[REVIEW] Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara

Helloo ~~ Today I'm reviewing a mascara for you ^^ It's Scandaleyes Retro Glam by Rimmel. I got this one from LivBox in December and I've been using it every now and then. Let's get started shall we?

 DESCRIPTION 

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! -- Taken from Rimmel London

There are 3 color options available: Black, Extreme Black and Carbon Black. Mine is just Black :)

 PACKAGING 

The packaging is a bit bulky, boring looking black and white tube. It has some retro vibe to it but I think the packaging is pretty ugly to be honest. But it's fine as no one will see it from my makeup bag :D It has all the needed information and it can be used 12 months after opening. Plus from that one ! The way the cap is "curved" makes it easier to hold it on my hand :) I find the brush to be too big and inconveniently shaped for my eyes. I always end up getting it on my skin, especially when doing under eyelashes. I prefer mascaras with a curled wand :)




 I really like this little crown detail ! The best part of the mascara packaging !


The brush looks bigger in real life !

 WHERE TO BUY 

Everywhere? I'm pretty sure this can be found in everywhere LOL ! In Finland I can find it from grocery store or supermarket as well. I don't know about the price but I guess it's somewhere between 8-12 $ ?

 WHEN WORN 

Below are the step by step results of this mascara as usual ~ Taken in daylight with my phone camera :) In real life the results aren't that visible as they shows up in the photo. I think it gives a nice, natural looking finish. I should have combed my lashes before taking the photo... It looks like it doesn't hold the curls that well or then I have stubborn lashes. Btw this isn't waterproof mascara.


 SUMMARY 

+ Easy to remove
+ Gives a nice looking natural result
+ Can be found anywhere?
+ Affordable
+ Good to use after 12 months of opening :)

- Boring looking packaging
- I find the brush too big for my eyes
- Doesn't hold curl that well (or I have stubborn lashes)
- Isn't waterproof (which makes it easy to remove...)

 RATING: 3/5  Would I repurchase this product? I don't think so. I like to stick with waterproof, curled wand mascaras. But I will use this one. I think it's really good for those who wants a nice, affordable, easy to remove mascara. For those who shares same thoughts with me I would recommend some other mascara :D

That's all for now ~ I'll try publish another post on Saturday but I won't make promises ;) Have you tried this mascara? Comment below and let me know :) Tomorrow is Friday, yaay ^^ Any plans for the upcoming weekend?
