Not Loving Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara

I love mascara – out of everything in my makeup collection mascara is the one thing I refuse to go without.  I can even skip a shower or two!

I have said before and will say again, I am fortunate to have naturally long and thick lashes so will really try any mascara out there – usually I grab the ones on sale.

I picked up Rimmel’s Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara to give a try – and I have to say I am really disappointed with it.

IMG_0194-1According to Rimmel:

  • Wide-eyed false lash look!
  • Bold, wide-eyed false lash look.
  • Hour-glass brush shaped to the lash line to plump lashes, fanning them up and out for bold, wide-eyed volume
  • Coats lashes individually for a big, false lash look in one simple stroke. No clumps!

According to me:

  • No clumps is not very true – I ended up with a lot
  • The hour-glass brush was good to plump lashes but did not fan them out.  I actually found it got them sticking together
  • Started drying out really really fast
  • The brush shape is awkward so I kept hitting my lash lid when trying to get to the very tips of my lashes

As a rule I like Rimmel products so I am surprised at how much I really don’t like Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara.  Maybe it’s just me, but in my humble opinion this product is a total pass.  There are better mascara’s on the market for the same price point.
