Good morning lovely readers. I hope you all had a great weekend and did something for. St Patrick's Day. Did you sport some green polish or makeup? I sure did!
I'm sure most of you have heard about the Rimmel London Scandal'Eyes Shadow Sticks that came out a while ago. Personally I was super excited about all of the recent Rimmel London launches, and these were at the top of my 'to-try' list. I have a few shades to show you today.

The three colours I have to show you today are Bad Girl Bronze, Tempting Turquoise, and Blamed Blue. These are kind of a cream shadow, so they are meant to apply smoothing and be able to blend over your lid for all over colour. In my tests they did blend but not entirely smoothly, so be prepared to work a little to get an even blending.

The colours go on very pigmented though, which is always awesome. One streak of these showed up super opaque and you can slightly lighten them by blending out. Blamed Blue kept its colour the most out of the three I was playing with, and Bad Girl Bronze blended out the lightest.
You can see the shimmer in the swatches, which I was really pleased with. These are not the type of shadows that look like they sparkle in the pencil but don't even show up on your skin, they definitely show off the shimmer in real life!
In my swatch photo I have both the original colour and the blended version so you can see the differences. Tempting Turquoise was super bright almost like a neon, which is so fun for Spring.
These shadow sticks will definitely be fun for some all over notice-me colour for the upcoming Spring season. I can definitely see myself wearing these shades all over my lids. I have seen some other people use them as bases for powder shadows but I quite like the colours on their own.
These Rimmel London Scandal'Eyes Shadow Sticks are very pigmented and have a range of 9 pretty colours for Spring. I would suggest you take a look because they really do have a strong colour payoff and aside from Maybelline's Color Tattoo cream shadows I don't find that too often.
These shadows last a long time too, which is awesome as well. I wore them on my eyes and after washing my face at night there was still colour left with both of the blue shades. The bronze came of easiest, but even with my arm swatches it took multiple washes to get the colours to fade away. That isn't great to go to class with lines all over my arm but for a long lasting eye shadow look it is definitely a plus!
Overall I like these and will definitely get some use out of the bold colours on my lids. I love something that is so simple - just swipe it on and you've got a noticeable look for the rest of the day!
