Rimmel haul

 Products: Rimmel the only one matte lipstick 'The matte factor'
                 Rimmel Scandal Eyes waterproof kohl kajal (001 black)
                 Rimmel soft kohl (011 sable brown)

The lipstick in encased in an attractive red tube. There is a band around the tube to indicate the color of the lipstick inside. The slanted lipstick bullet makes it easier to apply. The lipstick has a fruity smell of water melon but it just goes away once you have applied the lipstick. This is one lippie which although being matte, does not dry the lips. It is also highly pigmented and I didn't have to reapply for a good 5 hours. The lipstick can settle into the fine lines of the lips at the end of the day but it isn't so bad either [just rub the lips together and you are ok]. The lipstick costs 4 KD. So this is one lipstick which is affordable,pigmented, nondrying and long lasting.

I am equally happy with the eye pencils as well. 
The black kohl pencil is jet black and glides on the eye like a dream. The brown eye pencil is also good. They didn't smudge and make me look like a racoon at the end of the day. The kohl pencil is waterproof and not oil proof which means that if you have oily eyelids, they can smudge. A solution to this is to apply a good generous coat of compact powder on the eyelids before using the eyeliners. I, for one, do not line my waterline so I do not know how it will perform if you do so. 

The black liner is a pencil and has a transparent cap. The brown liner is also a pencil but the cap is a normal brown colored cap. The price of the black eye pencil is 2KD while the brown one costs 2.6KD. Both were really good and held throughout the day.
