Rimmel Scandaleyes Eye Shadow Crayon in 001 Witness White: Swatches & Review
Eye shadow crayon/sticks make our life easier because you just need to dab the color directly on your lids when in a hurry! No brushes needed and hence I love to have some of those in my stash
Rimmel Scandaleyes eye shadow crayons/sticks were launched on nykaa.com and slassy.com last year. I wanted to pick 003 Bad Girl Bronze, because I love warm neutral bronze shades on eyes for everyday makeup. Alas! I could not grab my hands on this as it was OOS everywhere. So, I went forward and bought a white shadow stick for highlighting inner corners and brow-bone.
Rimmel says – “Rimmel London Scandaleyes Eye Shadow Stick is a high Impact Colour Shadow Stick that applies in a flash. Precision tip applicator and ultra-soft formula glides on smoothly and won’t tug or pull lids for a subtle or intense look.”
001 Witness White – Milky white shade with pearl finish. Its not too shimmery, just perfect enough to enhance your brow bone and inner corners. It contains subtle, fine shimmers that do not fall-out but deposits evenly on lids.
Packaging – Rimmel Scandaleyes Eye-shadow sticks come in pencil form with a transparent cap and colored ends, that makes it easy to identify shades if you more than one. You need to sharpen the crayon, which means product wastage for which I generally prefer twist up pencils.
Texture – The texture is very soft and creamy and glides on easily without tugging. They tend to break, if you apply pressure while applying color on your lid. Earlier, I have used Lakme Absolute Shadow Sticks and if you compare Rimmel to Lakme ones, you would know that these have amazing pigmentation and although shimmery they have less fall-outs compared to Lakme. They deliver rich color pay-off in just a single swipe. They are fairly easy to blend with your fingers, as they don’t dry up quickly. They don’t tend to get patchy or uneven when blended.
Staying Power – They set into a smudge-proof finish after about 3-4 minutes of application, after which they don’t smudge off for the next 7-8 hours. Layering powder eye-shadow on top of this extends the wear time by 2-3 hours.
