Save vs Splurge | Rimmel ScandalEyes Eyeliner

Pixi Bright Eyes Liner in Nude vs Rimmel ScandalEyes Kohl Pencil in Nude - Aspiring Londoner

One of the many things I love about blogging is finding cheaper alternatives to expensive products that I love.  It makes it easier on the purse strings to and enables me to repurchase the product often!  Today’s product is something I pretty much use on a daily basis, a nude eyeliner.
I was sent the Pixi Eye Bright Liner in Nude*, £10.50 and instantly fell in love with its creamy formula, velvety texture and brilliant colour payoff.  I started using it everyday to line my lower waterline.  However at around £11 a pencil, it was going to be an expensive love affair!  I was dreading the thought of having to repurchase it.  I had a heard a lot about the Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Liner in Nude, £3.99; however a part of me was dubious as drugstore eyeliners tend to be a little hit and miss.  I have previously bought eyeliners from the highstreet only to find that the formula was waxy, it dragged the skin and the colour payoff was next to none.

On a whim, I purchased mine and was absolutely over the moon to realise the hype was real around this product!  The formula is pretty much the same as the Pixi eye liner, the pigmentation and colour payoff is incredible, and all for under £4!  It stays put just as well as the Pixi one.  You can’t not have this in your makeup bag.  It’s every bit as good as it’s more expensive counterpart, and for a quarter of the price, it’s a steal!  If you had to pick something to improve, the Pixi eyeliner is  a wind up mechanism one, whereas you have to  sharpen the Rimmel one.  Considering the price and the quality of the product, this is not an issue for me, definitely not a deal breaker!

I’ve since gotten couple more colours from the Rimmel range, the silver one is brilliant, see it in action in this post.  I really want the cobalt blue colour, but it is always out of stock!  I can imagine it looking amazing on the bottom lash line.

What’s your go to eyeliner pencil for everyday?  Have you tried the Rimmel Exaggerate eyeliners or the Pixi eye liners?  Share in the comments below or tweet me @aspiring_london!
