Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal
TIPS FOR SHARPENING
I would have given this product a 5/5 but, like you may have read in other reviews, there is no way that they recommend to properly sharpen this eyeliner. The best tip I have to keep using this product instead of actually sharpening is to break off the end of the eyeliner and use a q tip to push up the product. I tried other tools to push it up and q tips work the best. This product is great and cheap and the only negative is the sharpening part of it. So I guess my title isn't accurate but I knew I would get more attention to show others the best tip to continue using this product when they need to get more of it after only a few days of using it. Hope I have helped some of you!!

For a product that is under $10 this eye liner definitely supplies the most bang for your buck. I had two events in one day one in the morning and one in the evening. I wore this eye liner and in between events I fell asleep on my couch in my office. When I woke up I immediately ran to a mirror fearing the damage I would have to repair! Imagine my surprise when I looked in the mirror and my eyeliner had barely budged and trust me that's a testament to the quality because I am a rough sleeper! Thanks rimmel! Now that's I've found the product just don't discontinue it! Thanks!!!

Can not sharpen!
I love love loved it up until I needed to sharpen it and it will not the sharpen what so ever. So I still have about 3/4 of the brown pencil that is still unused and now I can not use. ;(
Stinks because I am afraid to open the black one I bought last month just to see if its a fluke and maybe I should just return it.

I like this product very much especially the Sparkly Black. It stays for most of the day without reapplying. The first week of use was great...nice discreet lines. My only question is how to effectively sharpen it. Firstly there are no directions for sharpening. When I did use my regular sharpener it mangled the edges making it sharp when applying it. The lines are no longer applied as I like them. Previous purchases were discarded soon after use due to sharpening issues.
I see many other comments on this same issue. I am surprised this has not been addressed by Rimmel. I would give this product all 5's if there was a sharpening tool included or at least addressed on the packaging.

Good for thick lines difficult to make thin lines
I got the black pencil which is very dark and nice. I found that it makes thicker lines even when I sharpen it. I like a winged out eyeliner and it makes it very difficult to make that nice thin line that I'm going for. Although it's pretty smooth I feel like it's hard to get a perfectly straight line. It's not difficult to sharpen like other reviewers said, it's really easy to sharpen and I had no problems. So the cons would be that it's not good for making thin lines and is a little difficult to get crisp straight lines.

Great product, hard to sharpen and no instructions on how to do so!
I am in love with this product. It is easy to apply and is truthfully one of the best eyeliners I've ever used. The only downside is that it is hard to sharpen, and doesn't come with any instructions that tell you how to do so. I was so disappointed once I had used up the tip and went to sharpen it. It didn't completely fall apart, but refused to keep in the way that it came.
If anyone has any instruction as to how to sharpen it, please share! This is overall a great product that is just missing some instructions.

I wanted to use this product because everyone had so many good things to say. When I finally went out and bought it I was very excited. But after opening it i found I couldn't even drawn a line on the back of my hand. It was very hard and crumbly and I was very confused because I had heard how smooth It was supposed to be. I cant even get it to draw on my eyelids. I love the Rimmel brand but I am very sad about this product.

Great eyeliner when you finally figure out how to sharpen!
I used this eyeliner twice and loved it before my daughter decided to use it for a craft project as a color pencil which smushed the tip flat and I thought it was ruined. I tried to salvage this eyeliner since I liked it so much with a special sharpener from an art store, an exacto pen, and a couple eyeliner sharpeners. All of these just made a mess and left chunks of wood that would probably scrape my eyelids. I finally saw a post on this site from another reviewer who was able to sharpen the effing pencil without all the tools and mess. I broke the bottom piece off (the plastic piece under the silver ring where you might try to turn to sharpen) and slowly stuck the end of a skinny paintbrush stick which pushed the kohl out. I was so obsessed with figuring this out because I bought a couple other eyeliner pencils when I finally gave up and I didn't like any of them as much as this one. It goes on dark and smooth and stays put all day/night. I think this a bargain at $5 and now that I know how to sharpen it I will definitely be buying it again along with the other colors.

I've used this twice and when i put it on my lash line its smooth and beautiful and lasts for a long time. But i put on my waterline and by the end of the day, it was running down my lower lash line. It looked like i had raccoon eyes a little bit. So I am disappointed about how Rimmel claimed this is waterproof because personally i dont think this is. This is a nice eyeliner but not for a nice look on the waterline.

