So, I really go through mascaras. I think those of you that have read this site for any length of time probably noticed my near-constant state of trying out different mascaras. There are so many brands, sub-categories within the brands, and promises to be made by the mascaras. It gets crazy. However, I seem to have found a new favorite brand, replacing the old stand-by of Maybelline Great Lash (which stinks terribly and irritates my eyes now).
Rimmel London has amazing mascaras. You may remember such reviews as Monocles Popping Everywhere! and Baby Got Back. I have had much success with Rimmel mascaras, and the Glam'Eyes Day 2 Night Mascara is no exception.
So, what is the big hook that reels you in for this particular mascara? It gives you a lengthening and volumizing mascara in one convenient, hot pink tube. Other mascaras would have you believe that there is some magic formula that will give you the lashes you want, whether longer or thicker. Rimmel shows us that it isn't the brush or even the mascara formula that makes the difference, but the amount the brush picks up. You see, Day 2 Night is one tube with two different caps. One cap is to be loosened and used for length and the other for volume. After idiotically wondering how the two brushes fit into the normal-sized tube and whether there were two different wells of mascara inside, I realized that there is one brush and one formula. Removing the brush via the length cap removes more mascara than removing it via the volume cap.
Did I just BLOW YOUR MIND? No? Oh. On any account, let me show you what happens when you use the length vs volume caps:
