Fabulous Friday Finds: Rimmel Scandal Eyes Show Off Mascara!

Published June 22, 2012 by majormakeupmadness

Hey Guys,

So today I have a reveiw for you! I called it fabulous friday finds (I though the name was cute!), its about rimmels new scandal eyes show off mascara! There is an original scandal eyes mascara but this is  the newest version. Image

The packaging is made of plastic and is abright fucshia/purple colour. I cant make up my mind whether I think the packaging is tacky or not, but hey, its purple so its all good! 🙂

The wand is funky too, its one of the best bits! Its a plastic wand with little spikes to comb through your lashes, and it has a ball on the end making getting the outer and inner lashes easy! Image

I got this mascara 2 days ago at my local Boots, it was £4.99 as it was an introduction offer.

So what does it look like on the eyes?  Heres without mascaraImage

Now with one coat: Image

And a second coat: Image

As you can see this is more of a volumising mascara. The formula is dryer than I would have like, but then again I prefer more defining mascaras. I think it is really good for the price though.

One problem I found with this mascara is that it flakes off, I took a picture of my eye after a whole day of wearing it and there are black specks under my eyes… the same happened today.ImageI guess this isnt a major problem, but its a bit annoying wondering if you have black flecks under your eyes the whole day, and if you smudge them you have marks on your face!

Overall thoughts:

Packaging 6/10

Wand 9/10

Formula: 7/10

How it looks on: 8/10

Would I buy it again? – Yes but only if it was on offer.

Would I recommend it? – If you want to try something new then yes, but you can get better mascaras at the drugstore.

So what did you think of my reveiw? Are you gonna try rimmels scandal eyes mascara?

Feel free to leave your thoughts and requests below!

Thank you!  xoxox


Yellow & Fuchsia fix! – a makeup trend to look out for…

Published May 2, 2012 by majormakeupmadness

Hey guys,

Today I am going to be talking about a look ive seen quite a few times recently. I saw it on Nicki Minaj in her video super bass, and also as in my avon catalogue. It’s going to be about fuchsia and lemon yellow nails and makeup, it doesn’t always have to be lemon yellow but it has a nicer contrast in my opinion.

Her are some examples of the look I did on myself, I took the pictures on my ipod.


I personally wouldn’t wear this full-out look everyday, it’s quite dramatic and bright. However, I do like to have a bronze smokey eye and fuchsia lips going on, if ya know what I mean?

I know some of you reading this may think, it may be a very unflattering look, it may be down to opinion, but actually you’ll be suprised how complementing this look is in beauty technical terms, lol.

3 Reasons fuchsia and yellow is flattering

. First of all fuchia has cool, blue tones to it, which means when you wear it on your lips it makes your teeth look whiter! This goes for any cool toned lipstick, however it is more prominant in fushia as its more of a purpleish- blue.

. Next, yellow is one of the best colour to wear on your eyes, it is universally flattering and brightens the white in your eyes and makes them pop.

. Lastly as fuchsia has purple tones in it and yellow and purple are on opposite sides of the colour wheel, they flatter each other immensely. It really brightens a dull face when you wear this combo and may distracr from other problems you have for example acne. If you have something going on in another part of your makeup, people tend to focus on that, not a pssible spot you have on your chin etc.

Random: Here a nice quote i found recently:

Everything has beauty, but not everyone see’s it

I hope you enjoyed reading this post, thank you very much,
