Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow sticks comes as a fat chubby sharpenable pencils with a transparent plastic cap just like NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils. I am glad that the cap feels way better & less flimsy than NYX one’s which just cracks over little pressure . These crayons have coloured ends making the shade identification easy. A no fuss , simple & functional packaging.
They have incredibly smooth, soft & creamy texture without being all the way crumbly but they certainly don’t hold that slight stiffness to surpass the application pressure still applies beautifully without any issues. The shades glides effortlessly on the lids & waterline with fabulous pigmentation giving true rich colour in a single go! They set pretty fast so got to work on with them swiftly to avoid any hiccups later. Though there’s not much room for working on with them but they blend & smudge super fast making the application a breeze. They blend/ smudge seamlessly with just about any tool-your blending brush, smudging brush, eye shader or even fingers evenly. And not to forget they excel fantastically in wear department too. I have very dry lids & don’t face creasing issues with most of the formulations. The two shades I am having wears for 10 hours easily on me without any hint of fading after which I did notice slight unevenness at the edges. The only grudge I have is the product wastage during sharpening. As these are very creamy there’s considerable amount of wastage each time you sharpen. Otherwise these are hands down the best eye crayons I have tried till date.
004 GUILT GREY is nice fundamental deep graphite with fine silver micro shimmers. This will create a stunning smokey eye!
009 BLAMED BLUE is a vibrant Turquoise Blue with fine silver micro shimmers adding up for that pearl finish. This is not a shade I would be comfortable sporting alone but becomes much more wearable when weared on top of an intense or darker shade. It’s a very fun & cheerful shade but at the same time little difficult to carry on out skintones, clearly grabbing for attention.
