Except for lipsticks, everything in brown quite allures me, many a times brown is my new black. Love brown leather jackets (biker style), brown oxford shoes <3 and my new love Rimmel gel eye liner in 002 Brown.
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Water Proof Gel Eye Liner Review
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Water Proof Gel Eye Liner is from Kate Moss collection, I have used a bunch of shades from Kate Moss Lipsticks and Iam quite impressed with their collection so I have extended my interest in to eye liners too. I picked this eye liner mainly for two reasons
- I like trying new stuff
- It claims nearly 24 hours staying power
What Rimmel says?
Up to 24 hour wear
Rich Intense color
The packaging for Rimmel Gel eye liner is cute, it is a mini plastic jar with black screw cap with Rimmel crown logo. It looks pretty decent, light weight, sturdy, non-flimsy and travel friendly.
It comes with a sleek black brush with soft bristles thick at the bottom and thin at the tip. It feels quite smooth too, I wish it was angled though.
Texture & Pigmentation:
The gel eyeliner in the mini cute plastic tub looks soft, smooth and is intensely pigmented. This particular shade 002 Brown has specks of gold shimmer in it which are not OTT and helps in achieving a dramatic look as well as neutral eye. A tiny bit of product goes a long way. It is pretty creamy so it’s important to wait for it to set and dry on the eyes otherwise it gets smudged. However, it dries quickly so that’s not at all an effort.
Once the liner is set, it remains intact without budging and smudging. Even after hours of application, it doesn’t show any signs of flaking or feathering.
It remains on your eyes until you remove it with a good makeup remover, though you rinse or wash your eyes with water, this product still remains intact on your eyes.
I haven’t experienced any irritation or stinging and Iam impressed with this product to the core. It is waterproof and will be perfect for monsoons and works good to attain long-lasting makeup.
