Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner

Hello there my beautifuls.  Firsto of all I want to start off this blog post with a very big huge gigantic Thank you to all of my readers near and far who have been a great support to my from the start and thank you to all of you who have clicked that follow button because I have reached a whopping 1001 Followers today :) :) :) yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee 
Thank you Thank yo Thank you with all of my heart :) 
Ok I am getting a little emotional here so I better crack on to my review before I end up with a wet keyboard and blurred up eyes lol 
Its not often I keep up to date with beauty products meaning When a product is released I like to hold off a while before I buy it to see some reviews on it first but I do now and again like to be one of the first to try a Brand new product especially when its on a new release special offer :) 
Today I bring to you the Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick & Think Eyeliner.  According to Rimmel and I quote:  
3D slanted felt tip liner to draw flawless thick and thin lines!
Unique 3D applicator draws thick and thin lines
Intense colour lasts up to 24 hours
Waterproof and smudge-proof

Well sure that would be a huge dream come true for us all wouldnt it :) :) well read on to find out if their promises are actually true :) 

So lets start with a little about the packaging :)   I actually like the packaging very much its a simple black pen with white writing which stands out very well.  The cap of the pen it very sturdy and clicks shut so you know its well sealed.  Which is always a bonus and great reassurance that the pen will not dry out too quick.  When you take the lid off you can instantly see there is a easy grip area another bonus from Rimmel :) :) The tip is a thick and slanted tip that allows you to apply either a thick or thin line.  

Ok so lets get down to the nitty gritty part and that is I had high expectations for this eyeliner I have to admit.  I love Rimmel product always have and always will as long as they keep going with their brilliant work but I have to admit I was disappointed with this product .  Why was I disappointed? 
  1. Well first of all with the adverts and the picture Rimmel was showing using this eyeliner gave me the impression that this eyeliner was going to be super black retro style.  Well in fact it is not super black nothing like what it shows up on the pictures.  You have to build it up to be as black or set it with a super black eyeshadow.   I have tried all the tricks like holding it tip down for a while and everything but the shade is still the same.  Plus there was a seal on this liner so its not that people were opening it in the store to dry it out.  
  2. I like a bit of firmness in the tips of my eyeliners I have to admit but this tip is beyond that.  It is almost rock hard when using it against the eye so anyone with super sensitive eyes are going to find this uncomfortable while using it.  
  3. The liner comes out patchy so if you are in a super major hurry maybe reach for something else as you need time to draw you line (without patches) with this one 

On a plus note though this liner would be suitable for people who are starting out with eyeliner looks as it isnt jet black and its also good for a precise and buildable line .  It is also suitable for an everyday wear eyeliner as its not the blackest of blacks.  Plus the slant of the tip helps to draw a nice perfect cat eye look.  
Another good thing is that the liner as I noticed with my eyes lasted all day without smudging at all.  Not even a movement.  I do have to admit the moment I went to wash the lines off my hand the liner faded so in theory I do not think that it is waterproof but it is long lasting.   
Unfortunately for me this will not be repurchased but thats not saying you may not like it :)  If you have tried this out let me know as I would love to hear how you got on with it :)   I am really hoping I just got a badden and that there is some of you out there who have one and works great so please let me know :)  You can purchase this eye liner from any pharmacy or drug-store who sell Rimmel :) :)
Until next time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter 

I love love love hearing from you all :) I make it my duty to read each and every one of you comments and every time i get a comment from you it highlights my day thanks so so much to you all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
