I haven't used many single eyeshadows as I much prefer to use palettes, trios or quads as I often like to use more than one colour on my lids so it is much easier when they are all together. However when I was in a local discount shop I stumbled across this eyeshadow from Rimmel, I feel in love with the colour and I decided despite it being a single eyeshadow I just had to have it.
The packaging is quite simple but sturdy. I like that the packaging is quite compact as often cheaper brands have really bulky packaging which is really inconvenient if you want to take it travelling as it takes up a lot of space in a makeup bag. However you do not need to worry about that with this eyeshadow as it is very easy to slip into a makeup bag.
These eyeshadows retail at £4.49 and you can get them from Boots and Superdrug but you can find them in discount shops and on discount websites such as Fragrance Direct for much less. I do feel that nearly £5 is quite a lot for 1 eyeshadow when you can buy a whole palette for £4 which has 12 shades in however I think I can justify the price considering the amazing quality of this eyeshadow. I can't speak for the whole range though so there could be potentially some shades that are not as pigmented.
The eyeshadow itself has a lovely embossed pattern as well as the Rimmel crown. The quality of the eyeshadow is fantastic for such an affordable product. The eyeshadow is very soft and easy to blend. The pigmentation is amazing and I was very impressed when I first swatched it. I love to wear this all over my lids when I'm going for a much easier and quicker look. This looks really pretty on especially with a bit of black eyeliner. This is a great colour for when I'm in a rush and want some colour on my lids but don't have time to apply more than one colour. This still looks like I have put in a lot of effort even though I haven't.
Overall I am really impressed with this eyeshadow from Rimmel and I would really like to try more from this range. I do have another shade from this range called Punchy Taupe which I will be reviewing soon.
Have you tried these eyeshadows?
