I love eyeliner! I just love the look of it, it's the only make up product that i don't mind applying, i love how it makes my eyes look, i just love it!... but of course, i only love it when it does its job... I got this eyeliner for £4, it was a reasonable price, and it was waterproof. So firstly, lets cover the definition of waterproof. Waterproof- Impervious to water/unaffected by water. Now some people like to apply their eyeliner on either their water line, or just underneath/on the line of their lower lashes. Preferably, i like to apply mine on my water line- i feel as though it gives my eyes more of a defined look- therefore when i bought this WATERPROOF eyeliner, i assumed it would be the perfect one to apply on my WATER line- how wrong was I. I apply my eyeliner first, out of all my make up products. Here is the order i apply my make up when including this certain eyeliner... EYELINER, moisturiser, concealer, EYELINER, foundation, powder, EYELINER, mascara and oh yes, more EYELINER. The reason for the pattern which you see here, is because this eyeliner fails to stay on for more than 10 minutes- and that is pushing it! I am yet to go out in the rain and have it full pelting me in the face (usually protected by an umbrella etc) therefore i haven't experienced whether the eyeliner (which by now would be gathered on my lower lash line or accentuating my dark circles) actually starts dripping down my face. I am aware that not everyone uses eyeliner for under their eyes; some actually apply it just above their top lashes too. However, i don't know if this is just me, but my eyelids can get quite oily- and of course, this eyeliner fails to withstand oil (a WATER- like substance) therefore the eyeliner just ends up smudging and going all over my lid. And one last thing, the eyeliner is also very bitty!!
I own this eyeliner in black and use it almost every day. I've tried so many eyeliners and this is by far the best for me! Its relatively inexpensive at about £4 and one eyeliner will last me a couple of months using it virtually every day. The eyeliner itself is a very nice smooth consistency so it glides on really easily, on either the waterline or top lash line. I use it instead of liquid liner most days because it's very pigmented so still gives the definition but is quicker and less messy than liquid liner. It stays on very well as well because it's waterproof so even if your eyes water it will still be there. I sometimes have to top up on my waterline once a day but only because I like really intense colour, not because it's all come off. I think the main reason this eyeliner was a keeper for me though is because of its extra features. I love the fact that it twists up unlike normal eyeliners that need sharpening, because I always forget to sharpen them. It also means you can wind it back down so that the tip doesn't get squashed. If you do want to sharpen it there is a sharpener on the other side of the smudger, but I rarely use this. Because it's attached though it means you'll never lose it! It also comes with a smudger with works well but again, I rarely use it so can't comment.
I don't normally go for Rimmel products, seeing them as the products that I used as a teenager and therefore in the cheap and cheerful bracket. However, I decided that I'd try their eyeliner and mascara as I'm now choosing to spend more of my beauty budget on decent skincare and foundation products and less on eye make up. I am really impressed with this eyeliner. It was £3.99 and I bought it in black. I go through tons of black eyeliner so was hoping that this one wouldn't smudge or run off as I have sensitive eyes. I prefer a pencil type eyeliner to a liquid one and this is a nice creamy stick, but not greasy like a pencil can be. It glides on beautifully. The lead is twisted up and then twisted back down again afterwards. At the other end of the pencil is a smudging tool with a lid to protect it, so I tend to apply a thicker line, smudge it with the smudging tool (which also hides any slippage during the day!) and then apply a thinner line over the top along the lash line. Something I've noticed on the other reviews of this product is that people have said that you can't sharpen this product. I discovered something else about the smudging tool - if you pull on it, it comes right off and is double ended. On the other end is a sharpener! The thickness of the stick is fine on it's own, its not too thick, but you can use this little sharpener to get the product to a fine tip, making it even more versatile! My eyes are horrendous - they water at any opportunity, but this liner has really stuck on all day. I've not had any particularly bad smudging or running - being waterproof I would expect this, but it doesn't always seem to work that way, so I was impressed that this is truly waterproof! I will definately be buying this product again once it runs out!
