Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Paint

This is yet another Rimmel product review!! Sorry Everyone :)
This one is another great product but to be  honest I already have a very similar product, which does the same job and is practically the same colour as well, so really I didn't need this product but you know I obviously "had" to try it anyway!!
These are the new Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Paints which come in 5 shades, I got the one in Rich Russets which is a lovely golden taupe colour. These are great used as bases for shadows because they seriously do not budge. They are waterproof and crease proof and apparently last for 8 hours!!
Every brand seems to be bringing out these stay on all day type of cream shadows and once you have a few colours from one brand there really isn't any point in buying anymore unless a certain brand bring out an amazingly beautiful shade which in this case Rimmel haven't they are all just similar to the Maybelline 24hr Tatoo ones which I already have.
I think if you don't have any waterproof cream shadows then these are great to try, but really they are no better and no worst than all the other products of the same nature out there.
These in my opinion, bearing in mind I already own a wide range of the Maybelline 24hr ones, are a waste of money and to be honest I think Rimmel are slightly behind the times here!!

Rimmel Scandaleyes Thick & Thin Eyeliner Review

Rimmel is my favourite drugstore brand and whenever they bring out new products I am straight in Boots buying them!!
This works out very expensive but too be honest it is very rare that I am not really impressed with the Rimmel products I purchase and this product is no different, it is another really great product from Rimmel.
I have been using the Maybelline Gel Eyeliner recently and I love it but it can be quite time consuming especially in the morning when I'm rushing getting ready for work, so this eyeliner which is more like a felt tip pen is really handy and easy to apply. 
It has a 3D tip so you can choose whether you want a thick or a thin liner and I also find it great to use the thin side to get into the corner of my eyes then the thicker side to wing it out.
I find this really easy to use and on nights out I love using my gel eyeliner but then I pop this in my handbag and use it for touch ups. Plus this is waterproof so if you used your gel eyeliner then went over the top with this then it will not go anywhere all day/night!!
I am saying use this over the top of your gel eyeliner because I don't find this black enough for me. I like quite a strong liner especially at night and this on it's own just isn't pigmented enough but over the top of another more highly pigmented liner it will just hold everything in place. Although in the day when you don't want such a strong eye this is great.

There is a downside to this product and I'm not sure if it is just mine or not but I find that it is very dry as if it is going to run out soon, like a felt tip pen does, but that can't be as I only got it the other day. This may also be the cause of the colour pay off not being great and the only thing I can think of is that I have picked up one that was used to test in the store. 
 Let me know if you have tried this and what you thought.
