Beauty Editor Review: RIMMEL #scandaleyes Liquid Liner and Mascara

#Scandaleyes Precision Micro Eyeliner

So believe it or not, I had never used a liquid liner until this product came to me. I love a creamy pencil for its ability to smudge and for how easily you can wipe it away and start again when your eyeliner effort goes a little awry. I’m also a fan of the gel eyeliner because it’s so bold and to me, not as scary as going full liquid.

Anyway, I gave it a go. What I love about this eyeliner is that it is so easy to use - perfect for liquid liner beginners. It has a thin tip and you can easily glide it on for a delicate line. The brush thickens out and you can use that part to create a thicker line. This is perfect if you do make a mistake because it allows easy correction which was great for me on those super rushed mornings. It dries quickly which is great.

It’s also really easily removed with micellar water or a cleansing oil, both of which I use.

What I wasn’t so fond of was the colour. Yes it’s black but not a very intense black so I did have to go over the line a few times to get the stand out, bold look I was after. 

I’ll probably go back to my pencils after three months which is when you should throw out liquid or gel liners and mascara. I haven’t been turned off liquid liners, but will probably give a different one a go next time.

#Scandaleyes Reloaded Mascara

I am super picky with my mascaras because the idea of my eyelashes falling out because of a product that dries them out, that clumps causing them to stick together or is so hard to get off that my lashes come out too, is a little scary and far from ideal.

The packaging for this mascara I was given says it will provide extreme volume and wear and is easily removed, just with warm water. That last bit intrigued me.

The mascara coats the lashes well and has quite a big brush that is thick down the bottom and tapers inward at the top. This type of brush helps thicken lashes. After a few coats the lashes are evenly spread and there is not much clumping that needed to be brushed over.

It definitely has a high impact. By the end of the day though, the mascara dried out a little.

I tried removing it with warm water and while it came off, I was left with massive panda eyes so needed to use micellar water anyway. I didn’t try that again.

Before being given this mascara I was using another Rimmel product which I bought myself – wonderful mascara with argan oil. Argan oil is nourishing, conditioning all types of hair so I was thrilled to find out about it. I love it and will probably go back to using it instead, purely because I find it better for my lashes.
