I really like rimmel but ...
I bought this a few months ago, I was really exited because rimmel is one of my favorite brands. It looked pretty in the package, but the eye shadow didn't show on my face at all.
This product nearly made me cry... i ordered this of the net, because i couldn't find my wanted shade in any drugstore near me. - So when i finally got it, i was devastated. i had to litteraly RUB my brush into the shadow, to pickup any color, and then it had a crazy amount of fall out, but that wasn't the end of it. Because the color that i got onto my lid, was so very sheer, that it barely showed up on my lid... i tried with several different eyebases, but nothing worked...
one of the best i have used in years.
I love this trio palatte. I have it in Maritime and Orion. I mostly use the Orion because i love the natrual look. Its great for smoky eye or just follow with the light color as a highlight, middle color in the crase, and dark on the lid. Any way you want you really cant go wrong.
this eyeshadow is really nice for smokey eyes, but also just one of the single colours. I use it a lot, and the colours just fit each other well. It's a nice and natural look you can create with these eyeshades! :)
Great for the ££
I really like the colours, I used this all the time last year creating a simple/natural smoky eye for work everyday. i really liked the look but after an 8 hour shift i did notice the staying power wasn't amazing. The creamy colour was my favourite it makes for a lovely highlight. the medium slightly shimmery brown colour wasn't that intense so i had to layer it up quite a bit though the matte darker brown was softer and much more intense, i also used this occasionally as a brow shadow. All in all not bad for the price.
Not very impressive...too light
I got all of the palettes when they were deeply discounted last spring at Walgreen's. I also had a bunch of coupons, so I did not spend alot of money....only about $1 each.
That being said, the colors look beautiful in the packaging, but are very weak on my skin. Even using primer and a solid white base, it took way too many layers of this shadow to show up.
I gave these to my daughters to play dress-up with, I have no use for these. Before I let my daughter's at them, I tried some of the colors on a friend with a very pale complexion and this didn't show up on her very well either.
What a disappointment.
I love blue eyeshadows!
I got this as a gift for winning a contest on YouTube, and I absolutely love this trio! It's pigmented, very buildable, and it's all shimmer! I also like the sponge brush applicator that comes with it, it's a unique shape to fit my lids! I like that it's packaging is light and sleek, and it can fit in my wallet if I really needed it to! I have never bought a Rimmel product, so this was a nice chance to try one of their products.
