I’m always on the hunt for a new mascara and rarely do I buy the same one twice because although some are good, they don’t wow me.
One thing I will never leave the house without is mascara. If I had to live the rest of my life with only one cosmetic item, mascara would be it. I was born with decent length, semi curled eyelashes and I love to accentuate them.
So far Maybelline The Falsies has been the only mascara that I would consider repurchasing, but I wasn’t satisfied enough to stick with it 100%. So when I spotted Rimmel’s Scandaleyes I realized I had never used a Rimmel Mascara. Now was as good a time as any since I just ran out of The Falsies. I picked one up in the color black (I only really use black mascara, but am easily dazzled and swayed by some of the pink or green colored one for fun)
Rimmel’s Scandaleyes comes in a bright orange fat tube with Rimmel’s signature “crown” imprinted on the top of the cap. When I got home I opened it up and twisted the cap off to check the formula to see if it was runny, gloppy, icky in general – and upon inspection it didn’t look too bad. The brush on it is kind of giant on it though, almost reminds me of a more bristled Lash Blast mascara by Covergirl, and I didn’t care for that brush at all.
So I decided to test this mascara along with some other shadows I got (Like the Ulta eye crayon set I posted about earlier) and the brush was just awkward for me. The formula seemed fine, I really think it was just the fat brush that caused my lashes to join together. It just wasn’t “combing through” the lashes. It isn’t horrible (if I have time to separate lashes), but I wouldn’t purchase another when this tube is empty. Definitely needs an eyelash comb after use!
See? Nothing to really brag about. I am not a morning person and am usually rushing so I can leave the house on time, but this mascara needs to be applied and then I would need to separate the lashes after for a bit to get them less stuck together (which I hate doing). I’m not put off by Rimmel mascara altogether, I just don’t think Scandaleyes Mascara was right for me.
