Rimmel London Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer Review & Swatches


When Rimmel was not in India yet, one of my friends had gone to UK. Not surprisingly I asked her to bring a lot of cosmetics of any nice brand from the UK, she brought me No.7 and Rimmel London’s products. This is one of the best things she got for me. The shade name is “220 Perfect Plum”, a no nonsense plum shade and the pencil delivers a good quality too.

Now that Rimmel London is available in India too, this review might help you in case you are interested in buying their eye pencils.

Price: Mine was a gift, but I checked it online that it costs 315 INR.

Packaging: I like that they have provided a smudger at the other end of the pencil. This comes in a twist up pencil which is good as I do not need a sharpener for this and also this avoids any wastage of the product.

Shade: As I told you, the name aptly defines this pencil’s shade. This is a Plum shade. This is a good color to wear to work too; I use this whenever I get bored of the old Black/ Brown liners. This comes out as a muted Plum shade which does not scream for attention, looking good at the same time. The shade is not glittery.

Pigmentation: This pencil is well pigmented. Two swipes back and forth and done.

Texture: I may not say that this pencil is super smooth. It has a good solid texture but not does tug the lids. It goes on smoothly on lids. One good thing about the texture is that since these pencils are not overly smooth, this does not smudge at all. Perfect for office goers.

Lasting power: This stays put as long as I want it to, literally. This can be easily removed by a makeup remover, but till then this does not budge.

What I like about Rimmel London Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer:-

  • The shade is a beautiful and understated Plum shade
  • Does not smudge after it is set

What I don’t like about Rimmel London Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer:-

  • I cannot think of any but if you like super smooth liner, you may not like its texture. It is all about personal preference though.

To conclude this review, I would just say that if you are looking for long-lasting eye pencils, you might give these a try. I have got a lot many eye pencils in my stash, but when I will have to buy new ones, I am definitely going to check out the shade range of these.

Will I recommend: Yes. But if you do not like eye pencils which are not super smooth, you might not like these. Might is the keyword here.
