I recently grabbed up Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner when I saw it in the Rimmel Holiday 2014 display. Apparently this has been out a while in the US and I didn’t even know about it.
It is slightly deceiving though as the packaging does dub it as “new” but it looks like it launched a few months ago!
Anyone try it yet?
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner comes housed in a plastic jar and includes a small eyeliner brush for application. At $5.79, it’s quite a nice steal!
I have to admit that L’Oreal Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner is one of the best drugstore eyeliners I’ve had the pleasure of using but if you want to go a few dollars cheaper (L’Oreal’s version will set you back around $8.99) I’d say that the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner is a good alternative.

This has an excellent black pigment with a slightly glossy finish. It glides on with a creamy texture and provides a perfectly smooth line without skipping or tugging during application. It doesn’t smudge on my drier eyes nor does it flake or crack and wore for a solid 12 hour on my eyes, removing easily at the end of the night!
All in all I was pretty darned impressed with the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner formula. If you want to cheapen up your gel eyeliner routine this under $6 buck eyeliner is a perfect budget replacement for your more higher end gel liners that cost you $20 and upwards!
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner is available now at drugstores.
