Hi, beauties! Happy Friday! I’ve been totally loving cream eyeshadow pencils during the month of March. I’ve also been extremely impressed with Rimmel’s new product releases. I previously posted a review of Rimmel’s Scandal Eyes Eyeshadow Stick in Blackmail. Today I’m reviewing the shade Blamed Blue. Here are my thoughts on this product:
Color and Pigmentation
Blamed Blue is a gorgeous metallic navy. It looks like a mermaid blue to me. These are the kind of blue shades I like to wear. I find that frosty blues (like aqua colors) don’t look good on me. Blamed Blue is pigmented but it sheers out when you blend it.
Formula and Longevity
Blamed Blue is creamy, easy to blend, and lasts long. Now, just like Blackmail, Blamed Blue looks patchy on the eyes. It’s not that easy to get it to look even (see image above). This is why I feel like the Scandal Eyes Eyeshadow Sticks work best as eyeshadow bases (like the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencils) but they aren’t something I would wear alone as an eyeshadow (as opposed to the Milani Shadow Eyez which work amazing on their own.)
Blamed Blue works well as a base. It transforms any color you put over it and extends its wear time. However, it doesn’t work well enough on its own so I wouldn’t use it as an eyeshadow. It’s still a good quality versatile product at an affordable price.
