Review: Rimmel London Products

Rimmel had a BOGO a couple weeks ago I believe at Long's Drug and I also picked up a lipstick in Birthday Suit. But first for the eyeshadow. I'm very disappointed. This is the Smokey Purple quad and cost around $5. The texture was slightly chalky, except for the darkest purple in the upper left corner which was really chalky and the pigmentation was not very good as you can see in the swatches. The darkest purple color was the worst in the quad.

Size comparison with e.l.f. eyeshadow brush
Smokey Purple quad in natural light
Smokey Purple quad with flash

~shadows come in singles, duos, trios & quads

~low pigmentation, sheer, very buildable
~not worth the price of around $5
~little product & the size of each shadow is very small (refer to pics above)

(*note: a grade of 1 out of 5 stars would be a Max Factor eyeshadow)

Lasting Finish Lipstick in Birthday Suit
Birthday Suit lipstick is a nude terracotta color. I can best describe it as having a peachy-orange undertone. The coverage leans more toward the middle and the moisture level of this lippie is pretty good. This lipstick was around $5 also. Forgive me for not having the exact prices because I do not have my receipt anymore.

~hmm....cute embossed crown design on the top of the cap
~pretty moist

~bulky packaging
~smells like pink bubblegum
~not long-lasting

LIPSTICK GRADE: 3 out of 5 stars

I bought the Rimmel Quad in Smokey Purple as well, and I was also disappointed with the chalky texture and lack of pigmentation. However, I tried using a base (a random light purple cream shadow), and that definitely helped the color payoff. It was still was light, but much better than on its own. Of course, I'm not into super dramatic looks anyway...
