Rimmel Glam Eyes Quad Review, Swatches, FOTD
Rimmel released the Glam Eyes quads this Spring to replace their old quads (I think). I was intrigued by the new quads based on the good reviews I've read on the Glam Eyes single shadows and because the new packaging is appealing. There were several shades released and I picked up Sweet Smoulder for the pink shadow in the palette.
Sweet Smoulder #013 ($4.99) composes of a silver-white with a hint of blue, champagne gold, shimmery black, and shimmery pink. The texture and pigmentation varies depending on the shade. The top highlight silver-white blue is not pigmented and on the chalky side, it really doesn't do much as a highlight shade. The shimmery black isn't shimmery when used on the eye and a little hard to blend. The champagne gold and pink are the best of the bunch, smoother and more pigmented.
In summary, nice packaging but the shadow quality is lacking. I have additional product and swatch pictures as well as a face of the day I did using the palette below.
