Rimmel Glam Eyes Eyeshadow

Rimmel eyeshadows have never really attracted my attention before. I usually buy eyeshadows in palettes but  this colour was too gorgeous to pass over. It looks like a plain old shimmery brown but somehow it's so much more... Maybe I'm looking into this too deep! Smokey Quartz just caught my eye.

Like a said before, a shimmery, cool toned brown. But what I love about this is that it is light enough to be worn all over the lid. At 7.00 in the morning when I'm getting ready for college, it is rare I can be bothered to  be blending multiple colours over my eyes. I can apply all over my lid and be done with it.

The shadow is buttery smooth, nicely pigmented, and easy to blend. All for the price £4.49, lovely! I always use an eyeshadow base, there's just no point applying them otherwise with my oily lids. Used over a MAC Paint Pot, my usual choice of base, it lasts all day.

As for the packaging, it's simple, strong, easy to store. Easy to see the product inside. There is a bit of unneeded plastic going on there but otherwise it's all good.

Have any of you tried Rimmel's eyeshadows? Do you prefer to buy single shadows or palettes?



  1. I've tried a few Rimmel eyeshadows over the years and I must say they always seem to be very smooth and provide good, even coverage :)
    This is a lovely 'neutral' and rich colour for Autumn this year especially!
