If you thought that my other St. Patrick's Day look was a little too out there then I hope that this look will be a little more exciting for you! I was in Ulta the other day to pick up a green L'Oreal Infalliable shadow but I wasn't actually as impressed as I was with how it looked online, in person. I walked past Rimmel's products and saw these Scandal Eyes shadow sticks and was slightly confused because I had actually never heard of these before!

They are definitely a competitor for NYX's Jumbo eye pencils because of size and price (these are about $4.50, depending where you shop) but the products are both a bit different in feel and longevity.

I got the color 'Gossip Green' for this St. Patrick's look but I will definitely be back to get a few others. They have a selection of colors that you can definitely find one that you want! There's a purple, white, gray, black, blue and more!

swatches L to R: Sephora eyeliner in Green, Rimmel Scandal Eyes in Gossip Green and NYX Jumbo eye pencil in Rocky Mountain Green
Those were the only two green eyeshadow sticks or eyeliners that I owned so I just put them all side-by-side.

The Scandal Eyes apply much smoother than the NYX Jumbo eye pencils, but do not blend as well. They BLEND well but they will not hold their color while blending. That can be good or bad! Just depends on the look you're going for.

and for a more understated St. Patty's look, just wear a green liner or shadow stick on your bottom lash line! Gives your eyes a festive twist without going too overboard :)

Products used:
  • Urban Decay 'Sin' and 'Hustle' eyeshadows on the lid
  • Rimmel London Scandal Eyes shadow stick in 'Gossip Green' on lower lashline
  • Maybelline EyeStudio gel liner
  • Maybelline Megaplush mascara
