Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Paints–Review & Swatches!

I’ve really been experimenting with different types of textures & formats on my eyes recently (as opposed to plain powder eye shadows) and recently I have been opting for cream & crayon types of products to add a bit of colour to my eyes. 

Enter the new Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Paints… 

rimmel scandaleyes review
rimmel scnaldaeyes
L-R: Mercury Silver, Slate Grey, Rich Russet, Golden Bronze, Maganese Purple.

I’ve already featured the silver shade on my blog in this look of the day here – http://www.katiesbeautyblog.com/2013/06/makeup-of-daysilver-black-liner.html where I used it to add a soft silver line above my usual black liner flick, which added a dazzling flick of colour when I blinked, but I’ve also been using these as an eyeshadow base – patting some onto my eyelids and blending quickly.  You d0 need to work quite swiftly with these as after they dry they do not budge.

In terms of colours – I think they are all stunning but would love to see a champagne gold shade which would look incredible for wearing as a daily base blended out (and highlighter).  My favourite of the shades is Rich Russet as it’s a wearable, neutral taupe-based brown which will look flattering on all skin tones.

These are available now on Rimmel stands for £4.99 each.  A little goes a very long way so these work out to be super affordable.

Are you a fan of cream shadows?  Which is your favourite colour from the above?

    they are so pretty and I imagine they will make some awesome base

    The purple shade is goooooorgeous. I am tempted, though I think I fiddle around with eyeshadow too much and it would end up drying too soon making me look like a panda!

    I picked up Rich Russet and I really like it 🙂 I agree you have to work quite quickly with them.

    They look amazing and so pigmented! I really want to try them but everytime I'm in the drugstore… they're sold out. They must be really great xx

    Rich Russet looks so versatile but I think you the Slate grey could create some great dramatic looks. Might have to investigate these further! Great post 🙂

    I love the first 4 shades, I've honestly never tried cream shadows but after this post I wouldn't be a posed to it!

    I have seen these in store and been very tempted! The shades are lovely but a couple are very similar to my maybelline colour tattoo cream shadows. Thanks for sharing! 🙂


  20. August 27, 2013 / 11:29 pm

    I've been seeing a fair few reviews on these recently and all positive! I'm definitely loving Rimmel at the mo, they've really been pulling it out of the bag. Gonna have to hit up boots asap!

  21. August 28, 2013 / 12:34 am

    The pigmentation is amazing! Love the gold and russet – they are my go to colours, 100% purchasing after seeing this, I would have never thought about them, I love my powders but the colours in these are irresistible! 🙂 x

  22. August 28, 2013 / 12:37 am

    I will definitely be trying rich russet and slate grey, they look gorgeous!


  23. August 28, 2013 / 2:38 am

    Such gorgeous colours! I really love to use eyeshadow crayons, especially from nars and Stila x

  24. August 28, 2013 / 4:36 am

    Which color do you think would look best on tan/olive skin tones? I have trouble finding good eyeshadow combos for my skin tone… 🙁


  25. August 28, 2013 / 7:50 am

    wow, these look so much more pigmented at first swatch than the maybelline color tattoos!! i would love to try rich russet, it's the perfect everyday wearable color!

    I love the purple shade in this, looks intense. Might have to venture out and buy it myself! Really enjoy your posts! I have just written my first ever post for my blog- http://jevariah.blog.com/

    There are some pretty browns. I will definately check them out!

  32. August 28, 2013 / 3:24 pm

    I'm not into cream eyeshadows that much but that is because only own about three and those aren't too good. I would love to try those in any case, especially the purple one looks intriguing!



  33. August 28, 2013 / 8:47 pm

    My fave is rich russet too!

    The purple shade is stunning, this would be beautiful to add into a dark black smokey eye for a pop of colour. These aren't out in Australia yet but I can't wait to get my hands on a couple of them. I agree with you I'd like to see a pinky champagne colour I'd buy it in a heartbeat


  35. August 29, 2013 / 9:15 am

    Wow, I love Maganese Purple.. Going to have to pick it up!
    Thanks for sharing 🙂



  36. August 29, 2013 / 7:03 pm

    The purple cream eyeshadow looks so pretty.. I might just have to purchase it!

  37. August 29, 2013 / 7:40 pm

    These look so good! I love the colours!!

    Great post! Thanks for sharing!:)

    Hugs, Brittany, xx