The Exaggerate Waterproof Eye definer by Rimmel does pretty much what it says on the tin (or pencil in this case!) Its job is simply to add definition to the eyes by making them stand out and look prettier. The eyeliner The product has an eyeliner pencil at one end which is protected by a lid. When you remove the lid, you can see the product is shaped a little like a pencil and the edge has been shaped into a point. Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy You use the product to draw along and slightly above the upper lashes and along and slightly below the lower lashes. The edge of the pencil is well defined so it is fairly easy to get a nice straight line. The colour is thick and noticeable, leaving a lovely splash of definition along the lashes. It doesn't have the harshness of a liquid liner and the result is softer but still very much there. Where's the sharpener? Well, the good news is that you don't need one. The product is self sharpening so you won't need to spend ages trying to track down a pencil sharpener when it becomes too blunt. You simply twist the pencil and more appears. It does lose some of the initial definition and the line becomes thicker so I tend to use the edge instead of the top. This is a shame but not a massive problem. Gently does it... The liner itself is incredibly soft and it glides across the delicate skin around the eye meaning that it won't pull the area at all. The liner comes out well on the very first application so you won't need to go over the same area twice which means the product lasts longer and it saves your precious skin from getting sore. The liner is doesn't sting on my skin and you can forget your wearing the product as it feels completely comfortable. The smudger At the other end of the pencil is a pointed blending sponge which is covered by a clear cap to protect it. It is very sturdy and won't bend but it still soft and gentle enough to use around the eye area. The purpose of the blender is to gently rub the liner that you have just applied to make it look more natural and the line less harsh. It is easy to use and it works well although it doesn't make a huge difference. Ooops, I've made a mistake! Whenever I make a mistake, it can be easily rectified with a cotton bud dipped in a cream cleanser. It's not that easy to make a mistake with this product but I still manage it when I'm not fully concentrating (or I've already started on the wine!) Waterproof? It seems to be waterproof. If I have been caught out in the rain, it stays put even if my mascara doesn't. It won't come off completely when I wash my face with just water and a cream cleanser or face wash is needed to get it completely clean. I am looking forward to trying it out on holidays as I don't think that the pool would leave me looking like a panda when wearing this. I've also found it to be largely resistant to me rubbing my eyes when I get tired. Impressive! Available Shades I chose to buy Noir which is a deep black colour but also available is Sable which is a dark brown, Deep ocean which is dark blue and Emerald Sparkle which is a delicious forest green colour. Other colours include a sparkling Precious Gold and for the braver amongst us a Purple Shock. Price The product costs around £4 but it will last you a very long time providing that you don't wind the liner up to far and snap it. The product is available from most department stores including Boots and also from larger supermarkets. At the moment, there is a three for two offers on Rimmel products in a Boots so you could grab a couple! Conclusion All in all, if you're looking for a pencil eye liner, you can't go far wrong with this one. It has good staying power, strong colour and it is easy to apply. I haven't got any complaints about this product.
I tend to prefer liquid eyeliners to pencil eyeliner simply because the colour is so much deeper and it's more accurate. Also, pencil liners are sometimes very hard and they don't draw easily. However, I was getting tired of the marker pen style eyeliners drying up so quickly, so I thought I'd give this one a go. The best part about this eyeliner is that the colour is as dark as you'd expect from a liquid liner - just the other day someone asked what liquid liner I use and was really surprised when I said it was pencil. Being a pencil liner, it's much easier to apply than a liquid and if you make a mistake it's easy to rub it off. This doesn't mean that it smudges off easily normally though - I usually apply it every morning and don't take it off till late at night and the line is almost good as new. It goes on soft and doesn't tug at the eyelid at all. The only issue is that the eyeliner tends to get rather blunt which makes it difficult to draw thin lines, but you could easily sharpen it.
