Rimmel London Scandaleyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner Review

After trying the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner for a while now I decided to make a review about it. The eyeliner is housed in a little plastic pot with a screw open cap and has the Rimmel crown logo on the top of it. The outer cardboard box has all the basic product details on it and contains, besides the eyeliner, a small eyeliner brush that has rounded, tapered bristles. The included brush is decent for a "free" brush and can come in handy if you are a beginner and do not have one of your own.

Onto the liner itself, first of all let me tell you – this stuff is SUPER black. It even delivers an intense black color with just one single stroke. I wasn’t expecting it to be quite so pigmented and it is one of the blackest gel eyeliners that I have used. It doesn't dry to a lighter shade of black - which I've found can happen with some liners - and I also like the fact that it doesn't move when applying lashes because the glue can sometimes affect the liner.

It claims to be waterproof so I decided to swatch some on my arm, wait a while for it to "set", and then keep it on whilst I took a shower and washed my hair. I’m happy to say it survived two trips without budging at all, once this stuff sets it really is there for the whole day! I would honestly expect these kind of results from a much higher end brand, so for a drugstore brand I’m really impressed. The Scandaleyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner comes in four different shades (black, brown, green and purple), contains 2.4g of product and is available online and in stores.

Pros of Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner:
* Travel friendly packaging

Cons of Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner:
