As you can see from the title of this post its all about the Rimmel Scandaleyes Collection. I have four products to talk about and each one have impressed me. To me Rimmel is a brand that i have alot of love for and its another post that i have to gush about some of the products. I find that Rimmel are really pulling out great quality products at the moment and many of them are raved favourites. So when i was lucky enough to win some products i was so excited*. The latest collection to hit the streets has a 60s feel to the products.
First two products are mascaras - The Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara provides your lashes looking thick and volumed. The brush itself is rather large with fibre bristles added. This type of brush really applies the product easily and better to the lashes. Even though oversized brushes can be quite tricky to coat every single lash i found that this wasnt the case with this one as it has a figure of eight type of shape which ensures that all the lashes even the tiny ones get a coating whilst building length and volume each time. A couple of coats of this and my lashes looked amazing. Im really impressed with this mascara and didnt leave me disappointed in the slightest.
The Rimmel Scandaleyes Flex Mascara is an oversize mascara that has lycra for soft and flexible lashes. With this added formula it provides the lashes to look fuller and voluminous.The formula isnt overly gloopy or stiff to work with and takes a minute to properly dry to then be able to coat the lashes a second time round. As the wand is rather big make sure to not overcoat the wand with product as it can get easily messy. What i really like about this mascara is the lengthening effect is has to my lashes and it holds the curl effortlessly. I didnt experience smudging which is a bonus. The only part that is tricky is getting enough product and not over doing it as it seems with this mascara you can get too much.
The next product that i was really excited to try and heard fab things about are the Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Paints. The Shade i got was '01 Mercury Silver'. The eyeshadow has a liquid texture and comes with a sponge as an easy application. The formula is creamy and so blendable too but dries almost instantly making you have to work very fast for your desired look. The staying power is phenomenal and they dont budge or smudge in any way. Even though this colour is not something i would wear on a daily basis i think that this added with other colours it could work to be more subtle or even as a dramatic look. I find the colour selection for these arent as wearable for me personally but i really do like this colour for when i am feeling more daring with eye looks.
The last product is the Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick and Thin Eyeliner in 'black'. The eyeliner is a felt tip pen feel with a 3d tip so you can choose between having a thick or a thin liner and i think its ideal to be able to get right in the corners of your eye with the thiner point and then using the thicker point if wanting a more cat eye look. This is a waterproof formula and i find that it doesnt budge at all throughout the day and the black is really pigmented so it really stands out too. I really do like this as an added alternative to my other eyeliners and its great to try out different ones. Will continue to use this for awhile and especially in the day for a more suble liner on the eyes.
Have you got any of the scandaleyes products?
