Hello everyone 😀
I can’t believe that summer is almost here! I hate summers – in every possible way, except for the fact that I looovee Mangoes! 😛
Okay, so coming to today’s review, it’s another Eyeshadow/crayon from Rimmel! My dark Smokey eye shadow hunt seems to be never ending 😉 I have been using the Rimmel Scandal eyes 003Blackmail (I reviewed it few days back) which is a winner, so I decided to buy another one and this time it’s a bronze color- 003 Bad girl bronze ( I just love the name :P). I actually forced my boyfriend to travel to another far place with me in this sultry heat just because I had to buy this single product! 😛 and I must say that the product is a worth try!
Read on for the details..

My experience with Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Eyeshadow Stick Bad Bronze
My eyelids are pigmented so bright color never suits me. I only got the option of using bronzes, dark blue and blacks. For a long time, I was actually searching for some good creamy long lasting bronze color. Previously I bought that Maybelline color tattoo but it turned out to be a complete dud for me :’( So, I thought of giving this a try. The color is a beautiful dark bronze (superb if you are creating black-brown Smokey eyes) with very fine golden and orange shimmer particles. Though I hate shimmers but these fine shimmers are not at all messy around eyes and actually making the color come out even more beautifully, to my surprise! I actually tried hiding the shimmers by patting some dark brown/taupe matte Eyeshadow – I must say that it looked classy as well. As I said, my eyelids are pigmented but even then the color is perfectly visible.
Pigmentation (which actually makes the product stand out) which is very much similar to the shade Blackmail – .There’s a soft smell of crayons which I personally love the most 😀 It doesn’t feel heavy on the eyes at all.The crayon glides like butter on the eyelids which is super-impressive and if the color is deliberately smudged, it settles down with a matte look. I actually took a bath deliberately with the eyeshadow on and amazingly the face wash couldn’t remove it! The lasting power is around 4-5hrs (without primer) and around 6-7hrs (with primer) and it fades away leaving the fine shimmers. Sharpening does cause a bit of wastage but that can be counted as minimal. Removing the color isn’t troublesome at all which easily comes out with eye makeup remover though the shimmers create a bit of a problem.

1. A perfect dark bronze color with fine shimmer.
2. Great color payoff.
3. Glides smoothly like butter and doesn’t crease at all.
4. Smudge free and completely waterproof.

Cons of Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Eyeshadow Stick Bad Bronze
1. After removing the color, it’s difficult to remove the leftover shimmers.
2. Availability of the product is an issue, through it can be easily bought online.
3. Though it claims to be super long lasting, it isn’t.
Will I recommend/repurchase Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Eyeshadow Stick Bad Bronze?
I totally recommend this one as it’s an amazing product in terms of quality. I am definitely going to repurchase this particular color as I was exactly looking for this. Moreover, I feel they might hike the price so it’s better I put an extra one my stock 😛
