The two wands have different looks about them, the top cap ‘length”s wand is much longer and skinner, whilst the bottom cap ‘volume’ is much shorter and thicker. Both wands are simple to apply, there’s not much more fuss about it.
For those of you who don’t know me, or are new to my blog and haven’t seen my previous posts on mascara, well I’m addicted to the stuff. I’m always on a hunt for a new mascara that claims to give me longer lashes with more volume, basically I’m a sucker for the stuff. So when this Rimmel London Day 2 Night mascara turned up on my door step the other day I was over the moon! I’d won a competition on the Rimmel London website which I had entered months ago and completely forgot about, to win a full sized sample of their latest mascara. As I’d done this months ago I’d completely forgotten all about it! I’ve actually wanted to try out this mascara for so long as the idea of two different looks in a mascara has intrigued me for quite some time.
Rimmel describes it as ‘A multi-tasking, 2 in 1 defined length/intense volume mascara. Top Cap: Exceptionally defined and ultra-lengthened lashes. Bottom Cap: Thickens lashes with voluptuous, oversized volume. No Clumps’.
The basic idea behind this mascara is that you can wear the top cap ‘length’ for a basic day look with long lashes, and then add the bottom cap ‘volume’ to create a much more intense night time look. This mascara has made me curious for months on how one mascara can change the look of its mascara wand to achieve two different looks.

First of all I love the length part of this mascara, it made my lashes super long! But silly me forgot to take a picture of my lashes normally to show you before I applied it. I’m not so keen on the volume part of the mascara on its own, I don’t feel like it did much to my lashes at all on its own. However when I tried the volume part on top of the length application, it gave my lashes a large boost of volume. So in my opinion if you want length and volume in your lashes then apply the volume to your lashes after you’ve done the length. I believe this mascara is around the £7.99 mark from Boots, and for a ‘drugstore’ mascara I think its very reasonably priced. As this was sent to me I didn’t purchase this myself, but when I run out (which will probably be soon – I use a lot of this!), I will definitely be repurchasing this!
