I don't enjoy writing negative reviews but I feel so conned by the advert for Rimmel's Scandal Eyes Retro Glam Mascara that I have no choice.
Rimmel states that this mascara: has a 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!
Wrong. Unfortunately I found that this mascara left me with a lot of clumps, this is because I had to really coat it on to get any sort of eyelash transformation. Even after 3 coats I couldn't see any change in the length or thickness of my eyelashes. They just looked slightly blacker and a hell of a lot heavier. Then came the clumps. There was no false eyelash effect, just clumpy thick lashes that felt heavy and made me feel ever so slightly dizzy. Another thing that I found with this mascara is that the product dried too quickly on my lashes and would shed during the day. I'm not one to mess with my mascara but I found myself having to pull it off at work because it was annoying me so much. This dry formula felt horrible on my eyes and left a mess all over my face by the end of the day.
I've seen so many great reviews for this mascara but I really don't understand why. I've never hated a mascara so much in my life. Safe to say, it's now in the bin. I'm disappointed to say the least and expected more from Rimmel, but after all I guess this is a relatively cheap mascara.
