Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara

At Christmas time I took part in a secret Santa swap hosted by Tea Party Beauty and got a lovely box of gifts. Included was this Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam mascara which I'd never considered picking up but I am glad Santa decided to pop it in my box!






£6.99 - Boots

I haven't really tried a lot of mascaras in the past but recently I've found that thinner flexi plastic brushes were what I liked so when I received this I can't say I was that excited to use it. However one day I decided to try it out and I was actually really impressed with it.

Now the pictures I don't think do it justice as my eyelashes are quite small but the curved 'fluffy' brush coats my lashes well whilst also keeping them separate. The brush helps you cling to your lashes (not in a bad way) as you pull it through them ensuring you get good coverage but also helping them keep shape. Too much of this mascara and you could be in danger of clumping but I think the same can be said of a lot of others. I think I like this mascara so much because it can get right to the smaller lashes because of the shape of the brush. I do find that if I put this on my lower lashes there is a bit of smudging after a few hours but I think that is normal and I just wipe it away.

I really do rate this mascara and will probably pick up another one when its gone!

Have your tried this? What are your thoughts?


  1. I'm totally amazed by that brush. (It's the little things isn't it?) And I think your lashes look brilliant! Not clumpy at all, and they look healthy. If healthy is the right word for lashes.. haha.

  2. I really just reviewed this mascara as well. At first I wasn't sure about it but now I like it. It creates a wide eyed look which I love and goes well with winged eyeliner!

  3. I agree completely. love this mascara! x

  4. Wow this mascara makes your lashes look amazing! Very dramatic, but in a totally natural way. That makes no sense at all, so I'll just change it to: AMAZING! Not sure if I want to stray from my Max Factor Masterpiece Max, but I might just give this a go.
