The matte eyeshadow palette: Rimmel Glam Eyes HD Brixton Brown 5 colour eyeshadow palette review

Rimmel Glam Eyes Hd in Brixton Brown is a 5 colour eyeshadow palette with a selection of dark earthy shades.

Having tried Rimmel’s Glam Eyes HD quad in Golden Eye I was expecting a lot from this palette in terms of pigmentation and intensity.

When swatched only shade 1 and 4 have any real pigmentation and shimmer whilst the other 3 shades are very dark and matte.

I felt shade 1 was very difficult to apply and even after reapplying several times you can’t actually see the shade at all. The colours don’t merge together very well and if it wasn’t for shade 4 lighting the area up the overall effect would be very dark.

For those who like matte eyeshadows this is the perfect eyeshadow palette for you, with predominantly matte shades and very little shimmer. If however you prefer your eyeshadow to be light reflecting and eyecatching Golden Eye is probably the better shade for you.

I give it 2/5
