      Disadvantages

      A so so eyeshadow!

      Before I get stuck into writing this review I would just like to explain something to you! Dooyoo have asked me to pop my review here although the product I am reviewing is slightly different to what is shown on the top of this review page. The packaging is the same but instead of getting one block colour you do get a main colour but in the middle of if you get another colour in the shape of a crown so effectively you do get two colours however they are still called mono eyeshadows so there isn't really another link available for these!

      Anyway..Moving On lol....

      I have been recently getting ready for Christmas. Being on a tight budget and with many people to buy for I knew I needed to make as much headway as possible and asap. One of my little gift ideas was to make up little make up sets for my girlfriends. I'm a qualified beauty therapist and I adore make up so this is great fun for me to do as well as nice for them...hopefully!

      I was in my local Poundland store looking for little bits of suitable and branded make up when I spotted three Rimmel eyeshadow colours, all individually packaged giving me three different colour options in a bag for a pound. I was delighted as I know two people that will suit the colours I was given plus the third one became mine as I was looking for that shade for myself for ages so I was right pleased!

      The Packaging:

      Each colour (colours in my case) is deeply set into a black plastic bottom and plastic see through and hinged lid. On the lid and in white writing we are told that it is Rimmel London and then on the base of it we are told the colour (my option is Tempted, 020), the weight is stated which is 2.4g and contact details for Rimmel are given. Its a nice easy to open little case, robust enough though no applicator is given or anything like that. the writing on the top of it does scratch off so you do need to be careful with it if you want it to stay looking as good as new but I do approve very much of the hinged lid!

      The Mono:

      As I stated earlier although I bought the mono but I got 2 colours in each of mine, I can only assume its a special addition. So in my little case I get and outer colour of a dark and rich turquoise and then a crown shape in a slightly shimmery and totally contrasting purple. You can of course use them together or alone or whatever its just up to you to provide an applicator...or two...which again I will come on to in just a second if I may!

      Using them is easy enough. I use two different brushes, one per colour to not get them crossed and interfere with the shade given of each. I can use them one at a time, for a bold and evening look blend them together and they are richly pigmented colours these and a fine powder that blend very well over the eyes and I like them well enough really. They don't irritate my sensitive eyes and they stay put with no fade or crease for a good few hours. I have used better quality and longer lasting eyeshadows than these but the colours I got (all three of them remember) are all evening party colours and I have used mine when out in a hot and sticky pub for a few hours and they stayed put really well for that time and I experience no issues at all.

      However two completely different colours in one case is a bit of a nightmare really. You do need two brushes when using them and to be careful not to get one colour sprinkled into the other or you lose the vividness of the colours and the clean look on the eye and you really can't help it when in use getting the colours mixed up with eachother which is just so annoying! I also have to gently wipe over my powders with a clean cloth and/or blow the compact out before putting it away which is so annoying!

      For me the application process is easy, the colours, although loud in the colour options I got are nice and unusual and a bit fun and they last long enough and if your not happy with the length of time they stay on the lids you can do what I do and pop a primer underneath to really make them stay put. However I would rather one colour per compact in the future Rimmel!

      Available in all good chemists etc, mine were a deal from Poundland but expect to pay around £4.00 usually for just one of these!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A nice eye-shadow range

        I generally go by the rule that you shouldn't dress up your eyes and lips at the same time, and seeing as I prefer to have my eyes stand out than my lips I own a huge range of brands and colours in the eye-shadow department, and am forever buying new ones, especially when on offer. One of the brands I own a few items from is Rimmel, London.

        === Price and Availability ===

        Rimmel is a well known make-up brand and is available in the majority of shops that stock make-up from Boots and Superdrugs to supermarkets. I suppose I would class them as a mid range make-up brand leaning towards expensive in regards to price. In the majority of stores these mono eye-shadows retail between £3.49 - £4.00 for the single colour ones, but are often on offer in 'buy 2, get one free' type offers. I however picked up my two latest ones from a discount shop for a mere 89p each! Bargain! The downside of buying in discount type places is that they often have a limited range of colours.

