Rimmel Scandal'Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner swatches and review

If you follow me on Instagram (you do! Of course you do! *puppy dog eyes paired with sadface*) you may have seen evidence of my latest obsession - bright eyeliner. I've been using Rimmel's recently released Scandal'Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliners both on top (normal for me) and under (unexplored territory) the eye to add a pop of colour to an otherwise boring look. And I have to admit, I'm addicted! It takes zero prep work, and looks so striking.



These new Scandal'Eyes eyeliners come in 15 different colours and claim to be resistant to heat, water and sweat for up to 10 hours. I was initially sceptical about the staying time, but surprisingly it actually delivers, even on my oily skin! And as a bonus, it glides on like butter, and even a novice like me can get very precise application.

Here are a couple of looks I tried - these photos were both taken about 6 hours after application, and pretty much look like they did when I first put them on, on warm (but not sweltering) summer days.


Under eye Purple - I was trying to go for "fierce" but as usual, I think I just ended up with "cute".



Turquoise above the eye and Golden under the eye - great eye colour look for summer! I love how the Turquoise goes with my brown eyes.

Swatches:


 L to R: Sparkling Black, Brown, Deep Blue, Golden, Nude, Light Blue, Turquoise, Bright Blue, Purple, Green.

Verdict: These are the best drugstore eyeliners I've ever tried.I'm definitely going to have to pick up the Orange as well. My favourite is the Turquoise, because it's so good for summer, but the matte colours are great all-rounders, especially given their remarkable staying power.


Rimmel Scandal'Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner retail for $9.95 and are available now at the usual Rimmel stockists (Kmart, Priceline, Target, Big W etc.).

    1. Thanks Mel! I think it will be a pretty frequent summer look for me this year, since it's pretty much the only thing that won't melt off my face :)

  4. I have taken to lining my eyes with eyeshadow. I have sooo many eyeshadow colors that I can't justify buying a bunch of different pencils. I do have a few eyeliners, but not many.

    1. I've tried that, but I think my skin is just too oily for it - it transfers so quickly and my eyes become a mess! I'm incredibly impressed with these mainly for the complete lack of transfer :)

  5. These are gorgeous! I'm definitely going to get nude for my waterline as I find that using pure white is just a little too much and I might just have to pick up that sparkling black too....

    1. I've always been a bit skeptical of the whole white waterline thing, but using the nude for that is a great idea! I'll have to try it out soon.
