I can be extremely picky when it comes to mascara and eyeliner, it absolutely cannot budge or smudge, which is why for so long i’ve been 100% loyal to the amazing No7 Stay Perfect Mascara. So when I got given the chance to test out Rimmel’s new Scandaleyes Reloaded range I figured it was time to put down the golden tube that I reach for every day and try something new for once.
I got to try 2 different types of the Scandaleyes mascara, Scandaleyes Reloaded and Scandaleyes Reloaded in jet black. In addition to this I had a play with the Scandaleyes liners, in thick and thin and micro.
So lets break it down, what’s so good about this new range, and how did I find it?
What Are The Best Features of the new Scandaleyes Range?
The mascaras are said to give you extreme clump free volume, with up to 24 hours of “lash impact” you needn’t worry about smudging when getting sweaty at the gym or running to work.
Is The Mascara Easy To Remove?
Although I love my Stay Perfect Mascara it can be a bugger to remove as it ‘tubes’ the lashes, resulting in loads of tiny black clumps everywhere when I use my cleanse and polish to take it off. I’m happy to report though that this mascara is very easy to remove and came off easily both with warm water and when using my cleanse and polish cream.
What’s The Mascara Brush Like?
It’s fairly thick, which makes for easy and quick application. Rimmel say it’s smaller in size and more tapered than the original Scandaleyes brush.
How About The Eyeliners, Do They Measure Up?
I found the eyeliners really easy to use, the thick and thin version has a slanted tip which means you can choose between drawing a thick or thin line. The micro eyeliner allows for very precise application which is exactly what I like. Given my super oily eyelids both liners lived up to expectation and didn’t smudge throughout the days that I wore them.
Overall I think this new range is a great extension to the Rimmel line, the packaging isn’t super luxe, but for the price point you really can’t complain for products that give you long lasting wear and a smudge proof look.
The Scandaleyes Reloaded Mascaras are £6.99 and the liners are priced at £5.49 making them an affordable addition to your make up bag.
