Och, I really hoped that things would work out between Rimmel Wonderfully Real Mascara in Extra Black (£7.99) and me. After all, it does a very impressive job of beefing up lashes and making them look inky black. I love the dramatic effect it produces.
The 4mm nylon fibres in Rimmel Wonderfully Real Mascara are designed to grab on to the tips and along the sides of the lashes, instantly stretching and plumping them in the process for a lengthening and volumising effect. Meanwhile, the creamy formula of Rimmel Wonderfully Real Mascara also contains Argan Oil which nourishes the lashes. The brush, with its straight plastic bristles, is extremely easy to use – I loved the way it could reach right into the corners, and how it gave a pleasing curl to the lashes while simultaneously fanning them out.
As with the more natural look producing Rimmel Wonderfully Real Mascara in Black, the Extra Black version produces great results – but they are invariably marred by smudging, though I’ve found that the panda eyes don’t kick in quite as fast with the Extra Black as they did with the Black, and it doesn’t happen every time – just most!
I haven’t abandoned Rimmel Wonderfully Real Mascara yet – I’m putting up with the problems just now. But I wish it was a better performer…
