Rimmel ScandalEyes Mascara
Advantages: waterproof, looks ok
Disadvantages: not as good as other mascaras I have used
I love trying out new makeup products and a while ago I decided to try the Rimmel ScandalEye Show Off mascara because the packaging looked really nice and girly and pink, I wish I would have checked reviews on dooyoo before buying it however as I didn't really fall in love with this mascara.
I have only seen this mascara in black, which is a little bit annoying as I love wearing brown mascara. I bought the black one anyway and decided to wear when I am going out or dressing up for something nice.
This mascara is applied really easily, I use it in the same way that I apply all my mascara. It has a strangely shaped brush that curves in and then flicks at the tip, I find that it drags through my lashes very easily without any clumps or sticky bits.
This mascara does not make my eyelashes look 'scandalous' at all, it also does not give my eyelashes more volume than my previous mascara acheived (which was Maybeline Colossal Lashes).
I wasn't really impressed at all with this mascara, it isn't the worst that I have tried, but it didn't live up to my expectations. It does however makes my eyes look really feminine, bright and nice. I think that this is an OK mascara, but it is not as good as others I have tried.
One good point however is that this mascara goes on very well and also stays on well, it does not run when it rains and is waterproof, also it is smudge proof which is great as I never have to worry about it falling down my face, or having panda eyes.
Price and Availability
You can buy this mascara in Boots for around £7, which is a very reasonable price for a mascara in my opinion, however there are mascaras available that are better than this one for a similar price. A mascara usually does me for around 3-4 months, then I like to replace it so bacteria does not develop inside it. I think that when it comes to the time when I am buying new mascara, I will not bother with this one and will try something new.
I think that this is an OK mascara for every day use, it is waterproof and it looks good when it has been applied, but it isn't as good as other mascaras I have tried. It is well priced but unfortunately it does not come in brown shades and I do think I would buy a different mascara before repurchasing this one. Overall I would give this mascara 3 out of 5 stars.

Summary: an ok mascara, not my favourite though
