Really a Scandal? Rimmel London Scandaleyes Shadow Sticks

_20140116_163944

I’m definitely not a makeup expert. I’m really just beginning to scratch the surface of “beauty land”, but what I love most is eye makeup. My eyes are my “go to feature”. The feature that I love to play up. I love seeing my eyes suddenly brighten or smolder with just a pop of color here, a swipe of shadow there, or a smudge of liner in just the right spot. Of course I was thrilled to see these shadow sticks! I spotted them at Walgreens and they retailed for $4 each. They contain .11 oz. I purchased three of them.

005 Tempting Turquoise: This was really the standout of the trio to me. The color is gorgeous. The application was smooth and it lasted all day. I love wearing it as a liner on my lower lash line, definitely the pop I’m looking for!

003 Bad Girl Bronze: I LOVE bronze, so this was the one that had me the most excited. The color is beautiful. In light, it has beautiful golden flecks throughout, but not huge chunks, very subtle. It lasted too, but it seemed softer to me than the others. On my first application the whole tip of it broke off. I couldn’t believe it. It wasn’t a huge deal breaker though. I just make sure to use a light hand when I use it. I like this best applied to the lid and sligthly smudged out.

002 Bulletproof Beige: So pretty, so soft. My inner corner color of choice. Champagne at it’s finest. Subtle shimmer and a soft sheen. My only negative with this one is that every once in a while the application can look at little streaky. Nothing a little smudging can’t fix though. I use this almost daily!

The Truth: These things are pretty awesome. I saw a few more colors, and I plan on purchasing some of those too. It’s smooth and creamy, lasted all day, AND waterproof! I plan on testing out that Tempting Turquoise at the water park this summer! The price was great, the product was great…WIN!
