Today I want to talk about a product that I have been using since I was twelve, when I first started venturing into the world of makeup (young? I'm not sure.). To be honest, 12 year old me was very unsure of herself and just wanted to be a grown-up.. ASAP. I was inspired by Audrey Hephurn's girlish style and wanted her adorable innocent looking winged eyes..

I researched all the brands and decided on the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Precision Micro Eyeliner. I really wanted something that was easy to use and did the job. I also wanted the final effect to be thin and delicate so I opted for the tiny thin nib.
First of all, this eyeliner is really easy to use, so amazing for novices. But I feel like you've always got to approach eyeliner with lots practice anyway and confidence. In the words of Essie Button :
Don't get scared when using eyeliner, it can sense the fear.
But seriously though, this eyeliner is so simple to use... but it only lasts for about 4 hours before it really starts to look faded and, to be honest, a bit crap.It claims to be waterproof but I don't see that reflected in its actual day-to-day wear.
Also, it really doesn't last that long in terms of the amount of product in the tube. I love these so I keep repurchasing because they are so easy to use, but I go through them like nothing else,buying a new one every month or two- an expensive addiction even for drugstore makeup. Plus I have a bad habit of leaving the cap off things which never helps...
It has very good pigmentation though, and comes out dark and precise.
Overall, I really do like this eyeliner. I feel like it's easiness outweighs it's faults. For instance, the Benefit Push Up Liner looks amazing and lasts forever but is so gimmicky and hard to use that I can't stand it.
Have any of you tried this product? What do you think of it? I'd love to hear in the comments!
See you soon! x
