For years I was a brand snob. I had used the same brand of make-up for as long as I could remember. I never even considered other brands especially drugstore brands. However over the past few years I have been venturing out and trying several of the drugstore brands. And have learned that I love the Rimmel London Kate Moss lipsticks. Walgreens recently had the Rimmel London brand on sale for 50% off, not the normal BOGO 50% off but straight 50% off. So in addition to picking up a few more of the Rimmel London Kate Moss lipsticks, this was the perfect time to try some of their other products.
Today I'm sharing with you the Rimmel London ScandalEyes Shadow Sticks I picked up. I've seen similar products, like the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencils, and the NYX Jumbo Pencils, some of which I own. But I decided to give the ScandalEyes a try.
My first impression was that these would be good to use as a shadow base, but upon further use and research, they are actually shadow sticks. Their pigmentation is crazy! I have even used them for my lower lash liner. I would love to see other color selections. Currently there are 9 in the collection. I have 8 of the 9, but am on the hunt for that 9th...
One point of warning, the Rimmel London ScandalEyes Shadow Sticks are very soft, so when removing the cap, be careful. As you can see, I had an issue when I was opening my Guilty Grey (below).
This Tempting Turquoise (above) is gorgeous! Look at that depth of color. That is definitely one that needs to be in your collection.
This Blackmail (below) has a beautiful velvety look. Love it! While some will use it for that smokey eye, I'm not that bold, yet. I use it as my liner.
Blamed Blue...what can I say? You know how much I love my blue polishes and shadows. I'll just let the picture speak for itself...gorgeous!
Rimmel London ScandalEyes claims to 24 hour/Waterproof. Well, I can't think of any instance that I would need to wear my makeup for 24 hours but I can see that some make wear their makeup to the gym, beach or swimming. So to test the waterproof claim, I ran my hand under full force water for 2 minutes (forgive me Mother Earth). Here are the results...

I purchased these from Walgreens. Their regular price is $4.49 for 0.11 oz (3.25g). But as mentioned, I bought them during the 50% off sale. Even at full price, well worth the price.
Have you tried the Rimmel London ScandalEyes yet? Which are your favor shades and what other shades would you like to see Rimmel introduce?
Grace, Peace, & Blessings.
