Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara

Go the Extra Mod! Bold, Wide-Eyed false lash look!
• Bold, wide-eyed false lash look.
• Exclusive hour-glass brush shaped to the lash line to plump lashes, fanning them up and out for bold, wide-eyed volume.
• Volume stretched to the extreme. No clumps!

You know, for all their bold claims, I can barely see the model’s lashes in the promo ad. Kinda’ makes it seem less twiggy-esque, just sayin’. Overall though, I like the theme (retro) because the packaging looks fun!

Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara is an extension of Rimmel Scandaleyes Mascara (orange tube). I didn’t like the original but I actually enjoyed this version. Sorry the packaging looks so gnarly but Boots are fond of using tape as a seal (hey, whatever works).

I’ve said this before but when it comes to mascara, more is more. The huge, hourglass-shaped brush on this gave me some awesome volume! It curled my lashes too (without me having to use an eyelash curler beforehand). It even added length to my sad little lashes. The hourglass-shaped brush just fanned them out beautifully. Also, it didn’t smudge nor flake of throughout the day. I will say two things though. First, there’s a bit of a learning curve when it comes to using this mascara. You’re gonna need to experiment with this mascara for like a minute. Second, I cannot use this on my lower lashes. It just gets everywhere. Maybe it’s because my eyes are on the small to average size whereas if you had bigger/wider eyes, this might work. That said, I don’t mind using a different mascara on my lower lashes.

Honestly, I mostly bought this because the hourglass-shaped brush looks like it could be a dupe for the brush on Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (which I have never tried). I never purchased the Too Faced one because I was becoming more and more skeptical when it came to mascara. I mean, I’ve shelled out a lot of money over the years for duds. I figured the Rimmel mascara would be a cost-effective way to try out the hourglass-shaped brush that the Too Faced mascara has and honestly after enjoying the Rimmel mascara so much, I don’t think I’ll ever purchase the Too Faced one. I purchased Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara at Boots for about KD 4/500.
