Rimmel Scandaleyes Precision Micro Eyeliner Review

Product Purchased by IMBB

Hello Pretty Damsels!

This is yet another product that I purchased as a part of my IMBB sponsored haul. Although, I am thankful to IMBB for this opportunity, I am not so thankful to Rimmel for this product. I love this brand’s eye products, but this one was like ‘what were you thinking’ kind. Keep reading to know that why it was a dud for me.

My Take on Rimmel Scandaleyes Precision Micro Eyeliner:

This is the third felt tip eye liner that I have ever used. The first one was Maybelline The Colossal Liner and I had a good experience with it. The second was Jordana Black Fabu Liner Liquid Eyeliner and it was horrible. Now, this is third one and even though it is not as horrible but it does not perform as well either.

It is like a marker pen, the kind we use on white boards with a felt tip but the tip is not that broad and is rather pointy to give a precise line. However, it has to be used in upright position to get a precise thin line but unfortunately this does not work in that position and have to bend it sideways to get color pay off.

Black but is not blackest black.

First of all, it would not work if one uses it upright like a pen. It has to be used horizontal to dispense some product. Second, it is not opaque as one sweep gives a translucent black color. One would require multiple sweeps to get the desired color and we all know multiple sweeps are not advisable for a liquid liner, since it shifts the product around.

Shimmer and Shine:
No shimmer and shine. It gives a matte finish.

Wear Time:
This product is not water proof, not even a little bit. It is not smudge proof either but not so blatantly like the former con. It bleeds and feathers as soon as it is applied and does not give a nice finish, which is very obvious on close inspection and ruins the entire look. I would neither use this eyeliner for a classier look nor if I had to use it solo, without eye shadow.

This product has an average review online and I do not now know why. It is not a pricey product but if it did not bite my pocket, it did manage to bite me quality wise and disappointed me. Rimmel has a bunch of different kinds of felt tip eye liner and in future, I would refrain from buying such liners from this brand.

  1. Such an ordinary product from such a big company. I have no idea why products are launched without quality testing or reviewers. I feel bloggers should be hired before they launch these, at the testing phase. THey would save the company a lot of money before they release crap on the street
