NEW Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Eyeshadow Sticks Review & Swatches (6 Shades!)

 photo 9e0233b2-c9d1-4d0b-98bf-9ab0c6a7f74b_zpsf21abc1a.jpgIf you've seen my first review of the 3 Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohls Eyeliners in some basic shades then you know I loved them SO much that I went out & bought a bunch more shades. In this new line & idea, Rimmel has come out with these jumbo eyeshadow pencils & I grabbed up 6 of them. I found these at Walgreens for approximately $5 each.
These pencils are supposed to be waterproof & last for 24 hours. I'm pretty impressed. Although I wish I had some matte/cream options ( I would KILL for the Nude Rimmel Scandal Eyeliner Pencil in a jumbo stick!) these are a wonderful starting point color-wise. I prefer all my jumbo eyeshadow pencils to be long wearing which is why I haven't invested much into NYX shadow bases & why I love the Milani Shadow Eyez. These aren't as thick as the Milani Shadow Eyez but I find them a lot easier to use because they're thinner. They fade a bit around the 6-9 hour mark but not dramatically.

These colors are all beautiful & I honestly think they'd each work on all skintones. Do be aware that they do set so if you want to blend, do it directly after application. These work well as bases but I especially love them under my lower lashline because my watery eyes don't break them down. You will need a good eye makeup remover to get these off!

Witness White: Frosty white. Not as opaque as the others. Better coverage with 2 layers.

Bulletproof Beige: Nude champagne slightly metallic. Nice pigmentation.

Gossip Green: Cool sage green with light sheen. Not as reflective. Great coverage.

Tempting Turquoise: Bright aqua with slight white shimmer. Not as reflective. Good coverage, 2 swipes for opacity.

Bad Girl Bronze: Warm chocolate with warm bronze shimmer. Great coverage.

Guilty Grey: Gunmetal grey with silver shimmer. Great even coverage.

For something bright, the Tempting Turquoise is impressive & the shade reminds me of my first Tarte purchase so long ago. Witness White & Bulletproof Beige both make awesome highlights & bases. I see myself using Bulletproof Beige more just because I totally love this shade & coverage. I love Gossip Green, it is super wearable & perfect for any season. I see myself rocking this a lot this spring. Bad Girl Bronze is the Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze only warmed up & summer perfect. I'm so excited for this shade when it warms up some! For now, awesome liner shade & it makes my blue eyes pop! Guilty Grey is a great gunmetal (a shade I normally prefer to silvers) & makes the perfect base or liner for a smoky eye. Beautiful.

I know you guys have been excited to hear my thoughts on these so I hope you enjoyed the swatches & post! These are great drugstore additions & I honestly think they're a steal for the price. I've spotted them in permanent display slots at Walgreens so you probably don't need to track down any specialty displays! I'd love to hear what you think of the shades, jumbo pencils, & this line overall! Feel free to comment below!
