Rimmel Glam Eyes Liquid Eyeliner
Advantages: Easy to apply, long wearing, good price
This review is of the Rimmel Glam Eyes liquid eyeliner. I own this product in black, the shade is called 'black glamour', however it is also available in a purple shade called 'intense plum' and a grey shade called 'diamond kiss'. I don't wear eyeliner a lot, mostly just with eyeshadow if I am heading out for an evening or for a special daytime occasion. Before buying this, I had never used liquid eyeliner before. I wanted to try it and felt happier buying a cheaper brand first of all just to see if I liked the look.
I bought this Rimmel eyeliner in Boots and at the time it cost me £5.29. Boots online tells me that it still costs this price and that Rimmel products are currently on a buy one get one half price offer. I think £5.29 is a reasonable price for an eyeliner product particularly as some of the more expensive brands are charging twice as much or possibly even more!
This product contains 3.5ml of eyeliner. It comes in a plastic tube with a long lid. Attached to the end of the lid is a thin brush. I have found that when I open the eyeliner, the brush has quite a lot of eyeliner on the end of it. I usually wipe some of the excess off on the inside of the rim. The long handle is easy to hold and makes applying the eyeliner quite easy.
I usually apply a thin line of this to my upper eyelid just along the lash line. I then allow it to dry before applying eyeshadow and mascara to create a smokey eyes look. If I am going for a more dramatic look, I will apply the eyeliner on top of the eyeshadow. I find that this eyeliner emphasises the natural shape of my eyes and makes them stand out more. Overall it improves my appearance and gives me a more "dressed up" look.
Before trying, I was worried that this liquid eyeliner would be hard to apply. Due to the fine brush and the long handle, it is actually quite easy to apply and I quickly got the hang of it. On one occasion I did get a small amount of this eyeliner in my eye and found that it was very stingy and I had to remove my make up and rinse my eye out.
I have very sensitive skin particularly around the eyes and if I wear too much eye make up it can cause a reddening of my eyelids. As I have never worn this eyeliner without eyeshadow, I cannot say whether it actually worsens my eyes or not! I don't imagine it would cause any problems for those with normal skin.
When I have worn this eyeliner for an evening out I have found that it has stayed in place well and has looked the same at the end of the night as it did when first applied with no smudging. It is also easily removed using my normal cleansing routine.
Overall I am pleased with the quality of this eyeliner and think that it is sold at a really reasonable price. It has made me consider using more of Rimmel's products. Thanks for reading/rating and I hope you found my review useful.
Summary: Makes eyes bolder and more defined
