So here’s me, in the local chemist, before work and I see a basket saying ‘SALE’. So obviously I rush over to said basket! It was filled with Rimmel products. This includes nail polishes, lip glosses and mascaras. So, because I haven’t previously tried many rimmel products, I couldn’t help but pick a few things up. I picked up 2 glosses and 2 mascaras – I’ll tell you about the lipglosses in another post. So, What did I pick up?
I picked up the Retro Glam mascara for like £3 – It is usually priced at £6.99.
Rimmel describes this product as…
A wide-eyed false lash look
Fanned out volume. No clumps
Lashes Up, out and over the top
There is no denying that this ‘widens’ your eyes. It definitely leaves a curl in your lashes whilst adding quite some length to them too. But, this is pretty clumpy when applying, but like any other mascara, this is easy to fix – just wiggle your brush on your lashes to get rid of the clumps. So let’s talk about the product itself!
The applicator is a normal wand with a pinch in the middle. This does help add a good curl in your lashes. I much prefer the formula of this mascara in comparison to the scandaleyes lycra flex. Here is how this mascara looks:
Next up is the Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Lycra Flex mascara. Honestly, I don’t like this. The product itself is too wet and takes forever to dry and just makes you look like a killer panda! That’s basically the only reason why I don’t like it. But, if the product itself isn’t good, then that kinda ruins the whole thing. The applicator is actually ok, so it’s a shame that the liquidy part is so crap. I got this for £3 and it is usually £6.99.
So, here are some pictures:
Normal styled applicator in an annoyingly big tube.
Yes my lashes look long, but the liquid is crap, so farewell scandaleyes.
So, what do you think of the rimmel mascaras? In the past I owned 2 different ones and really liked 1 and was so-so on the other. So pretty much I am 50/50 on this brand’s mascaras.
Hope you enjoyed reading! 🙂
