Rimmel - Scandaleyes Khols in Nude, Taupe and lil Haul
Rimmel London has really been impressing with the Kate moss selections of lipsticks and other products but the standout that I've wanted in my collection is the scandaleyes. Now il admit i own load of kohl and I've not found any creamier then the Urban decay liners.
Boy was i wrong and I've now found a complete and cheaper alternative now to them, of course we all have liners like Urban decay we want to use as a treat rather then every day as they do cost a lot of money. Plus honestly i want to know my eye is not going to be stabbed with some stray splinter of wood when i sharpen it and with urban decay I've never seen or experienced this.
So when i heard about the Scandaleyes i was sceptical and thought humm , really better or on par pigment the Urban decay ? So i thought only one way to see if the hype is worth it and to buy some myself and try the theory. So i purchased the Nude and Taupe as again i own a lot of the Urban decay perversion (black) so i know if these work i can repurchase more.
So on swatching to feel the consistency and see the pigment up close, i was impressed as its a creamy formula and doesn't take any warming nor running of the pencil to get the start of the pigment running.
Also the pigment is really good and i was really surprised, i didn't expect that sort of quality from a high street brand of makeup and I'm glad its finally got a formula available at a fraction of the cost.
So the nude is a nice matte that i can use as a highlight colour and blend out if i want to multi-up this colour, also great to brighten up the corner of the eye too. So very versatile as i don't tend to have great joy with colours other then black to stick to my waterline, so these will be used when i don't want to use my black for a day look. The taupe i have used on my lash line as a lovely accompaniment to a neutral eye as there is a little bit of shimmer in it, so it really does blend into your eyeshadow lovely. So glad i diverted from the norm and bought these too. Really impressed and will be on my regular list of beauty items from now on.
So other items i bought on my Rimmel 3 for 2 haul
Extra Super lash Mascara
Glameyes Liquid eyeliner and Stay matte powder
So the Extra super lash maascara is a change from my falsh lash effect but i want to branch out and see whats on offer, as i saw it was on the offer i just thought its not too expensive and i like the look of the wand it has plus if the pigments on the scandaleyes are good then the other products might be coming up as-well. So i also got the Glameyes liquid eyeliner, as mine has run out and i wanted to branch out to a high street brand as an alternative. I use so much that i need a cheaper alternative. Now ive heard a few people say they like this liner and i thought lets give it a go and see if it helps me achieve the perfect cat eye and flick.
Extra super Lash and Glameyes
So another product on the Buzz that i think ooo i need that as well High end powder are fine milled and great. Feel amazing and offer a light and un-smothered feeling to the face.However the price is not friendly and id rather hit pan on a few of these Stay mattes if they do the job well then a NARS or MAC powder. So on first feel they are soft and non caking, lightweight and from what i can tell a great alternative, however i think this powder may need to be taken for touchups and the not so secure packaging would leave me reluctant to carry this around, as no one wants a bag full of powder.
So we will see in looks week what these products will bring.
