The Thick & Thin pen boasts an amazing 3D felt tip that goes from sleek slick to fine flick depending on how you hold it – it’s all you need to get the on-trend Sixties look. It delivers ultra-black, ultra-smooth, ultra-resistant colour that dries in seconds and lasts 24 hours.Dermatologist and ophthalmologist-tested "
How to Use :Use the fine nib to create a precise line and the slant on the applicator to create a thick line. 

When i read the claims , i was super thrilled, i mean  3D felt tip ,  lasts 24 hours, ultra-black, ultra-smooth, ultra-resistant colour. It was like any eyeliner lover's dream coming true .I am a person who finds con in every product no matter how bad it is, same happened with this eyeliner. I had high hopes since rimmel makes some really nice eyeliner (read-Exaggerate Eye Liner) .So first thing first , It is not really pigmented , you need to at least draw few lines to It claims to be waterproof, I don't know about that since it comes of pretty easy with a wet tissue for me.One other thing which puts me off is that usually felt tip eyeliner pens are really easy to use, like smash box limitless liquid eyeliner or even essence eyeliner pen gave me pretty smooth application  , But not with RIMMEL ScandalEyes Thick & Thin Eye Line. The liner applies patchy and if you are in hurry , this thing wont help.
I find this liner helpful only when i am wearing a gel liner and i want a thin flick, then this works really well, Since it has a 3D tip so you can choose whether you want a thick or a thin liner and I also find it great to use the thin side to get into the corner of eyes and the thicker side  is great to wing it out.







 




  • if you are starting out with eyeliner looks.
  •  Teenagers/College student student-if you are looking for an everyday wear eyeliner .
  • The 3D tip is fantastic , you can choose whether you want a thick or a thin liner and I also find it great to use the thin side to get into the corner of eyes and the thicker side  is great to wing it out.


 




  • If you are looking for a blackest black, smooth , pigmented eyeliner.
  • If you are looking for long wearing,waterproof eyeliner.
  • If you don't like applying it over and over it to make it perfect.
  • If you want smooth line, since the liner comes out patchy
  • If you want a perfect cat eye look then the 3D slant of the tip work great for that.


Over all i think there are better alternatives available in the market if you are looking for eyeliner pen, like essence eyeliner pen is pretty good and costs less. This is the second eyeliner which disappointed me in last couple of months, first being the essence stay no matter what eyeliner pencil, which to be honest is total waste of money(details later). 
RIMMEL ScandalEyes Thick & Thin Eye Liner is available at just4girls.pk  for rs 995  , boots (online) £5.49
