Stop what you're doing. NOW !

Thank you.

Now, take a look at these beauties. They cost only $6 !!! I mean only $6 for all this colorful gorgeousness ! The new Rimmel Spark It Up Liner is IT. Never have I seen a drugstore brand come up with such pretty colors ! Yeah there are the styli styles, Wet n Wilds , Milanis and they are all good. But they don't have this. They don't make these pretty pretty metallic, gleaming colors with a hint of black !




The five colors I tested out were

Tiger's Eye - Bronze black
Lapis - deep bluish purple
Ultraviolet - Violet
Peridot - Deep Bottle green
Black Gold - Olive greenish dirty gold ( Hey, that's a color !)


I love love love that all shades are deep , highly pigmented and have a hint of black. They all have a light metallic sheen that is oh so sexy ! I am generally scared of pencil pencil liners because they can be hard and scratch the eye. Hence I've always gravitated towards the automatic eye pencils. But not this one. These gleaming eyeliners are creamy and super easy to apply. They are not long staying so don't expect 18 hours of color on your waterline. Lets get realistic and reapply after four or so hours.

For $6 I cant praise them enough. They remind me of the pearl glide eyeliners that came out with MAC Suite Array collection. But I am not comparing. These ones are great ! Go get em now and tell me you love em !

You are free to resume work at this moment.

Love,
Indian Girl

i officially want all of them! don't know whether to thank you or bop you on the head for sharing this. actually just got these exact colors from nyx yesterday, but your swatches look much more like the deepness of the colors that i was hoping for from the mediocre nyx pencils. oo, want them now. ;)

Love the hint of black that these have. I can't recall looking at them, probably because I wasn't looking. Will definitely check them out. Thanks so much

Hi Halifax !

Hi Rupa !

Aww :( Apparently lame eyeliners are great. MAC ones are great too but I guess tey cost around Rs.2000 or 1500!!!!!!!!! This is insane coz the lakme one would be 200 ! LOL !

Hi patrice !

SO true ! pretty pretty shades. Glad they are not the regular blue, purple types

Hi priya !

They are getting rediscovered I'd say ! Their lipsticks and mascaras are very good ! I've heard they will be introducing more new mascaras this year - yay !

Rupa said... @ July 16, 2009 at 1:26 PM

Yes, I use Lakme too. They are pretty good. I use their glide on eye pencil in smokey green and its a lovely color....these colors remind me of Lakme-bridal sutra collection. have you tried those? Yes, MAC is quite expensive. And I really want to buy their concealor since you really liked it....will need your advice when I buy that :)
