Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paint

The Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paints were released in the UK sometime during the autumn of 2013, but only made their way to US shores earlier this year. After seeing many a review of these, I was excited to get my hands on them-especially as there were some new shades introduced in the US launch! I did have a hard time getting my hands on these, as all of the instore displays I managed to find were completely picked over. But, between ASOS.com and Walgreens.com, I've managed to get ahold of the four shades I am interested in.

If you are on the hunt for a cheap and super easy eye shadow, I cannot recommend the Rimmel Shadow Paints enough! They come with a doe foot applicator and are easy to blend (I just use my fingers). They do set quickly, but you have around 45 seconds to blend them on your eyelid. And once they do set, they are exceptionally long lasting. I've had absolutely zero creasing regardless of how long I've worn them, and I have oily lids prone to creasing!

I find myself reaching for these when I want a one color wash on my lids, although I have on occasion used two of the shades together in one eye look. They do have a metallic finish, but once you blend them out onto your lids, it is less stark than in the swatches above.

I have found myself grabbing for Peachy Apricot the most. It's a light, fresh bronzed peach that has become my go to throughout the spring and summer. I simply put a few dabs directly onto my lids, blend out with my fingers and repeat again through the crease. I find it is easier to work in small sections with the shadow paints, as it gives me more control over where I want the product to go and how opaque I want the finish. Ultimately, though, it is one of the easiest applications out of all the cream/liquid eye shadow products I own. 

Have you tried any of the Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Paints yet? Which are your favorite shades?