I recently decided that I wanted to save up for a holiday, and as part of my money saving scheme, I have decided to switch to cheaper make up brands, as I usually use Benefit make up and this is quite expensive. I popped into Boots on the high street on a recent shopping trip to find a cheaper eyeliner but I wanted one that would still work well, as I did still want good quality at a lower price. I found a Rimmel Exaggerate Automatic Waterproof Eye Definer and as I had used Rimmel make up in the past, I knew it to be a good brand and I thought it would be a good idea. I bought one in Noir, or black for those among us that speak English for our make up colours. This also comes in a collection of other colours, so everyone should be able to find one that suits them and the make up that they wear. Like pretty much every eyeliner in the world, this one is a straight pencil, with a lid to protect the main part of the eyeliner. The writing on the pencil is in silver, and looks like it is printed in foil. On one end of the pencil is a smudging sponge, which is protected by a clear cap. This is great if you wish to create smokey eyes or other smudged effects with your eyeliner. I am used to having pencils that you have to sharpen up once in a while, but this eyeliner is one of the ones that require you to twist it to raise up some of the actual eyeliner inside. When you have finished using it, you can twist it back down again so that it does not get broken or damaged in anyway whilst in storage. It is really simple and smooth to twist up the eyeliner, and it is really easy to use. The eyeliner smooths on really easily and nicely, it hardly takes any effort to get a good amount on my eyes. The colour of this eyeliner is really nice, very dark and it just looks perfect. I find it makes a really good cut line which really helps the eyes to stand out. The eyeliner stays in place quite well too, and it does take a few hours before any of it starts to leak out of my eyes. I get the occasional small piece of black on the inner and outer corners of my eyes throughout the day or night, but I very rarely get any underneath my eyes. I am really pleased with the way this stays put on my eyes. It is really easy to remove this eyeliner too, I mostly use make up wipes to take off my make up, but I have also found that this eyeliner comes off easily with face wash and cleansers too. No matter what way you choose to remove your make up, you should have no problems taking this eyeliner off. I actually was quite impressed with this eyeliner, and other than the occasional leak, it is pretty good and I only paid £3.49 for it, so for the price it is even more impressive to me. I like the fact that I do not have to sharpen this eyeliner, as I hate it when I get shorter pencils that become fiddly to use, but I am just not ready to throw away. I also do not like having the shavings from the pencil around as they always seem to make a mess, no matter how careful I am to dispose of them. You can buy this eyeliner in Boots, Superdrug and some of the larger supermarkets that sell make up. I recommend this eyeliner, as I do think that there is anything wrong with it. For the price, I really was expecting less than what I got, but I am happy with it and because of this I give this eyeliner a 5 out of 5 stars. *This review is also on Ciao under the username of Hailee*
This soft eyeliner comes with the eyeliner on one end, and a smudger concealing a sharpener on the other end. The eyeliner is easily to apply, it's soft texture glides on effortlessly, and doesn't feel sticky on first application. It is certainly not one for a subtle daytime look, as I think it instantly defines your eyes, making them look bigger and bolder. There isn't really any need to sharpen this eyeliner, as you simply need to twist it to reveal more, but sometimes these soft eyeliners for a bit blunt at the tip, giving you a wider line, which may not always be what you want. I have tried the sharpener, and it restores the tip to how it was when I purchased it, although you have to be gentle not to break off any of the eyeliner. This eyeliner is great for the smokey eyed look, as the smudger helps you soften the liner and blend it in to the rest of your eye make up. This eyeliner isn't prone to smudging when you're wearing it out, and it is also waterproof, something I can vouch for, as it hasn't smudged when I've got watery eyes in the wind. Being waterproof is probably the best bonus about this product. Definitely for those who wear eyeliner a lot and go for the bold eyed look, and want a lasting finish.
