Reader Review of the Day: Rimmel Eye Magnifier Eye-Opening Mascara

Have you ever strayed from your usual product because a sale on a similar item caught your attention? That's exactly what happened to Autumns_Elegy, who recently tried out Rimmel Eye Magnifier Eye Opening Mascara ($4) with just OK results. Here's the scoop:

I got this mascara instead of Maybelline Define-A-Lash, as it was a couple of bucks cheaper and I was a bit short of cash at the time. I can't say I'm overly impressed. I don't get the nice long and lifted lashes that the product promised. Half the problem is the dinky little brush. I used an old Maybelline brush to apply the mascara and it came out loads better. It's still not the same lovely effect as Define-A-Lash, but not overly disappointing. This mascara works in a pinch, but I think I'll fork out the extra couple of bucks next time for something a little better.

If you've recently tried a product mainly because it was on sale, let us know what you thought. Was your venture a pleasant surprise, or were you disappointed with the results? Tell us all about it on our Product Reviews section.

This is my absolute favorite mascara!! It makes my lashes look long and leaves zero clumps.

This is a totally believeable review IMO, because I think ALL Rimmel products are garbage; less than satisfactory
