Mini Review ; Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick and Thin Liner

Oh Rimmel, you were my best friend back in the days of the first eyeliners, teenage discos and (cringe) cargo pants with strings.....


then you brought out the liquid, and the "professional" liquid, and it was true love in Jet Black, through thick and thin!

Now, you have the new "Scandaleyes Think and Thin" eyeliner, a felt pen, stating water-proof and smudge-proof abilities, with concentrated pigments and all the rest of the empty promises.

I was so disappointed with this eyeliner at first, let me explain the three major faults first then the one redeeming factor :(

1. The colour was not at all concentrated, it was more like a charcoal grey than black, a big no no for eyeliner.

2. Any primary child will tell you that a felt tip is useless when wet, therefore the minute it touches your watery eye, it loses all black magic, and nothing comes out until you rub it to dry it.

3. The tip of the felt was an angled one, sounds swell, until you realise the tip is dried out, or there are clumps of product on it, effectively ruining you beautiful concealer and great great blobs and or spaces, reminiscent of A Clockwork Orange!

Ok, so there are the negative points, and they are big ones, why would you bother buying this product if it's this bad?

The one feature of the eyeliner, is the fact that you can use it on un-mascara-ed peepers to create a look of no make-up literally. Just push the felt tip into the upper lash line, because it is very light and there's not a lot of gloopy product on a brush, it does boost the lash line, without the obvious line black line on top of the lashes. BUT how many times are you really going to use this, a good eye pencil could do this for you.....

Sooooo, I would pass this over, a no go with F.A.S.H., and it's not your gona be your BFF through thick and thin :(

Le GrĂ¡,
