Rimmel Day 2 Night Glam Eyes Mascara Review

I've never done a review before but I've really fancied doing one for a while now, I know I don't usually focus on beauty on my blog but I do actually have a rather large interest in cosmetics! I thought I'd put my two pence worth in for the Rimmel Day 2 Night mascara.

I was quite intrigued by this mascara when it first came out as it was a new concept and I'd been using two separate mascaras for a while to make the most out of my lashes and have experimented with a variety of combinations, I bought this with the intention of saving time. I'd also heard a fair amount of positive reviews on Youtube, and it popped up in people's favourites videos a lot, so I decided to try it for myself.

Nothing particularly fancy about the packaging until you spot the lid. Essentially it has two lids, the first for length (black and slimmer) and the second pink for volume. It's quite clunky packaging, not the most attractive but certainly not the least either. Goes along the 'sexy, glamourous' theme with the pink and black with holographic writing.
P r o d u c t
The tube contains 9.5ml of product and retails at £7.99. Personally, it's slightly more than I usually pay for a mascara but it did feel as though I was almost buying two.

The formula of this mascara is wet. Much more liquidy than any other mascara I've used before, I was pretty shocked the first time I used it, that 9.5ml ain't gonna last you long if you put that much on each time! The next time I used it I scraped a lot of product off and things seemed to go much more smoothly. The lengthening brush is fine, just watch out for the volume one! I found the best way to apply this product is to use the volume one first and then the lengthening wand to remove any large clumps, even though I think you're meant to do it the other way round?

Basically, they're the same brush except one picks up loads of product and the other gets scraped off. It's your pretty average brush with fibre bristles, nothing too fancy about it. I'd also like to mention that I found the lengthening wand a tad tricky to apply as it's on a longer stick than I'm used to so I didn't get as much control as I would've liked.
S t a y i n g  P o w e r
I wore this to a wedding, when we had the our ~Indian Summer~. Let me tell you, it was flipping hot in the venue however, the mascara stayed put! It does flake though if you touch/tamper with your eyelashes, but to be honest why would you want to start fiddling with your eyelashes?!
O v e r a l l ?
I'm on the fence with this mascara. I love the false eyelash look it gives - it defines my eyelashes from a distance. I also like the concept, depending on what eye make up you're going for you can choose what your eyelashes look like with just one product instead of two. However, I'm really not a fan of how much product comes out with the volume brush and how wet it is, I feel like it weighs my lashes down. I think if your a fan of thick clumpy lashes this product would be right up your street! I'd rate it a 6/10

Probably not, but that's because I like to try out lots of different mascaras! I don't think it's bad at all, now that I've used it for a good few months and it's dried up a bit it's much easier to work with.

So there you have it - I hope/think I covered everything. Have you tried this mascara? What did you think of it?


  1. Thank you for the comment on my blog! :) I love this mascara! I've nearly finished it though so I think I will definitely be buying it again. The one thing that annoys me is that the writing rubs off! xx

  2. The length side looks nice although to really get the most out of this mascara, I think I would use one coat of lengthening formula and then top it off with one coat of the volume formula. Have you tried this?

    1. Yep I have tried it, I didn't like the clumpiness though!

  3. This looks really good! I think I will try this out sometime! thanks!!


  4. Your lashes look fantastic. I always enjoy switching my mascaras, I always like to try new ones on the market. I've always wondered about this one so cheers for the review. :)

  5. It looks good. A little clumpy but still fine. Thanks for your honest opinion!

  6. Great mascara...your eyes are gorgeous!!
