Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Pencil in 005 Nude

Hello gentle readers.

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Pencil in 005 Nude is a recent addition to my makeup arsenal. I have been on the hunt for an affordable neutral toned eyeliner pencil that I can use on my lower waterline for a while now. When Rimmel released this one, I headed out to my local CVS and picked one up.

The Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Pencil sells for around six dollars in my area. The price may be slightly higher or lower depending on where you live or shop. I frequently find Rimmel coupons in my coupon booklets in my Sunday paper. A dollar off can make this pencil even more affordable.

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Pencil has 1.2 g or 0.024 fl. Oz of product ina standard sized liner pencil.


Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner is a neutral toned nude. It is a good colour for the lower waterline to brighten up the eyes. It doesn't look too pink, it won't make your eyes look tired or as if you have been crying, it isn't too white so it doesn't make you look bloodless and worn out.

The formula of this liner is very nice. This liner is soft, creamy and smooth, it applies evenly and easily without pulling, tugging, dragging or skipping. The formula is mild and non irritating to my sensitive eyes, I can wear this pencil on my waterline all day without my eyes putting up even a whisper of protest. Wear time on my waterline is about average. I start noticing wear at the outer corners of my eye after a couple of hours and a quick touch up is required. I usually have to touch up a couple of more times throughout my day if I want the liner to stay perfect on my waterline.

 I know what you are thinking; why would I want a liner pencil I have to touch up? You whippersnappers don't remember the good old days. Back in the eighties when we rimmed our eyes, top lid, lower, upper and lower waterline in black pencil liner. The moment we were done, the obsessing began. The constant checking, the light stroking of a finger under the eye to catch or prevent a run or smear. You see, liner technology in the eighties wasn't what it is, now. Liner pencils back then didn't set to smear proof perfection like they do, now. That stuff traveled. Enthusiastically. In order to maintain our oh-so-fabulously lined eyes, we were required to carry our liner pencil and a mirror with us at all times. We were forever checking in that mirror, cleaning up and using that pencil to touch up. Let me tell you something else about those pencils, they weren't soft, creamy and lovely, like they are now. Oh, no. Even if you didn't smoke, you carried a lighter. A lighter that you used to carefully soften and melt the liner so that you could get that deep, black line. Keeping perfectly lined eyes was a commitment you took seriously and you worked like a dog at it. So yeah, a few quick, effortless touch ups with a creamy, beautifully formulated liner pencil to keep my waterline fresh and perfect? No big deal. I can do it in my sleep. Now, get off my lawn.

I like the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner Pencil in 005 Nude. It is a nice, affordable pencil, has a lovely formula, applies well and has decent if not super lasting power on my waterline. I would buy it again and I recommend it.
