Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paint (in Rich Russet)

Cream eyeshadows seem to be taking the market by storm lately and with so many offerings out there buying one can be quite an overwhelming task. I've found one that's long lasting, easy to apply (and blend), inexpensive AND they offer a good colour pay off. Interested?

I picked myself a tube of Rimmels Scandaleyes Shadow Paint's in the shade 'Rich Russet' (which I personally think is the most wearable shade in the range). It's a gorgeous warm toned taupe, and like the other shades available, has a metallic finish. There are four other shades in the range; so if this isn't your cup of tea there are a few others to choose from!

I've been wearing this alone most days, but I've found that it also acts as a great base to pop on before applying powder eyeshadows. I like to apply this before applying eyeshadows from my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette (to create a nice sultry look).

It has quite a thick consistency but blends out very easily. Be warned though, they dry very quickly (and once they're dry they will not budge!) so be sure to blend it out straight away.
It's super handy that it's packed in a little tube too - great for chucking into your makeup bag!

I would highly recommend that you try one out for yourself. I'm so impressed with the longevity and I think it's a great alternative to powder shadows. Great for lazy make up days!

You can pick these up in Boots and Superdrug for just £4.99.
