This may shock you guys (NOT!) but I find myself way impressed with Rimmel lately. I have been anticipating these new releases because I watch quite a few international youtubers & they tend to get things first! FleurDeForce, who is pretty much gorgeously amazing, has been recommending these handy liners & comparing them to NARS. I quickly jotted down their names & impatiently waiting…& now they’re here!

Guys I am SO impressed. First of all, let us talk about this black shade. So soft, so creamy so smudgeable, SO waterproof! This is also so black! I think this rivals some of my blackest blackest & I feel like maybe it is time to compare my blackest liners after this! Obviously when I think waterproof, I think waterline. & this actually works for me! I am so impressed! After about 4 hours it still looks nice & after 6 I could see wear. For me, that is wonderful & I do currently have allergy eyes so I’m excited to see how this works when my eyes are dryer! If I apply it to my eyes (not the waterline) it lasts all day.
Sparkling Black & Brown are both big hits for me as well! I personally don’t wear dark brown eyeliner because I feel like I prefer black but I do love a good medium brown shade! This is a gorgeous cool toned medium brown with some barely there bronze shimmer. I’ll have to see if this dupes any of my high end medium browns.
This Sparkling Black is a unique & lovely surprise. Normally, blacks with shimmer or glitter just look off to me. After I apply them I always think “That would look better just black.” While I still prefer black, this is a gorgeous shade of graphite PACKED with silver glitter. want to call them flecks…but they are super fine but a tad larger. This is the first sparkling black where the glitter doesn’t irritate me, transfers well, &actually lasts! This has real pigment to me instead of just a skipping glitter liner. I think this will be amazing with a pretty smoky eye!
I felt the need to post about these ASAP because they’re new to the US Rimmel line & I honestly haven’t seen much coverage! Have you checked these out? What shades look good to you? Would you guys be interested in a post or video about my black eyeliner favs & fails?
