Review: Scandal Eyes Thick and Thin Eyeliner

Another review today! This time is the Scandaleyes eyeliner. As far as I know it is not too old a product and when I bought it, it was £3.99 on introductory offer at Boots.

Before this, I had the Seventeen gel liner which was in all honesty, not great. I had tried to prevent myself wasting money and tried to finish the gel liner but it was impossible. I HAD to get another eyeliner. 

I haven't actually used liquid liners in quite a long time. I've used gel liners ever since the Maybelline one came out but felt like I should try liquid liners again.
Look, feels and works like a pen.
For some reason, I've lost my ability to draw on eyeliner properly this year after my makeup boycot, so I'm glad Rimmel brought out a liquid liner that feels just like a pen. It's easy to use, I'll give you that.

One of the annoying things about this is that it doesn't have a great staying power, especially if you have oily lids. My tip would be to go over it with a khol liner or some eye shadow but to be honest, I want my eyeliners to stay put on their own.
The line on the right hand side is draw with the tip of the felt tip so as you can see, it doesn't really create a "thin" line so the thick and thin name is a bit off. This actually put me off the liner quite a bit since I can't do flicks very easily with the thick tip.

Overall, I haven't really made up my mind about this liner because it's so easy to use. I'm not sure if I'd buy this again but I'll update when I use it a few more times!

Pick your own!

We headed to a local-ish farm to pick some fruits and veg recently because it was randomly sunny. It was very late to be picking since the summer fruits season has pretty much ended but it was a nice day so who cares right?
Sadly, there wasn't much left in the fields so we didn't really have a fruitful picking session (pun intended) :(, definitely going to go earlier next year!
I had this amazing drink from the farm shop. This bottle looks so vintage so I had to take a photo to commemorate. It wasn't ridiculously expensive either, which of course is another plus.
Tastes like roses, sparkles like lemonade=perfect
