Rimmel Flash Eyeliner (review)

(This last photo was taken after a day of wearing the eyeliner, as you can see, the colour's still strong and the line hasn't been broken, the small smudges are hardly noticable)
What they say: Versatile felt tipped pen liquid liner, easier to apply than traditional liquid liners, continuous and controlled flow, fine-tip for precise lines, long-wearing, smudge and transfer resistant.
Colour: Black
Rating: * * * * *
There’s nothing worse than a bad eyeliner, drawing the perfect line for it to be smudged within an hour, ruining your whole look. (Well, that’s what I think anyway.) So it’s really important to have a good eyeliner you can wear every day.  That’s where Rimmel Flash Eyeliner comes into things.
It’s not much to look at, a plain red with a black lid and block black writing with the Rimmel symbol. My one complaint would be that, on mine, the writing has rubbed off, but this isn’t really a huge problem.
I’ve always preferred a felt tipped pen as they’re normally easy to apply and get a good shaped line with, Rimmel Flash eyeliner has the perfect shaped tip, the fine end makes it easy to draw thin lines whilst, by using the whole pen, you can create an edgy thick line.
The colour comes out bold straight away, with no need for layering up. The best thing is, it stays this way for hours and hours. I rarely find the line has broken or blurred, admittedly, I occasionally find a few smudges in the crease of my eyelids, but this could be due to the amount of eye make-up I’m wearing that day.
All in all, I’d highly recommend this product to anyone. I rarely agree completely with what the manufacture says about their product, but I have to say, Rimmel have got it pretty spot on here.
