Review & Swatchfest: Rimmel ScandalEyes Eye Shadow Stick in Blamed Blue and Paranoid Purple


Rimmel ScandalEyes Eye Shadow Stick in Blamed Blue and Paranoid Purple

I wasn't over the moon about the first two Rimmel ScandalEyes Shadow Sticks I tried, Witness White and Bad Girl Bronze. They worked well as color bases, but weren't as opaque as other shadow pencils in the drugstore, making them less than ideal as standalone shadows. Still, I knew there were other shades within the line and wanted to give them a shot because there can be, and are almost always are, quality inconsistencies within product lines. This time around, I went for Blamed Blue, a deep, gem-toned turquoise, and Paranoid Purple, a deep, gem-toned grapey purple.

Both shades out-performed Witness White and Bad Girl Bronze by miles! I was shocked to see how pigmented each one was with one swipe. While they are very creamy and smooth when applying, they dry down within 30-45 seconds (giving you plenty of time to work with them) and don't budge once they are down. Set them or don't set them, these pencils don't need a shadow to make them pop or last throughout the day.

For $4.49, these are absolute must-haves from the drugstore! I would still pass on Witness White and Bad Girl Bronze if you are looking for cream shadow-type products, but as color bases they work well. These, on the other hand, are good for it all. I highly recommend them!
