Review, Swatchfest, & Comparison: Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black

Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner

Ever since I initially tried the Revlon ColorStay Creme Gel Eyeliner, I've seen similarly packaged liners pop up both in the drugstores and high end brands like Laura GellerRimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner in Blackest Black is similarly packaged but is about $3 less than Revlon's. While the gap in cost isn't huge, that $3 could buy a lipstick from the likes of Wet n Wild, so I thought it might be worth it to try it out and compare the two!

Rimmel's liner boasts a waterproof formula and to make its point, the packaging says it lasts not 24, but 25 hours! It glides on smoothly, opaquely, and has a slightly glossy finish at first. After about a minute, the finish turns to a matte one and the liner is set for the day. Seriously - even on my watery eye it didn't budge. While I'm not crazy about the brush applicator it comes with, it will definitely do in a pinch. Just make sure you wipe it off before placing it back in the gnome cap and don't forget to clean it with brush cleaner about once a week if you use it regularly. 

While it seemed like it would be completely different in texture to Revlon's Creme Gel Liner, Rimmel's ScandalEyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner is comparable both in packaging and wear time. In fact, after a full day, I noticed Rimmel's staying more bold and opaque than Revlon's. I also liked how wide the opening to Rimmel's liner was in comparison to Revlon's - it makes it easier to get product out with a brush. Overall, Rimmel's liner functions just as well as Revlon's and is $3 cheaper. As long as you don't mind that it takes about a minute to fully dry, there is no reason not to go for it!
