Rimmel Glam Eyes HD 5 Colour Eyeshadow in Golden Eye review

Get a smokey eye look with a difference with Rimmel Glam Eyes in Golden Eye

Rimmel Glam Eyes in Golden Eye is my go to eyeshadow palette when I want to create a smokey eye look. The palette has varying shades of greys/silver and gold that work in conjunction to create a gorgeous smokey eye, perfect for a night on the town. I love how the gold makes it stand out from the traditional look.

Each colour is highly pigmented and has a real sparkle when the light hits it. The palette comes with a eyeshadow brush with two sets of applicator tips so you can use it on the go.

On the back of the set is a instruction diagram to coordinate how to apply each shade to various parts of the eye.

I began by highlighting the arch of the eyebrow with a silver shade (1) before adding a darker silver near the inner corner of the eye (2). I contrasted this darker silver shade with a deep grey (3) and added a gold to the centre of each lid to break up the grey (4). Finally I shaded a deep charcoal on the outer edge of the eye to create the ultimate smokey eye. (5)

I love this look and how well the colours go with each other. The shadows are long lasting and the colours still maintained their intensity well into the evening. I really recommend you pick it up if you’re planning a night out for Christmas!

I give it 4/5
