Rimmel Glam Eyes Quad Eyeshadow Review, Swatches, Photos
Rimmel Spring brings about some new shadow quads to play with! I recently purchased the Rimmel Glam Eyes Quad in Smokey Brun which supposedly is a revamp of a palette already available however I never tried the old palette plus I do think, just looking at the products, that this version versus the old version has a newer formula but don’t quote me here.
This is a fairly inexpensive budget pick for creating an easy smoky eye look in seconds. The simplicity of application, vevety formula of the shadows, and price make it a rather great beauty budget pick.
Shall we peep it?
An eyeshadow palette featuring four shades of shadows to create a single smoked out eye look!
First off I will say I actually like the packaging. It’s simple, to the point, and easy to travel with and store. The simple black packaging makes up for the lack of fanfare, sparkly bits, and just general prettiness by being more practical, travel friendly and easy to store plus you aren’t going to be all “OMG, I can’t use it because it’s too pretty!”
Formula is awesome. At first the velvety look of the shadows had me skeptical as I was worried they would have a frosty finish but they apply dreamy! The texture has a soft, silky feel that glides onto eyes and leaves behind quite a nice color pay off. You are definitely looking at a quality formula here that will apply easily and blend out without fuss or drama. Mind you, pigmentation isn’t in the realms of MAC and you’re not looking at boldness here however you’ll be more than pleased if you embrace a more natural finish.
The quad I selected, Smoky Brun, contains four shades that create an easy smoky brown look. Instructions on the back of the palette make for an easy application technique so you can leave your eyeshadow application degree at home as it’s a matter for a few steps to get a stunning eye look.
Smoky Brun features a creamy beige shade, a taupe beige, a chocolate brown, and a lighter bronz-y brown. All the shades can easily be used on their own or together.
The overall look you can create is a more sophisticated, work friendly smoked out eye that’s quite pretty and easy to do!
Nothing bad here!
- Anyone seeking a professional look for the office at a budget price!
- Anyone who wants a budget friendly eye quad with good color pay off and an easy formula to work with.
- Ladies with lovely brown eyes (Smoky Brun is an ideal palette for brown eyes).
- Anyone with oily lids (the silky smooth formula will adhere to oily lids well).
- Those who love bolder shades of shadow from brands such as MAC (this has great pigmentation but comes across more subtly).
If you’re looking for a classy eyeshadow quad and love a more natural, nude look, Rimmel Glam Eye Quad Eyeshadows should do you well as the price and formula are an excellent choice for the no nonsense girl who wants a polished look but doesn’t want alot of drama surrounding the application of it. I thought the palette was incredibly easy to use, had a great price tag at a little over $5 bucks, and a really nice formula. Count me surprised as I was bracing for the worst here. As I mentioned I can’t really compare it the original Smoky Brun Palette but I do think that this is possibly a better quality of shadow than the older ones.
All in all a great budget pick that makes shadow application an easy breezy experience in the AM! If nudes aren’t your thing there are also a purples, greens, and blue quads to choose from!
