Scandal Eyes?! Hardly!

Presenting Rimmel Scandal Eyes

Where to find it: Drug Stores
Use: Moustache care -(joking)- Makeup ;)
Ease of use: Medium to poor
Smell: Subtle makeup smell
Packaging: Bright orange, sleek
Price: Around 9$

I picked this up for fun the other day - I figured, why not try a new drugstore mascara - as much as I can rave about MAC or Benefit brand mascaras, not everyone has the 30$ to drop on those products.... I slightly regret it. Ok, I really regret it. Usually when I don't like something, I'll give it to a friend, after all what doesn't suit me may suit another. Trust me though, the panda eye thing is hot on NO ONE. Needless to say it got trashed after two attempts to use it.
A few reasons not to buy it:
- It's too liquid and goes on poorly; I would have called it: "I don't want to look like I'm wearing makeup eyes".... after 4 coats it still looks average, definitely NOT scandalous!!
- It doesn't dry fast, so if you have naturally long lashes like me, that shit is getting everywhere! 
- That damn brush is just stupidly big. I poked myself in the eye repeatedly. I was sober and everything, the brush just naturally wants to dig your eye out! Maybe they should have called it "Lawsuit Eyes"

Final word: For the love of god, don't buy it! If you're looking for a good drugstore mascara, go for the Covergirl Lash Blast Volume (also around 9$). It's awesome! In just two coats people are checking to see if my lashes are real.
