Rimmel Glam Eyes Quad Eyeshadow

Rimmel London Glam' Eyes Quad Eyeshadows are part of the line's spring launches along with the single and trio eye shadows. These quads are customized according to different eye colors and come in 12 complementary shades.

'Smokey Brun' is an everyday, neutral palette with a mix of warm bronzy-brown shades that complement all eye colors. If I like a color, I would try it immaterial of what eye color it is meant for. All shades in this quad are very work appropriate.The dark brown makes an excellent crease color!

'Beauty Spells' is a combination of shimmery shades that look great for an evening look. This quad makes for a great dramatic look too. I would pair it with a nude lip color to complete the look.

'Smokey Blue', as the name suggests is a combination of greyish blues and a shimmery, white highlight. There is also a lighter shade of blue which is rather chalky.

'Smokey Purple' is my next favourite quad since it contains a combination of shimmery purples and a matte dark purple that looks great as a crease color. The highlight color, which is a light pink does have quite a bit of fallout but the quad as such makes for a nice daytime look.

What I like about these quads:
  • The shades are smooth, quite pigmented and blend very well.
  • With a primer underneath, they remain crease-free for hours.
  • At just over five bucks, they are a great, affordable drugstore picks.
  • The shade selection is great. From everyday neutrals to dramatic smokey colors, there is a quad for everyone.
The not so good things about these quads:
  • Certain highlight/lighter shades seem quite chalky and have some fall out especially the ones in the Smokey Blue and Smokey Purple quads.
Overall, these are easy to work with, great pocket-friendly drugstore picks. Especially the 'Smokey Brun' quad which is a no brainer that will save you a lot of time.