        === Using the Eye-shadow ===

        The two colours I recently purchased were a dark purple colour and another one which was more of a white colour. I like to own a white eye-shadow which I use as a sort of highlighter, and to blend in with other colours.

        Both of the colours that I own have the typical Rimmel crown emblem in the eye-shadow itself (the picture doesn't show this). Despite using both colours fairly often over the past couple of months I've still not even worn away the crown, which suggests to me that these eye-shadows are going to last me a long time. The eye-shadows do not come with any sort of applicator so be prepared to have your own, but they are applied really easily and smoothly. I like to blend my colours, and these Rimmel ones blend really well. The dark purple and white blended together give a look I love, as does blending purple with a charcoal grey for a more smoky evening look. I have also blended my Rimmel eye-shadows with other brands with ease.

        Once applied, the colour lasts for hours and I don't find myself having to constantly reapply. The colour does fade, but only slightly if worn all day. I think this eye-shadow has good staying power in comparison to many of the other brands out there. The staying power can be even better if you choose to use a mist/spray that fixes your make up.

        === Packaging ===

        These eye-shadows come in a small container with a black base and a clear lid. On the bottom of the base there is some information about the product, including shade name, etc, and some information on contacting Rimmel. The lid is attached by a hinge, which is great as it means you're not going to misplace the lid - something I'm sure I would do!

        === Summary ===

        Overall, a good product. Easy to apply, lasts well when applied, blends easily, and each one will last you a long time. This eye-shadow hasn't had any negative effects on my eyes at all - I've not suffered any of the irritation problems I can sometimes get with cheaper brands. Can be a bit costly in the first place to buy, but the fact it lasts so long would make even full price worth it if you buy a colour(s) you love.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Not the eyshadow for me....

          I deicded the other day after some colour reviews that a purple eyeshadow would suit me. I was in Tescos a few days later and decided to browse their make up aisle to have a look. The most relevent shade, and most appropriate price award went to Rimmel, and I ended up buying a pot of their colour rush eyeshadow mono in the shade 'Heather'. It cost me just over £4, which I thought was a reasonable price.

          The eyeshadow is in very basic packaging, which is nto particularly modern or appealing. Rimmel doesn't seem to have moved it's eyeshadow packaging with the times like it has done with a lot of it's other make up. The eyeshadow sits in a black base with a clear plastic lift on and off lid. There is no brush supplied, but I have so many at home that this isn't a problem to me. There is only one colour eyeshadow in the pack and it is 2.5g worth of product.

          The eyeshadow block is a very firm piece of material which you have to rub quite hard with a brush to get off. I have used this with a spongey brush and a bristle brush. I woudl definitely recommend the spongey brush as the powder stays on it until it is applied to your eye, whereas with the other brush the powder drops off it onto your face or under eye. It can make you look tired and like you have bags in your eyes.

          The eyeshadow brushes on quite easily but doesn't have a dramatic or stiking effect. You have to apply quite a thick amount of the product to try and get good coverage and strong colour. On the plus side it does give quite a subtle effect.

          The eyeshadow has reasonable staying power, it dosn't rub off too easily, and only needs to be reapplied about every 6-8 hours.

          The real downside with this is the effect on the skin, I thought it was quite disappointing, and hard to get the shade and colour I wanted. I probably wouldn't buy it again for that reason.

          Disadvantages

          -

          As you may or may not know from my previous reviews I am a big make up fan. I love to pick one or two new things up when i'm shopping to try out. A few months ago I was browsing at the make up in boots and spotted these Rimmel london mono eye shadows. Rimmel is a brand I have used for many years and one that I very much trusted to give good quality. The one colour that really caught my eye was Glitzed (080), a silver glittery eyeshadow, perfect for nights out I thought, so I purchased it.

