How to create a smokey eye for a evening out

Rimmel’s Glam Eyes HD in Black Cab makes smokey eyes even easier to recreate with the colour coordinated grey palette.

The Union Jack theme really represents how British Rimmel is and defines the London look. Each shade was really pigmented and I noticed a real shimmer when swatching the eyeshadow.

The light really reflects on the eyeshadow and with a couple of falsies and a bold red lipstick will certainly have you turning heads. The one major issue I found was that when I applied the powder to the brush it started to flake away and fall out which will lessen the longevity of the product.

I give it 4/5


  • Coordinated colour palette
  • Each shade is highly pigmented and has a real shimmer to it
  • Highly reflective shades
  • Unique union jack design


  • If you press a little too hard on the shadow it falls out in clumps, especially the centre highlight shade