Pretty good product
I really like this eye pencil. It's creamy, the color is very intense and lasts all day. I wish there was a shade in green. It is difficult to sharpen but I hear that putting the pencil in the fridge/freezer for 5 or 10 minutes prior to sharpening helps. I need to try that. But Rimmel should offer a superior sharpener for this pencil since the shavings are so tough to break off with a regular sharpener. I give 8 stars out of 10!

will not sharpen
I do like this eyeliner, but it is a waste of money when you can only use it a few times because there is NO WAY to sharpen it. Rimmel - do something! Either make it easy to sharpen or create a sharpener that will work. Please.

Love/hate relationship with this eyeliner
I LOVE how this eyeliner goes on smooth and i love how it looks on but it doesn't sharpen well at all. I have gone thru two pencils just trying to get it to sharpen. The eyeliner breaks super easy and the pencil leaves jagged edges. I've tried several different sharpeners but none seem to work.

I love how smooth and dark it goes on and that it last all day.
The only thing that would make this product better, would be if it was easy to sharpen. Other than that I am in love with this pencil

I bought this last night & it has become my new favourite eyeliner!! I was using special eyes but it never stayed on the waterline for long! I was having to reapply.. Whereas scandal eyes is perfect! No smudges, it doesn't come off. Thank you rimmel for another fab product!

ADVANCING THE CRAYON
After racking my brain about the tip collapses and not being about to roll anymore into the cyclinder..... I sat and thought and then went to my husband's junk drawer and got a pipe cleaner. Took the end cap off and slowely push the pipe stick down into the cycliner slowly and it did an excellent job. Hope this helps you ladies --- Grammy 10/04/13

Best Eyeliner I've Ever Had!!
Where do I even begin?? I LOVE this liner! It's soft, I only have to line my waterline once, the color is super rich, and the price is amazing! It's not exactly 100% waterproof, but it's close! I don't have to reapply as often!
* I struggled at first with sharpening, but found that Prestige Eyeliner sharpener works best. I bought the sharpener for around $3 at my local grocery store.*
I can't wait to get back to the store and get more colors of this eyeliner!

ups and downs
This is an amazing eyeliner. It goes on super easy, stays on, and doesn't bother my eyes. It would be the perfect eyeliner if there were a way to sharpen it.

Review for Taupe
I love this in Taupe, please don't ever stop making this shade. I'm using it for a truly neutral lipliner. Sorry, but your liner colors all have way too much red in them. This is THE perfect neutral, wearable light brown for lip color!

I want to hear from Rimmel as to how best to sharpen Scandaleyes. I've tried everything and it keeps breaking and not leaving a nice point...very disappointing. It is quite soft and goes on easily. Just please fix the paper around the point so it comes off easily in a sharpener or can be removed easily by hand! The product itself is even better than Exaggerate.

I totally love this eyeliner.. It's not as waterproof as it says but it's soooo soft and you only need to go over it once !

Cannot Sharpen - 1 Time Use Product
I have tried nearly everything to sharpen, from a standard eyeliner sharpener (when that failed) to an electric sharpener. All I end up with is a flat tip and very sharp, broken plastic pencil that nearly cut my eye lid when I did try to use it.

I've tried a TON of different liners and this one is definitely my favorite. Once it sets, it stays put all day. I used to have to worry about my liners smudging and running, but not anymore!

Excellent product after the original coating at the tip is removed
I'm glad I read "Amazing"'s review. I, too, thought it was a waste of money since I couldn't sharpen the pencil. After reading the review, I tried sharpening again, with a little more effort. After the original outside coating at the tip was removed by sharpening, it was very easy to get a fine point again. Is the best liner for staying power.

I LOVE the color BROWN! It is waterproof and is very easy to sharpen. It gives me a little thicker line which I like and is creamy and smooth going on. It lasts all day and is my favorite eyeliner to date. I have tried nearly all drugstore and department store eye liners (liquid and pencil) throughout the years and have never stayed with one until now! I love the price too.

waste of money
I'm certain I would like this product if there was a means of advancing once what is visible is used up. It appears to be a one-time use only, which is an absurd waste of product/money/time. I do not recommend this product.

NUDE LINER IS AMAZING!!
As far as I know, this is one of the first nude drugstore liners. It costs under $5 and it's water proof! The nude color easily glides onto my waterline, and it's very pigmented! I think it could be compared to Tarte's EmphasEYES. Awesome!! I definitely will be repurchasing this!

Such amazing colour pay off!
These liners are fantastic, I especially love the black liner for enhancing my eyes and the nude liner for use on the waterline.