          When I got home I couldn't wait to try it so I applied some to my eyelid to test it. I was shocked to find that once the very thin layer of silver glittery eye shadow on the top had been used, you were left with nothing but a dull grey colour eyeshadow. This is not what I had expected and certainly not what I paid for. The small amount of silver glittery eye shadow that I did manage to use was not very pigmented and came off after an hour or so.

          I paid £3.99 for this eyeshadow which isn't what I would consider cheap. I would not recommend this to anyone. Rimmel have gone down in my estimations and I will not be buying one of their eyeshadows again.

          Thanks, please rate/comment

            see review

            Rimmel is one of my favorite brands for make-up and I´m usually very pleased with all the products I purchase. Unfortunately the Mono eye shadow is not one of them. The eye shadow comes in only one shade in a small pack that is sold for around 4 pounds at Boots, Superdrugs and some smaller shops. I tried them at Boots and was instantly in love with the shiny yet natural looking colours which I bought right away. 4 pounds for a single shade seems quite much but at least you are not stuck with colours you dislike and will never use.


            - - - - - - Using the Rimmel eye shadow - - - - -


            The first thing I noticed was the packing - which I usually would not review but I´m going to make an exception here. The lid is not attached to the actual base at all so you just pull it off and stick it on top again after use. The problem here is that the lid is quite flimsy and doesn´t really close after a while anymore - obviously not ideal if you want to carry your eye shadow around in your make-up bag. The other negative point is that no applicator brush is included. Especially when buying a light colour I would prefer having a brand new applicator as my other ones are smudged with the darker shades I have. For 4 pounds a pack I would certainly expect a new brush and not having to buy an extra one.

            Anyway, now to the actual eye shadow. I bought 2 different shades, Bronzed and Glitzed - both light, natural looking shades with a light sparkle. I absolutely loved the Bronzed one and it looked great on my eye lid. Applying the powder was very simple and straightforward and the colour stayed on very nicely. However, I felt that the powder was quite loose and I had to clean my cheeks after applying the eye shadow. So this made me doubtful whether it would last a whole day or not but thankfully I was positively surprised - the eye shadow looked good even after a whole day at university. As you would probably expect it did not last a whole party night but that seems to be normal with any powder eye shadow. If you found one that is so long lasting please let me know!

            The reason for the low rating I gave this product was due to the Glitzed shade that I bought as well, just read on to find out why. As I said before I was very pleased with the Bronzed eye shadow and was very much looking forward to try the Glitzed one. It looked great in the tub, all glittery and sparkly and absolutely perfect for a great night out. And honestly, it did! It really lived up to its promise and made my eye lids all "glitzed" - for the first couple of times I used it. The glitter was unfortunately only at the top of the powder and after using this top bit all there was left was a grey-ish, bland and boring looking eye shadow nowhere near worthy of its 4 pounds price tag. I was very disappointed and will certainly not continue buying this product again.


            - - - - - - Would I buy it again? - - - - - -


            This is unfortunately the first Rimmel product that I cannot wholeheartedly recommend. I tried two different shades and only one of them was any good; namely the Bronzed (60) shade which is a very pretty, shiny and naturally looking colour that is perfect for any occasion. The Glitzed (80) was a big disappointment as the glitter did only last for the first couple of times I used it and was basically useless after this; I mean who wants to have a matte grey eye shadow that does not look appealing at all.

            For 4 pounds for a small tub of eye shadow I would expect some more quality especially from such a well-known brand as Rimmel. I was also rather disappointed that no applicator brush was included in the pack. I mean honestly, they don´t cost much and it would have been a nice touch but alas it seems as this is asking for too much.

            As I said, I cannot really recommend this product as one out of two was a total waste of money and a big disappointment. Still I will award it 05 out of 10 possible points as I really liked the Bronzed shade and will probably buy it again.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Good, good-value eyeshadow

            I use Rimmel Colour Rush eyeshadow simply because it's the only brand I've found available that sells a very dark, non-glittery brown colour as a single shot of make-up.

