I’m a big fan of makeup. No matter how unmotivated I’m feeling or how unruly my children are being, a little well-appointed color on my face instantly brightens my mood. However, I’m picky about my makeup because I rarely have time for touch-ups later in the day. It has to last through whatever my day holds, or I won’t wear it.
So I was intrigued and excited to try Rimmel London’s 24-hour waterproof Scandal Eyes line. At almost a fourth of the price of my current brand, it was instantly appealing. But could it compare to my expensive brand? I was not disappointed. I got more compliments on my eye makeup than I ever have! The eye liner provided a smudgy, smokey look that lasted all day, while the Rimmel London’s Show-Off mascara gave both volume and length to my skimpy lashes.
The icing on the cake, though, were the Rimmel London’s Glam’Eyes HD eyeshadow quads. These sets of four perfectly-coordinated colors are like having your own personal makeup artist! They come with a picture guide to creating the perfect smokey eye, and I was amazed at how easy it was and how good it looked! The colors layered perfectly on top of each other and looked like a professionally done job. I love the Green Park quad for a more subtle, everyday look and the Purple Reign quad for a more dramatic, night-out look. Needless to say, I’ll be spending less on my eye makeup from now on!
