Review: Rimmel London Glam Eyes Mono Eyeshadow in Smokey Quartz

When I was younger I used to think that huge, black panda eyes looked absolutely perfect on me. I thought the black complimented my blue eyes wonderfully and I couldn't ever imagine me not wearing layers and layers of my beloved Rimmel London Kohl Pencil around my eyes like a frame. Fortunately I have seen the error of my ways and I've realised that a little eyeliner is good. Half a pencil on my waterline however, is not. Luckily I now have a little obsession with eyeshadow, which brings us onto the product I'm reviewing today.

A few days before I went jet-setting off to Cyprus I was in Boots with my sister and I started looking at the Rimmel London stand before spotting the Rimmel London Glam Eyes Mono Eyeshadows. I spotted a lovely taupe brown and decided to buy it without even having a look at the grubby tester. I was positively certain it would be for me!

The eyeshadow I bought was the Rimmel London Glam Eyes Mono Eyeshadow in Smokey Quartz and the colour is a gorgeous golden bronze with a taupey shimmer which suits my blue eyes far better than the heavily eyelined eyes I used to sport. Rimmel London have even put on the back of their eyeshadows which eye colours would most suit the shades which is such a clever idea as some people don't know which colours suit them and which don't so this is a really insightful way of knowing which eyeshadow to buy.

The eyeshadow itself if incredibly pigmented and it's so easy to apply. It applies with such ease and you don't need 8 layers to build up to an opaque colour. Also I don't find I get any fall out whatsoever. I don't apply a primer beforehand and most days this eyeshadow has lasted literally all day. However with the recent hot weather I have found that it has creased once but even then, that was towards the end of the day and it lasted about 6 hours beforehand.

I really, really, really love this shade. I have worn it literally every single day since I bought it and I haven't even made a dent in the pan yet. A little goes a long way as it's so pigmented so you definitely get your money's worth.
