As all of you may know, I’ve been in something of a mascara drought as of late. With a lot of the big launches falling short of my admittedly high expectations. So imagine my delight when I was traipsing though a Chemist Warehouse back in late August to see a brand spanking new mascara launch from Rimmel. Namely, the Wonder’Volume Thrill Seeker Mascara. I’ve been testing this out behind the scenes for a little while now and I have a ton of thoughts. So, if you want to see if Rimmel has added a little thrill into my life, just keep reading!
RIMMEL LONDON WONDER’VOLUME THRILL SEEKER MASCARA – $23.95 – chemistwarehouse.com.au
The Thrill Seeker Mascara is housed in a sleek, red, cylindrical style packaging with silver detail. It’s very slim and easy to store. I also love the shade of red. It’s bright, but not too bright. Definitely eye catching! I cannot find any information as to whether the formula is vegan. However Rimmel is now certified cruelty free. The Thrill Seeker Mascara contains 8ml of product.
I’ve been heartbroken by a few mascara wands this year. But when I opened up my tube for the first time, I knew that we were in business. The wand is described on the Rimmel website as peanut shaped. Which I do find adorable. But it is that curved, hourglass shape that I really love. And it has synthetic hair bristles. If I had to nitpick, I would say that the wand is maybe a millimetre too long. As I do somehow manage to ding the tip on my face.
The formula for the Thrill Seeker mascara is a weird one. For reasons that I’ll explain in a minute. All I’ll say is that this formula has a whipped consistency. Which leaves it feeling super light on the lashes, whilst still producing a lot of volume. While this mascara does layer well, I have had few instances where my lashes got dangerously close to clump city. But I’ve always been able to comb it out.
The two big claims that come with the Thrill Seeker mascara were lift and volume. And I will say, it ticks both of those boxes! I was surprised at how lifted my lashes were when you consider how thick the formula looked at first glance. But the big thing with this mascara is volume. This is a very volumising mascara. It doesn’t give the effect of falsies. But it definitely enhances your existing lashes. Especially if you’re like me and you lack in that area.
Now for the 9 hour wear test. And y’all, I am absolutely delighted to tell you that the Thrill Seeker Mascara passes with flying colours! When I mentioned that I found the formula to be weird, what I meant was that a formula that thick and whipped should leave my eyes looking smudgy AF. But once this mascara is on, it doesn’t budge! I had the same lift by 5pm than I did when I first applied it at 7.30am. There is no flaking, no smudging, no transfer. Nothing! And we are hitting the high 30’s as far as temperature goes. So I really put this mascara through it’s paces. And it wears just as well with makeup as it does without. Rimmel? What witchcraft did you add to this mascara? I need to know!
Holy moly, y’all. It only took 10 months but I think we finally have a contender. The Wonder’Volume Thrill Seeker Mascara is currently sitting at no. 1 on my top mascara rankings. And I cannot recommend it enough. And it seems like y’all agree with me already. Because in the time between me picking this mascara up and this review coming out, the Thrill Seeker Mascara has actually gone viral online because it’s just that good. So, if you spot it while you’re out and about, grab it! Have you tried the Rimmel London Wonder’Volume Thrill Seeker Mascara? Let me know in the comments.
Cheers and love
