Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner Review & Swatches
I recently located Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner at my local Harmons. These launched earlier last year in the UK however, they are newly launched for Spring 2013 here in the US. The displays were originally limited to three shades however, the pencil has since launched as part of the general catalog and includes ten total shades (including a nude shade for brightening eyes!).
At under $5 per liner they are an ideal pick up for those on a budget. At Ulta they are currently $4.49 each and available as a BOGO offer so you can get the second pencil at 50% Off! Score!
Here are some thoughts!
These are rather fab pencils with creamy finish, excellent pigment, and an easy to apply and smudge formula. The creamy texture glides easily over eyes without skipping or tugging leaving behind a nicely pigmented line that smudges easily should you so desire. I purchased and tried pretty basic shades of Brown and Black however, the color catalog has some nicer popping shades should you want a bit more drama including deep blues and aquas.
On my drier eyes they lasted a full day without flaking or smudging and on my waterline about a four hour period before disappearing a bit and completely fading after hour five. The texture was easy to work with due to the creamy consistency of the pencils and they had a fairly easy to remove formula as well at the end of the night with a little eye makeup remover.
If you’re looking for a creamy textured eyeliner sans sparkle with a creamy semi-matte finish under five dollars these are an excellent pick up. They apply easily and wear well on both the lashline and waterline.
Nice budget pick for an eyeliner!
