Rimmel London Scadaleyes Retro Glam Mascara Review

Hi everyone! I have come out of hiding to write a quick review of the new Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam mascara. I got this for free in a recent Influenster VoxBox in exchange for doing some reviews.

This new mascara hit stores last month, November 2013. This mascara is designed to give you clump free lashes for a retro 1960s look.

I forgot to take a picture before I opened it, which is why I have busted up packaging. As you can see from the picture I got this in the color 001 Black. According to their website it comes in two colors, the one I got and Extreme Black. I found the regular black pretty black but if you want darker you have that option.

I have used for about a week and have been liking the mascara so far. With one coat there is a noticeable lengthening of my lashes and it is clump free. The problem comes in when you apply more than one coat. I did find it got a little clumpy, as you will notice with my eye look pictures. I took care of the clumps by brushing through my lashes with a clean spooly brush. Also I found the brush a little too big for my liking. I was getting mascara on my lids when I wasn’t careful about my application. Though I haven’t poked my eye which is a big plus. That is the reason I couldn’t use the Revlon mascaras with those big plastic brushes.

The formula is nice, not too wet and not too dry. Since I have only used it for a week I thinking it will get a little drier. Also my sensitive eyes haven’t had any problems with the formula. I have also found that it lasts all day and doesn’t flake. And it stayed all day with me briefly crying, a local celebrity died and I cry really easily, and putting in eye drops.

So now on to the look. I put about two coats on my lashes. I had a hard time taking pictures the day I wore this look so that is why there are only two awkward eye pictures but you still get the general idea.

Overall I’m really liking this mascara and would buy it again.
