Rimmel Scandal eyes Mascara

Rimmel London Scanal Eyes Mascara rrp £6.99
available at Boots and Superdrug

I picked this up as part of Superdrug's 3 for 2 offer on all cosmetics, I don't usually buy make up from any of the brands sold in chemists, however I have yet to find a higher end mascara worth the extra pennies so for now its one product I don't mind being cheap and cheerful.
I didn't need a mascara at the time but for some reason the bright, tacky packaging lured me in! The brush is a traditional mascara wand (no plastic bristles thanks!) and is super large, for super large lashes? we'd hope. 
Rimmels says its a breakthrough mascara! (whatever that is) It is suppose to give you serious volume without clumping basically, hurrah! 
I wasn't expecting much from this mascara to be honest and I really hate it when products make ridiculous claims, but the more I use this, the more I like it.  
I wouldn't call this a "breakthrough" in mascara,  but it does give some decent volume whilst avoiding clumps, especially when compared to my oldest fav, Boujoirs volume clubbin'.  Its a good everyday mascara for those who like volume and definition and for the price you can't really grumble. 
The best quality of this mascara I think, is the way it really opens up your eyes, I don't think I've ever looked so awake! and for this, despite your wild claims and ridiculous packaging, I really like you Rimmel Scandal eyes.

p.s for extra lol'z go watch the t.v advert for this, ridiculous!


  1. Oh wow it really does look like a decent mascara, I'm pretty impressed!x

  2. It really is pretty good, It took a little while to get used to using it, but after a few days of getting the hang of it I love it! x

  3. haha I love the advert for this! and it looks amazing!! I keep seeing this around but didn't think it would be too amazing!!



  4. The packaging put me off this but it actually looks pretty good! Don't like massive brushes on mascaras though, with my short eyelashes it makes quite a mess on the lid haha i love makeup adverts, my favourite at the moment is the Loreal True Match foundation advert with Beyonce, if you haven't seen it Youtube it, it's massively cringe haha


  5. I love Rimmel's mascaras, I think the last one I bought was day 2 nite. I know what you mean about spending more money for mascara, I prefer high end brands for foundation, but I never notice the difference with mascara. This rimmel one looks great.



  6. wow! thats amazing!! i use Daniel Sandler mascara at the moment just because i got it in my glossybox but i usually rimmel and I will definitely be trying this!!


  7. It looks pretty good!
    I use a mascara from kiko and its cheap too but is really good :)


  8. I'm really tempted to go and get this.. your eyelashes look amazingly long! plus, I'm oretty sure my mascara's away to run out so maybe this is a sign.. xx


  9. This mascara makes your eyes and eyelashes look amazing!



  10. you are beautiful and the mascara only helps show off those eyes!! xoxo http://trendsneversleep.blogspot.com/

  11. I saw this on the adverts but I wasn't sure whether it'd be good or not. it looks like it works really well! you have really nice eyes too xx

  12. Your eyelashes look amazing, I am so tempted to purchase this now xx
