rimmel scandaleyes shadow paint

I am the ultimate noob when it comes to applying eyeshadow, I don't know if it's the shape of my eyes or me just being incapable of doing a good job but I can never achieve a smokey eye. I've been trying out various different eyeshadow products recently to try build up my application skills & so far I've managed to work with cream shadows reasonably well, MAC Bare Study Paint Pot being one of my favourites. Scandaleye Shadow Paints are a new release from Rimmel which seem to have been really popular in the beauty blog world so of course when I spotted them on offer in Boots it was inevitable I would be walking to the till with one without a second thought! Whilst the shade range isn't great at all really, consisting of only five options that aren't the most wearable it's probably for the best because my bank balance would be doing a little cry right now! Rich Russet is a bronzey, chocolate brown kinda shade which I really, really like & can see this being the most popular shade. Application is easy peasy, with the long doe foot I coat my eyelid then use a blending brush to buff it in to hide any harsh lines & create a smokey effect.  The formula is thick & creamy, it feels quite cool & refreshing but dries quickly so you don't have long to work with it if you want to do some blending. Once it has set though it literally will not budge, Rimmel aren't kidding when they say it's crease-proof with upto 8 hours of wear time! I've been wearing Rich Russet everyday recently, it actually looks like I've spent some time on my eye makeup when only one product has been used to achieve a smokey eye!
