I’ve got some exciting news girlies!!!! If you have been watching my videos you know that I have a love/hate relationship with Nars Hollywood eyeshadow pencil. It made my “August Favorites and What the Heck” video. If you missed it here it is:
Anyway, I love Nars in general, but I hate their Soft Touch Eyeshadow Pencil formula. The colors are gorgeous, especially Hollywood, which is a golden champagne color. However, the darn thing will not stay! It creases before it ultimately disappears, all within an hour of application. I tried everything, absolutely everything I could think of, to make the shadow pencil work for me. I used it with Nars primer, I topped it with powder eyeshadow, I put it over powder and finally I had some success putting it over wet mineral eyeshadow and topping it with Urban Decay’s All Nighter Spray. That’s a lot of work for a $24 eyeshadow pencil. Understandably I was on the hunt for a dupe and, I’m happy to report, I found one!!!
Introducing Rimmel London ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Stick in Bulletproof Beige. Its a dead ringer for Nars Hollywood eyeshadow pencil. Take a look at the swatches.
Cant’ tell the difference, can you??? Which is which? Its Rimmel on the left and Nars on the right. Its a dupe!!!
Rimmel’s eyeshadow pencils are great. The ones that I have tried draw on creamy and blend easily. They are supposed to last 24 hours and be waterproof and smudgeproof. While I can attest to the fact that they stay put for hours and do not smudge on me, I must admit that I have never worn them for the full 24 hours, nor have I went swimming in them. They definitely deliver on staying put for the duration of your day though.
Nars eyeshadow pencils retail for $24 and Rimmel eyeshadow pencils are a steal at less than $5. You can pick Rimmel Shadow Pencils for $4.49 here .
I’m so excited about this find. I can barely contain myself, and I saved $20!! You can’t beat that!!!
