RIMMEL London: Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara

My, do I adore the site as it allows you to virtually try on many of their products!?! You can either use a model's face or your own and use the "Try It On" feature. That reminds me of my OPI Nail app as I get to see the colors available and how they'd look on my nails before even wearing them!

It was the "mod" packaging that first caught my eye while walking the beauty aisles in my local CVS Pharmacy. I liked it's packaging and most of all liked that it claimed to give you bold, wide eyes without clumps! A friend and avid follower had asked about several mascaras I had tried yet some had left her with clumpy lashes- so Maribel- this one's for you- literally, I hope?!

Rimmel London retro glam mascara ($ 6.99) has a full thick hourglass shaped brush that delivers a bold look after just one swipe from root to tip. It gave me the look of false lashes and it ophthalmologist tested. I did notice a few of my lashes sticking together yet after I used to tip of the wand to separate them, they indeed stayed separated. The colors available are Extreme Black and Black Noir (sampled and pictured).



Available at Target, CVS Pharmacy, Target, Rite Aid, Kmart,  Walmart, , Meijer and other retailers nationwide.

What are some of your favorite drugstore brand mascaras? I am already a fan of L'Oreal, Covergirl, Revlon, Maybelline, FLOWER, Eddie Funkhouser, etc. and am open to hearing of others! xo


  1. I am such a fan of Rimmel's Scandaleyes! I've only been using the original though, I think I must try the retro glam one now!;) Thanks for the review Doll!��

  2. Hello sweetheart! This one is fun looking via it's packaging and certainly adds length and volume to your lashes. Let me know once you have tried it! XO

  3. Love Maybelline, Revlon and L'Oreal mascaras but I haven't been a fan of rimmel but wow just look at that brush! I'm going to have to pick it up and try it! Thanks Nicole
