Rimmel Scandaleyes


It's no secret that I love eye makeup, more so if it's sixties inspired like in this editorial. Winged liner, dramatic lashes and of course shimmering metallics on the eyes are what dreams are made of in the makeup world. Well Rimmel has you covered with their new Scandaleyes* releases.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara This mascara is the ultimate for fluttery, Alexa Chung-esque lashes. The wand is an hourglass shape which means that it coats each of your lashes individually. It really makes your lashes look fuller and dramatically enhances them. One thing I did notice was that it didn't hold a curl in my lashes but if you use an eyelash curler first then you should have no problem with this. It does not smudge or go flaky and is pretty water resistant too.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Stick in Bad Girl Bronze Clinique released eye crayons earlier in the year which are very similar to these, just with a heftier price tag. This shade is very similar to Mac Bronze but in pencil form. It is a coppery-brown with gold undertones throughout. The eyeshadow sticks are so easy to use. I draw this fairly neatly up to the crease and then blend it out with a fluffy brush. You can also use your fingers too if you're on the go. This colour is really long-lasting as well. I'll definitely be picking up more of these.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick and Thin Liner Winged liner is something I tend to steer clear of. If I'm honest, eyeliner rarely makes its way onto my upper lashline. I'm just so clumsy and don't like having to take all my eye makeup off to fix it. Well those days may soon be gone. This liner has a felt-tip style nib. The thickness of your lines really depends on how you angle the pen which means you have more control over the amount of liner you apply. As always winged liner does take a bit of practice, I still cannot do it perfectly the first go. This liner certainly makes it a lot easier though!
