Rimmel Extra 3D Lash

I actually bought the Rimmel extra 3D lash mascara on Brogan's recommendation, she mentioned in a video that it's a purse friendly version of Benefit's They're Real (which I'm a massive fan of) and that pretty much sold it for me.

At £4.99 it's probably the cheapest mascara I've purchased in a while, and for everyday wear I'm impressed! Rimmel claim it volumises as well as lengthens and I'm hoping from the pictures above you can see it actually achieves this -  my lashes are kind of non existent to begin with and the 3D lash gave me amazing length after 2 coats.
It definitely leans more towards a lengthening mascara as I didn't notice any sort of curl at all, so with this one you'll need to whip the eyelash curlers out if you're after a fluttery "oh I naturally look like Bambi" look.

I'm not exactly sure where the 3D terminology comes into things, a quick read of the boots website tells me it's supposed to be the brush, but to me it just looks like a regular mascara brush? Or are all other mascaras animating their brushes nowadays? Who knows.

It also lasts the whole day in the office which is something I look for in anything I'm smearing on my face, the toilets at my work are gross and I do not want to be re applying in there during my lunch! Saying that, it removes nicely with a bit of baby lotion (the stuff of dreams), and hasn't irritated my eyes at all.

So for an affordable, everyday mascara I'm really impressed with this. Probably not one I'd reach for on a night out as it lacks the oomph factor, but if it's length your after then this is the one.



  1. This sounds like a good mascara especially the fact it lasts all day! xx

  2. Wow, this looks pretty great for a drugstore mascara- your lashes look lovely! And thanks for the before and after photos- always so helpful in a review :)


  3. For £4.99 that's pretty cheap these days! I expect the 3D terminology is just a bit of marketing ploy but it looks pretty good once it's applied!

  4. This sounds like a great mascara for such a low price! Love the way it looks on your lashes x
