Rimmel Scandaleyes Eyeshadow Paint Berry Chrome - Swatch and Review

A few weeks ago, I purchased this cream eyeshadow at K-Mart. Had I known then that K-Mart was going to close down, I would've waited for it to go on sale but even at regular price, it's still pretty inexpensive.

  • It comes in a tube with a doe foot applicator. 
  • .23 oz or 7 ml

  • Berry Chrome is a medium dark shimmery reddish plum with pink shimmers.
  • The formula is pigmented and dries fairly quick. Previously, I had tried the shade Pomegranate, which I really loved but for some reason Berry Chrome applied a bit blotchy. Whether I use my fingers or a brush to blend it out, I get about the same result. You can definitely add another layer if you feel the need to but I wouldn't do more than that. 
  • I have moderately oily lids and without a primer, I was happy to see that it didn't crease when worn up to 8 hours. There was some slight fading but it wears longer with a primer. 

Final Thought

This cream eyeshadow had a lovely color and nice pigmentation. It applied slightly blotchy but I don't find it noticeable from afar. Otherwise, it wears fairly long and doesn't crease.

Rating: 8/10

Price: $5.29
Availability: K-Mart


  1. Such a pretty shade, bummer about the blotchy application though. I recently received some of these to try out and I'm liking them a lot! I don't really have anything like it, so I wasn't expecting the formula to be so thin, yet pigmented. I will have to pick up that Pomegranate shade though, so gorgeous!

    1. The pomegranate shade was much more even and prettier too. Glad to hear you're liking the ones you tried.

  2. I have one and I really didn't like it. It's so patchy. I can make it work but it takes much more work and blending than other cream shadows so I'd rather use something better x

    1. Yea this shade does take a bit of work. I didn't have that problem with the other color so I was hoping this would work too.

  3. It's such a vibrant cranberry shade! It reminds me so much of pomegranate punk from maybelline! I really wanted that shade but it's not found here in singapore!

    1. I think this shade is a little brighter than Pomegranate Punk. It's a shame it was patchy cause I love the color.
