Review: Rimmel Scandeleyes Mascara

 Scandaleyes Mascara by Rimmel. Available at all Rimmel outlets for 46 dirhams.

Scandaleyes is the latest mascara offering by Rimmel. According to Rimmel, this mascara has "3x the collagen for plump, sculpted lashes" and "3x the keratin for strong, healthy, gorgeous lashes". It also has a giant brush, that is 50% larger and denser than their previous mascara brushes.

I really like the brush on this mascara. It's got actual bristles, which is a nice change from all of the rubber brushes that are around right now. The big brush means it's easier to coat all of your lashes in one go, but you have to be careful because you might get some mascara on your eyelids (just keep some qtips handy in case that happens :) )

So, what did I think of the mascara?

The actual formula didn't impress me very much. I loved that it has a glossy finish. It was nice to see pretty, shiny lashes. The mascara does live up to claims that it doesn't clump, but I just didn't get the volume that I was expecting.

  Kindly excuse the tired eyes! (I'm wearing several coats of Scandaleyes on the right)

Scandaleyes gave my lashes a nice, little curl and defined them, but that's about all. I think this would be a good bet if you're looking for a more natural look for work, rather than night-time drama. I think that the price is great if you are looking for a decent, every day mascara, but this probably won't be a game-changer.

Have any of you tried this mascara? Do you have any other Rimmel mascaras that you would recommend?

  1. aww no - it looks so promising!
    I've got rimmel lash accelerator mascara and it gives amazing length but once again not much volume. I love it for everyday wear but on a night out I have to switch to Avon Supershock.

  8. Well I am Chinese and have scarce eyelashes too, but I apply mascara and make every tiny lash count . I use a curler wich is slightly warmed up, use a visiting card to sheild eyelid from mascara during application, no eyeliner viola I have bigger lookin eyes and longer looking eyelashes. I also care alot for my scanty lash by removing all makeup traces and applying vaseline to them b4 I sleep
