The Rimmel Eyeliner Edit


I have noticed that I am starting to get quite the Rimmel Eyeliner collection, so I thought hey why not do a post on all 3. I don’t hold Rimmel eyeliners in any sort of limelight I just seem to pick them up when I see them, do you have products/brands like that? I also do it with Maybelline mascara’s I just buy them well just because really. So let’s take a look at the three I possess.

To start off I have the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Gel Liner in black £6.99. I love a gel liner and one of my favourite gel liners is the Mac Fluidline. This liner comes in a 2.4g pot with a cute little eyeliner brush. Rimmel claim it gives “Up to 24hrs of rich, intense colour that doesn’t flake, smudge, smear or run”. So let’s start with the liner, the consistency is quite thick and creamy making it quite difficult sometimes to judge the amount of product on the brush. Once you have this down it is very easy to apply like most gel liners I find them much easier to control, however once on I did find it faded/smudged quite easy/quickly. I started using it with a different primer and it did have a longer lasting time so I completely recommend using if you have a decent non-oily primer. The pigment I was completely happy with black as black The brush however I am not a fan of, or it is just that I give favouritism to my MAC 209.

Secondly is the Rimmel Scandaleyes Micro Liner Black £5.49 – Now Rimmel claim this eyeliner is “A state-of-the-art formula with a super-high concentration of intense pigments for an ultra-black, tattoo-like line which dries in seconds and resists just about anything, water, heat, sweat, flaking, smudging, for 24 hours”. To be honest I won’t go into too much detail about why I disagree with Rimmel’s statement as I hated it! Now I don’t know if I just picked up a crappy product but from the second I opened it up it the nib was completely dry. The pigment was awful it just drew a faded black line. Even with a few layers it just looked as if your liner was done in felt tip. The liner does go on to the eye very precisely it is just the colour that lets this product down.

Last up is the Rimmel Scandaleyes Jumbo Liner Black £5.49 again Rimmel says this liner is ” Long lasting ultra-black colour with jumbo applicator, draws lines in one easy stroke & that is is waterproof etc etc. The nib for this product is really sturdy so you can get a great line flowing along the lash line, making the product very easy to use. To get a good pigment I recommend going over the lines a few times to get the blackest black look. This stayed in place all night without smudging or flaking off but it also was really easy to remove. This is a great drugstore liner and probably my favourite of the three.
