SCANDAL EYES

Hello again. Right here comes my first review for you.

Recently I was in Superdrug and I was looking for a new mascara. Now I had seen this advertised on TV and didn't think much of it but my friend had said she really liked it so I decided to pick up the Rimmel London, volume flash, scandal eyes mascara. (wow, mouthful much?) And partly because it was half price hehe. 






When I got home I gave it a go. I combed through my lashes and curled them with your normal eye lash curler and slowly started applying the mascara to my top and bottom lashes. After probably spending about 10 minutes getting them to how I liked them I was impressed with the way the mascara made my lashes go. It gave them good volume and did open my eyes right up. 

EWW CLOSE UP OF ME PULLING WEIRD FACE, SOZ! YEAH HAIRS A BIT FRIZZY, QUICKLY THREW IT UP THIS MORNING. BUT IT DOES GIVE GOOD VOLUME TO THE LASHES
IT'S A BIT BLURRY, SORRY ABOUT THAT. I ALSO DIDN'T  PUT ANY SHADOW, OR LINER ON BECAUSE I WANTED YOU TO SEE THE MASCARA FULLY.

The problem I found with the mascara was that it easily clumped, but I'm sure it was because of the thickness of the brush. Another thing was that I struggled to have full control of the brush handle because it was quite thick and chunky. One other thing was the time it took to get good, separated lashes. I normally spend about 2-3 minutes doing my mascara and I could be just because I was getting use to the new brush but it did take me a long time.

Apart from these small problems I do like the mascara but I don't think it's Rimmel's best.

Hope you enjoyed my views on this product xoxo

  1. I find the mascara does the very same with me but the effect of fuller lashes makes up for it. Just annoying with the clumps and also the size of the brush makes doing your lower lashes a pain.

  4. It looks great on you! My sister uses this and it works for her too. But for some strange reason it looks REALLY clumpy on my eyelashes!
