Rimmel Glam Eyes HD Review

Hey everyone, so I am trying to get through a number of products to review for you guys and so I decided I would bring you my thoughts on the relativley new Rimmel Glam Eyes HD Eyeshadow palettes. Now I really love some of Rimmels products and I find that for the price they are quite smooth in application and texture but also they have a great colour pay off-especially their eye kohl pencils. So once I tried the tester for these babies in store, I was hooked I wanted every single palette but I held back and decided on two of the five that were there and I'm glad I didn't get them all. WHY?? Well as great as the colours and consistency of the eyeshadows the packaging is in my opinion horrendous!!!



So I picked up 005 English Rose and 006 Purple Reign. English Rose has a pinky-gold shade along with a brown and taupey shades and Purple Reign is just that a range of purples. The colours are absolutley gorgeous they are amazing on but getting to the little triangles with your brush doesn't help unless you use the sponge applicator tip to get in there but you still manage to get into the other color.
The Rimmels emblem of the union jack didn't work well as the colours are really to get to- except for the color in the middle which is in my opinion very annoying. But for the eyeshadows alone they are amazingly smooth and soft, hardly any fall out and they last a long time, (I have only worn these over my NYX eyeshadow base). In the whole range I find the colours are amazing and some of them actually remind of a few colours in the Urban Decay Naked palette. I would only recommend these to you who don't mind the challenge of getting to the colours in the smaller triangles but I really wish Rimmel had these palettes differently even the old style square quad would have been forgivable for such great eyeshadow quality.



What do you guys think? Have you tried these? Whats your favourite Rimmel product?

  9. I happen to like the way the colors are. I think it looks really cute. That type of packaging, however, often feels very cheap, which I don't like. I've never tried these products, but I don't necessarily have the urge to. Thanks for your very honest review :)
