Hope you all are doing lovely!! I’m currently holidaying in Muscat and its my first time with the little one. We drove down from Dubai and it was good 5 hour drive. We decided to take the risk and hit the road after some quick packing up and we were prepared for an exhausting journey with the baby… AH! Exhausting is an understatement!!! Well, sooner or later we had to do this, so why not now?!
I finally took some time off and decided to sit down with a cup of coffee, overlooking the beach and started writing down this post that was much overdue. Wearing the Scandaleyes mascara right now with minimal makeup, I’m all set to share my review with you guys.
This has been a talk of the town in the drugstore category in the beauty world and I’m quite impressed with the product pay off. The Scandaleyes Reloaded Mascara is a new version of the already exisiting Volume Flash Scandaleyes Mascara.
Packaging: The mascara holds up in a fiery orange coloured plastic tube and has a thick cylindrical shape to it that is curved towards the ends. I quite think that its quite bulky and takes a little more than usual storage space. Quite an unusual packaging for a mascara. Well, considering the price point that is quite affordable, you don’t expect a luxurious finish.
Performance: It contains wax modified polymer for an intense black look along with keratin, collagen and lash-plumping formula. Its perfect for those who have thinner strength of eye lashes and require build up with a clump free finish. If you have a thicker lash fringe like mine, then you might have to build your way up with several coats or prep the lashes up with a lash curler or a primer to hold them. It doesn’t budge, smudge or clump the lashes and at the same time it lasts for long hours. I’m not sure if it lasts for 24hours as I don’t wear makeup that long to notice the claim. The tapered tip is long and is designed to fit the lash fringe completely so that the application is smooth and perfect from corner to corner. The texture isn’t heavy and in fact its quite gel like and light weight. It doesn’t feel like you have anything on and is perfect for day to day wear. If you like an extreme look, then this might not fit the bill. To add on, its easily removable with a makeup remover and you don’t have to work to hard to get rid of it.
Verdict: I would use it for an understated or a no-makeup makeup look, as I enjoy a thicker, fuller and a dramatic look for the most part. For those who like a subtle look with a light texture, then this is what you would like to purchase. From a drugstore point of view, I think is a great buy and totally worth it!
