I needed a new mascara recently so I decided I'd go for something new that I'd never tried before, and since I'm loving Rimmel at the moment I thought I'd go for their latest mascara release the Retro Glam Mascara from Rimmels Scandleyes range. I must admit I was umming and arhing about buying a mascara from the Scandleyes range as I never really hear too much about them, but the Retro Glam brush/wand looked good and it was completely affordable at just £6.99 so I went for it. The Retro Glam Mascara claims to give you thicker, fuller lashes for that wide-eyed false lash effect with no clumps, which is exactly what I look for in a mascara.
Firstly I just want to dive straight in a say I love this mascara, its a new found favourite of mine right now ha ha. The mascara wand has a bristle brush applicator which are my favourite,it has an interesting hour glass shape which I've found to be great for really plumping up my lashes and fanning them out. The application process was quick and easy, I found two slick coats of the mascara was enough to give me the length and volume that I desired and I experienced no clumping what so ever, also because the brush is a bristle brush you can really wriggle at the root of the lashes to build up length and volume without scratching or poking your eyeball like I always do with plastic applicators. As for Retro Glams staying power... I was really impressed, there was no smudging, running or flaking throughout the day with the two coats I applied so no grumbles there.
Overall I'm really impressed with Rimmels Retro Glam offering, my lashes appeared longer, thicker and fuller, I wouldn't say it completely fanned my lashes out but then again I only have short eye lashes but someone with naturally longer eyelashes my really feel the benefits of the mascara's fanning capability. I think the price is really reasonable and the staying power was really impressive.
Have you tried Rimmels Retro Glam Mascara??? As always I'd love to know your thoughts.
