REVIEW: Rimmel Waterproof Gel Liner

18 Oct

Rimmel Rimmel Rimmel.

I had a bit of a makeup malfunction today, resulting in half my eye liner to be removed. So, hoping to reverse the damage, I strolled to the local Coles (i.e. supermarket) and picked up the Rimmel Waterproof Eye Liner.

On the outside, the packaging looked great. Chic, fun and very promising with “smudge proof” and “water proof” printed over the front in big bold letters.

I was also quite impressed by the whole brush mechanism! It’s been cleverly built into the cap of the bottle, making it fool proof so the used brush won’t stain anything when packed away.

The moment I applied some product on my lids though, I was instantly disappointed.

With each stroke, the gel to be pushed to both sides of my nicely drawn line. Within minutes (if even) the liner sunk into the creases of my lids and essentially began to rub off!
After a little while, the liner even began making smudge marks all along my lower lash line, causing an even bigger disaster than what I started with!

Rimmel Waterproof Gel Liner Swatch

Above is a swatch of the liner on my arm – don’t be deceived by the apparent clean line. It definitely won’t fair well in a little while.

Everything that was advertised – water proof and smudge proof proved to be false.
The only thing that was waterproof was the stain of the swatch on my arm.

Rating? 2/10.

Try to steer clear ladies.