Waterproof mascara for me is a complete must have. Its not that I tend to go swimming a lot or anything like that but for some reason my eyes ALWAYS water no matter the weather or where I am. However for the first time this year Ive been suffering from hayfever so my eyes have been watering more than usual and so Ive been on the lookout for other waterproof make-up to prevent me from looking as if Im melting in the sunshine! This 'Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer' was actually one my mom picked up for me when she found it on sale in Boots - I usually stick with what I know when it comes to eyeliner as Im allergic to a lot of brands but I decided to give this one a try and Ive been VERY surprised because this is brilliant. Useful Information: Price: Around £4 Stockists: Boots, Superdrug, Amazon ETC Shades: Aqua Sparkle. Sable, Noir, Deep Ocean, Purple Shock, Precious Gold & Emerald Sparkle - I for one cannot wait to try out more colours from this range as it offers more variety than most brands of eyeliner. Other Info: Promises to be 100% water resistant against water, sweat and tears yet still remains easy to remove without having to scrub at your eyes. This pencil comes with an added smudge brush if your going for a more smudgy, smokey eyed look. *I personally own this eyeliner in 'Aqua Sparkle' which is a stunning light and glittery blue shade. Not one I would have picked out for myself BUT Im overjoyed I got to try it out.* At first glance this looks just like a normal eyeliner. It is still in the shape of a normal pencil but instead of being made of wood like most this one is actually made out of bright blue plastic - although I believe the colour depends on what shade you decide to buy. One thing I love about this liner is that I dont have to sharpen it! I have ruined so many liners with my shoddy sharpener but to use this you simply twist the bottom and the liner comes out the top - the design is definitely a big reason why I will be buying this again as its so much better than a pencil. There is a lid of the top of this liner to make sure it doesnt draw everywhere in your bag and at the bottom is the small smudge brush which also has a cap over the top to ensure it doesnt break off or ruin. All over the pencil is any information you could need - short list of ingredients, shelf life and an additional address you can write to should you have any other questions or queries about the product. A brilliant and a little bit different design - much better than a wooden pencil. Applying this is very simple as application wise its just a normal liner. You can apply this on top of your lid - where you would normally apply liquid liner or on your waterline - which is how I use this personally as I look better when its used that way. You can also choose to use the smudge brush when applying this which gies a more smokey look - Ive never done a smokey eyed look with bright/summery colours before so I loved doing it with this one and it does create a very different look on me - perfect for summery weather and it instantly draws peoples attention to your eyes. The colour of the liner I own in my opinion is simply stunning - even though it is not the type of shade I would have picked out for myself. Aqua Sparkle is a gorgeous sea blue/glittery blue shade and what it looks like on the pencil is exactly how it appears when its on your eyes - which is always good. This colour makes me eyes look instantly wider and more awake - which is why I apply this first thing in the morning most often. The colour suits my eye colour perfectly - even though I assumed that with brown eyes this would look a bit odd, but it really makes my eyes sparkle. I would never have picked this shade for myself BUT Im so glad I got the chance to try it out. The smokey look you can create with this is even more amazing because most people assume smokey eye effects can only be created with dark colours but again I love the look this gives me when I apply it that way. Thats now my signature look for beer garden weather. And Im even happier to say that this is 100% waterproof. My hayfever has been particularly bad lately and my eyes have been streaming non-stop but this has managed to stay put through all the eye watering over the last few weeks so it definitely does what it promised for me - stunning colour, easy to apply and it doesnt budge when my eyes are streaming, could this be my perfect eyeliner? Also this is easy to remove - personally I like to remove this with a proper eye make-up remover as I find it comes off much easier that way but this can also be easily wiped ayway with a standard baby wipe. Honestly one of the best liners Ive ever used, and perfect for hayfever season! Thanks For Reading. x0 Salz 0x
I always have to wear mascara and eyeliner. I used to use eye pencil, but then after I while I got a bit fed up of using them because I found that they smudged or 'melted away' and so I was left with nothing left. So this made me want to find something different. So off the Boots I went in search of a new eye pencil. Browsing the make up aisles, I came across the 'Rimmel' section, and the 'Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer' caught my eye. I didn't need much convincing, as it looked like a good one and Rimmel have a good name, and so off I went to the till to pay the £3.99 for it. The eye definer I have is the 'noir' one (black). The 'pencil' has a very attractive image and is professional looking. It's very small and so can easily fit in your handbag. It has a 'smudger' at the end, so you can smudge the definer if you want the 'smoky look'. However, I don't 'smudge' my eyes, and so for me the 'smudger' was more like a 'wipe' for when I went wrong and needed to erase the 'bad bits'. I love the colour of this eye definer; It's a great shade. It is dark enough that it makes your eyes really stand out, yet it is not so dark that it makes your eyes look 'heavy' and too dark. The definer is very soft (like a crayon), and so it needs to be applied gently. The eye liner is very easy to apply. I am not an 'eye person'; by that I mean I don't like eyes!! If someone mentions 'eyes', my eyes start to water (I'm weird I know!!), and I can't bear anyone else doing my 'eye make up for me'. So it was very important to me that this eye liner was easy to apply; and it was. I only needed to do one 'stroke' and it was enough for me. Whereas in the past, I have had to apply pencils lots of times to get it to stand out. But this one is great. The only thing is I found was that it started to smudge a little on my water line, although nothing major. A lot of eye pencils (I realise that this is different as it is an eye definer and not an eye pencil) I have used in the past have smudged, and so I was hoping that this would have some staying power, and it does which is good! It does stay put for a few hours (around 5) although I do find that after a while it does start to 'melt away', and so sometimes I have to re-apply it. Although, having said that, I am always touching my face and so perhaps that has something to do with it. I had been using this eye definer for a couple of months and was really happy with it. I had a lot of the eye definer left in the 'pencil', but everytime I went shopping I kept buying another one because the point had 'gone' and wasn't sharp enough for my liking. It didn't occur to me until a friend mentioned it to me, that if you pull the 'smudge' brush off, on the end of it is a sharpener!!! I tried the sharpener and it's ok. It does work, but it kind of reminds me of when, remember when you were a kid and you tried to sharpen a crayon in a pencil sharpener and it would 'block it', it reminded me a bit of like that. Although, you can actually get the crayon out of the sharperner with this! I can say that these eye definers are very long lasting (in terms of you won't have to buy another one for a while), and so they are well worth the money!! I would definately recommend this eye definer; it works wonders! It is definately the best eye definer I have come across. Thanks for reading!

