Some time ago I found those small Rimmel eye shadows palettes on a really big sale and just had to get some. I got two Glam'Eyes Quad Eyeshadows in Thrill Seeker (top left) and Green Sapphire (top right). I also got one of those Union Jack lookalikes Glam'Eyes HD Eyeshadows. I didn't went for the classical Union Jack shades though. I chose the black and white version called Black Cab.
The best thing about these Rimmel eye shadows is the packaging. They are perfect for travelling as they're quite small and handy. Because of the square shape they're also very easy to store. What I also really like about them is that they are very easy to use, especially when you're in a rush and don't have time to pick from a wide range of different shades. You just pick one of these and viola, the idea for a perfect eye make-up magically appears!
Those shadows unfortunately aren't very pigmented, especially when it comes to lighter shades like the light pink champagne in Green Sapphire or light grey in Thrill Seeker. The pigmentation of darker shades is better but they still need to be built up. They last about 8 hours without creasing which for me, an owner of oily eyelids, is very good. I have only tried them with eye shadow primer though therefore I can't really justify the lasting power without using the primer first. The applicator provided with the palette is impossible for me to use. I totally prefer using my own brushes. with them the shadows are easy to blend. The next good thing about them is the price but only because I got them on sale. If I paid the full price, I think I would be disappointed.
As for the shades my favourites are definitely the greens, especially the light khaki and shimmery sapphire in Green Saphire. They are perfect for creating the green smoky eye which I have been really loving lately. I also love using the Black Cab's shimmery white and Green Sapphire's pink champagne as highlighters.
