Rimmel’s new spokes model is Zooey Deschanel. I’d just like it to be known that this is one reason I’d buy more Rimmel Cosmetics. I love this girl. She’s like a living doll. Quite talented mind you but absolutely stunning as well!
Although I will say I’m not too keen on the displays I’ve seen so far featuring her. Check out my Spring 2011 Drugstore Cosmetic Slideshow to see the new Rimmel Glam Eyes Day 2 Night Mascara display. It doesn’t even look like her, I wouldn’t have it realized it was her had I not squinted and read the display….
Anyone see it? Whatcha think of Zooey’s look?
Jump ahead for the new Rimmel Glam Eyes Day 2 Night Mascara Review.
A two effect mascara that gives lashes volume, length, or both!
Essentially Rimmel Glam Eyes Day 2 Night Mascara is an exact dupe of MAC Haute & Naughty. Same idea, same concept, almost the same results but cheaper price tag. MAC’s version will run you $18, Rimmel’s version, not on sale, will get you at $9 and change, even $10 bucks if you’re rounding it off.
The mascara is one wand however it produces two effects. You unscrew the top part to reveal a brush that’s saturated with alot less product (for length) and you’ll unscrew the bottom part to saturate the brush more (for volume). It’s the same wand, it’s merely a matter of the wand being “strained” through a long tube therefore capturing less product. It’s a interesting effect however no longer unique considering MAC created the concept a few months ago.
The brush is pretty standard and has a nice round brush with bushy bristles. When using the length option you’ll get decently longer lashes and a more natural finish with a lighter weight in the formula however when using the volume effect you’ll experience heavier lashes (due to the amount of product the brushes gets saturated with) and more fatter, fuller lashes.
For the most part it successfully does both the length and the volume trick quite well. Formula is nice and thick, lightweight when used one way, a bit heavier when used the other, but still manages to hold curl well enough sans running or smudging. The mascara just feels good and works well at what it does.
Some caution should be uses during application of the volume effect since it does get a tad on the messy side also the mascara doesn’t build well so if you start off defining with the length applicator and following up with volume you have to be extra careful not to cause a bit of a mess.
- Anyone who wanted to try MAC Haute & Naughty but wanted a cheaper price tag!
- Anyone interested in a mascara that performs the feat of volume and length and gives you an option to choose between them.
- Anyone who wants natural lashes for the day and dramatic ones for the evening!
- Anyone wanting a mascara that builds well (use caution when building up because it does get a tad messy).
- Anyone who already owns MAC’s version (you seriously don’t need this, it’s pretty much the same product however MAC’s version is a bit better but not by much).
Overall I liked it alot but not sure how comfortable I am with the fact that it’s a carbon copy of MAC’s version. Aside from that I probably don’t necessarily need it since I already own MAC’s but it’ll be a good one when I run low on that one because I can easily get it on sale. If you see it in store and haven’t tried MAC’s version, I’d def get it, it’s a worth wild purchase considering the idea is interesting and the product performs quite well!
