Available in 10 gorgeous colors, Rimmel London ScandalEyes Shadow Stick is a chubby crayon that touts a 24Hr waterproof formula with high impact color and a high-shine, luminous finish.

About the same size as NARS Soft Touch Shadow Pencils, the ScandalEyes Shadow Sticks are roughly 4.25 inches tall and fit nicely in an Urban Decay, NARS and Milani sharpener.

Color-selection wise, these are just like my favorite Milani Shadow Eyez 12 Hour Eyeshadow Pencils, only better. There are both wearable neutrals and bold brights for the fun-loving:

Whiteness White is a shimmery white.
Bulletproof Beige is a shimmery goldish beige.
Guilt Grey is a shimmery charcoal.
Tempting Turquoise is a shimmery turquoise similar to NARS Palladium Soft Touch Eyeshadow.
Paranoid Purple is shimmery rich purple.
Gossip Green is a shimmery grass green.
Blackmail is a matte black just like NARS Empire Soft Touch Eyeshadow.
Blamed Blue, my favorite, is a shimmery peacock blue.

The eyeshadow sticks felt super creamy and glided right on just like butter. They were also heavily pigmented and so easy to blend, making them great as a base for powder eyeshadow or to wear on their own. The longevity was amazing as well! The colors stayed on so well they did not budge a single bit even when I ran water over them and took an oil-based remover to come off completely. But the best part? The price, which is even lower than the Milani – making them handsdown the cheapest yet one of the best shadow crayons out there!
