Rimmel London Scandaleyes Extreme Black Mascara Review

Guest post By Tejinder Kaur
Rimmel London Scandaleyes Extreme Black Mascara
I will review Rimmel London Scandaleyes Mascara today. A little detail on Mascara in general before starting of review: Mascara as a cosmetic is used to enhance eyes; it may darken, thicken, lengthen and define the eyelashes. Applying two coats of mascara will give enough definition to lashes to really make a difference. To apply mascara always allows the first coat to dry before applying the second to prevent clumping. I think u have had enough of my blah blah blah on mascara, so back to the review!
PRICE: £6.99/12ml or 465 INR
AVAILABILITY:  Boots and Superdrug/ Slassy.com In India

My thoughts:I bought this mascara 2 months ago just because I wanted to try one from my favourite brand. It’s pretty decent and not bad at all in terms of staying power, pigmentation and formula. I have thin lashes so always prefer big brush mascaras to define my eyes and give thick volume to the lashes. The lashes play a very important role as it adds more drama to the eyes .Does it give Scandal eyes? Keep reading to find out...

It comes in a chubby orange and black packaging which looks very classy, elegant and noticeable in my makeup bag. The brand name engraved with orange colour on lower part of the body. A white sticker pasted on the orange lid shows the colour name. The wand is pretty dense and have twist end cap of orange colour. 
The brush is big enough which works nicely on upper lashes and will lifts your lashes more to enhance your eyes. But does not work very well on lower lashes as catches the skin very easily .The good thing about brush is that it picks up the good amount of mascara and can be applied on both the eyes without reinserting again. The best thing is its waterproof and lasts whole day on my lashes. The formula I feel is bit thick but does not feel heavy at all on eyes. 

The shade is jet black which gives more definition to your eyes if you add more coats. It does have soft bristles which work perfectly and helps in separating the lashes and give decent volume to my thin lashes. It dries very quickly and does clump as well which is a negative for this mascara. It does not smudge or flake .On a plus side it is very easy to remove with a cotton pad and any wet remover wipes. I am quite happy with staying power and pigmentation. One coat gives nice volume but I always apply two or three coats to give more strength n thickness to eyes lashes.

It does give volume to my lashes but when I need more dramatic eyes I always add my W7 Lashtastic False liquid Lashes Mascara, which I will review soon. By adding this it gives full volume, even coverage and lashes you have always dreamt of.


Pros of Rimmel London Scandaleyes Mascara:
A thick dense wand
Jet black waterproof mascara
Provide length, thickness and volume to thin lashes like mine
Formula is very light
Easily removable
Does not flake, smudge or chip
Classy packaging
Even application
Lashes look natural and do not feel stiff
Will give the decent volume to thick lashes
Defines and separate the eye lashes

Cons of Rimmel London Scandaleyes Mascara:
It does clump (can be fixed using lash comb)
A bit expensive.
A big Brush can create a little mess on lower lash line, need greater care while applying.

My eye makeup look-

Rating- 3.5 out of 5 

Final Verdict: I know lots of people do not like the mega brushes which can be a little daunting at first and can create a mess particularly with the lower lashes. The formula isn't thick for me and does not feel heavy on eyes. Fragrance is pleasant as well. It extends my lashes and gives a decent volume. Does clump but can be fixed with lash comb. It is an amazing product in terms of staying power, pigmentation .After drying the lashes look natural and do not feel stiff...so do give a try!!!

  1. You Are Right.. The Lashes Don't Look Too Stiff!

    Btw, Don't You Think That You Should Opt For Softer Eye Looks or Don't Go So Above Your Crease Area? I Think That Only Adds To Your Long Face Shape na.. Don't You Think So?

    I Hope You Didn't Mind :)

    1. Of Course It's Her Own Choice But I Just Said That in Relation With Her Face Shape.. I'm Extremely Sorry If That Hurt!

    2. I agree Heena! It doesn't make lashes stiff!
      Softer colors look great but I think it's one's personal choice and Bright colors suit her and the way she dresses there in UK. :)

  19. One of the few make up products I use is mascara. To prevent the clumping, usually apply an under-base coat, like body shops's clear mascara and I have also tried other brands as well.

    Rimmel used to be popular brand over but slowly the brand disappeared from the market. I try to go for Maybelline and on the higher end of Shu Uemura. That eye make up of yours looks spectacular. Will try out when I have functions to attend.
