Rimmel Bad Girl Bronze ScandalEyes Shadow Stick Review+Swatches

Rimmel ScandalEys Eyeshadow Sticks are "rich intense colour" that "applies in a flash. Creamy formula blends effortlessly for a luminous finish. Jumbo applicator creates a dramatic look in just one stroke. Can be used as an eyeshadow or eyeliner." Rimmel recently explanded the ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Stick shade range from nine to fifteen colors! Today, I'm reviewing Bad Girl Bronze. Each of Rimmel's cream shadow crayons contain 3.25 grams (.11 oz) and cost about $4.50 each. Sadly, Rimmel is not cruelty free. This product was made in France.

Rimmel's ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Sticks are pretty basic, they come in black wooden pencils with a clear cap and color matched plastic base. The product name and shade name are printed on the pencil in silver lettering. These eyeshadow crayons sharpen very smoothly, but of course you'll need a double barrel sharpener. Packaging is recyclable.
Rimmel's ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Sticks are probably my favorite cream eyeshadows of all time - but I don't like Bad Girl Bronze as much as the other shades that I've tried. This cream shade is quite smooth and creamy, gliding on to the eyelid with ease. Blending is where Bad Girl Bronze starts to go south. This shade sheers out way more than the other three ScandalEyes crayons I've tried. Whether I use my fingers or a brush, Bad Girl Bronze blends unevenly, and the shimmer turns out particularly patchy. Bad Girl Bronze also wears poorly compared to the rest of the ScandalEyes Shadow Sticks. On it's own, Bad Girl Bronze creases within minutes and is easily smeared. Setting this cream shadow with a powder eyeshadow greatly improves wear time, though it could still be better - I only get six hours or so before it starts to crease. In spite of all the problems with staying power I just mentioned, Rimmel's Bad Girl Bronze somehow manages to cling to it's water resistant claim - it can be a real pain to remove and it usually leaves behind a stain.
Bad Girl Bronze is a nice, basic color. This is a medium, warm, copper brown with plentiful gold shimmer. This isn't really a bronze shade to me. Bad Girl Bronze has a pretty strong red undertone to it that makes it unflattering on me on it's own, but I like to pair it with MAC's Cranberry, and Urban Decay's Snakebite and Suspect. 
Bad Girl Bronze is the first of Rimmel's ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Sticks to disappoint me. It has the same great, cream texture that I really love, but it wears so poorly on me. At first swipe, Bad Girl Bronze seems super pigmented, but it sheers out to a patchy disaster. So I don't recommend this particular eyeshadow crayon, but as a whole, I do recommend and personally adore Rimmel's ScandalEyes Eyeshadow Sticks.
