First off let me just say I payed £1.80 for this mascara do you realise that is cheaper than some loaves of bread, bargain is the only word to describe this little find. Rimmel did a flash sale on ASOS last week for the Scandal Eyes Rockin Curves Extreme Black Mascara and at this price I just wasn't going to contemplate not buying it. It was pretty much free don't you think. I used to be a huge fan of Rimmel's mascara but after trying Soap & Glorys Thick and Fast I have been dubious to steer away from my new favourite brand.
I purchased this mascara in extreme black as to be honest my eyelashes need all the help they can get to become visible. The packaging fits the "Rockin" name well, with the croc leather print and graffiti inspired writing its nothing short of edgy. The brush is curved which is meant to look like a broken heart. It works well to lift my lashes and give them the shape they lack. I've been testing it now for a few days and I'm currently quite blown away with it. It builds quickly and makes my lashes blacker than black itself. My only small issue which to be honest probably isn't even worth mentioning but If like me you need a few coats to lengthen lashes you have to apply quickly or otherwise lashes will stick and become gloopy. This minor problem is also a benefit as it shows how quickly the mascara dry's making those rushed days even easier. The weather has been really humid in the Uk for the last week and usually I end up with mascara melting down my face and thankfully for my ego this little beauty has stayed put. Go Rimmel. If you would like to give it a go you can pick it up from boots in either Extreme Black or Just Black for £6.99.