Having had disappointing results with a Boots No7 Purple Eyeliner I was determined to try another brand and saw this one in Boots. Rimmel do a range of colours. I now have the Perfect Plum, Emerald sparkle and Aqua Sparkle. The eye liner comes in a twist up tube and so works in the same way as a lipstick. On the other end of the eye liner is a soft sponge smudger - which you can use after applying the eyeliner to give a softer line. And Hidden on the other side of the smudger is a sharpener. This means that is you want a sharp precise line you can sharpen the liner to a fine point. Personally I am happy applying it as it comes out of the stick and occassionally I use the smudger. An advantage of this product is that it is waterproof. Great if you get watery eyes in winter and also I found very useful for on holiday. You will need to use a eye make up remover to take off at night. You get 0.28g if product and it has lasted me well. It is a very creamy consistency and therefore easy to apply. My favourite colours are the Emerald sparkle and Aqua Sparkle as these really look good in the summer months. However now it is getting wintery the plum will start being used more. I need to go and see what other colours Rimmel do as I have been very impressed with this product.
With the autumn purple and brown comes into fashion again. Not that this would motivate me for buying a purple eye liner but I actually did. I was searching on the Boots online an eye liner which is not like regular pencils as it is so hard sharpening some of them and their point becomes hard after a while. I found Rimmel's Exaggerate waterproof eye definer which looks like a pencil but actually it is not. Under the cap there is the eye definer which works like a lipstick, you have to twist the barrel. When you start to apply it on your eyes you'll see that it is softer than pencils, somewhere between the liquid and the pencil eye liner. As it has so soft point it can be applied easily, you don't have to push it hard on your eyes for better result. If you would like to have smoky eyes use the smudge on the other end of the eye definer. If you prefer perfect line use the sharpener which is under the smudge and you can draw on the perfect line. I prefer using the smudge. This eye definer is available in emerald green, aqua sparkle, perfect plum, pink impact and noir colours. I bought myself the perfect plum as this colour highlights best my green eyes. I bought mine in Boots for 3.99 pounds but you can find them in supermarkets as well. This eye definer is waterproof which means that it lasts all day and it can't be removed simply with water. I use Nivea eye make-up remover which removes it easily. The eye definer is extremely light; it is written on the product that it's 0.28 g. I guess this is the weight of the eye definer's pin as the whole case is about 5-10 g. Despite Rimmel London being an English brand the product was made in Germany. It is advised to use it in 30 month after opening. This can be easily managed as I use it at least 3 times a week. The perfect plum colour really reminds me to the skin of the plum. I think this is a very versatile colour as I can use it with purple eye shadow but also with brown shades. I like that it makes my eyes look greener than they actually are and give them definition. The smudge is covered with a small transparent cap. If you touch it resembles you to a thick sponge. It is soft and helps you to smudge the line you draw on your eyes making the result smoky. The smudge is quite big so it took some time I got used to it. After a few applications the pin became flat and it was hard to apply it well so I had to use the sharpener. As there is no hard wood around the pin you can be very careful with the sharpener. It works easily. I cleaned the blades with a tissue after using it. It is very handy to have it right below the smudge. It is convenient and makes me feel that I got value for the money I spent on this product. Overall I am absolutely satisfied with it and I think I will try other colours too. My eyes are sensitive as I spend too much time in front of computers but I didn't face any irritation or extra sensitivity when using this eye definer.