            It tends to cost about the £4 mark for what I now see is a 2.5g little square tablet of the stuff (I get it whenever I'm in a 'Superdrug,' or yes, the dripping with style and class 'one stop Rimmel stand' at Morrisons' supermarket, as they don't always sell the one I'm hooked on at other outlets).

            I also like to have a few of these in reserve, partly for fear that Rimmel will stop making the one particular colour I like (they apparently did for a few months, a couple of years ago) and also because unfortunately - as I don't have much time to put make up on in mornings - I always apply eyeshadow in a rush and thus have a tendency to drop the tablet I'm using on the bathroom floor (these eyeshadows are so bloomin' small to hold onto), where about 8 times out of 10 the make up inside turns to dust and falls out.

            What would improve this product from my point of view is if they'd include one of those tiny little foam-tipped applicators with it, like they used to. I found that extremely handy. It would also be an idea if they called the glittery dark brown variety that's very similar to the one I use a different name; both eyeshadows look near-identical in the packet, and both are called 'Dusk' - but one had mica added to it to make it glisten. To tell the difference between them you need to try the stuff out on your hand - which I find a pain as being slightly obsessive-compulsive about cleanliness, I do worry about other peoples' hand-germs when I'm in the make up testing area of a shop.

            Still, these are good value eye shadows, which go on smoothly, have a good, intense colour and are long-lasting. Definitely a recommended make-up buy.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            .

            This was the second item I picked up from the 3 for 2 offer on all Rimmel products as I don't own that many eye shadows. I read an article once that said brown colours were good for those with green eyes so you might of worked out that this was the shade I opted for although it has creatively been named as smokey quartz. They have a wide range of colours to pick from, bold greens and purples to neutral or pale blues and creams. A nice choice depending on your mood.

            It cost me £3.99 which I suppose isn't too pricey, even if it isn't very big. Packaged in an almost flat square shape it has a clear flip top lid. The shadow also has a slightly raised image of a crown.

            Applying it is simple and easy and as it is a pressed powder it isn't messy to use. So not much of a chance of it leaving marks on your face. I hadn't expected the colour to be quite so bold but I did notice that during the course of the day it did start to fade. Not completely disappearing but a definite paler shade. It's one of those instances where magazine tips come in handy as I had to use a bit of concealer on my eyelids as a base to keep the shadow in place.

            The fact is, it's not too pricey and is a good deal cheaper than over brands like to charge. So I don't think you can complain too much on the quality. It covered my eyelids easily without being too patchy in places. Although it did fade it wasn't as if as soon as I rubbed my eyes it disappeared. It seemed to be a gradual thing and it doesn't take much to do a quick top up, especially as you don't need too much to get quick coverage. You have a wide choice of colours and if you wanted you can combine different shades to get the look you want.

            Overall it isn't that bad. If you just want to wear eyeshadow for everyday wear then I don't see that there is any problem with these. So it doesn't stay put for a lengthy amount of time, there are things you can do to combat this. A product which is fine for short bursts.

            good product, would recommend

            These eyeshadows are quite good. there is quite a big choice of colour for anyone, i have seen shades from grey to green, blue and purple and black, so anyone can find the shade they like. I fell in love with the grey one.It looks like silver on top so i thought at first that it was silver but underneath that silver layer there is grey eyeshadow. The silver is the best bit because it makes your eyes proper sparkle. The grey eyeshadow is a really nice colour too and i use it almost every day, usually as a base as i apply black on top. The grey lasts like all day, its non creasing so i dont really need to reapply them, which is good, they really do last almost all day. The price is not expensive as well which is good so anyone can buy them, i do recommend them!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            average priced eye shadow which comes in a variety of colours, shame it doesn't stay on your eyes

            If you have read a few of my previous reviews you will know I'm a big fan of cosmetics, in particular eye make up and eye shadows. Although I've found some really good eye shadows during my impulse shopping sprees I have also found some poor ones too. One of those has been Rimmel Colour Rush eye shadow.


