Me Up Mascara, but as for the formula, I applied two coats & found it made my lashes look a little clumped together and overall lacklustre. I wasn’t overly impressed for something which i had such high hopes for.


Are you a fan of the Rimmel Wake Me Up range? What do you think of this mascara?

    I like the concept of the mascara, but shame it didn’t match in terms of effect!

    Btw I got completely baffled when I first clicked on the post to read it as we’ve currently got the same blog template haha! Excellent taste lovely ;)

  • Ah I was going to buy this as I wanted a MY EYES ARE SO WIDE LOOK AT MY LASHES look. Might have to try something else now. I seem to be trying every drugstore mascara there is in an attempt to find something as good as They’re Real. It never happens. xx

      Try the colossal maybeline.. IT really works… andere the retro scandal eyes of rimmel.

  • I love the smell of cucumber – is that really weird?! It’s just so fresh! But I’m never really convinced by these type of mascaras x

  • I wasn’t wowed by the mascara either. The scent is nice but I find the wand too big and it doesn’t give much lift to my lashes, it also gets all over my eyelids no matter what I do which drives me crazy. It works ok as a every day mascara for me when I don’t want big lashes, but I wouldn’t buy it again or recommend it to anyone.
