Today I have an interesting product to share with all of you. When Maybelline first launched the color tattoos in India I was so excited that I picked up five shades together and ever since then have been a fan of cream eye shadows, but when you have a cream eye shadow in a convenient stick form then it is even better.
About Rimmel Scandaleyes Eye Shadow Stick:
Rich, intense color applies in a flash, Jumbo applicator creates a dramatic look in just one stroke, Can use as an eye shadow or an eyeliner. Creamy formula blends effortlessly for a luminous finish. Waterproof & Smudge. With 24 hr wear. Dermatologist & ophthalmologist tested
Price: INR 415 for 3.25g.
Packaging: The shadow stick comes in a sharpenable black jumbo pencil or a crayon form, the bottom of the stick is color coded and has a transparent cap attached. I am not really a fan of the packaging and would have preferred a twist up version since there is product wastage while sharpening due to creamy texture.
My take on Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Stick 003 Bad Girl Bronze:
Rimmel has some 15 shades in the range but I doubt if all of them are available here, otherwise the shade selection is really impressive.
The shade Bad girl bronze is a pretty and wearable neutral shade of bronze with fine gold shimmers. I would not call it a true bronze since it looks more like a coppery bronze to me but nevertheless is a must have shade. I love bronze eye shadows since they go with mostly all looks and outfits and are really easy to wear, and absolutely adore this slightly different shade of bronze. The color is dark enough and would show up nicely on all skin tones. The shimmer in it is just right and not over the top. I love pairing it with some black eyeliner and smudge it out to create a quick and effortless Smokey eye.
The stick glides on eyes very smoothly due to the creamy texture and blends like a dream but blending has to be done quickly since it tends to set to a smudge proof finish within a minute. Being a cream product I have used it under powder eye shadows as well and it makes a good base.
At first I was really impressed with the pigmentation, since one stroke delivers quite good color payoff but when blended it sheers out considerably and hence it needs to be layered until one gets desired intensity. I generally apply it and blend t out quickly and then go over with another layer.
It stays put for about 6 hours on my slightly oily eyelids alone, over a primer it stays for a little longer and when teamed up with powder eye shadows my shadows do not crease for 8-10 hours. But I am definitely disappointed since I do not expect it to last for 24 hours anyways as claimed but it does not even last near 10 hours on its own! Otherwise it’s quite a decent product for the affordable price convenience of use. Removal part is pretty easy but I do notice few shimmers left behind and I have to go over to makeup sure everything is off, which can be messy for some.
What I like about Rimmel Scandaleyes Eye Shadow Stick 003 Bad Girl Bronze:
- Very easy to use and convenient product
- Smooth and creamy texture which blends easily
- Nicely pigmented
- Versatile and flattering shade
- Sets to a smudge proof finish
What I don’t like about Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Stick 003 Bad Girl Bronze:
- Staying power is not up to the claims
- Sheers out considerably on blending
- Packaging could have been better to avoid wastage
- Shimmer are left behind after removing the shadow
