Rimmel

The first review I want to do for my Influenster Frosty VoxBox is for the Rimmel products. Rimmel sent London Gentle Eye Makeup Remover, and Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner. I was thrilled to get both as I was looking for a new eyeliner, and really wanted to try out a makeup remover.

I had never used an eye makeup remover before, so I wasn't really sure what to expect. I was hoping that it would gently remove all eyeliner and mascara without the need for scrubbing at my eyes. While it did remove most of my eye makeup I still felt like there was a lot of residue left. It also made my eyes feel kind of...gross? It was kind of tingly like I could feel all the chemicals going right into my eye, but it wasn't painful. Sorry, I don't know how to explain it any better than that. I don't care for using a bunch of chemicals so close to my eyes, so the fact that it made my eyes feel gross was a huge turn off. Unfortunately, I feel like wiping my eyes with water had the same effect as the Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. I really wanted to love this makeup remover, but the fact is I don't, and I would not purchase it in the future.

I am still on the fence about the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner. I love how smoothly it goes on. I love how deep the color is. I can wear it all day and it doesn't fade on my upper lid. It still rubs off pretty easily on my lower lid, which is a problem with every eyeliner I've tried. Quick touch ups throughout the day would easily fix the lower lid problem, but I guess I just want my makeup to last all day after putting it on. Overall I am pretty satisfied with the Scandaleyes Eyeliner. I would probably purchase it over other brands if the price was right :)
