Rimmel London Scandaleyes Reloaded Mascara*

Rimmel products have long been a favourite of mine, right from when I first began to take an interest in makeup while navigating my early teenage years. From foundations, to blushers, to eyeshadows and lip products they had just about everything, at a great price for great quality. The topic of today’s post though is mascara which, like many other women out there, is my absolute staple.

I want a lot from a mascara. My natural lashes are pale, long and straight. I’m fussy with brushes, because I want one that will enable each of my lashes to be coated evenly. I want to be able to apply it in the morning and I don’t want it to budge until I’m reaching for the makeup remover at bedtime.

I feel like Rimmel, my much relied upon beauty brand, have completely understood all of my desires without me even needing to utter them, with the relaunch of their already popular Scandaleyes Mascara.

Evidently designed with the busy working woman in mind, Scandaleyes Reloaded has been engineered to deliver up to 11 times more lash volume, last throughout day with no smudging and then be easily removed with warm water when required.

The mascara has quite a big brush, slightly tapered towards the end. This is not something I usually favour, however, means that this combined with the patent-pending formula leaves lashes clump free yet bold.

I’ve been alternating between the two mascaras for the last couple of weeks; the extreme black version is perfect if you want a slightly more dramatic look for an evening out, for example. I like the look these mascaras create, darkening my lashes giving them really intense volume. The shape of the brush makes it really easy to get the same effect with my lower lashes too, as I can use the thinner end and ensure the smaller ones in the corner of my eye are captured.

I’ve been pairing my new mascaras with the Thick and Thin and Micro Scandaleyes Liners. The Micro Liner is definitely my favourite, because the thin tip allows me to draw a really precise line which is close to my lashes and really perfect that feline flick at the end!

You can see how I’ve used it, with the mascaras, in this everyday look below.

You can buy the Scandaleyes Reloaded mascara from Boots and Superdrug for £6.99. The 
Scandaleyes Liners retail at £5.49.
