Rimmel London Scandaleyes X-Xtreme Mascara*


Rimmel London Scandaleyes X-Xtreme Mascara Review - Sweetaholic Beauty

Rimmel London are really smashing out their releases at the moment, with yet another new mascara on the market. The new Rimmel London Scandaleyes X-Xtreme mascara is actually one that I have not seen a lot of hype around, and seems as though it has flown under the radar a little.

Other mascaras in the Scandaleyes range have mostly been average at best. I had read a lot of bad reviews about previous versions, so I had mostly given them a miss. So when I received this particular version, my hopes were not set high.

I was pretty delighted when I saw the brush. The dual bristles means the brush can focus on both lengthening and volumising. I found this brush was also really helpful at getting those hard-to-reach lashes in the corner of my eye, as well as my bottom lashes.

No mascara, One eye with mascara, Both eyes with mascara

As you can see from the pictures, the Rimmel London Scadaleyes X-Xtreme mascara certainly does help create volume and lengthens my lashes. I would say that it doesn't do a lot in terms of curling, but it does enough for my liking. I found that it did go on very thickly, which can be a tad hard to work with, and found that for an every day look I needed to run a clean mascara wand through my lashes to remove the excess. However, even when I didn't do that, the mascara still did not flake or transfer, and did not give me panda eyes.

Whilst this is definitely not the best mascara in the world, it's very far from the worst. I think this is a beautiful mascara particularly if you are wanting very dark and full lashes. I've opted to not use this as an every day mascara so much, but like to use it for going out, or for reapplying over my day-to-day mascara before going out.

I feel like the Rimmel London Scandaleyes X-Xtreme mascara does what it says it does; the lengthens and creates volume well. It does minimal curling but enough to give me a false lash look, but may not do enough for others with super straight lashes. I found that this did weigh down my lashes a little when I was wearing more than one coat, so that is something to be wary of, but with one coat I was fine.


Overall I really do like this mascara. I would definitely consider purchasing this for a special occasion or night out, as it does give you a nice dark look. 

Have you tried the Rimmel London Scandaleyes X-Xtreme mascara? If so, what are your thoughts?

  1. Great review! I didn't love this mascara, but like you said it's definitely not the worst and it's great for a quick lengthening job before you head out the door! Great review babe xx

  3. The volume of your lashes look great. I suppose using a curling wand would help with what the product lacks!

  4. Rimmel certainly is smashing out the products, and I can't get enough! I like this mascara, the wand was a little weird in the beginning and truthfully, I made a mess :) I do find there to be a little too much on the wand, and like you find myself having to 'brush' my lashes with another wand.
