Rimmel Scandal Eyes Lycra Flex Mascara

The first Oversized Volume mascara with LYCRA® for soft and flexible lashes. 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, never stiff or brittle!
Rimmel Scandaleyes Lycra Flex Mascara comes in a chunky green tube ,The brush is massive, also a bit intimidating if you have hooded eyelids like because I always seem to smudge it on my upper lids. But the good news is, it is quite soft and manages to get to all of my lashes esp the bottom lashes. It gives almost feathery looking lashes. Since the brush is quite big, I recommend removing excess mascara off of the wand. I have this in black, which does a decent job and gives very black and feathery lashes. This mascara only takes about 2 coats to get how I wanted my lashes to look.  I can achieve the lengthening with just one coat, and with another coat, it thickens and lengthens little more. If you keep building up, then you can end up with spidery lashes and It does clump a little if you don’t let first coat to let dry completely. So if you are in hurry, you may want to be little careful. After two coats my lashes were still soft and i didn’t get the hard "crisp" feeling, you get with some mascara. It makes my nonexistent, thin lashes little dramatic Rimmel Scandaleyes Lycra Flex Mascara lasts until I take it off, it doesn't smudge or flakes.. The removal is easy as it comes off easily with regular makeup remover.

  • If you want soft lashes with good volume and definition
  • If you want smudge and flake free mascara
  • If you want a mascara which is pigmented and gives deep black lashes
  • If you want perfectly spreads out lashes
  • If you want dramatic looking eyelashes


  •     If you want a waterproof formula
  •     If you looking for more natural looking lashes
  •     if you think brush head is too large for your eyes
  •     If you like layering, as it ends up giving spider-ish lashes
  •     If you think it takes time to dry

Overall I think it somewhat lives up to its claims, It has lasted all day without flaking and gives a decent curl with a big brush to coat each and every lash. It gives my short lashes the dramatic volume.
