Review & Swatch - Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeliner in 'Bright Blue'

Have heard a lot about Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal eyeliners and have been wanting to try these since a while now. I finally bought it when Big W had 4 $ off on Rimmel products. I will be reviewing Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal in 'Bright Blue' today.  

There are a lot of good pigmented, long staying, smudge proof, creamy eyeliners out there in the market both drug store and high end. I have so far tried Urban Decay Glide on pencils, Nyx Slide on pencils, Maybelline Master Drama Eye Studio and now this and I have been impressed with all of them. Lets see the good and the bad of this product ..

This is how it looks on me (Maybelline Tattoo Bad to Bronze on the lid)

 Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in 'Bright Blue'

Three swipes on the right, One swipe on the Left

The Good
  • Decent Color payoff
  • Creamy texture, glides on well on the eyes
  • Long staying  - stays put on my upper lash line through the day, on my waterline and lower lashline, starts wearing off only on the inner and outer corner towards the end of the day, but so do most of the long stay ones on me.
  •  Water proof but not completely smudge proof, will smear a bit if you forcefully try to smudge it 
  • Colored Packaging - easy to locate 
  • Perfect for a pop of color

The Bad
  • The pigmentation could have been better, though its easily build-able . As you can see in the swatches above, one swipe is not that pigmented. 
  • Some people may find it too bright (though I find it gorgeous)

The Price 
10 AUD (circa) - I bought it on sale
Where to buy  
Priceline, Kmart, Big W, Target

Overall I would recommend this eyeliner and I would love to try other colors from this Range ..
