A lot of you may think that the answer to this is a given, but believe me, you will soon be very surprised when I give you my feedback on each mascara. I know I know, how dare I compare Rimmel to this world class makeup line, I mean how could I even put them both in the same sentence right?
When I first got Bobbi Brown, Extreme Party Mascara I was more than excited to use it for a night out, I mean let’s face it, the name ‘Extreme Party Mascara’ really does make you want to just let your hair down and get all dolled up! So that’s exactly what I did!
To my surprise, and I feel almost guilty to have to say this, but after a few hours of applying this mascara, my lashes were flat. My lashes were lifeless. And a lot of the product had smeared off leaving flakes under my eyes.
The Rimmel, Scandel Eyes which I initially bought for an everyday use really took me by surprise as it did absolute wonders for my eyes! I instantly saw a difference in my lashes after applying this mascara as my lashes were fuller,longer and the product stayed put until I washed it off.
So which should you choose?
Honestly, it all comes down to what exactly you want your mascara to do I mean Extreme Party is a misleading name because it’s pretty much like any typical mascara. So if you’re looking for a natural curl and nothing too dramatic, I’d recommend you get something cheap and cheerful in your local chemist because Bobbi Brown, Extreme Party Mascara isn’t worth the money for it’s performance!
If you want something that adds extra length/volume to your lashes, something that really IS waterproof and doesn’t come off until you want it to, then go for Rimmel Scandel Eyes! I know the packaging isn’t great and if you happen to fall asleep with this mascara on, it will hurt, but after all it only costs about 8 euros and I think it’s priced exactly where it should be!
Have you tried these products before? If so, did you experience the same things that I did?