I have been searching for the perfect eyeliner for years and this is the closest I have come to finding it. It being an automatic eyeliner, you don't have to sharpen it like a pencil and so it never blunts, and there is never the risk of a splinter in your eye. However it does mean that the eyeliner is never really fine (like after you've sharpened a pencil), but I prefer a wider tip so this is a benefit for me. The eyeliner is easy to use - it goes on smoothly without any clumps and provides full coverage with one clean sweep. It also comes with an eyeliner 'shaper' to correct any mistakes. The eyeliner is available in a range of colours. I use the black one and have found it highlights my eyes much better than many other eyeliners I have previously used. The colour is somehow more intense, possibly because it doesn't fade after a few blinks! Or maybe because of the wider tip providing more definition. This eyeliner is definitely the most durable that I've tried. It is not 100% perfect by the end of the day, but still looks good. It is reasonably waterproof too (although, again, not perfect). Previously I have had problems with allergic reactions to eyeliner, and have experienced no such problems with this product. This product is availabe from Boots for about £5. I bought it about 5 months ago and it hasn't run out yet despite daily use, so I think this is good value for money! I will definitely be buying it again.
I found two of these eye definers in a superdrug sale and guess how much they were? 10p and never been touched or used buy customers. I thought 'wow' what a bargain and it wouldn't really matter if the product was bad or not cause I paid nothing for it! I ended up buying both too! The colors I chose were a bright pink, and the color was strong, bold and really stood out, to make the color not so standing out there is a small brush on the end, however it does take most of the color off not leaving much eye definer color which is a pity and thought brushes were suppose to blend color in not take it off. However each time I applied, the end of the make-up kept breaking off, especially if you rolled the make-up up too far, so each time you apply you need to not roll it up too far. Even though the product says its waterproof, but it sort of feels like it but I was a bit disappointed as it didn't work as well as most waterproof make-up. The original price of this product must had been about three or four pounds, you can find it Supedrug and Boots for the same price. Overall, this product was a good buy, well for 10p it must be, I would buy this again, but maybe try another color like black, brown, blue or green. But I didn't like the fact that it kept breaking and it ran out quickly, but if you see this cheap as I did then you may want to try it.
As I have said in some of my previous reviews I am a make up addict and love to have my eyes as my focus area. Unless I am having a day with the appearance of not much make up I will usually have eye liner on. If you have read any of my other make up reviews you will know that I am not particularly loyal to a brand or product and pick things up that take my fancy. The one exception to this is that whenever I buy eye liner it HAS to be the rimmel Exaggerate Automatic Waterproof Eye Definer in black. I absolutely adore this eye liner It is about the size of a pen and is thin. It is all black and silver. At the bottom end you can pull the lid off to reveal a little sharpener and a smudger if you require that. I find that I don't have to sharpen the eye liner often but it is a handy little tool to have if you do need to do this as it gives your liner a defined point once more for a thinner line of eye liner. When you pull the lid off you have a thin tube where the eye liner is encased. You need to twist the main body of the liner to expose the pencil. This is great as you can expose as much of it as you wish. On a couple of occasions I have exposed too much and left a lump of eye liner either on my eye or on my cream carpet! Neither is pretty! I find that the liner goes on perfectly over my eye shadow and works well on both the upper and lower eye. It glides on easily and more importantly to me lasts ALL DAY!!! So many pencil eye liners smudge and wear off over the day but this one lasts and when I work long shifts this is essential for me. I think it costs around £4.50 but it is really worth it and lasts a long time.
What an absolutely fantastic product! So far, I have been nothing but impressed with it. I bought it about three weeks ago after getting a recommendation from a friend. I usually find that, with eyeliners, I put them on my eye and, within an hour, there is none remaining. However, this product was different! I have used a large range of eyeliners before and, out of all of them, this one has to have been the best! It is very easy to apply, and it has the added bonus of a smudger (?) and pencil sharpener on one end! Although, I haven't had to sharpen it yet... so far, it's remained in very good condition! Another good thing about it is the fact that it doesn't snap! The thing I have found with most eyeliners, is that they snap! You use them for a few weeks, and they break. However, this one is completely different.