            ***Packaging***

            The eye shadow comes in a black square case. The pressed powder in inserted in a square panel inside the bottom of the black case. The case has a clear hinged lid which opens fully to reveal the eye shadow. One the front of the clear lid Rimmel is written in white font.

            The eye shadow does not come with an applicator.


            ***Price***
            A 2.5g case of the Rimmel Colour Rush eye shadow costs £4.49 in Boots. This is averagely priced for a high street brand eye shadow, however other brands do offer slightly cheaper products.

            After using the product I feel this is not at all good value for money as the product is so poor and you can get better quality eye shadows for less money.


            ***Application & Results***

            The claims about the Rimmel Colour Rush eye shadow are:
            "Super soft, blendable eye shadow that lasts for up to 8 hours. Creamy pressed powder texture delivers bold colour with long lasting wear."

            The range of colours offered by Rimmel Colour Rush eye shadow is wide and the biggest advantage of this product. There are a number of neutral colours; a number of bright colours and then colours in between. There is something for everyone and you can create a number of different looks. I choose Moonstone a white/ grey colour to highlight my eye lids.

            The positives end at the colours. Application is not as simple as other eye shadows. The pressed powder is very powdery and does not stay on the eye lids easily. It is essential that you use concealor on the eye lids in order for the Rimmel Colour Rush eye shadow to stick, even then application takes time. Even when you use a very small amount of product and build up this way it seems you are using too much product as the powder falls off the eyelid and onto the face and under eye area. This is very frustrating if you are in a rush or are wearing a particularly vibrant colour as this spoils face make up. Because the eye shadow is so powdery it makes blending with other colours difficult as the powder does not glide onto eye instead flakes off.

            Once applied the Rimmel eye shadow gives eye lids quite a strong vibrant colour which is more of a matte colour rather than shimmery... but this does not last for long. After an hour I noticed the colour on my eyelids had faded considerably. After two hours the colour was bearly noticeable except for small traces of eye shadow which had creased on my eye lid. This was particularly disappointing as there was just as much eye shadow on my under eye area as there was on my eye lid. I had also used concealor on my eyelid which had not kept the Rimmel eye shadow in place.


            ***Overall ***

            As you probably would expect from my experience, I would not recommend the Colour Rush eye shadow from Rimmel as it does not live up to its claims. The initial colour of the eye shadow is bold but after only a few hours of wear the colour fades very quickly as the eye shadow wears off the eyelid and creases. The eye shadow is very powdery and actually does not stay on the eye lid, it falls onto the under eye area below. Therefore technically it really does shadow the eyes, just not where you want the shadow!

            This is particularly disappointing as this is not a "cheap" eye shadow; at £4.49 a shot it is relatively expensive and very poor value for money in comparison to better performing products from other high street brands.

            On a positive the rage of colours are great, there is something for everyone; it's just a shame this shadows the under eye area rather than the eyelids! One star!

              Very impressed overall

              I've decided as part of my New Year's resolutions that I'm going to stop just shuffling into work wearing any old thing and with no make-up on. I'm going to make more of an effort. So in my quest to do this I was on the lookout for a cheap and cheerful, neutral shade of eyeshadow which would make me look polished but not necessarily made up.

              I got what I wanted in Rimmel's Colour Rush eyeshadow mono in Delicate Rose. It comes in a little, fairly average, 1 inch square flip lid container, with no applicator. This did not bother me as I always apply makeup with my fingers anyway, but it is something to be aware of.

              The colour looks fairly fleshy and non-descript in the compact and that's how it goes on - it's a great neutral shade for everyday wear and exactly what i wanted. It acts almost like a concealer, covering the dark skin and visible veins on the eyelid very effectively, whilst giving a shimmery pink colour which gives you that polished if not 'made-up' look I was going for.

              I found it silky to apply and it goes on smoothly and evenly. I was impressed with the eyeshadow's lastability too - it lasts all day at work without creasing or sinking into the skin and was still visible by teatime. I would reapply if I was going out in the evening though I have to say, as I fear by about 9pm all that would be left would be a bit of sparkle.

