Review: Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara

I was sent complimentary products in the Rose VoxBox for review purposes from Influenster. If you'd like to test products and join a cool community, you can request an invitation here. Or if you know me in real life, I can send you an invitation.

My favorite item in the Rose VoxBox was the Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam mascara. It was smooth, rich in color, and had a dramatic effect on my lashes. It lengthened them and made them very full. Another huge perk is the price, $5.99. 

My only critisms are that it doesn't curl my lashes and separate as well as my regular mascara (Yes They're Real by Benefit Cosmetics $23.) 

When applying this mascara, I recommend curling your lashes first. After dipping the wand in the container, run the brush along the top of the container to remove any excess product. Apply only two coats, you won't need anymore than that. You risk some major clumping should you attempt that third coat. Hello, 5 extra thick eyelashes. You know what I mean.

Update: When I tried to use the mascara a third time, the mascara was very thick and did not apply smoothly. I tossed it. 

Below are photos of me BEFORE with no mascara and then AFTER with Rimmel mascara. In the last photo, you can see what a big difference it makes to the overall look.
