Hey all beauty geeks!!!
Pencil liners have always been my go-to liners for a quick eye makeup. Though I prefer liquid and gel eyeliners for a more dramatic eye look, however, I can be clumsy while using them. So, my fool-proof way of getting my eyes done is a pencil eye-liner. Because of this, I have collected numerous eye liners in various shades. Blues and browns have always been my preferred colors on the eyes.
Today I will be reviewing one of my favorites – Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Deep Blue.

My take on Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Deep Blue:
Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliners are raved about in beauty world and some even compare them to Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliners. I have two shades – Brown and Deep Blue. I picked up Deep Blue hoping that it may be a cobalt blue. But nope I was wrong (obviously) Deep blue is a dull navy blue shade. It has a slight greyish cast to it. Which I did not like at first. But then, after using it a couple of times, it became my preferred blue.
It is also good as a rich base for a blue smokey eye. The dull and grey tone of the liner helps in building up the smokey tone of the eye look. The eyeliner can also be used on the waterline. I generally do not prefer dark colors on my waterline, as they close my already small eyes. However, for the purpose of testing, it fares ok on my waterline. I have the ‘wateriest’ waterline in the world. So, ok on my waterline is indeed a good performance girls!!!
Texture: The texture is smooth and not too creamy or too hard. It glides on easily on the lids. It is, however, difficult to smudge the eyeliner once it is set and it does set quickly. I would not refer it for smudging purposes.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation is decent. One swipe gives enough color. However, since the color is dull, it might not look intense in one swipe.
Staying Power: Amazing staying power. Stays for an entire day without smudging on my oily lids. Generally, I would always see eyeliners smudged on my entire lid within 5-6 hours. But this stayed for more than 10 hours, including 5-6 hours of walking (while shopping) in sun.
Packaging: The eyeliner comes packaged as a pencil with a transparent plastic cap. You need to sharpen the pencil once the tip gets blunt, which obviously wastes the product.
What I like about Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Deep Blue:
- Strong rich color.
- Matte finish.
- Easy and smooth application.
- Sets quickly.
- Good as a base for powder eyeshadows.
- Long staying power.
- No irritation to the eyes.
- Lot of shades available.
- No animal testing.
What I do not like about Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Deep Blue:
- Dull, non-vibrant color.
- Difficult to remove as its water-proof.
- Sharpening tends to waste a lot of product.
- Does not stay for long on my waterline.
Final Impression: Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Deep Blue is a very affordable and excellent alternative to expensive eyeliners. I love the ease of application and not worrying about checking the eyeliner an entire day. Perfect for busy and hot days. Recommended if you are looking for the exact shade of blue!!!