              On reading other reviews for this eyeshadow, opinion seems unanimous that it is a great shadow for blending and also for applying wet for a more intense colour, though this is not something I tried with this particular shade. Overall I was very impressed with this product and would definitely try other shades.

              The Rimmel Colour Rush range comes in a wide range of colours and is available as a Mono, Duo, Trio or Quad compact, ranging in price from £3.99 to £6.49. Also available is the Colour Rush Special Effects range in more intense colours.

              Will give you a great look - day or night, and will last!!

              I recently received this product to review, and am very pleased with the results. I don't usually wear eyeshadow as it ends up creasing or disappearing totally, but I hoped this would be different as Rimmel claims this product lasts 8 hours. And it certainly does. Not only is it long-lasting, but it doesn't crease at all. The colour I received (delicate rose) is quite pale, but shimmers beautifully with a kind of silvery pink colour. A range of colours are available. It is easily applied (I just used a standard eye shadow brush) but did find that the glitter in the eyeshadow does spread a bit (e.g. below the eye) but it is not extremely obvious and so not a major downpoint (in fact probably a good thing on a night out). It is also easy to remove, with normal make-up wipes. I will certainly be buying this product again when mine runs out!!! It is also very reasonably priced!!

              Rimmel Colour Rush Eyeshadow Mono

              As you may have guessed by now I am a bit of a make-up junkie, unfortunately I have to feed my addiction on a budget so therefore I am always on the lookout for cheap products that will make me look, well hopefully fabulous. And that's were this product came in. I'm not usually a big eye shadow fan, I usually find it leaves me looking a bit messy and doesnt last very long but I like the colour of this one and it was pretty cheap so I thought Id give it a shot. So I picked up the purple shade on a shopping trip to Boots and rushed home to try it out.

              The Application:
              Now I find applying eye shadow with my fingers really annoying, I can never get it right and it seems to go everywhere so I was disappointed to say the least to find that this one didnt come with and applicator, so I had to buy that separately.
              So you just get a little bit of this eye shadow onto your finger/applicator and apply as much or as little as you feel like.
              *TIP* If your looking to make this eye shadow a little darker just add the tiniest amount of water, and I mean literally a drop onto the palette and then apply and you will be left with a darker purple shade. DONT WORRY!! Once the palette drys your colour is not effected and it returns to normal.
              The application isn't to difficult and doesnt take much time.

              The Claim:
              Lasts 8 Hours.Super Soft.Blendable.Delivers Bold Colour.

              The Results:
              At first this looked pretty great on my eyes, bright colour which is sure to attract attention to even the tiredest eyes! Unfortunately it wasn't to be and it did not last. I applied this just before I went to work one day and I was shocked and disappointed to find by the time I got there it had started to disappear, so much so you could barely see it anymore. I used all the usual tricks to make it last all day, putting concealer on my eyelids and white eyeshadow first but in the end after all my effort it stayed on my eyes for a round an hour at the most. To say I was disappointed would be a massive understatement!

              Different Shades:
              Heather
              Intense
              Azure
              Taupe
              Spun Gold
              Jet Black
              Moonstone
              Saucy Mint
              Forrest
              You can find a list of all the shades on the Rimmel website, the link to which Ill post at the bottom of this review =]

              Overall Opinion:
              I would highly suggest you don't waste your hand earned money on this eye-shadow!
              It doesnt do anything it promises. It lasts around an hour so you will probably find yourself re-applying about 5 times a day, therefore it will finish very quickly and leave you needing to buy more and more, when it simply isn't worth it. The colours are very nice but not nice enough to save this product from being a bomb in nearly every aspect. It was such a shame as well because I buy lots of Rimmel products and Ive been a fan of the rest of the products I have tried. Disappointing. I advise you don't buy =]

              You can get this eye shadow for around £4 from Boots or Superdrug and I have noticed them knocking about Poundland lately so it's worth having a peek there if your still interested in it.

