Rimmel Scandaleyes Micro Eyeliner Review, Swatches: Hi everyone, hope all of you are doing well and keeping safe. I didn’t even know Rimmel London made eyeliner pens, my sister in law got a few things for me from the US and this was one the gifts. I got it last year but haven’t had the chance to open it, did that a few months back when I had to travel before the pandemic.
Though it is available in India as well but somehow, I never came across it or maybe it was launched later, I don’t know but it is now available very easily online.

In Detail Rimmel Scandaleyes Micro Eyeliner Review, Swatches and My Experience
Rimmel London Scandaleyes Precision Micro Eyeliner. It’s a very fine tip eyeliner pen, its genuinely a micro tip which can be worked into a thicker line as well.
It’s a simple pen concept. It has a cap and its sleek and all black color theme. It is said to be water proof and smudge proof. Its quite pigmented, a single stroke will give you quite a dark black and a couple will make it really dark.
Though it is said to be smudge proof- it doesn’t smudge but it flakes off, just after a couple of mins it starts to fade away and transfer to my upper lid. I get quite oily in summers and if I have even a little bit oil on my lids, it’s gone in 10 mins, like a big arch on my lid itself. It transfers completely and can be removed with your bare finger. It just doesn’t stay.
After a couple of minutes of application, it feels very uncomfortable on the lids, like something is pulling at the eyelids, its very uncomfortable, no matter how I apply it, how thin I apply it , or I stretch a bit or not stretch even a little bit, it just doesn’t work, I find it difficult to blink only, the color also bleeds a bit (you can see in the picture, how it spreads around).
I had great hopes from this pen liner, when I saw it, it felt good, the tip was so precise and soft yet sturdy , it is very easy to apply and also , the precise tip gave the benefit of drawing any kind of liner very quickly and easily, even for a beginner a eyeliner pen is perfect to get the desired look.
It might suit a dry skin or normal skin, but it doesn’t work for me at all.
Removing it isn’t an issue and can be removed any which ways. Even with a basic wipe it can be removed.
Pros of Rimmel Scandaleyes Micro Eyeliner
- Precise tip
- Available easily
- Quite a bit of quantity
- Pen concept, good for even beginners
Cons of Rimmel Scandaleyes Micro Eyeliner
- Transfers a lot
- Doesn’t stay for more than 15 mins on my lids
- Weighs down my lids
- Very uncomfortable
- Not worth the money
I have combination skin, and it gets very oily in summer and monsoons, it doesn’t work for me , if you are any other skin type it might suit you but I wouldn’t be too sure about it. If you have my skin type please don’t waste your money on it, it has been quite a disappointment to me, a huge one if I am being honest. I really with it worked for me.
