I came across the Glam Eyes series by Rimmel when I was walking around Wal-Mart’s make-up section. I couldn’t resist trying them out because they look so cute and I loved all the vivid/bright colours.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Rimmel introduces Glam’Eyes Mono Eyeshadow, a new eye shadow collection inspired by the sophistication of the London fashion scene. Soft, silky formula for smooth and saturated colour. This eyeshadow has got a long-lasting wear without creasing or fading so your perfect shade lasts as long as you do.
*High colour
*Glitter eyeshadow.

FOR BEST RESULT
Use a primer for this eyeshadow cause I found that the colours that I’ve tried doesn’t last very long.

INGREDIENTS

WHY I LIKE THIS PRODUCT
I only like this product, I can’t say that I loved it. For most parts, Rimmel wasn’t lying when they said these were crease-resistant and easily blendable. The colours are great and vivid and stays true to what they look like in the box. The shadow also applies really smooth, however, I would not use the applicator that’s included with the shadow cause it’s very cheap looking and it’s not the best qualities. Plus, the shadow is very affordable! If I remember correctly, it was around $3 CAD in Wal-Mart.

However, the shadow doesn’t last very long. In about 4 hours, the colour starts to fade, which does not support the product’s claim to last for up to 8 hours. Perhaps it’s better to use a primer prior to this product. Both Night Jewel and Posh Peacock are very pigmented, but Royal Violet is very powdered! The swatch that I made on my hand was done over and over again. So I would stay away from the Royal Violet but definitely try out the other two. Another negative is that this product is a mono eyeshadow, so if you want variety, don’t bother trying this.

Have you tried any of the new Glam’eyes shadows yet?

RATING
Product (4/5) – Royal Violet is very powdered thus, results vary.
Cost (5/5)
Ease of Use (4/5) – The product comes with a very cheap applicator, it’s better to use your own brushes.
Packaging (5/5)
