Rimmel London Scandaleyes LYCRA Flex Mascara - Review

I do love trying different mascaras as you will know by now! I have a whole gallery on facebook dedicated to mascaras so you can see how different mascaras appear on my lashes . As readers of know I don't use false lashes or lash inserts or extensions. I like to see what result I get purely from using a mascara available to purchase.

The latest mascara I have been putting through its paces is Rimmel London's Scandaleyes LYCRA Flex in black

Rimmel London say 

A big volume mascara that won't leave your lashes stiff or brittle, so you can build drama from day to night! Lycra Technology formula makes lashes look full and voluptuous while remaining soft. MaxDensity brush covers whole lash line with one effortless coat to reveal and plump every lash

My thoughts 

I was a little concerned about trying this mascara I have to be honest... I mean my impression of lycra is stretchy and I had visions of stretchy gloopy mascara. I needn't have worried though as it was nothing of the sort!
The brush is big and bushy, a bit too big personally for my little eyes really so I was careful when applying (almost too careful) so I abandoned being too careful to get decent application and in the process I did make a bit of a mess applying the mascara but on the plus side it does pick up the lashes easily and the black is a nice rich shade of black.
I found the lengthening properties of the mascara great and it wasn't clumpy at all, I had nice thick lashes and best of all they remained silky soft thanks to the lycra and no flaking either.
