Rimmel Scandal Eyes Kohl Pencils

Hello, lovelies! I realize the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Kohl Liner in Nude is quite popular and has been reviewed numerous times, but I wanted to review two other colors (Light Blue and Deep Blue) and compare Nude to my only other nude eyeliner (MAC Chromagraphic Pencil in NC15/NW20). I do think these eyeliners are quite good and they're very affordable. From the drugstore I really liked the Milani Liquif'eye Eyeliners and the L'Oreal Extra Intense Eyeliner, but these are better and cheaper! 
Texture
These pencils are quite creamy. Some of the creamiest I've found at the drugstore so they are quite easy to work with. The only one that was a touch drier was Deep Blue.
Formula
They are actually quite water resistant once they set. All of them are very pigmented and long lasting. They don't smudge badly on the waterline either. The only negative I found is that once I opened them they stiffened a little and the tip broke off Light Blue and Deep Blue after the second use.
Overall
These are really good eyeliners for the price (and in general, really). I think the standout color for me is Light Blue because it's very unique. Most brands don't have this kind of color in their eyeliner collection.

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Nude vs. MAC Chromagraphic NC15/NW20
I'll say right away that I prefer MAC's NC15/NW20. I think both eyeliners are creamy, pigmented, and brighten your eyes when worn on the waterline. However, NC15/NW20 wears a bit better on my waterline. I have to reapply Nude more often. That isn't the deal breaker for me since the Rimmel pencil is less than half the price. What makes me prefer NC15/NW20 is the color. As you can see from the swatch, it's more yellow/neutral than Nude. Nude looks quite peach when you swatch them side-by-side. It's not a big deal, but I think that NC15/NW20 looks more natural for my skintone.

  2. I bought a nude/champagne liner in I Get No Kick from MAC a couple of years ago and there is no colour payoff so I'd love to get the nude one from Rimmel x

  4. The nude liner looks too dark for my skintone in my waterline! I really want to get deep blue though :)

    1. I remember you saying that before and I definitely see it being too orange or dark on some people. I think NC15/NW20 would be quite nice on you though xx

  14. Coco, oh cool thank you for this review! i need a liner that isnt going to smudge and i also need it to set. i just tried a bunch of glimmersticks liners from avon and i bought a turquoise color and a nude color and omg they sucked! like no pigment whatsoever. just crap. this might be a sign. the nude one i bought looked like that color from rimmel. if it would show up a little better! i did the review on those glimmersticks liners if you wanna check them out. the lip liners were good though. i might have to buy the nude and light blue from rimmel. the dark blue reminds me of the one from physicians formula or the one from mally and i have both so i shouldnt buy the one from rimmel. although dont hold me to it! haha

  16. I've been meaning to pick up the nude one for a while because I don't want to spend so much on one MAC one. great review and pictures as always, the products always look so clear.
    I like the dark blue shade, pretty.

  17. You're eyeliner always looks so fantastic. Which black eyeliner do you use?
    The nude seems like a good, and cheaper, alternative to the mac one so I'll be checking it out.

  19. Oooo I love the look you created with the deep blue winged liner and nude liner in your waterline!! Looks really really gorgeous :) And I'm glad to hear an all around review of these pencils; all I ever hear is how outstanding they are so it's good to hear the minuses as well <3

  20. I'm so glad you've done a review on these, because although I have the one in the shade Nude, I bought it whilst it was on promotion and so I didn't look at the other colours. But they look gorgeous!

  30. Ooh, love these shades of blue for spring and summer! And thanks for the helpful comparison of the nude pencils. These two- along with NARS Rue Bonneparte and Illamasqua Vow- have been piquing my interest lately :)

  31. I agree - the Rimmel nude is great because there is a drugstore option out there but I prefer my NARS eyeliner in Rue Bonaparte because the Rimmel one is darker and peachier.

  35. Deep Blue looks great on brown eyes. I am going to have to grab one next time I am browsing in the drug store. Rimmel has some great products. Rimmel's Epic is my favorite lip liner.

  39. I want the nude eyeliner so badly but I can never find it.. and it's always sold out online haha... I don't think the downside of needing to reapply more compares to the price difference! xx
