If you can’t get your hands on the Rimmel Scandaleyes eye pencils that have taken the beauty world by storm, you can get the exact same results from the Astor Artist Kajal. These are the kind of “gel in a pencil” type products, giving you the wear of a gel liner without the fuss. Granted, these aren’t going to be as precise as a gel on a brush, but they hold up great on both waterlines and are my go-to products for a smudge-resistant eyeliner.
The two formulas are basically identical, I guess because both are made by Coty- I use them interchangeably. Unfortunately, though, Astor does not have the shade range that Rimmel does- including the Nude and Taupe. This really does suck because the Taupe shade is one of my favorite pencils ever. However, if you are in need of a long-wearing, creamy black eyeliner and can’t get the Rimmel one, the Astor one should work well.
