Dupe: MAC 'Black Swan' Pearlglide pencil VS. Rimmel 'Sparkling Black' ScandalEyes Kajal

Greetings from the Dark Side~!

I made a brief post on my Facebook about this possible product dupe. I thought I would post it here anyways for those who do not follow me on Facebook. I found that a product I owned was a really good dupe for the 'Black Swan' pearlglide pencil liner from the new MAC Archie's Girls collection. The MAC pencil costs $16.50 while the Rimmel ScandalEyes is about $3-$5. 

As you can see below, the two pencils  are both black with silver sparkles. The MAC one (on the right) is a bit creamier and more intense than the Rimmel one (on the left), but they are very close. Plus, when they are worn on the eyes, they look almost identical. $16.50 for a product I could get for 4 times less money was not worth it for me. I immediately returned 'Black Swan'. So if you missed out on 'Black Swan' or thought it was too expensive, now you have an alternative dupe :)


  1. Wow, nice dupe! Does the Rimmel one wear like MAC's?

    1. I can't say for sure since I returned it almost right away. I didn't notice much of the difference in wear for the most part. I have no issues with the Rimmel one, it applies smoothly and lasts all day on my eyes. The MAC one applied smoothly too and didn't crease or smudge on my eyes.

  2. Oooh pretty, I'm going to have to keep an eye out for that shade. I'm a sucker for sparkly eyes.
