Rimmel ScandalEyes Eye Shadow Stick Paranoid Purple Review
I loved my first creamy eye shadow stick from Sephora and that tempted me to try another formula and hence I got this Rimmel ScandalEyes Eye Shadow Stick from Nykaa. Let’s checkout how this creamy crayon fared on me, Rimmel ScandalEyes Eye Shadow Stick Paranoid Purple.
Product Claims: High impact colour Precision tip applicator Ultra soft formula glides on smoothly High-shine and luminous finish.
Price: Rs 415 for 3.25 gms
Packaging: Rimmel ScandalEyes Eye Shadow Stick is a chubby eye shadow crayon with a sharpenable wooden pencil packaging. It comes with a see through plastic cap that reveals the shade and also has a color band at the bottom to easily identify the shade. I prefer retractable pencil packaging as they are much easier to use especially in case of chubby crayons.
My Experience with Rimmel ScandalEyes Eye Shadow Stick Paranoid Purple:
Shade: Paranoid purple is a rich purple shade with purple pearly sheen and barely there golden shimmers that adds a hint of metallic shine to the liner. It is on the brighter side of purple but the shade works very well for warm indian skintones and is easy to pull off. It can be used as liner, eye shadow or on lower lash line for a pop of color to the eyes, depending on the look you plan to wear.
Formula: Rimmel ScandalEyes Eye Shadow Stick has a creamy smooth texture that glides easily across lids. It feels soft but isn’t crumbling soft and hence applies evenly. It takes some time to settle to a smudge proof finish so you can blend it easily for a soft smokey look when used as an eye shadow or even a smudged liner look.
Pigmentation: The formula is incredibly pigmented and it gives rich color in a single swipe. It gives absolute opaque color coverage but needs a bit of layering when used as an eye shadow
Staying Power: Rimmel Eye Shadow Crayons are outstandingly long wearing as well. I had a doubt about their wear-ability but they didn’t fail to impress me. It sets to a smudge proof finish within seconds of application and wouldn’t budge hours. I see a slight transfer and creasing after 6-7 hours of wear but it still goes strong for another couple of hours. They can be used over a primer or powder to mattify eyes and reduce transfer enhancing the longevity of the liner
The quality is quite comparable to Sephora Jumbo crayons. Sephora ones are just a tad bit creamier but the color pay off and staying power is similar. There is a difference of almost 50% in the price so, if you don’t plan to spend on Sephora get these Rimmel ScandalEyes shadow sticks and enjoy
