Hello lovelies! I hope you're having a great week! I've had a bit of a busy one, both at work, and with testing out beauty products! Along with four Oh My Gloss! lip glosses (see full review here), I was recently sent a tube of the Rimmel Scandaleyes Xxtreme mascara in Extreme Black and I've been loving it!
The first brand of mascara to make any difference to my straight, middle of the road length/density lashes, was Rimmel, and since then I've been quite fond of their mascaras. While they haven't all worked for me, I'm happy to report that this particular one has been excellent!
I use the side with the long bristles to comb it through the lashes, so that I can get it all the way through the entire length of hair, and the short side to get the mascara on all the lashes. I don't really know how much that helps, but I think it seems to a little. Certainly, the long bristles seem to comb the mascara through the lashes quite well.
While I don't think it holds the curl any better than other mascaras I've tried, I do think that it seems to help with the illusion of length and density, which I'm quite happy about. I also like that while it's not a waterproof mascara, this doesn't end up giving me crazy panda eyes by the end of the day, nor does it flake everywhere - definitely winning!
