You can save a lot of time with these dual purpose eye crayons.

As you probably are aware, Rimmel came out earlier with their Magnif’Eyes Doubled Ended Shadow + Liner crayons.  PR kindly sent all five in this line so that I could share my thoughts about them with you.

One side has a twisting end of creamy Stay True Eye Shadow while the other has the 24HR Kohl Kajal Liner for quick application. The colors are 001 Back to Blacks, 002 Kissed by a Gold Rose, 003 Queens of the Bronzed Age, 004 Dark Side of Blue, and 005 Pink & Purple Rain.

Starting on the left is (003) Queens of the Bronzed Age, (004) Dark Side of Blue,  (005) Pink & Purple Rain, (001) Back to Blacks, and ending with (002) Kissed by a Gold Rose on the right.  


These shadow/liner crayons are well-pigmented with a lovely gleam to a barely visible degree of a shimmer to the shadows and rich, intense color for the liners. Furthermore, the texture of these crayons makes for easy blending whether using alone or coordinating with the other shades. However, I warn you to use gentle pressure because that these crayons are also extremely soft and can break when too much force is used.

For the most part, I thought Magnif’Eyes Double Ended Shadow + Liner was a wonderful time saving eye product.  I liked how quick this crayon was to apply for speedy makeup in addition to how it never creased and lasted until I went to take it off at the end of my day. While those things are wonderful, this crayon also has room for improvement as far as the packaging of the bullet is concerned.

When these products arrived one of mine (Kissed by a Gold Rose) came with the shadow end wedged high, ramming against the top of the clear cap.  Once uncapped, it broke off the bullet, which shaved off the shadow end, leaving me with just a workable liner tip.  However, a second one with the Dark Side of Blue also gave me a problem with its clear plastic cap.  The cap was so tightly wedged on that crayon that my attempt to remove it resulted in beheading the blue liner.  I think this packaging could be better and needs redesigning because when you spend money for a product, then you want to be able to use it, not need to return or toss it just afterwards.

Have you tried any of the Rimmel Magnif’Eyes Double Ended Shadow + Liner Collection yet?  Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think.
