* ~ * THE MASCARA * ~ *
The mascara is made by Rimmel who is a well known cosmetics company, whom make a large range of different make up and products. The mascara creates 2 different lash looks using just one brush. The particular mascara I purchased is not waterproof, how-ever they do have a waterproof version and the cap is blue rather than pink. The mascara comes in one colour which is black. The top brush (black top cap) is perfect for the day which separates your lashes to give them length. The second brush (pink top) is great for a night out giving your lashes volume and thickness. This is a new mascara from rimmel which gives you 2 looks in one tube of mascara so it seems as though it's really good value for money. After doing some re-search I can't find another mascara that creates 2 different looks in one tube. I expect other brand's of cosmetics may look into this and possibly introduce other mascara's like this one.
* ~ PRICE/AVALIABILITY ~ *
I purchased this from Boots when it was on special offer just before Christmas, so I got about £2-£3.00 off the original price which is about £7.99. You can also buy this in superdrug for £7.99; how-ever it's currently on offer for £4.99.
* ~ * USING THE MASCARA * ~ *
Before using the mascara, I didn't actually realise you were meant to use the 2 mascara wand's for 2 different looks so I was using the mascara different to how they say to use it. Before using mascara I always use eye-lash curlers to help give my eye-lashes some extra curl and length. I then unscrewed the wand with the black cap, the bristles on the brush looked quite thin and it was a thin wand rather than a fat chunky one with a big brush. I used this twice over my eye-lashes, which separated then and gave them a little length. I then went on to use the next wand afterwards as I thought this is how you were meant to use the mascara. The second wand with the pink cap had a thicker, rounder brush and you could see that there was plenty of mascara on the wand. I then used this twice on each of my eyes to give my eyes a glamorous evening look. The mascara coated my lashes so they became a bit thicker and black.
After reading how you were actually meant to use the mascara I then tried the mascara again on different occasions so I could assess the different looks. I was just going to town for the day and out for a meal with my boyfriend and his mum so I opted for a more natural, subtle look which was the day look mascara. This is the wand with the black cap. I applied the mascara after applying my eye-liner and the eye-liner separated my lashes nicely and gave them length. This gave my eye's a more natural look and was suitable for the day, how-ever this doesn't really make your lashes look very dark, so if you prefer a darker look this may not be the one for you to use.
I was getting ready for a night out on the town so I wanted dark, thicker lashes that would look good with my Smokey eye make-up so on this occasion I used the wand with the pink cap. The brush is much larger so coated my lashes well with mascara making them look darker and more noticeable. This was good for a night-out as it looked more suitable for the evening.
* ~ * RESULTS/OVERALL OPINION * ~ *
The mascara is easy to apply, no matter which wand you use. My eyes stayed looking great through-out the day and night, so the mascara is long lasting and didn't flake off during the day leaving black residue around my eyes. The mascara is easily removed with facial wipes or make up remover, as this mascara isn't waterproof you don't need to rub it too much before it soon comes off. I have quite sensitive eyes, and the mascara was kind to them and didn't make them feel dry or irritated. It's great that you can get 2 different looks out of this mascara in the one tube, and this is perfect if you like a more subtle look during the day but want darker, thicker lashes at night. I actually prefer using the mascara how I was before, which was using the day mascara first to give my lashes length and then to apply the night mascara on the top. I feel as though this make's my lashes thicker, longer and they stand out more, so I have continued using the mascara in this way. In terms of value I think it's really good value, compared to other mascara's available to buy and I will definitely be buying this again. I have to give this product 5 out of 5 stars as it lives up to what it claims and more.
