Shadow on your eyes ♥

Rimmel Glam Eyes Mono Eyeshadow
500 - Posh Peacock
172 - Audacious Amethyst


Ok, so first things first.. Please ignore the untidy, used state of the eyeshadows in the photo's! I got them last week and have been using them both since!
I am a little upset with myself for not taking photos before I started using them, but they were so nice I couldn't resist!

I saw these in Superdrug for £4.49 each but decided to do browsing online first. I buy a lot of my beauty products from fragrancedirect.co.uk and found them on there for a FANTASTIC £1.40 each (click here to view them on fragrance direct)

I love the colours, they are stunning. I am not one who likes subtle eye shadows, I like them to be very bright and to stand out, so for me these are perfect.

My personal favourite of the two is the Posh Peacock, it is so bright and absolutely perfect for the spring/summer time.
I love Audacious Amethyst, it is a lovely lilac colour which has a tiny shimmer to it in some lights.

I am very happy with the texture of the eye shadow and the application is very easy, I personally like my eye shadow to look very bold & opaque, so two layers is perfect for me, however for those of you prefer a more subtle look one application would definitely do the job.

One very little downside to these eyeshadows is that they can get very powdery when applying it to the brush, so before you actually put it onto your eyes gently blow the brush first, to remove any excess eye shadow! Otherwise you do run the risk of having lots of powder fall over your cheeks!


Thank you for reading my post! Please let me know if you have any recommendations for my next one!

    1. I will do! I was thinking the same for your palette you have recently posted a blog on? I am not too sure if I could/how to pull of nude colours, so would be really good if you could post a look with those colours in :D xx

      I used to be exactly the same and would only ever wear blue eyeliner (which was a rare occasion), then about a year ago I purchased a really like blue Mac eye shadow, and have loved the bright colour's ever since :D
