Review: Rimmel London’s ScandalEYES Volume Flash Mascara

After doing my makeup this morning in what I’d like to call a “mad dash”, I forgot to put on my mascara. When I got in the car and looked in the mirror I immediately noticed it. “Shucks!” Of course you already know that I wasn’t going to leave it that way, I felt undone. So, I went to Walgreen’s to get some ginger ale and to look for a tube of mascara. As I scanned the beauty aisle… I knew I didn’t want to spend $10 on mascara, at least not this morning. As I get further down the aisle, I pass Wet N Wild and stop at the Rimmel London display. I had remembered seeing their new Volume Flash ScandalEyes mascara on a commercial and to to that off, It was on sale for $3.64, (regular price $6.99) BINGO! I bought the bright orange tube in 003 Extreme Black.… and here it is:

Here’s what I like about it:
* It’s clump-free with 1-2 coats
* It contains collagen and keratin for healthy & strong lashes
* It’s cruelty-free (not tested on animals)
* It’s great for contact lens wearers or people with sensitive eyes
*Bright orange packaging, easy to find in train case
Here’s what I’m not to thrilled about:
*The brush is super humongous (I guess that’s the volume factor though)
*It isn’t water-proof or smudge-proof : (
*It gave me max coverage with about 3-4 coats 
* When you pull it out of the tube there will be an excess of product on the tip
It’s an okay mascara. I’ve never had to used 3-4 coats to get that full faux lash effect.
Update: There is a coupon where you can save even more on this product. This is why you have to be a smart consumer and do your research first before you buy. Impulse shopping is the worst kinda shopping. I recently learned that Rimmel ScandalEyes product & Rimmel Nail Polish is marked 50% off at Walgreens through 3/31, depending on which coupon you have, makes it as low as $.99  after coupon. 

Use  $1/1 Rimmel London Product 03/11/2012 RP Insert (exp 05/31/2012) or
$1/1 Rimmel London Product 02/12/2012 RP Insert (exp 04/30/2012)
Final Price $.99

Would I be wrong if i took mines back got a refund and then turned around and used my coupons to get it for $1, would I be wrong???
