I promised 12 drugstore mascara reviews in 2014 and so far, I’ve gotten four done: Maybelline The Rocket, Maybelline The Falsies, Rimmel ScandalEyes Retro Glam and Revlon Bold Lacquer. I need to finish 8 more in less than 12 weeks, so I better get on it! On to #5: Rimmel ScandalEyes Rockin’ Curves mascara.
So, when I do mascara reviews, I take a picture with the tube of mascara showing somewhere in the picture. That way if I don’t get a chance to write the review right away or wear different mascaras for a week then I remember which mascara it was.
I usually edit them out of the pictures, mostly so you get a clearer picture of my lashes. When I went through my phone to upload pics to this post, I had taken three different sets of pictures of this mascara and had completely forgotten that I’d done that. And really, that’s the theme of my review. This mascara is nice, it does exactly what it’s supposed to do but it’s completely forgettable.
Rebekah and I were talking and I told her that if you were on vacation and had forgotten your regular mascara and went to the store to replace it for your trip and this one was on sale, I would totally recommend it. Which sounds harsh but it’s not meant to be. It’s just not a memorable mascara. It’s the worker bee of the mascara world.
The wand is kind of neat, with it’s wave to the spoolie part but it’s not an integral part of applying the mascara. It’s just kind of interesting and gimmicky.
So, there you have it, a big, solid “Meh!”. Thumbs…… across?
Any just-okay mascaras in your collection? Happy Shopping!
