Rimmel ScandalEYES Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner (Light Blue, Nude, Taupe) - Review + Swatches

Rimmel ScandalEYES Waterproof Kohl Eyeliners - Taupe, Nude, Light Blue

What's not to love about Rimmel's ScandalEYES Waterproof Kohl Eyeliners?  They're smooth, pigmented, and stay locked in place all day!  I think these are some of the best eyeliners you can pick up at your local Target or CVS; to me, they are comparable to MAC Pearlglide liners, which cost about three times more.  These are truly scandalous - a scandalous bargain, that is - at $4.49 each!

Rimmel ScandalEYES Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner - Taupe, Nude, Light Blue

Rimmel was one of the first drugstore brands to carry a neutral pinky-beige ("Nude") liner, which is fantastic for brightening your eyes when applied to the inner corners and waterline.

Taupe is a lovely color that works well on my skin to emphasize my lashline in a more soft and subtle way than a true brown liner.

Light Blue is going to be huge!  I've already seen this color listed in numerous fashion mags being touted as the "new nude" eyeliner.  The white-based pale blue really does make your eyes look more clear and awake when used on the waterline, and the color is supposed to be flattering across all skin tones.

I'm a big fan of Rimmel liners; I still have my white Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal pencil that I bought nearly 6 years ago!  You can pick up a few colors to add to your spring makeup bag without draining your rainy day fund.

    1. Yes, you would love the Taupe! Even though you inspired the baby blue liner purchase, for some reason I thought of you when I picked up the Taupe! So weird! Thank you about the logo! My mom made it for me! She is a talented peach of a mom!

  3. I really can't wait to try these! It's weird because Rimmel is UK-based and theoretically we shouldn't get new stuff so much later, but apparently that's what's happening! I've heard GREAT things about these liners, and I'd love to try! Glad to hear they stay in place all day!
