Rimmel Exaggerate Eye Definer in Starlit Black

Rimmel Exaggerate Eye Definer in Starlit Black Review
Recently I’ve been trying to be more adventurous with my makeup so I thought I would try out a shade that is very wearable. Rimmel Exaggerate Eyeliner in Starlit Black (£3.99) is a pigmented sparkly black shade with silver flicks. It’s soft, creamy and easy to blend however if you press too hard it can be a little crumbly. Even though it’s waterproof and doesn’t smudge, I did find that near the end of the day it started to fade but lasted around 8-9 hours before fading.

I love this style of packaging especially for an eyeliner as it is a twist up pencil which means that there is no product wastage and no need to sharpen, there’s also a smudger on the opposite end. Overall I quite like this eyeliner, as long as you use a light touch it doesn’t crumble however this does put me off slightly and I’m not sure if I would repurchase this. On the other hand I’ve been using this in the evening and is a lovely shade for going out when you want to glam up your makeup a little bit.

    I've never tried these last nets before but I love their Scandaleyes pencils. I love the glitter in this, it's so pretty xx

    I am looking for a new colour apart from black, but I still like it dark, so this may be the one. Its just so so pretty!

    This is pretty!
    I've got a similar one by Stila. Shame about the crumbling but I find most soft liners do the same.
    Check out the liners by Daniel Sandler. So creamy and lovely to use :)

    Wow I love this shade, with the addition of the silver flicks. Fab review sweetie, definitely tempted to try this, would just have to be careful and apply with a light hand :)

    I love the shimmer in it! I've definitely noticed with some Rimmel eye and lip liners that they can crumble at times- I hate that!
