Rimmel Scandal Eyes Eyeshadow Sticks

I bought these a couple days ago, and was freaking out over them! I was bowing down to their existence. I was loving them obsessively. 

But after a day or two of trying them out, I’m not sure what I think of these. 

ImageThis is a swatch of the two colors I purchased “Tempting Turquoise” and “Paranoid Purple”. They were both a little glittery, not shimmery, but not SO glittery it was screaming into people’s faces.  

Tempting Turquoise was WAHBAAAAAM..bright. If you guys have seen that one thick, neon stripe across model’s eyelids on the catwalks a lot, you can totally recapture the look with this color. It’s SOO bright and pigmented, but use it sparingly! 

Paranoid Purple was okay. I liked it a little. I mean, it’s OKAY. The purple color is beautiful, but you can’t blend it as easily as Tempting Turquoise, and it seems to smear and smudge more. 

A WORD ABOUT BOTH OF THESE: 

These are super creamy and pigmented, but they last much longer with a primer or base underneath, OR with a shadow on top. You may also have trouble smudging out the color with your finger after you apply it, because it sets fast and  the color sheers out once you blend.

And still, I’ll probably go back for more. For 5 or 6 bucks a pencil, that’s pretty decent considering the prices of other cream shadows. 

If you check them out, let me know how they work out for you!
