Today I have a little review for you. This morning I was applying my make up and used the Rimmel London Scandaleyes Shadow Stick in a purple shade, for a little definition on my lower lash line. I’ve never tried a shadow stick before so when these came out in Denmark, a couple of weeks ago, I had to pick some up. It was very easy to choose the first colour since I’m a neutrals girl. I picked up 003 Bad Girl Bronze which is a shimmery bronze. Even though I’m a neutrals girl I quite like the idea of a little colour now and then, so I also picked up a coloured one. I love purple, it’s my favourite colour, and since purple benefits brown eyes I had to pick up the colour 006 Paranoid Purple.
The sticks have a creamy consistency and are very buildable. Now, I haven’t tried this, but I in my opinion you can do a smokey eye with just one stick, because of the buildableness. You would apply the shadow all over the lid and blend so it doesn’t have a deep colour and then blend some in, in the crease – a couple of time, so it gets to the darker-smokey stage and lastly apply some on the lower lash line for a night-smokey-eye. Just a little thought, I think would work.
Bad Girl Bronze is great for the whole lid, for smoking out the crease and for a little definition on the under lash line. I primary use this for the whole lid and blend it out for a daytime look. I’m tempted to pick up one more neutral in the colour Bulletproof Beige which is a light, golden beige shimmer. It would be perfect for all over the lid for a light daytime look and to apply in the tear duct area to lighten up the eyes.
Paranoid Purple is a beautiful eggplant shimmery colour. Now, I wouldn’t use this for the whole lid but this is just the neutral girl in me that says no but I LOVE this colour for defining my lower lash line a bit. For other colour full looks for the summer, I’m tempted to pick up Gossip Green and Blamed Blue. Gossip Green is a mossy green colour and Blamed Blue is a bright, shimmery blue. They would be perfect for a beachy colour full summer look.
Over all for this review, you can see that I’m very positive and will probably pick some of the other colours up! 😉
Have you tried these eyeshadow sticks? Which colour did you pick up? Have you tried any other brands, which?
Thanks for reading 🙂 Have a lovely summer day!
