I’m loving Rimmel products at the moment and recently spotted the Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Sticks/Crayons. There are a few different colours available but as I prefer neutrals or pinks I went for the Beige (the lightest colour) and Bad Girl Bronze.
These are two gorgeous, shimmery colours. The formulation is extremely creamy which makes application very easy, although I have found it can look a little patchy so you need to make sure you get a nice even coverage by applying a little more product to any gaps. This creamy formula also means that they do get messy pretty easily and I can imagine will be very messy when you have to sharpen them (It’s a real shame they don’t twist up).
The staying power of these shadows is great. When I first tried these out I actually forgot to use primer but in the end it wasn’t an issue. These shadows stayed on perfectly all day and evening on their own.. I was super impressed! I do find, however, that this means they don’t blend together that easily.
I also really love the look of them on your eyes. I wore the beige all over my lid and blended a matte brown from my MUA palette into the outer quarter and crease and it looked gorgeous. It really brightened up my eyes and gave me a fresh, shimmery look without being too over the top. I also love the shade of the beige, it’s a light oyster/gold and not too yellow.
Although there are a few down points to this product, overall I do really like these shadow sticks and I can see me using them quite a lot.
The Scandaleyes Shadow Sticks are priced at £3.49 online at Superdrug but are £4.99 in store. They are also a little more expensive at Boots coming in at £5.99.
