This Rimmel Glam’ Eyes Quad in 003 Smokey Purple looks incredible in the pan. The Colours look like they would make (as the name suggests) a pretty smokey purple eye. I was excited to try and recreate a cute smokey eye, but these shadows didn’t make that very easy.
The shadows were chalky and I found it very hard to pick up any colour on my brush. The pigmentation was also lacklustre and the lighter two colours almost have no pigmentation. I wanted it to be good as I thought it would be ideal for travel as the packaging is small and sleek. It’s not!
Even looking at it in these photos I keep thinking you look so pretty and the texture of the shadows with that quilted look. It could have been so much more.
Have you tried any Rimmel shadows? I have a few Mono shadows and a particular favourite of mine is 140 Precious Rose. I use this very soft pink as an all over the lid colour or with a darker eye look in the outer corner to brighten the eye and it has good pigmentation, but this quad was dire and I won’t be purchasing any more. I also wouldn’t recommend it.
