*New* Rimmel London Scandaleyes Lycra Flex mascara Review

Ciao Bella!

There has been a few releases of new mascara's from different brands including Rimmel this month. Rimmel London's latest mascara is scandaleyes Lycra Flex mascara which contains Lycra. I believe this is the first mascara that contains Lycra on the UK market. Its currently £4.99 as a introductory offer at Boots, normal price is £6.99 which is relatively cheap for a high street mascara. The new Rimmel London Scandaleyes Lycra Flex mascara is a upgrade of the normal Rimmel London Scandaleyes mascara but contains lyrca. This seems to be the trend of Rimmel new products, as there new kate moss polishes also contain lyrca. 

What makes Rimmel London Scandaleyes Lycra Flex mascara special?
  • Oversized volumising mascara brush
  • Contains LYCRA® 
  • Leaves your lashes soft and flexible - Never stiff or brittle
  • MaxDensity brush covers the whole lash line with one effortless coat. 
  • Flexible Formula enhanced with weightless LYCRA® technology makes lashes look full and voluptuous but remain flexible

How did i  apply?
 I applied to my eyelashes in a zigzag motion and layered on 2 coats.

What did i think of Rimmel London's Scandaleyes Lycra Flex mascara?
I don't normally go for big brush mascaras as i prefer the comb type, as i feel they capture more lashes. The mascara texture itself is good but i feel the real let down of this mascara is the brush and packaging. The big brush is too big for coating and catching bottom lashes, so i had to use my other mascara to do them. In regards to the packing its looks too cheap with the bright green plastic container. Those of you who prefer a mascara in a softer brown shade, unfortunately you won’t be able to get in it in this mascara as it is only available in black.
Although there are some downsides to this mascara, the price i paid £4.99 (after introductory period £6.99) , is competitively priced as most branded mascara are priced above £6 . The lightweight formula leaves your lashes looking longer and non-clumpy and doesn't flake throughout the day.

Price, volumises lashes, Contains LYCRA , doesn't make your lashes feel heavy, non flakey , non-clumpy
Cons: Brush is a little too big for catching bottom lashes, packaging looks a little cheap , only available in black
Bottom line:  I wouldn't purchase this mascara again due to the brush being too big.

Whats your favourite mascara?

I don't think i've ever tried a rimmel mascara so I might give this one a go and see how i get on with it! I usually don't really stray away from what I know and love which is maybelline!
