==Rimmel Glam Eyes Quad Eye Shadow==
I tend to use a fair bit of Rimmel make up due to the fact that it is one of the more affordable brands and I have a few favourite products that they make. There always seems to be some sort of special offer on when buying this brand in Boots and this makes it even more affordable.
This Glam Eyes Quad Eye Shadow is something I bought when there was a three for two offer on (isn't there always) and although the RRP of the eye shadow is £6.99 pence it worked out a fair bit cheaper when you divide the final amount pain by the three items purchased.
I was drawn to this set of eye shadows because of the fact that there was four different shades in the one little box. All of the tones in the "Sun Safari" shade were right up my street as these (like the one pictured) are browns, creams and generally a fairly natural little pallet so this is of course the set I chose. There were a good few other shades and colours to choose from including a dark, smoky eyes one which I did ponder over as something a little difference but opted for the safe bet.
The set of four eye shadows come all together in a little flip top box although each of the different shades have there own little section. There is a little double ended padded application brush which I have never used as I have a whole ton of larger more professional brushes which I tend to use instead but this is a nice bonus to have for those who don't have their own brushes. The packaging of the eye shadows looks pretty good and works well at protecting the product inside.
The look of the eye shadow is really nice as the product has a high shine and shimmer to it I like the fact that they have printed into the product the Rimmel crown logo although once the eye shadow has been used a few times this will disappear as the product is used up. Each of the eye shadows has a diamond etched pattern to it and this again adds to an overall nice appearance of the product itself.
Using the product couldn't really be any easier and is just like any other product of this type. The eye shadow needs only a few circles with a make up brush in order to get a good amount of the powder released and onto the application brush. I always blow off any excess as I don't want to get this under my eye or even worse in my eye and irritate my contact lenses.
The different tones of the quad box all can be used for different sections of the eye lid and I tend to start with the lightest of the shades at the inner area of my eye and work outwards applying the different tones as I go ending up with the darkest in the outer corner of my eye. There is a brief description on how to apply these eye shadows in the correct manner on the back of the box which is handy to know and good for people who are unaware that this is the best method to get the nicest look.
The light powder is bold in each colour and goes on very true to its appearance in the box. It is smooth and soft feeling and blends in nicely to each of the other shades with perfect ease. The bold shimmer that it has when in the box doesn't' seem quite as bold when applied to the eye lid which is a good thing as I don't like anything way too glittery but the shimmer contained in these eye shadows seems just about perfect to me. A little of the product does seem to go a long way and the lasting effects of the product on my eyes last all day and still look really good when I am taking my make up off in the evening.
I like the fact that all of the tones work well together and none of the shimmer gets stuck in the creases of my eyes like other shimmer eye shadows I have used tend to do. This product offers a lot of choice in the fact that you can either use all four of the shades together or of course opt for using one at a time and it also offers lasting effects throughout the day which is always a really good aspect.
I really like this set of little eye shadows. There is nothing that I can find to complain about as so many boxes are ticked when using it. The price is affordable and the overall use of the product is long lasting and easy. I think it has to be a tops coring product and therefore I am awarding an easy 5 out of 5 stars and I would highly recommended it to everyone and anyone. Seeing as there are quite a few different quad shades to choose from there has got to be a set that suits your needs!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