              Try and SEE

              Introduction

              I am reviewing Rimmel Colour Rush Eyeshadow Mono. I currently own 244-Moonstone and 214-Jet Black. I came across these eyeshadow's when I was in boots one day looking to recreate a style I had seen another girl wearing. I wanted a sort of gradient look in my eyelids going from white gradually into black. This may sound weird but it looked great with black liquid eye liner and lashings of mascara!!

              The Product

              This particular Rimmel eyeshadow comes in all different shades and it depends which shades suit you as to which you will like. The are available to buy in Boots and other beauty stores and Supermarkets. I think mine were about £2.00-£3.00 each. This eyeshadow is in the form of a powder so I advise you to use a little brush with this as it can get quite messy on your fingers. It comes in a 2.5g Pallet with a plastic flip lid making it easy to access. It stays on your eyes for hours and still looks great. Obviously if you rub your eyes and mess around it can begin to fade as any other product would.

              It is made in England and if you want the London look I would really recommend this. It has an average use by date of 30 months, so hopefully you will have used this up by then! It is quite creamy so it fells nice and smooth on your eyes. As you may have noticed I am quite keen on this product because it is not too expensive and why pay more when you can pay less.

              I really recommend this to those ladies who love to make their eyes stand out. There are cheaper eyeshadow's available put they are nowhere near as good. I will rate this product 5/5 because it is easy to find and buy wherever you are. Rimmel is a great brand and is well trusted and us ladies love to look good!

                Disadvantages

                very nice eyeshadow

                Out of many brands rimmel is the one i trust most. I have two of there eye shadows and they are very nice on.

                i found them very easy to apply and very well priced. Iv brought many of the more expensive ones and some of the cheaper alternatives too and all i can say is that in my opinion there is no big difference and i prefer this to the more expensive ones i have brought.

                in fact i actually felt robbed even though it was my own stupidity for buying into marketing and people making products out to be a lot better than they are lol.

                When i got them in comparison to the more expensive eye shadows i actually do find them to be maybe even slightly nicer.

                Don't waste your money on dearer alternatives. Iv bought makeup wholesale lots and tried so many items and wasted 100s in super drug and boots

                just to come to this conclusion and i am about to tell most what they already know its not the price its the quality and sometimes the cheaper alternatives are a lot nicer and you are left with enough to splash out and treat yourself on other things too.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  One of my favourite eye shadows - and affordable!

                  When I'm looking for make-up that doesn't cost the earth, I usually choose Rimmel products, although I've not been thrilled with some of their make-up in the past (see my two Rimmel eye liner reviews for more on that). Their eye shadows tend to be better quality though.

                  The Colour
                  I have this eye shadow in a green shade (Saucy Mint). This is quite a strong colour, and this has been the case for the shades that I've used in the past from this range (bar the more neutral shades). However, the green shade has quite a bit of shimmer to it, and I usually have to apply quite a few strokes of eye shadow to get this effect but once I have done, it is a pretty bright shade. If you want an eye shadow that is quite eye catching, you could do worse than pick up one of these. For a more dramatic colour, you can wet your eye shadow applicator before dipping it into the eye shadow.

                  Application
                  The eye shadow goes on quite smoothly for me, and doesn't crease. Even if I am using two different shades (which I have done in the past), I have never had to spend too long blending to create an even finish.

                  Staying Power
                  On average, this eye shadow tends to stay put for several hours before it starts to come off. This compares pretty well to more expensive eye shadows.

                  Price
                  This eye shadow costs around £2.92 from Superdrug and £3.42 from Boots.

                  Would I Recommend This?
                  As an affordable eye shadow that is easy to apply and gives a strong colour that lasts for a few hours, I would definitely recommend this eye shadow. I also use eye shadows from Maybelline and Bourjois, and this is just as good. Plus, it has the added benefit of being less expensive!
