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!
I don’t know about you guys but I think that Rimmel London is killing it with their products right now! I love their blushes, The Apocalips, The Wake Me Up concealer and foundation and these 2 eye products:
RIMMEL LONDON Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara: The product details you get, from Rimmel London, when you buy it says:
Our first ultra lengthening mascara that defies the laws of lash length Length that defies limits. Formula with micro-fibres-instant wow: Extends lashes by up to 99 %. Lash catching brush grabs every lash for perfect separation. No clumps!
A couple of weeks ago, when I was in the middle of getting ready for my grandparents’ 50 years wedding anniversary, my mom walked in and said: “Honey, which mascara are you using? Your lashes look so long and full. May I borrow it?” I just thought: Yes, yes, yes, it works! And she could of course borrow it 😉
To be honest, I wasn’t that impressed by the product at first, but I think it is a product that you have to use a couple of times before you get use to it. For me, it had to dry fast out a bit before I liked it and the formula had to be worked into the lashes before you see the result.
Now, I can’t live without it. The wand is different from what I usually like. I usually go for the BIG wands. But I love that it is thinner in the end, so it catches all of the small lashes.
I don’t know if it’s just something that I imagine but I feel that my lashes have grown a bit since I started using it. What can I say, I just really like this mascara.
RIMMEL LONDON Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner: The product info for these is:
Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner gives instant colour impact with it’s high intensity pigments. The ultra smooth & creamy formula glides on easily and doesn’t budget. Smudge-proof and waterproof.
When I ordered the mascara on ASOS, I was in need of some new eyeliners so bought these. It was just an impulse buy but I’m glad I did it. These are really soft but when applied they dry fast so the don’t smudge. I use the black on the upper lash line to define the eyes and the nude on the lower lash line to open up the eyes.
They are cheap, superb easy to work with and they don’t smudge! It comes in 7 different colours. I really want to try the other colours too – the Brightblue, Bronze and Deep Purple looks so nice. Take a peek here if you want to see the different colours.
All in all, I’m really impressed with these two products and I would definitely recommend them to you guys! In general, I’m really happy with Rimmel products right now!
Have you tried any of the products? What did you think? And what are your favourite products from Rimmel London right now? Let me know in the comments beelooow!
Have a nice sunny Saturday! <3

I’ve been following the Pixiwoo Sisters for a looong time now, and I’ve always loved their videos. So, of course, I wanted to try these brushes by Sam Chapman (One of the sisters)
Easter came, and so did pay day. I quickly went on Look Fantastic to look and buy some brushes. One of the things I love about this site is the Free Worldwide Delivery and you get a little sample with your parcel, YES!
Let’s get going with my first impression.
REAL TECHNIQUES – Core Collection £20: You get 4 brushes as seen on the pictures and listed below and the quality of the brushes is amazing. They are really soft and seem easy to work with. Plus, I adore the design.
I decided to buy The Core Collection because of the Buffing- and Detailer Brush. I want to use the buffing brush to apply my liquid foundation as I feel that it will work the foundation flawlessly into the skin. I want to use the Detailer Brush for applying lipstick, as I need a good lip brush.
Contour Brush: Delicately applies highlighter to contour or create sheer, soft-focus finish.
Pointed Foundation Brush: Use with liquid foundation to build costum coverage.
Detailer Brush: Precision cut to effortlessly conceal problem areas; or, use with lipstick for long-lasting shape and definition.
Buffing Brush: Ideal for full coverage application of powder and mineral foundation.
I love that Real Techniques have made three brush sets, that comes with a Panoramic Case which can be used as both a brush-case-bag and as a stand, see picture 4, 6 and 7. These cases also have extra room for other brushes, as you can se on picture 5, and since you can buy single RT brushes, there will be perfect room to put them there. Plus, the extra room is perfect for other brushes too 😉
OVERALL, my first impression is really great and I’m definitely going to do a review when I’ve tried them out!
Have you tried any of the Real Techniques brushes? What did you think? What are some of your favourite brushes? Let me now in the comments below 🙂
Have a nice day
