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!

  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.
