Today, I'm reviewing a mascara I bought quite recently, and that I've heard a great deal about, the Rimmel ScandalEyes Mascara. This mascara comes in a neon orange tube, with a very fat brush (when I say very fat, i mean it!). This is what Rimmel Claims:
"One Stroke Volume Revealing Mascara. A brush this big, volume so fast, this is simply scandalous! Introducing ScandalEyes, our first big brush mascara that quickly reveals even shy, unnoticeable lashes in one simple stroke!Our MaxDensity™ brush is 50% larger, covering the whole lash line to capture each and every lash. Supersize formula! Triple collagen + keratin formula plumps even the thinnest lashes. Lash Out Loud! 12x more volume and scandalous eye opening impact! No clumps. Lashes so big, volume so fast! Volume so loud your lashes will scream!"
And yes, the brush is GINORMOUS in comparison to mascara wands I normally use. To be honest, I was a little bit frighten the first time I opened it and saw that huge black monster that I supposivley should wriggle on my lashes (I do exaggerate just a tiny bit, but I'm definetely NOT used to brushes of THAT calibre. omfg...) But finally I found the curage to put that fat bastard near my eyes, and I was actually quite surprised.

Though, one major downside to this mascara is that it flakes a little bit as the day goes on. And it is a little bit annoying, since it delivers such an amazing result. And it runs quite easily, so if you have a runny eye, or if it waters a little bit, it smudges. It is not a waterproof mascara, but I would have expected a little more hold.
I have listed som pros and cons with this mascara.
☆Gives great volume
☆Can be used day and night
☆Easy to apply
☆You get 12ml!! (High end mascaras is about 6-7ml...)
☆Medium formula (not too thin, eigher too thick)
✗Requires more layers for a very voluminous look (time consuming)
✗Not cruelty free

Overall I do like this mascara and the effect it gives. The flaking and smudging can be minimized with a waterproof mascara on top, but I don't have one at the moment. It doesn't bother me much though, it stays pretty much put during an 8 hour shift at work anyway. It might be my new favorite mascara for volume :)
This retails for £6,99 at Feelunique (I bought it for about £8,90 in Norway, the contry where everything is overpriced!...)
What is your favorite mascara at the moment?
