Review: Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Gel Eyeliner and Precision Micro Eyeliner

Hi Ladies,
Today I am going to review two Rimmel eyeliners. The first is a potted gel eyeliner and the second is a felt tip eyeliner. Both are very affordable and have their pros and cons.

Here is what is said about this gel eyeliner on the Rimmel site:
Up to 24 hours of rich, intense colour that doesn't flake, smudge, smear or run.
• Easy to apply, glides easily
• Professional brush for complete control to draw the lines you want

Available in 4 shades: black, brown, purple, and blue "

This gel eyeliner is very pigmented and goes on smooth. It is a little sticky when you first apply it however, it dries normal. I have worn this on several occasions and it lasts all day long with no smudging or fading. I really enjoyed this liner. One thing that I didn't like about this eyeliner was the brush that came with it. Its not the worst brush in the world but the tip is rounded and I found it difficult to draw an even straight line. I use my own flat tipped liner brush to use with this.

Scandaleyes Precision Micro Eyeliner $5.99 at Walgreens
Here is what is said about this felt tip eyeliner on the Rimmel site:
"• Ultra fine applicator draws a super precise line
• Intense colour lasts up to 24 hours
• Waterproof and smudge-proof"

This liner is good if you want a super thin line. I felt that it applied a little watery but it wasn't the worst liquid liner I have tried. When I was drawing on the liner, I felt that I had to keep going over it several times to try to make the color solid and darker. It was taking the liner underneath off when I was drawing over it. I found that I had to let the first layer dry before adding more color to it.

Here are swatches of the liners:

Overall, I definitely prefer the first liner better. It is a nice switch up from my Kat Von D liquid liner. I would recommend the Scandaleyes Gel Eyeliner however the Precision Micro Eyeliner was kind of a miss for me. This is just my opinion so someone else might hate the gel liner and love the micro liner. These are cheap enough for you to try out both during a  BOGO 50% off sale at the drugstore.

Have you tried either of these eye liners? What are your thoughts on them? Post your comments below!
