Rated 5 out of 5 by zfyreangel Amazing lashes!
I had never ventured in to the mascara realm of Rimmel London products before receiving the Retro Glam mascara complimentary in my Influenster Spring 2014 box. I was excited to try it and this product does NOT disappoint! I got amazing "kapow!" lashes that lasted all day. With that being said, it was also easy to remove. My ONLY gripe (and this is my fault totally) is that it came off one day at work when I started laughing so hard I was crying. They aren't kidding when they say not waterproof. I am going to switch to the waterproof formula for the summer (so excited they have both options!) because I live in an area where we get 100+ temps.

I received this product free from Influenster to try out. I didn't think much of it because I have more mascara than anyone ever needs (note: i hate most of them) When I first opened this mascara I found the shape of the brush pretty off-putting. I dont really like special shaped brushes because I always get mascara on my lid somehow. This was no different. Sure enough I got the black goop on my lids.... However, after practice and learning how NOT to do that with this brush, I have to say I really like it. IT stayed on ALL DAY and really did fan out my lashes like it promised .I didnt notice any flakes and just enjoyed suuuuper long lashes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by vesperdreadlow It's overall just an okay mascara.
This is a decent mascara, but I do not believe it is the best drugstore mascara by any means. I believe you really only get the "bold lash look" by applying several coats of the mascara, which lead me to some clumping, so there's that. My biggest problem with it is that the brush is so big that I honestly had a bit of difficult time covering my lashes all over without smearing or starting to get it semi-clumpy. I could see this working for some people, but for me, this mascara was just okay. Nothing special and nothing I'd go running out to buy again.

I have been searching for a mascara that doesn't clump or make my eye make up crazy and unattractive. I was a bit skeptic before buying the Rimmel scandaleyes retro glam mascara a few months ago because i thought it would be just like all of the other that I have tried in the past. Fortunately is wasnt. Infact it super excceded my expectations. The brush applicator is not to skinny or too bigger and it made brushing on the mascara an easy process. this mascara didnt clump or weigh my eyelashes down. I was lucky enough to get a free full size sample to use complimentary of Influenster. Thank you Influenster and RimmelLondon my lashes good great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CrazyDogLady Length without clumpiness!
(Okay, yeah, clumpiness isn't a real word, but I'm using it anyway!)
I got to try out Rimmel's Retro Glam Mascara thanks to a program called Influenster who shares products with you (for free) to test and provide honest reviews.
I've been using the Retro Glam mascara for about 2 weeks, daily. I love it! I was blessed with naturally long lashes (don't hit me!) So when I use the Retro Glam mascara it really, really POPS these babies!
With just one coat I get length, but two coats gives me a REAL "whoa" look. I would definitely (and likely will) buy this product.
I do not notice stickiness, flakes, or clumps. It lasts all day, and looks very nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mshell0123 Not bad! Give it a try!
I was really excited to try out this new brush, but when I applied it to my lashes I had a hard time getting the product on them. The odd shape made it kind of difficult to get the mascara on evenly. It clumped a little bit on my lashes and I had to keep brushing them to try and get the clumps out. Once I did get some of the mascara on my lashes I wore it all day. I am usually a person that needs waterproof mascara because I smudge all around my eyes. The Rimmel Retro Glam mascara didn't smudge on me though! It was great!
Overall, I thought that the packaging was cute and the product worked well, but I didn't like the shape of the brush.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AleenaAverly Not what I was looking for...
I was so xcited to try Rimmel's Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation and find that i loved it so much that when I was sent the Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara, I couldn't wait to try it out. But I was very disappointed. I'll start with the pros.
Makes your lashes long
Great for a natural look
Doesn't bleed under your eyes in hot situations
Sounds great right? Well…..not if you read what it promises.
Doesn't build onto itself without clumping
Doesn't add volume really
Keeps lashes looking almost like you don't have anything on them
When I think retro glam, I think crazy thick and lush lashes….this however, not my cup of tea :/

Rated 3 out of 5 by kmtsaver Retro Glam Mascara
This mascara is affordable. However, I am not head over heels about the way it applies. The mascara seemed thin and goopy at the same time when I applied it. It didn't seem to separate the lashes like I hoped. After I finished applying the mascara, I was satisfied with the results. Would this be my " go to" mascara?...probably not. Will it be a mascara I purchase to throw in a travel bag or purse?...most likely. It is a good price for a decent product. And for the price, I wouldn't be upset if it disappeared on accident. I know I could easily get another one without having to break the bank! It doesn't seem to want to smudge, which is always a plus.
