Causing a Scandal with Rimmel London Cosmetics

Happy Monday!

Yeah, I’m dragging today too but what talking about makeup always puts me in a good mood (that and a good cup of coffee!)  Today, I’m having fun reviewing products from Rimmel London, most notably their ScandalEyes collection.  I know you’ve seen all the commercials and their products in the cosmetics aisle that you stalk every time you go into the drug store (or is that just me?) I was very curious to see if these products lived up to the hype and could be added to my list of drug store favorites

Look #1: Purple Reign

Purple Eyeshadow

I loved how the colors in this palette created a soft beauty look while making a statement at the same time.  While the packaging is super cute, it’s not practical.  Getting the highlighting shadow is easy (the big cross of color in the middle).  Getting to the other ones however are more difficult unless you have a thin brush (and then it takes longer to get the shadow on.) The liner glides on smooth and has great depth of color.  I could’ve used the same liner in purple for an even bigger effect (next time for sure!)  The mascara gives great volume sans clumping and using the tip of it made my lashes even longer.

Look #2:  Gossip Green

Green Eyeshadow

Back on the bold eye color train with this look, using the Eye Shadow Stick in Gossip Green.  It glides on super smooth and the depth of color is great!  The black liner and mascara made my eyes pop even more.  Big thumbs up for this one!

Look #3:  Blackmail

Retro Glam

I wanted to see if the eyeshadow stick could double as an eyeliner and I was pleasantly surprised!  It gave me the thick, winged eyeliner look I was going for with just a swipe.  The mascara gave me the volume and a red lip was all I needed to complete my retro glam look.

You can probably tell I had a lot of fun test driving some of Rimmel’s products!  They did what they promised, gave me an assortment of looks I could create with just a few products, and delivered on the color I’m always looking for.

Have you tried Rimmel’s ScandalEyes collection?  What did you think?
