Before going nowhere fast on the treadmill the other day, I lined my lids with Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eye Definer in Deep Ocean.
Like the great Billy Idol once succinctly sang, it was nothing but “SWEAT, SWEAT, SWEAT!” After 40 minutes of running like I was being chased by aliens, I could have filled a bucket (eww!).
One of five shades in a new line of eyeliners, Deep Ocean has an automatic twist-up pencil tip (no need to sharpen, yay!), a striking rich blue tint and a great $6 price.
But (yep, there’s a but) after my run I checked the mirror and saw all sorts of cray-cray. The liner had faded to about half its initial intensity, and that’s the good news — there were also streaks in the crease, below my lashline and even on my cheeks (!). We’re talkin’ Amy Winehouse after she went rogue (gosh, what a waste of a beautiful voice).
Hmm… I haven’t been having the best luck with Rimmel’s latest waterproof eye stuff. Either my body produces some sort of mystery chemical that just doesn’t jive with their stuff, or the products in the line could use some fine tuning (or both).
Please let me know if you’ve had better luck with this than I have. It seems so good in theory… Available at drugstores and online at walgreens.com. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: C
