Rimmel v Rimmel

Rimmel Scandaleyes Reloaded and Scandaleyes Wow next to a Morphe palette on a grey floor

Hey guys,

I’m not loyal to mascara’s, well apart from the L’Oreal Baby Roll Mascara (which reminds me that I REALLY need to but some more of that one), so it is no surprise that I have ended up with 2 different mascaras’ from Rimmel finding it SUPER easy to compare the two. But what ones doe I have?….

It’s the Scandaleyes Reloaded mascara and the Scandaleyes Wow Wings mascara.

This mascara is the one with the orange bottle and looks a lot like a £4 mascara you can get from Asda (which if I’m honest is part of the reason I bought it as I LOVE the Asda mascara). On the bottle it claims to help with “Extreme volume & wear. Easy removal” but if you could tell me where the “extreme volume” comes from that would be great!? The brush is the standard shaped brush that you get for most mascaras and has fibre bristles.

However, it really is nothing like the Asda mascara, I was really disappointed with this one as all it does is coat your lashes black (and I’m being generous by saying that it even does that). There is no lengthening, no thickening, it’s even incapable of clumping your lashes together. I tried layering it up and it does slightly change but nothing near the effect one coat of the next mascara does to your lashes.



This is my standard thickness for eyeliner and you can’t see my lashes above the line. I would feel too self-conscious going out of the house wearing this mascara without eyeliner if I’m honest, well unless you are after the no make-up make-up look.

Scandaleyes Wow Wings

Unlike the Reloaded bottle this one doesn’t state what the mascara is meant to do (is that just the first one over-compensating with it being so naff?). But I can tell you now, this stuff is amazing! The brush is strange however…

But it’s really easy to use and even if you don’t use it as a sort of spoon the way you are meant to, you still get some amazing lashes. You can layer it up and it actually layers! I reckon if you put enough on then you could give a false lash effect. This mascara is up there with the L’Oreal Miss Baby Roll one for me, well worth the money.

This is just one coat!! I know I haven’t put eyeliner on for this photo so in a way you are not getting a true comparison in photos, but come on look at the length difference. Honestly I feel so sad that my current bottle is coming to the end, a trip to Superdrug is needed for another bottle! This is the exact same price as the Reloaded mascara and I think you get so much more for your money.
