REVIEW: Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Volume Flash Mascara

I don't know if this happens with my fellow bloggers but every now and then I get 'writers block'... My mind goes blank, all thoughts go Poof and I am struggling to write even one little sentence...
What helps is some really Strong Coffee, needless to say without sugar and music blasting through my ears... This helps me block everything out and concentrate on the article at hand...

So the song that I am currently listening to while I type out this post is Habits (Stay High) by Tove Lo! F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S. stuff!

DISCLAIMER: The video may be a little explicit for some of you... You may want to switch the screen but do listen to the song...

So coming back to the actual review... Please put your hands together for Rimmel London Volume Flash Scandal Eyes Mascara... The last time I got a mascara from Rimmel (Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Show Off Mascara), I wasn't really impressed. Heck! I almost hated it... And hence, I wasn't going to pick up another Rimmel Mascara but the SA was really persistent and well I gave in ;) And Boy! Am I glad I did?

Price of Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Volume Flash Mascara:

It costs INR 465/-

Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Volume Flash Mascara is one of the best mascaras I have used till date... It comes a close second to my fave mascara Ellis Faas Mascara.

The Rimmel Volume Flash mascara comes in a delightful Orange, chubby looking packaging much like the Maybelline Colossal Mascaras and has a dense, bushy, nylon brush that helps you achieve not substantial length but not too much Volume. Texture wise the Volume Flash mascara is gloopy and not really runny. It holds the curl for almost 6-8 hours, is waterproof and does  not cause panda eyes!

However, if you have thin, short and sparse lashes you may have to be a little careful during application else you run the risk of getting mascara on your eyelids.

Overall Rating: 

Its a great mascara for those looking for length and are on a budget. It doesn't volumize too much though!


  1. nicely reviewed
    looks like decent mascara
    that writing blockage happens with me too ..many times ;)

  2. I am big on mascaras, should try this one sometime soon. Thanks for a great review.
    And yeah coffee is my companion too :-)

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…
