I've had Rimmel Scandaleyes Extreme Black mascara in my stash for a while. I bought it back when the Scandaleyes range was new. Of course, I could have waited, but no I HAD to have it, even though it wouldn't be opened until months later!
Taken from Rimmel London Australia- "For lashes so big, it's almost criminal! High impact colour thanks to extreme black pigments, MaxDensity brush: Our biggest brush ever. Captures and plumps every lash, Supersize formula with collagen and keratin."
I love the tapered tube. The orange is striking, especially with that black background behind the lettering.
The brush is quite large.
Of course, I had to get the Extreme Black version. I love me some blackest black mascara. I do find the pigment to be indeed a true black.
What I am not a fan of is the brush. I just find the circumference too big, especially for those inner lashes.
This product does provide volume and length, the 2 things I want from a mascara. Unfortunately what comes with that, in this case is clumpy lashes. I do wonder that over time, when the mascara has dried out a little, the formula might be easier to work with. Because I've only just opened it, it is very wet. Instead of just scraping off product as I pull the wand out of the bottle, I've actually had to also dab the brush onto a face wipe to remove the excess.
You know what, though? I don't hate this mascara, or even dislike it. I'm happy to continue using, now that I've found a technique that helps avoid a lot of the clumping. Needing to brush through my lashes more than I normally would, does take a little time, but the results are worth it. I'll let the photo do the talking :)
What a difference this mascara makes to my lashes!
