By Terry Crayon Khol Terrybly - 9 Royal Navy and Rimmel Scandal'Eyes Waterproof Eyeliner Bright Blue

Can never have too much blue right?  I've been itching to get the By Terry pencil ever since I saw it at DAF.  I picked up the Rimmel in an ASOS order to compare the shades and the result is they are completely different.

First off, yay no bad reaction from either unlike my last blue eyeliner.

I like the By Terry pencil more, it is super pigmented, glides on beautifully and stays put.  Only down side is it goes blunt faster than an other pencil I have ever tried.  

The Rimmel one is not bad, just not pigmented in practice (on eyes) and a bit dry.

I had a bit of a play with the blue liners and they made good bases for purple shadows that either disappear or look wrong on my skin.  Suqqu's Ruridama palette wasn't a very flattering palette for me and Royal Navy was the best base for it so I could get the purple (top right) colour to show as as purple (almost like the bottom left shade but better) and not cool tone greys.

I hope these swatches in different lighting and exposure are helpful.  My inner arm is a bit lighter than NC20, bottom picture makes me look tanned but that is because of low light.

  1. Whoa, these look so great. I don't wear blue liner nearly as often as I probably ought to. Sometimes I forget just how gorgeous it can be on the eyes.
