Hello beautiful people! In case you are wondering who am I? My name is Arshita. And as obvious, I am a beauty, fashion and makeup freak (I am! Guilty as charged)! I am from the ‘rosogulla-city’ Kolkata and I have been an admirer and follower of this blog since forever. At first, I was very shy to leave any comment at all, now that I have my own baby blog (not so baby anymore!), I got the courage to interact a bit. And as I was really astonished by this awesome blog, I immediately had a thought of being a part of it, and thus here I am. I hope I had explained myself quite well, and now let us move on to the product that I am going to review today!
Since my childhood, if not anything else, I got one compliment almost from everyone and anyone around me and that is about my eyes. And, even though I try to give others “oh-really?” expression, but my dressing table knows how much time I spend there ( 😉 )! So, the bottom line, I am a bit obsessed with my eye makeup and excuse me if you guys notice more than usual eye makeup product reviews by me (not that you will hate)!
Today I am going to review a very beautiful eye liner from Rimmel London, which is called “Rimmel London Exaggerate Waterproof Eyeliner Deep Ocean.”
Price & Quantity: Rs. 315 for 0.28g.
Shelf Life: 3 years.
My take on Rimmel London Exaggerate Waterproof Eyeliner Deep Ocean
Packaging: This eye liner comes in a sleek and chic twist up pen packaging. It has a very soft rubber type of a thing on the other end of this pen, for smudging. The twist up pen is indeed very useful in terms of proper and precise usage as well as less wastage.
Texture: The lead is very creamy and glides on the skin very swiftly. But, there is a downside to that, because of its smooth and creamy texture, the lead tends to break easily. One or two swipes give the proper and pure shade. Sometimes, it is difficult to work on the waterline with eye liner pencils, but this one works with ease. It is smudge-proof to a very good level. Rubbing fingers vigorously while wearing this eye liner, won’t smudge or ruin the look even a little bit. But, I do not find the smudger built in with this pen very helpful, as for me, it works like an eraser! I try to smudge with it, and the moment I blink, it’s gone!
Shade: The name of the shade is deep ocean, which is indeed very apt. I like eye liners in blue shades, may be Fifty Shades of Blue, yes! This one is close to navy blue but not so dark (I know, I am terrible at explaining shades). It has a shiny finish but no glitters (thank goodness!). The satin touch of this eye liner looks very classy and the deep blue shade looks attractive on Indian brown eyes ( 🙂 ).
Staying Power: As I have told already, this does not smudge, even if you try. The staying power is quite excellent; it stays all day long without a crease. I have watery waterline, and still it stays at least 7 hours intact on my waterline. I am pretty impressed with its longevity and also the shade. So, I am actually in love with this eye liner!
