My Thoughts: Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadowsticks


Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Sticks in ‘Bulletproof Beige’, ‘Bad Bronze’ and ‘Paranoid Purple’

Yanno when you just have the urge to splurge on makeup? Well I had that the other day, really badly. And ended up splashing out just under £15 on Rimmel’s popular Shadow Sticks. I bought 3 shades; ‘Bad Bronze’ which is a dark glittery, bronzy colour; ‘Bulletproof Beige’ which is a shimmery, rose goldy, beige colour and ‘Paranoid Purple’ which is a really vibrant purple. They’re £4.49 each but for a product like this I’d expect the price to be a lot higher. They’re all really soft and creamy and apply really smoothly onto the lid without over applying if that makes any sense (because they’re so pigmented)? Once on the lid they blend easily with a brush (I use my Real Techniques Base Shadow Brush and Deluxe Crease Brush) or with just your finger. They’re long lasting but end up creasing without the use of a primer. What I love the most is that they can be worn just on their own (which I like to do) with lashings of mascara or you can use them as an eyeshadow base so it’s a good old multi-functional product. Now the bad things, they break so easily as you can tell from the top picture the middle one (Bad Bronze) is broken and broke on my first try of using it which was so disappointing and the worst thing? I can’t find my pencil sharpener! Another thing I noticed is that when using the more glittery pencils under the eyes, it irritates the waterline quite a bit. I found my eyes went quite red and blotchy so next time I’ll just keep it to the top lid!

Repurchase? Yes.
