Rimmel ScandalEyes Retro Glam Mascara [Review]
I received ScandalEyes Mascara (Extreme Black 003) by Rimmel London from Influenster as a gift for blogging about the JollyVoxBox. I will start by saying I was thrilled to read that I was getting another product. Upon first seeing this product I wasn’t to thrilled on the background design. The design of the colors with a bull eyes effect. I just think it looks a bit too busy. However its very easy to open.
I received this product as a complimentary gift. I found that the price varies depending on where you shopping. The price ranged from $3.50 to as high as $12.00. I would pay $3-4 but not $12 for this product.
This product is
- Made by Rimmel London in England
- For a bold look to your eyelashes by adding volume to your lashes. (with only one – two applications)
- Available in only two shades of Black & Extreme Black 003
- Not waterproof (there is a waterproof version of this mascara)
- Has a thick & wet texture
- 0.9 x 4.9 x 0.9 inches
- States that it is “suitable for sensitive eyes.”
After opening the mascara tube, I noticed that there is a lot of thick mascara on the applicator tip itself. One should be careful applying this mascara. Applying too much at one time could result in clumping, matting and just a messy look. Apply a light coating at first continue with second & third coat to get the full effect.
There is a noticeable difference in the eyelashes after using ScandalEyes Mascara. My eyelashes were darker, thicker looking. Since the applicator brush is hour-glass shaped with a round edge it may difficult to reach the inner eyelashes. The middle and end lashes benefit the most for this product.
My Personal Experience: I didn’t like this product at first because it seemed so thick & wet that it went on too thick. I had to scale back on how much I was applying. The tube is a bit chunky, about 5 inches in length. The one thing that I truly loved about this product is that I can take a nap wearing it and do not have to worry about waking up with raccoon eyes. There is minimal flaking, no smearing. Just a little touch up and I was good to go again. It did make my eyelashes seem to be thicker & fuller. The effect longs a few hours, touch up will be needed. It is messy to wash off, the longer I wore it the more flaking I did notice. It will leave a nice black rub mark on your finger if you rub your eye. I wouldn’t have purchased this to start, however, I might consider purchasing it now after I have had the opportunity to use it. It’s just that it’s still a bit pricey for me.
