Review: Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara

I don't always wear makeup, and for an every day look, its usually a little mascara, some color on the cheeks, and lipgloss. That's it. Obviously, I do wear more than that when going out, or special occasions, etc. And I do own a ton of makeup. I thought I found my favorite mascara, but then Influenster sent me Rimmel London's Scandaleyes Retro Glam mascara. They claim that it gives you bold, wide-eyed false lash look. I'm thinking, yea right. That false lash look is from false lashes you use in the commercials (pet peeve of mine right there).

But I figured, might as well try it. I don't think I've ever actually tried a mascara from Rimmel London. This is the look I created. Yes, I am using other non-Rimmel products, but lets not name them in this post (but I'll be glad to tell ya if you send me a message or tweet me). The pic below is an Instagram pic, and I used a filter because the lighting wasn't all that great in my apartment at that time.

Shocker. It actually looks good. It doesn't seem over done, it looks great, and I actually like it. You can see the lashes, and you can see my eyes appear wide, I look awake (even though I was dog tired). I feel like this mascara can be great for dramatic, and subtle/natural looks.

So guess now I have a new mascara to add to my favorites. It lasted all day, and was easy to wash off. I didn't look like a racoon after trying to take off the mascara, so that is a big plus.

What's your favorite mascara? Would you give Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara a try?

*Note: I received this mascara as part of my Rose VoxBox from Influenster. While the sample was given to me, the opinions stated are my own.
